Lisabeth helped me with my ACT writing skills and with the reading and science sections. We did 2 hour sessions. The quality of her work was great and she helped me a lot with the ACT and helped me calm down before my test. My experience with her was great and I will definitely contact her in the future.
Carl was hired to teach Hebrew to my daughter who is in Kindergarten as well as to teach my husband and I Hebrew. Carl is a very dedicated professional that has a true gift at teaching. He makes the lessons fun and teaches in a way that keeps the learner engaged the entire lesson and always excited about learning more. This would not normally be an easy task while teaching a 5 year old, however Carl makes it look easy. Our daughter looks forward to Carls's weekly visits, as do we. Carl even went out of his way to find a special Hebrew educational book for my husband (who already speaks pretty decent Hebrew- but wanted to learn more). I would highly recommend Carl for any tutoring, writing, or editing services you may need.
Lois is a very professional and considerate tutor. She is helping my writing skill and accent. In addition, she has a producer background and share her knowledge and expertise. She teaches me the entertainment business cultures and how to be a strong female producer in US. She is not just an English teacher. She loves to motivate and inspire her students. I highly recommend her.
I had Bri as a math tutor for the ACT. She was funny, professional, and very knowledgeable. I wanted to get my score up 4 points, and with her help, I was able to on practice tests. I would highly recommend this service, especially Bri, if you're looking for any kind of tutoring--standardized test or school subject. Thank you, Bri!
Good tutor! My child likes the way she works with him
My son is on the spectrum, and i thought it would be almost impossible to find someone who has the passion and understanding of how unique a kid with any LD could be. I am pleased to say that we couldn't of found a better tutor than Mrs. Erin. She's wonderful! I've observed and listened to some of her teaching/tutoring techniques. I really like how she fully explains and goes over tutoring assignments with my son. Her patience,dedication and ability to help not only my son but many other students amazes me! I can really look forward to a great outcome from his tutoring sessions. Im sure academic skills that are needed to be successful are going to be met! Thank you Club Z tutoring for having such amazing tutors!!! I would definitely recommend to any of my friends or to whom ever is looking for a tutor!
Daniel Dissinger helped me with college application essays on multiple occasions. He personally came to my house and would spend 1-2 hours helping me perfect my papers. Daniel would sit read my paper and go line by line with me to try to make every sentence more concise and persuasive. He was very good at teaching me how to prevent writing mistakes in the future as well. Daniel is also very responsive to email and is willing to help via email. I would highly recommend him to anyone needing a writing tutor.
Cindy is an absolute visionary. I am a senior in high school, and I met Cindy a few months before I began this school year. My strengths academically are mainly in reading, writing, social studies, and philosophy, but Cindy has enhanced my knowledge and appreciation for mathematics, science, and my capabilities in problem solving as a whole. When I first met Cindy, I was in desperate need of a math tutor, but what I received was more than I could have ever imagined. Aside from her outstanding mathematical capabilities, Cindy has served as my mentor, ultimate problem solver, entrepreneurial guru, and ultimate inspiration throughout my college prep and application process. As a fellow performer, and actress, Cindy also has helped me explore my passion for theatre, and expand it to become a flourishing intrigue with anthropology, psychology, and motivational speaking. She is literally the reason that I am now travelling as a motivational speaker/ Body Positive facilitator to youth, ranging from middle school to high school. In offering her invaluable time, ambitious mindset, and incredibly compassionate demeanor, she has allowed me to find my true passions, and encourage others to do the same. Furthermore, Cindy is beyond this world amazing. Whether to call her an angel, an oracle, a goddess, a reincarnated Albert Einstein, or any other form of awe, I am not worthy to concretely say. However, I can attest that Cindy has absolutely changed my vision for myself and the world around me, my societal views and aspirations, as well as having enhanced my mathematical and test taking capabilities. Truly, Cindy is the most wonderful, kind, creative, talented, and intelligent essence, one could ever hope to meet or aspire to become.
Barbara is working with my granddaughter and her reading . We have seen vast improvement in a very short time . My granddaughter looks forward to the weekly sessions I would highly recommend her.
Elenie Opffer, the Writing Coach, was nothing but WONDERFUL! I have not one negative thing to say. PLEASE PLEASE PLEASE know that this is a real life review. I often wonder when I read reviews but this is REAL. I recently decided to leave my current job as a Superintendent/Principal of a small school district and wanted to start applying for new positions. The applications need to be submitted quickly and I had no time to compose the needed letters of introduction and update and revise my resume. I started looking at places on line that could help me. I had five different hits on Thumbtack and decided to go with "The Writing Coach". I am happy to say that I will keep Elenie's number in my contacts for years to come. I simply sent her my most current resume (out of date), letters of recommendations that people wrote about me, and job descriptions of what I wanted to apply for. She - painstakingly went through all of my materials and developed a BEAUTIFUL resume and cover letters that spoke to who I really am. I was SHOCKED how well she described me with never even meeting me. We did all of this on-line and through phone conversations. She is simply amazing. Her price is VERY FAIR! We go to writers because we ourselves are not confident in our own abilities. Writing is a skill and she has it!!! She was extremely fair with her hours and pricing. I will surely use her again in the future. SHE ROCKS!
I hired Maryam for two semesters to teach Freshman composition at The Master's University. During both courses, I've found her to be adept at understanding student writing needs and at clearly communicating them to the student in a patient, lively and kind manner. Her approach is personal because she firmly believes (through training and personal experience) that teaching writing is most effective one-on-one. At all points, Maryam is an intuitive teacher, who achieves a fine balance of kindness and professionalism. I highly recommend her! -Esther
Michael has been an invaluable English tutor for our son. He was able to artfully help our son with his college essay, guiding him through the writing process while making sure the essay was in our son's own words. Our son was accepted into his first choice college, partly based on this essay. Even after our son's freshman year of college, Michael continues to be available to tutor him. Michael has delved deeply into understanding our son's writing challenges, identifying specific steps to help him get on the right track. With his insight and gentle manor, Michael has connected well with our son, allowing him to be a very effective tutor. Michael is very responsive and flexible, providing sessions on Skype when our son needs them. Michael has proven to be a top-notch writing tutor for our son.
Heather has been fantastic and insightful - I'm so very happy I've hired Heather.
Evan began working with our daughter to prep for the ISEE High School Placement Test. He was patient and very structured in attacking the materials that needed to get covered for her test prep. They made very good progress and she improved significantly in understanding how to take the test and the materials. She ended up with very good scores on her test. In the process of working with our daughter, we asked if he could help with our 5th grade son who struggles with reading comprehension. He began working with our son in helping him develop a better understanding of what he is reading. My son has improved since working with Evan and is enjoying reading much more than before he started working with Evan.
Anna was super supportive and helped my daughter excel in her reading. She's extremely organized and keeps you informed on everything that is going on with your child. Anna is well worth the investment.
I have extensive experience working with students of different ages and from different backgrounds, including those for whom English is a second or third language. I understand the common fears students have about their ability to write, and I can help students get past their fears to discover that they already possess most of the skills they need simply by being able to speak the English. I love watching the lights come on in a student's eyes when he or she grasps a new concept or attains a goal. I enjoy helping students communicate their ideas and feelings more effectively.
I work in small groups, 1-4, and teach listening, speaking, reading, grammar and pronunciation. I have spent many years teaching English in Thailand, China, Cambodia, Canada and the USA. I have worked with 4- to 55-year-old students from primary school to university.

In high school, I excelled in math and was always asked to tutor any student who either didn't understand or missed the assignment. This was as much a skill as my patience. I then went on to UCLA as an English major and received my BA. I ended my education with an MA in Counseling Psychology. I opened a practice but closed it once I had my kids. I have been a mother for 10 years now and an aide or volunteer at their school for the last six. I have decided to start tutoring elementary-aged kids in math and reading. That is where I have found the need to be of the most assistance and of the most help.
