We started using Mike's services when we switched elementary schools last September. Our son was just beginning Common Core and we wanted to make sure he could keep up with the rest of the class as he is one of the youngest kids. Mike's lessons on basic math skills--such as place value, equations, counting money and telling time--have been an invaluable part of our son's academic success. Mike also makes math fun and interesting for our son--so much so that he looks forward to Mike's visits. He is friendly and knowledgeable and easy to schedule. We want to note that we had tried another tutor last summer. In the 12 weeks we used her (multiple times each week), our son did not progress much at all. That was the main reason we looked around for another tutor. (That and the fact that our son was starting to hate math.) Instead of multiple weekly sessions, it's one weekly in-depth session. Mike's background, skills and experience as a tutor are clearly evident. We highly recommend him.
Joyee Lin of Thinque has been nothing short of amazing. Professional with results to show. My daughter started working with Joyee a couple of months ago. Within six lessons, my daughter's composite ACT score went from a 28 prior to working with Joyee to a 32. Amazingly, her science score went from a 25 to a 32. Those numbers are the end result of Joyee's professional approach to teaching. During the lesson, Joyee utilizes a number of methods to present the material. It must be said that my daughter took his instruction seriously and worked hard on the material which was provided to her. The result was a good example of team work in which my daughter could receive, in addition to immediate instruction, quick review and understanding after working through the material. Joyee makes it easy to work around a busy lifestyle as he schedules and responds to correspondence promptly. We can't offer him enough praise. Joyee is offering an amazing service and we were so glad to have been referred to him.
Jonathan is approachable and patience. My daughter is 11 years old and is currently preparing to take the ISEE (Independent Schools Entrance Exam) in December 2016. This is her first experience with getting one-on-one tutorial help for the language art portion of the test. After just a few tutoring session, she has so much more confidence in approaching the essay portion of the test. Jonathan's methodology teaches her how to systematically approach each essay prompt as well as how to capture the reader's attention quickly. As for the reading comprehension portion of the test, he is helping her to find a pattern of where the test questions would likely be derived from the reading passages. Currently, her reading test practice score improves tremendously. She is able to read the passages and potentially predict the potential areas of importance. In addition, Jonathan also reviews the strategies of how to take standardized test. My daughter looks forward to every tutorial lesson because she knows that she can improve her ISEE test score.
Physics lessons with Tran was very well done. I'm doing much better in my college class now, I'm going to call elite if I need more help. Thanks Tran
Dea Gad been tutoring my son in Math for a few months now. He had improved his grade and has made good progress. She’s very punctual and responsible. She’s knowledgeable in the subject matter and will accommodate changing her schedule when he has tests. I would highly recommend her. FYI my son is a junior in high school and that’s the math she’s helping him with.
My son is very active in his school. As he is one of the lead players on the basketball team, I started to worry about the amount of attention that he was giving to his school work. I decided to check out Future Expectations and I have to say that I am extremely happy with the results and he got great scores on his SAT's. They helped him to really focus on the areas that mattered and that can be very hard for a teenage boy to do, I am a happy mom.
Knows his stuff. Very precise and love the written homework after every lesson. Highly recommend.
In all my years i've had a grudge with painters. I've delt with lazy painters, rude painters, and underqualified painters. David is one of the nicest painters that i have ever worked with! He was on time, did the job right, and was extremely professional despite him just starting out. I decided to give him a chance since he is currently attending school for his bachelors degree and i do not regret doing it!
I have two children that are tutoring with Nancy. My children were behind in school but after tutoring with Nancy they are making leaps and bounds in their academic studies. Nancy is very professional, fun, engaging, and patient. We're happy to have found her. Thank you Nancy!
Mazi from Top Tier Tutoring helped me Ace all of my General and Organic Chemistry classes for Medical School an helped me score in the 90th percentile on the MCAT. I truly owe my admission to David Geffen School of medicine at UCLA to Mazi. He really is informed and insightful on every field in science. But most of all he is the most caring and helpful individual when it comes to tutoring. I would have been lost if it were not for Mazi.
Samuel has great patience and knowledge. My sons love having Samuel come over to give them guitar lessons. Over all, I would definitely recommend him to others. Thank you, Samuel, for all the great work!!
I spent a lot of time looking for tutors for my 2 daughters and it was hard to find someone who could help 2 kids in one day. One of my daughters is ADHD and the other is behind in school. He also explained to me what my ADHD child should eat and shouldn't eat to balance and to help her focus. He is very knowledgeable with the topics he teaches and spends extra time as needed to make sure my children understood and tries to finished up homework. He is caring and very patient. Very good tutor.
Mr. Klaif was the Director of an after school program that my son attended throughout elementary and middle school (he will be entering college in the fall). Mr. Klaif engaged the kids in activities that were mentally and physically challenging. His interaction with kids is awesome! My son thrived under Mr. Klaif's care. I would highly recommend his services!!
My 5 yr old daughter has improved a lot in her reading and writing since starting Study Pals. They were very accommodating to our schedule and matched us with a great tutor! She makes the lessons easy to understand and engaging!
Konie is an outstanding educator, motivator and advocate for my 1st grader. She has helped our child read and write and after 3 months, he is now above grade level. He was so frustrated and upset with school before we came to her, that I couldn't get him to write his name without him becoming upset or having a tantrum. She has a progressive program, including structured rewards, pre-planned lessons that build skills and reinforce learning step-by-step. Her style is positive and caring. I endorse Konie without any reservations. I'm so glad we found her!
Purvi is a fantastic math tutor, She tutors my 7th grader son. She is extremely knowledgeable, organized, patient and has the ability to break down the lessons so that the information makes complete sense! I highly recommend her.
Couldn't be happier with my experience with Katie! She helped me with graduate school application essays that were very short. I wanted to get a lot of information across and she helped me navigate it, so my ideas were concise, genuine and eloquent. I highly suggest meeting with her in person as after just one meeting, we were able to construct an outline for an essay that before had been a mess of a free write. She enjoys doing this work and cares about each project, to the point she researched the specific program I was applying to, so as to more properly gear my personal statement for them. Without a doubt my go to for professional proofreading and editing.
I have observed Emily tutoring students several times. She helps students understand academic theories and encourages them to find the correct answer on their own. Emily gives the students rewards for completing assignments and good behavior, making the experience more enjoyable for them.
I am completing my undergraduate degree (marketing/management) but needed extra support passing the tougher classes like finance and supply chain management. Working full time it was important for me to find a tutor that could help me grasp "the big picture" quickly (after a long day at work) so I could complete weekly assignments on time & Maria has NEVER let me down! If you're looking for a tutor that's knowledgeable, takes the necessary time to ensure you understand the core concepts of the course, and truly supports you EVERY STEP of the way - do not hesitate and hire her immediately. I ended up keeping her as a tutor for other classes because she brings the lessons to life with her knowledge & unique insight. I graduate this Fall & have no gray hair & "peace of mind" because of this amazing lady! She's your personal "educational champion" for when times get tough (and they do for all students) - she's a tutor but I consider her a friend & would recommend her to students at all levels. Kent Every class I've had her help in have resulted in A's & I'm actually using finance concepts all the time now! I look
Mary is a wonderful tutor. She has a Master Degree and she is also a US Navy veteran. She is tough but she is good and will help the kid on track with their education. She is currently tutor my daughter who is in high school both Saturday and Sunday for 2 hours each day. Mary is very good with math, English, and Geometry. She help kids from all ranges of ages even up to high school. She helps my daughter preparing for her SAT now so she can get a good score and get a scholarship for her college after she graduated high school. Mary is also very flexible with her tutor schedule and willing to work with parents and student to ensuring a win-win for all. My daughter is very blessed to have her as a private tutor. Also, her pricing is very reasonable. Again, Mary is all about helping the students do well in school. She has a big heart and passion for helping kids. If you need a private tutor who will come to your house and help you tutor your children, Mary is the right choice. Call her and find out what option is right for you.
a great experience for someone looking to improve their english proficiency for college. i was referred by a friend to this school, and she told me this is what they specialize in. but they also great for working professionals hoping to improve their English too. their teachers and staff are what makes this school great.
