Dr. S is patient with our daughter but firm. He's challenging her in her preparation for the ACT and able to help her across the multiple subjects necessary.
Kiran is an excellent educator. I don’t even have know where to begin with the amount of help he has given me throughout our tutoring sessions. Before I was tutored by Kiran, I was overwhelmed with all the entry exams for the ACT and SAT, I was not performing well on the math sections so my parents thought it would be best to get me a tutor. Kiran helped me set up a schedule of where we would meet every weekend. The whole month of August every weekend I would be tutored for around 10 hours. It seems like a lot of time putting into tutoring and a lot of hard work, but Kiran made it feel so easy. He set up lessons custom to my style of learning and went over every math formula until I understood and memorized it. He helped me push myself to my best ability, and eventually made math one of my favorite subjects. My ultimate goal was to score higher on my act Math, and Kiran helped me score 6 points higher on my math section. (Which is very difficult and rare to have that big of a jump in test scores). With the help of Kiran, my ACT score went up, I got into the University I planned on going to, and I received a Merit Scholarship from that University. The math Kiran taught me was specific to the ACT, however it has helped me so much more further than that. Such as in the classroom it’s so much more easier for me to understand and catch on to math, I am now able to comprehend problems and with the memorization of formulas I am able to test better. His teaching went beyond education, he helped me form confidence and valuing my education. He helped me realize that anything is possible as long as you work hard for it. His morals and teachings have motivated me and helped me reach my academic goal of going to my dream school on an academic scholarship.
Roberta is enthusiastic and pleasant to work with. As new authors, my daughter and I weren't exactly up to snuff with punctuation skills. Roberta keeps you informed of the whys and wherefores. I especially liked the fact that she didn't change anything in my manuscript. She made suggestions that helped fill in the gaps and kept the storyline cohesive. Bottom line: Roberta is professional, knows her craft, and is a team player. I highly recommend her services. I definitely will be using her services again in the future. -- Darlene Eutsler Lewlis
My son is in 10th grade and a bright boy. However, with ACT tests coming up, we wanted him to reach his highest potential. Through the Chelsea International Getting Into The Ivys test prep program, my son has excelled so much so that he is up to go to Stanford. After doing 6 weeks of private tuition with Dr. Michelle, her patience, understanding and encouragement, has driven my son’s greatest results. He scored 34 on his first time taking the ACT and he had no prior ACT testing experience. I am so impressed and so thankful for the professional experience of Chelsea International.
We went over strategies for SAT and ACT testing. We did practice tests and from there worked on improving my timing. She also guided me in college options and even edited a college essay of mine. I probably didn't spend enough time with her before the test because of how busy I was. But the time I did spend with her was very beneficial.
Maurice is an outstanding educator, an educator that makes students feel capable and confident in accomplishing whatever academic goals they may have or struggle with. He puts all his focus on what students first need to learn in order to get to their goal. He's one of the most understanding educators I've had the pleasure of working with. His patience, regardless of the students difficulty on grasping the academic concept is astonishing. If a student isn't understanding one learning style, he'll try a different way until the student does.
My daughter had a wonderful experience with Jayne. Jayne had tutored her in both SAT and ACT math over the past year. She made huge gains in her score and qualified for a merit scholarship because of it. Jayne's patience, kindness and teaching style made a huge difference. We had had students at ASU tutor her before but with Jayne she definitely felt motivated because she didn't want to let her down. Her encouragement did so much to push my daughter to persevere. So thankful we found her!
Becky Flowers is a fantastic resource for both college test prep and subject matter tutoring. She is incredibly savvy, very responsive, treats her students with respect and is never afraid to push when necessary. I have used her services for both my kids, for both college test prep, college application essays, and for subject matter tutoring. One of my kids is now pursuing his Masters Degree in Quantitative Finance and the other is now a sophomore at a highly rated university. Ms. Flowers has been there every step of the way. I can't recommend her services highly enough!
Linda is great. My resume turned out great. Very easy to talk to and work with..I highly recommend
MoJoe was my tutor for A&P and I know that my A's would have been B's without his amazing tutoring and encouragement. Recently I took my daughter to MoJoe for Algebra tutoring ... suddenly she doesn't hate math! MoJoe has an amazing ability to teach AND to inspire. A rare combination, in my opinion.
this guy really know's his stuff
Stan helped me go from failing to A's in multiple subjects. He was patient, understanding, and had mastery of the material. In addition Stan was able to help me with the issues I had beyond the content that allowed me to do better in other classes that he wasn't tutoring.
My daughter really likes working with Tina. She was failing Alg II and after two sessions with Tina she passed her next two test and made a 81 on her midterm. Tina was able to present the material in a way that was both understandable and a liitle bit enjoyable. I say enjoyable because my daughter did not realize that she had been studying for an hour during either session.Looks like Tina won't be able to continue tutoring but we really hope she can. My daughter is already a little disappointed that she may have to find a new tutor and is dreading her next test without Tina's help.
I called Michelle to inquire about getting a Math tutor for my son Logan who has been absent from school for an extended period due to a heart condition. He had fallen behind in his work and needed help desperately! I had a tutor lined up with another company but unfortunately after waiting for over a week for our sessions to begin, he called the night before we were to begin and told me he would be unable to keep his appointment and wanted to reschedule. I decided to look for another company and I saw the advertisement for East Valley Tutoring. Michelle was absolutely fantastic to speak with and promptly found me an excellent tutor for Logan who agreed to come over for all 3 of the days I had requested. Even on such short notice , she found me an excellent tutor named Janelle who arrived the next day, right on time and was ready to begin helping my son. She was very polite and kind, well spoken and very skilled at her work. Logan was instantly comfortable with her, as were my husband and myself. She really explained the work in detail to Logan, making sure he absolutely understood every step. She was such a tremendous help so quickly!She offered to help him in Language Arts also, another area he needs help in. I have subsequently booked Janelle for another 8 sessions and am looking forward to Logan being able to return to school and be able to keep up with the work his class is doing in his absence. I highly recommend Michelle and East Valley Tutoring to anyone looking for a highly skilled tutor who will arrive on time as promised, with a friendly personality and the desire to help the student succeed. Janelle is an outstanding tutor and East Valley Tutoring is the only place I will call from now on.
We had Remy as a tutor for our daughter for several years. She was wonderful. If you need help with anything, from essays to Algebra and more -- she is a great resource. Our daughter is now a sophomore in college and just finished the semester with straight A's. Remy is kind, patient and a great tutor!
My son was having a hard time with understanding algebra 1 and we were also always arguing about homework - no peace in this situation. He also did NOT want a tutor. Within two weeks, he changed his attitude because the tutor was really getting him to understand algebra. The twice a week sessions got him through all the homework too, so my son got his video game privileges back! THAT made him happy!! Now going into geometry we are still keeping the same tutor and schedule. Our tutor also helps with prepping for tests, keeping our son's backpack organized and structure for writing his English papers. Our son also thinks his tutor is "cool". All and all this is a great thing for our family.
FASTrack Tutors & Test Prep brought me into contact with Mark Kover, who is undoubtedly the best tutor that I have ever worked with. I first met Professor Mark as a struggling 8th Grade Math student, almost certain that I was not going to pass the Math course I was taking at the time. Mark was not only able to help me raise my grade to something passable and substantial, but he even helped me earn an A in the course! Since then, I have worked with Mark as needed, and his guidance and advice has been invaluable in many situations. I would highly recommend Mark for ACT Test Prep, as his testing strategies utilize speed and accuracy, which are the skills needed to succeed on the ACT. With his instruction, I was able to raise my ACT score several points from my previous attempt in merely one weeks time! That ACT score aided me into being accepted to all of the colleges I was considering attending. When it comes to the ACT, Mark will undoubtedly give any student better results than if they were to study with a variety of other tutors, or spend hours attending large group ACT Prep Seminars. One of the most important traits Mark possesses that makes him a great teacher is that he cares about his students' lives outside of their Math Textbook. This makes him not only a tutor, but also a friend and a mentor. He understands that academic success can correlate with success in areas of life outside the classroom. This is an understanding that not all teachers have, and I can say from personal experience that Mark goes above and beyond to make a difference in other's lives.
Amy has been a wonderful pre-Algebra tutor for our 8th grade daughter. She is very friendly and knowledgeable and is able to sit down with our daughter and patiently go over homework. She comes for an hour two times a week. Within a matter of weeks of hiring her, our daughter's grade went from a D to B! We owe a lot of this improvement to Amy. I highly recommend her!
