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!
Bertina was my daughter’s ACT Prep Tutor last semester. Bertina gave her the confidence and encouragement I was looking for. She was always positive; and it was definitely a team effort between them. She was very flexible with our study sessions and kept me in the loop about my daughter’s progress. She is a very kind and polite person and would be wonderful for any age group.
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.
Great tutor! She was able to work around our schedule and helped my son prepare for his ACT. My Son Brian said he thought he did much better on the reading section (of his ACT). He said he used several strategies you taught Him. He also said the math on this past test was much harder than on the first ACT he took, but he was able to finish most it on the test this time. If he takes it again in June I will probably be calling you (depending on his score). I also gave your email address to my friend whose son is Brian's age and preparing for the ACT in June as well. Thanks Again!
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!
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.
My daughter became more confident in her math skills. She was able to raise her Math ACT score after tutoring.
During my junior year of high school, I was struggling to improve my math and science scores on the ACT. But after being referred to Hntsa, my scores quickly improved. Hntsa was able to use visual learning and cogent explanations to help me better understand how to tackle this test. Hntsa believed that practice questions were the key to success; his methods proved to be greatly beneficial. I would attempt practice questions while he was there to patiently explain how to solve the problems when I got stuck. His line of thinking helped to improve the way I looked at the test, and I credit him to significantly improving my scores. Thanks, Hntsa!!
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
I've been working with Suzanne for about three months now, and I'm so pleased with my progress in that short time! As an adult student who hasn't played in nearly 20 years, it's an understatement to say I'm rusty. Suzanne has patiently done a great job of working with me to assess my current skill level, build on my past experience, and work toward steady improvement in each week's lesson. She also set up lessons for my specific goals. Im never going to be a concert pianist I just want to re-learn my technical skills and get back to regular, comfortable, confident playing. Shes perfectly fine with that unlike some teachers who push you to be someone you are not, or who are only comfortable with competitive students. As someone who squeezes lessons and practice into a very hectic schedule, I also appreciate that she understands when, in some weeks, I make more progress than others. Ive had several teachers over the years. What sets Suzanne apart is that she suggests music for me, but also encourages me to trust my own intuition and preferences about what I'm ready to play. Shes direct but patient in her teaching style, praising what is working well, but clearly pointing out technique or practice approaches that will help the music get better faster. I also understand she conducts annual, optional recitals, which is great for building confidence and meeting new people. In terms of the teaching experience, Suzannes home studio is lovely, with two Yamaha pianos - one an upright, one a baby grand, both with beautiful voices. It's very rewarding to have the option to play both. From a scheduling standpoint, she conveniently texts for scheduling changes, and shes flexible when lesson times inevitably have to change. The true test for me is that my family and friends have all commented on how much progress Ive made in the last few months. Even my 5-year-old says, You play beautifully, Mama. Im back to practicing every day, enjoying the unique stress relief and satisfaction of making your own music. All thanks to Suzanne!
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.
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!
My son is in high school he is in upper college prep Geomatry. He said in 1 hour with Candace he learned more then he has the first semester at school. Highly recommend
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?
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!
Jerry was a great hire! Professional, personal, and persistent in helping with my ACT prep!
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.
Mrs.Morris tutored me in the subject Reading in preparation for my second try at the ACT standardized test. My score increased by 3 increasing my overall score by 2 points. I was very pleased considering I had only had one session with her. I would recommend her services to anyone.
