3 visits into tutoring, daughter who doesn't get math seems to be doing well with tutoring.
Smooth transition. From the first phone call onward. We have found the right tutoring company for us.
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.
I’ve taken my SATs a couple of times and although I am not a bad student, I just felt that I could have done better, I knew it inside, but just could not find where it was. I got the Getting Into The Ivys tutoring program and worked with a Chelsea tutor. What I really like about my tutor is that she’s a qualified teacher and is professional and knows how to actually teach concepts properly. I really did not want to take any chances. Going to university is very important to me and my family. Susan my tutor developed a special study plan just for me, which helped me focus on my key weaknesses, without feeling de-motivated, in-fact I was so enthused by her, I actually looked forward to all my sessions. She is a brilliant tutor and I am so very grateful. I was able to increase my composite core by 100. I am very pleased.
Arielle, Is a gift to a world that does not stop and help. Arielle came to my home and instantly made a kind hearted impact on my child. My son is in a very intense 9th grade bio-technology stem program and I quickly discovered that I was in way over my head in helping my child with his schoolwork; I had no idea what to do - then I found Arielle! Arielle picks and chooses students that need hope - she finds the underdogs! She is proficient in all subjects and more importantly she knows how to teach your child how to get the grades that make Harvard, Princeton, or Stanford knock on your child's educational door. She knows Harvard well because she got her Doctorate from Harvard at the age of 26. Upon the conclusion of an "in person 3way conference meeting" with Arielle, My Son's Algebra Teacher, and myself; the teacher paused and asked Arielle if she would consider tutoring her 9 year old child - and this Algebra Teacher is wicked smart, she knows what she witnessed in Arielle Why Does Arielle do this? It is not because she has a medical degree at 29 but rather (helping students thrive "is her life's passion") - she often does her magic after putting in a full day at her medical office. From day one I told her that she under charges, so I instantly paid her more. Do yourself a favor and don't make it about the money, make it about the experience and you will find success. Do yourself another favor and know that this testimonial is not too good to be true... Signed Terry A Grateful Parent
Online tutoring works great with these guys as their system is better than what I expected.
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!
Joy is amazing! She loves what she does and my daughter looks forward to every tutor session!
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.
Sara helped my son get through algebra with diligence and the highest level of professionalism. She is reliable, thoughtful, and well worth the tutoring cost.
John tutored my daughter for freshman geometry. He presented concepts and information in an organized and detailed manner. He was professional and patient and when my daughter was ready to move on, he let us know. I highly recommend John!

I'm a math teacher who has been tutoring math for twelve years. I also provide other services in addition to tutoring.
Experienced teacher and college professor who can help in reading, writing, history, social studies, and college admissions. Able to tutor up to graduate students. Personally achieved 89% percentile or higher on standardized tests from AP to SAT to LSAT.
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.
I am an experienced private tutor teaching several different subjects. I am passionate about teaching, and I, myself, adore the learning process! I find passion in connecting with students, targeting their needs, and achieving their version of success. Every student is entirely unique, and each teaching experience holds its own outcomes. My tutoring begins with the goals and hopes of the student. They establish their goals, and I write a lesson plan that will get them accomplished efficiently. I work with students' current materials (notes, homework, or course materials) and also bring to the table my own tools and information to provide a well-rounded learning experience. I am always open to helping with a quick math problem or additional questions that come up in between lessons. I tutor standardized tests such as the ACT, SAT, GED, TEAS, and HESI. I have years of experience in this area and truly enjoy this type of tutoring. I give students valuable test-taking advice and help them get to know the material, rules, and format of their particular test. During my first meeting, I assess students with a comprehensive test, which I use as my jumping off point. I also discuss the students' goals, concerns, and results of past or similar tests. I develop a general impression of the students' unique learning style during this meeting. I write customized lesson plans in each area, targeting the students' strengths, weaknesses, and individual needs. We move through the material at a pace appropriate for the student. It is exciting to see students go from nervous and concerned to relaxed and excited for test day! I tutor biology, anatomy and physiology, and microbiology. I have excelled in these areas and find the subject matter purely fascinating. I love working with students to help them develop an understanding of scientific material and its implications in our world! I offer tutoring in English, writing, and spelling. These subjects offer an important foundation for all studies, and I like to help students secure knowledge and comfort in these areas. I also offer comprehensive tutoring (all subjects) for elementary students. This is such an important time for learning, and elementary students are such wonderful listeners and learners! I find motivation in these young minds and their desire to learn and discover new material. I believe tutoring can be an essential part of a student's education. Any student may excel at any subject given the right tools and guidance. My method of tutoring directly reflects this belief. The ultimate tutoring situation is one in which I can provide not only information to the students but also resources in which they may find their own information or further their own education.
