Lisa-Beth is a great tutor and is teaching me business English and grammar lessons. Our first meeting was easy to schedule and she made me feel comfortable. Would highly recommend her to anyone wishing to learn quickly and correctly.

My daughter has taken a few lessons with Carl, and she is very happy with his style of teaching. I hired Carl with the need to prepare my daughter for the SAT exam. Carl was extremely flexible in scheduling the tutoring sessions around my daughter’s schedule. I have enjoyed listening to Carl tutor my daughter greatly. He has a great sense of humor, and has a special method in teaching, which can just about help anyone in finding the answer and/or struggles that one is having in learning the English language properly. Each time that Carl arrives for the sessions, he is prepared and ready to tutor without wasting any time. Carl is a very knowledgeable and an experienced tutor, and I believe he has the best method in preparing for the SAT. As a bonus, he is very nice, and reasonably priced considering how much he is helping my daughter to prepare for her first life-changing exam. I would definitely use his services again, and would highly recommend him to anyone.

Lois has a great ability to adapt to the student's needs. I love her teaching methods, developed by her based in all her years of experience teaching english. I've experienced a really fast improvement with pronunciation, which was my number one concern. I've really enjoyed her classes and I totally recommend her!

I cannot say enough about Thinque Prep and Joyee Lin. He is dedicated to his students success and does a very thorough job of preparing them for the ACT or SAT test. My son, Zack, who is very bright but requires a lot of patience worked with Joyee over the summer and brought his composite ACT score up from 30 to 33. His math score increased a full 4 pts. and he scored a 35 in English. Thinque Prep has other services related to tutoring and college application preparation. Zack will be working with Joyee on his college application essays. Joyee is in California and we are in Texas but this was never an issue as the sessions are done via video chat. The office manager Jen was great to work with and the appointment process was easy to navigate. I found the rates to be very competitive for like services. If there was a way to give extra stars I would!!

Awesome teacher😀. We started out with lessons for my small children Elsa made learning so much fun for them with games and post-it's throughout the house. My children learned quickly and we fluent before they took Spanish in school. So impressed with Elsa I later hired Elsa to teach my husband and I Spanish. Elsa's approach helped us also learn quickly. We love her she is kind, patient and so much fun. I would recommend her to anyone wanting to learn Spanish. Wally P

Daniel provided coaching on a 6,000 word essay. Daniel was great. He provided help with grammar, sentence structure, and flow of the essay. He did not "correct" the essay, he was a coach who gave guidance and shared lessons on how to think about the work that will be helpful in the future.

Its difficult for me to put into words this review for Club Z, without sounding like a paid advertisement for the company. But the truth of the matter is: Our experience with Club Z's service from the first time we met Mary Beth has been extraordinary. Her ability to key in on the areas of challenge with our daughter was the first thing I noticed. Which was evident for me that this was more than just getting business. She was preparing from day one a strategic plan to get results. And, I can live with that. The tutor she assigned to our 5th grader was absolutely what we needed. Lisa came to our home, sat down at the table with our daughter, coached her out of her shell, and into communications that often take my daughter hours of getting familiar, to do. I once ease dropped in on the lessons Lisa was working with her on, and the engagement was great. our daughter was asking questions, and providing answers, and the cherry on top was hearing the tutor say, Okay, lets go back over it to make sure you understand it. That is more than teaching in my opinion. That was training in motion. And, I am extremely pleased with the results. I, highly recommend Club Z to parents, looking for professional and friendly service all the way through the process. Thank you Mary Beth, and Lisa for all that you've done for us.

I'm Chinese. My 12 year old twin-son and I moved here in Aug 2015. My sons just started their English learning before we came here. My friend helped me finding a English tutor, her name is Barbara. She is very nice,experienced, patient and professional beyond my expectations. She even went to my sons' school talked with their teacher to understand their situation and Taylor made their lessons. What a nice and responsible teache she is! This will never happen in my country. She is so great and I want to show my appreciation to her here! How lucky we are to find such excellent teacher. My sons's English are improved obviously and the score in last semester proofed her effort! We will continuely work with her in the coming year for sure.

Marguerite Kaiser is a great piano teacher for both children and adults. She understands the dynamics of a person's learning process and caters her teaching to keep them engaged. During the lessons, she incorporates some history about past musicians and help you develop a love for music. She is an expert in music and cordially teaches it with patience. Mrs. Kaiser uses other mediums such as drumming, singing, etc. to expand your scope of music. I would recommend Marguerite Kaiser for individuals new to music or those who wants to sharpen their skills.

We hired Ed to provide Algebra II tutoring for our son Tim at the beginning of the 2015 school year. I can say that after a year working with Ed, Tim’s Algebra skills have improved significantly, and he has found a great friend and mentor in Ed. We will definitely be hiring Ed again this year to tutor our other sons! Overall, Ed is calm, good natured, knows how to handle teenagers, and is very knowledgeable in the field of mathematics. The best part is that Ed is a UCLA grad – LOVE that! I highly recommend him.

I am very flexible and have respect to schedules. I'm also very interested in being the person who guides you to improve your learning.
