Michael was really patient and kind with our son. We will definitely contact him again for any future math tutoring. He spent a lot of time explaining concepts. He even helped with test taking strategies. We were very grateful for his help!

Mr. Matlak is an outstanding Math tutor - I only wish we had found him sooner so my son would not have had to struggle through Algebra last year. He interacts well, encourages my son to interact - they work together, it's not just Mr. Matlak teaching my son. My son's Geometry grades have improved and he has expressed he has a much better understanding of assignments after tutoring. I would give Matlak Math Tutoring my highest recommendation!

Called Daniel to help me at the last minute get ready for a statistics test. He met me the next morning and really helped me understand some concepts I was struggling with, especially word problems and figuring out which equations should be used. He was great to work with and really knows his stuff! Highly recommend him for math tutoring!!

This past summer, I was in search of a tutor to assist my brother with his preparation for the ACT. A number of conversations with local tutors proved fruitless, as they were either too expensive or had rigid schedules. After doing some research online, I came across Joyee’s profile on Wyzant. I was particularly impressed by his extensive background in ACT tutoring having worked for some well-regarded test preparation companies. In addition, his rates were extremely fair. I enlisted Joyee’s tutoring services via skype, and my experience was remarkable. In spite of the three hour time difference between the east coast and west coast, Joyee remained a consummate professional with regard to his scheduling and punctuality. Most importantly, he is fully invested in his students, demonstrating patience and understanding whilst pushing them to achieve their full potential. Prior to working with Joyee, my brother had an initial diagnostic score of 27. After six weeks of tutoring with Joyee my brother scored a 35 on the September 2015 ACT. I highly recommend Joyee, his tutoring services are the perfect complement for any motivated high school student seeking help with test preparation.

I needed last minute tutoring for a final exam and Nina was quick to respond and schedule me last minute. She explained everything very clearly and made sure to answer any questions I had. I feel like I learned more information in just one tutoring session than in most of my math classes this semester. I would highly recommend her for math tutoring.

Jenny is tutoring my son in math and biology. My son attends a college prep high school. She has been very flexible with the schedule and really wants him to "understand" the material. Although it has only been two sessions thus far my child is excited to learn and he understands the material. She arrives on time , confirms the day of and is very professional. So far we are happy with her service.

Jenny was a fantastic ACT tutor for my son! I could not have picked a better tutor. Jenny worked with him this summer and was able to quickly ascertain his areas of strength and areas for needed development for the ACT. She also quickly assessed his learning style and put together an efficient customized learning/tutoring plan and tutoring schedule for the summer that helped him make huge strides in both his strongest and weakest sections of the ACT, improving his already high comprehensive test results by 5 points thus far with another week of tutoring yet to go! In particular she did an amazing job tutoring him on the English portion, helping him go from a 26 to a 35 in that section! He has really enjoyed working with her and looked forward to their tutoring sessions. I will be signing my younger son up for ACT tutoring with Jenny next summer for sure!

Vanessa has been tutoring me for about two months, and I have never learned so much in such a short period. She has many tips and tricks to help me remember all of the rules of the Spanish language.

As a teacher and instructional consultant, I can honestly say that Manda definitely knows how to teach reading, comprehension, spelling and writing. She also has the unique ability to frame/organize the content of difficult courses, such as chemistry and calculus so that students can easily grasp it successfully. It is evident that she deeply cares for each individual student and I can attest to the success she has had with her students in regards to personal, as well as academic growth. She is an excellent tutor!

The highest grade i ever got in any math class was a C- (no joke). When I got to college I had to get an A but still stuggled in math (trigonometry). Meesum said he was willing to help and I haven't received a lower than a 90% yet. He breaks the problems step by step and at a slow pace so I could understand it. He also usually knows what homework type problems will be on the test. BEST MATH TUTOR EVER.
