Elite responded quickly and Curtis was sent out the next day to my home, well dressed and educated. Always was nervous about having a stranger in my home but Curtis was very trustworthy. I told the manager that Curtis was one of the most professional people I have met. English writing and Spanish tutoring has never been this easy

Laura provided valuable feedback and strategies to help me excel in academic writing . I feel confident in my writing and speaking skills because of Laura.
Fantastic Mandarin teacher. She is great with children of all ages. My kids have improved greatly in their reading, writing and speaking of Mandren. Most importantly they enjoy learning.
Anish is an excellent GRE tutor. He offered to tutor me one-on-one in order to accommodate for my busy school schedule. He is very good at explaining challenging reading comprehension questions in simple yet clear ways and always stop to make sure I understand everything. Also, he asks what I would like to focus on before each session to make sure he covers all aspects that I want to improve upon. I would highly recommend him to anyone who needs help with GRE.
I had Ms. Miller for U.S. History for a year, and she definitely made the class very exciting. Instead of just reading the textbook, we got to play interactive games like Jeopardy to learn the material and work together on group projects. She is a great teacher, and I knew that I could always go to her for help if I needed it. Ms. Miller is also extremely nice, and she truly does love teaching.
The gentleman I hired did a great job. He was very helpful. I would definitely use this service again and ask for him.
Kaitlin was my writing tutor for my college essays. She was very helpful throughout the process. The thing I liked most about working with Kaitlin was she gave me the freedom to devise my own ideas and writing tactics for the essays while she refined and perfected them. Kaitlin not only aided me in constructing well written essays, but also helped me become a better creative writer and learn advanced grammar rules that I could apply to my writing and standardized testing such as the SAT and ACT. She was very helpful and easy to work with.
A wonderful 5 stars. Kristen tutored my 7 year old son in reading and writing during the summer. I thought I would quote Kristen from a few of the updates she emailed us as I feel this aptly captures Kristen’s dedication, quality and professionalism as a tutor: “My hope is to help James feel authority and confidence when he chooses a book. The "quality" of the reading material is less important than the habit. No matter what he reads, he is becoming a better reader as long as he engages with the book… Learning to write is a procedural practice, meaning we wear it into our brains like a groove in a record. The improvement will happen over time. By the end of the week James could read his own writing back to me. At the beginning of the week, he couldn’t. Also he proposed his own writing assignment in lesson three. That self-challenging initiative is a good sign. That means he understands how to utilize tutoring, how to create an idea out of nothing, and how organize his thoughts around that idea. He dictated the piece and then I recited his dictation and assisted with spelling of larger words as he wrote. He clearly wanted to communicate his thoughts on soccer in writing…” My son ended the summer with a book about dinosaurs that he wrote and illustrated with Kristen facilitating the process and discovered a confidence and enthusiasm for reading and writing. We are grateful for Kristen’s help.
I, highly, recommend her for all of your math tutoring needs, but especially for statistics. In my case, I needed to complete a graduate level statistics class, and I hadn't attended a math class in over twenty years, much less a statistics course. Julia was very patient and supportive in assisting me to understand probabilities, hypothesis testing, linear and multiple regressions, and time series forecasting. The outcome of our tutoring sessions together resulted in me achieving an A in the class.
Ellie tutored my daughter Jessica for several months for the writing and reading sections of the SAT. Jessica learned grammar and vocabulary that she had not been taught in high school and she learned speed reading with greater comprehension. As a bonus, Jessica felt her newly learned writing skills carried over to better grades in High School classes and improved her college application essays. Jessica really appreciated the opportunity to work with Ellie to gain the confidence to perform well on the SAT. As a result, Jessica earned a very high score on the SAT and was accepted to the University of California in San Diego. I highly recommend Ellie as a tutor for the SAT.

Sofia has been working with my daughter since she was 3.5 years old. Now she is 8. My daughter loves working with her. Sofia is a wonderful teacher, very knowledgeable, supportive, super patient, competent, resourceful, result oriented. She has been helping my child with writing, reading, comprehension, math, Russian language. They've been making together beautiful art projects. I'm very pleased with her work and would highly recommend her to other parents.
The tutor really helped our daughter improve her reading and writing. She's in the 4th grade and is doing much better now. We recommend Club Z and will keep using them for the rest of the year.
Ms. Zepeda has been tutoring my homeschooled 4th grade son in Spanish. He is very bright but new to the language, and really needed a sharp, encouraging, supportive instructor to help him along. Raquel has been such a wonderful blessing. Warm, patient, intelligent, dependable, and professional--she's been fantastic for our child. He is learning a lot and is excited about the process, due in no small amount to her fun and savvy guidance. He really looks forward to lessons with her! I would highly recommend you see if she is a match for your family, as well.
Lisa taught me how to write in just a few months. Even though I was a college junior at the time, I never knew how to write until Lisa became my tutor. I am now a successful psychologist who has written several manuscripts. I will always be grateful to Lisa for what she taught me! Dr. Tabin

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.
