Anderson tutoring (Bertina Specifically) helped my son work on more advanced math so he could get into higher math in Jr. High.
Laura has been my tutor for Precalculus for almost a year now and I must say every penny paid is worth it. She has helped me score the highest I ever have in math and she continues to help me clear my confusion. She uses clear and useful techniques to teach me how simplify any problem I may be having. She is very adaptable to what kind of learner I am as well. I have not had even one time where I have left tutoring feeling unsatisfied or with a headache from learning. Apart from being a phenomenal tutor, Laura is a very kind and intellectual person as well. She makes time to know you as an individual and is always ready to help. I could not be happier with my decision to go to her for math help.
Renji is AMAZING! I could not have been blessed with a better tutor, I guarantee that he will help you raise your ACT score or help you in whatever way needed for tutoring. He uses Apple technology during the lesson and does a great job explaining in detail how to get an answer. If you have Renji as your tutor, you have the best tutor!!
We did both online and in-home tutoring and liked both.
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!!
Tim did a fantastic job tutoring my son for the ACT. He totally understood where to concentrate their time. Highly recommend.
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.
Jasmine was extremely helpful - significantly better than any professional tutoring service I attended. Not only does she know the material but she can explain it in a way that makes sense and she gave me examples and outside work to further my understanding. I was getting a D in my class and with her help I passed with a 93% on my final exam. I would definitely recommend her as a tutor and I wish I would have found her sooner!
Bonnie Dane has been a stellar English tutor for our high school son. She has been working with him since he was a sophomore and throughout his junior year. She helped with ACT prep, vocabulary development, composition, style, grammar, pertinent English homework when necessary, essays etc. Bonnie always used a professional approach to accomplish these objectives, coupled with humor, sensitivity, individualized her approach to our son's learning style and helped increase his critical thinking ability. She is reliable and trustworthy. Bonnie has helped our son have As in English and Speech. We are most grateful that we found Bonnie. Our son has really come to appreciate his sessions with Ms Dane. We highly recommend Bonnie for other students and trust she will make a big difference in their learning experience.
She helped my daughter understand in 1 hour what her geometry teacher could not for half a year. It was amazing and awesome. My daughter is so excited that she understands her geometry now!
We really enjoyed what B wise has done with our children. They were able to identify a plan for both of them and we saw a increase in grades on the next grade cycle. Looking forward to more sessions.
I personalize my approach to the students I am working with. I do not have a 'one-size fits-all" style. This benefits the student because I take a session to get to know them and how they approach reading/writing; I learn their goals and what they think they struggle with. Then we work together to overcome the challenges.
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.
