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)
We bought a few too many tutoring sessions and they refunded us a couple of hours promptly, with no questions asked. The quality of the tutoring was top notch.
Rodrigo is fabulous! My girls have learned so much from him. He is very well organized and has various curriculum for the kids.
Anderson tutoring (Bertina Specifically) helped my son work on more advanced math so he could get into higher math in Jr. High.
I have been taking Spanish lessons with Cristobal for coming up on a year and French lessons for the past 6 months or so. While I am sure that there are plenty of choices for tutoring this may be the only teacher I have had that I can honestly say has far superior methodology versus all my other professors. I don't say this lightly either, I say this coming from years of experience with other teachers in various settings. Just to give a little background, I studied Spanish for 3 years in high school, then studied in Mexico at a vocational school in a completely immersed environment (living with a host family of non-English speakers) far from the reaches of most gringos in a small city called Cuernavaca. I have worked with native Spanish speakers that speak very little English for 10+ years, studied Spanish in college for 4 semesters, and even studied with Professor William Slavin for two years in weekly private sessions, a local scholar who spoke English, Spanish, French, ,Italian, Portuguese, and Hebrew. While Slavin's approach was very thorough, Cristobal's approach is practical, more natural, and aimed at speaking. Ole! Spanish School isn't just another business in the sea, it's a place with an authentic philosophy and a natural approach to language learning. To make the experience even better, his rates are super reasonable and he has a very easy going personality that creates a relaxed environment. His positive ratings exist for a reason.
I highly recommend Acadmic Associates. We spent 4 years with Robin and Academic Assiciates. We put both our kids through their program starting at 4 years old. Our goal was to give our kids a little boost with reading before they started school that they would carry with then through their whole academic career. This program did just that. Robin knows her stuff and took both our kids all the way through and they both graduated. We were very happy with our choice.
Renji is AMAZING! I could not have been blessed with a better tutor, I guarantee that he will help you raise your ACT score or help you in whatever way needed for tutoring. He uses Apple technology during the lesson and does a great job explaining in detail how to get an answer. If you have Renji as your tutor, you have the best tutor!!
We did in-person tutoring at the library for math. Our tutor was excellent.
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
Kevin is the most outstanding tutor I have ever met or even ever spoken with. He is a retired physician who had great teachers during his career and now works with students to try and have a positive influence on their lives. My son did both high school Math and Science tutoring with him AND also did ACT test preparation with him. My son's ACT scores went from 24 before working with Kevin to 33 after working with him for just 3 months! I cannot speak more highly of him. If you want your son or daughter to really excel - you better at least meet with this guy! Darren G. Northbrook, IL
After 4 short months of working with Marilyn, we saw drastic improvements in our 8 year old daughter's Reading Comprehension and writing skills. Currently, she is averaging an "A" in Reading Comprehension and her writing skills has drastically improved. Our daughter also loves working with Marilyn which helps tutoring more enjoyable.
Tim did a fantastic job tutoring my son for the ACT. He totally understood where to concentrate their time. Highly recommend.
I had a great experince taking accent reduction lessons with Cindy. She is very clear when teaching the matrials. I am very happy that I learned new ways to sound words that I used to say them wrong.
Mrs. Ingrid has been tutoring my children for almost 9 months. She is always patient, punctual, and easy to communicate with. She selects the reading materials for the different levels my kids are on and we are very happy with the progress they made. We are looking forward to having her as our tutor for many years to come.
We've been working with Cristobal for 2 weeks now and we're very pleased. We're very grateful to have the luxury of such a dedicated tutor for such a nominal fee. At the pace he has set for us I'm confident we will speak fluently soon enough. Gracias, Professor!
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.
Dena is a very professional math tutor, she is very patient and full of knowledge and expertise for the subject of math. Highly recommend!
Miss. Kolterman did a great job. She tutors to my girls and my girls improve a lot on their subjects.
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!
I cannot say enough about Amina. She tutored my daughter in French throughout high school at Hinsdale Central and then again in college over one summer. Amina always knew how to make the material understandable to my daughter in a way that she could comprehend and begin to understand the structures of the French language. She was patient but challenging at the same time. I know without Amina's help my daughter would not have been as successful. Her support gave my daughter the confidence she needed to conquer the language. Our schedule was very busy and Amina always worked with us to make scheduling tutoring time possible for both of us. She was always on time and would always follow up if the schedule needed to be changed. I highly recommend her to anyone.
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!
