My son is a JR at a local private HS. He is an honor roll student but confidence to ‘reach’ for more and thereby to get into a great college were not high. He did ok on the PSATs but does need to do better to get into a great engineering school. When looking for SAT courses, I ran into the Knowledge Roundtable and then the profile for Jared. Jared is young enough that my son can relate to him. The most important component that I knew my son needed is to build confidence in all his classes so that he can slam dunk for this very important Junior year in High School. My son has been receiving tutoring (at the Knowledge Roundtable on location in Exeter) twice a week for only 6 weeks so far and he is already so much more confident about and committed to his work load. Respectfully, Lisa
Jared has done an excellent job working with my daughter. He has demonstrated many strategies allowing her to feel more confident with the upcoming tests. His flexibility and patience is exemplary. I would highly recommend Jared to anyone looking for a tutor.

Here we will be discussing the topic of “Order of Operations.” Many math students find simplifying an expression to be daunting at first because they do not know which steps to take as there appears to be multiple options. To clarify, the order of operations is ALWAYS: P: Parenthesis E: Exponents M: Multiplication D: Division…

Like a perfect gymnast’s routine, a good essay all comes down to the dismount. You warm-up with an introduction. And in your body paragraphs you twist and turn — all while trying to keep a balanced argument. But if you really want to stick the landing, you’ll need a strong conclusion.

Passive voice is used by many writers, but it is found by readers to be an annoying grammatical quirk. It’s wordy and confusing. And although it is used by some writers to sound smart, usually you are just made to sound robotic and distant. How can it be avoided by you? Let that be found…
