"Great tutor!"

This review was written by the mother of the student, not the student herself.

Contrary to the erroneous claims made by this mother, I effectively coached this student and provided her with top-notch tricks, practice and quizzes, receiving verbal confirmation from this student on numerous occasions regarding how helpful I was to her learning process. It was a pleasure tutoring this student.

This student's mother has failed to understand that tutors on WyzAnt are allowed to request a rate increase. This student was my first student ever through WyzAnt and I quickly realized (after beginning to tutor this student) that $40 an hour (considering WyzAnt's commission and the fact that I had to pay as much as $6 to park to tutor this student and drive 63.4 miles round-trip to tutor her) was far too little. It was actually costing me money to tutor this student.

This student's mother was consistently inflexible throughout my time spent tutoring this student. The mother only responded or voiced concern when she wanted to complain. I merely requested a rate change so that I could cover the expenses of tutoring this student and make a little bit of money in the process, just like every other tutor on WyzAnt.

Furthermore, during the final two weeks of this student's course, my best friend and grandfather passed away. My grandfather was ending his year-long battle with leukemia, so I had to be with him during the last week and a half of his life. He was my priority during this time.

I wish this student the best and realize that miscommunication occurs. It would have been nice for the mother to communicate with me professionally regarding her concerns and matters that require clarification instead of assuming the worst and taking so much time to write a review with the intent to dissuade future students from seeking my expert tutoring.

Approved subjects

In most cases, tutors gain approval in a subject by passing a proficiency exam. For some subject areas, like music and art, tutors submit written requests to demonstrate their proficiency to potential students. If a tutor is interested but not yet approved in a subject, the subject will appear in non-bold font. Tutors need to be approved in a subject prior to beginning lessons.

Macintosh

I am an advanced Mac User. I have taken classes in Photoshop and digital media, as well as completed by Master's degree online with my Mac. I have much experience with computers and am fluent in the use of Macs and PC's. I have even trained medical doctors on how to use a Mac and how to use it for special functions.
