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.
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.
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 would like her to call me to,set up a appointment for tutoring..text....but preferably call me at 951.212.3781...I am having issues with the site. Thank you
As a teacher and instructional consultant, I can honestly say that Manda definitely knows how to teach reading, comprehension, spelling and writing. She also has the unique ability to frame/organize the content of difficult courses, such as chemistry and calculus so that students can easily grasp it successfully. It is evident that she deeply cares for each individual student and I can attest to the success she has had with her students in regards to personal, as well as academic growth. She is an excellent tutor!
Gene has been more than good, he has been great! He listens carefully and then just seems to know exactly what to do. He's done several editing jobs for me and re-writes. I've recommended him to friends and they love the results they got too. I would highly recommend Mr. Vann for any kind of writing project, he's professional and he's very good. Sincerely, David Asmerom
Mrs. Konie is fantastic!!! My six year old has ADHD and has struggled in preschool and kindergarten as a result. His reading and writing abilities were well below the level required for a student of his age. For three moths, he worked with Mrs. Konie, twice a week, to improve these critical skills. To my surprise, my son now reads and writes. Most importantly, he enjoys the challenges of both. Thank you, Mrs. Konie.
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.
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!
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.
Marcia, is good tutor she will help you in any way. She had wonderful personality and she is always on time. She loves and cares her students. I really love her because she teaches like you were in classroom. Easy to understand. Awesome tutor never been late.
I hired Gene last summer to help my son get a better grasp on math prior to going back to school. I was not disappointed at all. I had Gene come over twice a week for about 6 weeks or so. By the end my son was ready for 6th grade! The tutoring really helped my son's attitude and confidence going back to school. I asked my son recently if he would like Gene to prep him in July/Aug for 7th grade math and english. He actually said Yes! Gene must be something special if a kid is willing to give up a few of hours each week of his summer vacation for tutoring. Gene is real personable with kids and they definitely like learning from Him.
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.
Ms Harroch is an amazing French teacher who has helped me tremendously in improving my ability to communicate in French. I am a high school student who recently worked with her to prepare for the AP French exam. I felt fully prepared and confident taking the exam because of her help. In addition, her fluency and knowledge of idiomatic French really helped me with my essay writing and conversational skills.
Rebecca R. – San Diego State University (Business and Marketing) “I met MathWizJohn when I was lost in my Accounting class. I felt like there was no way I was going to be able to learn so much material and turn my grade around when I was already so behind. The class was moving quickly, and the problems seemed to be from another planet or book I hadn’t read!! The tutors here were able to slow things down to my pace, show me the material in a way I understood it, and were always encouraging. I was able to salvage a B in the class (clutch), and since then I have received help in Acct 202 and Fin 323. MWJ’s has helped me stay on top of my tough classes, and my grades have improved a lot!”
Great service. Responsiveness and accommodations are among top traits of his quality of work. I look forward to having him on another project.
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.
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!

QUESTION: If this method is so simple, why didnt anyone figure it out before? .......................................... ANSWER: Frankly, were all scratching our heads and wondering the very same thing. Once a student experiences the ease and simplicity of the Universal Reading Method, theyll likely wonder why reading is taught any other way. History has shown us many examples of game changing technology that, once accepted, has had the ability to instantly alter the status quo. Just as in most of those prior situations, this method is likely to meet resistance at first. People often have a difficult time with big paradigm shifts in any field. There is an entire system in place set up to defend the way its always been done and many people might feel threatened. After all, the old methods worked for most of us, right? Well clearly not. It is estimated that up to ¼ of the adult population in the United States is functionally illiterate, with millions more inexplicably graduating high school every year. Tackling this huge problem with existing methods hasnt worked, nor can it work! Those systems are far too slow and cumbersome in their approach. Put simply, the goal of the Universal Reading Method is to help wipe illiteracy off the face of the English-speaking world. It might take some time to accomplish that, but now we at least have a suitable tool to tackle this growing problem. We hope youll give us a try. You have nothing to lose but more years of unnecessary frustration for the challenged reader that you know.
