About Tony

I home-schooled my legally blind son from the sixth grade until he graduated and passed his GED, He scored in the top seventy-five percentile, or higher in all categories, except Math skill which he scored in the fifty-eighth percentile. Whether it was an adult or a child that I have tutored in the past, I have always searched out their special interests, such as sports, animals, in the case of my son, or other things and incorporated them into my lesson plans. I use mnemonic devices, such as FANBOYS, for the joining of independent clauses with conjunctions. For, and, nor, but, or, yet, and so. I also use repetition to help the student to remember certain items for tests. In one instance at Virginia Western Community College, one of our history professors had in his syllabus a test with thirty events that had to be placed in order. I took the thirty, which started with the walls of Jericho and ended with Columbus, and used one word, like wall and Columbus, by the time the test arrived, I only had to call out the number and my son knew which event was the answer. We both scored perfect on the test. The next semester I told the professor what I had done and the next higher course had another thirty question events test, he suggested to his weaker students that they should seek my help. Again, my son and I scored a perfect score and twelve others in our class, that studied with us, received a eighty-five or better on the test.
