They have hundreds of tutors to help. This makes scheduling very easy. Especially if you do it online.
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.
Bertina is one of the best tutors out of all the tutors I had. If I don't understand a certain topic, she explains it to me in a way that I can use with certain tips to help me remember. With her help, moved my grade from a C to an A.
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.
Steve Byer is an excellent choice for an ACT tutor. As a mother of 4, I have been through many tutors. Steve Byer’s work with my daughter gave her a 4 point increase on her ACT, and brought her schools of choice within reach. Steve worked with her for about 16 hours over eight sessions to get her ready for the ACT. He used a variety of materials, including websites and prep books to help get her prepared for all the sections of the exam. Throughout the lessons, he kept detailed notes on her performance to help track improvement and kept us updated on her progress. What was especially notable were the increases in English (6-8pts) and Science (7pts). We highly recommend Steve for an ACT tutor as long as your child is prepared to do their part. My only wish was I had used him for my other 3 kids!!!
Renjie was AMAZING and so helpful!!!! Renjie worked with me for a few months studying for Quantitative GRE. He was so kind and made learning math concepts easy. I have already recommended Renjie as a tutor for friends that are about to take the test. I learned so much from Renjie, I would use him again in an instant. When I retook the test, I used Renjie's strategies and my percentile doubled over. Highly HIGHLY recommend Telos Tutors!
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 Arbor Tutors to help my daughter with chemistry and math. She ended up with As.
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!!
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
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!
Great tutor. Very intelligent and relatable. Knows how to make material interesting with age apropriate examples.
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!
Thanks to Khool tutoring my son Ethan who is in 2nd grade is now reading above grade level when he precariously struggled with reading comprehension and spelling. Not only is he more skilled his confidence has increased tremdously. His English teacher reports that he even volunteers to read aloud. I still can't believe it! Im so grateful for the time and attention my son was given. Ethan and I look forward to his next session.
Anne is an outstanding math tutor - she is patient, knowledgeable and customizes her strategies to fit the student. She tutored both my children, who had distinctly different math skills, superbly. They both aced their math classes and all math standardized testing!
Our work with Connie is continuing. She is excellent at both Reading and Math Tutoring. She is very friendly, detail oriented and patient. My kid also loves to work with her.
My son has been tutoring with Navin for a few months now and has made tremendous progress in his honors math and science courses. Navin also has been working on ACT prep with my son, which has made him more confident going into the next exam. We highly recommend Navin's tutoring services.
It was a great experience. Brittney was very courteous and professional, She made sure we were at our destination with plenty of time to spare. Our overall round trip experience with Brittney was exceptional and we’ll definitely be using her services again.
I am a certified teacher and administrator with over 15 years experience. I have worked with and taught students of all ages from Preschool through 8th grade.
Michael Hurley is simply the best. He relates well with our 14 year old son on a personal and professional level. He easily explains math concepts and their relationships that makes complete sense and encourages and motivates our son to do better. Our son enjoys math thanks to Mr. Hurley and his grades reflect his dedication and excitement for math! We are fortunate to have him as our son's tutor and friend!

I enjoy teaching math and spanish (also I can give support teaching Physics and Chemistry) My experience teaching Sciences and Math (in the U S A) is more than 5 years and in Peru is more than 15 years. Also I am a Spanish instructor at Purdue University Calumet. The first 20 minutes session will be free in order to know each other, materials and method. After that, the time is runing per hour session. Let me know if you need references.
