John has been really helpful and responsive. He distills complex formulates into modular, simplistic fragments for me to grasp easily both with my GRE and Statistics study. Highly recommend him as a tutor/teacher.

I'm a scientist working at UC-Berkeley. I've been taking a personal class with Toni since February 2013. It is working quite well. Toni is a grat ESL teacher. She adjusts her teaching style based on my interest and encourages me to speak as much as possible during class. She often sends me internet articles that will interest me. I highly recommend Toni!

Kathleen has made a tremendous difference in our son's Spanish skills. He's had a difficult teacher in school this year and Kathleen has helped to build this knowledge, understanding and confidence with both written and verbal work. Our son has said that Kathleen has been a tremendous help to him. She is reliable and I've felt she genuinely wants her students to succeed.

Angela does the best job of explaining concepts for AP/SAT if you are trying to learn something outside of school. We did our tutoring over the computer, but I actually found it more engaging than in person. For example, I was confused about cos (180degrees), because I hadn't learned about it in school yet. Angela's explanation also made 10x more sense than what my math teacher would say. Now I FINALLY understand how to find cos (180degrees)!

I definitely recommend Linda as an ESL teacher with a background in business marketing. If you want to enrich your career especially in global markets, work with her and learn to use English to develop and achieve those goals.

Neal was an amazing tutor. I had a 72% in my summer school stats class at week 3 when I enlisted his help. He worked around my crazy schedule and even came to my house. With his help both from tutoring and with his guidance for my final project, I was able to finish the class with an 89.14% at week 6. My teacher even emailed me to tell me he was impressed with my hard work and rounded my grade up to an A! Neal is a humorous guy, so he made my statistics tutoring both fun and informative which I really appreciated during a very stressful class. I would absolutely recommend Neal as a tutor! Perhaps my only "negative" comment would be that he is ridiculously smart and at times I had a hard time following along with his explanations. But for the most part, he "dumbed" down the confusing material and really helped me bring up my C to an A. Thanks Neal!!!!!!

    Dani was my first English teacher, and I remember clearly of her sweet welcoming high-five on our first day of class. She contributed a lot not only to my language learning, but also to my professional career for I am an English teacher as well. I remember her classes were really motivating, interesting, and fun. She provided us with clear explanations and was open to answer our questions. All my classmates felt in a very comfortable and safe environment throughout the course. Dani is a very prepared and effective teacher. She has linguistic and applied-linguistic knowledge, great teaching skills and respect and for her profession as well as for her students.

    Audrey is excelent teacher, she helped me to lose my respect to speak English. She let me speak and then corrected my mistakes and explained why I did them. She wrote these sentences with corrected mistakes and I can look at it anywhen. I could choose the topic and l learned to use English in common life. It helped me in my job very much.

      Clint helped both of our children with their math courses from grade school through high school. Clint is very patient, caring, and able to identify each students learning style. He is flexible, professional, and effective. Clint is familiar with each school's teachers and requirements. Both of my children performed better on exams and were better prepared for the next course level because of his tutoring.
