Carl was referred to us by a very happy, satisfied student. He has been tutoring my Junior daughter in Algebra 2. She has always been challenged in Math and saves all homework till last. Carl has been a "spark" in getting her to not "hate" it so much. He comes prepared, energetic and dedicated to gaining a clear understanding of the topic, while interjecting humor into this very dry subject. Carl has been instrumental in my daughters improved Algebra 2 grade! Hurray!
We started using Mike's services when we switched elementary schools last September. Our son was just beginning Common Core and we wanted to make sure he could keep up with the rest of the class as he is one of the youngest kids. Mike's lessons on basic math skills--such as place value, equations, counting money and telling time--have been an invaluable part of our son's academic success. Mike also makes math fun and interesting for our son--so much so that he looks forward to Mike's visits. He is friendly and knowledgeable and easy to schedule. We want to note that we had tried another tutor last summer. In the 12 weeks we used her (multiple times each week), our son did not progress much at all. That was the main reason we looked around for another tutor. (That and the fact that our son was starting to hate math.) Instead of multiple weekly sessions, it's one weekly in-depth session. Mike's background, skills and experience as a tutor are clearly evident. We highly recommend him.
Helped with difficult math classes in high school
We chose Elite and were so happy we did! My son struggled in math and he needed more support than the school offered. College prep is tough, I couldn't even help him! Haha Well, we called Elite and Eric matched him up with Tony. We liked that Tony came to our house for a free session before I had to commit to ordering sessions. I always wondered how that worked so you know your kid will for sure like the tutor and want to learn! We're very pleased, thanks again.
Daniel tutored me for about 8 weeks, 2-3 times a week for the GRE. He was friendly, knew his stuff, and definitely helped me to remember my high school math from over 5 years ago. Great tutoring experience!
It was a simple job. Six grade math. Most tutors either gave us the runaround or just didn't call us back. Eric at elite made sure we were satisfied from the first free trial to the session before my daughters test. Very well done
I had really needed a tutor for College Calculus I, and was lost somewhere in the second chapter. I found Club Z, and contacted Mary Beth. She knew exactly which tutor I needed, and I met with him twice a week for an entire semester. I had no teacher, since this was an online course, and Mike, my tutor, had no problem teaching me the material since he knew it very well already, and I ended up getting a great grade in a class that I thought was hopeless. Highly recommend Club Z for any math class up to (and beyond) college level math.
Rachel helped fine tune my mathematic skills. She was patient and went on my pace while working with me. Her challenges were within my zone of proximal development. Each lesson, I acquired a valuable skill. I was able to place into Statistics with her help and I highly recommend her to students who want math tutoring. Her rates are fair and she makes tutoring personal for her student to achieve his goal.
I struggled with math all my life and entering college I wanted to break the cycle. I started working with Mazi two hours a week and I have never been more confident in my ability to solve word problems. He is the best! I definitely recommend him!
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.
We were in a panic situation! Grades where being posted the following week, and my son needed to bring them up! I explained to Ray my son's teacher would allow him to retake a test to improve his score, and Ray sprang into action! The following day, he arrived at our house in the evening and went straight to work, asking my son detailed questions regarding what the test was on, examining my son's math work, and what parts he was having trouble with. Ray stayed for nearly two hours that night, and returned the following day to cover a few more problems, and review the previous nights work. He also gave my son a lesson on how to use his scientific calculator. I have Ray on speed-dial now. He's our goto guy for High School math now! I would also consider him for College level mathematics after my son graduations. Ray knew how to by-pass, breakdown and explain Common-Core math problems. His professional attitude was refreshing, his knowledge of math impressive, but his ability to interface with my son, make him feel comfortable, and instill confidence is priceless! Thanks Biggerstaff! Job well done!
Me being a high school student taking AP classes is a difficult challenge. This was especially true when sophomore year came around when I took AP Biology and thought it would be easy. I was proven wrong when those first few grades came and AP was not looking good. I knew and my mom knew that we need help. That's when we found Fred. I can say that this experience truly helped me a lot. After a while I began to actually understand the material which was proven on how my AP grade improved. If someone were to ask me who would I recommend for tutoring then Fred is the person you are searching for. One thing you can sure expect is be preapered to work hard and give your all.
Our 2 daughters have been tutored by Badoyen Academics for upper level math and ACT preparations. It has been really important for us to have a female math teacher as a role model for them and she communicates the concepts in a way that the students will understand. Both of my girls did well in math because of her and both of them actually loved math because of her. Our older daughter is currently at Carleton College and the younger one is preparing for her ACTs. I cannot thank her program enough. It brings a little peace of mind to parents! I cannot recommend them enough!!! - Prins Family
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.
Mr. Klaif was the Director of an after school program that my son attended throughout elementary and middle school (he will be entering college in the fall). Mr. Klaif engaged the kids in activities that were mentally and physically challenging. His interaction with kids is awesome! My son thrived under Mr. Klaif's care. I would highly recommend his services!!
My name is Anthony and I'm in grade 7. Sarajane has helped me a lot with my algebra becouse I'm moving to a different country and skipping a grade. Her lessons are amazing and I learned a lot. With her I am confident I will excell at math in my new school.
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.
Having worked with Ms. Coleman for ten years, I know she is an effective and successful teacher. She communicates well with her students and takes great pride in their subsequent achievements. Ms. Coleman, an accomplished professional with integrity and passion, is a dependable, competent, and highly recommended teacher. Her areas of expertise are math and computer science. D. Morton, English Teacher (31 years)
Purvi did an excellent job guiding my elementary and high school students!
Amy was AWESOME!!! She was able to help my Freshman bring up her grade in less than 2 weeks time. She was patient and worked well with my daughter. She took her time and stayed longer than she had to. My daughter stated "she is soooo much better at teaching me than my regular math teacher". We are so happy with her and will continue to use her in the future. Thanks Amy!!!!
Edward was a fantastic tutor. My son needed some help in an advanced Calculus course in high school so we hired Edward to help him. Edward came well dressed and well prepared to help. He was cordial, on time, and was very knowledgeable about the material. My son was relieved as he was polite but also very comfortable to talk to. They got along well and my son ended up getting A’s for both semesters in Calculus. I highly recommend Edward and Exclusive Review!
