Every week Bob asks what topics my son is working on in school and brings corresponding practice problems for my son to work on with Bob. The extra practice has been very helpful for my son. Bob also has a lot of experience teaching math and is able to give advice on how to approach each type of math problem. Having a plan of attack for math problems has also improved my son's confidence and interest in math.
She was encouraging yet rigorous, and extremely patient. While she was very knowledgeable about how to write for a state test, I could also tell that she was equally familiar and comfortable with teaching how to write book reports, essays, term papers, etc. Definitely a tutor to keep as my daughter gets older! As far as interactions, she arrived early, communicated clearly, and engaged my daughter immediately.
Great first experience. Carol is very patient, has a great approach and is encouraging. It was my first time with a tutor for my 8 year old child. My son was very receptive. He liked the experience. Carol is very patient and demonstrates a great deal of experience with elementary education. In particular, she helped my 8 year old get up to speed in his comprehension and ready for fourth grade. With Carol, he is on the right track!
