This instructor is a Science, Technology, and International Affairs major with a focus in Computer Science at Georgetown University. He has been tutoring for three years, with the goal of instilling in others the same curiosity and passion for learning that has served him so well. His philosophy is to teach underlying concepts, rather than focus on memorization. His peers describe how he “is able to connect really well, is a great listener, and is always looking to explain how to think about a problem in a novel way.” This tutor has a Facilitator Teaching Style (i.e. emphasizes the personal nature of teacher student interactions; guides students by asking questions, exploring options, suggesting alternatives, and encouraging them to develop criteria to make informed choices; overall goal is to develop in students the capacity for independent action and responsibility). One student wrote, he is “the best kind of tutor” because “he provides tips on mentally approaching a problem” and knows when to “back off and let the student try.” Another student wrote, “I really liked my class and I learned a lot despite the short amount of time I had. Jorge was very patient and encouraging. When I had questions during the presentation, he would stop to answer and explain the parts where I was confused. I think he is a great instructor overall and I’m happy I got to learn so much.”

FAQs

What kind of training do your instructors have?
All WorldWise tutors are enrolled in or have completed college. Many also have Masters and PhDs. They all have years of experience teaching students of the ages and in the subjects, they specialize in. WorldWise tutors have also been taught the methodologies of Founder and CEO, Lindsey Wander. Before choosing a tutor, you will be provided with their bios detailing their education, experience, and training.

What age groups do you work with?
WorldWise Tutoring works with students of all ages and abilities. We have had students from ages 2 to 50.

What kind of improvement have you seen in past clients?
Just as each child is unique, so are their experiences. We have had students improve their reading scores by 50-75 percentile after just one session. We have also had some students who require the re-teaching of executive functioning skills every few weeks. Whatever the case, we do see the most improvement in students who also complete the personalized independent work we provide as an extension to the tutoring lesson.

Do you have experience working with different learning styles?
WorldWise Tutoring works with students of all abilities. Our instructors have experience helping students with various Learning Difficulties, including ADD/ADHD, Dyslexia, Dyscalculia, Dysgraphia, Executive Functioning, Visual Processing, Auditory Processing, and Autism. We also have experience helping students with anxiety and depression. Some of our instructors are trained in Special Education.

Are your instructor’s backgrounds checked?
Yes! WorldWise Tutoring’s instructors are all background checked by Accutrak, the company used by many schools for their staff.

What is your availability?
WorldWise Tutoring instructors meet at days and times convenient for the student. This will all be arranged at the initial consultation and can be adjusted as needed.

What are your prices?
WorldWise Tutoring’s prices depend on the grade level of the student and whether the sessions are 1-on-1 or small groups. Small groups of younger children are the least expensive per child. For instance, a group of seven Pre-K students costs $12/hr/student. On the other hand, 1-on-1 with older students is more expensive. For example, a private session with a college student can cost up to $110/hr. The specific price for your request will be provided during the initial consultation. 

Reviews

When I was away on working trips, she revised her schedule to arrange for Skype sessions that were highly effective.

Dan Dolney

One comes away from each lesson with a definite awareness that progress has been made, resulting in bolstered self-confidence. . . . Worthy of special note is the method of online curriculum, which is remarkably effective because it provides the student with an email detailing the lesson plan ahead of time. This is ideal when so much is covered in a short space of time.

Ivan Diachenko

Our sessions were interesting and informative and I always looked forward for new ones.

Alex Budiakov

Although I only met with her twice a week, she was always open to corresponding outside my scheduled tutorial sessions via e-mail or Skype if I had particular difficulty with any in-class or homework problems and she would never hesitate to pull additional information or examples outside of my textbook to help ensure that I would grasp the material.

Cameron Pettigrew
