I hired Juliet to tutor my daughter for her final SAT. We initially hired her for 6 sessions. After the 6 sessions, she was so helpful that we hired her for an additional 6 sessions. My daughter who was initially reticent about using a tutor was sold. Juliet is not only experienced as an educator, but she is knowledgable about the test and provided the education in a supportive and non-threatening way. She was also flexible, reasonably priced and communicated with me regularly about my daughter's progress. I wouldn't hesitate to recommend Juliet and with another daughter getting ready to start the whole college process, we will use her again.
My daughter is a 9th grader at Point Loma High School. She transferred from a private Catholic school and has never seen the Integrated Math that they now offer in the public schools system. She has always battled math anxiety and I was very worried with the new math being offered. I was referred to Nina from a mutual friend right before school started and my daughter instantly bonded with her. She felt so at ease with Nina and she explained things in a way that she could easily understand. Nina even went so far as to attain a copy of her math book and reached out to her teacher. I am so very happy to say my daughter received an A her first semester and is maintaining an A in her second semester. I have recommended Nina to other students who are having a positive result as well. If you are looking for a math tutor - Nina is the best!
Miss Jenny is an exceptional teacher! We are very grateful to have found Miss Jenny to tutor our children; age 9 and 11 year old. Both of them have received tutoring from Miss Jenny since 3 years ago and their grades / test scores have improved tremendously right from the beginning. Miss Jenny always display enthusiasm for the subjects she teaches. She knows how to modify the teaching strategies according to the students' levels of comprehension. She is always so encouraging and motivating! Our children love her very much and they enjoy each of their tutoring sessions with Miss Jenny. We highly recommend Miss Jenny as a tutor / teacher to any children from Elementary to High School. Mike & Shirley Morris (Parents of Sebastian & Mia)
Our math tutor was great!
These are the best Tutors for the SAT you can possibly find. I hire them to tutor my daughter and the tutor was able to get my daughter to move up another 300 points in a very short period of time.
We were so happy to find Veronika last school year to tutor our daughter in Geometry! She quickly assessed the situation and recommended a plan to get our daughter back on track in her class. The teacher was out due to a family emergency. Her love and devotion to teaching are evident and we are so grateful for her help. Meredith successfully completed her class and is using all of the skills she learned from Veronika to tackle Algebra/Trig. Thank you, Veronika!
Baeleigh (our daughter to whom James is tutoring) says, "I love that instead of James just telling me how to do something, he uses visuals and is very interactive in explaining something to me. There is nothing that he can do better, I am happy that he is my tutor." As parents, we like that he is so good at finding how Baeleigh learns best so that he can teach her in a way she understands. He is patient and has been good at keeping in touch with her teachers and also with us.
Konie is an incredible tutor. My son never dreaded going to her, even while she was challenging him, and improved even from the first visit. I can not effectively express how great she is!
Diane tutored my daughter and son from 4th -8th grades for math. She is creatively able to maintain children's attention while planting useful strategies that can be used for both learning new concepts and test taking skills. I have recommended her to friends and acquaintances whose children have also benefited from her commitment to children. What a difference it makes for the entire family when your child finally feels a sense of accomplishment and pride upon learning all of the many new math concepts! Both of my children improved in their understanding of math and how to successfully take tests after working with Diane. She was one of the best investments my husband I and have ever made!!!
Kim was great . She explained everything to me and gave simple directions that I can understand and she was very patient when it came to her payment . I had a hard time trying to do the pay pal or anything that involves the computer or my phone even . She was great to work with . ! She also sent me 2 resumes that I can choose from and they turned out great ! And it was done in the time frame that I needed .
I am a very experienced tutor who is willing to teach almost any subject. I am very responsible and diverse in knowledge. I also love to make learning fun.
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.

Once she started tutoring me, things completely changed! Within a few months, my grades were up to an A-/B+ average! And her notes are fantastic! So neat and the colors help me remember all the formulas! She's fantastic!!" Michelle, 6th grader parent: "My daughter was struggling in multiple subjects and with sports she didn't have a lot of time to be wasting. I needed a tutor that could come over and tutor Math, English, and Spanish at one time. Cynthia was just perfect for that! She's great with all of the subjects and she got my daughter right on track very quickly and when STAR testing came around she even prepared her for that too. I can't stress how much her notes help! They are so great the night before an exam for last minute reviewing! I would definitely recommend her to anyone!!"

I am a third year college student, and I am currently pursuing a bachelor's degree in child development, and then I plan on completing a credentials program to become a special education teacher. Also, I currently have a 3.7 GPA. I was previously working on pursuing a career in nursing; therefore, I have taken science classes, including physiology, microbiology and molecular biology. I also have taken a total of four years of Spanish and completed other courses in math, English composition, world history, psychology and sociology. When tutoring, I'm willing to meet up at local coffee shops!
I have a way of making the subject matter fun and the learning relevant to the student. I show by examples that are interesting to the student how it would benefit them to understand the subject matter.

I've worked as an ABA therapist with children on the autism spectrum, ADHD, and Down's syndrome. I offer private academic tutoring for elementary and middle school ages. I am bilingual and fluent in Spanish.

I tutor mainly K-6 in all subjects, but I also tutor math -- prealgebra, algebra and Algebra 2. My strength as a tutor is helping students with subject content according to individual strengths, studying strategies and techniques, and development and evaluation of materials. I want to be able to build on their weakness and help them grow to success.
