Ms. Sandy has been doing an awesome job at tutoring my 6 year-old son. Before he met her, my son was struggling with reading a book.(because we only speaks Korean at home) Now his reading skills are much improved and he is able to read! His grade get higher since Ms. Sandy starts to teach him. She is warm, patient and very sweet. We really want to have her to teach him more. We also recommended her to my Korean colleague, who has a 5 year-old daughter. - NamSuk Oh & KyongHwa Jung (in Chicago)
We bought a few too many tutoring sessions and they refunded us a couple of hours promptly, with no questions asked. The quality of the tutoring was top notch.
Rodrigo is fabulous! My girls have learned so much from him. He is very well organized and has various curriculum for the kids.
Wendie was an excellent tutor. Easy to schedule with and found a time and convenient location close to home. My son's score went up several points from the first time he took the ACT (before tutoring). His Reading score had a big increase send his math score went up dramatically too. My son mentioned that the tutoring also helped him in his math class at school. I would definitely hire Wendi again.
Anderson tutoring (Bertina Specifically) helped my son work on more advanced math so he could get into higher math in Jr. High.
My name is Rich. I live in Glen Ellyn. Laura Sosnowski has been tutoring my sophomore child for about a year. My child was struggling for months in Geometry, Honors Geometry and Algebra 2. We found Laura on Craigslist and she started to come and tutor my child and dramatic things began to happen. My struggling child's math grade miraculously began to improve quickly and today my child has excellent grades in math. Laura comes to our house, shows up on time and my child really enjoys her time with Laura. They sit together and spend an hour going over the math, and it's really been an amazing transformation with my child's grades. She actually enjoys math now and has an entirely new outlook and elevated level of confidence. All of this has taken place thanks to Laura's time with my child. If your child is struggling with Math, I highly recommend you call Laura and get ready to see an amazing transformation. Sincerely Rich Glen Ellyn
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 in-person tutoring at the library for math. Our tutor was excellent.
She cares about the her students and made time for him around his schedule. She could tell right away where he was struggling and willing to do whatever it takes to make sure he will pass a class that he has failed many times before. Also keeps in good communication with parents. Very happy to have found such a knowledgeable caring teacher.
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
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!
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.
Tim did a fantastic job tutoring my son for the ACT. He totally understood where to concentrate their time. Highly recommend.
David has been irreplaceable in helping me to prepare for a college level placement exam after several years with no mathematic exposure. He is obviously very passionate about what he does and it translates into the high quality of his tutoring. He gave me access to very intuitive resources and through them I’ve been able to re-learn more about math in a few months than in years during school, as well as doing so at my own pace which is extremely important to me. I really appreciate his patience, flexibility, and professionalism throughout the entire time we have worked together. Would definitely hire again if I need Math assistance in the future and would reccomend him if I knew somebody else who was struggling.
Larry was an awesome tutor. He was funny, patient, and always on time. I actually think I retained a lot of what he taught me, even though I don't like statistics, and even had fun doing it. Overall: He is a great tutor and a great guy.
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.
Amazing!!! Mrs. V made my daughter feel comfortable and smart in the short time they were together. She made great assessments with my daughter and was reviewing her current skills and helping her develop new ones through reading and play. i was throughly impressed and I'm very happy she will be working with us!
AN EXCELLENT TUTOR (!) in every aspect- very professional, responsible, and most importantly, very dedicated to her work. Marianne has been teaching both my kids (11 & 16) as their private tutor and they LOVE her classes. They think that her teaching style is very creative and effective - she uses PowerPoints, internet sources, music videos, rhymes, and games to maximize memorization. She keeps each class interesting and fun, but at the same time pays attention to details, focuses on solid grammar knowledge and proper pronunciation. Her classes are also always personalized to the needs of each of my kids. I also highly value that she does not abruptly end the class, just because the time is up; she continues to complete the concept she started on. As a parent I couldn't be happier with her work and good communication with me. She makes sure that I am well informed about the learning process - she emails me reports after each session along with practice material for my kids. She is not only an excellent tutor, but also a great person with a very pleasant personality. I would highly recommend her to everyone who wants to succeed in learning Spanish.
