I will give your child two weeks of personal, one-to-one tutoring before you ever need to pay a cent. You will decide if you want to continue, or you can walk away at no cost. This is the cornerstone of my entire tutoring business. Let me explain.
An unusual policy: I only work with three students.
I want to focus on your child. I will uncover his unique learning style. I’ll find the exercises and tools that specifically fit his strengths and weaknesses.
Just an hour or two per week will give your child more confidence and skill. She’ll finish her homework faster. He’ll get higher test scores with less studying.
Imagine a few months from now, when he’s proud of his high GPA. He'll show off his knowledge, and teach you new things about biology. Your car will proudly bear a bumper sticker that says, “My Child is an Honor Student.”
That’s the power of focused, one-to-one tutoring.
I can’t do this if I’m working with a lot of students at once. Especially after a busy day with the Arcadia Unified School District. So I limit myself to three.
It takes a while to find the best students, and I don’t want to take your money if I can’t genuinely help your child. So here’s how I work.
You can call me or fill out the form at the bottom of this page, and we’ll set up our first lesson. We’ll meet once or twice a week for two weeks. I’ll get to know your son or daughter, and you’ll get to know me. We’ll explore the skills he needs to improve, and the ways I can help.
This trial period helps me to know as much about your child’s progress as his or her teacher.
After two weeks, if I feel I can’t genuinely help your child, or if you decide the lessons aren’t working, we’ll go our separate ways. It won’t cost you anything. This is entirely risk-free for you.
On the other hand, if you’re absolutely thrilled with the progress, then you’ll be billed for the first two weeks and we can move forward with additional lessons.
Either you’re going to get a first-class experience that can skyrocket your child’s grades and test scores, or you walk away without paying a cent.
You can call me or fill out the form below, but first I want to ask you a question. When you look at the most successful people in any field, what do you see?
They all had a coach or a mentor. Here are just a few well-known examples:
- Mark Zuckerberg, the founder of Facebook, was mentored by Steve Jobs
- The network anchor Connie Chung served as a mentor for Kyung Yoon of Fox News
- Mother Teresa was guided by Father Michael van der Peet
Who says your child won’t be extraordinarily successful, too? Especially with help from a mentor.
Why does every athlete have a coach? Because nothing is more powerful than another person who demands the best from you. Someone who takes the time to understand your strengths and weaknesses. Someone who focuses like a laser on making them better.
A tutor is the academic version of a coach. When I coach your child, I’ll teach him to study rigorously and to think critically. She’ll be able to get through homework more quickly. Not only will he know the correct answers, he’ll know why the answers are correct.
But there’s another great advantage to working with a coach or a tutor.
The shocking thing that 68% of students do in school
Teachers and school administrators have been wringing their hands over this problem for years:
68% of middle and high school students admit they don’t pay attention in class. They are too busy texting or playing games on their phones.
It’s not your fault. But if you want your child to pass, you need to step in and do something.
In fact, the simple act of doing something will make an immediate impact. Your child will work harder simply because he’ll know you cared enough to invest in him. But that’s just the beginning.
When I tutor your child, she won’t be distracted by her peers. Whether we’re at the library, on campus, or in your kitchen, it will be a quiet, focused environment. Your child will get more personal help in one hour than he or she can typically hope for in 10 weeks of school.
And there’s still one more big advantage that we haven’t talked about.
Improve your child’s grades with the most powerful motivating force in the universe
You’ve heard all about peer pressure. You can probably remember a time you did something for other people, something you would never do for yourself.
This happens all the time. We are social animals, and we will gladly go the extra mile for our family, our team, or our friends. Millions of people have used this fact of human nature to lose weight, quit smoking, master new skills, and improve themselves in countless ways.
This is the secret of accountability. When you have to answer to another person, you are far more likely to reach your goals. But how can you provide accountability in an academic setting?
This is where having a tutor makes the biggest difference. If you want to make this difference in your child’s life, then you need to find the right person for the job.
I’m a science, reading, and writing tutor with a California teaching credential. I’ve worked with hundreds of middle school and high school students, teaching everything from A.P. English to biology to physical science. I’ve even created an entire online biology course.
This should tell you two things: First, I know all about the standards, the curriculum, and the Common Core. I know what your son or daughter is expected to learn in school, and I know what college admissions officers want to see.
Second, I can assess how well your child is meeting these requirements.
Three deserving students in Arcadia are going to get higher grades
With just an hour or two per week, you’ll see improvement in your child’s grades and test scores. But that’s not all. You should also notice change in his or her work habits and self-esteem. Even his attitude will change.
All you have to do is call me to schedule the first lesson, or take thirty seconds to fill out the form below. Don’t wait. I will only pick out three students to work with me.
Remember, I’ve set this limit because I want to give each of my students the best possible help. As soon as I have three, I will take down this web page. If you want to give your child an unfair advantage, something that only three students will have, I urge you to contact me now.
