Joyee is an exceptional standardized test tutor. I highly recommend him. I found Joyee after an exhaustive search for help with the PSAT/SAT/ACT for my son. My son's school recommended a large national test-prep company, but after investigating that option, we didn't think it was the right fit. My student already understands these tests and has some experience taking them; he needed a person to get him to the "next level" and not waste time going over basic review/prep. Joyee provides fast-paced and completely personalized instruction. He first diagnoses where a student is along the spectrum of readiness for these tests. He zones in on problem areas and has materials ready to strengthen these areas of weakness. My son has enjoyed working with Joyee and says their sessions have definitely increased his confidence for the upcoming tests. I appreciate so many things about having Joyee work with my son. Joyee is extremely intelligent, energetic, and dedicated; he knows what's he's doing and will provide concise, clear instruction; he has a good website where he exchanges files, keeps the tutoring materials organized, etc.; he doesn't waste time during online sessions (you will get your money's worth). I'd recommend Joyee for help with your student's test prep in any circumstances, but particularly if your child is scoring towards the top end of the scoring range and he/she wants that extra boost. Our family appreciates Joyee's assistance and feels it has been very beneficial to our son.
Lynne is just the kind of tutor I was looking for. Because she speaks her well-educated Spanish at a pace I can understand, I am able to converse with her in Spanish in a way that enables her to pick up on my errors. She made note of these, corrected them, and sent me a follow-up list of them via e-mail which is a great way of reinforcing the learning experience. It is primarily conversational Spanish that I want to improve upon. I have tried various ways of improving my Spanish over many years, and working with Lynne was the most successful and satisfying for me. Lynne was very accommodating about meeting at a place and time that was very convenient for me.
I had never used a professional resume writing service but I am so glad I did. I love my new resume. Ashley did a fantastic job - exactly what was promised and worth every penny. I’m glad I’ll have a fresh resume when I officially kick off my search.
Karen is amazing! She encouraged me to think harder about what I was writing, and pushed me to create my best writing. Most importantly, Karen helped my voice shine through in my essays. She was wonderful to work with, and she always got edits back to me quickly. Her comments and suggestions were very intelligent and got me to really think about what message I was conveying in my writing. I wish I could go through the college application process again just to work with Karen a second time!!
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!
I worked with Kelsey while at a small tech start up. She is fantastic to collaborate with, is always thinking of great ideas, and follows through with what she says she is going to do. I would recommend working with Kelsey for any marketing projects you have where you need a creative problem solver. She is your gal!
Leigh Harris has a knack for taking complex topics and writing about them in a clear, concise, and interesting fashion. Whether it be original writing or editing, Leigh is highly recommended for both projects.
I appreciate the punctuality and work quality of the service. Works great with one-to-one conversation and very supportive in the field of writing.
She is great! I was in need of a SAT english tutor in order to compete for a spot at the United States Military Academy at West Point. She showed up on time and if needed would stay extra to make sure I actually improved. I was extremely confident heading into my test and was accepted into West Point. I highly recommend her to anyone in need of any help with english. In addition, she helped me with writing a letter to West Point on why I want to attend. She is great!!!
Mary Ellen McWhirter is an excellent tutor who helped both of my boys with English and Literature throughout high school. My boys loved working with Mary Ellen and I know for a fact that she was instrumental in helping both boys improve their writing so much so that they both received multiple Ivy League acceptances.
Ella spent months with my aunt, writing her memoir. She collected all of her emails, photos, and documents, did the research and carried her voice through the whole manuscript. For now, we're keeping it in the family, but it will be a family heirloom for generations to come.
Flexible in approach - I explained what I wanted and Joseph worked my wishes into his style of getting the child to do what was required. My son hates writing but Joseph did a great job of getting him to churn out some work.
Joseph is informative, professional and a subject matter expert on writing and editing. I look forward to utilizing his services in the future.

She edited my essays for a job application and helped so much. She found errors and better ways of saying things. I am so grateful!
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.
My primary focus of writing is the Economy, Real Estate and Equity Markets - and how they interconnect. I have closely followed the Equity Markets for thirty years - it seems far more than most not working on Wall Street - and have developed a great passion for writing on the above noted subject matter. I believe I present a very interesting viewpoint - though often contrarian in nature. I also have a great love of writing movie reviews. Similar to my economic pieces, I seem to find hidden movie gems that are often unrecognized by the main street media and film critics. Consequently, I feel my writing - if nothing else - provides great food for thought (as I rarely follow the status quo line of thinking).
