Our 12th grade twin daughters are currently applying to colleges. Since Juliet was a high school principal last year, she understands the pressure of the college application process. She's been instrumental in teaching them the skills to write outstanding personal statements, apply for financial aid, and research the right universities. She also tutors them for AP Lit! We highly recommend her as a consultant and teacher!
Wow! We finally found a tutor for our son who actually knows how to teach! Mike has done a tremendous job at not only helping our son to succeed in his precalculus class, but he has been able to make a connection with our son where others in the past have not. Our son actually looks forward to his tutoring sessions with Mike, and recently commented, "Mom, he's really a good teacher. I wish I had him all through my school years!" We plan on using Mike for as long as our son needs his help ... through college if necessary! Finally, he's also just a really nice guy! We would strongly recommend Mike to anyone who needs a math tutor!
Before I went to Thinque Prep, I had struggled to overcome my slump and achieved nothing greater than a score of 30 on the ACT. I struggled studying by myself as I did not know how to improve my scores, nor did I know how to improve my time on certain sections. However, after I joined Thinque Prep, I was able to achieve my goal of an ACT score greater than a 34 or above, a 36. My tutor Joyee helped me understand ACT questions instead of memorizing rules or equations, which most tutors do. I find this style of tutoring more efficient and easier to remember. Overall, I am thankful to Joyee for preparing me well enough to achieve a perfect score on the ACT and making me a stronger college applicant.
My geometry tutor john was great! I highly recommend Eric and Elite.
Our physics tutor george was amazing.
Brandon was very helpful to work with my child whenever he was asked to. He is an excellent and dedicated tutor. A knowledagble and thorough mathematics tutor.
My daughter's ACT English and ACT Math tutors provided frequent updates about what has been covered in each session. It’s nice to be updated with my daughter’s learning progress.
My 12 year old son was hesitant about using a tutor. Lauri was so accepting and interested in talking with him. After our first meeting, he told me, "She is cool!" After working with him for 3 months this Spring and Summer, he is confident and ready to start the new school year. If he starts to falter, she will be our first call!
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.
Sara did an amazing job helping me prep for my SAT! Before receiving her help my scores weren't very satisfactory, but after I was able to achieve my goal. I would definitely recommend Sara to anyone who is looking for a tutor. Not only does she produce good results but she also has a great attitude that helps contribute to a positive study environment.
Excellent tutors and super easy to sign up for tutoring sessions. 5 Stars!!
Deryk tutored my high school senior daughter in preparation for the SAT exam. She raised her score by 600 points which really helped out with scholarships and grants for college! Thank you so much! B. Nichols

Tutor Squad was established with one objective in mind: to launch the most effective and productive educational program for students everywhere. Our goal is to provide students with a tool they can use to overcome all obstacles they may face throughout their educational curriculum. One-on-one tutoring provides the student with a highly individualized educational experience, making for a huge advantage over other students who rely solely on the minimal education provided at school.
I enjoy teaching and would like to be of help to those who would like to learn because based on my experience, knowledge can empower us.
I'm passionate about the success of my students. I believe in second chances as I received one and I would like to help students get a second chance to succeed.
