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. Weâll be calling her again when itâs time to prepare for the AP Lit test!! Thank you Juliet for your help!!!
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 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!
Matt was extremely helpful to my son who was taking his ACT for the second time. His first tutor was just not the right fit, and we wasted a lot of time and money on him. Matt has a great demeanor and my son and he covered a lot of ground in very little time. I would highly recommend him to any student in needs of test prep, and will be using him with my younger son in the future. He is professional, punctual, reliable and has good communication in between session so that you know how your child is progressing.
"I' been learning math from Batu. I'm 56, and I've been really scared about taking my Algebra class. He help me learn the concepts really well and I got an A in my class. He really clear and had his own way of approaching the subject. I'm glad I chose him as a teach.
Travis worked one on one with my son in preparation for the ACT exam. Not only did they work out a great schedule, but they worked efficiently and hit the target goal right on. Throughout the entire process Travis kept my son motivated, but most importantly my son was very happy and never complained. Travis has a special demeanor and can connect with all personality types and ages in any setting. He is the best tutor we have come across and we would not hesitate to recommend him to anyone else in the future.
James started tutoring my son ending of last school year (the Last month of school.) My son was at risk of not participating 8th grade promotion. Not only did his grades improve, but fulfilled the requirements for graduation. James has been a Great influence for my son. He is dedicated and really cares about the future of his students. You will not find a better tutor.
Mary Ellen was an excellent tutor for both my daughter and son. Her ability to connect and adjust her teaching style to their differing personalities was amazing. When she first started working with them, it was mostly strengthening their grammar and writing strategies. She was especially helpful with the literature my daughter had to read for her AP lit class. Having her help them prep for the ACT as well as college essays was the best decision I made!
Diane: I wanted you to know that Paolo passed the math test for middle school and will be taking the advanced class for 7th and 8th grade!! Thank you for your help with both my boys throughout the years. You are such an inspiring person. God bless!
April is an excellent Tutor . She is patient , interacts extremely well with my son and knows her subject matter . I am very happy with her tutoring thus far . I also appreciate the professionalism of Xamaze is a Company. They keep you informed every step of the way.
Matt Klemsz is a great tutor. He's easy to talk to which is great for tutoring and any questions I have on homework he is a great help and helps me learn the material. He has given me great advice on how too shorten my steps in math problems too make it easier too understand and so that it is less complicated.
Jeanne is a great essay editor.She has excellent insight and a superb command of grammar and the english language. I highly recommend Jeanne!
Lance was one of the most helpful tutors I've ever had. He has a thorough understanding of the material and really enjoys helping his students. Lance has always provides the the best examples and explanations to make sure you have a firm grasp of the subject, even when doing group work. It is a hard task to keep everyone in a group on the same level of understanding but he does it masterfully. He also makes himself available by email if there are any questions that you encounter through the process of studying. My experience with him has lead me to improve my GMAT score by almost a hundred points. I would 100% recommend him when trying to choose a test prep program or personal tutor.
I tried numerous different tutors for my son’s SAT reading scores, but none of them were as good as Nico. He is very good at communicating the material and ensuring improvements for each lesson. As a graduating high school senior he is able to provide a unique perspective that other most other tutors can’t. This came in handy when it came to communicating the best test centers, SAT dates, and also the atmosphere of the test.
Simply the best SAT tutoring we have experienced. Our son enrolled in a preparation course with no significant results or guidance. We decided to try Tutor Nerds and the experience was exceptional. I loved how our tutor kept the lessons very active and was always asking questions making sure my son was really learning the topics. We still have another month of lessons till the test date.
