I started taking lessons with Laura to resume my Spanish studies after a 6 year gap and to improve my Spanish conversation skills for travel purposes. I have benefited from her teaching style and learning approach greatly. Each lesson is focused on areas which I struggle and she incorporates reading, writing, and communication into each lesson. Nevertheless, success is still directly proportional to the time and effort I put into each lesson after class, however Laura has provided me with the resources and instruction necessary to learn the language. In the 6 or 7 classes I have had with her already my skills have improved, and I look forward to continue to study with her and advance my Spanish conversation skills over the coming year.
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!
A brilliant tutor and writer, she really inspired me to write stories and I have now published one and working on a second. Even better the lessons are really fun. You (or your child) can become a good author in so short a time I would not think is possible. Ben Crossley, aged 12
Don is one in a million. You won't find a more caring and enthusiastic tutor. He's been great at analyzing my daughters' deficiencies in math and adapting his lessons to match their individual learning style. I strongly recommend him.
Mr. Barraza has been my teacher for a couple of years. I took guitar classes with him in high school. He is just outstanding in all the work he does. The dedication he would give me as well as every other student would go above and beyond expectation. He is a very intelligent, noble, and caring person. He is fluent in both English and Spanish, and his thirst for knowledge is insatiable, so whether you want to study music, Spanish, math, reading, writing etc. Mr. Barraza would a great choice for you, truly a great teacher for all ages.
Jody was able to help my daughter so much in math and reading. Pammy was not reading well at all! I liked that Jody uses phonics to teach reading. I know Pammy was not getting phonics in school and it showed in her reading skills. Pammy is reading with very good comprehension and fluency! I am so proud! Jody started Pammy at a level she knew very well. The difficulty slowly increased and now Pammy is above grade level and is taking advanced math classes. We strongly encourage parents to contact Jody about tutoring their children. You won't go wrong. I guarantee it!
I am super excited to work with Carolina! She is personable and professional, she makes you excited to learn! I am looking forward to gaining a strong comprehension of the Spanish language in order to make my travels so much more on so many levels!
I appreciate Ann as an online tutor. Ann is a certified Reading Interventionist with a big heart for helping kids succeed in the area of reading. I met Ann through a group I created called The Ultimate Support Group for Online Tutors. She is always willing to help others, be of service, speak at conferences, and share her knowledge. I have had the opportunity to watch Ann teach lessons to kids through videos she has submitted to me, and I was impressed with how well she connected with her students and how effective she was as a tutor. You would have to be crazy not to hire Ann.
Dr. Heger has exceeded our expectations on so many levels. Our teenage daughter wanted to brush up on her french before returning to it in school, so we looked for a tutor and practiced using some computer based language lessons. First and foremost Dr. Heger has the most beautifully resonant voice. She speaks slowly, and richly. You can clearly hear the proper accent and pronunciation every time. The difference between her voice and any recorded practice is like night and day. And of course you get a much more natural back and forth with a real person. She is infinitely patient, or it is probably more accurate to say she obviously enjoys teaching. We started with an hour appt. and upped it to an hour and a half because my daughter said the time just "whipped by" and it was so fun. Really! A teenager in french class! Dr. Heger has a fascinating history and I am so grateful she has shared this with us. I thought we were getting a tutor but we stumbled on a true gem. We highly recommend her to anyone wanting to learn french for school, work or travel.
Mr. Morse is an excellent tutor. I have an eleventh grader that struggles with reading comprehension and writing. Mr. Morse started tutoring for us with very short notice and even read the book my nephew is reading in class, almost completely, by the first session (with only hours to prep). He has definitely helped my nephew understand what he is reading by relating it to what he knows and loves, (football, current events, etc) and inspires him to write better. Apprehensive at first, my nephew now looks forward to meeting with Mr. Morse and has a new found respect for language arts. We are fortunate he came along and glad we made the call. Thank you Mr. Morse, it is always a pleasure.
My daughter has been having difficulties with reading comprehension for years. Kaytlin was able to identify coping mechanisms which make it easier for my daughter to finally get it.

I am especially passionate about creative writing, and helping others articulate themselves in the simplest, most efficient way possible. I am also incredibly fond of yoga, and love nothing more than helping people (of any and all levels) to explore the practice, to find a bit of mental and physical release, and perhaps a bit of inner-calmness as well.
