I tried Elite tutoring for my daughter and when she was first assessed, had gaps going back to 4th grade in math. Her grades were mediocre at best. Now she is finishing the year on the honor roll and currently in Elite tutorings Algebra program. She's making A's in all of her classes. Thanks!
Professional, on time. John is tutoring my 10 year old son in math, specifically, common core math. John is very patient which is what my son needs. I try to help him but I lose my patience which frustrates both of us. I am glad John is able to help and I hope my son will improve his math skills. John has tutored Christopher twice only so I hope this review is helpful. So far, I would recommend John.
Met with John once or twice a week over the course of several months during my GMAT preparation. I started out with a 13th percentile quantitative score. After working with him I was able score in the 73rd percentile on my first official GMAT, exceeded my initial goal by scoring ABOVE a 700. I had no formal quantitative training or experience prior to studying; the last math class I took was as a sophomore in high school (a decade ago). Each time I met with John, he was able to go beyond simply correcting my mistakes. He clearly explained the overarching reasoning, strategy and logic behind a certain problem. This is something the video explanations in GMAT curriculum do not do as thoroughly as John. If you're looking for someone to discuss GMAT concepts with in a clear and intelligent way, I highly recommend him. I also studied using curriculum like Target Test Prep, but John helped me tremendously by working through the problems I struggled with step by step and identifying any weak spots in my quant skills. He understands the GMAT and is able to identify the kinds of questions that likely would or would not appear on the exam. Finally, John served as a strong source of moral support throughout a challenging three months of study atop a full time job. When I wanted to try a new curriculum or ask him about tricky questions via email, he would always offer thoughtful feedback in response. His responses were especially helpful when I scored low on practice exams; John's feedback always helped me put things in perspective and helped me get back up and try again. He was very flexible and willing to work with my schedule and make time when needed, often on short notice. In short, I couldn't have done it without him!
Teacher Kim just started to teach my son algebra and geometry. She figured out his level by testing him and understood what they should work on. She is professional, nice as a person and very punctual. My son enjoys the lessons.
Every class I took with Dan Wekselgreene was comprehensive. Mr. Wekselgreene did an excellent job with his lesson plans and made sure all students understood the material. All his class work and home work was designed by him which makes it even better. His math lessons were clear, thoroughly, and fun. Also, he was responsive of his students. Always available to meet with them during, before, and after school. He is a teacher committed to his work and students. More than a math teacher he was a great mentor and advisor. Mr. Wekselgreene is a positive, patient, and compassionate man. I saw him face teenage negativity with a smile and hope. He is a great role model and a hardworking math teacher. I can say with confidence that anyone that comes across Mr. Wekselgreene will be lucky to have him as a teacher, mentor, and/or advisor.
Anish did a great job in helping me learn Math by properly giving me the instruction and practice I needed. I saw results soon after our tutoring sessions!
As a colleague of Shanna Miller, I was able to observe her creative and challenging lessons. Her passion for teaching and her caring is amazing! I would hire her to tutor my child in a minute!
I doubt you would get a good instructor like Mr Yevegny. I am a 40+ year old guy trying to relearn calculus. I soon realized I had not had a good grip of algebra and trigonometry. He has patiently worked with me to improve my ubsertanding if the subject in my own pace. Without his guidance I would not have taken these steps either. He is extremely knowledgeable and provides a great insight at every step. Slowly piquing your interest and taking you more and more into the subject. Of course his dedication to teaching and the subject is reflected in his punctuality and professionalism. I hope you too would start your math travel with him. Please do not hesitate to reach out to me for further reference. Thanks Anand
Pio is very good at catering the lesson to my needs - where I am at in the learning curve, and helping fill in any gaps in my knowledge of mathematics. He also helps create a plan and gives homework to accomplish my goal.
My daughter is quite pleased she has Namita as her tutor in geometry. Namita is very patient and takes her time in explaining homework assignments to my daughter. Her sessions helped her catch up with lessons she did not understand before which made her and I very happy. I will definitely recommend Namita to my friends.
My daughter Laura was struggling with algebra and geometry for a test. The tutor was fantastic. Much better value than other companies
Dan tutored my son in 10th grade in Algebra l. He was very reliable and Noah felt like he could relate to the way he learned. My daughter Abby was in 6 th grade and he was very helpful and engaged with her as well. I would highly recommend Dan if you child is struggling in math or science.
Dan is a great math tutor. He is patient and knowledgeable. He leads you to the solution but does not tell you the solution. He makes you figure it out by encouraging your own abilities to problem solve. I received tutoring for the CSET Math test and I was very impressed with Dan.
Back in 2011, Michael was recommended to us by my sister who enlisted his help to tutor her son who attended Head Royce High School. She said he was excellent and could tutor on any math or science subjects. Because I had a special needs child, I asked if he would allow me to sit in on a couple sessions with my son and he obliged. I was immediately taken by how meticulous, patient, and tuned in he was to what the student needed. With his help, our son did great in Algebra II and Geometry. We then sent our daughter to Michael for Biology, Algebra II, Geometry, and Honors Chemistry. Due to her fondness for math and hope to be competitive when applying for a computer science major at a good college, she felt she needed to accelerate her math curriculum. Therefore, over the summer between her sophomore and junior years at Piedmont High School, she was able to accelerate her math level by a year by taking Pre-Calculus at a community college while being guided by Michael's expert tutoring skills. He is now tutoring her in AP Calculus AB and Honors Physics. Michael has helped our daughter gain mastery in all these subjects and get the highest grades possible in these subjects. Both my children have found Michael funny, helpful, friendly, extremely smart, gentle, encouraging, gives relevant additional work if he finds they needed more help in a certain area, and a pleasure to work with. In addition, I have recommended Michael to nearly a dozen friends that have asked me if I know of a good tutor and they have all been very pleased. We feel very fortunate that someone with such incredible expertise in so many subject areas lives only 5 minutes from our home.

I was born and raised in a Spanish speaking country. I have lived and studied in the US. In my classes of full immersion, a conversational method is emphasized, as well as grammar explanations, only the necessary followed by the practice of the important points illustrated. I am a well-seasoned instructor with experience in prestigious universities, government agencies, and private academies such as Inlingua, AVL, University of Miami, Barry University, and DLI. I also offer Spanish and ESL private tutoring.
I am a good Spanish language tutor. I like help to people of all ages learn Spanish for good communication. Actually, it is necessary for work and for the future.
I teach guitar in a very simple and easy-to-learn way. No prior musical experience is needed. Rather than just sticking to the conventional methods of playing guitar, I use double capos and create my own chords.
Because we are small, we are able to offer a far more personalized approach than many large tutoring houses. Yet, we have the tools, training, and know-how of a large academic institution. For each student, we systematically work to identify problems, and then collaboratively create a plan to solve them using innovative curriculum design. Above all else, we are passionate about what we do! We care about genuine knowledge and understanding: we look beyond the numbers. We teach students to set their own goals, not merely jump through the hoops in front of them. We strongly believe that any student can succeed with the right combination of guidance, enthusiasm, and challenge.
I am a Hebrew teacher of 13 years, and I have dedicated my life to teaching. I am fluent in Hebrew and English, and I really enjoy teaching these languages.
I have been teaching Italian for more than ten years, both privately and at the college level. I love to give my students the empowering experience of learning a new language and to share with them my knowledge of my beloved country. My lessons focus both on grammar and culture, and students of all ages and different levels of language proficiency are welcome. For my teaching, I use both textbooks and current multimedia materials. I also provide translation services (English into Italian and some Italian into English as well) and interpretation services.
