Sara is an excellent tutor. She has that rare talent of connecting with my son on a level a 15 year old can relate to with the jnowledge and skill he desparately needed to succeed. I highly reccomend her.
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.
Sasha is a very intelligent, thoughtful and charismatic tutor! She gets down to your level of understanding and helps you rise up every step of the way until you understand the solution to problems. She is a great teacher, definitely recommend her to anyone trying to improve their GMAT scores in a short period of time!
Jim tutors my son for the SAT's. He is extremely professional, patient, timely and entertaining. His true talent shows in his ability to access the situation and move forward using traditional and non traditional methods to achieve success.
Great tutor, for an initially unwilling student. Things changed immediately once they started working together. Thankful!
I had taken French for many years, at the Alliance Française and with 2 private tutors from the Alliance. Ainna is better than both of them. Both of the private tutors didn't do anything except talk to me in French. For that they charged $80 an hour. Ainna charges less, and we do exercises that help me really learn. The Alliance classes were good, but they didn't help at all with my accent. And I didn't get a lot of talking time, even in a small class. I highly recommend Ainna!
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.
John's the best tutor I've ever had so far. He's very patient and able to translate the material so you can better understand the subject. If you really take the time to try and learn as much as you can, you are guaranteed results with his guidance. All in all, he's a respectable man and worth the money and time. I would highly recommend him to anyone friend or stranger and definitely going to keep in touch if I need help in the future.
Eileen was an excellent tutor. Patient, thorough and always very well prepared. She was truly a pleasure to work with!
After my first lesson, I felt confident in my tutor’s ability to help myself and my daughter become more fluent in spanish.
She was a great tutor that helped me work through my material by actually teaching me, not just doing my problems.
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!
Jer is an all around great tutor. The range of subjects he can help with is truly amazing. We hired him to help with standardized testing, AP Statistics and AP Calculus. He has a great demeanor, he is well prepared for lessons, and he is really able to explain concepts very well which is the key. I highly recommend him!
Julia was wonderful with my son,Dylan! I could tell that by the way she interacted with my son, that she is very passionate about teaching Spanish. My son found her to be very positive and easy to understand. I highly recommend Julia as a tutor.
Judy Garfinkel is fabulous, I could not ask for a more considerate professional who has the experience and creativity to work outside the box. Our grandson is in 1st grade at a public school. He could not understand how to interpret what he was being taught (mainly phonics & reading), his behavior was disrupting the classroom because learning was too stressful for him. I looked into tutoring programs, but it wasn’t till he began working with Judy that he began to feel better about himself and more confident. His teacher has noticed a big difference. I can honestly say Judy has our grandson's best interest at heart. Judy’s approach to learning is fun - he loves to go see her and is actually skipping when he leaves her office! Judy also has experience with the school system; she advised us on what to ask for and gave us suggestions on how to proceed, including avenues, strategies to look into. Judy is currently coordinating with his teacher, too. Judy is so much more than a tutor and she’s worth every penny of her fee. I’m not just pleased, I’m ecstatic because now my grandson is getting the help he needs.
The tutor is excellent but I chose the wtong time to try and start. All delays are due to my horrible schedule but when I have time in Sept I will resume with this pro.
Nayu was very pleasant and easy to talk to. She understood how much attention and care my 11 year old needed . She had a comfortable setting at her home for the Spanish tutoring I was very impressed with the structure of her teaching and she even got little story books that were in English and the matching book in Spanish
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!
Martha is an excellent Spanish tutor. She works well with my 8th grade son, and she has helped him become comfortable with the language. His scores have risen thanks to her.
Great job refocusing and giving positive reinforcement. Had begun to make reading enjoyable
