Jack was hired to help my son study for his entrance exam into the military. He has an in-depth knowledge of what my son needs to know. His no nonsense and honest approach is much appreciated. Jack never hesitates to go the extra mile, providing my son with the extra tools that will help better prepare him. He even got him a library card! I always get an immediate update regarding that day's sessions, which allows me to stay involved in the process. I would recommend Jack to anyone looking for a great tutor!
Jack helped us come with up nine week plan to get my son ready for the ASVAB. He was honest and direct. He was prompt and he patiently answered my many questions and took the time to try and get to know my son and his goals.

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've taken many exams, and I know the problems with getting ready for a test. The ASVAB test is very important, since it determines which schools and advanced placement you will be eligible for. So, preparation is vital.
I'd like to help you.
