Juliet's teacher preparation at San Diego State really shines. She's in the know about Common Core, college guidelines, and test prep. Our kids love working with her- she's always prepared, enthusiastic, and challenges them with materials they're interested in! Our oldest son's writing in particular has really blossomed since he's started lessons with her six months ago. She's the best!
Lynne is great! I was unsure about trying yet another Spanish tutor, but it was necessary as my girls were not doing well with the never ending train of substitute teachers the school was giving them for their class. Lynne brought it all together so that it made sense and my girls could finally get some continuity. I don't know what we would have done with out her. In just a couple of weeks they were on track and their grades were back up where they should have been. Lynne didn't even need to know what the class was doing, she spoke with my girls and started to build on what they knew. It worked and we are very happy.
I'm a 29-year-old consultant, and as a professional, I'm invested in improving my business writing. Jenny has been teaching me the finer points of the English language, making my writing more impactful and effective in the professional setting. Jenny is highly organized and each week prepares a great lesson plan with supporting materials to work through. Currently, I've had 5 lessons with Jenny and my writing has vastly improved. I highly recommend Jenny for anyone looking to improve their knowledge of the English language, whether that be fundamental grammar or more advanced, stylistic writing techniques.
I'm so happy I came to Elite Tutoring for my families needs. They were a little reserved and uneasy about getting the xtra education and help they required. Eric or Mr. B as the kids call him, has done an exceptional job, at helping my cousins exceed in school and make them feel confident about learning again and that's it's ok to get the extra help needed. Thanks again Mr.B!
Mrs. Gomez was a substitute Teacher at Wolf Canyon Elementary from the Chula Vista Elementary School District she sub for my Teacher Lydia Martinez, she was always on time, follow the classroom routine and the Teacher's lesson plans. She is bilingual we had two groups morning class in English, afternoon class in Spanish. It was a Preschool class.She had good control of the children. She always did an outstanding job. Mrs. Martinez was very pleased with her and would call her when she knew she was going to be out. Very courteous with Mrs. Gonzalez and myself we were the classroom assistants.
My 8 year old daughter, Ariah, has weekly spanish tutor sessions with Rosy and she loves her. Ariah mentioned to me that she can really understand now when she's with Rosy because Rosy makes everything make sense. Also Rosy is very thorough when it comes to lesson plans and homework. She is in contact with my daughter's teachers and ensures that the teachings coincide with what's expected at school. We still have a long way to go, but so far so good.
Travis tutored me for about two years in my latter half of high school. He provided me all the necessary tools so score extremely high on the SAT and subject tests. He cares so much about his students and their success and goals in life. I'm currently at the college of my dreams, University of Southern California, and without Travis' constant mentoring I am unsure if I would have been given this opportunity. I cannot think of someone more highly recommended in my community to not only tutor kids but also guide them through the trials of growing up than Travis.
I've learned more under Tan's instruction than I ever have anywhere else; Mr. Huynh exceeds at his job to not only help his pupils succeed in school, but to give the vital lessons everyone needs to know going into life.
Working with Fabiana and with Sunny Rose has been great! The hours are flexible, which works for my messy schedule and the teachers are really nice and helpful. I found this really helpful for Italian and it helps a lot with the other languages I am learning in school. Would definitely recommend it!
Konie is an outstanding educator, motivator and advocate for my 1st grader. She has helped our child read and write and after 3 months, he is now above grade level. He was so frustrated and upset with school before we came to her, that I couldn't get him to write his name without him becoming upset or having a tantrum. She has a progressive program, including structured rewards, pre-planned lessons that build skills and reinforce learning step-by-step. Her style is positive and caring. I endorse Konie without any reservations. I'm so glad we found her!
Ms. H helped with common core lesson planning and guidelines in my second grade class room. She is extremely knowledgeable!
Couldn't be happier with my experience with Katie! She helped me with graduate school application essays that were very short. I wanted to get a lot of information across and she helped me navigate it, so my ideas were concise, genuine and eloquent. I highly suggest meeting with her in person as after just one meeting, we were able to construct an outline for an essay that before had been a mess of a free write. She enjoys doing this work and cares about each project, to the point she researched the specific program I was applying to, so as to more properly gear my personal statement for them. Without a doubt my go to for professional proofreading and editing.
I have taken private lessons with Evelyn to refresh my advanced conversational skills. Evelyn comes prepared to our session, and always make sure to take you out and over your comfort zone. She makes the session interesting by introducing reading material on different subjects, discussing them with open end questions, analyzing the grammar and applying lessons learned to your own individual situation. She makes learning fun and challenging at the same time!
Mathnasium of Rancho San Diego West is the best math tutoring place for my kids. The tutors are knowledgeable and hard working. Each kid work on his/her own pace and own customize curriculum. My kids have been to this place for almost 2 yrs now and they always looking forward to go every day after school. I would highly recommend this place for math tutoring.
I am so happy that I found Wil's Tutoring for my son! I can already tell after the first lesson that this is going to be a perfect fit. She is extremely professional, dependable and very patient. My 13 year old found her techniques and tutoring style very beneficial! I feel like he is off to a great start in Math already this year.
I tried numerous different tutors for my son’s SAT reading scores, but none of them were as good as Nico. He is very good at communicating the material and ensuring improvements for each lesson. As a graduating high school senior he is able to provide a unique perspective that other most other tutors can’t. This came in handy when it came to communicating the best test centers, SAT dates, and also the atmosphere of the test.
Kyle tutored my high school daughter in Latin. He made it enjoyable for her and manageable. He takes an interest in the student as a person and tailors his lesson plans accordingly. I highly recommend him.
I was working as a high professional at a very prominent company when my colleague offered English lessons to improve my communication skills. After intensive screen among high ranking candidates, she found Alice. Alice made me understand what was wrong in my communication style. She had the most correct way of addressing the core of the problem without affecting my feelings. Although she was not an expert in cell based assays, Alice was capable of providing an advice on how to structure my thoughts and provided directions on how to compose a good e-mail. She made me feel capable of blogging and reaching wider audience. Alice’s advices and insights moved me at deeper level. After her teaching I was finally capable of "decomposing" my cultural heritage and composing myself again within a new cultural landscape. Alice made me believe in myself "in English". I am not reading “for my soul” only in my mother tongue anymore but also in English. After her lessons, I am capable of reaching to people for whom I care the most: my beloved friends and coworkers.
BoostAcademy was an amazing find for my 2 boys. They changed schools recently and were completely lost with new Common Core math ideas. 2 lessons per week for just a few weeks and they are back at the top of their class! It's a great system that is easy to use and incredibly valuable to my family and probably yours.
I am completing my undergraduate degree (marketing/management) but needed extra support passing the tougher classes like finance and supply chain management. Working full time it was important for me to find a tutor that could help me grasp "the big picture" quickly (after a long day at work) so I could complete weekly assignments on time & Maria has NEVER let me down! If you're looking for a tutor that's knowledgeable, takes the necessary time to ensure you understand the core concepts of the course, and truly supports you EVERY STEP of the way - do not hesitate and hire her immediately. I ended up keeping her as a tutor for other classes because she brings the lessons to life with her knowledge & unique insight. I graduate this Fall & have no gray hair & "peace of mind" because of this amazing lady! She's your personal "educational champion" for when times get tough (and they do for all students) - she's a tutor but I consider her a friend & would recommend her to students at all levels. Kent Every class I've had her help in have resulted in A's & I'm actually using finance concepts all the time now! I look

My name is Stephen Riley, and I am a traveling music and English teacher. Along with my wife, Annelisa Riley, I have been working for the past two years to hone in on what makes the English language easy for some and hard for others. After working in China for a year teaching English to students ranging from age 1-12, Annelisa and I began dreaming and scheming of ways to improve the process of learning English while having a lot of fun. Both Annelisa and I have been deeply moved by music and involved in the creation of music from early in life. Now, we believe we have found a way of teaching that speaks for both us as teachers and you as students. Everyone loves music, and everyone needs to communicate to have long-term success. Our curriculum uses classic folk music and contemporary songs to bring the student deeper into the English language. By focusing on the poetic lyrics of folk music, we are able to bring the student a more compulsory understanding of how to form sentences and adequately express themselves. Then we begin working with the student on learning to play some of these songs, focusing on guitar chords, strumming patterns, and for the more experienced students, harmonica playing. Finally, we work with the student to create an original piece of music in English that they can be proud to call their own work of art. Riley School of American Folk Music is not just about learning to speak the English language. It is about learning to create.
