As a credentialed multiple subjects and English/Humanities teacher for 32 years, I understand pre-teens and teenagers and I know how to help and motivate them. I strive to individualize and customize my services to meet the unique needs of each of my clients and to empower them to achieve their ambitions. I have been advising and tutoring clients for four years in reading, writing, SAT preparation, college essay writing and college applications through my business www.wiseambitions.com.
Connecting with students when they are motivated and hopeful, helping them make their goals a reality, supporting them and their parents through what can be a challenging experience.
I really loved working with Ms. Rader. Not only was she extremely nice, she let me work at my own pace. I was able to learn a lot through her sessions and utilized what I learned to successfully raise my SAT score. To those on the fence about choosing Ms. Rader I can tell you from experience that she’s very communicative, flexible, and can work well with anyone from any background. From my overall experience with working with Ms. Rader she’s definitely worth it and I’m grateful to her for the time and effort she put into tutor me, and I know she’ll do the same for you.
I meet with the student and parents to learn how I can best meet their needs. At the first tutoring session, we review their school grades and test scores, and I recommend the content and schedule for our sessions. I teach content, help build confidence and explain test-taking strategies.
I have been an elementary and middle school teacher for over 30 years and an independent college consultant for 5 years. I have a Multiple Subjects Credential, a Single Subject English Credential, a BA degree in Psychology and an Independent Educational Consultant Certificate.
I charge $70 to $80 an hour for tutoring and usually recommend at least one, 2-hour session each week.
