It's crucial for the student (especially teenagers) to connect with the tutorer and I can say without hesitation Wendi does? Not only does Wendi instruct on content, she encourages and teaches strategies. My son's pretest score for the ACT was 19 and after only four weeks of prep improved to 25. Wendi is truly a blessing to our family!

Greg has worked with our 8th grade daughter for the past eighteen months. She went from being a B math student to an A student and has maintained that A grade every trimester since. Her standardized testing and CPS MAP scores have increased dramatically in math. Her confidence is very high. Greg is extremely knowledgeable and kind. Our daughter feels very comfortable asking him any math question or for clarification. Greg is the ultimate professional. He is always on time and truly cares about his students progress. He is wonderful about keeping parents aware of each class session. Our family has benefitted a great deal from Greg Pucci of Accel Math and Science Tutoring. Try one of his sessions and you will be hooked.

I got to know of Chhavi Porwal through a friend, who had been very happy with her experience with her. I hired Chhavi to teach English as a second language to a cousin. Since she is bilingual certified, she was able to relate very well to the student, and within just 6 weeks of tutoring, his English fluency, grammar and pronunciation improved remarkably as did his confidence. Chhavi is a very dependable, experienced ESL tutor. I highly recommend her to anyone who wants to learn/ improve their English.

I hired Lauren to help my 11 year old twins with math and English homework. She came to our home and worked with them both. Her first session was just yesterday. She impressed me in that she was incredibly patient and encouraging. She went above and beyond in that we had originally hired her for one hour but once she dug in with my son it became clear this was a longer project - she ended up staying at our house for 1 1/2 hours! After the first session, Lauren followed up with me. She provided a plan of action to get my children the help they need now and how to get them to where they can work more independently. It was wonderful. In my case, homework had become a tough, with my twins fighting over my time and questioning whether or not I really know how to do their math problems (I do, but not the way they are learning them!). Honestly, this is the best money I might ever spend. Now, homework is about a peaceful chance to work with a wonderful, qualified teacher rather than fight with mom about fractions!

About

My son did not like being tutored. Mr. Stehlik is the tutor that my friend highly recommended. When I proposed to him to get tutoring from Mr. Stehlik for ACT, not surprisingly to get the answer-- immediately declined. I could not do anything until my son told me his practice ACT test scores-- his scores during practice had been in the range 33-34. At this point I forced him to go to see Mr. Stehlik. I pre-arranged with Val for a 6 lesson package but in case my son did not want to go further, he would only do one lesson. Nervously, I asked my son when he finished the 1st lesson, "do you feel helpful?" Surprisely, he answered "yes". "Would you like to continue for 5 more lessons?" My son said firmly "yes". The 6 tutoring lessons were done in a period of 3 weeks and then my son went for ACT test in school in April. He told me he did not feel well during test because of acute cold syndrome started in that test day morning. I then registered him again for June ACT test, thinking that he may need to repeat. Three weeks later, my son asked me, "do you think we can cancel the June ACT test and get the registration money back?" I became nervous: "what score you got?" "Composite 36", the voice came calmly and pleasantly. We highly recommend Mr. Stehlik for ACT tutoring. He is like an excellent carpenter, able to find a small hole and put the nail on the hole to make the whole piece perfect and firm!

I highly recommend Sarah for ACT tutoring. She worked with my daughter on the ACT and helped her raise her score from a 31 to a 34. Even more amazing, is that my daughter's weakest subject used to be English, and Sarah helped her master the subject, which helped my daughter earn a 35 in the English section. Sarah is extremely knowledgeable and has a great approach to working with kids.

About

Charlie tutored my son for the ACT and did an exceptional job. He worked with him both on general test taking skills as well as the specific areas where he needed the most help. Charlie is great at working with boys who do not have the longest attention span, as well as those who may not feel they "need" tutoring. He really caters his tutoring style to what he believes will work best for that student. Charlie is also very flexible and was able to work in tutoring time around my son's other activities. After working with Charlie, my son felt much more confident in his ability to do well on the test and improved his scores significantly in all areas. We will be using him again for my daughter in a couple of years.

About

Sean Francis, Ph.D. designed and taught a continuing education course for myself and 6 friends, all busy professionals with a desire to expand our knowledge in an area we knew little about but desired to know more. The course was an introductory overview in the appreciation, structure/form and history of Poetry. We met monthly for well over a year and covered Poetry from A to Z. What impressed all of us was his enthusiasm about the beauty in the images and thoughts expressed through the assembly of words, the recall of entire poems, knowledge of the poet's personal history, the particular culture that gave root to poets' expressions and appreciation for all variations of form and content in poetry. In a word, we were "wowed". There was no element in his lessons that could have been improved. He was always well organized. He added audio recordings, encouraged our own interpretations and reading aloud to understand cadence. It was delightfully interactive. His charm and humor simply topped off what we all found to be a completely pleasurable and stimulating lesson on Poetry.

Marcia always arrives on time. She is tutoring my seven year old son. She is tutoring him in math and reading. On the first session. She notice, that Cody had trouble reading. That is what, Cody's teacher told me. So, I know Marcia was on point. She left me some books and sight words. So I could read and review them with Cody this week. I noticed that Cody was stumbling over some of the words, in the book. So I had Cody to sound out the words. Making him remember his phonics skills. That his teacher taught him during this school year.

About

Hello! My name is Enyi O., and I just graduated from Harvard University in May 2013. At Harvard, I majored in Neurobiology with a minor in Global Health and Health Policy. I also served as president of Harvard's Nigerian Student Association and manager of the Harvard Men's Varsity Tennis Team. Before I left for Harvard, I attended Marian Catholic High School, where I was captain of the tennis team and a National Honor Society board member. While in high school, I scored a 35 on the ACT (35 English, 36 Math, 34 Reading, and 34 Science) and scored above 700 on 3 different SAT II Subject Tests (770 Math Level II, 760 Chemistry, and 710 History). Since then, I've been able to help over 85 students improve their ACT scores by an average of 4.3 points. In the past, I've worked for Revolution Prep, a leading national test prep company, and Gold Test Prep, a test prep company run by Harvard students. Right now, I'm preparing for business school, and I'm looking to help out current high-school students who wish to score high on the ACT or SAT. I'm offering one-on-one tutoring, both online and in person in the south suburbs of Chicago. I am flexible in regards to price and location, because I truly love to help students achieve their ACT score goals. Having applied and been accepted to 20 highly selective colleges (including all the Ivy Leagues), I am also providing extensive college admissions consulting, from general application strategies and essay reviews to mock interviews. Finally, in terms of tutoring and admissions consulting, I am offering free 30-minute to 1-hour consultations to discuss student goals, general test strategies, and the college admissions process. Please feel free to contact me if you want to know more about my services or experience. Thank you!

My professional service is personalized as I work to present the more challenging concepts in multiple, different ways -- that is, different ways of thinking about and grasping the concept -- after observing their unique approach to the material. Part of my method also involves bringing a relaxed, positive energy to the table to boost their confidence and level their perspective.

About

My love of teaching comes from a lifelong love of learning. I have been a student for most of my life; I recently received my master's degree in biology this past May 2014. I am excited to help students improve their grades and to help them enjoy learning as much as I do. I have a passion for ACT prep and have taken the test and scored within the 95th percentile on multiple occasions. I have been tutoring high school students for the past several months, and I am looking to add on a few more students for the summer. I am also passionate about biology and other related topics and would love to help you achieve great success in your science classes! Since I am relatively new to tutoring, my rates are low and negotiable. I am willing to meet you at a local library, a bookstore or a coffee shop. I also offer a free consultation prior to tutoring to make sure that it's a good fit!
