Jeremy is an incredible tutor. Before meeting with him I had enrolled in another tutoring service and was completely lost. I dreaded taking the ACT because of how unprepared I felt with the previous tutoring program. Jeremy stepped in and cleared everything up within a few sessions. We tackled every section together and learned what it takes to get a good score. I no longer am nervous about the ACT, but rather excited because I am certain he has given me the tools to achieve a score of 33 or above and be accepted into the most elite schools. I definitely recommend him to anybody that is looking for a tutor not just for the standardized tests!
Peter has been working with my children for several months and I have seen dramatic increase in their grades. He is very reliable and able to communicate effectively with the kids.He's able to break down the learning materials where they understand it.I'm very please with the progress and will continue using his tutoring service for my children.
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.
Lisa is a patient and component tutor. My daughter London loves her. She has given my daughter back her confidence when it comes to reading and writing. She works with your schedule for working parents. I have had several tutors, but I feel confident in her skills and professionalism. Will recommend her to anyone that needs a tutor.
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.
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.
Jeff Urdang is really motivated in helping me score a higher score in my SAT and I was able to use the SAT skills he showed me to be well prepared on the day of the test. He is a good SAT tutor if you need help in certain areas and helps you score higher than before.
We worked with Kat for our daughters both on math skills as well as English skills. She is nothing short of outstanding. She understands the learning process, and she understands kids. The results were clear and successful. We now have successful (honor roll) and independent students, thanks to the foundation that Kat lay for them. I recommend her without hesitation, and send her our many thanks.
Dave has the right touch, understands my child's issue and treats him with respect. Tony has learned a great amount of math and has enjoyed working with Dave.
His patience is very rare and his helpful skills make him a great tutor. He helps with the problem step by step if needed and allows me to do certain problems on my own in order to give myself a better understanding. I highly recommend this tutor for kids who rather prefer one on one learning and a brighter future in math.
She works very well with my son. He has improved tremendously in spelling and writing his projects from school. I would recommend her to anyone looking to advance their child
Excellent tutor! He was extremely kind to work with me last minute and was very helpful in finding new ways to explain concepts to me so that I could understand. I would 100% recommend him for math tutoring again. He's an awesome teacher and he helped me earn a 95% on my final statistics project
Excellent tutor. Well prepared for instruction and individualizes approach to meet student needs.
Brilliant tutor! Not only did my daughter pass the triginometry regents after sarah tutored her, but, my 17 year old felt very comfortable with her. It's difficult for a 17 year old teenage girl to actually want to go to tutor lessons let alone like their tutor but my daughter loved her. Thanks sarah!
Ken was effective at tutoring our three daughters for their Math SAT. One of them increased their score from a 640 to a 750.
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.
Dan is a great teacher. I've always been good at math but I hate Geometry and it was affecting my grade average. I was having a really hard time understanding the lessons. Dan helped me bring my grades up and now I actually enjoy Geometry. Dan has a way of making Geometry look easy. I would definitely recommend Dan as a math tutor.
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!
