Special Needs

ADHD,

ADHD

I have tutored several high school students (ages 15 all the way to early 40s) in the Dallas metroplex (Rockwall and Garland) in English and in Algebra. All of those students have received an "A" in his or her course. I have helped them be successful in their classes/courses. My strategy was to always be very brief in my explanation of the concept and focus on his or her kin esthetic ability or desire (the desire to move while learning). I accomplished this by showing an example of a problem and then having him or her simulate what I have just done. This worked very well for all of the ADD/ADHD students that I have had. I approach each student and determine what in particular causes their attention deficiency. I hone in on this and make learning fun and steer away from techniques that are "boring" to them which, as a result, may trigger their ADD/ADHD.
Hard of Hearing,

Hard of Hearing

I am very patient with students that are hard at hearing and/or need more detailed instruction and help with their classes. I have worked with a student in the past who had difficulty hearing and I emphasized a system that allowed the student to utilize her other senses (such as sight and touch) to compensate for her deficiency in hearing. I focus on illustrating the material more visually versus speaking through the material. I also created a system to where the student could show me where and what they were not understanding.

Great communication

Simone has been responsive and answers question you may have as a parent. Prior to our first lesson we had a phone conversation to discuss my child’s needs, my expectations and her process. I appreciated this as some tutors I come across just use the messaging platform to communicate. We were able to get details from each other that probably would not of come up via texting. Our first math SAT lesson went great. She assigned homework and called me to provide details of the lesson. We will do another lesson with Simone.

Thank You So Much

Hi Simone! I'm hoping you remember us. You tutored Caleb a couple of years ago, and then recommended some books for our other son, Joshua, to study for ASVAB as well. I just wanted to let you know that Caleb finally reached his dream of becoming a Marine, and we owe a *huge* debt of gratitude to you for helping him get there! If you recall, he is dyslexic, and had not been able to pass the timed ASVAB, so he had kind of given up. Then big brother joined the Army and rekindled the dream, and he fought until he made it! He ships out Monday for boot camp. Joshua is about 1/2 way through his AIT (68W, Combat Medic). I can't tell you how strong the Army/Marine rivalry is here between brothers! So fun! We had planned to have a big send off for Caleb, and would have loved for you to come, however, with all the COVID thing, that's not happening. I know it would give him a kick to hear from you, so if you'd like to call or text before he leaves for the MEPS hotel Sunday afternoon, his number is xxx-xxx-xxxx. If not, that's ok. I just wanted to say thank you so much for helping them reach their dreams.

Simone J.

Amazing tutor, I was super self conscious of my age and lack of knowledge in math. She was so patient and kind with me. I literally texted her when going to take my exam (the accuplacer). Her support went beyond the tutor session. I couldn't praise her enough!
