If you are reading this blog – thank you. If you have looked at my website, you will see that I am an experienced teacher and English tutor.
If you are a parent of a freshman, sophomore, or junior and your teen is struggling in English classes with writing, grammar, note-taking skills, and other skills and grades are slipping, it may be time to get your child tutored. Research has shown that individualized, one-on-one tutoring is one of the most effective ways of increasing student achievement. My approach to tutoring includes:
Planning a program that will address his or her individual needs.
Giving positive reinforcement and encouragement to bring out his or her strengths.
Helping students learn to write and use grammar effectively.
Monitoring their progress and emailing you after each meeting to update you.
Colleges and universities accept students who can write well and use the English language effectively. Your teen’s grades in English are very important and impact their getting into the college of their choice. I am offering a one-time special on tutoring: four sessions for $170 ($42.50 per session). I usually charge $45 per session. For those of you who aren’t in the Boston, Mass. USA area (metrowest), we can connect through Skype. Please email me at Debby@academicsupportlink.com or call me at 617-584-5295 to set up a meeting.
