Lisa-Beth is a great tutor and is teaching me business English and grammar lessons. Our first meeting was easy to schedule and she made me feel comfortable. Would highly recommend her to anyone wishing to learn quickly and correctly.
Carl is an experienced tutor who provides more than just "homework help" or "test prep." He helped my son with valuable life lessons like organizing his notebook and assignments. He also instructed him to advocate for himself by encouraging him to speak to his teacher after school and to be more proactive about raising his hand in class. Carl was able to identify why my son was struggling, and it had nothing to do with actual understanding of the subject matter. Rather, it was inadequate teaching materials (handouts) and a less than optimal style of teaching. Once these problems were identified, we were able to come up with solutions that would help my son succeed in class. Most importantly, Carl is not just concerned with grades and test scores. His primary concern is that the student actually knows and understands the work. I would not hesitate to refer Carl to anyone needing a tutor for their child.
Jeffrey is a very focused teacher and has a relaxed and encouraging demeanor which is allowing our daughter to learn a strategy for taking these entrance exams. Not sure what the outcome will be but so far she has improved her test taking skills at school. Thanks Jeffrey!
Joyee of Thinque Prep was able to offer comprehensive services not just in tutoring, but in test preparation and college counseling. He is extremely knowledgeable and able to help improve ACT and SAT scores. But, he also is very helpful on guiding the student into which types of schools would be a good fit for him/her. He and his team were able to work hard to help my son out. My son boosted his SAT scores high enough to qualify for a $19k scholarship at his number 1 college. Thanks so much!
Working with Eric and Elite Home Tutoring could not have been a better experience. Eric was amazingly responsive to any questions I had and he paired my son with a terrific tutor (Bri) for his ACT test. The prices are very fair and I will definitely be using EHT again.
I enlisted the help of Arbor Tutors to help me with test prep for grad school. Oh man! I am SUPER happy I did that. I got accepted into all of my top choices (Columbia, Penn, Cornell and Duke).
Daniel has tutored me through 2 years of college math including, calculus 2, calculus 3, linear algebra, and differential equations. He helped me on a weekly basis with homework assignments and preparing for tests. The way he taught cleared up all of my questions from lecture and changed my approach to math for the better. Thanks to Daniel's methods and thorough explanations, I earned A's in all my classes. If you seek a solid understanding of math and a professional tutor, I highly recommend Daniel.
Needed ACT Test tutoring for my daughter. Ryan was knowledgable in all areas and helped her raise her score by 2 points.
Math tutoring for my son to prep for the SAT. Went great Mr. Reid helped my son feel more confident in math.
Many tutors know algebra but Muhammad from Elite knows his stuff! Chris, my son, now looks forwards to hanging out and talking math with "Mo" now!
The best tutoring service your kids will ever find. No other tutoring center has the same experiance, quality, and the tutoring. They really make sure you know your stuff and make you feel confident before your tests.
We hired Matthew to prep our daughter for the ACT test. Her mock test score was 28. We hired Matthew just for a few hours before her real ACT test. I got the results today. Her score is 33! We are very happy.
I can't say emphatically enough how much my son gained from Rainbow: he took the Paving the Way to College workshop and used Rainbow tutors to prep for college entrance exams. A special shout out to Joe, who always made time and was so encouraging. The results speak for themselves: my son ultimately got to choose from numerous terrific colleges. Thank you, Rainbow!
Kristi is a great tutor! She is very knowledgeable in math and was easily able to go through my math practice test and answer all of the questions I had. Thank you for helping me pass my math entrance exam for university!
I would highly recommend Great Expectations College Prep for anyone with a child planning to attend college!! I've had two daughters go through her program. From SAT/ACT prep to the college application process. Jennifer and her staff gave my girls the confidence and knowledge to take ownership of the college process. Jen and her staff gave all the tools my girls needed to do their best on their tests and guide them through the schools that best met all their needs. The entire process was VERY easy, without stress and my girls happy. I'll be using them for daughter no. 3 in a few years.
I first spoke with Victor about AP biology tutoring for my son. Victor always replied quickly and gave my son a full study plan for his class and the AP test. We started with tutoring at home and also had a few online sessions using Skype and Victor's whiteboard app which really helped my son, especially when he was getting over a flu. My son said he learned more in a month with Victor than he learned in a semester in class. I also called Victor again for ACT test prep for my daughter. He connected me with one of his great tutors, Josh, who was also patient and professional. My daughter really increased her scores in English, Reading, and Science thanks to Josh and Victor's guidance. I'd highly recommend Victor and his team for AP and ACT test prep. Thank you both!
Nick strikes a great balance as a counselor and tutor. Though he's incredibly knowledgable in his field, he retains a certain approachability, a down to earth quality, that renders meeting with him simultaneously productive and enjoyable. I used to dread working on my college applications and studying for my ACT, but by being a tutor AND a friend, Nick made the whole process a lot less of a chore. With his help, i got into my dream program at New York University and am incredibly excited for the fall. College Prep and Education and general need more folks like Nick Soper.
Sam is excellent and extremely skilled in teaching in a way that works very well for my high school son. We use Sam for Chemistry and Pre-Algebra. He is the best tutor we have ever worked with and cannot recommend him highly enough.

My specialty with the pro-literacy programs, classrooms, group dynamics as well as tutoring and preparing learners for testing has been reading, math and art. I also specialize in utilizing creative learning and test-taking anxiety techniques with individuals who learn differently. I realize and recognize the challenges and struggles often experienced during the learning process; therefore, communication is vital! We will establish goals and by-when dates during the initial meeting. Reaching goals and learning how to exercise your potential is most important. Students who are committed to their stated goals will do well but will be challenged with homework assignments. Completion of challenging but not overwhelming homework is a key component to the learning process for the learner as well as for the teacher/tutor. I pride myself in providing reasonable accommodations as needed, maintaining a flexible schedule and being prompt. My expectations include reciprocal respect, open communication and sharing real concerns. I care enough to give constructive feedback and expect the same from each individual I work with. My cancellation policy is a 24-hour notice for both of us. We can always reschedule for another time when we both are available. Three consecutive absences will cause for an assessment, reevaluation and redetermination. Your success is what really matters. I will always check in with you to see how things are going and hope that you will share any concerns as well. I believe in a quiet learning environment, such as a library, for best results. Distractions such as phone calls can disrupt progress. I'm looking forward to partnering with you as we diligently work towards your desired goals.

I focus on individualized positive teaching to motivate each student. I continually adjust my teaching style to suit the learning style of each student. My diverse background provides me with many different stories to tell and experiences to draw from and I am able to apply textbook concepts to real-life situations. I see and demonstrate connections between chemistry and cooking, physics and dance, math and sports. My analogies between seemingly disparate things are endless! Growing up in the different worlds of Science and Dance has been an unimaginable benefit to my own growth that I love sharing the integration of subjects with others.
