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 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.
I have been learning so much from Lois regarding test strategies for the GRE. Her method is unlike any I have practiced and I actually feel I can tackle the GRE now!
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!
Jeff helped prep my extremely dyslexic daughter prep for a standardized pass/fail test. I was very doubtful she would be able to pass -- but thanks to Jeff, she did! Thanks, Jeff!!!!
Daniel is an interactive tutor who is very helpful with any calculus problems you have. He helped me study for my math test by going through problems step by step with me, which allowed me to understand the concepts at hand. He made sure that I actually understood the process by asking me questions, so it wasn’t only memorization but actual grasping of the way to solve problems. I definitely recommend Daniel to anyone who would like help with their calculus!
needed prep for my final, I did well thanks to the tutoring
Receiving tutoring for GMAT test prep. Steve is very friendly, knowledgeable, and gives solid, realistic advice. Will definitely recommend to all of my friends/anyone who needs a great tutor!
Called Daniel to help me at the last minute get ready for a statistics test. He met me the next morning and really helped me understand some concepts I was struggling with, especially word problems and figuring out which equations should be used. He was great to work with and really knows his stuff! Highly recommend him for math tutoring!!
Great teacher, very knowledgeable and professional. Esmeralda helped my daughters with understanding SAT test concept, time saving tips and strategies to raise their score. We are very pleased with her and look forward to continuing tutoring with her in the future. I highly recommend her.
Rachel is a fantastic and brilliant math tutor. I hadn't taken a math class in about 23 years and wanted to pass my placement exam out of intermediate algebra to go directly into statistics. I knew I could recall a lot of the concepts if I had a good guide to help me quickly get an understanding. We met at various libraries for our sessions depending on where I was working on those days and times. She was patient, quickly understood without completely disregarding my seemingly far fetched goals, and helped me get through any challenging areas in a way that made it very clear. She has a way of making math "fun and sweet" like I had never previously realized it could be/is. I had 3 sessions with her (2 hrs, 3 hrs, 2 hrs) over the course of one week and passed my test by that Friday. When I started in my statistics class, I recommended her to anyone that was anticipating having any trouble with the class. If I have any trouble with math classes in the future, I know exactly who to call; she is the best! I'm so grateful to Rachel for her support and encouragement.
I'm seventeen years old and took the new 2016 SAT test for the first time. My score was significantly lower than my GPA would indicate. I had several offers from tutors to assist in improving my SAT score. After reading the reviews and talking with several people, I choose to work with Sarah. I have had multiple sessions with her this summer. I highly recommend Sarah to be your tutor. She has a very pleasant personality and always makes sure you understand the current concept before moving on to another. She is very understanding of your schedule and will do whatever she can to work with you. I am ending my sessions only because to my pleasant surprise I have been offered an athletic scholarship after my senior year that will accept my current gpa and current SAT as completely satisfactory.
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.
..............I want to mention that Dr. G is an amazing tutor. I know we had a tough time in the beginning finding someone who could handle tutoring AP Physics, but when we finally found Dr. G, he was a God send. Avery scored a 4 on the AP Physics test and an A in the class. Thanks for all your help!!! Dana Schroeder
Before working with Marissa, I had worked with many tutors over the years for different subjects. I worked with Marissa for SAT prep and college apps. I can honestly say that she was so dedicated, fun, hardworking, and accessible. She answered many of my questions over phone and text whenever I needed her-even going the extra mile by working out a problem on her wipe board and texting a picture of it to me during her personal time. She genuinely cares about her students.. and it shows. Her program is rigorous but she gets results! My family has recommended her to many of our friends and we will continue to sing her praises.
I was not passing my college math course towards the end of the semester and had no idea what to do. We had one more test left and a final and needed to pass my math test! My old tutor was very impatient with me and couldn't deal with him anymore cause he was obviously not helping. So I found George the day BEFORE my test and he was by far the best tutor/ math teacher I have ever had in my life! He basically taught me the whole entire chapter in just a few hours. Not only did I pass my test, but I got a 96 which was incredible considering I had D average scores. He literally did a miracle cause I have never got an A on any math test. I still cannot believe I passed my math class he is seriously amazing and super nice!! Couldn't have done any of that without him
Lola's SAT math prep tutoring was excellent. Her teaching style is patient, encouraging, insightful, and informative.
Ray is a fantastic math tutor. He connected with my twins immediately and has helped then make huge strides in algebra in a few sessions. No only have their test scores greatly improved, but so has their self confidence in the subject and now they actually like math! I am beyond impressed with his professionalism and his ability to get kids excited about learning. I highly recommend him.
Very helpful and did everything to set up a session that worked with me schedule.Very professional with quick responses.Would recommend the following to students seeking help preparing for a test!
After a couple less-than-stellar tutoring experiences via Thumbtack, I feel incredibly fortunate to have found Sol. My tutoring needs were somewhat unusual: after a 10-year hiatus, I needed to reacquaint myself with high school math in order to pass a placement test into a college-level calculus I course. Far easier said than done. Sol was up for the challenge, and knew just how to tackle it. After I had diligently dug out of my old textbooks from my parents' garage, Sol offered an anecdote about his dear friend and and former Cal-Tech college roommate when he was confronted with modern-day high school math. (Sol, you see, is not only an incredibly savvy tutoring professional, but also a retired JPL scientist--and a thoroughly interesting, thoughtful and personable man to boot.) As Sol's anecdote helped to illustrate, the scope of high school math has evolved in recent years, in ways even the former president of Hughes Aerospace, in a moment of complacency, would fail to appreciate. Pre-Calculus theses days focuses much more on the interpretation of graphs, and introduces concepts such as solving and plotting the inverse of linear and fractional equations, which wasn't even taught when I took the course circa 2000. At Sol's request, we set aside my old textbooks in favor of modern coursework that he provided. It was a few months later, at our last lesson, that I was able to truly appreciate how much Sol cares about his students. In his office, I happened to glance at a computer window where Sol had a folder with my name and files charting 'Goals', 'Progress' and 'Notes'. Sol's hard work and investment in my success paid off: on my placement test I scored a 98%--surpassing the score I had needed for calculus I and placing me into calculus II! As Sol predicted, the test had focused quite extensively on those more modern facets of pre-calculus that he had taught me. Now in calculus II, I feel utterly prepared, and only have Sol to thank. *Highly* recommended.
I have been getting tutored with Tutisto for a little over three years now! I always struggled with math and going to Pali High a school with an awful math department eager to make kids hate math. I was lost, and my hate for math only grew after my first year of math at Pali and it reflected in my grade. It wasn't that I hated math, it was more how it made me feel; stupid and dumb. Tutisto provided me with a very qualified tutor that taught me the information in a technique that was personal for me, something that public school lacks. After three plus years I can confidently say i no longer hate math and feel confident taking my college placement test! Never in a million years would I ever think that I could say something like that! During my senior year, I struggled with processing research papers and certain books, so Tutisto provided me with another very qualified tutor that is able to help me in a very personal way perfect for my learning style! I am beyond thankful for Tutisto as they have made an everlasting impact on my life!
