John has been tutoring my 16 year old daughter in prep for her SAT test. He was very flexible in scheduling sessions for Sunday mornings given the heavy schedule my daughter maintains. John's style is very effective in making the material content interesting, light and relatable to a teenager. He uses a good balance of humor and examples that keep her engaged throughout the session. Homework assigned is manageable and not burdensome. John is very intelligent and has a very good grasp of the material content. He provides a professional service and we look forward to the results of my daughter's test.

I’m currently attending my first year at Cal Poly San Luis Obispo, and undoubtedly attribute much of my knowledge that has helped me succeed thus far in college to my tutoring sessions with David! When I was a senior in highschool, I spent so much time stressing over my SAT/ACT. I knew the EXACT score I needed to get into the schools I wanted to attend and was very adamant with David about achieving them. He was the most helpful, most kind, and DEFINITELY most intelligent instructor I have ever encountered. In fact, he was so extroidinary that when I got my scores back, I had received the EXACT score I told him I wanted to strive for. Now, I recommend all of my younger friends to David! I promise you that you will not regret investing your time with him. Best. tutor. ever. xo, Rachel G.

Tim was a great teacher for me! He was easy to talk to,understood my questions, and helped me improve my weak points. After working with him for a few months, I was able to understand a lot of the material provided in the SAT test and improve a lot on my practice test. Overall, Tim is a great teacher for learning how to improve your English , especially to prepare for SAT test.

My daughter worked with Mathman Tutoring when she was in high school. She found his tutoring to be very helpful in understanding concepts that she hadn't quite gotten in class. It was very convenient to have him come to our house. I would recommend his services to my friends.

Josh was an awesome SAT tutor for my son, increasing his scores 110 points in just a few weeks of tutoring. Prior to Josh, my son was enrolled in a commercial SAT prep course: 3 hours on Friday evenings and six hours on Saturdays along with 11 other students. My son did not respond well to the group setting. These sessions could not hold his attention, and it became a weekly battle to get him to go. After a few weeks, he quit the course and decided that individual tutoring would be a better option. Josh’s style of personalized attention offered my son the back and forth interaction he needed to maintain interest and motivation. He had a great depth of knowledge (Yale graduate), as well as a warm and personal demeanor. He took the time to understand my son’s individual style of learning and identified the areas with which he needed more assistance. In summary, my son benefitted greatly from Josh’s talents, and I would highly recommend him to anyone needing one-on-one and personalized attention.

Amazing!! Jeriah is very professional and REALLY cares about the child's education. He is confident in his work and it shows. He is able to change his way of communication so his student is able to comprehend the lesson. Hands down the best tutor we've ever had!! We are extremely thankful for Jeriah and his incredible work ethic and morals.

Definitely ask about online tutoring. I first did in-person tutoring and it was very good but then we switched over to online and I'm extremely happy. The flexibility is unbelievable.

Angela does the best job of explaining concepts for AP/SAT if you are trying to learn something outside of school. We did our tutoring over the computer, but I actually found it more engaging than in person. For example, I was confused about cos (180degrees), because I hadn't learned about it in school yet. Angela's explanation also made 10x more sense than what my math teacher would say. Now I FINALLY understand how to find cos (180degrees)!

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.

Dan tutored our daughter for 2 school years and was a great help in explaining math concepts that were very difficult to her. He was always will to explain it a different way to try to get it to click for her. Dan was always encouraging and had an upbeat positive attitude. I also really liked that Dan worked her for the full hour-- really got our money's worth. She would not have passed without his help. We'd still be using Dan if he hadn't relocated-- so I highly recommend his tutoring services.

Mark tutored our daughter for SAT. He really broke down the topics and made them very easy to comprehend. It's thanks to him our daughter scored 2230 and that's 4 months after she scored 1900 the first time she took the test. Our daughter has ADHD and he made a great effort of making sure that our daughter was comfortable and wasn't getting too overwhelmed by the material. I highly recommend him

About

Laila’s appreciation and passion for learning and teaching came at an early age. Teaching Saturday playschool activities at the age of 12, she had her first TA position at her British Secondary school by 15, and began teaching English and Math through cartooning at 18. She is also academically excelled in that she began programming at 11, studied artificial intelligence at 16, 10 GCSE’s, 4 A’ Levels. A very extensive BA and double Masters (which she completed simultaneously in 2.5yrs with a GPA of 3.93) which are MBA in marketing and management and an MIT in Applications development, and several certifications. Currently she tutors and teaches over 63 subjects, high-stakes standardized tests and study skills. Her secret is her aggressive desire to learn and having a highly skilled memory system does provide a great tool. She uses visual cues, technological mediums and traditional learning methods in order to provide the best possible results. She works with students from K-12, undergrad, and grad, from different learning curves including those with ADD and dyslexia. I truly do believe that education is a vehicle to pursue success. I enjoy teaching and facilitating the learning process. There is something amazing that happens when you watch a student learn and achieve understanding and in turn reach a higher grade or pursue further education. I am young, well educated in a variety of subjects. I do research on topics prior to meeting with students and I have both online, one-on-one and group tutoring/ teaching experience. I make teaching an understanding not just -'you need to learn this because you have to'. I try my best to find how you can best learn and apply those methods that suit you. Everyone is different and deserves to learn the way that they can achieve the most out of and to excel. I like to think of myself as well rounded and having worn many different hats to teach myself to become as versatile and knowledgeable in as many areas as I could. This I have practiced in my professional career as a brand specialist and as a tutor. I have pursued an extensive degree in undergrad, 2 masters and several certifications as well as a 20 year history as a tutor.
