Lisabeth helped me with my ACT writing skills and with the reading and science sections. We did 2 hour sessions. The quality of her work was great and she helped me a lot with the ACT and helped me calm down before my test. My experience with her was great and I will definitely contact her in the future.

Carl is an experienced tutor who provides more than just "homework help" or "test prep." He helped my son with valuable life lessons like organizing his notebook and assignments. He also instructed him to advocate for himself by encouraging him to speak to his teacher after school and to be more proactive about raising his hand in class. Carl was able to identify why my son was struggling, and it had nothing to do with actual understanding of the subject matter. Rather, it was inadequate teaching materials (handouts) and a less than optimal style of teaching. Once these problems were identified, we were able to come up with solutions that would help my son succeed in class. Most importantly, Carl is not just concerned with grades and test scores. His primary concern is that the student actually knows and understands the work. I would not hesitate to refer Carl to anyone needing a tutor for their child.

I am very impressed with Mike's knowledge of math and with his teaching skills. He explains things clearly and is very patient. My neighbor, Trish, was studying for her CBEST test and was having problems with the math. I referred her to Mike and now she has happily passed her CBEST exam. I would recommend him to anyone looking to improve their math skills.

Jeff helped prep my extremely dyslexic daughter prep for a standardized pass/fail test. I was very doubtful she would be able to pass -- but thanks to Jeff, she did! Thanks, Jeff!!!!

Called Daniel to help me at the last minute get ready for a statistics test. He met me the next morning and really helped me understand some concepts I was struggling with, especially word problems and figuring out which equations should be used. He was great to work with and really knows his stuff! Highly recommend him for math tutoring!!

Joyee Lin at Thinque Prep was the one who helped me get a perfect score on my ACT last year. Since then, he's guided me through a lot of decisions that I needed to make to help me be competitive for college. Certain decisions that I didn't even think would matter, he was able to forewarn me about. He has also been giving me really great ideas to help me with my essay. I'm so happy to have met him and strongly recommend him to anybody who needs help with test prep and college!

It was a simple job. Six grade math. Most tutors either gave us the runaround or just didn't call us back. Eric at elite made sure we were satisfied from the first free trial to the session before my daughters test. Very well done

I'm seventeen years old and took the new 2016 SAT test for the first time. My score was significantly lower than my GPA would indicate. I had several offers from tutors to assist in improving my SAT score. After reading the reviews and talking with several people, I choose to work with Sarah. I have had multiple sessions with her this summer. I highly recommend Sarah to be your tutor. She has a very pleasant personality and always makes sure you understand the current concept before moving on to another. She is very understanding of your schedule and will do whatever she can to work with you. I am ending my sessions only because to my pleasant surprise I have been offered an athletic scholarship after my senior year that will accept my current gpa and current SAT as completely satisfactory.

I had such a great experience. Before attending tutoring I got a C on my first math test, but after a couple sessions I got an A on every assignment including the midterm and final. I ended the semester with an A in my College Algebra class. She is such a great tutor and really helpful, I highly recommend!

Jenny is tutoring my son in math and biology. My son attends a college prep high school. She has been very flexible with the schedule and really wants him to "understand" the material. Although it has only been two sessions thus far my child is excited to learn and he understands the material. She arrives on time , confirms the day of and is very professional. So far we are happy with her service.

Rachel is a fantastic and brilliant math tutor. I hadn't taken a math class in about 23 years and wanted to pass my placement exam out of intermediate algebra to go directly into statistics. I knew I could recall a lot of the concepts if I had a good guide to help me quickly get an understanding. We met at various libraries for our sessions depending on where I was working on those days and times. She was patient, quickly understood without completely disregarding my seemingly far fetched goals, and helped me get through any challenging areas in a way that made it very clear. She has a way of making math "fun and sweet" like I had never previously realized it could be/is. I had 3 sessions with her (2 hrs, 3 hrs, 2 hrs) over the course of one week and passed my test by that Friday. When I started in my statistics class, I recommended her to anyone that was anticipating having any trouble with the class. If I have any trouble with math classes in the future, I know exactly who to call; she is the best! I'm so grateful to Rachel for her support and encouragement.

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.

After a couple less-than-stellar tutoring experiences via Thumbtack, I feel incredibly fortunate to have found Sol. My tutoring needs were somewhat unusual: after a 10-year hiatus, I needed to reacquaint myself with high school math in order to pass a placement test into a college-level calculus I course. Far easier said than done. Sol was up for the challenge, and knew just how to tackle it. After I had diligently dug out of my old textbooks from my parents' garage, Sol offered an anecdote about his dear friend and and former Cal-Tech college roommate when he was confronted with modern-day high school math. (Sol, you see, is not only an incredibly savvy tutoring professional, but also a retired JPL scientist--and a thoroughly interesting, thoughtful and personable man to boot.) As Sol's anecdote helped to illustrate, the scope of high school math has evolved in recent years, in ways even the former president of Hughes Aerospace, in a moment of complacency, would fail to appreciate. Pre-Calculus theses days focuses much more on the interpretation of graphs, and introduces concepts such as solving and plotting the inverse of linear and fractional equations, which wasn't even taught when I took the course circa 2000. At Sol's request, we set aside my old textbooks in favor of modern coursework that he provided. It was a few months later, at our last lesson, that I was able to truly appreciate how much Sol cares about his students. In his office, I happened to glance at a computer window where Sol had a folder with my name and files charting 'Goals', 'Progress' and 'Notes'. Sol's hard work and investment in my success paid off: on my placement test I scored a 98%--surpassing the score I had needed for calculus I and placing me into calculus II! As Sol predicted, the test had focused quite extensively on those more modern facets of pre-calculus that he had taught me. Now in calculus II, I feel utterly prepared, and only have Sol to thank. *Highly* recommended.

I would highly recommend Great Expectations College Prep for anyone with a child planning to attend college!! I've had two daughters go through her program. From SAT/ACT prep to the college application process. Jennifer and her staff gave my girls the confidence and knowledge to take ownership of the college process. Jen and her staff gave all the tools my girls needed to do their best on their tests and guide them through the schools that best met all their needs. The entire process was VERY easy, without stress and my girls happy. I'll be using them for daughter no. 3 in a few years.

Monique has been tutoring my daughter in French for almost a year now. She has been a godsend. Emily was close to failing French and now has improved in every aspect of her studies. Her quiz/test scores have gone up as well as her grade in French. Monique is very encouraging to my daughter in speaking and reading the language -- working with her on these aspects as well as studying for her quizzes and tests. Monique is very organized and knows what she would like to see for my daughter. She is always on time to our tutoring sessions and very flexible in scheduling time to see us. We will continue to call on Monique to tutor my daughter probably throughout her high school years. Thank you, Monique, for a job well done.

My son who is a high school senior needed someone to review his personal statement for his UC college applications. I requested a writing tutor and Victor Solis of Initia Test Prep responded within the hour! I reviewed his profile and his website and it seemed good. I was impressed of how Victor reviewed my son's essays in a short amount of time and gave important recommendations. He also answered any questions that I had about UC schools, admissions, etc. I highly recommend Victor Solis and Initia Test Prep.
