We decided to use Westside Tutoring (Jack- AKA Professor Z) based on a phenomenal review given by a work colleague's sister. Her son had gone to Jack for tutoring and increased his score considerably. He was ultimately accepted by his number one college choice and they gave me his contact information. I knew that I was going to need to look into tutoring for my daughter Lauren and I wanted something individualized as opposed to a large class setting or internet based service. Lauren is an excellent student and receives great grades. However, she is not very good with timed tests, and would become overly anxious. Moreover, some of her scores were surprisingly lower than anticipated based on her normal schoolwork/grades. I enlisted the help of Professor Z at the end of January 2017. He came to our home, met with us and laid out the plan. We felt very comfortable with the wealth of knowledge he had regarding the various tests (ACT, SAT etc.) as well as the methodology he would utilize to help Lauren learn HOW to take the ACT test, the clues to look for, the ability to pick up speed (a problem for Lauren was taking too much time). From January thru the start of June, Professor Z worked with Lauren 2-3 times weekly. She would further be given timed testing and simulated ACT's. We decided that June would be our final test and worked the timeline to meet this date. I am so impressed with Jack's work, the rigor of study and the care he gave Lauren. She was treated like a family member and he worked around her difficult schedule. Lauren improved her scores in EVERY subject with considerable increases. English and Math increased by 4 points, Science 3 points and Reading by a whopping 10 POINTS!!!! Reading was the area we had the largest concern-based on her low score- it seemed that she could not finish the sections and then didn't overly comprehend what was needed. Jack taught her what was needed for speed, comprehension and how to select the correct answers. Overall composite score increase of 5 points!! I cannot say enough about Professor Z, he is really wonderful and I would highly recommend!!! Elizabeth Aguirre, mom of Lauren Vajentic Avon High School.

Karen was wonderful. She came in near the conclusion of our daughter's senior year. She was struggling in several classes. Karen helped her zero in on the tasks at hand and took the time to guide her one on one with practical and thought-provoking ideas. It worked!

I can say that Gina is best English tutor! She has always encouraged me whenever I made mastakes and explained these very well. So I could have confidence when I use English. Especially, I got help a lot from her when I prepared for the IELTS exam. I could get pretty satisfactory score. Still my English is not the best, but I think it has improved a lot - thanks to her.

About

I have been helping children meet and exceed their goals for 10 years. I began working with children in high school as a camp counselor and an after school program assistant. I volunteered in elementary classrooms during my junior and senior years of high school, before heading to Bowling Green State University to earn my undergraduate degree in Early Childhood Education. I got my first job teaching 4th and 5th grade reading intervention in the Elyria City Schools. During this time I earned my Master's degree in Reading Specialization. Presently, I am in my 3rd year teaching 3rd grade for the Willoughby-Eastlake City Schools. I provide tutoring services and homework help to ensure that your child is performing to the best of their abilities.

I provide expert tutoring for $30 an hour. If you or your son/daughter aren't happy with my first lesson, it will be free of charge. I can offer this guarantee because I am extremely well educated, and I have always had a fantastic rapport with teens and young children. Your children will feel more comfortable, and won't just be learning tricks to get answers correct - they will achieve an understanding of the subject studied. I am a former national merit scholar with a high school GPA of 3.92. I graduated a Phi Beta Kappa from Northwestern University with a 3.96 GPA. I can provide tutoring in all subjects, from young children to the 8th grade. I am also a published writer, and can provide excellent help with college entrance essays. High school subjects I tutor are - English, History, Writing, Math (Calculus excluded), PSAT, and SAT prep. I can come to your home or meet the student at a local library. I am currently located in Solon, and would be happy to work with anyone within a half hour drive of area code 44139.
