In all my years of working with students, I have found that the most effective tutoring occurs through a strong relationship between the educator and the student. For classroom-based tutoring, this relationship can be most easily and effectively obtained with one’s peers. Slightly older students can act as mentors and role models for younger students who are going through what they went through just a year or two ago. These students are most up-to-date on the curriculum, the teachers, and the pressures of today’s classroom.
Now, not any old peer tutor is going to help your child. At Prep U, we only use tutors who have spent at least 10 hours working with me, so I know them and I know their strengths and weaknesses. I only hire tutors who have the knowledge, responsibility and personality to make a great tutor. It is easy to know the material; however, it is a challenge to have the ability to deliver the content in a fun and understandable style that will stick with a student on test day.
We are currently offering peer tutoring for Algebra, Geometry, Calculus, Chemistry, Physics, Biology, U.S. History, European History, World History, Spanish, French, and Hebrew.
I am excited to offer this opportunity to my clients, so please feel free to contact me with questions or to make an appointment.
