Laura is very proficient with coaching English as a second language. She will teach you the skills to interact with people (e.g.: in your line of business when you are in their country) who speak other languages. The skills include learning to be comfortable with the second language, and not just with the words themselves.

Granush A. Hi, my name is Granush. I speak Armenian, German, Russian and English. I learnt English with Marina for almost a year. I was already fluent but wanted to reach near-native proficiency. Marina’s classes were really efficient and very well-organized. I liked them a lot. Marina is a motivating teacher. She always gave me a lot of speaking practice. We also worked on academic reading and writing and discussed academic articles. I am totally happy with the results of my work with Marina.

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!

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.

The best part of Ramonas tutoring was the possibility to write her a message any time of the day (or night ...) if i had trouble with my homework. I really recommend her!

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.

After my son experienced difficulties in reading at school, I made the wise decision to privately hire Mrs. Cheryl Finn to tutor him. I was very pleased with my son's gains, and I sincerely feel this was a direct result of Mrs. Finn's broad experience and expertise! My son's vocabulary, phonetic decoding, and comprehension has dramatically improved, plus his teacher and I are observing a happier, more confident reader.....thanks to Mrs. Finn!

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!

Well, MR "T" (as I called him) was a great tutor. I believe I was sixteen when my mom hired him to tutor me in reading and writing. He was very good, and, funny. I'm twenty now and a student at the U of C, and I still remember and use many of the things he taught me. Anyone would be lucky to have him as a tutor-especially in writing.
