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.
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!
Our tutor, Danielle, has been great for working with my daughter. We needed someone who could tutor in math, but also assist in developing organizational skills.
She is a great amazing teacher . I enjoy her writing lessons a lot. Never regret to take lessons with her. She taught me different writing styles and loads of grammar. The lessons are fun too. Thank you May Chaisakulchai
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!!!
Good tutor! My child likes the way she works with him
I would like her to call me to,set up a appointment for tutoring..text....but preferably call me at 951.212.3781...I am having issues with the site. Thank you
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.
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.
Vanessa has been tutoring me for about two months, and I have never learned so much in such a short period. She has many tips and tricks to help me remember all of the rules of the Spanish language. She is a very kind and energetic person who is always willing to change her schedule to fit your own. I would strongly recommend Vanessa to anybody who needs help!
At the beginning of this year, our daughter was behind in both reading and math entering the 2nd grade. Then, when we signed up for tutoring with Mr. Klaif. He came highly recommended by a friend. After only a few weeks of tutoring, we saw measurable improvement. After investing more time, we are so happy to say that our daughter has improved so much that she is now performing a grade level above her actual grade! The knowledge and confidence in her abilities that she has gained through the program is amazing. I attribute her academic accomplishments largely to her participation in the Fundamentals program! I would highly recommend Mr. Klaif to any family that has a child struggling in any subject.
He so patient to teach a student and also he has method for studies fast.
My son was struggling with reading and reading comprehension and his grade had fallen to a low D. After just a few months working with Patt, and his grade was up to a high B. She didn't just help him improve his grade, but gave him the tools to be able to succeed on his own. Since then (now several years later) and he is still doing well in both areas as well as other subjects that are reading heavy.
To whom it may concern: Mrs. Briers has been tutoring both my 8 year daughter and 11 year old son for the last 2 years. She has been an exceptional help with the development of their academic growth. I've seen major improvement with their reading, math and just overall confidence she has the patience for kids and enjoys teaching them. Stern while still allowing the kids to voice their opinion and allowing them to have their say. If any parents are looking for someone who is not only a great teacher but person. I would highly recommend working with Mrs. Briers.
My daughter needed help with both reading and writing. A friend recommended her and we are so happy they did. Her calm and supportive demeanor made all the difference for my daughter. Jane is knowledgeable, friendly, patient, and clearly enjoys teaching. She really built my daughter's confidence in reading and writing. I recommend her to all my friends.
Jacob was an awesome help with the college essays and really made me expand and think outside of the box as a writer. I highly recommend Jacob to anyone seeking help with writing or any other basic subject. Jacob was an overall awesome guy and one of the better tutors I have had over the years.

My goal in tutoring is not to show off how much I know, but to use what I know to help learners get better at the subject they are asking for help on. I really seek excellence in my work, whatever it is, whether it is raking up leaves in the yard, or writing an academic paper. What is unique about tutoring is that excellence is measured by how well students are helped.
