Juliet Hawk exceeded our expectations as a tutor for our daughter. In preparing for the ACT, Juliet helped her increase her scores by thoroughly explaining questions. My daughter appreciated her patience and her attention to detail. From a parent's standpoint, we feel Juliet went above and beyond to accommodate our daughter's busy schedule and she was always precisely on time. We recommend her tutoring services to other families
I highly recommend Lynne as an English tutor. With her help I've significantly improved my communication and writing skills.
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!
This is the best tutoring company I've ever come across.
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.
Baeleigh (our daughter to whom James is tutoring) says, "I love that instead of James just telling me how to do something, he uses visuals and is very interactive in explaining something to me. There is nothing that he can do better, I am happy that he is my tutor." As parents, we like that he is so good at finding how Baeleigh learns best so that he can teach her in a way she understands. He is patient and has been good at keeping in touch with her teachers and also with us.
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!
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.
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!
I am very happy with the service of our math tutor. She is very knowledgable and helpful in the area of calculus. We are happy we found her!
Kim was great . She explained everything to me and gave simple directions that I can understand and she was very patient when it came to her payment . I had a hard time trying to do the pay pal or anything that involves the computer or my phone even . She was great to work with . ! She also sent me 2 resumes that I can choose from and they turned out great ! And it was done in the time frame that I needed .
Joshua has just started tutoring our 11 year old son Noah who originally hated the idea of a tutor. Noah is now not only ok with the idea of a tutor but looks forward to spending time with Joshua understanding the math concepts that have been frustrating him since he began 5th grade. Joshua is patient, calm, and kind.
I'm very excellent with math. The highest math I have done is Algebra 3. I will help with any math to that level. I am capable with elementary to high school math.
I offer French lessons tutoring, covering intermediate level. I did my studies in Switzerland and France. This is my native language.
My goal is to teach students how to understand and work through certain concepts they might have trouble learning in the classroom setting. I assure you that any student can really have an easy school and career, but only with the right help.
What makes me such an effective tutor/educator is that I can relate to students on their level. If they don't understand important material, I am patient in further educating them until they fully comprehend. I have a BA in English literature from a university on the East Coast. I was an editor for over a year and a half reading student papers and dissertations. I am familiar speaking to people with accents as I volunteered at a school for international students learning English. I do my best to make learning a fun and enjoyable experience. My stepbrother was from Russia, and I helped teach him how to read. He is now an avid English communicator who no longer even has an accent. Please contact me for more information on how I can meet all your expectations of me and more!
If you want a tutor who works hard to create a positive rapport to teach reading, phonemic awareness, comprehension, decoding, writing (expository and narrative) and math I am your tutor! I come to you, or you come to me. We can also select a library setting. M tutoring is FUN and hands on. My philosophy is positive reinforcement. We work hard, but in a positive interactive manner that does not scream "BORING".
I am tutoring basic math. I teach adding, subtracting, multiplying and dividing fractions, decimals and percents. I teach formulas for geometry and pre-algebra. I also teach ratios and averages.
