Galina is helping my son learn Spanish and she is wonderful! She is prompt, warm, friendly, speaks several languages and so knows how to teach kids trying to learn another language. He looks forward to his lessons with Galina!

My 3rd grader enjoyed John's approach, she was happy that he actually helped her to learn some new concepts in the very first visit (abstract nouns - hope, wisdom, joy - "something you cannot put into the box and sell", as John puts it:)! We just started the lessons, so more updates to come. Also, I liked that he came with a work book right away - so I did not have to worry that we have no material to work with.

Grace is a patient, fun, and dedicated tutor. My two girls enjoy their lessons with Grace. Grace has made it fun for them to learn. They originally started with after-school Chinese lessons at a learning center. Because of the larger classroom size, my kids were not corrected and only learned to copy really well. Grace has corrected their stroke order and established a strong foundation in their reading and writing. We don't speak Mandarin at home so next she will work on their conversation. I am so glad and fortunate to have found Grace!

John Bertinetti helped me study for the GMAT exam over the summer of 2017 with concentrated sessions to review GMAT Quant. John got me started on a study path by sharing info about the best study resources for my problem areas, and would meet with me once or twice a week to go over key Quant problems that I needed help solving. John is an ideal tutor for students who are good at keeping themselves on track without a structured curriculum. Great value, flexible scheduling, and clear explanations of problems are all huge wins with him. About halfway through the summer, I realized that I needed a structured class and more discipline to keep myself on schedule, so I supplemented my study sessions with John with an independent online class with a live teacher. Key lessons w/John: John is all about understanding the concepts behind a problem before sharing tricks; his method is great for learners like me who need to understand the math conceptually and don't want to just memorize formulas. We did a lot of work on combinatorics and probability, which were my challenge areas. He was a great and affordable supplemental resource for me beyond the class. Results: I went from a 580 on my Manhattan GMAT diagnostic to a 730 score on the actual GMAT after 3 months of light study followed by 2 months of intense study.

Bruno is a one on one tutor for pre-calculus for my junior in high school. His knowledge of the subject and his ability to share it with my daughter are exceptional. My daughter's class is struggling to learn the basics so Bruno is basically teaching my daughter the new concepts. She is able to understand it and complete all her homework after her time with Bruno. She also felt confident taking her first quiz after her tutoring sessions.

Youlian's lessons are very well organized and planned, and she has an absolutely fantastic ability to explain the nuances and subtleties of day-to-day Mandarin. Every lesson includes listening comprehension, reading comprehension (I'm just using Pinyin for now but she covers Hanzi as well), and conversation practice, and Youlian always provides me with very helpful feedback.

Minok is an excellent math tutor for my daughter. Beginning of the school year my daughter has had some difficulties with her trig-algebra 2 class. She would like to improve her grade and prepare for finals. Minok came in fully prepared. I really appreciate that she genuinely cares about the student and she spent a lot of time preparing her class ahead of the time. Usually she will check with my daughter with what is on going in her class, and by time of tutoring she came with extra materials and practice to help the kids. By doing tutorial with her once a week, She was able to help my daughter improve her grade from B to an A and so far in the new trimester my daughter has been getting all As in her math test. We are very happy with her and will highly recommend her to all my friends.

I have been taking Spanish lessons from Ms. Price. She is incredibly personable, knowledgeable and helpful. My Spanish skills have soared since I've started with her. Very friendly, she is an excellent teacher. She knows where weak points are and knows how to explain advanced subjects in a way which is very understandable. I am definitely going to continue lessons and I highly recommend Ms. Price to anyone who is seeking to improve their language skills.

Every class I took with Dan Wekselgreene was comprehensive. Mr. Wekselgreene did an excellent job with his lesson plans and made sure all students understood the material. All his class work and home work was designed by him which makes it even better. His math lessons were clear, thoroughly, and fun. Also, he was responsive of his students. Always available to meet with them during, before, and after school. He is a teacher committed to his work and students. More than a math teacher he was a great mentor and advisor. Mr. Wekselgreene is a positive, patient, and compassionate man. I saw him face teenage negativity with a smile and hope. He is a great role model and a hardworking math teacher. I can say with confidence that anyone that comes across Mr. Wekselgreene will be lucky to have him as a teacher, mentor, and/or advisor.

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)!

Tim was a great teacher for me! He was easy to talk to,understood my questions, and helped me improve my weak points. After working with him for a few months, I was able to understand a lot of the material provided in the SAT test and improve a lot on my practice test. Overall, Tim is a great teacher for learning how to improve your English , especially to prepare for SAT test.

Amazing!! Jeriah is very professional and REALLY cares about the child's education. He is confident in his work and it shows. He is able to change his way of communication so his student is able to comprehend the lesson. Hands down the best tutor we've ever had!! We are extremely thankful for Jeriah and his incredible work ethic and morals.

My daughter is quite pleased she has Namita as her tutor in geometry. Namita is very patient and takes her time in explaining homework assignments to my daughter. Her sessions helped her catch up with lessons she did not understand before which made her and I very happy. I will definitely recommend Namita to my friends.

Chris is an excellent teacher. I had a few other teachers before her, and I can say Chris is the best. I think she is also a good phycologist, because she finds right approach to every student. Her lessons are very effective. My 7 years old daughter knew no English at all. She was ready to go to local school just after 3-4 lessons with Chris, her vocabulary increased from zero to a few hundreds of words. I feel dramatic improvement in my English pronunciation after taking lessons with Chris. My accent was so strong that even waiters in McDonalds did not understand me. Now I speak freely, even over the phone, and I do it intuitively without thinking about how do I do it.

My son Tristan has always had a little bit of trouble adjusting to the learning pace in a classroom environment, but he is more than able to excel above and beyond what is expected of his age group. We signed up for AP calc last year and had a lot of trouble in our first couple months. Tristan began falling behind and dropping down in test scores because he was unable to grasp the methods that the teacher divulged in the short 50 minutes that were allotted for the advanced course. We signed Tristan up in the academic resource center at school with a classmate tutor, but his peers could only reiterate what they had learned from the same set of teachers. When he told me he wanted to drop down to the pre-calc class, which is considered the “standard” level for seniors, I realized we had to get serious about devoting some time outside of PALY to get him the help he really needed. He only wanted the AP course on his transcript if it made him more appealing to colleges, and not if it were simply going to weigh down his GPA. We found Misha online, and things started getting easier after Tristan’s first session. He noted that Misha was able to teach him the same problems with a completely different approach that seemed to just click for him. I was worried that this was going to be a problem with testing because teachers like to see a certain type of work on the paper that corresponds to what is taught in the classroom; the standardized way to solve an equation. I brought this up with Misha and he was very receptive to my concerns. He took the time to explain to my why Tristan benefitted from the style of solving that he was teaching him, which is something that no teacher has taken the time to do with me before. Every kid’s mind works differently, and therefore some concepts that are received well by one student, may be very difficult to grasp for another. There are different ways to visualize problems and Misha was teaching a personalized curriculum to each of his clients; something else that teachers with 30 students don’t seem to be doing. I still wanted Tristan to be able to work the problem in the way that his textbook described, so Misha assured me that he would be able to get there with Tristan. Tristan used the methods that Misha was teaching to conceptually understand the math that he was learning. Misha also taught him how to apply that method that they worked on to what his teacher was using with all of the students. This is really what helped Tristan to keep up in class, and brought value to the time that he spent there as well, instead of just wasting time, confused, until he could get the one-on-one attention that he needed. Tristan can now look at an equation both ways, and choose which path is the most relevant to solve the problem with. This really gave him confidence and the actual drive to sit down and go through with a difficult problem, start to finish; a place I never thought we could reach at the beginning of the year. I cannot say enough positive praise about Misha. He has worked my son through the most difficult points of his education, and doesn’t leave without giving me a snapshot of their progress for the day. Tristan also really seemed to look up to Misha and turned to him for help with college applications, which he was more than happy to help out with. Tristan is off at Santa Clara now, and told me that he still reaches out to Misha when is he is stuck on a problem!! I have Misha’s personal number, and so does Tristan… that’s just the type of tutor he is. Needless to say, I will be sending this tutor a little something extra for Christmas this year.

Sylvia is tutoring my daughters in Spanish. They never had Spanish before, and when they moved to a new school, the level of Spanish is very advance for someone who never had the lessons. Sylvia works with them in getting them up to speed. In a short time, both my children had become comfortable in following the lesson at school, and I have noticed that both of them have made quite significant improvements. My oldest daughter tells me that once she is comfortable with her Spanish, she wants to start French with Sylvia. I am sure that if either of my kids need tutoring in Math, Sylvia would be the one we go to. If your child or children need extra help in academic, I HIGHLY RECOMMEND that you call Sylvia. My children are very happy with how she teaches. Sylvia is also opens to different approaches in teaching. If my kids want more challenge, all they have to do is tell Sylvia and she will give them challenging lessons.

In the beginning, I was really afraid of talking to others in English because I know that I can’t speak English well. However, after some lessons, I become more and more confident and fell in love with the lessons. I tried speaking to others and they answered me. This greatly encouraged me.
