FAQ 1. Why should I choose to tutor over practicing at home?

  •  Tutoring will help students understand their mistakes.  Reading through solutions can help students see how to work problems, but the real test to show their mastery is for students to be able to understand what they did wrong and to be able to solve the problem correctly the next time.
  • Students will apply what they’ve learned.  My tutoring students all receive customized practice so that they can make sure that the are able to work the problems independently and correctly after each tutoring session.
  • Students are held accountable.  My Test Prep students always have homework to bring to each session.  In order to maximize our time together, I send students home with practice.  Additionally, all details of all sessions including assignments are recorded for students and parents to see.
  • Tutoring saves time.  Whether it is studying for a test at school, preparing for the SAT or ACT, preparing for the AP Calculus exam, tutoring will save your child time and in many cases… frustration and loss of confidence.

2. What separates my service from others?

  • Background.  I am a teacher first. Good teaching is what makes the difference.  Students can study until they are blue in the face but if they aren’t able to capture the concept and correct their mistakes then they won’t be able to have a different result in the future.  This is a significant source of frustration for many students.
  • Preparation.  Before our sessions I prepare a plan specific for the student I am working with.  After the session I take time to assess what direction we need to move going forward.  Our time is not wasted.
  • Education. I excelled at one of the most rigorous technical schools in the country- Georgia Tech. I know what it takes to not only get in the door but succeed at the highest level of public/private education. My Master’s in Education has helped me cement my ability to communicate my methodology. Most tutors do not have a Master’s degree.
  • Balance.  I’ll connect the material we are working on to current material the student is covering at school.
  • Online Updates. Parents and students can access personalized web portal to get updates on sessions, scores and performance.

3. How can I find out more information? If you have any questions or would like to discuss with me your child’s specific needs, please email me at elizabethncook@gmail.com and I’ll set up a phone consultation.  I am also more than happy to provide more details about my services and/or referrals by request. 4.
