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!

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.

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!

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!

Great Teacher I have just started from a very basic understanding and Peggy quickly adapts the level to meet yours, while at the same time demands your full focus and intensity to learn as much as possible during the lessons. Fantastic so far, would recommend to anyone.

I had several students in my special ed program participate in CogMed via Zoom. My students enjoyed working with the coaches at Skills for School Success. After the sessions were completed, we saw growth in many areas including improved focus, work habits, and even penmanship. The general education teacher also reported seeing areas of growth. Skills for School Sucess coaches were professional, friendly, and committed to seeing my students grow and improve. I highly recommend Skills for School Success to help students improve working memory which positvely impacts many facets of academics growth.

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!

Baraka has been tutoring my 12-year-old daughter consistently in math for the past 2 years. He is an incredible tutor in that he is reliable, patient, trustworthy and intelligent. His teaching methods are effective, evidenced by my daughter's grades. My daughter's mathematical skills has improved substantially since he's been working with her. All in all, he is a phenomenal tutor and I would recommend his services to anyone who is need of supplemental academic support in mathematics.

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. She is a very kind and energetic person who is always willing to change her schedule to fit your own. I would strongly recommend Vanessa to anybody who needs help!

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.
