Tutoring Style and/or Experience

I started in the school system, as a volunteer. Slowly, the school started to realize I had a talent for reaching the kids. To me, I was a mom and a grandmother, doing what moms and grandmoms do. Needless to say, over the years, I had learned lots of magic tricks and things that made kids and teens go Wow! I began combining the tricks with techniques I had developed that got the message across to the students. Pretty soon, the school system was handing me classes to teach. But, I wanted to branch off on my own, so I wouldn't be restricted by their methods. I did so, and when I did, all my students' scores started jumping up, quickly! I found lots of new and exciting methods that really worked well. What's funny is they didn't just work with kids, they worked with adults and teens too! Now, I use them with everyone, and all my students excel in leaps and bounds.

Here are just a few comments made by some of my students:

Great Tutor
- Christina Bul. from Winter Haven, FL

Rana has been tutoring my 4th grader and 10th grader for about 2 months. When we first came to her the 10th grader had all F's and the 4th grader was definitely struggling in math and reading. Since working with Rena both kids have shown great academic improvement. The 4th grader is on the honor roll and my 10th grader has all A's and B's except for one class. Hiring Rena to tutor them was one of the best things I have ever done. She is fun and patient and works with our hectic schedule. I wished now that I would have hired her sooner.

GREAT Tutor!
- Darcy Eck. from Auburndale, FL

Rana is an Awesome Math Tutor! She has a unique talent for teaching math and making it really easy to learn. Our daughter is in the 11th grade and she had an F in algebra the first quarter of school. After a few months with Rana as her tutor she had an A. Her math teacher also gave her an Award for most improved. My daughter's teacher was asking her how Rana taught her she was very impressed with how quickly our daughter improved her grade. Last week she got a 88 out of 89 on her math test!

Solid Impact Tutor
- Gerald Bow. from Auburndale, FL

My Tutor is patient but persistent. She seeks to develop a solid understanding of each math element before moving on to the next. She is direct but helpful. She certainly has been helpful to me to grasp concepts that I failed to master while in school........GB
