Resume writing - Jennifer applied quickly to my response and worked diligently to provide me a resume within a few short hours. She was understanding and completed it to my liking. Thank you
Ms. Belle has tutored my twins since September 2016. She is great with them and they love working with her. I have seen significant improvements in my kids' written ability in terms of clarity, volume, flow, and style. They are in the 5th Grade AAP Level IV program in FCPS and are now comfortable constructing multiple paragraphs to express their ideas or tell a story. My daughter is especially confident and excited in her writing since working with Ms. Belle. My son's ability to write about his passion for sports has soared. The effort is reflected in the last two report cards and in the grades that they receive on their language arts projects. I highly recommend Ms. Belle as a language arts tutor and we will continue to engage her services.
My experience with Erin was very brief but, very helpful and enjoyable. My 4th grader needed help with his writing. she did a very thorough assessment of his ability and proceeded. It was summer and we had a lot of travel and were not consistent clients. We are currently looking to rehire and work with her this winter/spring.
I worked many hours with Emily in TOP SCORE EDU with essays along with GRE Prep. She was full of energy and always pushing me to do better and helping me focus on my weak points to make them strong. It was always a pleasure to sit down with Emily and work. My GRE increased immensely and also my writing and outlining skills. It was a perfect fit for me.
Mr. Mullen's attention to detail, and professionalism are unmatched. Tom is very personable, and takes a keen interest in clearly understanding the client's skill sets. My abilities, and accomplishments were clearly highlighted. Tom consistently went above and beyond, ensuring I was aware of job alerts, interview techniques, and upcoming job fairs. He, and his wife are a great resume writing team, and I am confident my cover letter/resume will open many doors.
I worked with Lotus Prep when preparing to take the LSAT about a year ago. Before I started working with Michael, I was struggling to get the score that I wanted and needed to get into law school. After meeting with Michael twice a week for 3-4 months, everything started to click as he was able to help me simplify each question and pick the right answers, rather than over analyze which I had been doing. Through our sessions I was able to improve my score by 15 points. I applaud Michael for his patience and genuine service. I would highly recommend his company for anyone looking for tutoring services and achieving a more desirable score.

She was able to provide immediate remedies to assist my kids in various subject areas. My kids truly enjoy their tutoring sessions and I'm very pleased with the results.
Mary worked with my son (a sophomore in high school) for nine weeks, and the change in my son's confidence with writing improved significantly. Starting in first grade he developed a dislike for writing, which over the years turning into almost a phobia. He was so intimidated by the process, that he would rather fail than turn in an essay. As a result, he never really learned HOW to write, and his anxiety increased. Mary worked with him, starting with the basics of how to map out and organize a persuasive essay. What took him hours before, he was able to accomplish in less than half an hour. It was very empowering, and helped him considerably with facing writing tasks. One thing that I didn't expect with a writing tutor was Mary's incorporation of subtle life coaching. She had him examine his motivations and his goals. They even did personality testing. I think it was very eye-opening for him to have the chance to look at himself from a different vantage point. Her approach is very supportive and validating. She knows what to ask to make you (both the student and the parent) feel important and interesting. Finally, one of the things I appreciated most as a parent, was that she sent me an email after every session detailing what they had done and explaining her plans for the next session. I can't recommend her highly enough.
Ive met lots of people that are multilingual, but none that have the command of speaking and writing several languages that Yolanda Goss has. I was fortunate enough to meet Yolanda when I was an undergraduate in college. While I was satisfied with passing three terms of French, she was mastering that and more taking courses in grammar, German, and working on a project where she taught English as a second language. My relationship proved very fortunate when I was recommended for a scholarship to attend a German university, where I would be taking undergraduate level courses at the University of Goettingen. This was a competitive scholarship and at the time, I only had one semesters worth of German. I needed to learn as much German as I possibly could and I knew that Yolanda could help me. Her plan was that during my senior undergraduate year I would skip straight from the first semester to the third semester. It turned out that I would be accepted in the third semester German class if I could prove mastery of the second semester through a spoken and written exam. Our goal was to pass that exam with Yolanda preparing for the grammar, vocabulary and speech component during the summer break. German is not a straightforward language with its three genders and tricky prepositions, but Yolanda made it seem easy, often illustrating her points with information from other languages. Long story short, I passed my entrance exam to third semester German with flying colors. My accomplishments in qualifying for third-semester German were certainly noticed and I was able to win my scholarship and go overseas. Furthermore, when I arrived at the University of Goettingen I passed the German comprehension exam with high marks on the very first attempt. I credit that achievement to Yolanda. Second semester German deals with future tenses and subjective constructions; its beyond introductory phrases and conversational vocabulary. Yolanda helped me build the foundation to put it all in perspective. Ive always been impressed with Yolandas ability to make learning languages seem simple. She has incredible patience and a real love for learning and teaching. I think shes a great resource for anyone needing an instructor, teacher or tutor and I give her a heartfelt recommendation.
Tutoring - I am happy to tailor the tutoring experience to meet individual needs. I work together with students to create a plan for tutoring that may involve outside reading and "homework" assignments - if appropriate - to reinforce material covered in lessons. I am also adept at sensing when I may need to shift teaching methods or the pace of lessons for students and I encourage them to provide ongoing constructive feedback. Translations - I have been told that my translations get to the feel and intent of the original writing, beyond simply interpreting the literal meaning. Simply put, I take great care with my word choice in order to reflect the style, tone and subtlety of meaning conveyed by the author as closely as possible. Editing - I love that part of being a good editor is being a good teacher. I make recommendations to improve written material, and if I do my job well, the client learns something from the process. For example, perhaps they will gain insight on how to: make smooth transitions between paragraphs, provide sufficient evidence to support an argument, or reduce unnecessary words for clearer, more concise sentences.
She is great with my son! He has made great progress in reading and writing. He went from reading two years below grade level to reading on grade level a year later. His math skills are improving everyday and he loves leaving now!
My focus is to improve each student's performance in reading and writing, with proven results in better grades and higher test scores. I provide, as desired and needed by the individual student, the following: - Guidance in offering exercises, assignments, models, and practical tips for effective writing - Constructive review and critique of student writing - Training and exercises in correct English grammar and usage
Nancy is always punctual and prepared for teaching different lessons. She is a great listener and instructor since she is able to connect with students effectively when teaching various lessons. She uses different methods of teaching which helps students learn since they are responsive to the different techniques implemented. She is great colleague who is always helpful to others and maintains her priority on her students. I think that Nancy is always able to overcome any challenges that students face as she is always helpful and has had previous experience teaching students of all levels. I think that she has great work quality, that she is professional and she is always a pleasure to work with.
We can help students deal with subjects in Math, Calculus, Algebra, Statistics, Economics, and Finance. We also assist them in writing, editing, and more.
I am just starting, and I hope to make a good impression. I feel that having a wonderful relationship with clients is meeting them at the point of their needs and also making a very solid impression, if and when the teacher-student relationship is in force. I also believe that every inch of information should be taken in by the student. I hope to do very well, so at the moment, there is no business name.
I provide tutoring in math, writing, English, science, and other academic subjects. Contact me today.

I ordered handmade birthday and holiday cards to send to my clients. They are awesome! They are so personal and beautiful. I love the artwork, and the original haiku inside... So creative, original and unique! I was previously using Sendout Cards to send my client's b-day and holiday cards because of their convenience. But I just love the personal touch and creativity Tequila's cards give and I can't wait to send these gems to my clients! :)
I've trusted Katie's keen eye and thoughtful critique with numerous professional and personal writing projects, including articles for publication, experimental poetry, and short fiction. In each circumstance, she was an enthusiastic and valuable guide, offering thoughtful criticism each step of the way. An accomplished and imaginative writer in her own right, I've always trusted Katie's unique insight when refining prose.
Michelle was extremely knowledgeable and had an immediate rapport with my daughter. The short term goal was to improve her grades in reading and language arts. Besides learning the material, my daughter became more open to the idea of using a tutor, and realized the benefit of doing so. You can really tell that Michelle loves kids and has a blast working with them, and that makes all the difference!
