Leona is an exceptional tutor. She worked with my son over the last few months to prepare him for the ASVAB. After an initial meeting, she developed a detailed plan for my son and went above and beyond to prepare him for his test. She met him often and was always prepared for the tutoring session. She was able to explain complex material clearly, and made subjects, previously difficult for my son, very understandable. My son did GREAT on the ASVAB and now has several options for various jobs in the Navy. Leona is the BEST!!
She was gracious enough to meet us on short notice. My son enjoyed Leona, she really helped him understand the material easily. Thanks Leona!
Leona was well prepared, and was always helping my daughter out. She made study guides with all of the things she needed to know, to help her prepare for the exam. Very patient, and knows what she is doing. Made my daughter a lot more confident going into the science mid-term.
Ms. Leona is a very patient and passionate tutor. She helps me look at things in a different way. Math is my weakest subject, but she always shows me an easier way to solve problems. She's very focused on my needs and works with me on a very steady pace. I can really understand my weaknesses and strengths when working with Ms. Leona. She challenges me to better myself so I can easily am accomplish my goals. Ms. Leona is an awesome tutor! Thank you so much!!
Ms. R truly wants each student to excel at each subject. She is extremely dedicated to this job and puts forth her best effort to make sure that she can provide material to cover any topics the student is struggling with. She is extremely knowledgeable and can help with a wide variety of subjects, which I found was incredibly helpful. She is also very patient and always has something positive to say which provides a very comfortable environment to work in.
Leona was very prompt in returning our call and setting up tutoring session. She is very professional yet very relatable. She is a real encourager. Our daughter was thrilled with what they had accomplished in her first session. "I understood more in that one session than I have all year in class." I would highly recommend Leona to come along side to help give your student the confidence they need to accomplish their goals.
After four meetings with Leona our daughter's grade has greatly improved. We could not be more pleased!
94% on her last math test! Yeah for our tutor Leona!
Great tutor! My Grades and test scores increased after the 2nd session. Leona has remarkable patience and relates well with me. I am a hands on learner and she gets that. Instead of her working out the problems on the white board herself she lets me due it so that she can see what I am doing wrong. She brings in extra worksheets from offline which helps me a lot. She continues to encourage me and gives my mom feedback after each session.
My confidence has increased a great deal and I feel less stress when it comes to studying and taking test.
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.
I am a licensed Civil Engineer, and have taken and passed the required Reading, Math, Science, English, and Language usage criteria to effectively tutor for the AFOQT exam.
In addition, I've tutored several students for the ASVAB exam, and my last student scored a 96 out of 100!
