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

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.

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.

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.

I met Scott at Mills College, where I am getting my MFA. I desperately needed help with my writing. My grades were slipping and I just couldn’t get a grip on the composition process. Scott and I met and went over a writing assignment I was working on. Wow, he is a deep person and knows so much!!! He is very detailed as well. I learned from Scott that writing is first about learning how to think critically. He makes criticism into an artform. He helped me develop and find my thesis and felt as we worked together over time that he opened my mind and helped me gain mastering the composition process. He really is talented. It’s no wonder he is a master of literature!!!

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.

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

Matthew worked with both my daughter and son tutoring. He spent several of my daughter's high school years helping with her AP classes in English and History, and assisted her through the beginning of her career at UC Berkeley. He worked on college applications, proof reading, and goal clarification with my son and came out with successful applications on a tight turn around time.

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.

About

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.
