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.

Susan, 49 lessons with Simone

Excellent tutor!

Simone is a wonderful tutor. My son took and failed the ASVAB a few months ago without having prepared very well. When this happened, I went searching for a tutor and I am so grateful that I found Simone. She is friendly, professional, knowledgeable and an awesome communicator. She kept me informed of his progress and provided extra materials for him to look at in between classes. My son just passed the ASVAB! His score improved an overall 13 points! I can not say enough positive things about Simone. If you need an ASVAB tutor, give her a call!

Kimberly, 12 lessons with Simone

David, 10 lessons with Simone

She is The Best Tutor.

My son has been trying to join the Air Force for the last year and was unable to get a score high enough. In fact his last score was a 24 and you need a 50 or better on the ASVAB to qualify. After 3 months of going to Simone J. once a week his score improved to a 52! She is solely responsible for his improvement. She kept me informed with his progress and filled him with confidence. She is simply THE BEST thing that happened to my son. HIRE HER!
