My son has his confidence back thanks to Peter. My son did well in math through 5th grade. He did poorly each quarter in Math in 6th despite having adequate standardized test scores. Peter reviews Math in a positive and fun way. I am confident my son will do much better in 7th Grade. He is even hoping to advance to the next level. Thanks Peter.
Good tutor! On time, professional and very knowledgeable. My daughter had her first tests this week showing real progress and said she felt like she actually understood for the first time in awhile and it was great to see her so happy and more confident!
Excellent test prep, college consulting, and personal essay help. My college acceptances and generous scholarship awards would not have been possible without all your help. Thank you!
Beth has been an excellent fit for our 11th grader. As midterms approached last year, he was falling further and further behind in math. On the first test he took after one session with Beth he received a 92! She was very reliable, coming every week right on time. Our son seemed to enjoy the sessions, and by the end of the year, instead of groaning about homework he actually likes math now. His confidence has improved in every subject, and his grade in math is currently a B+, up from a D in the middle of last year. I would pay double her charge to be guaranteed the results she delivers.
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!
My son's overall score increased by 4 points from a 28 to a 32 after John worked with him. He felt confident and very well prepared going into his ACT. The study and test taking skills he learned were are directly applicable to the test, and his pre-test checklist was an excellent planning aid. I highly recommend John to any student who's committed to successfully improving ACT performance. Caroline P. Westport,CT
Theresa is a wonder tutor. She is both responsible and patient. She has helped my daughter with her comprehension and test results. I would strongly recommend her as a tutor.
Thank you so much for all the help, this was a fantastic class. The class helped me to feel prepared and confident for the SAT; when I went on test day I knew I was ready to tackle the test successfully. The instructors related well to all of the students, and I gained so many helpful tips about the test I feel it was completely worth my time. Learning all the strategies Gary and Andrew shared in class really improved my score. I was able to get 2010 on my SAT, an increase of almost 300 points from my PSAT, thanks to all I learned at College Planning Partnerships. In addition to improving my scores on the SAT, my family has also gained insight into the entire college application process from Sam. Thanks to everyone at CPP, I am confident that I am on the right track to get ready for next year. This has significantly reduced the stress during my junior year, and I am sure I will be sending Sam good news next year about where I will attend college. I highly recommend College Planning Partnerships to anyone interested in improving their scores. The instructors are very knowledgeable and always willing to help. They taught me how to go into the test confident in my own abilities and ready to do my best.
I contacted Altea because I was studying for the GRE. I had not taken a math course in 24 years, and I had very little memory of Algebra and Geometry. Altea and I met within a week of our first contact, and we met weekly after that. She is wonderful tutor. Her knowledge and passion for math was just what I needed to get excited about an exam that scared me so much. She was always on time and was always prepared. Altea is kind and patient, and she has a wonderful sense of humor. I highly recommend Altea for help with coursework and/or test preparation.
Dan is extremely professional, responsive and accommodating. He matched our daughter up with Claudia who immediately made her feel comfortable. We are still awaiting test scores but our daughter said Claudia helped her a lot.
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.
Yekaterina is lovely. She is always prompt and is helping my daughter tremendously with her math and science portions of the a c t test.
Linda has been such a wonderful teacher to my both of my daughters! She really helps them to understand their SAT studies and improve their scores. We are very thankful for Linda's help and highly recommend her tutoring services!!! Thanks Linda!!
James tutored my daughter for the SAT as well as the SAT math level II subject test. He is very knowledgeable of the subject matter as well as of the necessary strategies to tackle these tests with positive outcomes. My daughter was very happy with his tutoring style and felt confident on test day.
Diane was patient and reliable. She provided me with hints and tips that definitely helped me pass the math portion of the Praxis II. I would highly recommend her to anyone wanting to pass a test!!
Excellent. Linda is dedicated, knowledgable, very qualified. I will continue with Linda for all 4 of my children. She goes above and beyond the call of duty. Even checking in with students to wish them Luck and remind them to stay focused and practice. Excellent, I will recommend her highly.
Ilya helped raise my daughter's SAT score by close to 300 points! That is stunning. He was able to do this by teaching her how to analyze a problem and how to assess possible answers. My daughter also tended to obsess over her answers and as a result was not finishing all the test questions in the time allotted. Ilya gave her the confidence to work more efficiently. We found Ilya to be kind, patient and a fabulous teacher.
Two reasons: 1) I get results 2) I love what I do and it's obvious
