John worked with my brother for the SAT, who was academically unmotivated. After a month with John, my brother ended up scoring a 2100! I worked with John when I was studying for the GRE and he was very helpful. He is extremely smart and although he has not taken the GRE, could probably score in the 99th percentile. He tutored me specifically in the math section, a subject that I absolutely hate. However, John simplified the math problems and made it very easy to understand. He also has a quirky sense of humor which makes the tutoring sessions less serious.

Nando was very accommodating and came to my neighborhood to give me a free lesson to see if we would be a good fit. I am able to work on grammar and conversation with Nando and get extra help that I am not able to receive by taking group classes.

Nicolas worked with my son on his high school math. My son was having a terrible time in his classes, and Nicolas acted as a guide and tutor though the years. He was very patient and understanding, and always arrived on time for the tutoring sessions. In the end, my son wound up with A's and B's in the classes, and was accepted to his first-choice college. Thanks, Nicolas!

I took few classes from Chris last year and I must say that it has been phenomenal. Chris has got an amazing depth on different accents, language and grammar. I improved my accent a lot by learning some techniques. I will recommend Chris to anyone who is looking for accent reduction or adopt a different accent or simply talk in the public.

Francesca is extremely patient and very good with kids. She engaged my very hyper active son and has been a huge part of getting him ready for first grade reading and comprehension. She was always on time, always upbeat and he enjoyed his summer lessons a great deal. I highly recommend her.

    My stepdaughter has been working with Sylvia for a few months now and we can really see a difference in her math and English (reading, writing, spelling, etc). My stepdaughter actually looks forward to her time with Sylvia, which is so important to us. Sylvia is very patient, personable and knowledgeable. My stepdaughter got very excited yesterday, after she found out that Sylvia is also fluent in Spanish because she would like to start working on that as well. I feel that we really lucked out with finding Sylvia. Soon, my other stepdaughter will be working with Sylvia to prep her for the SSAT!

    Jeffrey is a very accomplished scholar and talented lecturer and tutor. He is attentive to students' needs, genuinely concerned about their development, and invests and unusual level of effort in producing his lessons and lectures. He has a broad range of experience to offer in all types of writing, from professional documents to academic essays. His command of the language and his extensive knowledge of its use and its history give him a particularly nuanced approach to both writing and editing.

    Ms. Halper scores highly in all five categories. Her editing encompasses logic, English usage, and general organization. She leaves an option for personal preference, as in, "You may prefer to say this this way, but I would prefer that way," and leaves the final decision to the author. She works diligently; I receive her edits in a timely manner. Her cost is reasonable. I feel lucky to have found such a competent resource.

    Lisa taught me how to write in just a few months. Even though I was a college junior at the time, I never knew how to write until Lisa became my tutor. I am now a successful psychologist who has written several manuscripts. I will always be grateful to Lisa for what she taught me! Dr. Tabin
