Mrs. Ingrid has been tutoring my children for almost 9 months. She is always patient, punctual, and easy to communicate with. She selects the reading materials for the different levels my kids are on and we are very happy with the progress they made. We are looking forward to having her as our tutor for many years to come.
Just had our first lesson with Mrs. Franca. She has a solid strategy and teaching plan for helping our daughter speak the language. We especially appreciate her positive and encouraging attitude and punctuality!
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.
The best part of Ramonas tutoring was the possibility to write her a message any time of the day (or night ...) if i had trouble with my homework. I really recommend her!
I am an older student returning to college after being out of school for 18 years! My first course I'm taking is algebra. The word problems have been giving me quite a bit of issues. Tonight she explained them in a way that made sense, let me perform them, and corrected me if I was making a mistake. Also, she explained why I was making the mistake and how to fix it. I walked away from the session much more comfortable and feeling capable to pass this class now. Furthermore, her rate is very reasonable and worth every penny. I would definitely recommend her for tutoring.
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
Marissa was an excellent tutor! She helped me with my English homework and because of her I got a much better grade in the class. I feel like I am a better writer because of her and I use the skills she gave me in all of my writing assignments now. She was incredibly professional but also very friendly and easy to talk to. Essay writing is now so much easier for me because of the the things Marissa taught me. I would recommend Marissa as a tutor to anyone looking to improve their writing.
Dena is a very professional math tutor, she is very patient and full of knowledge and expertise for the subject of math. Highly recommend!
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!
Anderson tutoring (Bertina Specifically) helped my son work on more advanced math so he could get into higher math in Jr. High.
Tim did a fantastic job tutoring my son for the ACT. He totally understood where to concentrate their time. Highly recommend.
I had a great experince taking accent reduction lessons with Cindy. She is very clear when teaching the matrials. I am very happy that I learned new ways to sound words that I used to say them wrong.
I cannot say enough about Amina. She tutored my daughter in French throughout high school at Hinsdale Central and then again in college over one summer. Amina always knew how to make the material understandable to my daughter in a way that she could comprehend and begin to understand the structures of the French language. She was patient but challenging at the same time. I know without Amina's help my daughter would not have been as successful. Her support gave my daughter the confidence she needed to conquer the language. Our schedule was very busy and Amina always worked with us to make scheduling tutoring time possible for both of us. She was always on time and would always follow up if the schedule needed to be changed. I highly recommend her to anyone.
She is wonderful to work with and explained the toughest concept with ease. She definitely help me improve my grade and study habits. I would recommend her tutoring services to anyone in need. 👍🏾
