I am not one to leave a ton of reviews for services and I have had mixed success with Thumbtack, but I think this man is an unsung hero!!! My daughter has struggled in math for years, since grammar school, and is now in 8th grade. She continued to struggle with a different tutor. We have been working once a week with Mr. Matlak now for about six weeks and the difference is simply amazing. She just got her first "A" in a math quiz since grammar school and we both nearly cried in relief and joy. The two most important things about him - he KNOWS the concepts cold (some tutors DON'T), and he is PATIENT. I came to the conclusion that my daughter simply would not get the pace of learning or individualized attention in the public school setting that she needs for this particular topic. She is doing well in other topics but math is her Achilles heel. I didn't have the patience (or the knowledge) to help much and it became a source of frustration for both of us. It is such a RELIEF to see her more confident and not stressed about math now!! I can't say enough good things about Mr. Matlak. He promptly answered my inquiries, quickly provided two references who gave glowing reviews, and we are so happy to have him. We didn't want to go the Sylvan or other company routes - Mr. Matlak comes to your home, sits down with your student, and gets to work. I can't believe I did not invest in my child's future earlier in her school career - it is well worth it. We do an hour a week and it has made a VAST difference. I have no relation to Mr. Matlak (other than to sing his praises) and I would be happy to provide anyone interested with additional comments. Update April 22, 2015: Our daughter continues to work with Ray weekly and is now pulling a "B" average, coming up from the "D" average she was pulling when we started. Not struggling and spending so much time on math has allowed her to focus on her other classes and encouraged her to bring her other grades up as well as she prepares to enter high school. We couldn't be more pleased to see our daughter's confidence growing with respect to math. We'll keep him through COLLEGE if he's willing!! All kidding aside, Ray is well worth the investment, even if your budget calls for less frequent tutoring sessions.

My kids and I love Ms. Lena with Learn Exponentially! I homeschool my 5 children and having Ms. Lena come to my home to tutor them 1 on 1 on whatever I need her to, is a life saver! She is patient, organized, and extremely knowledgeable. I don't know what I would do without her! I have recommended her and Learn Exponentially to all of my mom friends! S.W.

My daughter has very much enjoyed learning from Arliss. She is kind and supportive and my daughter has learned a lot about taking the SAT and is now studying with Arliss to take the ACT. We are awaiting her SAT score to see how much she improved.

They were flexible to my needs and strived to provide me with the best service. They actually taught me how to do the work instead of other tutors who basically do the work for you. Would highly reccomend brought my grade from an F to a B in four weeks

Deryk tutored my high school senior daughter in preparation for the SAT exam. She raised her score by 600 points which really helped out with scholarships and grants for college! Thank you so much! B. Nichols

About

I tutor mostly high school and college students in mathematics, elementary Spanish, and introductory chemistry.

About

I am a 16-year veteran elementary school teacher. I understand the frustration a child feels when a concept is difficult for him/her to achieve. With patience and hands-on practice, many concepts become very accessible to the child. I love watching that light bulb go on when they understand.

I don't consider what I do as especially better than others who render the same service(s). I've been tutoring for over 30 years. I love being able to help clients reach a level of understanding of the subject matter. I love working one-on-one and love helping the best I can. I love working with students/adults!

People think that learning is best done straight from a textbook. I don't think that. Although private tutoring is meant to teach from a textbook, I think that there should be more. My curriculum consists of two separate categories, from which subcategories are made. We go through literature, grammar, writing, not through a textbook (although used as a reference) but rather through handpicked books from a list we create on the first day of service. From there, a customized plan is made to best fit the student and give them the best possible ways to learn.
