Our 12th grade twin daughters are currently applying to colleges. Since Juliet was a high school principal last year, she understands the pressure of the college application process. She's been instrumental in teaching them the skills to write outstanding personal statements, apply for financial aid, and research the right universities. She also tutors them for AP Lit! We highly recommend her as a consultant and teacher!
I highly recommend Lynne as an English tutor. With her help I've significantly improved my communication and writing skills.
I took private classes from Fabian for a few months and really enjoyed his energy and wit. My schedule forced me to stop for a while but I believe I did make progress with him. He is intense when needed and funny otherwise! Being a native Colombian speaker really makes a difference. I did 90 minute classes in my office which allowed us to cover a lot of material at one session. You will like Fabian!
Miss Jenny is an exceptional teacher! We are very grateful to have found Miss Jenny to tutor our children; age 9 and 11 year old. Both of them have received tutoring from Miss Jenny since 3 years ago and their grades / test scores have improved tremendously right from the beginning. Miss Jenny always display enthusiasm for the subjects she teaches. She knows how to modify the teaching strategies according to the students' levels of comprehension. She is always so encouraging and motivating! Our children love her very much and they enjoy each of their tutoring sessions with Miss Jenny. We highly recommend Miss Jenny as a tutor / teacher to any children from Elementary to High School. Mike & Shirley Morris (Parents of Sebastian & Mia)
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.
Best ACT and SAT tutors around. PERIOD.
We love Ms. Konie! Our 9 year old son has Fragile X and struggles in both writing and math. We have been seeing Konie twice a week for the last six months. She continues to work tirelessly to keep her tutoring sessions interesting and engaging for our son. And we continue to see improvements in his ability to organize his thoughts and write cohesive paragraphs. We would recommend Konie to everyone!
Brandon is professional, on time and he is affordable! My daughter needs help with math so she can do well on the SAT and from the 1st lesson I knew he was the right tutor for her. He is patient and wants to make sure you understand how to solve the problems. If you’re looking for a tutor, look no further!
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.
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.
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!
Laura is a very dedicated tutor, showsbcompassion, encouragement and leads by example. Her over all teaching techniques make learning at any age fun and carefree. Thanks for the pletheria of knowledge.
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.
My son enjoys the days he gets to see Annette and is always very positive after their sessions. He seems to be progressing very well too. Very happy with his current progress.

I provide tutoring for elementary through college. I travel to the students' homes and provide tutoring in English, writing, math, art, and all elementary and middle school subjects. All of my students have passed all of their subjects with higher grades than expected. I am an easy person to work with and has a good sense of humor, and I make work fun.

I'm a recent engineering physics graduate looking to help others with their math and/or science skills. Throughout my college years, I was a teacher's assistant where I ran the homework sessions for my physics department. Recently, I successfully tutored someone in GRE mathematics in order to pass the GRE. My teaching method is to simplify complex concepts as much as possible for maximum comprehension and retention.

I want to help kids get through school ever since I needed tutoring when I was little. I decided that when I get older, I would become a tutor myself. I tutor grades K-8.
