Galina is helping my son learn Spanish and she is wonderful! She is prompt, warm, friendly, speaks several languages and so knows how to teach kids trying to learn another language. He looks forward to his lessons with Galina!
Grace is a patient, fun, and dedicated tutor. My two girls enjoy their lessons with Grace. Grace has made it fun for them to learn. They originally started with after-school Chinese lessons at a learning center. Because of the larger classroom size, my kids were not corrected and only learned to copy really well. Grace has corrected their stroke order and established a strong foundation in their reading and writing. We don't speak Mandarin at home so next she will work on their conversation. I am so glad and fortunate to have found Grace!
Bruno is a one on one tutor for pre-calculus for my junior in high school. His knowledge of the subject and his ability to share it with my daughter are exceptional. My daughter's class is struggling to learn the basics so Bruno is basically teaching my daughter the new concepts. She is able to understand it and complete all her homework after her time with Bruno. She also felt confident taking her first quiz after her tutoring sessions.
I have been taking lessons from Lillian for a few weeks now. I absolutely love her teaching style. Each 1-hour class is intense and afterwards I feel like I have gotten to the next level. But more importantly it spurs me on to want to learn more. She is patient and kind, but quick to see where you are making a mistake and drilling you on that area so you rapidly start doing it right and forget your wayward ways. For anyone who is interested in learning Mandarin I highly recommend Lillian as a tutor!
I have been taking Spanish lessons from Ms. Price. She is incredibly personable, knowledgeable and helpful. My Spanish skills have soared since I've started with her. Very friendly, she is an excellent teacher. She knows where weak points are and knows how to explain advanced subjects in a way which is very understandable. I am definitely going to continue lessons and I highly recommend Ms. Price to anyone who is seeking to improve their language skills.
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!
Angela does the best job of explaining concepts for AP/SAT if you are trying to learn something outside of school. We did our tutoring over the computer, but I actually found it more engaging than in person. For example, I was confused about cos (180degrees), because I hadn't learned about it in school yet. Angela's explanation also made 10x more sense than what my math teacher would say. Now I FINALLY understand how to find cos (180degrees)!
Tim was a great teacher for me! He was easy to talk to,understood my questions, and helped me improve my weak points. After working with him for a few months, I was able to understand a lot of the material provided in the SAT test and improve a lot on my practice test. Overall, Tim is a great teacher for learning how to improve your English , especially to prepare for SAT test.
I was in her speech class at Annandale High School. One of the best things about her is that she is organized. She is really motivating and encourages students to work to the best of their ability. She is very helpful and is a great communicator.
Prabh and I worked together for Calc 1 last year. Even though, he was taking Calculus BC in high school at the same time, which I believe is Calc 2 in college, he was very good at clarifying concepts and simplifying the processes. I saw my scores increase significantly, and my grade was significantly better by the end of the class. highly recommend him as a tutor!
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.
Chris is an excellent teacher. I had a few other teachers before her, and I can say Chris is the best. I think she is also a good phycologist, because she finds right approach to every student. Her lessons are very effective. My 7 years old daughter knew no English at all. She was ready to go to local school just after 3-4 lessons with Chris, her vocabulary increased from zero to a few hundreds of words. I feel dramatic improvement in my English pronunciation after taking lessons with Chris. My accent was so strong that even waiters in McDonalds did not understand me. Now I speak freely, even over the phone, and I do it intuitively without thinking about how do I do it.
My son has struggled in school since he was Kindergarten. We tried tutoring, EEG Neurofeedback and Interactive Metronome programs which were all supposed to help him with his focus and auditory processing issues. None of it really made a considerable difference and ended up being a waste of time and money. Fast forward to middle school and by 8th grade he was overstressed, depressed and failing courses despite his diligent efforts. I discovered Zion Brain Training and had my son tested. It was clear that he had focus, comprehension and auditory processing issues. We began the intensive 12 week program and within 7 weeks, we saw a dramatic change in his grades. At the beginning of the program, he was getting a D- in English and an F in History. By the end of the semester, he attained a C+ in English and a B- in History! Unfortunately, we had to stop the program prematurely due to personal scheduling conflicts, but I could only imagine how much more progress he would have made had he finished. When my son was tested for a post program evaluation, we couldn't believe how much he had improved in all areas, it was outstanding! If you are willing to put in the time and effort, then it is definitely a worthwhile program.
Dhivya has been teaching my daughter Math over 3 years. My daughter has been excelling in math due to Dhivya thoughtfull lesson plans & passion for teaching. She is flexible, kind & has ton of patience teaching kids.
My grades drastically improved as a result of studying with Susanna. I would give her more than 5 stars if I could, she's an amazing tutor. Susanna expertly tutored me in math starting with middle school algebra and continuing all the way through college calculus. She was a valuable partner for the majority of my math education. She is especially skilled at helping you master mathematical concepts by distilling complex ideas into easy to understand examples.
I highly recommend Mrs. Siegel for her patience and love for teaching. She used to be an elementary school teacher, so she knows how to make a student comfortable while they learn. I had an excellent experience as she has taught my two sons.
Kim Moya worked in my 5th grade classroom for several months while completing her teaching credential. She eagerly planned and implemented standards based lessons that incorporated hands-on activities and cooperative learning. Kim creatively added music and movement into many of her lessons, resulting in an exhilarating learning environment for students with diverse learning styles. Kim routinely went the "extra mile" to select, create, and organize supplemental materials to ensure that all students would have access to, and understanding of, the core curriculum. Her positive nature and patience set students at ease. Kim made it her mission to connect with both the students and their families, making all feel welcome and special. Kim's enthusiasm and passion for teaching remains a constant!
Judy was professional and always on time. She was pleasant to work with and her visual models were easy to understand. Judy helped my daughter learn what she needed to very quickly after we changed schools two weeks before finals! We highly recommend Judy.
She was a very experienced and creative Mandarin tutor. I was very bored of reading textbooks from my old Chinese schools. She created her own lessons that are way more fun and effective than textbooks.
Toby has helped our son in two subjects - Biology and AP Calc. She carefully assesses the student's needs, plans accordingly, is very patient and communicates well with the parents. She has an uncanny ability to establish rapport with the student. After each lesson, she sends a summary of what was taught, how the student did and areas where student needs focus. This is very valuable in keeping the student on track. We highly recommend her.
