Very helpful and thorough

I was Taught the 11 body system and there functions along with the the properties of a cell and it’s function, genes, how do work punnet squares, mieosis and mitosis, how to balance chemical equations and how to add, subtract, divide and multiply uncommon denominators. I liked how the tutoring was easy to understand, the tutor was very nice and sent videos after the session that were helpful to me to prior to the learning. All of the information acquired here helped me pass the Teas test.

Goal oriented and motivating Tutor

Ms. Jade has been helping our daughter since Aug 2019. My daughter had significant delays in reading. She boosted her reading almost 2 grade levels in few months of intensive support. We had tried multiple approaches before coming across Ms. Jade. She is the first one to show so much progress in my daughters reading. The school team were impressed also with her reading gains. Highly recommend her if you are looking at targeted help.

GREAT ELA TEACHER

My experience with Jade was phenomenal. She was friendly, and immediately put me at ease! She helped me successfully pass the Praxis II 5047 writing portion. I scored 9/12 on the portion she tutored me on. We met for two sessions and I know my success can be attributed to our sessions.

Jade is always on time and prepared for the lesson. She was great at developing a rapport with my 5 year old and understanding his learning needs. Her learning plan is diverse and adaptable and most off all successful. I have seen his growth in just a few weeks.
