Why choose us? Because we teach students holistically. What does this mean? Your child is a student, but they are also a person full of possibility and talent who needs to be treated as such. When we tutor your child, we get to know them as a person and connect with them. Every student is fascinating to us. We also care—a lot—and we're not saying other tutors don’t, but at most major tutoring organizations, parents choose an organization and are subsequently assigned a tutor whose job is almost always NOT a full-time tutor. Their ability to survive does not depend on tutoring, so there is less of an urgency to deliver the best quality, which includes making tutoring fun! When teachers teach well, students enjoy it. If your student is not enjoying the help they are getting, there's something wrong! Another reason to choose me is that we create a plan for every tutoring session and then tailor that plan to your child. That means, throughout a day, we might be highly energetic with one student who simply adores school and cannot wait for us to push him or her harder, patient and gentle with another student who has just started tutoring because of a poor grades or a disappointing test score (the worst, but also the most room for progress in lower than hoped for test scores), and we might finish up with a star basketball player who will be able to choose any school in the country he wants to go to, which means that we have to figure out how to motivate him using other techniques. We love a “challenge,” because to me there are no “challenging kids.” Everyone’s different! And thank goodness or all the great universities would be made up of some pretty homogeneous people.
I welcome the opportunity to provide you with the service and the results that you deserve.
