WOW!!! What a great experience my son had with Ms. Jill during their first meeting. Ms. Jill is a warm, friendly woman who displays a sincere interest in her students. She entered our home, greeted my son and his siblings, and was interested in what he was trying to communicate to her.
I shared my concerns with his reading and she was very receptive to the information. After the session, she was very positive regarding his engagement, enthusiasm for learning, and his eagerness to read new books. Ms. Jill and I spoke after the session and she felt she had a good gauge as to his reading skills sets and the direction to try to move forward in. She was very prepared with future dates for tutoring and those were scheduled.
After the session, my son shared "I liked Ms. Jill and she will help me read so much better!" Very happy to have found Ms. Jill.
My son is enjoying his time with Ms. Jill. He is eager for her to come and feels good about his reading after she leaves. Great session and he was so very excited about the train books she brought with her.
My 2nd grade daughter struggles with reading and Jill has made great progress with her. My daughter looks forward to her tutoring time. My daughter’s teachers have noticed sufficient improvement. Jill makes sure to change up activities to keep her engaged during the whole hour. Jill is very reliable and is very patient.
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.
