Information for Students

1) I recommend getting started 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, we will need at LEAST one month to prepare 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 I do not like to rush through the process.

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

3) Make sure to give me your PSAT scores, previous SAT scores 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. 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 or call me at 412-897-0809.
