    Sue Rhodehouse is an excellent tutor! She has vast experience both in teaching high school English at all levels, and as a newspaper journalist. I worked for her as a reader for essays and exams. She gives thoughtful, creative assignments which are challenging and fair to her students. She has also tutored many high school students one on one. I think any student's high school experience would be greatly enhanced by the competent support provided by Sue's Tutoring!

      Dave helped supplement my calculus 3 course and he is very knowledgeable in this advanced subject. I have had four tutoring sessions with him so far and will continue to have them with him till the end of the semester. What went well is that he is very clear in his descriptions of the subject matter that we are describing, and as we go over examples he clearly sees mistakes that I make.

      About

      I am an experienced collegiate tutor who wants to help students read and write with more confidence and academic accuracy. I do not write essays for people, I give them the tools to create better essays for themselves. My greatest joy is to see students enjoy and improve in a school subject they struggled with before their tutoring sessions. I have a Bachelor's Degree in English and I love passing on the knowledge of how to communicate on paper. My goal is to help students read and write as my full-time career.

      I offer private tutoring in a variety of subjects: English (reading, writing, grammar, and phonics), SAT and ACT prep, and German. I am credentialed in both English and German. Although I was raised in the US, my mother is a native German, and my family speaks German at home. Therefore, I have been fluent in German my whole life. I also love knitting and have sold many of my items. If you are interested in learning a new and very satisfying hobby, I can teach you! I enjoy working with students of all ages, from elementary school to college and beyond.

      About

      Listed below are distinctions of the Club Z! Program, which offer insight as to how we are different from the competition and able to customize service to the student as a whole. 1. TUTORING IS IN YOUR HOME! a. Parents avoid the hassle of traveling to the tutoring site. b. Students receive one-on-one attention without the distractions of a group/classroom setting. (Great if the parent says the child is highly distractible or has ADD/ADHD) c. Parents have an opportunity to meet with the tutor after every session to discuss areas of improvement as well as areas in need of remediation. d. Parents are REQUIRED to be at home during each session, therefore parents have a chance to eavesdrop on the tutoring and learn how to reinforce the skills in the time between tutoring sessions. 2. SAME TUTOR, EVERY TIME The same tutor will teach the student every time, so the rapport that develops between a student and a teacher is never disrupted. A tutor will be a more effective teacher upon understanding the personality, interests, and learning style of the student. When the student is seen as a whole, both learning and self- esteem flourish. 3. TUTOR PLAYS THE ROLE OF A COACH Bringing in a neutral, encouraging third party can often restart a fresh flow of learning. It is analogous to a child resisting his father’s advice on how to swing a baseball bat, but then eagerly following orders when the same advice comes from the baseball team’s coach. Often times, the tutor will become like a coach, mentor, roll-model, naturally enhancing the student’s self-esteem and confidence. Their tutor is seen as an ‘expert’ - their personal academic coach; someone whom they might wish to emulate. 4. EMPHASIS ON STUDY SKILLS Club Z! tutors emphasize the importance of effective study skills as part of any tutoring program. Organization, time management, reading comprehension and note-taking strategies are addressed to lay the foundation for success in all academic areas. 5. PARENTS ARE IN CONTROL Parents control: a. the tutor that is requested – male or female b. the number of tutoring sessions per week c. the days and times of the sessions d. being kept informed of the student’s progress, after each session. 6. SCHOOL-BASED CURRICULUM Rather than introduce an entirely new curriculum to an already overwhelmed, struggling student, Club Z! tutors in the classroom curriculum – utilizing classroom texts, assignments, and materials as the focus of each session. Supplementary material may be provided when necessary and/or requested. 7. FAST RESULTS! Because Club Z! tutors within the existing school curriculum, results are immediate. Tutors and students work together to tackle classroom assignments, upcoming school projects, and prepping for tests. Within only a couple of weeks, teachers, parents, and students alike will notice improvement – often, significant growth!

      Q & A

      Answers to commonly asked questions from the experts on Thumbtack.

      How do you study for the SAT?

      Your SAT prep strategy can mean the difference between a great score and a mediocre score, as well as the difference between being accepted to or rejected by your school of choice. The Scholastic Assessment Test (SAT) is a college entrance exam that measures a student’s knowledge and understanding of what they have learned up to this point in school and what they need to succeed in college. In addition to arming students with the knowledge they need to excel in the math, reading and writing components of the test, SAT prep can help improve scores by teaching students crucial strategies for taking the test itself. Professional SAT prep tutors can work with students one-on-one or in group sessions. Typically, tutors recommend that students who are comfortable and caught up with their regular schooling begin SAT prep at least three months before the test. If you’re targeting an elite school, six months before the test is a good time to begin. Students who are behind in school are advised to start early to ensure they’re caught up and feeling confident in all the relevant subjects. Suggestions for long-term SAT prep include taking challenging high school courses, completing all homework assignments, preparing for class tests and quizzes, and participating in class by asking and answering questions. There are free SAT prep training tools online; for those who’d like a one-on-one tutor to take them to the next level, the national average rate is $70 per hour.

      When should you start preparing for the SAT?

      It’s never too early to start preparing for college entrance exams, but professional tutors recommend a baseline of at least three months before the test. The Scholastic Assessment Test (SAT) is the gold standard for college admissions, and SAT prep is important for doing well. Your child’s SAT scores will have a major effect on which colleges send acceptance letters. Professional tutors can work with your kids to coach them on how to take the SAT, as well as studying the actual academic content. Doing well on the SAT is as much about knowing the right test-taking strategies as about having a firm grasp of the subject matter.

      To understand your student’s readiness for the SAT, they can take the pre-SAT (PSAT) starting in their sophomore year. SAT prep can be structured around the student’s PSAT scores, so tutors can address any challenges and weak subject areas. If your child has their sights set on an Ivy League or elite school, SAT prep with a tutor or study program should start at least six months before the test. Vocabulary is a key element of the student’s SAT preparation and success. The national average rate for SAT prep tutoring is $70 per hour.

      What is in the SAT test?

      As your child is preparing for the SAT, it’s helpful to know the specifics of the test. The Scholastic Assessment Test (SAT) is made up of three main categories and one optional essay. Students have a total of three hours to take the test, with an additional 50 minutes for the optional essay. In total, there are 154 questions. During SAT prep, it’s helpful to take timed practice exams to understand how you’ll do during the actual test. Here is a brief overview of each of the four categories:

      • Reading: 65 minutes with 52 questions. The Reading test measures command of evidence, words in context, analysis in history and social studies, and analysis in science.
      • Writing and Language: 35 minutes with 44 questions. The Writing and Language test covers the same topics as Reading, as well as expression of ideas and standard English conventions.
      • Math: 80 minutes with 58 questions. The Math test looks at the student’s understanding of algebra, problem-solving and data analysis, and advanced math in the context of fluency, conceptual understanding, and applications.
      • Essay (optional): 50 minutes with 1 essay. The essay will demonstrate the student’s competency with writing, analysis and reading.
