Introduction: As you can see above, we have earned the TOP PRO awards for the last 5 years running in DFW! Some of the reasons for those accolades include our first meeting between the parent, student and me to review test science and strategy, better study habits, sleeping and eating habits while answering all questions and reviewing the reasons for taking the test. For older students, we do the same meeting without the parent. Our tutors are really educational coaches in that they guide the student to the answer instead of giving it to them, so that they learn in a deeper way and remember. Tests are about strategy and knowledge, and learning is about understanding the knowledge. We push students to do better than they expect because that builds confidence! For students, we will write a letter of recommendation when requested, and for others we will do career counseling through internships and employment. In short, the tutoring may finish, but we are available for the rest of their lives! We really enjoy that we can open the possibilities of each student through better learning techniques. What could be better than seeing the reward on the faces of our students when they succeed!

FAQs

  • What should the customer know about your pricing (e.g., discounts, fees)?

    We charge $45/hr. for one student and $40/hr. for each student if there are multiple students in the same session with a maximum of 4. There may be further discounts for students from the same immediate family who are in the same session.

  • What is your typical process for working with a new customer?

    We meet with the student and a parent to go over study, eating, sleeping, test taking habits, and scheduling. Once we agree on a time, the student owns it unless we both agree to change it. This elevates constant schedule changes. Yet, we are also able to accommodate continual schedule changes due to school work, medical issues, etc.

  • What education and/or training do you have that relates to your work?

    Life is a learning experience and we are always on the look out for new ways to explain subjects to our students. Why? Because the subject matter becomes far more interesting if it can be related to real life examples! For example, wouldn't it be helpful in later life if the student learned how to measure square footage and used that knowledge when buying their new home?
