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.

I was taught by Jack in my college. He helped me a lot, not only in my study, but also gave me a lot of instructions and suggestions in my future options. When I applied for my master degree, he helped me search informations about different universities and majors and wrote me recommendation letter. Also he really made a lot contribution to my college, which is North American college Jiangnan University. He got up early every morning to help those who study English in the morning, help them speaking, reading and pronunciation. I really appreciate his help, with his help I successfully enrolled in Australia National University, majoring in master of actuarial studies.

Hntsa Asgedom ACT Tutoring

If your looking for a great tutor look no further! We picked Hntsa to help our son increase his ACT score two points to help him qualify for an academic scholarship. Two points isn't a huge jump, but we only had five weeks to prepare and the last two ACT tests resulted in the same score. After reading Hntsa's background information and reviews we decided to give him a call. It was the best decision we ever made. Hntsa is intellectual, methodical, patient, and insightful. He took the time to really understand our son's strengths and weaknesses so that he could use that information to develop a tutoring plan that was specific to our son. The resources that he had available were abundant up to and including a watch to help keep track of time when doing a practice a test or taking it live. Hntsa also understands how the test is put together, how it works, and the best way to attack it. He also know how to speak to teens in a way that is not condescending. Our son increased his composite score by three points and his STEM score by four! Now, our son put in a lot of effort to get that score, but he never would have done it on his own. We already tried. He needed someone like Hntsa. A tutor that was genuinely interested in him not just as a student, but as a person. It's rare to find people who love what they do so much that their enthusiasm rubs off on you! That's what happened with my son and I think the learning lessons that Hntsa gave my son will stay with him beyond the ACT test. We are eternally grateful for everything he did. You will be too.

Remy was indispensably helpful in editing my papers. Her knowledge of good writing techniques and command of language helped transform my work to new levels. She provides great tips for how to strengthen your argument and how to add the strongest types of evidence and analysis to your work. I've never received such useful, personalized advice in or out of school. I will reach out in a heartbeat to her for my next project, and I would definitely recommend her!

Lucille helped me with editing papers for my Master's degree. I was so pleased with the results, and hired her to help my daughter with her High School creative writing assignments! When I learned that she also did tutoring for reading, I asked her to help my elementary school Granddaughter, with reading comprehension. She has a special way of teaching which made the work fun while achieving success. Her writing abilities are evident in her published books for children and adults. I have read and enjoyed all of them. I highly recommend her services.

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.

John did an excellent job restoring 2 photos for me that had been damaged due to being stuffed in a tight space. He was able to restore the photos to nearly perfect, and I will now be able to re-print the photos to save the memories. John worked very quickly, taking only 2 days to restore the photos. Furthermore, the job was fairly straightforward, so everything could be done through Thumbtack. However, he is willing to meet clients with larger projects and walk them through the process.

Our 1st grade son has been tutored by Kathy in reading for several months now. We are very satisfied with the progress he has made with Kathy's help! In reading he was behind and struggling; losing interest and motivation in school. Our son loves to work with Kathy on a weekly basis. He has developed reading skills and techniques which have improved his reading ability significantly. Kathy is kind, patient and flexible. She finds a time for tutoring that works best for both of our schedules. She is on time and dependable. Kathy's expertise in reading has made all the difference for our son!

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!

I was having a lot of problems with essay writing and math. The tutor that was given to me was able to help me with both subjects. I'm very relieved. I recommended Arbor to several of my family members who also had similar results.

Strategic Tutoring

I highly recommend Strategic Tutoring by Mrs. Mack. Financially I am struggling to make ends me but wanted to help my children succeed in school. Since my good friend also had children that needed extra help, Mrs. combined the kids into 2 small groups which gave them the support the needed and kept the hourly fee down. Instead if paying $45 an hour my girlfriend and I spent $28 an hour which was manageable. Mrs. Mack tutored my 9th grade son and my friend's 10th grade daughter together at the Geneva library. She selected reading, writing, and science topics materials that were intetesting to the kids and also pertinent to what they were studying at school. She took the time to talk to the teachers and even was involved in a conference at the school. The kids were very eager to see Mrs. Mack each week so we actually increased the time to 90 minutes a week and I am happy to say after a few sessions the classroom teachers noticed significant improvement in their reading fluency and comprehension even in biology and modern world social studies and this was reflected in their grades and attitude. My younger son in 3rd grade was tutored with my friend's 2nd grade daughter. Mrs. Mack took time journal writing back and forth with both of them secretly working on writing skills which did help to improve their essay and creative writing skills. Her positive attitude and friendly demeanor created a spark in the kids and after about a month they made significant progress in decoding words more automatically, understanding what was being read, increased rate of math computation, and improved writing structure and creativity. The kids actually understand and know how to apply various strategies that Mrs. Mack taught. She spent time with me explaining these strategies and providing me with a "strategy cheat sheet" so that we all ( teachers, parents, tutor) used a common language when guiding or reminding the kids how to solve a problem with reading, writing, or math. Mrs. Mack went beyond what I ever expected in a tutor and her experience with ESL, Special Education, Behavior Disordered, and Gifted students was apparent wben she took initiative to set up some enrichment activites for my 5th grader on her own time!

I'm very quick when it comes to finding out how a tutee works, and what works well with them. I start with a few simple questions, and go from there.

About

I have taught reading, writing, thinking, speaking, listening, critical thinking for the past fifteen years. I also have a daughter in school, so I can see both sides of the education system. Fun works. Rigor works. Students having a voice works. I can help people navigate grades, tests, and most of all learning! I have also begun writing digital curriculum, pushing my thinking about how to design and measure learning. I would love to write more curriculum that works as games do.

Students tell me I'm easy to talk to because I listen to them, then help them see how to improve their writing. As a published author, I've learned how the rewriting process can really improve any piece of writing.
