We found a great fit you my son together. He's Math test scores went up within the first two sessions! -Make this investment.
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!
Jeff was working with my son on getting ready for ACT this year. My son is a junior at high school. He is a good student, however, wasn't satisfied with his initial ACT score. We found Jeff through Thumbtack based on customer reviews. I'm glad we did. After several lessons with Jeff, my son's ACT score went 5 points up. Jeff is great about building lessons around subjects and topics that require more attention. The test taking strategies that he teaches are definitely very helpful. Jeff is very punctual and responsible. He was willing to accommodate my son's busy schedule. I highly recommend Jeff to students (and parents) who are looking for help with ACT and SAT.
Bertina is very understanding when it comes to working with families. She is very easy to work with and helped to tutor my daughter in ACT prep. I'm definitely going to have her come back to work with my son as well!
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
Mr. Glen is the best tutor in the world. He worked with my son and daughter in math and ACT Prep. He supported my daughter in Geometry, Calculus. Algebra II / Trigonometry, Calculus AB and ACT Prep. He supported my son in the same areas plus Algebra. It's is very important to him that your children fully understands the concepts and are not simply working problems by memorizing steps. He truly cares about your children performing at the highest level. There were times if he didn't finish something with them during the hour, he would call the house to follow up. He always keeps my husband and I posted on their progress and he let's them know directly how well they are doing. He really allowed my husband and I to have peace of mind by helping to prepare our kids academically. He is very professional and works with us to accommodate busy schedules by having hours later in the evening. Both my sone and daughter respected Mr Glen and enjoyed what he helped them accomplish. We thank God that Mr Glen is a part of our village.
Tim did a great job with my daughter preparing for the ACT. He helped with strategies for the test as well as with getting in the proper frame of mind for preparing and taking the test. He is very flexible with scheduling and extremely responsive. With his excellent coaching, she raised her score from 31 to 34. He is a fantastic tutor.
Steve was outstanding for our daughter. Our daughter is at a boarding school on the east coast but wanted to start test prep this summer while home. Steve and our daughter spent 18 hours in total getting her ready for her ACT and her score improved by 2 points, from a 31 in her untimed baseline that Steve gave to a 33 in her first attempt at the actual test this November. Steve was extraordinarily flexible in his interaction with our daughter, going from in person sessions while she was here at home, to remote and video sessions once she returned to school. He used a variety of materials and assessments to hone in on the specific places where she needed work, and clearly it made a big difference. Maybe most importantly he clearly connected with our daughter and gave her confidence and test taking skills that were important to her, particularly since she did not go into this as a strong standardized test performer. I don't think we could be happier in our choice of Steve--he is an outstanding tutor and truly customizes his interacation with his students in a way that is impressive, delivering not only great results, but a more confident and calmer student who knows they are ready.
Ramona truly is an excellent teacher. Since her job also involves a lot of calculation and physics, she really knows what she is talking about, which also gives her the ability to explain things in a very logical and understandable way. After preparing for tests together with Ramona I’ve never felt unsafe or unprepared. My grades also experienced a great increase after starting to work with her.
Always patient and thorough. Really great tutor for middle school math and pre-calculus. My daughter wishes the tutor would be her math teacher! She is finally pulling As in her class consistently. Thank you! My son is improving his grades also! Very happy to have found Michael!
remy was a wonderful tutor! she helped me prep in a short period of time to take the SAT, and with her guidance i felt more confident going into the test. Plus I got a great score! Couldn’t recommend her enough!
Hands down the best LSAT tutors ever! I worked with David and Hana. They knew how to turn a rather dry test into a fun and personable event. My score jumped from a 157 to a 170!!! Enough said, no?
My tutor was Renjie Abraham. He was very organized and methodical in the way gen taught. His teaching was easy to understand and very helpful. He was really easy going and a great tutor! I would recommend him to anyone looking to improve their test scores!
Both of our children attended their clinic, and we are very pleased with the results. Our daughter is much more prepared for high school, especially relative to the standardized tests, and our son needed the extra focus while in grammar school. We are very appreciative.
I am an older student returning to college after being out of school for 18 years! My first course I'm taking is algebra. The word problems have been giving me quite a bit of issues. Tonight she explained them in a way that made sense, let me perform them, and corrected me if I was making a mistake. Also, she explained why I was making the mistake and how to fix it. I walked away from the session much more comfortable and feeling capable to pass this class now. Furthermore, her rate is very reasonable and worth every penny. I would definitely recommend her for tutoring.
After completing the ACT prep course at Learning Ascent, my son got a composite score of 30. English: 32, Math: 33, Reading: 29, and Science: 26. He took the writing portion too, but we do not have results for that yet. Prior to tutoring, his score on a practice ACT test was a 26. The tutors Sean worked with helped him improve his scores. Overall, very happy with his results!
Mr.Acharya is a genius math teacher and I am very much impressed with his style of teaching which helps students to achieve good grades in tests. Thank you!
After deciding to return to school, and complete my degree, the last class I had to take was a Technical Math class. Being years later, this class was no longer offered - I had to take it as an independent student, meaning I had no instructor, or class to show up to, only a syllabus and a Math book. A Math assistance area was available to students, and there I met the tutor I write of here. Of the 6 to 8 tutors available, I signed up with Dave as much as possible. The class I was taking dealt with Algebra, Geometry, Trigonometry as well as an introduction to Calculus. I could barely remember how to factor a problem, but working with Dave, he spent the time to help me get through the basics, and had the patience to answer many of my off the wall questions, and many that I thought were unrelated. The first test I took before I asked for any assistance, I had totally bombed. A 47... I knew I'd need help and after working with Dave for a week and a half, the retake test I took got me an 88. Dave helped me gain the confidence I needed to figure out problems on my own, and showed me how I could apply other concepts and equations from other chapters and solve new problems in a variety of ways. I am on my last exam now, and I still choose to wait in line to work with this excellent tutor, when there are another 5 available at any time. If you are in need of assistance with Math, and are looking for someone to help you either from the very basics to intermediate and advanced topics, I would highly recommend Dave as he is an outstanding tutor, with loads of patience and knowledge, as well as being incomparable to other tutors in his willingness to help and assist you as much as you need. Thanks Dave!
Mr. K's math camp was a wonderful addition to the Price Hill and surrounding communities as well as Price Hill Recreation Center, where the program was conducted. He produced amazing results with some of our most challenging kids. Mr. K combined Montessori, holistic theory and common sense to help focus kids so they could learn and bring up test results. As both parents and kids enthusiastically embraced this program, it was always well attended. The only downside was, the program had to end due to a loss of funding. We certainly miss the Math Camp as it excellently served our littlest citizens in a comprehensive and very caring way.
Michelle worked with my 4 year old so to prep him for kindergarten due to him not being in preschool. He enjoyed her company, and she was a pleasure to have. I highly recommend her.
