I do this so that students can recognize these incorrect answers for various questions as they go throughout this course.

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.

I am able to assess the weaknesses based on a diagnostic that I provide during our first lesson. I then implement strategic techniques to ensure students' comprehend the material. I focus on illustrating the certain "traps" and "pitfalls" that students can fall into (for example: not reading the problem correctly or not answering the right question). I do this so that students can recognize these incorrect answers and avoid them. I implement mock STAAR tests to try to simulate the environment and also deal with test issues such as anxiety or lack of confidence.

Knowledgeable and patient tutor

Very helpful to the point that Ms. Simone was able to help me work out some of the problems that I needed to finish. She worked around my schedule to make things happen for me.

Very helpful

I'm studying for the TEAS exam for nursing, and I've been having trouble with the reading section. Simone and I went through some practice questions, and she provided me some wonderful advice and pointers.

Nurse, 1 lesson with Simone

I enjoy working with her

She is informative, knowledgeable and great personality. She gives you insights on studying. We haven’t been working too long, but I am pleased with what we have accomplished so far.

A+ Tutor that made an enormous difference

Simone tutored my rising college sophomore son in online College Algebra taken in the summer semester. In high school my son had inconsistent performance in all of his math classes, and I believe that stemmed from a lack of understanding fundamental concepts and how to apply those to the problems. I think the highest semester grade he ever had in any high school math class was a C, maybe a B- So, I was extremely concerned about him taking college algebra over the summer, online and that the results might be less than optimal. I found Simone’s profile, read it and some of her other reviews and hoped she would be a fit for him. I heard back from her quickly, she asked me some questions about my son, I shared my concerns about taking the course online and the difficulty, she asked to review the class syllabus and explained her approach to tutoring math, which is to really help the student understand all of it. The why AND the how. Simone worked with my son 2-3 times a week throughout the summer, and as he continued to work with her, not only did his performance in the class improve, his confidence in his ability to handle the homework, quizzes and the tests improved! She was patient with him, took time to dive deep into the concepts so that he would gain a deeper understanding that would sustain him through the coursework to come. He truly understands math now and hasn’t gotten rattled by an exam, something that up until now has been a struggle. Prior to the final he had a 93.5....and he’s confident he did very well today on his final. Simone consistently provided me with updates and insights into their sessions, was very responsive and my son enjoyed working with her very much, so much so that she will be his go-to for any other math classes he has to take in the future. Highly, highly recommend. You will not be disappointed!

Amazing Tutor For Math/TEAS

I came to Simone looking for help with math, as I had taken the TEAS exam and needed to boost my score. I struggled with a lot of the basic math concepts that I felt I had never really mastered in school, but Simone has helped me come a long way. She is a very patient and kind tutor, and her lessons are very easy to understand. One thing I love about tutoring with Simone is that she will listen to what her students need, and will adjust the way she teaches her lessons to benefit the students' learning. I also really appreciated that Simone would take the time to make sure I fully understood each concept before moving onto the next one, and she would also send me practice problems to do on my own, and we would go over them together if I still felt I was struggling to grasp the concept. I can't recommend Simone enough! She has made me feel much more confident in my understanding of math, and I feel better prepared for the TEAS exam. Thank you Simone! UPDATE: I just took my TEAS exam, and my score is so much better! On my last attempt I had an overall score of 74.0% and a math score of 78.1%, but after tutoring with Simone I got an overall score of 82.7% and a math score of 90.6%. Thank you! Thank you! Thank you! Simone, you have helped me improve my score so much, and I am so grateful for everything you have done for me.

ASVAB

I’ve been getting tutored with Simone for good while now. Out of all my tutors or teachers I’ve had in my life, she would be #1 in my book. She is really patient with you and if you still don’t understand something she will use something else to help you understand fully. She is very knowledgeable in everything I’ve asked her. I needed help in the math portion of the ASVAB and she is a math genius for sure! There wasn’t a math problem she couldn’t explain to me how to do it 5 different ways for me to understand. Just incredible! She will definitely build up your confidence while you have sessions with her. I’ve never in my life felt so confident with my math until I started taking sessions with her. Truly a blessing to have her as my tutor and I wouldn’t be where I’m at if it wasn’t for her! I highly recommend 10/10. Best ever!
