Lisa-Beth is a great tutor and is teaching me business English and grammar lessons. Our first meeting was easy to schedule and she made me feel comfortable. Would highly recommend her to anyone wishing to learn quickly and correctly.

My son needed a tutor for his freshman year college English Composition class. Before hiring Carl, I had tried a couple of tutors, but didn't find them to be competent. Carl was a very pleasant surprise; he is both very knowledgeable and engages well with my son. I like the fact that he does't merely correct him and gives him answers, but makes him think and analyse the material. He is a rare find.

I am so thankful we found Jeff!!! We had worked previously with a different SAT tutor who clearly didn't know what he was doing. Although Jeff was priced higher than some of the other tutors on Thumbtack, I wanted to see if spending a little more would make a difference. It did - we just got the scores back, and my son raised his score by 400 points! I cannot recommend working with Jeff enough. My son loved having him come to the house. We will miss Jeff, but I hope others can have the type of experience we did. You won't regret it!

Daniel was very professional and went above and beyond to give the tutoring help I needed in a somewhat obscure math topic, which included him spending time researching and working through the problems before the tutoring session to ensure that he could answer all of my questions. I would recommend Daniel to anyone looking for a quality math tutor who invests himself in your success. Thanks again for all the help Daniel!!

We just recently hired Daniel. So far, he was exceptional at explaining his services and listening to my son's academic needs. We hired him in preparation for the ACT. Daniel is customizing the ACT tutoring in relation to our son's learning style. My son was very pleased with his first session with Daniel, and learned so much about strategies and the break down of the ACT, all in just one session. My son looks forward to continue working with Daniel.

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.

I am a professor of mathematics and the supervisor of the Math Tutoring Lab at Los Angeles Valley College. Reza is one of the best tutors I have met on any campus I have taught at including University of Utah, Cal State Los Angeles, and numerous community colleges. Reza has tutored at LA Valley College for the past 9 years. Overall he has tutored for 18 years. He is commonly the tutor I hear praised most often by my students. They tell me that not only is his mathematics excellent but he is very clear in his explanation and very supportive with his attitude. He makes my students want to do more math because he makes it very comprehensible for them. Reza tutors Algebra I, Algebra II, Trigonometry, Calculus and Statistics. He is the standard I hold up my other tutors to. He shows up on time, teaches very intuitively and my students walk away from each session with him feeling better about themselves. As a person, I find Reza to be a wonderful role model who volunteers many hours each week at the tutoring lab, teaching math to many students on campus.

Quite simply Esmeralda is a miracle worker. She is a one stop shop for all your needs. Highly qualified in every subject she is also an educational therapist and particularly effective with reluctant teenage boys. As a parent, you can take s breath of relief as she has the ability to organize and focus on exactly what the student needs extra help with. I have had many tutors but never have I experienced someone so extraordinary!

Rachel is the most incredible math tutor! With her help, I was able to bring my grade up from an F to a B. As a college student who still struggles with math, I was extremely frustrated until I began working with Rachel. She helped me gain a better understanding of mathematics overall. I am extremely grateful for her ability to teach me something I thought was impossible for me to learn.

Cindy Chanin understands the testing and admission process like no other. She has an extensive professional background and helped us navigate the high school admission process for our daughter, like a Ninja! Cindy invested her time and energy into our daughter and took it upon herself to get to know her. She was able to decipher what kind of learner she was and which of her tutors would be a good fit for her. For the weeks that we worked with Rainbow EDU, Cindy called everyday. She wanted feedback about the tutoring sessions and wanted our daughter to feel confident and empowered. Cindy is a student advocate and coach. Much, much more than a tutor. This is a full service operation...the real deal. Cindy Chanin...Rainbow EDU...I just lucked out...hope you do too!

I would highly recommend Great Expectations College Prep for anyone with a child planning to attend college!! I've had two daughters go through her program. From SAT/ACT prep to the college application process. Jennifer and her staff gave my girls the confidence and knowledge to take ownership of the college process. Jen and her staff gave all the tools my girls needed to do their best on their tests and guide them through the schools that best met all their needs. The entire process was VERY easy, without stress and my girls happy. I'll be using them for daughter no. 3 in a few years.

If you want the best of the best, Todd Frost is the tutor to hire. My sixteen year old son has been struggling with math since middle school. I have literally spent thousand of dollars on tutoring programs that didn't work. I wish I would have found Todd back then, but better late than never. Thanks to Todd, my son is now on track and feels more confident in his current Geometry class.

Nick strikes a great balance as a counselor and tutor. Though he's incredibly knowledgable in his field, he retains a certain approachability, a down to earth quality, that renders meeting with him simultaneously productive and enjoyable. I used to dread working on my college applications and studying for my ACT, but by being a tutor AND a friend, Nick made the whole process a lot less of a chore. With his help, i got into my dream program at New York University and am incredibly excited for the fall. College Prep and Education and general need more folks like Nick Soper.
