About this tutor

We are a tutoring and college coaching company with a highly individualized approach to each student we work with, seeking to help individuals progress joyfully through their educations and reflect in order to find academic pathways that are well-suited to them as unique and uniquely special individuals.

Tutors at ReVision Academics come from diverse academic backgrounds including Harvard University, Texas Tech, and Baylor University, but they all share a passion for writing and for helping students learn and reflect in order to reach their academic goals.

Our core philosophy is this: success is critically important and unique for every individual who seeks it and, therefore, with competent guidance and self-reflection, genuine and long-term success, unique to each and every student, will be achieved.

We enjoy helping students reflect and think critically throughout their academic journeys in order to make their ambitions a reality. We enjoy sharing our love of writing with a wide variety of students. We enjoy challenging the status quo and doing our best to redifine the term "results oriented," seeking results desired by the hearts of individuals, not prescribed by society.

    Jameson was a lifesaver for my family. My 7th grader at the time was at a pivotal point in his math instruction where he not only needed help with the concepts but he also needed to believe that he could do it. It was amazing to see his confidence grow and hone in on skills that we knew he had. My 3rd grader had the same positive experience. She also lacked the confidence and thought of herself as “not good in math.” After just a few sessions I could see the difference. The tutoring offered by Jameson is intentional, challenging and offers all the personal attention it requires. I would highly recommend them to anyone needing tutoring services.

    Our son took algebra earlier than most students, so he needed a little extra help/practice with the concepts. Jameson's style and approach really helped solidify what our son was learning in class. Highly recommend for algebra!

  • Quin Greaves

    Jameson was referred to us by my son's school as a great math tutor. I ended up hiring him for both of my sons. He was a great communicator, always came prepared and it was the first time my sons didn't complain about tutoring. I'd highly recommend him.

FAQs


What is your typical process for working with a new student?

Before matching new students to one of our qualified tutors, we begin by meeting with the student and his/her parent(s) to discuss two things:

1. What are your primary academic goals? (It usually helps if, in the beginning, we can narrow these to two goals; for example, improvement in a school subject, the desired GPA, or a path towards your ideal college. At the same time, we recognize and respect that these goals can often change with time).

2. What do you wish you enjoyed more about school and/or the academic world? (The purpose of this question is to allow us to have a driving force beyond simple numerical goals. We've found that when our students are able to improve the way they approach their educations, things begin to fall into place much more quickly and much more permanently).

From there, the specific process can vary depending on what any given week calls for (e.g. homework not yet understood, upcoming tests, frustration with a particular academic class, confusion about the college admissions process), but the core of the mission we establish early on always remains.


What education and/or training do you have that relates to your work?

Our tutors are either degree candidates or graduates of such institutions as Baylor University, Texas Tech, and Harvard University. They are highly skilled in the practice of academic writing and are knowledgable of the college admissions process. Some even have years of experience working as educators. Whatever your specific goals are, we can match you to a tutor that can help you reflect upon and realize your greatest academic ambitions. 


Do you have a standard pricing system for your lessons? If so, please share the details here.

A few things to note about our pricing policy:

  1. Our current standard rate for each 45-minute academic guidance/tutoring session is between $50 and $60 dollars depending on how many sessions per week you sign up for.
  2. However, as not every potential family/student is in the same financial situation, we do our best to accomodate this. Consequently, the above rate can vary somewhat. Please contact us at the number listed below if you have any questions about our pricing policy

How did you get started teaching?

This tutoring company began as a private practice soley operated by Jameson McGhee, a degree candidate at Harvard University through their faculty of arts and sciences and division of continuing education who began teaching through an internship at a K-12 school for gifted and talented students right out of high school. Since then, Jameson has directly helped dozens of students accross a very wide age range reach their academic and college goals and has also worked as a teaching assistant, substitute teacher, educational copywriter, curriculum and course designer, and lecturer on the subjects of language arts, filmmaking (theory), cinematography (critical anslysis), and journalism. The practice was incorporated as a limited liability company in September of 2021.


What types of students have you worked with?

Thus far, we have worked with students of a wide range of age and ability levels.

We've helped students ranging from 1st graders to post college-aged learners (and everything in-between), although since we've steadily shifted in the direction of guiding students with analytical and critical essay writing, we're currently focusing on helping students in grades six through twelve, students in college, and students in their post-college-aged years.

Additionally, we've tutored various forms of essay writing (persuasive, creative, expository) in disciplines including literature, biology, and history. In exceptional cases, we also tutor other subjects. If you have any questions about the different tutoring services we can offer, please contact the number listed below.

Describe a recent event you are fond of.

In a recent session I conducted personally, a long-time student of mine (now a junior in high school) told me that he wanted to go to an Ivy League university (something I've heard a lot over the years). He's a brilliant student with a wonderful and unusuaully creative mind and he has ambitions to work in the medical field. Also, any of the Ivy League schools would be very lucky to have him. I asked him why he wanted to attend an Ivy League school, though. His answer was something to the effect of "I want to set myself up well for medical school applications." I nodded and asked him, "suppose none of the Ivy League schools could, given your specific learning style, give you an enjoyable and effective preparative education for medical school. Would you still want to go to an Ivy Leage school?" He replied "I guess I wouldn't." I said, "It's quite possible that one or more of the Ivy League universities would be a great fit for you, your learning style, and your ambitions and would set you up very well for a happy life in which you are a force of good in the world. But it sounds like you may not know yet whether the Ivy League is the right target to aim at. There are plenty of good and plenty of bad reasons for wanting to go to a specific type of university. Someone who says 'I want to go to Princeton because, well, you know it's Princeton' is likely only interested in the school for its prestige (prestige being a made-up construct derived from a French word that means "deceit" ), which, by itself, is a bad reason to set ones sights on a specific school. Now, someone else who tells me 'I want to go to Princeton because they have a really interesting and strong molecular biology degree program that is better suited to my ambitions in the field of medicine than any other degree program I've researched over the last several months' clearly has a very good reason for wanting to attend this university. Regarding the first student, I would encourage them to look into degree programs not only at Princeton, but at a very wide range of schools accross the world. To the second student, I would say 'I applaud and admire the research you've done into this important decision and I will do everything in my power to help set you up for success throughout your application process to Princeton.'"  After giving him extensive advice on researching college degree programs, I encouraged my student to do some research before our next session and report back to me. This student may end up at an Ivy League school (he's certainly smart, talented, and passionate enough), but my sacred responsibility is to make sure that this is only the case if an Ivy League school is, in fact, the best fit for him as a unique and uniquely special individual.


What advice would you give a student looking to hire a teacher in your area of expertise?

Find a tutor and/or tutoring company that has a philosophy that rings true to you. Try a single session and make sure that the tutor you will be working with can have a good rapport with you, can make you feel valued as a unique individual, and can help you through even the toughest of academic questions you might pose to them over the years. There are a lot of options out there to choose from. Don't settle for one that does not feel like a good fit for you.


What questions should students think through before talking to teachers about their needs?

I'd advise thinking through these three questions:

1. What do I want to have accomplished by the third session (or the third week of school)? (This will give you an idea of your immediate goals).

2. What do you want to have accomplished by the end of next school year? (This will clarify your semi-long term goals).

3. How can your teacher best work with you in order to meet these goals?

Remember always that you are an individual. You are not a demographic, you are not a set of statistics. Teachers need to always do their best to work with students as individual cases, rather than generalizing an individual or a classroom.
