I've been doing one hour of tutoring/day with a language coach from Spanish55 for about a month now. It's been an incredible experience!! I have learned so much this month and it's really helping to prepare me to care for Spanish speaking patients as a student midwife. I feel so grateful to have found Spanish55!
Juliet Hawke is an amazing educator. She helped my daughter prepare for the SAT and both her instruction and encouragement were invaluable to my daughter!! She felt that her time spent tutoring with Juliet was very beneficial and she was confident going into the test. Juliet is very organized, professional, knowledgeable and personable! I would highly recommend her to any of my friends that have a need for English or test prep tutoring. Weâll be calling her again when itâs time to prepare for the AP Lit test!! Thank you Juliet for your help!!!
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 Joyees 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 Joyees 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.
Ray is a very professional and a courteous gentleman! His knowledge and teaching methods are very understandable and fun! Our daughter's test scores have improved tremendously! We would highly recommend Ray to anyone who needs tutoring in math or any related course!
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.
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!
I was signed up to take a Kaplan course for GMAT prep and was talking to a co-worker about it when they told me their story. They took one of the same Kaplan courses I was signed up to take and didn't get their desired GMAT score. In their second attempt, they signed up for private tutoring with John Easter, one of Elite Home Tutoring tutors, and their GMAT score improved by over 100 points. After hearing this story, I called to cancel my Kaplan class & signed up with Elite Home Tutoring, with a special request to work with John. During my studies, I decided that I wanted to take the GRE instead of the GMAT. I explained this to my tutor John and to Eric at Elite Home Tutoring and the change was so simple. John is not only skilled in GMAT prep but GRE prep as well. So the only thing that would need to change were the materials. If you're looking for the best resources for test prep I highly recommend Elite Home Tutoring. I have no complaints!
Excellent job as a tutor/teacher. Focused on conversation with correct grammar. Would definitely hire for my son again.
This is the best tutoring company I've ever come across.
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!
Brandon is a great tutor! He recognized what my son needed and taught him well. Professional, patient, kind and punctual. Thank you Brandon!
Last year, we hired Kerry as a Math tutor for my step son who was in 6th grade and we were very happy with her services and his improvements. Kerry is a great tutor; she is experienced and patient and I highly recommend her.
Philip is great--a very dedicated tutor. He sent me several options for language programs and gave really helpful homework lessons, as well as many tips on the culture and alternative ways to pick up language (good French movies to watch, music, games, etc). Very nice man and great tutor!
Baeleigh (our daughter to whom James is tutoring) says, "I love that instead of James just telling me how to do something, he uses visuals and is very interactive in explaining something to me. There is nothing that he can do better, I am happy that he is my tutor." As parents, we like that he is so good at finding how Baeleigh learns best so that he can teach her in a way she understands. He is patient and has been good at keeping in touch with her teachers and also with us.
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!
Mary Ellen is one of the best English and writing tutors out there. She has been working with both of my sons, now ages 14 and 17, for several years, helping them develop their writing and literary analysis skills. My older son had problems organizing his thoughts and expressing his ideas clearly and succinctly, and Mary Ellen was instrumental in helping him develop these writing skills. She is adept at literary analysis, an area my younger son needed support in, and provided the extra help he needed to fully comprehend the difficult novels his class was reading. As importantly, Mary Ellen has an amazing ability to relate to her students and both my boys looked forward to working with her.
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.
Joseph Descans helped me with the editing of several documents. His knowledge and editing skills were outstanding, and his patience with the process was the best part. It can be tremendously frustrating when you have "writer's block" and the words just don't come out right, but a patient tutor is such a great asset to have in your back pocket!
I am a practicing attorney (part-time) interested in tutoring on the side. I have always had a passion for teaching, and I have been tutoring on and off since college. My undergrad degree is from Emory University, and my law degree is from University of San Diego. I am also certified to teach ESL. I am qualified to tutor in most subjects, so please get in touch!
I was asked to remain at a local elementary school even after the teacher I was subbing for returned. With district H R approval, I was asked to take over that class while the teacher on extended leave was asked to do assessment testing for multiple grades upon her return..This was a huge compliment to me and my abilities to create "a sense of community" for the students who had multiple subs and loss of continuity and progress.
