Josh was a thoughtful, patient, and excellent tutor for the ACT. He helped me raise my score over 5 composite points to a 33. I am extremely grateful for his assistance, and because of it, I got into DUKE UNIVERSITY! Again, I am eternally grateful.
Jeremy was a fantastic tutor. My daughter's scores went up signifantly! He was patient, and made what can be such a stressful experience, very calming and incredibly helpful! He's an exceptional tutor, and works wonders in guiding students through the process. I highly recommend him.
Our tutor is knowledgeable and great with my son. And is accommodating to my crazy schedule. She's a gem. So glad I found Thumbtack.
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.
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.
Paul was an excellent Spanish tutor for myself and my husband as we prepared for a trip to Spain. He's patient and very sweet. We highly recommend him!
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.
Nayu is an amazing tutor who takes the time to get to know you, your needs, and your learning style. She is incredibly responsive and flexible, and always brings new materials/ideas for learning to each lesson. I highly recommend her as a tutor.
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.
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.
Tristan tutored my son for his SAT's and did a fabulous job. My son was not confident when he first took them and he had not studied. I felt that for him to have a chance at a higher score he needed one on one tutoring. Even though Tristan resided in Connecticut and my son in Long Island, Tristan took the challenge and tutored my son via Skype. Xavier recently took the SAT's again in January and his score were raised over 100 points. Tristan only tutored my son for six weeks. I wonder how many more points my son would of raised his score if he had been tutored by Tristan longer. I attribute my son 's success to Tristan and his patience and diligence with my son. He was always on time and professional. He provided written reports after each session and kept me abreast of what he would target with Xavier to improve his scores. I am very happy that I chose Tristan to tutor my son. His prices were very reasonable and he was knowledgeable and kind towards my son. I recommend him and his organization to anyone he wants to help their child succeed. So far my son has been admitted to two private colleges and he has received grants. Thank you Tristan!
