I hired Jeremy to tutor me in the ACT. I contacted him planning for to get at least a 30 on the ACT. I am now aiming for a 34 on my next ACT due to Jeremy's tutoring. He has been exceeding my expectations in the way he deconstructs the test and makes doing well on it so much easier. In addition, he serves as my college adviser, and I have finally been given some good direction in the complex college process. Right now, I am looking into high level schools like multiple Ivy League schools, WashU in St. Louis, Vanderbilt, Tufts, and Bucknell. Also, he is very flexible with scheduling and very personal with students and family. Highly recommended!
We have recently hired Dr. Fikar and Harvard Review as SAT/ACT tutors for my son. Thus far they have been prompt and very professional. Dr. Fikar is a great motivator and seems to have invaluable knowledge of the test and how to get great results. We are at the start of our training but we already feel that we have made a great choice. He is fast to reply and easy to work with. And most importantly, my son if fired up to do well.
Peter has been tutoring my 17yr son. My son is very comfortable with Peter and has already (after four sessions) strengthened his math skills. My son has some learning difficulties and math, especially has been challenging for him. Peter is not only tutoring but, actually teaching my son new skills. My son has always had a very negative relationship with math but, now it seems he is finally breaking through his fear and embracing learning. We are thankful we found such an awesome teacher/tutor. Thanks Peter!
Amazing. From tutoring and teaching a helpless senior succeed by getting a great score on her SATs and finally gaining her diploma. I couldn't have asked for a better more dedicated and committed person to help me get through my senior year.
Eve was an outstanding tutor for the ISEE. We hired her with just 6 weeks to go until the test - we had been using a New Haven-based tutoring company that just was not doing the job - in that very short period of time Eve managed to coach our daughter from the middle of the pack (ISEE steniles 4 and 5) toward the top (stiles 6 and 7). Plus she was very flexible about scheduling and was amenable to meeting our daughter in New Haven. We only wish we'd enlisted her sooner! We will definitely seek her assistance for our next set of test preps!
Jeremy currently provides precalc tutoring for my son. Without prompting I hear from Josh that Jeremy makes it fun, interesting and that the time passes quickly. Grades are improving significantly as a result of the time and effort from Jeremy. He is prompt, answers questions immediately and will easily schedule around the needs of my son. Can't thank him enough.
Dr. V has been so helpful in his tutoring. He has impressive credentials and a passion for French. We appreciate all he has done.
i have used Professor Korn in tutoring my son for his college course. My son was averaging a D+ in the course before we hired Professor Korn. Within a few weeks, my son finished his course with an A-. Professor Korn was an excellent tutor and I highly recommend him to others. In addition, we are still using his services for my son's next class.
Erik has a way of evaluating what needs to be accomplished and has the knowledge and skill in order to execute it. He has terrific interpersonal skill making me feel as though I am helpless after 24 years of not doing any algebra whatsoever. I give Erik 5 stars, if you need a tutor, he's the man!
Hallie just began tutoring my 22 year old son in college-level chemistry. They established a good connection and he feels she can help him to get through the year successfully.
Doug worked great with my son. He was able to explain the questions, and break them down into a way for him to understand them better for the SAT's. Doug is a great tutor.
Tristan tutored my son for his SAT's and did a fabulous job. My son was not confident when he first took them and he had not studied. I felt that for him to have a chance at a higher score he needed one on one tutoring. Even though Tristan resided in Connecticut and my son in Long Island, Tristan took the challenge and tutored my son via Skype. Xavier recently took the SAT's again in January and his score were raised over 100 points. Tristan only tutored my son for six weeks. I wonder how many more points my son would of raised his score if he had been tutored by Tristan longer. I attribute my son 's success to Tristan and his patience and diligence with my son. He was always on time and professional. He provided written reports after each session and kept me abreast of what he would target with Xavier to improve his scores. I am very happy that I chose Tristan to tutor my son. His prices were very reasonable and he was knowledgeable and kind towards my son. I recommend him and his organization to anyone he wants to help their child succeed. So far my son has been admitted to two private colleges and he has received grants. Thank you Tristan!

Laura was so great. Our 9th grader needed last minute help prepping for a Geometry midterm. Laura was super-responsive and engaged, and made time for us the day after we posted our Thumbtack ad. She was able to work through all of the prep packet in a way that made it MUCH clearer than our daughter's teacher had. We are so grateful.
Michael is a nice tutor, he helped me a lot. As an international student, literature is so hard for me. He is so patient to correct my pronunciation. And also, he always use some easy word to express a complex sentence meaning to me. I improved a lot because of his help.
Kathy is a kind, patient and dedicated tutor who has really helped reduce my daughter's math anxiety even as she improved her performance. Thanks Kathy!
Ken Cyprus was my math tutor from eighth grade to senior year of high school. While all other subjects came easily to me, math was a difficult subject for me, and it was holding me back from having the high GPA I could have. With Ken's tutoring, I was always the highest performing student in my math class and never worried about my GPA being impacted by math again. Throughout the years, certain math teaching styles wouldn't work for me, and I struggled with the material, but Ken never let me give up. He worked not only on my math aptitude but also my confidence and I became a more engaged math student. Ken would give me test problems, help me study, and create material catered to my specific weaknesses so that by the time a test came, I could do it on my own. He was also able to help me score higher than I ever thought I could on the SAT. Now, as I go into my senior year of Barnard College and am getting ready to graduate with both a degree from an Ivy League institution and that of an elite liberal arts college, I look back with immense gratitude for Ken. I couldn't have gotten here without him.
I highly recommend Jacquelyn Poarch. She has been an excellent and effective German tutor for my son and has made a real impact in his proficiency in the language. She is knowledgeable, friendly, professional, and a pleasure to know and work with.
Working with Justine has been a great help for my daughter. She has gained confidence as a math student and Justine really understands her strengths and weaknesses. My daughter loves working with her and the support she provides her.
Marina tutored my 5th grade son in Math over the past year. She made learning Math fun and came up with engaging ways to help him master the concepts he was having trouble with. His Math scores and confidence in Math improved and he really enjoyed working with her. Marina was very dependable and punctual and I would highly recommend her as a tutor.
