Dear Parent, 

Miss Leah has begun to form the 2015-2016 schedule.  She is also available to open an Elite class (scroll down for more information on the Elite Class) this Fall/Winter.  This class is for the more serious-minded student. It holds a MAXIMUM OF ONLY SIX SEATS and therefore boasts an intimate setting allowing for much more personal attention given to your child’s specific needs.  As such, the content and the tuition base are different from those of a private school. 

Classes are 1.75 hours* in length (no break) and are held Sunday afternoons at the Chapel Hill Public Library or in the home of the host/hostess during the week.

If you would more information, please send an email to inform me of your needs:

  • subjects in which your child needs the most work, including ACT, SAT, EOG, specific subjects, homework help, etc.
  • you/your child’s schedule availability, including days and times
  • your location (be specific, especially if you want a weekday class)
  • your child’s current school and average grade
  • whether you prefer an intimate “Elite” Class or individual tutoring

If you are already in the process and simply need the proper registration forms, I shall send them out to you at once.

So that I may best serve you, please include as soon as possible.  My schedule is often in flux, but does fill up rather quickly.

Instructor’s Background

Miss Leah was trained and certified by the Princeton Review of Long Island, New York in 1997 and has since obtained Master Teacher/Tutor status.
She worked in New York with the Princeton Review until 2003, when she relocated to FL and taught for Judi Robinowitz: Score At The Top in Boca Raton.  Ms. Robinowitz, a writer for The College Board’s Official Manual before the opening of her schools, offered Miss Leah a Directorship.  Miss Leah taught classes, tutored individual students, and trained other teachers in both SAT and ACT Prep classes.  Today, Miss Leah sees private students in Chapel Hill, Carrboro, Durham, Apex, Cary, and Pittsboro, NC, and teaches SAT Prep classes in a private school in Chapel Hill.

An Experienced Tutor

Miss Leah has 15 years experience tutoring all subjects and question types that make up Standardized Tests such as the EOG, SSAT, PSAT, SAT, ACT, FCAT, and GRE.  Her students invariably rate Miss Leah “well above average” in knowledge, delivery, and approachability, as well as caring, dedication, and congeniality.  With 18 years prior experience as a Holistic Psychotherapist, Miss Leah understands that students have a myriad of emotions, especially with regard to test-taking, school work, and extra-curricula course work.  She is considered to be both fair-minded and trustworthy.

Sage Tutelage’s NEW ELITE Class

The ELITE CLASS is Miss Leah’s unique concept!  Since there are only 4, 5, or 6 seats available, each class member receives some individual attention.  These classes are becoming very popular not only because of the student-to-teacher ratio but also because of the pricing Sage Tutelage offers.  If you were to take a class such as this from a large test prep company, you would spend thousands of dollars.  Sage Tutelage offers the same top quality of those companies for a fraction of the cost.   APPLICATION MAY BE NECESSARY TO REGISTER FOR THIS CLASS. 

A Typical SAT Class 

The SAT class will benefit ANY teenager preparing to take the SAT.  Topics include the Structure and Scoring of the SATPacing, Goal SettingReading Strategies, Vocabulary Building; Essay Construction, Grammar Review, Error Identification, Sentence Structure and Improvement; and Math Question Techniques.
Techniques specific to the various question types, including actual Critical ReadingWriting, and Math questions will as be practiced and explained.  Students’ specific questions will be addressed.

New classes are continually being offered.

Test Score Improvement

Test score improvement occurs when the student attends and participates in class, does all assignments as explained, and asks appropriate questions.  Typically, students scoring within the 480 – 590 range (per subject) will see the greatest score increase provided they attend all classes and do all assignments as instructed.  Students in the 600 – 720 range also see improvement and experience more confidence and ease in test taking.  Those students who are now scoring above 720 or below 480 can benefit, but are best served with one-on-one lessons.  The average student will see an increase of 120 points overall on test scores.  I have assisted students increase as much as 400 points (and have the testimonials to prove it)!

 

Class Rules

The techniques need to be practiced.  Students are to regard assignments as such.  The best means to analyze problem areas is to look at the students’ work.  Therefore, SHOW YOUR WORK!
Written quizzes, oral quizzes, and simulation periods will help define the students’ strengths.
Notate individual difficulties and bring them into class for review and discussion.
Students who simply “do problems” to get through the assignments, rather than practice the methods, as instructed, are not utilizing nor learning the process.  Those who do not utilize the strategies will not see a significant improvement. Those who do follow, review, and practice, will increase their scores.
