If your looking for a tutor who not only gets results, but is also someone who generally cares for their students, than let me introduce you to Carl. My son is currently having difficulties in geometry. I had used thumbtack in the past for other projects and tried to see if I could find a math tutor on their site. Sure enough, we found Carl. In the short time that Carl has been working with my son, I have seen a marked improvement not only in my sons grades, but also in my sons work ethic. Carl has brought an enthusiasm and fresh approach to teaching my son math. Carl is flexible with regards to scheduling and if necessary, always spends more time with my son than just the allotted hour. He truly doesn’t want to leave until he’s sure my son understand whatever concept they happen to be going over. He really does go the extra mile for his students. I sincerely can’t recommend Carl’s services more. If there is a subject that you or someone you know needs help with, Carl is someone who will take the time and get you where you want to be.
We started using Mike's services when we switched elementary schools last September. Our son was just beginning Common Core and we wanted to make sure he could keep up with the rest of the class as he is one of the youngest kids. Mike's lessons on basic math skills--such as place value, equations, counting money and telling time--have been an invaluable part of our son's academic success. Mike also makes math fun and interesting for our son--so much so that he looks forward to Mike's visits. He is friendly and knowledgeable and easy to schedule. We want to note that we had tried another tutor last summer. In the 12 weeks we used her (multiple times each week), our son did not progress much at all. That was the main reason we looked around for another tutor. (That and the fact that our son was starting to hate math.) Instead of multiple weekly sessions, it's one weekly in-depth session. Mike's background, skills and experience as a tutor are clearly evident. We highly recommend him.
I have worked with Lois for the past three month, and she is just AMAZING. I have learned so much from her about public speaking, interview techniques and accent reduction. I am now much more confident about my English and presentation stills. She did an absolutely fantastic job on editing my resume and personal statements. Unlike online editing services (which just correct grammar and punctuation mistakes and typos), she spent time to know my vision and what I really wanted to express. The end results were impressive pieces that were personal and really made me stand out. Lois is intelligent, delightful and inspirational, and I truly enjoy her teaching. I especially love her homemade iced tea in this hot summer. I strongly recommend Lois for her lessons and will definitely continue working with her!
Daniel is the perfect tutor for Math. We are using him for AP Calc and Honors Pre-Calc/AB. I would highly recommend him to anyone looking for a Math tutor!!!! He has a lot of experience.
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!!
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.
Best tutor under the sun. Teaches student how to think about math so the student can use every lesson for future math efficiency. My son's grade went up 2 levels.
Nancy's is the best tutor I've ever had I have 3 boys and 1 girls and I have had over 15 different tutors over the years and by far she is the best I have had she is everything I am as far being stern but she brings the softness that the student needs to get the best out of them my daughter did not bond with the three tutors before Nancy but she really loves Mrs Nancy as she calls her and she look forward to her session every week. I hired her to teach my daughter Spanish who has never taken before and she already can write and speak Spanish in less than two months she was so good I ask if she does any other subjects and of course she does it all so now she tutors my daughter in math and her grade went from a C to an A she makes sure the student understands the topic before she moves on and she won't budge or go any further unless the student totally understands it. If your looking for top shelf tutor look no futher and for the price it's a win win for me and my daughter thanks for making my daughter experience a total success.
We chose Sara to tutor our daughter after meeting her and discussing her educational background and method of engaging with our daughter. On these points I found Sara well suited to tutor our daughter in Math studies as well as Engineering. After choosing an agreeable meeting schedule, Sara was always on time and prepared to work with each lesson plan, often working out the plan for the day via text so that both, Sara and our daughter could get the most out of the session time together. Sara was flexible with the schedule and able to change some of the meetings to coincide with a test. We have seen improvement with test scores which I am sure are a direct result of Sara ability and professionalism. We will continue to have Sara tutor our daughter in the coming school year and highly recommend her service to anyone looking for their child's educational challenges to improve.
Knows his stuff. Very precise and love the written homework after every lesson. Highly recommend.
Edward, was very helpful and patient. He's very flexible with hours and a good teacher. I was failing all of my math tests and after just four sessions with him my next test was an A+. I highly recommend Edward to anyone wether you are good or not good at math. It was a pleasure having him as a tutor.
All tutoring lessons my twins had with Romy and Abigail were really good. Both have done well on their exams since they began tutoring.
I didn't like Math and Science until my tutor made both subjects so easy to understand.
I find my lessons with Emily very useful. Thumbs up!
Andrew was a fantastic resource for me during my applications to graduate school. I did private tutoring with him for the GRE as well as sought tutoring from him for my personal statements for graduate school. He is intelligent, attentive, thorough in all of his work, and truly cares about the success of his students. He also makes learning fun and although studying for the GRE can be a mundane task, somehow made it more interesting for me. He followed up with me when I still needed more resources and follows up post-GRE to see how I am doing in my career. I highly recommend and endorse Andrew!
Better than Kumon. I went there for several years but now I've learned so much more at LA Math Tutoring. I actually really enjoy math now!
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 had the good fortune of finding James Nassir when I had 4 college math classes to take, including Statistics. Math is not my strong area, but with James excellent tutoring I made "A"s in all 4 classes! He is patient and explains everything clearly and directly and is flexible with tutoring times and locations! So glad to have had his help!
One on one learning had been more effective for me than anything else I would try. I was able to ask any questions at any time. It felt great to study in the comfort of my own home with a great tutor, instead of having to leave my house for a class. I have learned so many tricks and information from truePrep. My tutors lessons gave me a ton of information on the many problems faced on the SAT. This definitely increased my success on the SAT. I went from a 1300 on a practice SAT to an 1800! The lessons that my tutor and I went over were very helpful for me. They first included sample questions, and tricks into solving a certain problem step-by-step. Then, they included example questions for me to solve. If I got any example ones wrong, my tutor and I would go over them. He always made sure I understood why I got the answer wrong. The step-by-step tricks I learned were the most helpful for me
Tiffany is helping my daughter with math and writing and my daughter is really enjoying it so far!
I graduated from Swarthmore College, with a BA in math and music; I'm currently at the University of Pennsylvania. As a teaching assistant and tutor in college, I worked with a great variety of students and learning styles. I enjoy helping my students with their needs, as well as learning about their unique, often very fascinating, approaches to problems! I believe the best way to teach is to understand the students' minds and to guide them through each challenge in methods that they're most comfortable with. I have a passion for math, science, and learning in general. I look forward to sharing this passion with you! I'm also a performing pianist. I have had the fortune to work with the most inspiring teachers I could ever hope for; they shaped me into the musician and the person I am today. I'm not a professional music teacher, but I would love to share my passion for music with my students! I'm only looking to teach a small number of students, so that I can give them as much of my energy and attention as I can.
