What makes a great tutor?


Posted 2018-02-05

(Written in October 2008)Having tutored students privately since 1998, when I was a freshman at Harvard University (and full-time since 2002), I have seen many tutors come and go. Some tutors are very good at what they do, others not so good, and sometimes it's hard to tell exactly why this is so.Tutoring is a booming business, and every year more and more families hire private tutors. Tutoring allows naturally skilled teachers to hone their craft without having to earn a teaching certificate (w... Keep Reading

Why do I give all this SAT advice away for free?


Posted 2007-02-02

Lately, a lot of people have been asking me why I chose to start posting my SAT techniques on the web for free. "Aren't you afraid your students won't need you anymore?” they say. Well, no, actually, I'm not! First of all, I post these techniques for the benefit of students who are bright and motivated but perhaps cannot afford to pay for a private tutor. As a product of the public school system myself (kindergarten through senior year of high school), I am proud to know that my advice is ... Keep Reading


The March 10th SAT approaches / McElroy\'s New Tutoring Center


Posted 2007-02-27

So we're less than two weeks away from the March 10th SAT. My tutoring schedule is becoming more and more packed by the minute, so the postings are probably going to slow down for a while. Plus we just leased a new tutoring center, so I have to work on moving us in! I am very excited about the tutoring center--we have a reception/waiting area, as well as a private tutoring room and a small classroom (8 student maximum). This will provide a perfect central location for our tutors to meet with stu... Keep Reading

I think this recent legal decision makes it very clear that this is the case! "http://www.law.com/jsp/article.jsp?id=1182194749475 : http://www.law.com/jsp/article.jsp?id=1182194749475 In fact, I would go so far as to say that in most cases, the MORE guarantees a tutoring company makes, the LESS satisfied you will be with their service. At Mc... Keep Reading

Hello everyone: This is the new McElroy Tutoring job ad for Providence-area tutors. I originally had this posted on Providence Craigslist, but a handful of Craiglist users flagged it down and now Craigslist's automated system won't accept a re-post. What really bugs me though, is that I can't even figure out why this job posting deserved flagging in the first place. I would love to hear from anyone who might know the reason, so I can avoid it in any of my newer postings. I believe in flagging ha... Keep Reading
