As we celebrate our 20th school year, we would like to thank some important people that made Y3K Tutor In Your Home the award winning success it is today.

If you were with us over the summer, thank you for trusting us with your child to show them the success that is possible and accomplishing their learning goals. If your student is returning for another school year after a relaxing but unusually wet or hot summer (depending on where you were), we say welcome back! If your family is starting Y3K Tutor In Your Home tutoring sessions with us for the first time this school year, we also welcome you. Let’s have fun learning and savoring the thrill of achieving success together!
Are your children doing any remote learning this year? Many kids use a laptop computer in positions that may feel comfortable at the moment but are doing damage in the long run. Many students are suffering from neck and back pain due to long periods of time on their laptops sitting in unhealthy positions. Due to poor ergonomics, students are getting neck and upper back pain, which often includes pain into the shoulders as well.
Next time we will share some ergonomic suggestions to keep your kids pain-free while working remotely from home.
Our Y3K Tutor In Your Home tutor has been terrific for my 7th grader with executive function and decoding issues. He met a boy frustrated about school, quickly established a great rapport and turned him into a boy with some confidence that he could meet the demands of 7th grade. It is an ongoing process. Our tutor helps each week with organization of materials and assignments and working on homework where a little more explanation is needed. He has been particularly helpful in helping with writing assignments, getting my son to think through the question, his argument and then really thoroughly explaining and supporting his arguments. Before he was struggling to write 3 paragraphs, and now he is checking to make sure he has articulated every thought clearly. Our tutor’s support each week reinforces the lessons and keeps my son on track and organized. His grades have come up, but most importantly he is confident in himself as a student and is engaging more with teachers during the day.

Imagination can be just as important and sometimes even more important than knowledge.
I am very happy with Y3K Tutor In Your Home who has been tutoring my child for the last 2 years. Our tutor has a pleasing and convincing way around stepping up your child’s academic areas of interest. He has shown excellent methods to help my child progress through his writing skills, organizational skills and when it comes to studying. He is easy to work with and very good at communicating with my son. Above all, accommodating the success needed for a child’s growth. My son loves his tutoring sessions. I would highly recommend our tutor from Y3K Tutor In Your Home. He’s a brilliant tutor and my child has benefited tremendously from these sessions.

PARENTS AGREE: Y3K TUTOR IN YOUR HOME CHANGES LIVES
Y3K Tutor In Your Home has been working with our 7-year-old son who was diagnosed with executive function. After only a few sessions I could not believe the difference in his writing and math. I am amazed that in such a short period of time we went from not being able to read anything our son wrote, to having him write complete legible sentences. My son’s tutor has a natural ability for making children feel comfortable. He also shows them that it is OK to make mistakes. I talked to many different people who provided tutoring services and found that their process was very specific and not necessarily tailored to the child and their way of learning. After talking to Jerry I knew our search was over. Jerry is amazing and cares very much for the kids he works with. I cannot thank him enough for his hard work, dedication, advice and most of all the hope that he has given me for my son and his future.
