Namzi was a great and attentive tutor. He explained everything thouroughly and went through my math step by step. I ended up getting a 87 on my algebra 2 final thanks to him!
I needed some help with algebra in 8th grade. My parents had heard of Jeremy from a friend, so we got in touch and he started tutoring me. Jeremy is an excellent tutor. He helped me with my Algebra and all of my other subjects. He has a vast array of knowledge in all subjects ranging from Algebra to History. On top of that, Jeremy taught me what was important to focus on. He helped me prepare for the SAT and showed me how important it was. I went on to do excellent on it. This is what separates him from other tutors. He informs you of things that will be important in the future even when it has nothing to do with what you are learning in class. All the while, Jeremy is friendly and down to earth. It felt like a friend or family member was tutoring me. I truly couldn't give him high enough praise.
Great time with Sasha learning pre algebra, I know it doesn't make sense, but she is really great at making math much more clear. She helped me achieve a very good score on my CUNY entrance exams.
Kamil is a wonderful GRE tutor! He has helped me prepare for the quantitative portion for the GRE. Kamil is willing to answer all questions and is helping me learn math skills as well as some useful tips for the GRE exam. I am confident that my score will improve significantly with Kamil's help!
I have always hated math and have memories of being yelled at to finish my homework and being in tears because I simply did not understand it. This fear of math started in elementary school and carried itself all the way to college where I had to start in remedial math courses. I now am in the process of studying for a big test and needed help to develop the skills needed to do well on the math portion. Peter was able to simplify the process so that I could better understand this basic math. He never made me feel bad when I had to count with fingers, yikes! I feel I have improved greatly in just the 2 sessions we've had. I'm very excited to improve even more! Who knew I'd come to be excited for a math lesson! Thank you Peter.
Are you looking for a math tutor who is well prepared for each lesson, who is a math genius, who is clearly passionate about teaching and who really cares whether his students are making progress? Well, you have found him in Aron G. from Spring Valley, NY! I was having difficulty with trigonometry. The support I was receiving in my private school was very limited, but I still wanted to take the Regent. I had moved several times during my elementary schooling and then skipped a grade, which didn't exactly help my math background. I had worked with several private tutors on trigonometry for months to prepare for the Regent. No improvement. In fact, I was feeling less and less confident that I would be able to master the subject. It seemed like I wasn't fitting into the cookie cutter. Then I started to work with Mr. G. At our first class, I couldn't believe how well prepared he was. He had written his own outline of the topic for our lesson. He provided a broad overview of the topic at hand, which made sense to me. He showed me some examples. Then he had me doing problems on my own--and I could! Working with Mr. G. for several weeks really made me feel like I would be able to pass the Regent. Mr. G. built on my strengths. But he also quickly identified my weaknesses. We zeroed in on gaps that I had in my mathematics background. It turns out that though I was missing some basics, I actually have somewhat of a facility for trigonometry. Once Mr. G. helped me to close the gaps and acquire the missing basics, I was able to do the trigonometry. Now I not only feel good about trigonometry, but I feel good about math in general. I am so happy and grateful to have found such a great tutor and great teacher in Aron G. from Spring Valley, NY.
My son has already benefited significantly working with his new math tutor. Sam has been very knowledgable, flexible, responsive, and patient. We look forward to our ongoing work with her!
I came across Dave Markham on a recommendation from a fellow parent and hired him to tutor my elder son in math. In Geometry he raised his grade from a D+ to an A-, quite a feat! He always showed up exactly on time and was uber reliable, conscientious and fabulous. He brought all his own computer gear and teaching techniques. We used him for 4 years from 9th through 12th grades, tutoring in Algebra 1+2, Geometry, Trig and Calculus. We also used him for Chemistry. My younger son is now tutoring with him via his online system, rather than in person. It works great too, his grade having gone from a C to an A. Dave is honest and hardworking and really helps the kids understand the subject matter. We are so grateful for him. I highly recommend him with the utmost enthusiasm. If you can get Dave, you're really lucky.
We love Lisa! She tutored my son in math and science. His grades greatly improved as did his confidence. Lisa made herself even more available during the regents exams. I would highly recommend Lisa for tutoring your child.
Ridhi has given three Algebra lessons to my ninth grader so far. From my observation, Ridhi has the knowledge and the right skills in this area. I am waiting for the school test scores to see the actual results.
Jenny is a highly professional and talented tutor. She worked with my children from grades 6-12 in math, physics and chemistry. Her patience and guidance was tremendous.
My son has benefited in more ways than I can count because of Michelle. He has become more organized and is learning an advanced curriculum in math. She is a dedicated teacher and always makes sure my child's learning comes first. My son has improved his math skills in a short time and is now scoring 90+ on his quizzes and exams. She gives me a summary of every lesson and explains what my son has been learning and what he can improve on. Overall, Michelle is a excellent role model and plays a pivotal role in my son's life.
I hired Robert after reading his tutoring philosophy. My son, a consistent high honor roll student, was struggling with 10th grade algebra 2/ trigonometry honors. After the second semester assessment said he was in danger of failing we knew he wasn't going to catch up on his own. I had no idea how to find a tutor and stumbled on Thumbtack. Robert's breadth of knowledge, not just trig, is quite remarkable. He is a gifted teacher. He quickly assessed my sons deficiencies and set out to bring him up to speed. Over the next several weeks, with weekly sessions, Robert would assign my son work and explain the topics in a way that that he finally started to get it. The next step in their relationship was that Robert convinced my son that if he put in the work he was capable of much more than just getting by. Robert has never tried to "sell" us more sessions, there were weeks where he felt he wasn't needed and we would skip those weeks. The end result was a 96 on the Regents. Quite a turnaround for a student who was failing in January and was hoping to just get a passing grade on the Regents. Won't hesitate to bring him back into our home for any future challenges my son may face.
John helped me prepare for the ACT. He was very professional. He would send email reminders a day before our session, he would make the sessions fun. After he would send a follow up email explaining what we did during the session and what I needed to work on for tbr next session. He made the test prep easy. He was vert calm and patient, and that helped me to feel more comfortable.
There are not enough superlatives to describe how wonderful Carlos Juarez is! He has been tutoring our now 11 year old son for 2 years. Our son comes home from a long day at school and can't wait to begin his tutoring session with Carlos. He has learned a tremendous amount during each session and, most importantly, he has gained the confidence to attack the most challenging of math problems, due to the way Carlos approaches his tutoring. He offers suggestions, solutions, and challenges our son's mind so that he can manage the math work on his own. Carlos has tremendous resources to target lessons to our son's needs. There is not anything more we could have wanted from our tutoring experience. Anyone who works with Carlos, has been given a GIFT! Good Luck and Enjoy.
My daughter has been getting Math tutoring from Matt Sullivan for two years. Matt is an ideal tutor. He is very patient, he can explain a concept several different ways until a student understands. Some tutors take too active of a role in "helping" with homework , which does not result in good test scores. My daughter started out as a struggling C student in Geometry and is now getting As in Algebra 2 at a very demanding prep school. Matt's approach is very low key and he helps build a student's confidence level , which is a key to good test taking.
Mr. Weckessar has been teaching Spanish and Latin to my son who is in middle school, for last two years. Before that he had tutored my older son in high school for 2 years. Ron is an excellent teacher and brings a lot of energy and intensity in his teaching. He is very organized in his teaching methods and follows a study plan; at the same time he closely follows the school curriculum and works with the student so they are in sync with their class work. Ron is very knowledgeable and teaches almost the entire weeks curriculum of the school in one lesson. He not only teaches the grammar aspect of the language but also perfects the spoken word and converses in Spanish during the lessons. Recently, my son won a gold medal in the National Spanish Championship and I credit Ron for teaching him. Ron is always available to answer questions from students, even on phone. Ron is one of the most accomplished and dedicated teachers I have seen. I recommend him highly and he will be a positive addition to your team.
