Information for Students

1) Please contact me at LEAST two months before the test/date you are planning to take so that you get good value and truly benefit from the tutoring sessions.  If you're looking for private tutoring in one subject area, please contact me at LEAST one month before the test date. The reason I suggest that students contact me well in advance is because tutoring sessions take place once a week and the 8 session minimum needs to be fulfilled (4 session minimum for one subject area). An 8 session minimum is what I have found best for students to make solid improvements. I do not like to cram more than one session in a week (unless it is a makeup) because I feel that students will not improve by cramming in sessions this way. I assign homework after every session and I expect that it is 100% complete before the next session. I like to allow ample time (especially during the school year) for students to get their homework done between sessions.

2) I do not travel to students' homes. We will meet at a public location that is convenient for everyone.

3) Make sure to bring your PSAT scores, previous SAT or ACT scores and results or any diagnostics you have taken to the first session. This will help me understand your strengths and weaknesses and we will go from there.

4) Make sure you are rested enough and awake for each session. You need to be fully awake and alert during the sessions so that you can benefit from them. If you are unable to keep up with the homework I assign at the sessions and/or are having trouble staying alert, I would be happy to talk with you and/or your parents/caretakers about how things can change so that you can feel less stressed and overwhelmed and more alert in general.

5) I have a one page contract that everyone signs (the student, parents/guardians and me, the tutor) before we begin so that everyone's expectations around the tutoring process are clear. Throughout the process, you can email me or call me anytime with questions or thoughts that you have.

If you have any other questions, please feel free to email me at asoitutoring@gmail.com.
