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!
Mr. Parez was my tutor in high school for about a year to help me prepare for the SAT exam. The tutoring sessions were very convenient because they were done over Skype. Having the tutoring sessions done over Skype cut out time/money that would have been put into travel. Mr. Parez was always accommodating when it came to scheduling my tutoring sessions around my busy schedule. Mr. Parez had me take a preliminary SAT exam to see the areas of the exam I excelled in and which areas I struggled with. He helped me improve significantly in the areas I struggled in through various personalized lessons and homework assignments. Mr. Parez helped me to raise my score significantly. I believe that achieving a higher score on the SAT exam made me a stronger College applicant and helped me to get into 7 out of 7 Colleges that I applied to, including my top choice, of which I am now in attendance. I highly recommend Mr. Parez for any of you tutoring needs.
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!
Dr. V has been so helpful in his tutoring. He has impressive credentials and a passion for French. We appreciate all he has done.
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.
Tutoring is going great. Altea takes her time and ensures my son understands thoroughly before moving on to the next topic.
Debi has done an excellent job with my 12 year old son. She has been able to help him with math, geography, and English. He has even emerged from the tutoring sessions with a smile on his face, despite his general distaste for homework and a grumpy disposition on the way in. Thank you Debi!
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.
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.
We met in a small group once a week for SAT prep. It was a relaxed setting and we got a lot of work done. We started off with a practice test of both the act and the sat which was very helpful. I found the one on one session to be especially helpful, and there was never a question that went unanswered. I really enjoyed the class and got a lot out of it.
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.
My daughter sat for her SSAT and is pleased with her scores. She is very grateful for your help. Thank you for your excellent tutoring support. You clearly engaged her with the test preparation process, and motivated her to work hard.
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.
Yekaterina is tutoring Math to four of my kids (K, third, fifth and seventh grader). She is kind, patient and encouraging. Kids actually look forward to her lessons and I do see their good results on Math. I highly recommend her.
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.
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!
John is an outstanding tutor. He quickly estabilished a good rapor with our children and understands how to maximize benefit from sessions. His scheduling was flexible enough to bend around work, school and sports schedules. We have recommended him and highly recommend him to others!
