Lisabeth helped me with my ACT writing skills and with the reading and science sections. We did 2 hour sessions. The quality of her work was great and she helped me a lot with the ACT and helped me calm down before my test. My experience with her was great and I will definitely contact her in the future.

Carl is an experienced tutor who provides more than just "homework help" or "test prep." He helped my son with valuable life lessons like organizing his notebook and assignments. He also instructed him to advocate for himself by encouraging him to speak to his teacher after school and to be more proactive about raising his hand in class. Carl was able to identify why my son was struggling, and it had nothing to do with actual understanding of the subject matter. Rather, it was inadequate teaching materials (handouts) and a less than optimal style of teaching. Once these problems were identified, we were able to come up with solutions that would help my son succeed in class. Most importantly, Carl is not just concerned with grades and test scores. His primary concern is that the student actually knows and understands the work. I would not hesitate to refer Carl to anyone needing a tutor for their child.

I have been learning so much from Lois regarding test strategies for the GRE. Her method is unlike any I have practiced and I actually feel I can tackle the GRE now!

Excellent tutor! Daniel tutored my 13 year old son in Physics. My son went from being completely lost to getting an A in the class. Very professional, explains topics clearly, connects well with student. My son loved the Skype/online white board method of teaching. No need to go anywhere or sit in traffic. Daniel was flexible with setting up lessons and even made time when urgently needed, like before a test. My son had a great experience and can't wait to learn with Daniel again when he gets to HS physics.

I had Bri as a math tutor for the ACT. She was funny, professional, and very knowledgeable. I wanted to get my score up 4 points, and with her help, I was able to on practice tests. I would highly recommend this service, especially Bri, if you're looking for any kind of tutoring--standardized test or school subject. Thank you, Bri!

Called Daniel to help me at the last minute get ready for a statistics test. He met me the next morning and really helped me understand some concepts I was struggling with, especially word problems and figuring out which equations should be used. He was great to work with and really knows his stuff! Highly recommend him for math tutoring!!

Lawrence is an outstanding tutor. He has inept knowledge on how one can improve and can be ready for SAT's. He is affable, hence my daughter comments that she is comfortable every session. I have trusted Lawrence and Viva test prep, that my daughter will continue tutor sessions for some of her challenging AP courses. I highly recommend Lawrence and Viva test prep!

My daughter has been working with Reza on math for over a year and he has helped her keep a steady grade. I was impressed at how punctual he is and extremely reliable. He is willing to meet my schedule demands almost all the time and can work for however long we may need him. What stood out to me is how patient he is when teaching and will explain multiple times in whatever way suits my daughter. She needs a lot of written explanations and Reza goes out of his way to make sure she understands, teaching her in a specific way unique to her. He draws graphs and gives examples that relate to her everyday life and will go over each equation until she can do it on her own. He doesn't pressure her and gives her all the times she needs. Recently he has helped her in Science as well, she was struggling a lot with her homework and tests and he helped her bring up her grade quickly. He has greatly helped my daughter improve on her math and science skills and she is doing much better and no longer struggling in either class thanks to Reza. He is an excellent person and we as a family feel very comfortable with him teaching my daughter.

CML tutored our high school freshman this fall for about two months. He provided helpful advice on how to approach high school work (study skills, tackling big textbooks, time management) as well as specific, excellent feedback on essay writing and math, and AP test prep. He's very patient, approachable, and has a good sense of humor and he and my son have a great rapport. He was also very flexible and worked around our busy schedule. We highly recommend him.

Rachel is a fantastic and brilliant math tutor. I hadn't taken a math class in about 23 years and wanted to pass my placement exam out of intermediate algebra to go directly into statistics. I knew I could recall a lot of the concepts if I had a good guide to help me quickly get an understanding. We met at various libraries for our sessions depending on where I was working on those days and times. She was patient, quickly understood without completely disregarding my seemingly far fetched goals, and helped me get through any challenging areas in a way that made it very clear. She has a way of making math "fun and sweet" like I had never previously realized it could be/is. I had 3 sessions with her (2 hrs, 3 hrs, 2 hrs) over the course of one week and passed my test by that Friday. When I started in my statistics class, I recommended her to anyone that was anticipating having any trouble with the class. If I have any trouble with math classes in the future, I know exactly who to call; she is the best! I'm so grateful to Rachel for her support and encouragement.

I'm seventeen years old and took the new 2016 SAT test for the first time. My score was significantly lower than my GPA would indicate. I had several offers from tutors to assist in improving my SAT score. After reading the reviews and talking with several people, I choose to work with Sarah. I have had multiple sessions with her this summer. I highly recommend Sarah to be your tutor. She has a very pleasant personality and always makes sure you understand the current concept before moving on to another. She is very understanding of your schedule and will do whatever she can to work with you. I am ending my sessions only because to my pleasant surprise I have been offered an athletic scholarship after my senior year that will accept my current gpa and current SAT as completely satisfactory.

Cindy is an absolute visionary. I am a senior in high school, and I met Cindy a few months before I began this school year. My strengths academically are mainly in reading, writing, social studies, and philosophy, but Cindy has enhanced my knowledge and appreciation for mathematics, science, and my capabilities in problem solving as a whole. When I first met Cindy, I was in desperate need of a math tutor, but what I received was more than I could have ever imagined. Aside from her outstanding mathematical capabilities, Cindy has served as my mentor, ultimate problem solver, entrepreneurial guru, and ultimate inspiration throughout my college prep and application process. As a fellow performer, and actress, Cindy also has helped me explore my passion for theatre, and expand it to become a flourishing intrigue with anthropology, psychology, and motivational speaking. She is literally the reason that I am now travelling as a motivational speaker/ Body Positive facilitator to youth, ranging from middle school to high school. In offering her invaluable time, ambitious mindset, and incredibly compassionate demeanor, she has allowed me to find my true passions, and encourage others to do the same. Furthermore, Cindy is beyond this world amazing. Whether to call her an angel, an oracle, a goddess, a reincarnated Albert Einstein, or any other form of awe, I am not worthy to concretely say. However, I can attest that Cindy has absolutely changed my vision for myself and the world around me, my societal views and aspirations, as well as having enhanced my mathematical and test taking capabilities. Truly, Cindy is the most wonderful, kind, creative, talented, and intelligent essence, one could ever hope to meet or aspire to become.

Having been out of school and needing to pass the CBEST, I needed to go back and relearn the math concepts in the test so I called Amy Schadt to tutor me through the Math section, something I was totally terrified to do. I’m so pleased, Amy helped me so much. She was conscientious, patient, knowledgeable…and helped me find the simplest way to understand the basics and how to think in "math". My discovery while working with her was that even though I was in school for so many years, I never really learned many of the basics. She helped me through the confusion and terror. Thanks so much Amy for a job well done. Joanne

After a couple less-than-stellar tutoring experiences via Thumbtack, I feel incredibly fortunate to have found Sol. My tutoring needs were somewhat unusual: after a 10-year hiatus, I needed to reacquaint myself with high school math in order to pass a placement test into a college-level calculus I course. Far easier said than done. Sol was up for the challenge, and knew just how to tackle it. After I had diligently dug out of my old textbooks from my parents' garage, Sol offered an anecdote about his dear friend and and former Cal-Tech college roommate when he was confronted with modern-day high school math. (Sol, you see, is not only an incredibly savvy tutoring professional, but also a retired JPL scientist--and a thoroughly interesting, thoughtful and personable man to boot.) As Sol's anecdote helped to illustrate, the scope of high school math has evolved in recent years, in ways even the former president of Hughes Aerospace, in a moment of complacency, would fail to appreciate. Pre-Calculus theses days focuses much more on the interpretation of graphs, and introduces concepts such as solving and plotting the inverse of linear and fractional equations, which wasn't even taught when I took the course circa 2000. At Sol's request, we set aside my old textbooks in favor of modern coursework that he provided. It was a few months later, at our last lesson, that I was able to truly appreciate how much Sol cares about his students. In his office, I happened to glance at a computer window where Sol had a folder with my name and files charting 'Goals', 'Progress' and 'Notes'. Sol's hard work and investment in my success paid off: on my placement test I scored a 98%--surpassing the score I had needed for calculus I and placing me into calculus II! As Sol predicted, the test had focused quite extensively on those more modern facets of pre-calculus that he had taught me. Now in calculus II, I feel utterly prepared, and only have Sol to thank. *Highly* recommended.

I first reached out to Spencer to prep me for a job interview. This involved updating my cover letter and preparing/rehearsing my interview questions and answers. With Spencer’s tutoring, I felt much more confident and ready for the interview. While going through the final stages of the interview process, the hiring company tasked me to prepare a custom presentation. Spencer’s thoughtful questions, creativity and attentiveness helped me nail this final task and I landed the job! I still work with Spencer on any speeches and business presentations I have to give. He takes the time to understand my point of view on the subject in order to help craft the right material and tone. Throughout each project, Spencer is always helping me improve my articulation and vocabulary. This has made a tremendous difference in both my professional and personal life! Overall, Spencer is an excellent teacher and public speaker.
