Does your student lack motivation? Does he/she hate studying and find it difficult? Are they overwhelmed and don't know where to start? Do they lack certain reading, writing, or critical thinking skills that are holding them back from doing well? Did they score below the 60th percentile?

I can help.

I will give your students the guidance they crave. I will help your students gain the knowledge and skills they may be lacking. I make each student feels safe in their own abilities and never judge. And ultimately I will give them the confidence to continue studying on their own. This confidence will also serve them in the years of college that lies ahead.

I have been tutoring students in SAT (math/reading/writing) for the last five years and have developed a method for following the particular strengths and weaknesses of my students. I believe in connecting specifically with each students' interests and goals to make the work engaging and memorable. And I believe in being patient with each student.

Please contact me if you're interested in working with me. I will set up a phone call to chat further and see if your child and I are a good fit. Looking forward to hearing from you!

Excellent Teacher

Very patient with my daughter and she as shown improvements to her comprehension and reading skills. Jenny is so far the best tutor I have found in WyzAnt.
