The owner has been tutoring my kids – now in 10th grade – since they were in elementary school. The specific needs have varied over the years and Jerry has always been able to adapt his teaching and style to provide what was needed. He is able to provide support across all the academic subjects – but just as critically – he has helped with organizational skills and planning. And he has remained even and cool-headed in the face of difficult teenagers, resistant to getting help. In the face of reactions that would fell the most intact ego, Jerry has maintained his sense of humor. I can’t recommend Y3K Tutor In Your Home highly enough.
Newton North High School Parent
Do you remember when you were a child and your mother would bring in cupcakes to celebrate your birthday? Do you remember bringing in food for a holiday party for the last day before winter break? Remember trading some of your lunch items you didn’t want with a friend? Do you remember trading Halloween candy with your classmates the day after Halloween? Well no more! This is according to the food allergy policy at the Newton Public Schools in Newton, MA and other schools throughout the country. They are using political correctness to ruin celebrations for the entire student population due to a few that may have an allergy.
Here is an excerpt from the Newton Public Schools policy:
“It is a citywide School Committee policy that the sharing of food during snack and/or lunch is not allowed . . . It is also the policy that no food is to be brought into the classroom which means no cupcakes for birthdays or candy at Halloween or Valentine’s Day.”
What happened to allowing kids to be kids? What happened to personal responsibility where if one is allergic to something, they simply say “No thank you” and don’t eat it?
We just received a food allergy policy from one of the elementary schools at the Newton Public Schools in Newton, MA. What we found was shocking. Gone are the days of having the kids with allergies sit at a nut-free table. Now they are forcing all kids that eat nuts to sit at a nut table and kids with hummus and chick peas to sit at a separate table. Has the world gone crazy?
Below is an excerpt from the food allergy policy:
“There will be a nut table in the cafeteria. All students who bring lunch containing peanuts, other tree nuts (including some spreads such as Nutella) or sesame seeds must sit at this table. There will also be a hummus table in the cafeteria. All students who bring a lunch that has hummus or chickpeas must sit at this table. All children will wash their hands before snack/lunch. Children sitting at the nut table or hummus table must wash their hands after snack/lunch. The staff will also wash all tables following snack and lunch, with special attention being paid to the washing of the nut table and hummus table. Classrooms that have a student with an allergy will have a separate table for nuts/ hummus for snack time.”

I needed a tutor to help with a math exam. The tutor I have been meeting with was absolutely fantastic and I am very happy with the service I received. The Y3K Tutor In Your Home tutor went out of his way to work around my schedule. He accurately observed my strengths and weaknesses and developed a plan of attack that best suited me and my study habits. He also was able to breakdown each formula and put it into very simple terms/steps that were easy for me to execute. After the test, I am happy to report the good news of my 10 point jump from the previous test. He was really pleased to hear about my success and know he sincerely cares about me. I am very content with my experience with Y3K Tutor In Your Home. I highly recommend and I will be going back any chance I get.
You won’t be able to find a nicer, more dedicated bunch of people than the staff at Y3K Tutor In Your Home. They are very nice, intelligent people that provide some of the best customer service that I’ve ever received. I highly recommend Y3K Tutor In Your Home.
The Countryside Elementary School’s 2016 raffle will be held soon. Look for the Y3K Tutor In Your Home tutoring and test prep certificate we donated. The money raised will be going to a great cause. The Countryside PTO will be helping the Newton, MA students by using the funds for enrichment activities, advanced technology for classrooms and professional services for teachers.
We hope you bid generously on the Y3K Tutor In Your Home tutoring and test prep donation to raise money for the Newton Country Day School at their up coming Tres Bien Auction. Helping the children of Newton MA and surrounding towns is a worthy cause in our book.
