My Spanish tutoring sessions with Julissa, which are ongoing as I write this, have been outstanding. I am a rather odd student -- 74 years old trying to recover the level of Spanish I had achieved after high school and college. Julissa has done a great job figuring out how to get me engaged in the process and what I need to do to improve.

I speak Spanish so when i was learning to write an essay in English, it really was very difficult for me. I look for help, and i found Julissa!!!. She has very good techniques to teach :). She helped me to learn and understand. I recommend her, she is an excellent and patient teacher.

Mr. Mullen's attention to detail, and professionalism are unmatched. Tom is very personable, and takes a keen interest in clearly understanding the client's skill sets. My abilities, and accomplishments were clearly highlighted. Tom consistently went above and beyond, ensuring I was aware of job alerts, interview techniques, and upcoming job fairs. He, and his wife are a great resume writing team, and I am confident my cover letter/resume will open many doors.

I’ve had the opportunity to utilize Ms. Ondria Johnson’s education and tutoring services since August of 2014. She has worked with my basketball teams in the subject of math and reading. Since that time, my basketball teams has not only grasped the fundamental aspects of math but, increased their skills within the classroom setting. She’s displayed on a continuing basis, patience and in-depth knowledge ranging from addition to calculus. I’m highly impressed with her diverse approach to engaging the age difference of my players. I highly recommend Ms. Johnson to work with your child an individual basis or in a group setting. Either way she’s shown and proven the ability to be ready and successful.

My son took a math session with Ondria and she really helped him to understand what he didn't seem to get in school. This tutoring session helped him pass his class. Harobel is a wonderful organization with a dedicated leader.

My experience with Erin was very brief but, very helpful and enjoyable. My 4th grader needed help with his writing. she did a very thorough assessment of his ability and proceeded. It was summer and we had a lot of travel and were not consistent clients. We are currently looking to rehire and work with her this winter/spring.

I think the teacher is very kind and knowledgeable. She leads a student to study much more fun and less stressful. Only she should have kept the appointments a bit better. Overall the tutoring was great.

Wendy was amazing! She taught me how to read patterns and told me not to be afraid to improvise if needed to make it work. It was just what I needed. My pattern turned out great and I feel great about my edits to it. I would defiantly hire her again!

I did not anticipate the impact that Novastar tutoring would have. We started with our oldest child, and tutoring to help raise her math grade. Not only did her grade rise quickly, but also her overall confidence. We now have two children receiving "proactive" tutoring, to keep them ahead of the curve. Their grades have never been higher!

I found Novastar Prep to be very responsive and professional. The tutors placed with my son after an extensive concussion he incurred were very easy to work with, communicate with, and very knowledgeable in each subject area. Novastar will always be my tutor company of choice if needed in the future.

I was referred by a friend who had found Yolanda through Thumbtack. She had such a wonderful experience, she passed her contact information along to me when I was looking for a reading tutor for my first grader. If you are looking for someone to just help your child through homework, a college tutor will do. If you are looking for someone to help your child really develop and progress, Yolanda is the perfect tutor for you. While her background and credentials are impressive, those things do not always equate to a having a good tutor. More than being a tutor, Yolanda will become your child's advocate alongside you. She is willing to go above and beyond to help your child and also always open and available to answer any questions or concerns you may have about your child. You will receive timely session updates on your child's progress so that you can really work with her to help your child. If you have any concerns about meeting online, let me assure you that the online experience is also wonderful. My son is actually more focused and has less distractions meeting online. He has his routine, getting his headphones on and getting the computer ready. He looks forward to his time with Ms. Yolanda! If you are serious about helping your child grow and develop, I would highly recommend Yolanda.

Ms. Fraction arrived on time to perform an initial assessment on my 5 yr old for reading and math. During the 45 minute assessment she was able to keep my son engaged and read his body language so that he wouldn't get bored. The next day I received the assessment report with recommendations. Ms. Fraction express interest in receiving feedback from my son's teachers and results from state tests perform to further help my son.

Nancy is always punctual and prepared for teaching different lessons. She is a great listener and instructor since she is able to connect with students effectively when teaching various lessons. She uses different methods of teaching which helps students learn since they are responsive to the different techniques implemented. She is great colleague who is always helpful to others and maintains her priority on her students. I think that Nancy is always able to overcome any challenges that students face as she is always helpful and has had previous experience teaching students of all levels. I think that she has great work quality, that she is professional and she is always a pleasure to work with.

Nancy Halsey has written grants for our organization for almost 10 years. She has exceptional writing and editing skills. After Nancy wrote a particular grant, the foundation called me to say it was the best well-written grant they had received. I have never received a phone call like that before. Nancy is professional and honest; she uses research and wisdom when writing grants and talking with employees. I highly recommend her for any writing opportunities that you may have. L.

Working with Isis is such a pleasure and I'm happy to be her student. Her classes are always so much fun but efficient as well. I've been working with her on my writing for the past 4 days. I genuinely enjoy every minute of our classes and my writing level drastically improves with each passing day. Isis is always punctual and her work quality is of a high caliber. She lets us pick out sample prompts and then we start to outline our essays together before writing them. My essays have begun to be more visually appealing, to the point, and cohesive. I've begun to view writing from a different vantage point. A subject that, up until recently, seemed boring to me has now become a fun activity. Isis has mainly been helping me with my New SAT Essay and my college application essays as well. If you've been wanting help with your writing but don't know which tutor to choose then look no further! Isis H. is the obvious choice! She's efficient, affordable, punctual, and high quality.

Michelle was extremely knowledgeable and had an immediate rapport with my daughter. The short term goal was to improve her grades in reading and language arts. Besides learning the material, my daughter became more open to the idea of using a tutor, and realized the benefit of doing so. You can really tell that Michelle loves kids and has a blast working with them, and that makes all the difference!

My daughter really enjoyed her first session with Michelle. They worked for two hours in the SAT booklet on the writing. Michelle gave her an assignment to complete the Math pre-test to prepare for their next session. I was pleased after the first meeting.

I was really struggling with the math and reading sections on the SAT. I was contacted by Universal Design Tutoring and I couldn't be more thankful. I needed a high score to get into the college I was really hoping to get into because my gpa wasn't the greatest. My tutor was so knowledgeable and put things in lamens terms for me and I was able to get the score I needed. I'm so happy:) I would highly recommend their services.
