I highly recommend Juliet Hawk to anyone looking for a reading/writing tutor. She is working with two of my children, one to achieve the highest possible SAT results, and the other to improve reading comprehension and writing skills. Juliet is smart, genuine, and professional. She clearly loves her work and her enthusiasm is contagious.

These are the best Tutors for the SAT you can possibly find. I hire them to tutor my daughter and the tutor was able to get my daughter to move up another 300 points in a very short period of time.

I found Club Z! In-Home Tutoring Services of San Diego Coast to be a very reliable and allows for quick access to quality tutors. The tutors are knowledgeable, friendly and helpful. Desiree, the Area Director, is a great resource as well when I have looked for guidance on questions with students, as I am a Special Education Teacher, and for my own children. I highly recommend Desiree and her tutors as a teacher and a parent!

Eric has been tutoring my daughter, for the last several weeks, as she prepares to study abroad in Argentina. He is a great teacher, verythrorough and he genuinely enjoys what he does. She has definitely grasped a better understanding of Spanish, specifically, the dialect of Argentina. She has enjoyed their weekly sessions and has become much more confident in her communicating abilities. Highly recommended!

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!

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!!!

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!

Marie has tutored my boys once a week for the past several months. She has shown patience in teaching proper grammar, while at the same time, has stretched their skill and ability . Although my sons (4th and 6th grade) receive high marks in school in language arts and writing, my wife and I found ourselves often disappointed with the final drafts of their writing assignments. Their basic grammar and writing skills were not being developed in the traditional classroom (then again, quite difficult for teachers to create individual lessons with class sizes of 25+ students). This past summer we sought out help on Thumbtack and fortunately found Marie Woodruff. Marie is both supportive and demanding. Each session Marie challenges both sons and both leave each session feeling more confident. My wife and I are very satisfied as Marie teaches to an individual's skill level and not an arbitrary grade/lesson level. If your son's/daughter's writing assignments are not meeting your expectations, give Marie a call.

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.

About

Hello! My name is Denise Litt. I am a high school biology, physics, and earth science teacher looking to supplement my income with tutoring. I teach at Serra High School in San Diego. Feel free to look me up on the Serra High School website. I have been teaching for six years. I have taught physics at Torrey Pines High School and La Costa High School to college-bound juniors and seniors, and now, I am teaching physics and biology to freshmen and sophomores. I am available to tutor in the afternoon or evenings and some weekends. The fee is comparable to the tutor placement companies you will find on local services sites, but I am more flexible, and you will communicate directly with me. I can provide references, or you can call my current employer. Please email to discuss how I can help your children be successful in school! Thanks.
