- What is your typical process for working with a new customer?
For College Admissions Prep, please contact me for detailed information. Kindly note my rate. Serious inquiries only. Standardized Test Process: I like to look through the student's past tests and scores (if they have any) to evaluate strengths and weaknesses and gauge improvement potential. I discuss the major test strategies and make sure the student starts to employ any she's not utilizing already. I assign practice tests for weekly homework and go over the incorrect problems in the following session. I have my students cut out the problems they get wrong and paste them in a spiral notebook so they have a central place to study--my students love this tactic and it helps them get great results.
- What types of customers have you worked with?
Every single type, including those with learning differences, ASD, and IEPs; I tailor their prep to suit their individual needs.
- What advice would you give a customer looking to hire a provider in your area of work?
Experienced tutors know to provide their students with REAL practice tests, and to ensure these are taken TIMED and in ONE SITTING multiple times prior to the real test date. As I say, you cannot run a marathon for the very first time on the day of your marathon! If tutors do not implement these practices, that is a major RED flag. Many students come to me after a lack of progress from working with unqualified tutors. There are tutors who charge less per hour, but this will not save you money if they are not top-quality and must work with the student for a longer period of time.
