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.

I had a few lessons with Marina, to improve my written English. My English is very advanced but I needed help with writing. She was extraordinary at the job, she has a great feeling for the language.

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!

Club Z specializes in finding you the best tutor for you. Last yr my Daughter Emily need an Algebra 2 tutor it was clear she wouldn't excel Without one. Club Z found us the perfect tutor. They got along well and for the first time she really understand Algebra. Not all tutors are the same we had one the previous year (not through Club Z) and no help what so ever. My daughter was very reluctant to try another tutor but was so happy we tried Club Z.

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.

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!

    About

    Providing above-average private education is something that I am passionate about, and so therefore, take very seriously. In my approach, I attempt to locate the strengths of the student first. This is in an effort to build confidence before tackling the more difficult, less-intuitive learning obstacles. I find this method of positive-reinforcement to be most effective. Additionally, I stress discipline when instructing a student. Regardless of age, subject or skill level, I am a firm believer that the quality of input from the student has a direct impact on a successful or unsuccessful outcome. I find that I possess a unique ability to recognize the individual interests of each student and recommend new activities that promote fun while simultaneously addressing the student's weaknesses. Above all else, I enjoy tutoring because I feel genuine elation when witnessing the success of a student. For all of these reasons, I hope you can feel confident in entrusting me your own personal and educational goals.
