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.
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.
We highly recommend Lois For tutoring. She is well known in Honolulu and has years of experience. She tutored our granddaughter when she needed to take the entrance exams into private schools. Lois has great knowledge of children and skill in getting them to do their work. Her lessons were challenging and fun. Our grandaughter could hardly wait to return to her next session. We wish Lois was here to tutor our grandaughter in her college SATS. Carol Lehman
Joyee Lin of Thinque has been nothing short of amazing. Professional with results to show. My daughter started working with Joyee a couple of months ago. Within six lessons, my daughter's composite ACT score went from a 28 prior to working with Joyee to a 32. Amazingly, her science score went from a 25 to a 32. Those numbers are the end result of Joyee's professional approach to teaching. During the lesson, Joyee utilizes a number of methods to present the material. It must be said that my daughter took his instruction seriously and worked hard on the material which was provided to her. The result was a good example of team work in which my daughter could receive, in addition to immediate instruction, quick review and understanding after working through the material. Joyee makes it easy to work around a busy lifestyle as he schedules and responds to correspondence promptly. We can't offer him enough praise. Joyee is offering an amazing service and we were so glad to have been referred to him.
Excellent tutor! Daniel tutored my 13 year old son in Physics. My son went from being completely lost to getting an A in the class. Very professional, explains topics clearly, connects well with student. My son loved the Skype/online white board method of teaching. No need to go anywhere or sit in traffic. Daniel was flexible with setting up lessons and even made time when urgently needed, like before a test. My son had a great experience and can't wait to learn with Daniel again when he gets to HS physics.
We chose Elite and were so happy we did! My son struggled in math and he needed more support than the school offered. College prep is tough, I couldn't even help him! Haha Well, we called Elite and Eric matched him up with Tony. We liked that Tony came to our house for a free session before I had to commit to ordering sessions. I always wondered how that worked so you know your kid will for sure like the tutor and want to learn! We're very pleased, thanks again.
Jeffrey is a very focused teacher and has a relaxed and encouraging demeanor which is allowing our daughter to learn a strategy for taking these entrance exams. Not sure what the outcome will be but so far she has improved her test taking skills at school. Thanks Jeffrey!
Where to start... We first used Addy with our daughter who is highly motivated and quite smart but was in a very advanced math class and needed additional help. Addy was extremely helpful and my daughter received the highest ranking in her IB math classes. Two years passed and my son was failing Algebra II. We called Addy and she came to the rescue. He went from potentially going to summer school for failing grades to receiving a B- first semester. He feels he is back on track and can get an A. This is all because of Addy's tutoring!!!
We had our daughter meet the tutor at the local library four times a week after school for six weeks. She went from a low C to a solid A. What more can we ask for?
Very knowledgeable. Will go back for more lessons.
I took piano as a child, but curtailed my lessons because my teacher and I were a poor fit. I realized there was something missing in my life when I moved out here, and after looking over a dozen or so profiles online, I decided to move in on Chris. His lessons are incredibly different than the music lessons I had growing up and so much better. Give him a try!
I have struggled in math for so many years, in middle school, high school,and until this year college but anyways this year we started working with Rachel and I got an A in math. This is amazing, I tought I would never be good in math but she proved me im wrong. She is very patient, helpful, she is very organized and she will show you how hard and complicated problems turn out simple and easy. I totally recommend her!
Sarah helped my son to pass his Algebra M03 class at Moorpark College after failing the first time. My son struggled with math in high school and generally has an aversion to the subject. We hired Sarah and he not only passed but earned a B grade! Sarah is very kind and considerate and cares about her students. We will be using her again.
Cindy and everyone at Rainbow tutoring are some of the kindest individuals I have met. The wisdom Cindy bestowed on me while helping me through my college application process will be with my forever and I am so grateful. Cindy helped me figure out what I wanted in my college experience and gave me the tools to get myself there. She introduced schools that I wouldn't have seen myself at and helped me get myself to Santa Clara University. She is beyond inspirational and such an empowering woman that is a role model to any and all of her clients. Cindy and her team are smart, dedicated, and reliable- they are always able to help and are great mentors to have before going off out of high school and into a college or real life environment. Cindy especially is very clear and really walks you through the steps to understanding in both Math, Writing, and the SAT Prep. I am so thankful to have met and able to work with you guys !
Fouzia makes every lesson a new adventure for our son. Her approach is creative and engaging and keeps him on his toes. We could not ask for a better French teacher.
Pierre is patient, and a very good teacher! Looking forward to my next lesson!
Victor Solis is a crucial part of our daughters high school curriculum. He is able to help her with weekly tutoring sessions, but also is available through electronic devises as needed. A very valuable service, as high school can be so unpredictable.
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.
a great experience for someone looking to improve their english proficiency for college. i was referred by a friend to this school, and she told me this is what they specialize in. but they also great for working professionals hoping to improve their English too. their teachers and staff are what makes this school great.
Johanna is a very good teacher! She is very open minded and will help you the way you think is the right way for you to learn. Johanna was a great help after lesson as well, when she answerd questions that I had, and sent me links to continue practicing at home. Thank you again Johanna! Daniel
I found Ms. Harris after a long search for a tutor for graduate school. She was perfect from the start - very professional, on time, had a lot of experience and great references. I am recommending her to everyone I know!
