Faith is tutoring my child in 6th grade math. He communication is impeccable and she is prompt and on time. She came in with multiple tools and resources to help aide in the process. She is very personable with my child, always asking her things about her school life in general, not just the subjects they are working on.
Ayushe S. tutored my son Cory for the ACT and for biology, chemistry, and pre-calculus. He suffers from Asperger's Syndrome and has a great deal of trouble with social interaction. We had such trouble finding an appropriate tutor fit with him, but then we thankfully found Ayushe. She was patient, warm, and incredibly kind. Moreover, she was able to completely circumvent the symptoms of his syndrome and truly treat him as a person--this was unique to me, because everyone else just gets hung on on how he is different and often end up treating him very strange as a result. Ayushe did wonders with Cory because she was able to pinpoint and emphasize his learning style, manipulating common subject material into a form that was more digestable to him. He did great on all his tests and assignments for the high school science and math, and even raised his ACT score by 8 points! The best part of the ACT tutoring was that I didn't have to buy anything at all: Ayushe had practice tests, formula sheets, and basically everything Cory could have needed to raise his score. We actually tried All Pencils Down before we met her and he didn't really see much of a change. I think that is because most test prep companies tend to focus on teaching "test-taking strategies" that may or may not work for everyone in the class. Also, Cory has trouble speaking up when he is confused so even a small class of 15 people is too much for him when it comes to raising his hand and speaking up. So, tutoring was definitely the way to go. We tried a few different tutors before we found Ayushe. The other tutors were more like a resource for questions, which was a difficult approach for us since we weren't familiar with the test and didn't know exactly what questions to ask. These tutors were best for people who have test prep books, practice tests, etc., and just need explanations for math or science questions that are confusing to them. Ayushe worked better for us because she provided us with everything Cory needed and actually made a personalized timeline tailored to Cory's weaknesses and strengths on the ACT. So, the $40/hour for ACT tutoring was well worth it in the end--especially after all the dead-ends we met with! All in all, I'm very glad that Ayushe was recommended to us. Even though Cory will be finished with high school soon, I am confident Ayushe will keep up with him and maybe even help him when he gets to college if he decides to go with UAB! I am very happy with everything she has helped Cory with and would definitely recommend her to anyone looking for a tutor!
I rate the tutoring experience with Angi with FIVE STARS and I rate my overall experience with THUMBTACK with a solid F - NO Stars ! THUMBTACK is pretty much of a worthless "organization" and the ONLY positive thing that has come out of it for me has been Angi the tutor. Angi is an excellent teacher who cares about what she is teaching and who she is teaching. I contacted THUMBTACK months ago about finding an attorney, told them the problem with the jerk they recommended, and THUMBTACK completely ignored me. If I had known that my search for a tutor was being handled by THUMBTACK I might have missed working with Angi.
I offer professional help in several areas of math for students of all abilities and ages. The subjects of math that I tutor/teach are Calculus, Precalculus, Trig, Geometry, Algebra, Statistics, Probability and Arithmetic. I thoroughly enjoy teaching math. I still study math and improve my skills and knowledge of math. I have written hundreds of worksheets and lessons for my students. It is important to help students find the holes in their math foundation, as that is usually what is keeping them from moving forward and learning new topics. I have also produced several Youtube videos, and I have created a few games to help with retention.
The website link below is the boutique leadership academy that I developed, licensed, and launched in 2003 through my church. Students cannot graduate without a 3.00 GPA. Hence, 100% of students graduate with 3.00 and higher. One hundred percent of students stay in the field of study that they declared in high school once in college. Over 50% of students graduate high school a year early; 87% receive scholarships to college, and 100% of AA-YP students are in college or have graduated from college. The key to student success in education is a small niched academic and leadership environment. In 1994, I developed, licensed, and launched Born To Succeed Summer Preparatory Lab, which serves students in grades 1-12. This program has been in operation for 20 years. BTS lab utilizes 12 intense sessions during summer to prepare students for their next grade level. High school online classes are available for high credit or noncredit. I am an innovative thinker and educator, and my focus is student achievement, advancement, and personal development. Step Ahead Private Tutoring embraces that same passion. When a student wants to learn and is willing to do his/her part in that process, there is no limit to his/her achievement.
