The tools that my Twisted Tutor, as well as the descriptions she gave me, helped me understand and even like math a little bit more.
We engaged a tutor to help with physics and pre-calculus. In our case it was a matter of helping review material that was being covered very quickly at school. We needed things to be explained more fully and presented in a new way, because sometimes learning styles don’t match the school teacher’s teaching style. The tutor was wonderful at all of this, helping to cover those bits missed during the week and hone in on problem areas we didn’t even know about. Engaging a tutor also helped us see the issues and set up a study schedule for the rest of the week that really worked. My child’s goal was to achieve an A and she did that with much hard work and guidance. Our greatest benefit was seeing her confidence return, along with her independence in the subjects.
Amber taught me so much about myself and showed me my strengths and built my confidence. Amber was a breath of fresh air for many students because she had a unique and effective way of getting students interested in learning. Amber’s encouragement made us all feel and believe that we could do anything we put our minds to. Amber showed so much dedication and respect for all of her students. She went the extra mile to help each of us individually and genuinely cared about our future and wanted each and every one of us to be a success. I thank Amber for helping me discover my path in life and for having such a positive impact on my life and the life of many others I know. No student was ever too much for Amber to handle, in fact she loved the challenge of helping the most difficult students become the best they could be. Amber is a caring, professional, energetic and genuine teacher. Amber is the definition of what an ideal “teacher” and “leader” should be; strong, intelligent, professional, helpful and determined. Thank you Amber for everything you have done for me, I greatly appreciate the role you had in helping me become the person I am today.
I’d like to tell my Twisted Tutor not to change. She was great – thorough, friendly, helpful. I would recommend her to all my friends.
When we approached Tutoring With A Twist, it was to find help for our son who was struggling with both high school Math and English. We had investigated other tutoring agencies but felt they didn’t have the one-on-one more intimate approach that Tutoring With A Twist offers. As a busy, working, blended family, we found that we weren’t always able to dedicate the time to learning with our son and, quite frankly, we were also struggling with the content (it’s been a while since we’ve been in high school and things have certainly changed!). Tutoring With A Twist has been amazing in helping our son achieve his goals and in not only understanding the content, but in being comfortable with learning. Our Twisted Tutor is the perfect match to our son’s personality and learning style… we couldn’t have picked a better tutor to work alongside him! Tutoring With A Twist has definitely helped out our son with understanding his school work and as a side benefit, his confidence in his abilities has greatly improved.
In our first session, it was explained that students could be two grades below or two grades higher in a particular subject area. This gave me such piece of mind because I knew my child was struggling but I didn’t know why. Tutoring…With A Twist gave us the solution – build back my son’s foundation by meeting his where he was at. Then, introduce grade level concepts. Thanks!
We had previously avoided tutoring due to the potential costs, but decided that our 16-year old son needed help with organization, time management and prioritization before it was too late. Leaving it to him or trying to “nag” him into getting his work done wasn’t working for him or for us. We noticed a minivan with the Tutoring With a Twist logo outside the North End Library and decided to give it a go. The owner, Amber Scotchburn, is easy to deal with and the Twisted Tutor has quickly gained our son’s respect (which is not an easy task). Our Tutor is flexible with dates and times when necessary and has helped our son keep up with his schoolwork, and in fact he has also taken on extra classes through Learn at Home. It’s still a work in progress, but a huge improvement. We will be continuing with our Twisted Tutor through the summer to get a head start on next year.
When it was explained that most schools primarily cater to a Read/Write Learner and that my child was a Kinesthetic Learner – I almost started to cry. My son that I was told needed medication and should go in a special class, just needed some tools and strategies to help him better understand how he learned. Tutoring…With A Twist went one step further as they worked with us, as a family, and my son’s school to ensure everybody was meeting his learning needs. His grades and confidence soared and he’s never looked back!
My Twisted Tutor was understanding, supportive, nice and very experienced. She helped me organize ideas, review homework and was flexible in her explanations of all the topics I asked her about.
It is wonderful to be part of Tutoring with a Twist! As a teacher I have the opportunity to work with diverse students at all levels. We tackle academics, as well as life skills, which means we build a meaningful relationship with each individual student. To further develop this relationship, Tutoring with a Twist has each student take an assessment to determine which way s/he learns best. I use a teaching method that suits the learner’s style of learning, this creates a tailored learning experience!
