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.
Kamil is an excellent tutor. We found Kamil through this website in our efforts to find a tutor for the SAT preparation. Our focus was on the Math portion of SAT. Kamil is a real professional and has the ability to adapt his teaching to the student. What I mean specifically is that while reviewing concepts and problems he was very flexible in providing multiple explanations to solving problems. I really appreciated the manner in which he was able to connect with my 17 year-old daughter and in my conversations with her she felt confident in his instruction and the value he added. She has found that his tutoring for the SAT has been helpful in her schoolwork as well. I would strongly recommend you reach out to Kamil if you or your child are looking for tutoring that will provide significant help in achieving higher scores. I would absolutely use Kamil again if I were in the market for a tutor for my child.
I am a post high school student and I worked with peter for about a month preparing for sat math. In that time I saw a lot of improvement in my math skills. Peter helped me look at problems in ways different then the book showed me which helped immensely. I would definitely recommend peter for math tutoring
James has been working with our son on math and on SAT prep for about 9 months. Son's grades have improved and his confidence is greatly improved. James is really able to connect with my son, who in turn steps up to meet the challenge..
We have sent two of our children to The Harvard Review, one for SAT prep and one for MCAT prep. Both children benefited greatly from their services, and we will be sending our youngest there as well when the time comes.
Math and science were the two subjects I always found myself having trouble with. With that being said, I was never 100% confident I would be able to pursue my dream of working in the medical field. Shortly after working with Samantha my entire outlook changed! Not only did she greatly improve my test scores, and my understanding of math and science but she made learning them something I really enjoy now. Samantha is accommodating, determined and invested in her students. Together we set goals and thanks to her they were reached- I scored a 1520 on my SAT!
Eve has helped our High School Junior with SAT writing/reading and she did an amazing job.Our son gained confidence and felt prepared taking the test as Eve had spent time going through strategies and ensuring understanding which lead to a much improved score.Eve has a fun, engaging and motivated approach which she brings to every session. Highly recommend Eve!
we hired Hallie to tutor our hs junior son for the april ACT. she was pleasant, courteous and effective. he scored 33 and we are very very happy with the outcome.
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.
Jeff really kick-started our daughter's preparation for the SAT, and helped hone her test taking skills and refreshed her on key concepts.
Thanks to Christine and ClubZ for a great tutoring experience. Not only did Christine identify my sons needs for SAT tutoring, her execution and follow-up went above and beyond. My son became more confident as he worked with Rich over a period of time and the results were his improved SAT scores. I would highly recommend Christine and ClubZ In-Home Tutoring.
ASVAB Test Prep Dan is the man ! I came to him a week before my ASVAB test, I was having problems with the Math knowledge and arithmetic reasoning section of test. With such very little time Dan made a huge impact !! Due to his help I passed the test with flying colors ! He actually breaks problems down and goes into detail. He shows you multiple ways to work out a problem. I enjoyed working with him, he actually made math fun and easy !!!!
I contacted Robert after being impressed by his tutoring philosophy. Having only a few months of being tutored by him, the end result was getting to the 98th percentile from the 93 percentile for me. Robert is one of the most patient tutors I have ever had (I have received tutoring since 8th grade), and he explains everything clearly. Follow his logic and do not be afraid to ask any questions about anything. He is an expert on the whole organization of test prep, and he will provide you with the most useful websites for additional test prep. In addition, he is knowledgeable about other subjects as well, which is why I continue to seek his help with my issues in college such as time management and study skills. While working with Robert on the ACT we spoke about other areas of my education as well as my college plans. I came to realize that Robert took a sincere interest in my overall well-being, and consistently made suggestions that invaluable to me on many fronts. Within a few weeks I began to call upon him to help me with my educational plan and college applications. Together, we developed strategies to strengthen my application and Robert helped me to develop my college essays. We went through the trials and tribulations of the college application process, and every step of the way Robert was there to help guide me. Even today, as a freshman at an Ivy League university Robert was there to help me with course selection in addition to many of the challenges an incoming student faces on a college campus. One thing that struck me the most is his ability to understand people, especially how one person responds to different situations. This is important because he is able to understand what is exactly preventing someone from achieving the best of their ability. For example, there was a specific component that I was struggling with my coursework, and he helped me overcome that problem after identifying a specific study limitation that I did not know I had. Over time, he has become a mentor for me. Truly you will be very lucky to have Robert as a tutor because he goes above and beyond for you, and young adults need someone to guide them through difficult times.
I love my tutoring sessions with Sammy because she is very personable and always makes sure I know the answer before moving on to the next question. She sets guidelines of what I have to accomplish before our next session and keeps me accountable. I always walk away learning new material and know it is completely worth the experience. She makes it fun and knows how to keep my attention. I strongly recommend having her to anyone who needs help with act/sat testing.
Erik was extremely helpful to my son. My son is not the disrespectful type but does not always take well to teachers who he thinks cannot teach well. He had nothing but positives to say about Erik. He enjoyed being tutored by him, and felt he got a lot from the sessions. And yes, he did very well on the SAT, finishing in the top 1%. Thank you Erik.
Ken was effective at tutoring our three daughters for their Math SAT. One of them increased their score from a 640 to a 750.
I really appreciated the time and effort that she put towards me. It was a tremendous help and I felt extremely prepared for the SAT. Mrs. Kaplan would always try to arrive on time for our appointments and would even spend extra time with me if needed. If anyone is serious about doing well on the English section of the SAT, I highly recommend Mrs. Kaplan.
We’ve been working with Profesor BAM for a few weeks and have already referred friends. Our son is engaged. He works well with with our son. We are hoping for great results on his SAT.
Bill helped to unlock the puzzle of the SAT exam for my daughter. She learned so much in such a short time and felt confident both walking into the test and walking out. Thank you!

I have been tutoring math (pre-algebra to geometry), the English language (reading, writing, and ESL), and test preparation (Hunter, SHSAT, and SAT) for five years both independently and through agencies. I create a curriculum based on an initial evaluation and then work with students for a short period in order to prepare them to meet specific goals.
