Ms. Sandy has been doing an awesome job at tutoring my 6 year-old son. Before he met her, my son was struggling with reading a book.(because we only speaks Korean at home) Now his reading skills are much improved and he is able to read! His grade get higher since Ms. Sandy starts to teach him. She is warm, patient and very sweet. We really want to have her to teach him more. We also recommended her to my Korean colleague, who has a 5 year-old daughter. - NamSuk Oh & KyongHwa Jung (in Chicago)
I'm very impressed with the quality and the education of the tutors. It's like everyone here has an Ivy League education.
Wendie was an excellent tutor. Easy to schedule with and found a time and convenient location close to home. My son's score went up several points from the first time he took the ACT (before tutoring). His Reading score had a big increase send his math score went up dramatically too. My son mentioned that the tutoring also helped him in his math class at school. I would definitely hire Wendi again.
Ole Spanish tutoring is a wonderful experience. I have had many tutors in languages and he makes the experience interesting and fun. We learn a lot and have conversation and still get vocabulary. He also uses different teaching tools which I love. Also, he doesn't go too fast or too slow- he mixes it up. I always had tutors that went so slow and I didn't get enough from the class but this isn't the case with Cristobal.He is willing to answer questions and always makes you feel good about answering. He is very encouraging. Don't hesitate to take with him. He is very thorough and good at teaching Spanish. I recommend him 100% and still take Spanish with him now.
My daughters reading and comprehension was really holding her back. she started in 6th grade reading at a 4th grade level. At the end of her sessions she is reading on an 11th grade level.Her comprehension is on an 8th grade level, and increasing all the time. She has learned valuable tools and now has a love for reading.
If your looking for a great tutor look no further! We picked Hntsa to help our son increase his ACT score two points to help him qualify for an academic scholarship. Two points isn't a huge jump, but we only had five weeks to prepare and the last two ACT tests resulted in the same score. After reading Hntsa's background information and reviews we decided to give him a call. It was the best decision we ever made. Hntsa is intellectual, methodical, patient, and insightful. He took the time to really understand our son's strengths and weaknesses so that he could use that information to develop a tutoring plan that was specific to our son. The resources that he had available were abundant up to and including a watch to help keep track of time when doing a practice a test or taking it live. Hntsa also understands how the test is put together, how it works, and the best way to attack it. He also know how to speak to teens in a way that is not condescending. Our son increased his composite score by three points and his STEM score by four! Now, our son put in a lot of effort to get that score, but he never would have done it on his own. We already tried. He needed someone like Hntsa. A tutor that was genuinely interested in him not just as a student, but as a person. It's rare to find people who love what they do so much that their enthusiasm rubs off on you! That's what happened with my son and I think the learning lessons that Hntsa gave my son will stay with him beyond the ACT test. We are eternally grateful for everything he did. You will be too.
We did in-person tutoring at the library for math. Our tutor was excellent.
Suzanne has been my daughter's tutor for the past ten years. She very quickly tapped into her strengths and interests to provide fun ways to improve her language arts skills. Suzanne's special education background, in addition to her patient and kind personality have made her an excellent teacher. My daughter has absolutely loved going to "tutoring" all these years!
Allison has been working with my 6th grade daughter tutoring her in math and i cant believe the difference in such a short time. Its so nice to see my child have a level of confidence when it comes to math that she has never had before
I was so impressed with Kevin and couldn't be happier that he reached out on thumb tack. I was in search of a tutor to help me pass the Elementary Education Math Content Test (very similar to the ACT math). Not only was Kevin able to teach in student friendly terms, he was SO knowledgeable of the types of questions and concepts I would need to know. Kevin was always very punctual and approachable when ever I did not understand something. We were able to meet before tutoring began to create a plan that we would follow together. By the last session, we covered every topic in the amount of time I hoped for. If you're in need of any math tutoring, I would HIGHLY recommend Kevin. Hands down the absolute best tutor I have ever been in contact with!!
Mrs. Maikisch has really helped my daughter a lot. I have seen the progress of my daughter reading level and her comprehension. She has been very flexible with me with my work schedule to help my daughter build her reading comprehension and skills. My daughter was struggling in reading, but now her reading is a a lot better. Her reading level was at a first grade level but I have seen her reading progress tremendously. Thank you, Mrs. Maikisch
Tim did a fantastic job tutoring my son for the ACT. He totally understood where to concentrate their time. Highly recommend.
Marissa was an excellent tutor! She helped me with my English homework and because of her I got a much better grade in the class. I feel like I am a better writer because of her and I use the skills she gave me in all of my writing assignments now. She was incredibly professional but also very friendly and easy to talk to. Essay writing is now so much easier for me because of the the things Marissa taught me. I would recommend Marissa as a tutor to anyone looking to improve their writing.
I´ve only been working with Cristobal for a short time due to my work schedule, but I´m very comfortable now with speaking and reading Spanish. I really like his approach to teaching the language and his passion for it. He also has group meet ups so that you can enjoy speaking with others on your proficiency level and continue gaining confidence in your speaking ability.
Sarah was extremely proficient working with our son. Our son struggled in reading comprehension and math. Sarah was quick to offer alternative learning methods, and was extremely professional while also being compassionate. I really can't say enough good about Sarah. She exceeded our expectations in every way.
My daughter was having a hard time with Kindergarten. To the point she was on a path of repeating kindergarten. My daughter at one point enjoyed reading. However, as the level of books increased, my daughter’s confidence decreased. We started tutoring with Ms. Kendra September 2017, and my daughter’s confidence and fluency in reading drastically improved. It does not matter if her session is in person or over the computer, my daughter is engaged and enjoying the time learning with Ms. Kendra! She even wakes up before us ensuring we know she has tutoring. My daughter first report card was all A’s- most importantly A’s in reading & writing! First person she wanted to tell was Ms. Kendra! I cannot explain the positive influence Ms. Kendra has on my daughter. Ms. Kendra is dedicated to the growth of her students. She puts her all into each session, giving her students her all. We are forever grateful!
Amazing!!! Mrs. V made my daughter feel comfortable and smart in the short time they were together. She made great assessments with my daughter and was reviewing her current skills and helping her develop new ones through reading and play. i was throughly impressed and I'm very happy she will be working with us!
I am a certified teacher willing to tutor on evenings and weekends at a public location (library, coffee shop, etc.).
With two Psychology degrees, Corona is very experienced in talent training (career consulting, recruiting and company culture training). That’s why when teaching Chinese, she prefers to encourage students to talk and construct their sentences. Out of her career habit, she enjoys communicating with students and adjusting content according to students’ specific needs. Learning from a teacher like Corona, your experience will be brought up to a more advanced level. • Education: BSc. in Psychology and M.A. in Psychology • Experience: Half a year experience in tutoring Mandarin Chinese; 3-year experience in talent training, part-time career consulting and recruiting. • Teaching Style: Useful, Interesting, Easy. • Private Classes: 2-4 hours/week • $100 for every 2 hours.
I have been doing this for years and have taught science for special ed students and average students. I am patient and can teach hard material in a way that is fun and interesting.
I offer tutoring and writing services. I provide tutoring services for reading, writing, and Spanish as well as writing services such as ghostwriting of books and articles.
