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.
Best teacher ever. She helped me with my essays starting from scratch. She is quite patient and helped me a lot with my grammar and writing as well as with my understanding.
Jenny has tutored my son in math and writing and has increased his confidence and advanced his skills in these areas, and has engaged with him on a level that has kept him interested and his attitude positive. She has helped us tremendously, I highly recommend her!!!
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!
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.
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.
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!
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 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.
She is wonderful tutor and very professional.
Kaitlyn is easy to talk to and encouraging. She makes me beleive that I can acheive my future goals (like it is a real possibility). Kaitlyn is a great tutor and seems to have a plan and it actually makes sence to me when she explains what she is presenting.
Great experience!! Very helpful on ways to improve my writing skills and to get a better outlook on what requirements teachers are looking for!!! It was very helpful to have someone be able to read over my work and show me ways to execute my essay.
Kim was great . She explained everything to me and gave simple directions that I can understand and she was very patient when it came to her payment . I had a hard time trying to do the pay pal or anything that involves the computer or my phone even . She was great to work with . ! 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 .
Great service. Responsiveness and accommodations are among top traits of his quality of work. I look forward to having him on another project.

I am a retired teacher (young) with successful students who attend UCSD and Several Ivy League Universities. I am patient, goal focused, and love to make learning fun!
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.
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.
I am a current student at West Hills High School with a 4.0 GPA, and I have a true passion for helping kids learn.
I will be tutoring in all phases of usage of the English language. I am a professor at Southern California Seminary. I hold a theology and bible DMin degree. I am a retired navy chaplain.
