What can a parent do?
your child up for academic success. A parent is the child's strongest
advocate. I encourage all of my studentís parents to take an active
role in the educational and tutoring process. Parents are welcome to
sit in on all tutoring sessions. I encourage both parents and students
to develop strong advocacy skills when it comes to their education.
A little time, planning and money spent now is a lot of time, money and
stress saved later. GreatTutoring delivers educational skills that last
Are there any long-term commitment requirements?
No. Although we do require our clients to sign a form
acknowledging our policies, there is no long-term commitment required.
I do encourage clients to contract my services for at least a one-month
period to ensure my availability and consistency. I tend to book up
very quickly, especially around exam times. Many of my clients have
been with me for several months or even years and have signed professional
service agreements with me on a quarterly basis.
What makes GreatTutoring unique?
As the name implies, I take great
care in delivering the very best tutoring services. I recognize that a
strong rapport and good chemistry between tutor and student is
essential to the effectiveness of one-on-one tutoring. I am highly
motivated, personable, well-rounded and skilled to create an
environment which encourages students to achieve academic success. I
strive to excite my students about the learning process; instilling in
them a sense of confidence, which in turn makes them much more
productive in the classroom.
What is the difference between your tutoring services and traditional
There are a few important differences. First, all my programs are
designed solely for one-on-one instruction, as opposed to traditional
learning centers which are comprised of group lessons. Next, I follow
the student's curriculum from school. l work with current classroom
assignments and prepare for upcoming tests, therefore what they learn
during each session will be directly applied to their class work. I
also augment the students learning to go beyond the traditional school
curriculum and include a much more comprehensive foundation. Further
and most importantly, traditional learning centers do not use the same
instructor session to session. Clearly a child can not develop a strong
rapport with an instructor, if that instructor is being switched from
session to session. The instructor in the group session would have to
become newly familiarized with each new student every session. I
maintain an on-going relationship with many of my students that can
last for months or years.
