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 was hired to teach Hebrew to my daughter who is in Kindergarten as well as to teach my husband and I Hebrew. Carl is a very dedicated professional that has a true gift at teaching. He makes the lessons fun and teaches in a way that keeps the learner engaged the entire lesson and always excited about learning more. This would not normally be an easy task while teaching a 5 year old, however Carl makes it look easy. Our daughter looks forward to Carls's weekly visits, as do we. Carl even went out of his way to find a special Hebrew educational book for my husband (who already speaks pretty decent Hebrew- but wanted to learn more). I would highly recommend Carl for any tutoring, writing, or editing services you may need.

Lois is a very professional and considerate tutor. She is helping my writing skill and accent. In addition, she has a producer background and share her knowledge and expertise. She teaches me the entertainment business cultures and how to be a strong female producer in US. She is not just an English teacher. She loves to motivate and inspire her students. I highly recommend her.

I have nothing but positive things to say about my experience with Joyee and his team. We've been working with them for quite a while and they've helped us with math tutoring, test preparation, and now going into our senior year, they're helping us prepare for college applications. More specifically, my son's score on the ACT jumped 6 points after 2 months of working with Joyee and Robert. I can't recommend them enough!

I had Bri as a math tutor for the ACT. She was funny, professional, and very knowledgeable. I wanted to get my score up 4 points, and with her help, I was able to on practice tests. I would highly recommend this service, especially Bri, if you're looking for any kind of tutoring--standardized test or school subject. Thank you, Bri!

I am really pleased so far with Jeffrey's tutoring with my 11th grade daughter. The specific one-on-one focused methods he uses seems to not only get to the targeted areas she is needing help with, but strengthen her confidence in the whole daunting subject of standardized test-taking.

Good for writing tutoring, I’m an engineer and couldn’t help my son (14) too well with the academic writing so Chris has been really helpful there. He explained it in terms of ‘structure,’ which let me not only understand what was going on, it let me understand it in a way that I could teach. There are a handful of other stories I could tell about how CML brings his material (ha, ‘materials science’!) to life — never again will I think a metaphor is meaningless! — but it makes more sense to just get a lesson with him.

StudyPage is an invaluable tool if you have a student with any kind of learning difficulties. Esmerelda has helped my son with homework organization, writing, math and all the tools he needed to become a successful student. I can not recommend StudyPage enough.

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.

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.

We have used Skills for Success with our son for quite some time now. Working with teenage boys can be difficult, but Carleen goes out of her way to find out what our son is interested in and then implements those areas into her work with him! We have seen huge improvement in his reading & comprehension, writing and spelling!!

Victor is a genuine, intelligent, creative person, and an excellent tutor. I refer him with great confidence. Victor has an admirable ability to relate to different types of personalities and learning styles. He not only adapts his teaching to our daughters' unique situations, but seems excited by the challenge. Our children attend different high schools, and have their own unique talents and learning styles and challenges. One attends an academically rigorous private high school, while the other attends an academically challenging, local public school. Victor has tutored them both. Whether it's SAT tutoring or weekly math and bio, or a brush-up before finals, Victor is there. He is prompt, professional, highly competent and above all, energized by teaching. He asks questions. He does not spoon feed; rather, he takes the time to help our daughters discover the answers for themselves. My 17 year old earned a great SAT score, and a substantial 4-year scholarship to the university of her choice. She applied early-action to three schools, and gained admittance to them all. We credit Victor for helping her realize this dream. I now look forward to what my younger daughter will achieve, with his help, as he not only teaches her in the way she needs to be taught, but he cares. She knows this. He establishes a genuine relationship with his students; he helps them gain confidence, and trust themselves. I honestly cannot say enough about Victor, and the impact he has made on our family. He takes the worry and the (dare I say) struggle out of high school, creating space for my husband and I to be more supportive and less "annoying" to our children. It is a relief and a comfort to know such an intelligent, good person has our daughters' and therefore our own backs. Both of our girls' confidence and academic achievement have soared under Victor's tutelage.

She taught my daughter for a year. She improved my daughter's reading and writing skills. Unfortunately, we moved out another place so my daughter couldn't study with her further. But she is really kind and warm so we are keeping touch with her. She is an awesome teacher!!!

I first reached out to Spencer to prep me for a job interview. This involved updating my cover letter and preparing/rehearsing my interview questions and answers. With Spencer’s tutoring, I felt much more confident and ready for the interview. While going through the final stages of the interview process, the hiring company tasked me to prepare a custom presentation. Spencer’s thoughtful questions, creativity and attentiveness helped me nail this final task and I landed the job! I still work with Spencer on any speeches and business presentations I have to give. He takes the time to understand my point of view on the subject in order to help craft the right material and tone. Throughout each project, Spencer is always helping me improve my articulation and vocabulary. This has made a tremendous difference in both my professional and personal life! Overall, Spencer is an excellent teacher and public speaker.
