My 17 yr old son was very hesitant to work with a tutor to prepare for the SAT exam. Like alot of teenagers- my son didn't feel it necessary to get additional help. After meeting with Todd for the initial lesson, my son decided it would be a good match and agreed to work with Todd. They have been steadily working for months. Todd is very methodical and pragmatic in his approach to preparing for the SAT and my son felt encouraged and more confident with every lesson. The SAT is in a week so it will be interesting to see how much my son's score will improve, but regardless of the improvement- we feel definite that my son will go into the exam with the necessary strategies and with much more confidence. I would highly recommend Todd - my son referred one of his friends who apparently is equally satisfied, Todd was committed, punctual and thorough for every lesson.
Todd does a great job working with students with writing issues. He also does a great job with SAT prep. My son felt very prepared for his SAT exam.
Todd had immediate and ongoing impacts on our daughter's approach to, and performance on, SAT materials. Her skills and confidence have grown steadily and she is excited about taking both the SAT and ACT tests in June. We highly recommend Todd.
Todd has just recently begun tutoring my son and I am so happy that I chose him. He is knowledgeable and wonderful with Isaiah. He is engaging and is great at explaining not only the skills necessary to be successful with his testing, but is also wonderful with teaching him testing strategy as well. I think that we made a great decision in our choice.
Thank you Todd for working with my daughter over the past several weeks to prepare her for the upcoming SAT test. I have no doubt she will go into this test "armed" with the many testing strategies you have practiced with her and a much higher confidence level.
Your patience, vast wealth of knowledge and excellent teaching skills have been much appreciated.
Todd S. is a very knowledgeable and motivating tutor. His college testing strategies have been a great help for my daughter. She needed to earn a rather challenging SAT score to acquire a certain scholarship for an academically high standard university which she was unable to do until Todd S. tutored her. Todd S was able to utilize his SAT Testing Strategies for my daughter to comprehend that other tutors were unable to do. Her new SAT scores exceeded the scholarship requirement needed. He is definitely a top choice for any teen who needs tutoring especially for those preparing for SAT's or ACT's. You won't be disappointed.
He knows a lot about the SAT test. And is really good at explaining strategies. He also noticed that my daughter felt down about the first test and lost confidence. He built her confidence up by explaining to her she is smart and, why he knows that she is. That she just didn't know the right strategies for the SAT test. After the meeting I noticed a big change in her confidence.
I have been VERY pleased with Todd as a tutor for my twin daughters SAT prep (though the proof will be with the scores). He is kind, flexible, and conscientious- he really seems to be vested in the outcomes of his charges. My daughters have a great affinity with Todd and seem to have benefited already from the lessons. In addition, I appreciate the fact that he is cognizant of cost - the twins email him practice tests at home which he corrects and analyzes, which saves valuable lesson time for addressing issues.
I would highly recommend Todd S. to any who wants an intelligent, efficient and hard working tutor. He was able to evaluate my daughter and address her weaknesses right from the start. Todd S. was prepared and organized. He had a short time to achieve our goal but he developed a strategy that worked.
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.
