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!
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.
Good tutor! My child likes the way she works with him
My son is on the spectrum, and i thought it would be almost impossible to find someone who has the passion and understanding of how unique a kid with any LD could be. I am pleased to say that we couldn't of found a better tutor than Mrs. Erin. She's wonderful! I've observed and listened to some of her teaching/tutoring techniques. I really like how she fully explains and goes over tutoring assignments with my son. Her patience,dedication and ability to help not only my son but many other students amazes me! I can really look forward to a great outcome from his tutoring sessions. Im sure academic skills that are needed to be successful are going to be met! Thank you Club Z tutoring for having such amazing tutors!!! I would definitely recommend to any of my friends or to whom ever is looking for a tutor!
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!!!
Michael has been an invaluable English tutor for our son. He was able to artfully help our son with his college essay, guiding him through the writing process while making sure the essay was in our son's own words. Our son was accepted into his first choice college, partly based on this essay. Even after our son's freshman year of college, Michael continues to be available to tutor him. Michael has delved deeply into understanding our son's writing challenges, identifying specific steps to help him get on the right track. With his insight and gentle manor, Michael has connected well with our son, allowing him to be a very effective tutor. Michael is very responsive and flexible, providing sessions on Skype when our son needs them. Michael has proven to be a top-notch writing tutor for our son.
Heather has been fantastic and insightful - I'm so very happy I've hired Heather.
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.
Ms. Catherine Miller is an excellent private tutor for my 12yrs old daughter. Almost a year ago my daughter had difficulties with reading, writing and basic grammar. She was struggling and desperately need help from a professional and I seeked help. I found Ms. Katherine through Thumbtack, Inc. She has been working with my daughter for almost a year now. My daughter has improved tremendously in all area of academic skills due to Ms. Katherine devoted her time and effort to teach my daughter. My daughter and I have good experiences with Ms. Katherine. She's and awesome tutor. We love her.
My child improved her writing skills with Mrs.Phillips's help. We worked with Mrs.Phillips once a week after school, at the library, for a year. Mrs.Phillips used her red pen to help guide my child's work, something that our current teachers don't do. Mrs.Phillips is the best teacher. I've already recommended her to all our relatives and to you too.
It was a wonderful and awesome experience. Thank you very much for allowing me to meet Lisa Lee, more a friend that a teacher now.
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.
Anna was super supportive and helped my daughter excel in her reading. She's extremely organized and keeps you informed on everything that is going on with your child. Anna is well worth the investment.

In high school, I excelled in math and was always asked to tutor any student who either didn't understand or missed the assignment. This was as much a skill as my patience. I then went on to UCLA as an English major and received my BA. I ended my education with an MA in Counseling Psychology. I opened a practice but closed it once I had my kids. I have been a mother for 10 years now and an aide or volunteer at their school for the last six. I have decided to start tutoring elementary-aged kids in math and reading. That is where I have found the need to be of the most assistance and of the most help.
