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)

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.

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.

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!

Mrs. Maikisch has really helped my daughter a lot. I have seen the progress of my daughter reading level and her comprehension. She has been very flexible with me with my work schedule to help my daughter build her reading comprehension and skills. My daughter was struggling in reading, but now her reading is a a lot better. Her reading level was at a first grade level but I have seen her reading progress tremendously. Thank you, Mrs. Maikisch

    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.

    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!

    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.

    About

    I was a home-school mom for over 10 years. So, although I am not a certified teacher, I am a mother who taught and directed three children in how to learn and learn independently. Primary grades are my specialty, especially reading skills, foundational math principles, spelling, and English language basics. While I home educated, I’ve managed an apartment building in Chicago, part-time. I have been managing this property for 24 years. It is a part-time position, and I am seeking additional work at this time. I really like kids (our house is too quiet), and I enjoy helping them get excited about reading and learning. Let me help your kids to lay the solid foundation they will need to love learning for the rest of their lives.

    Hire skilled professionals for absolutely everything.
