Nicole was outstanding! She helped our son raise his composite ACT score from a 20 to a 27 in only 7 weeks! As a senior, this was our son's last chance to raise his ACT score. Prior to the April test, we had enrolled him in 16 weeks of group classes; His math score only increased 1 point and reading increased 2. In less than half the time and for about half the money, Nicole helped AJ increase math by 7, reading and science by 8, and English by 5. She tailored the lessons to AJ's background and learning style. Her approachable manner and disarming personality immediately put AJ at ease -making it easier for him to learn. Nicole made herself available to answer questions at ALL times, day or night, which was unbelievably helpful! She is extraordinarily knowledgeable about both the ACT and new SAT. Regarding the entire college application process, she is a wealth of information and advice! We were so lucky that she was able to fit AJ into her packed schedule, and we will be forever grateful for everything she did for him and us!
AR is an outstanding tutor, she has been very compassionate and very helpful to my kids during their entire school year. She has been a great resource for my kids for English, Math, and science studies as well. I highly recommend her.
She taught me more about algebra in a day than i learned in 2 months of schooling. Her methods work really well.
At first I was very hesitant to try an "on line" tutor for my teenage son. I am so glad that we did as Gary was able to present the material in a very understandable and ENJOYABLE manner. He truly has a talent in relating to teenagers and teaching math with a " fun and easy" approach. My son's grades and attitude towards math both improved greatly! THANK YOU GARY!
We love working with Moises! After just two weeks of tutoring, my daughter said "Now I understand the mistakes I have been making in math and I also understand how to do it right next time. I am starting to like math." Moises knows how to teach so that the information goes from short term memory to long term memory. We also have my son taking guitar lessons with Moises. He loves it so much he has requested lessons twice a week. We feel fortunate to have found someone who can work effectively with a student with ADD and that is an overall great teacher and kind person.
We are pleased to provide a reference for Colleen Urban. Colleen tutored our daughter, Julia, at Basic Skills Tutoring in Seattle while Julia was in middle school and high school at The Northwest School (2006-2011). Colleen began as a math tutor but her role expanded, to providing help in organization, study skills, time management, and test preparation. Julia benefitted enormously from the assistance and counsel that Colleen provided. She helped Julia tackle algebra, geometry and calculus, as well as preparing for physics, chemistry, and biology exams. Colleen was always patient but firm with Julia. Their relationship was close and friendly. Julia never complained about going to tutoring and looked forward to her time with Colleen. As well as attending a challenging college prep school, Julia was a serious ballet dancer. Her after-school hours were often taken up with classes and rehearsals. Colleen was very flexible—always finding some time for Julia, even if it meant staying late—when she needed it. Colleen made a lasting impact on Julia’s life and academic career. Julia graduated from Bennington College, with a 3.8 GPA in 2015. She was extraordinarily successful in college and has made a great transition to life after college. Last year, she taught in a French high school. This year she is writing poetry as well as working full-time as she prepares to apply to graduate school. She tackles difficult projects with discipline and enthusiasm. She has the confidence to work independently and the patience to deal with the inevitable frustration that results from challenging herself. These were qualities that Colleen saw in Julia and worked hard to bring to the forefront. For this assistance and support, we continue to be very grateful to Colleen.
prepared for upcoming lessons that will be taught in the classroom, so that the student has a better understanding of the course material. I most definitely recommend Allison as a Physics tutor, and I plan on continuing to utilize her for tutoring throughout this summer 1 session at college and again next summer for Physics 2. Sarah
Kate has been working with my sons, now a junior and sophomore, since middle school in supplementing their math studies. When we first engaged Kate for tutoring they were both struggling in their math courses and especially exam preparation. Kate worked extremely well with the boys and they enjoyed the sessions. As a result, there was an improvement of *three* letter grades! In addition to being very knowledgeable in the material, Kate was very personable which helped my sons really (and quickly) make immediate gains in the subject matter. Kate also helped my youngest son with college placement testing preparation. As a direct result of her help, he was able to enter college at the age of 15 without the need for remedial or introductory coursework. Kate has been reliable, punctual, and generally awesome across the board, We highly (highly) recommend her.
I have an ability to listen and really listen to understand the students needs. Once we find a common ground, I work with the student as a team to understand their question and challenges with the material, Math for example. Then I drill down to find how I will help and we build a method the student understands and which will solve their challenges. Then we practice and break down the method until ANY problem in Math will be solved by the algorithm or step by step method the STUDENT has developed with my listening and guide. Then the student owns the method and has something solid on paper to take home and practice on other problems and homework until the student is confident and prepared for the exam and final exam. The student will receive the help from me to succeed in their Math or other coursework to achieve the grade they desire. I will share with them the tools to succeed in ALL exams.
