Thank you for choosing me to be your child’s tutor. I strive to be the best tutor I can be and welcome your input and insights. This process takes time, even when the student is really trying. “Trying” means: listening and taking notes in class, attempting homework, and actively participating in our sessions. Please know that I am rooting for your child’s success! Please see the lists below of expectations and tutoring information. Session Info: • Sessions are 1 hour minimum. Longer sessions can be accommodated at the request of the parents. • 24 hour cancellation policy (see below) • Parents are encouraged to stay the first 1 – 2 times. After that, I prefer that it is just the student and I. In my experience, students are more relaxed, focused and perform better when parents are not around. I always communicate with the parents at the end of each session. • Student participation in sessions to include problem solving, asking and answering... read more

Are you a new student to WYZAnt? I am sure you may have a lot of questions, as well as some hesitations. The most common question I receive when working with new students is how does this program work. Some tutors may have different policies and procedures, but here is a brief overview of how I work with my students.   First, I will answer any and all of your questions as quickly as possible via email. Once payment information has been entered we can exchange phone numbers and speak over the phone in greater detail about your concerns and expectations for tutoring. Next, we can set-up our first tutoring session at a public library or coffee shop. Public locations are a great neutral meeting spot. Also, if you choose to meet at a library these locations are generally quiet and offer a wealth of resources to assist with student learning. I normally travel within 15 miles of Amelia, OH but there are times where I will make exceptions to meet at a location closer to your home... read more

I have noticed a lot of problems in the Answers list that seem not to be submitted by students.  It's apparent because the problems are too general, or not worded like a student issue.     I feel that I'm wasting my time answering questions that no one is interested in on a practical basis for his/her classes, and that my time is not well spent answering questions when no one will read the solutions.   I think Wyzant should require students to specify the school and the class that they are taking, or at least submit a learning plan if they are in a self-study program, in order to submit questions on "Answers".  This would go a long way toward eliminating extraneous questions.   I am going to stop answering questions that I think are not submitted by real students.
