I wanted a french tutor for my 8 year old daughter in order to improve on her conversational and comprehension in french. She is really enjoying the classes and had been improving a lot in her area 8 weaknesses.
Provides tutoring assistance to two elementary grade students (2nd & 3rd grade). Assists with developing study strategies that fits the student's individual needs. What went well - The tutor was very professional and knowledgeable about the issues my children were facing at school. 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.
Club Z is a terrific program. We loved the in home tutoring. That saved so much time for us and we used the program for two of our daughters. We did a summer reading program and SAT prep course. The tutors were highly qualified and each of them worked really well with our girls. The tutors were also very flexible and that was so appreciated with a busy household full of schedule changes. Our students are better prepared for the upcoming challenges. We highly recommend Club Z.

I am a Northern Virginia local trying my hand in multiple service industries, from offering Spanish lessons to administrative work.
Corinne was my history and philosophy tutor and helped me mostly with writing and reading comprehension. She is one of the best that I have ever met. She is patient and I’ve learned a lot from her in the last five months that she has tutored me. I am an older student who has gone back to school in order to receive my Bachelor’s Degree, which I will be receiving this September, but without Miss Corinne's help I would not have made it and this is the honest truth. She doesn’t make a person feel bad if you’re not sure of anything, she just works with you until she knows that you understand the assignment in order to pass and go forward with your next subject and until she is comfortable knowing that you now understand. You can’t asked for a better tutor than Corinne. Also, she was there to help me through some very tough times while in school, such as information that I wasn’t sure of and was afraid that I would not pass these classes if it wasn’t for Corinne’s help. As I said earlier in my letter if you decide that you ever need a tutor for your son or daughter or even yourself if you are going back to college, please chose Miss Corinne, because I highly recommend her service. She is one of the best and I am so grateful to have had the chance of meeting her especially in the time of need when I did. As they say, when God sends special people in our lives, he sends them for a reason and I was definitely sent an “Angel”.

I charge $20 per hour for comprehensive music lessons for all levels. I offer instrumental training for guitar and piano, from beginner to virtuoso. I have a tutoring capability for various levels of instruction in a scholastic sense. Inquire further, as learning parameters cannot be set until student aptitude is known.
My older daughter struggled in kindergarten with learning sight words and was losing confidence in herself as her classmates were passing her by. So, midway through the school year I started sending her to see Rachelle. By the end of the school year, my daughter completed all the sight word list that were assigned and was confidently reading more complex words and sentences. She started reading at her grade level by the next school year and has been a passionate independent reader ever since. After seeing the wonderful results, I preemptively enrolled my younger daughter to have reading lessons with Rachelle before kindergarten started. When the first day of school began, she was easily reading small books and eager for more challenging assignments. Rachelle's reading program works! My only regret is not using her sooner.
Hannah was a very patient and helpful Spanish tutor I've had. I really got results with her because she challenged me but also kept things at a good pace for me. She has an comprehensive knowledge of Spanish, but never made it overly complicated either. I'm looking forward to more lessons with her.
I learned a lot. She gave early morning lessons by Skype. We also meet for coffee some nights. The group class is cheaper with friends. The clases are fun
Kathy has been tutoring my daughter in Math for over two years My daughter has dyslexia and math is just as difficult as reading for her. Kathy recognizes my daughter's strengths and builds on them, she understand her weaknesses and boosts her confidence. Kathy knows how to keep the focus of a child and make the learning process both fun and challenging. She teaches through multi-sensory learning, acknowledging that what may work for one child does not necessarily work for another. She uses games, pictures, stories, rhymes and experience to help a child learn and understand a lesson, not just learn it by rote. My daughter enjoys and looks forward to working with Kathy each week.
Ms. Bowman is an excellent tutor who is committed to assisting children achieve their full potential, both academically and socially. As a former Co-Coordinator of the Saturday Tutoring Program sponsored by the Upsilon Tau Omega Chapter of Alpha Kappa Alpha Sorority, Incorporated, I worked with Ms. Bowen for nearly 8 years. During this time, I personally observed her ability to work with elementary school students. She is highly qualified to teach math, reading comprehension and other subjects using novel and easy-to-learn methods that appeal to students at all grade levels. Her personal style and ability to relate to and communicate effectively with students allows her to establish a productive learning relationship with her students. Students are never talked down to nor does she become impatient with them. If someone does not grasp a concept, she simply begins again or tries another approach. Patient and observant, Ms. Bowman engages her students and seeks to get to know them on an individual basis. She encourages them to share their academic achievements as well as their challenges and defeats. By encouraging this type of interpersonal interaction, she is able to foster an environment where students are willing to work with each other, share their talents, and become more confident in their abilities. Ms. Bowman provides intellectually stimulating assignments that not only build upon the students existing knowledge base but also challenges them to develop the best approach for solving any academic issues they face. Her instruction is focused and results in a deepening of students study skills, confidence in asking for and receiving help, and academic mastery. As a direct result of her efforts, students who are failing or performing below grade level should experience marked improvement as evidenced by improved grades and performance on state assessment tests. Because of her teaching ability and commitment and dedication to the academic success of children, I highly recommend Ms. Bowman as a tutor. I believe that anyone engaging her services will find that they made the right decision. Tonya R. McCullough
Wendy was amazing! She taught me how to read patterns and told me not to be afraid to improvise if needed to make it work. It was just what I needed. My pattern turned out great and I feel great about my edits to it. I would defiantly hire her again!
I met with Alex on a regular basis for over a year so he could help me write academic English in the context of my Masters, as well as improve my spoken English - which is almost fluent without being native. He also proof read my papers and thesis. I thought his skills in teaching to be outstanding. Very encouraging and patient, he took these lessons very seriously, as classes could be postponed but never cancelled, which ensured a much needed regularity. His way of teaching is pleasant and never monotonous; he manages to convey his enthusiasm very well; I felt encouraged to sustain my efforts, week by week, especially as my progress was visible. I would strongly recommend Alex for anyone willing to learn or improve their language skills - either in French of in English, as his French was as good as mine (a native speaker).
Ms. Monique is very knowledgeable and patient. She teaches Language Arts in a way that my son can grasp and retain. She was able to assess his weaknesses in reading comprehension and tailored the tutoring to strengthen those areas. She even has mnemonics that she created to help him remember reading strategies. As the new school year begins, she will tutor my son in writing. I am confident that she will introduce tools that will enable my son to be the best writer he can be.
