I've been doing one hour of tutoring/day with a language coach from Spanish55 for about a month now. It's been an incredible experience!! I have learned so much this month and it's really helping to prepare me to care for Spanish speaking patients as a student midwife. I feel so grateful to have found Spanish55!

Juliet Hawke is an amazing educator. She helped my daughter prepare for the SAT and both her instruction and encouragement were invaluable to my daughter!! She felt that her time spent tutoring with Juliet was very beneficial and she was confident going into the test. Juliet is very organized, professional, knowledgeable and personable! I would highly recommend her to any of my friends that have a need for English or test prep tutoring. We’ll be calling her again when it’s time to prepare for the AP Lit test!! Thank you Juliet for your help!!!

I needed last minute tutoring for a final exam and Nina was quick to respond and schedule me last minute. She explained everything very clearly and made sure to answer any questions I had. I feel like I learned more information in just one tutoring session than in most of my math classes this semester. I would highly recommend her for math tutoring.

Jenny was a fantastic ACT tutor for my son! I could not have picked a better tutor. Jenny worked with him this summer and was able to quickly ascertain his areas of strength and areas for needed development for the ACT. She also quickly assessed his learning style and put together an efficient customized learning/tutoring plan and tutoring schedule for the summer that helped him make huge strides in both his strongest and weakest sections of the ACT, improving his already high comprehensive test results by 5 points thus far with another week of tutoring yet to go! In particular she did an amazing job tutoring him on the English portion, helping him go from a 26 to a 35 in that section! He has really enjoyed working with her and looked forward to their tutoring sessions. I will be signing my younger son up for ACT tutoring with Jenny next summer for sure!

I found Club Z! In-Home Tutoring Services of San Diego Coast to be a very reliable and allows for quick access to quality tutors. The tutors are knowledgeable, friendly and helpful. Desiree, the Area Director, is a great resource as well when I have looked for guidance on questions with students, as I am a Special Education Teacher, and for my own children. I highly recommend Desiree and her tutors as a teacher and a parent!

I was signed up to take a Kaplan course for GMAT prep and was talking to a co-worker about it when they told me their story. They took one of the same Kaplan courses I was signed up to take and didn't get their desired GMAT score. In their second attempt, they signed up for private tutoring with John Easter, one of Elite Home Tutoring tutors, and their GMAT score improved by over 100 points. After hearing this story, I called to cancel my Kaplan class & signed up with Elite Home Tutoring, with a special request to work with John. During my studies, I decided that I wanted to take the GRE instead of the GMAT. I explained this to my tutor John and to Eric at Elite Home Tutoring and the change was so simple. John is not only skilled in GMAT prep but GRE prep as well. So the only thing that would need to change were the materials. If you're looking for the best resources for test prep I highly recommend Elite Home Tutoring. I have no complaints!

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!

We love Ms. Konie! Our 9 year old son has Fragile X and struggles in both writing and math. We have been seeing Konie twice a week for the last six months. She continues to work tirelessly to keep her tutoring sessions interesting and engaging for our son. And we continue to see improvements in his ability to organize his thoughts and write cohesive paragraphs. We would recommend Konie to everyone!

Ana was a great learning coach and tutor for my 16 year old nephew! She was so enthusiastic and really was able to help him with some hard High School subjects, all the while being caring and empathetic and very available! I would rehire Ana again without hesitation!

Joseph Descans helped me with the editing of several documents. His knowledge and editing skills were outstanding, and his patience with the process was the best part. It can be tremendously frustrating when you have "writer's block" and the words just don't come out right, but a patient tutor is such a great asset to have in your back pocket!

Marie Woodruff holds multiple advanced degrees and is also the author of numerous books. She assisted in my education throughout the 1980s. Now a professional writer, proofreader, and copyeditor myself, Marie is still an invaluable asset to me when I need a fresh eye to review copy. She is highly qualified for grade-school tutoring in English and grammar skills, and is patient and kind, but firm, with her charges. Please feel free to contact me for more information. Kim L.

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.

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 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.
