Top Rated Social Studies Tutors Around Ashburn, VA
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.
Dale was a great ACT tutor, especially when it came to teaching an international student the ins and outs of the Reading and Writing sections. Since we started working two weeks before the test date, Dale laid out a great strategy of drilling practice tests and helped us find our weak points to review. He had a great base of resources and experience to help us not only with tactics and test taking skills, but how we could apply these study techniques to a broad range of tests and classes.
My son's tutor has worked with him for more than a year transitioning from elementary school to middle school. The tutor showed great flexibility in subject areas and was able to help in virtually any school subject including English, science, math, world studies, and French. My son's improvement and added self confidence has been fantastic!
Michael really helped my son with Social studies and Language Arts, my son was able to improved his grades to an A, and we will continue using his services for next year.
Working with Tom was a great experience. I am looking for a social work position with the military and Tom had much to offer in my endeavor. He reworded areas of my resume to say what I had written but in half the space and more to the point. He went out of his way in making my cover letter and resume appropriate for either a position with the military or with a civilian agency. I was very impressed with his skills in organization. He showed me how to include positions from years ago without keeping them in the forefront. I would recommend him to everyone, whatever position they are pursuing. He has the talent to look at any resume, listen to what you want to stand out and put it all in perspective and produce a professional resume.
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

Julia worked with my son throughout his Junior year in high school to help him with Geometry. They met twice a week for an hour over this time. Julia was everything you want in a tutor, reliable, flexible and patient! My son passed the class with a B with Julia's help. Julia also taught my son good homework and study skills. He trusted her and worked very well with her. I highly recommend Julia as a tutor.
I met Lauren while she worked as an elementary school teacher at my children's parochial school in southern California. She is an excellent teacher in the classroom, providing sound instruction on the school's curriculum, as well as positive feedback to her students. My middle daughter struggled in elementary school. After having Lauren as her teacher, I hired her to tutor my daughter's during the years of 5th-7th grade. My daughter struggled in several areas including: math, reading comprehension, study skills and writing. Lauren met with my daughter in our home on a weekly basis. She used the curriculum that the parochial school provided, as well as, she incorporated different learning modalities, which assisted my daughter in the understanding the various concepts. Today, my daughter is a senior at a university back east, majoring in kinesiology and will graduate in May 2016. I believe Lauren gave my daughter the skills and the confidence she needed to be successful in school. Thank you again Lauren!!! T.S Garden Grove, CA

Creates building blocks for your success After taking a group class and not achieving the results I was hoping for, I enlisted the help of Reetika to better prepare for my next attempt. Reetika is a great tutor, she takes the time to understand your ultimate goals and then builds out a clear path on how she is going to get you there. She creates a scheduled curriculum, tailors her style to your learning style and gives you the foundation you need to achieve your desired results. With Reetika's help I was admitted to every school I applied to and had fun while learning new approaches. I highly recommend Reetika as a tutor if you are preparing for the GMAT.
Ms. Heim does amazing work with helping students bring their grades up. My daughter was failing most of her classes and she has brought her grades up to where she is passing them. Ms. Heim has shown my daughter study skills as well as how to stay organized. She continues to work with my daughter on any struggles she has with her school work. Very impressed with Ms. Heim's professionalism and hard work to help her clients be successful
Maria Jose is a great tutor! I have been learning Spanish with her for a little over a month and I am getting much better quickly which is actually quite suprising considering I hardly spoke any previously. I highly recommend Maria Jose!
I am highly flexible as a teacher. I relate concepts to the passions and natural curiosities of my students in order for my students to grasp the concepts.
Ms Helen is blessing. My daughter is very excited about her tutoring session with Ms Helen. My daughter feels more confident about her school work due to Ms Helen providing her with the study skills she needs in her everyday studies. I recommend Ms Helen to any parent who's child is struggling in school.
Amanda is an amazing tutor in so many ways. She is able to express and share her extensive English background and inspire my daughter to express her own thoughts and ideas. Truly a gift. She is always punctual and prepared to review and assist with any task or concern.
Kendra was my personal tutor to help me prepare for the GMAT exam. She is brilliant at simplifying concepts, particularly math, and making them accessible for anyone to understand and recreate. She bridges gaps between, what I find, esoteric and abstract math concepts that are difficult to conceptualize into simple, real-world problems that can be easily solved. Could not recommend her enough!
We had an outstanding experience with Kate's tutoring services. My son studied with her in preparation for his TJ entrance exams and was thoroughly prepared for the testing format. (He got in by the way!) Kate focuses on building upon the student's knowledge and helping them to prepare for the testing taking itself. We've also gotten Kate's help with subject specific topics. Kate is very passionate about helping students, very responsive to the parents and a pleasure to work with. I highly recommend Kate's services to everyone. Her private tutoring services are very reasonably priced when compared to other similar testing services. Thank you Kate for all your support and for continuing to care about my son enough to follow up long after the tutoring sessions were over!
