We first tried in person tutoring and then tried online tutoring. We were very happy with both. We ended up sticking with online tutoring.
Best teacher ever. She helped me with my essays starting from scratch. She is quite patient and helped me a lot with my grammar and writing as well as with my understanding.
We’ve really enjoyed having Lauri work with our daughter in order to prep her for 3rd grade. She’s falling behind in common core math and Lauri is helping prep her to be where she needs to be. Her patience, professionalism and 30 years of knowledge should be able to obtain the results that we hope to see and are unable to provide on our own!
Great experience!! Very helpful on ways to improve my writing skills and to get a better outlook on what requirements teachers are looking for!!! It was very helpful to have someone be able to read over my work and show me ways to execute my essay.
Jenny has tutored my son in math and writing and has increased his confidence and advanced his skills in these areas, and has engaged with him on a level that has kept him interested and his attitude positive. She has helped us tremendously, I highly recommend her!!!
I highly recommend Juliet Hawk to anyone looking for a reading/writing tutor. She is working with two of my children, one to achieve the highest possible SAT results, and the other to improve reading comprehension and writing skills. Juliet is smart, genuine, and professional. She clearly loves her work and her enthusiasm is contagious.
Vanessa has been tutoring me for about two months, and I have never learned so much in such a short period. She has many tips and tricks to help me remember all of the rules of the Spanish language. She is a very kind and energetic person who is always willing to change her schedule to fit your own. I would strongly recommend Vanessa to anybody who needs help!
I was signed up to take a Kaplan course for GMAT prep and was talking to a co-worker about it when they told me their story. They took one of the same Kaplan courses I was signed up to take and didn't get their desired GMAT score. In their second attempt, they signed up for private tutoring with John Easter, one of Elite Home Tutoring tutors, and their GMAT score improved by over 100 points. After hearing this story, I called to cancel my Kaplan class & signed up with Elite Home Tutoring, with a special request to work with John. During my studies, I decided that I wanted to take the GRE instead of the GMAT. I explained this to my tutor John and to Eric at Elite Home Tutoring and the change was so simple. John is not only skilled in GMAT prep but GRE prep as well. So the only thing that would need to change were the materials. If you're looking for the best resources for test prep I highly recommend Elite Home Tutoring. I have no complaints!
Last year, we hired Kerry as a Math tutor for my step son who was in 6th grade and we were very happy with her services and his improvements. Kerry is a great tutor; she is experienced and patient and I highly recommend her.
I am a practicing attorney (part-time) interested in tutoring on the side. I have always had a passion for teaching, and I have been tutoring on and off since college. My undergrad degree is from Emory University, and my law degree is from University of San Diego. I am also certified to teach ESL. I am qualified to tutor in most subjects, so please get in touch!
Mary Ellen is one of the best English and writing tutors out there. She has been working with both of my sons, now ages 14 and 17, for several years, helping them develop their writing and literary analysis skills. My older son had problems organizing his thoughts and expressing his ideas clearly and succinctly, and Mary Ellen was instrumental in helping him develop these writing skills. She is adept at literary analysis, an area my younger son needed support in, and provided the extra help he needed to fully comprehend the difficult novels his class was reading. As importantly, Mary Ellen has an amazing ability to relate to her students and both my boys looked forward to working with her.
I was asked to remain at a local elementary school even after the teacher I was subbing for returned. With district H R approval, I was asked to take over that class while the teacher on extended leave was asked to do assessment testing for multiple grades upon her return..This was a huge compliment to me and my abilities to create "a sense of community" for the students who had multiple subs and loss of continuity and progress.
My son enjoys the days he gets to see Annette and is always very positive after their sessions. He seems to be progressing very well too. Very happy with his current progress.
I used Josh to for tutoring services for my child who is in 7th grade. After only a few sessions with Josh, she was more excited to learn and her grades increased in every subject. He has a fantastic personality and your child will learn to have fun while learning.
