"We cannot say enough about Hawk Educational Solutions, Juliet was very professional and very patient. We were very impressed with how she was able to get through to our teenage son. He now feels less anxious about reading and math and we are confident he will be a better student. We find Juliet's technique very effective and we would highly recommend her services to anyone."

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!

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.

Mrs. Konie is fantastic!!! My six year old has ADHD and has struggled in preschool and kindergarten as a result. His reading and writing abilities were well below the level required for a student of his age. For three moths, he worked with Mrs. Konie, twice a week, to improve these critical skills. To my surprise, my son now reads and writes. Most importantly, he enjoys the challenges of both. Thank you, Mrs. Konie.

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!!!

I hired Gene last summer to help my son get a better grasp on math prior to going back to school. I was not disappointed at all. I had Gene come over twice a week for about 6 weeks or so. By the end my son was ready for 6th grade! The tutoring really helped my son's attitude and confidence going back to school. I asked my son recently if he would like Gene to prep him in July/Aug for 7th grade math and english. He actually said Yes! Gene must be something special if a kid is willing to give up a few of hours each week of his summer vacation for tutoring. Gene is real personable with kids and they definitely like learning from Him.

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!

She also sent me 2 resumes that I can choose from and they turned out great ! And it was done in the time frame that I needed .

Rebecca R. – San Diego State University (Business and Marketing) “I met MathWizJohn when I was lost in my Accounting class. I felt like there was no way I was going to be able to learn so much material and turn my grade around when I was already so behind. The class was moving quickly, and the problems seemed to be from another planet or book I hadn’t read!! The tutors here were able to slow things down to my pace, show me the material in a way I understood it, and were always encouraging. I was able to salvage a B in the class (clutch), and since then I have received help in Acct 202 and Fin 323. MWJ’s has helped me stay on top of my tough classes, and my grades have improved a lot!”

Sara did an amazing job helping me prep for my SAT! Before receiving her help my scores weren't very satisfactory, but after I was able to achieve my goal. I would definitely recommend Sara to anyone who is looking for a tutor. Not only does she produce good results but she also has a great attitude that helps contribute to a positive study environment.

About

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.

The people at Idea Tutors were great. They got me in touch with a tutor relatively fast. Other places around town gave me a 4 to 5 day waiting period which is pretty inconvenient while I juggle school and work. The tutor I met with was Tyler. He was friendly, knowledgable, and made sure I understood the material before moving on. We were working on calculus which was never my strongest subject but Tyler made all the difference. Overall I'm really satisfied and will definitely be using Idea Tutors again.

About

I have a way of making the subject matter fun and the learning relevant to the student. I show by examples that are interesting to the student how it would benefit them to understand the subject matter.

About

I am a college Math/Music major from Haverford College and I tutor from elementary to high school. Tutoring Subjects: • All basic Math, pre-Algebra, Algebra, Geometry, pre-Calculus and Calculus. For students who want to get ahead, I can help them learn concepts beyond what the classes teach. • Reading, grammar and writing fundamentals. • Biology, Chemistry and any history class from Greek history to AP US History. Music Lessons: • Beginning through advanced instruction in: ~Trumpet ~ Clarinet ~ French Horn • Music theory basics and ear training. • As a multi-instrumentalist, I can help your child find the instrument about which they are most passionate. I've had nearly a decade of experience playing clarinet, french horn and trumpet (as well as most other brass and woodwind instruments) in jazz bands and orchestras. I've coached students and been a private teacher for the past five years. I believe strongly in establishing a strong understanding in music theory but incorporate aspects that keep the student interested in their instrument. I additionally give lessons in film production, photo editing and computer/software use.

About

If you want a tutor who works hard to create a positive rapport to teach reading, phonemic awareness, comprehension, decoding, writing (expository and narrative) and math I am your tutor! I come to you, or you come to me. We can also select a library setting. M tutoring is FUN and hands on. My philosophy is positive reinforcement. We work hard, but in a positive interactive manner that does not scream "BORING".

About

I am tutoring basic math. I teach adding, subtracting, multiplying and dividing fractions, decimals and percents. I teach formulas for geometry and pre-algebra. I also teach ratios and averages.
