Hi Jimmy, Thanks so much for your review- it's very much appreciated! :)
In a word, AWESOME! My daughter becomes very introverted when she doesn't understand something in Math, Bertina was so friendly, positive, and innovative in teaching techniques that and was able to connect with my daughter. Bertina brought out a new found confidence in my daughter that no other tutor had before! I strongly recommend Anderson Tutoring!May 18, 2017VerifiedAnderson Tutoring LLC's reply

- What should the customer know about your pricing (e.g., discounts, fees)?I do have a standard pricing system depending on what specifically I'm tutoring. For those that get quotes from me and feel it's a bit on the high side, I am willing to work within a customer's budget. For more information, please don't hesitate to contact me. :)
- What is your typical process for working with a new customer?I like to work out a schedule with a new customer as to how many hours per session, how often we'd meet per week, and where. I give a sheet for the parents to look over and sign which can be done either in person or prior to the first lesson date. I like to develop a good rapport with all my customers and students and let them all know that I'm here to help them in any way I can and as best as I can. We're a team! :) Typically, I offer homework help with students and also have the student practice additional problems likely already in their textbook.
- What education and/or training do you have that relates to your work?I graduated at Northern Illinois University in 2007 with a BA in elementary education with middle school endorsements and a teaching certificate. While in college, I worked for their tutoring program as an SI Leader where I had to attend math classes four days a week and create lesson plans for a session once a week to help students prepare for the next quiz/test. After graduating, I worked for 4.5 years at Westmont High School as a Special Education Teaching Assistant working mainly with students with autism.
