I have had the best time learning how to sing with Susan! She is so patient and kind, and has such a great way of helping me actually visualize how I can make corrections in my singing. It has been such a pleasure and is a real highlight of my week. And--bonus--I have really progressed!

Randy did an excellent job. Very patient and knowledgeable regarding the subject matter.

Randy is a great singing tutor. He’s patient, flexible and encouraging. My son is a little reserved boy and not comfortable at expressing his feelings, and Randy helped him reading through every phrases before the singing. That was very helpful. Thank you Randy!
Amy E.
Very knowledgeable and patient. Broke down challenging concepts and problems in very understandable terms. Saved me hours a week of having to read my child’s textbook and watch YouTube to teach my child what he wasn’t understanding from his middle school teacher.

Though I teach for a living while completing my degree, I'm also a writer. Research and analytical writing appeal to me especially, not to mention fiction.

About Simeon

The most important attributes of any teacher are empathy and patience. I currently attend Harvard University and work as a professional writer and tutor. I've lived all over the United States, although I grew up in Scotland of all places. My scores on the SAT and ACT were perfect (1600 and 36 re

Words cannot express how awesome Simeon is....but here is an attempt. As parents, my wife and I cannot say enough great things about Simeon. Our child was preparing for his second attempt at the SAT's. Our child has a 4.0 GPA but did not do as well as he would have liked on the SAT's his first time. Our son was hesitant at first to work with a tutor since he thought he could prepare on his own and improve his score but as parents, we decided he needed outside help. That's when we found Simeon. Our son not only increased his SAT scores by almost 100 points in a very short window, but he extremely enjoyed his time with Simeon. Now that he and Simeon no longer meet on a weekly basis our son misses his time with Simeon. Simeon is extremely intelligent and has a way of explaining the concepts in a manner that anyone can understand. Simeon truly cares about the students he works with. We have another child entering high school next year and you better believe if he needs any tutoring Simeon will be getting a call.

Very intellectual and patient ... Cares and wanted to help .

Simeon has been an absolutely invaluable resource for my SAT prep. His encouragement is appropriately supplemented by challenging material and (appropriately) challenging expectations. He manages to make studying for the SAT fun rather than a laborious task and I could not recommend him more.

"My introverted 8 year old found a small group that she could flourish with under Lisa's tutelage. Lisa introduced topics that kept the kids engaged and excited, and my daughter's writing continued long after the class was over. She was so excited about what she had written, she even shared some of her writing from this class with her regular school class! Lisa presents the material in a level appropriate and fun way, encouraging the students to create without fear of mistake, and with gentle guidance to the correct style or form."

"When it came time to apply to graduate school, I wanted to express every ounce of appreciation for public health – except I struggled with transferring much of that admiration into writing. I could easily call up experiences and memories during conversation, but to fashion them into a fluid essay remained a tall task. This is where Nick really shined. We spent hours talking through these experiences with a focus on harnessing their emotional footprint. It took some open-mindedness, plus the will to resist the inertial tug of old habits, but with Nick’s help I was able to write from a place of passion for the first time in my life."

"When I first started writing my screenplay for a short story I'm directing and producing, I had a limited time to write, direct, edit and submit to a "once a year" film festival in Orlando Florida. I ran into a bunch of obstacles, from using the correct grammar, to punctuation's, spelling and inconsistencies in the story line. She was very clear and concise when she spoke. I don't know what she did but her method of teaching allowed me to relax and open my mind, and allowed me to absorb and remember every single writing technique she's given me. I am proud to say that my short film was finished in time to enter the festival. Thanks to Jonita it is now 3 months later and I have finished my fourth short screenplay, now starting my fifth. She is just amazing, I'm so happy I found her to work with me."
