My 13 year old son loved studying with John for SSAT. SSAT is a tricky and challenging test; we've worked with a number of tutors before, but John's pace, accessibility and sense of humor clicked perfectly with my son's needs and taste. John goes through a material quickly, but thoroughly, which helps covering a lot of ground in a reasonable time and makes every session very effective. It takes a number of qualities to make a good test tutor, and John has them all. My son's score improved after just a few sessions with John, but these sessions were also enriching and fun. We recommend him highly. Victoria

Camilla is the best teacher ever! She helped me to speak English without worrying about my pronunciation. She always speaks English during the classes, so it’s easy to learn through many examples and exercises, she carefully prepares and selects the material for each lesson. She is very patient and kind.I loved her lessons!

Cai laoshi (Lillian) is an excellent Chinese tutor! She worked with our kids this summer, ages 12 and 8. Lillian is very patient in teaching them, and is able to customize the teaching curriculum based on each child's learning style. She did a lot of songs with my daughter, which helped her become engaged and interested. For our son, she had him learn poems, along with vocabulary words. Lillian is very on time for all our sessions. She is also amazingly encouraging and uses positive reinforcement. She's responsive to emails and texts. Overall, our family couldn't have found a better Chinese teacher! She's a keeper! :)

Tara was our amazing French tutor for one intensive, full-week course, for both my husband and myself, right before we moved to France. She is bright, intelligent, on-trend...and was able to customize our lessons to our needs ( I needed practical grammar & conversation, at an Intermediate level)... And my husband was a complete beginner, with concentration on business & finance by the end of the week. But more than academics, Tara is patient, warm, friendly, understanding and upbeat! We even had lunches out, speaking French, to help us with French culture, customs and manners!! We recommend her 100%!!

Tim was a great teacher for me! He was easy to talk to,understood my questions, and helped me improve my weak points. After working with him for a few months, I was able to understand a lot of the material provided in the SAT test and improve a lot on my practice test. Overall, Tim is a great teacher for learning how to improve your English , especially to prepare for SAT test.

Hope is an amazing tutor. She is very patient but firm with my daughter and provides encouragement throughout the sessions. My daughter truly looks forward to her time with Hope and makes every effort to have any additional assignments completed. This action from a teenager is a true testament to Hope's skills and her ability to nurture her students. So happy we found her and I would highly recommend Hope to all my family and friends.

Ellie tutored my daughter Jessica for several months for the writing and reading sections of the SAT. Jessica learned grammar and vocabulary that she had not been taught in high school and she learned speed reading with greater comprehension. As a bonus, Jessica felt her newly learned writing skills carried over to better grades in High School classes and improved her college application essays. Jessica really appreciated the opportunity to work with Ellie to gain the confidence to perform well on the SAT. As a result, Jessica earned a very high score on the SAT and was accepted to the University of California in San Diego. I highly recommend Ellie as a tutor for the SAT.

Out of the many tutors we work with at our school, Rio is one of the best. He works beautifully with the students and their teachers as a partner and collaborator. The best part is how much the kids love him. He is an outstanding tutor.

Mika is a really good person!! She's easy to talk to no matter what your conversation level, and very thoughtful and supportive. I've not only been able to improve my English but also got to experience American culture while practicing typical English conversation. I feel very lucky to have met her. She'd be happy to help you improve your English while exploring the Bay Area, too, I'm sure.

About

Before starting with a client or group of students, I establish their current capability. With clients looking to improve their English skills, I determine the current level of fluency and then tailor the course to that achievement level. I generally use guides I provide as well as current class material to focus the tutoring sessions. Where possible, I like to use interactive CDs and the Internet, as well. I speak some French and Spanish which is helpful especially when the client's command of English is more limited.

She is pleasant to work with and I strongly recommend Club Z! to both parents of students as well as potential tutors.

Thank goodness we found Janet. She is the perfect tutor!! Down to earth, great with kids, trustworthy, thorough, and just fantastic. My son was behind in math and within a few months was at grade level and more importantly loving math! He gained skills and confidence and this was because of his work with Janet.
