Carl was hired to teach Hebrew to my daughter who is in Kindergarten as well as to teach my husband and I Hebrew. Carl is a very dedicated professional that has a true gift at teaching. He makes the lessons fun and teaches in a way that keeps the learner engaged the entire lesson and always excited about learning more. This would not normally be an easy task while teaching a 5 year old, however Carl makes it look easy. Our daughter looks forward to Carls's weekly visits, as do we. Carl even went out of his way to find a special Hebrew educational book for my husband (who already speaks pretty decent Hebrew- but wanted to learn more). I would highly recommend Carl for any tutoring, writing, or editing services you may need.
Lois is a very professional and considerate tutor. She is helping my writing skill and accent. In addition, she has a producer background and share her knowledge and expertise. She teaches me the entertainment business cultures and how to be a strong female producer in US. She is not just an English teacher. She loves to motivate and inspire her students. I highly recommend her.
I have nothing but positive things to say about my experience with Joyee and his team. We've been working with them for quite a while and they've helped us with math tutoring, test preparation, and now going into our senior year, they're helping us prepare for college applications. More specifically, my son's score on the ACT jumped 6 points after 2 months of working with Joyee and Robert. I can't recommend them enough!
I had Bri as a math tutor for the ACT. She was funny, professional, and very knowledgeable. I wanted to get my score up 4 points, and with her help, I was able to on practice tests. I would highly recommend this service, especially Bri, if you're looking for any kind of tutoring--standardized test or school subject. Thank you, Bri!
Our tutor, Danielle, has been great for working with my daughter. We needed someone who could tutor in math, but also assist in developing organizational skills.
She is a great amazing teacher . I enjoy her writing lessons a lot. Never regret to take lessons with her. She taught me different writing styles and loads of grammar. The lessons are fun too. Thank you May Chaisakulchai
Good tutor! My child likes the way she works with him
Cindy is an absolute visionary. I am a senior in high school, and I met Cindy a few months before I began this school year. My strengths academically are mainly in reading, writing, social studies, and philosophy, but Cindy has enhanced my knowledge and appreciation for mathematics, science, and my capabilities in problem solving as a whole. When I first met Cindy, I was in desperate need of a math tutor, but what I received was more than I could have ever imagined. Aside from her outstanding mathematical capabilities, Cindy has served as my mentor, ultimate problem solver, entrepreneurial guru, and ultimate inspiration throughout my college prep and application process. As a fellow performer, and actress, Cindy also has helped me explore my passion for theatre, and expand it to become a flourishing intrigue with anthropology, psychology, and motivational speaking. She is literally the reason that I am now travelling as a motivational speaker/ Body Positive facilitator to youth, ranging from middle school to high school. In offering her invaluable time, ambitious mindset, and incredibly compassionate demeanor, she has allowed me to find my true passions, and encourage others to do the same. Furthermore, Cindy is beyond this world amazing. Whether to call her an angel, an oracle, a goddess, a reincarnated Albert Einstein, or any other form of awe, I am not worthy to concretely say. However, I can attest that Cindy has absolutely changed my vision for myself and the world around me, my societal views and aspirations, as well as having enhanced my mathematical and test taking capabilities. Truly, Cindy is the most wonderful, kind, creative, talented, and intelligent essence, one could ever hope to meet or aspire to become.
Rowena is fantastic! From the moment I met her, she was so easy to talk to and work with. She is compassionate, knowledgeable, professional, thorough and more than affordable! She agreed to meet me in person because I didn't have a resume for her to edit. She also provides interviewing preparation and tutoring! I recommend her to anyone who is looking for this type of service.
Remy was indispensably helpful in editing my papers. Her knowledge of good writing techniques and command of language helped transform my work to new levels. She provides great tips for how to strengthen your argument and how to add the strongest types of evidence and analysis to your work. I've never received such useful, personalized advice in or out of school. I will reach out in a heartbeat to her for my next project, and I would definitely recommend her!
Michael has been an invaluable English tutor for our son. He was able to artfully help our son with his college essay, guiding him through the writing process while making sure the essay was in our son's own words. Our son was accepted into his first choice college, partly based on this essay. Even after our son's freshman year of college, Michael continues to be available to tutor him. Michael has delved deeply into understanding our son's writing challenges, identifying specific steps to help him get on the right track. With his insight and gentle manor, Michael has connected well with our son, allowing him to be a very effective tutor. Michael is very responsive and flexible, providing sessions on Skype when our son needs them. Michael has proven to be a top-notch writing tutor for our son.
Jen is one of a kind! I have had over four different tutors work with my kids and not one of them could match up to the positivity, intellect, and absolute care Jen brings to my kids. She has always come prepared with a lesson already in mind and knows what's due for my kids homework and what math concepts she needs to review for them to fully understand. She even works with them on their writing and reading comprehension and continues to strive to be the best role model that I could have asked for. I would 100% recommend Jen to anyone looking for a strong tutor and she is versatile in many subjects and knows exactly how to adhere to your kids needs.
Heather has been fantastic and insightful - I'm so very happy I've hired Heather.
My child improved her writing skills with Mrs.Phillips's help. We worked with Mrs.Phillips once a week after school, at the library, for a year. Mrs.Phillips used her red pen to help guide my child's work, something that our current teachers don't do. Mrs.Phillips is the best teacher. I've already recommended her to all our relatives and to you too.
My 5th grader needed help with writing and reading comprehension. Mrs. Nemon impressed me with her ability to engage my daughter with her positive and encouraging attitude. She was also able to identify within the first meeting what aspects needed attention and which skills required more development. My daughter received an A+ on a writing assignment soon after starting her tutoring sessions. She couldn't wait to show her grade to Mrs. Nemon!
Jacob was an awesome help with the college essays and really made me expand and think outside of the box as a writer. I highly recommend Jacob to anyone seeking help with writing or any other basic subject. Jacob was an overall awesome guy and one of the better tutors I have had over the years.
It was a wonderful and awesome experience. Thank you very much for allowing me to meet Lisa Lee, more a friend that a teacher now.
