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.
Moe is a very good tutor. I came to him through an app called varsity tutors, and saying Moe helped me is an understatement. My math grade skyrocketed. My average test score went up 20% and really changed my year. If you're looking for a reliable, smart, and nice tutor, look no further.
Talk about a confidence boosting environment provided to your child, I cannot say enough about this test prep service. The professional nature of the tutor, and his understanding of the needs of your child is just impeccable. My son is so much happier about his studying and to see that is a joy. Thank you so much, he is actually looking forward to his SATs.
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.
Incredibly helpful. I was studying for a Calc. Probability test, definitely improved my grade. Taught me two weeks of lessons in the span of two hours, and I learned more than my classmates! Definitely will meet with again if I need more help! Thank you so much!
She has great teaching strategies and has been extremely helpful while I prepare to take a test!
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!
Audrey is a great math tutor. We needed her assistance with our son who is a sophomore that just wasn't getting what he needed in class due to size and limited time the teacher had to spend with each student. Within a few weeks we noticed his test and homework scores have improved from a 58 to 76 and now he's also getting all his homework correct and impressing not only his teacher but other students.
My son has never considered math his forte. After just a few hours with Mark he got a 98% on his Pre-Calculus Test. My son says, "He explains the math from a practical perspective making it easier to understand". We couldn't be happier and hope to have Mark continue to tutor our College age son thru Calculus for Engineers and Physics, too. Mark responded promptly, politely and professionally to our request for a tutor thru Thumbtack. He took plenty of time on the phone to get to know my son's needs and course demands. The type of book, class format and so on. Mark arrives on time (always a few minutes early) and is ready to tutor. He has a lot of experience, seems like a good guy and my son is very pleased that we found Mark.
We enlisted Lynda's tutoring when my daughter was having a lot of trouble with reading and AIMS was coming up. When Lynda first started my daughter was reading about 80 words per minute and in just a few short weeks she was up to 116 words per minute and passing the AIMS test! My daughter has never been more confident in her reading and writing! Even though we originally only were going to tutor through the AIMS test we decided to keep it up through the summer and still meet with Lynda once a week and my daughter is excelling in school and now loves learning!
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.
Review pending first session which will be tonight.
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.
Our son is in high school geometry and was getting a D. After the very first lesson he started getting all A's on his quizzes and exams. He even got 100% on one of his tests. Their unique approach and customization lessons tailored to my sons own learning level is what has made this very successful. Nothing cookie cutter about their programs. Highly recommended! D. Cohen
Christopher is a miracle worker. I hired him at close to the last minute to help my daughter prepare for the SSAT test, which was a last minute thing and left her only 2 weeks to prepare. I was concerned because she'd just come out of a gifted math class but was very confused and I was helpless in this new era of common core. In addition to an incredible manner with her, he prepared and gave her the confidence she needed to get 98-99th percentiles on the test. He was happy to go over any subject. Now that she's in a private middle school, we keep seeing Christopher once a week so she always has a helpful and supportive ear for the things mom and dad are useless at. Thanks so much Christopher!

I am professional, dedication, and diligent with regard to all aspects of my life. I have always worked hard throughout school, as well as with any concurrent or subsequent jobs. I work in healthcare, as I have an unwavering passion for helping others in all aspects of life. I have ADHD myself, which consequently lead me to develop my own study methods as the typical one's didn't seem to work as well. I have the ability for edification of the same material, presented in multiple fashions.
