My daughter has been working with Todd for about 2 years now. At first I was a little skeptical due to different cultures and backgrounds with our family, I did not know if my daughter would take to Tood, But she did immediately he was able to connect with her. Todd was very accommodating from the start. I was looking for a Math tutor that could definitely be very patient and get through to my introvert daughter. Todd was all I expected and more. Todd not only is patient with my daughter but he uses different tools and materials to assist in the tutoring. He also uses stories to help my daughter relate to real life circumstances. He even goes even further by showing special interest in her personally and her social activities and school. He is just so amazing his natural ability to reach her is remarkable. He has been so thoughtful to bring her special gifts that are associated to her special interest and he also brings her writing and math gifts as well...It is endless. Todd also communicates with me very well in making sure to involve me in the tutoring process by giving me a recap on what was learned and how she did and what she needs to work on. He has been very flexible with meeting our schedule needs and always communicates very effective prior to and after each session...It is just very rare to find a tutor that can be so good and consistent. The first year my daughter started working with Todd she went from falling behind in school to ending on the Principles Honors Roll. Carla Very Happy Parent I

You can't ask for a better tutor than the one we got. We ended up doing in-home tutoring and the tutor was very kind and courteous and knowledgeable.

Emily has been tutoring my daughter E for the last couple of months. E is a freshman, quite shy, and has been struggling a bit in her studies (mostly Algebra). We first met Emily and I found her to be very professional and yet still very friendly. She supplied me with all her background information - education, experience, references and even a background screening from the Family Care Safety Registry. Emily has helped E with organization and and with her knowledge of Algebra, she has also helped with other homework when needed. Emily pushes E to ask questions and gives her to do lists, she is very encouraging and positive. She relates very well with my daughter and I highly recommend her.

Our tutoring rates range from $35.00-$45.00 per hour, depending on the number of hours you signed up for. What you will get are the following: * Free Consultation -- This free consultation allows me to identify your student's specific strengths and weaknesses in order to pair you with the right tutor. * In-Home Tutor -- Your tutor will come to your house or any other location of your choice such as a bookstore or library and work with your student one-on-one with a customized tutoring plan that targets your student's specific academic needs. * Our Three-Step Approach -- Our three-step approach are as follows: Step 1: Up to Speed -- The tutor gets the student up to speed by reviewing old concepts that they might have missed which ensures that their fundamentals are strong. Step 2: One Step Ahead -- The tutor covers topics and concepts with the student before it is done in class. This is a proven strategy in improving academic confidence. Step 3: Reinforcement and Organization -- The tutor will reinforce key concepts that the student might have missed to ensure that the student is never behind. The tutor will also help with organization, study skills and note-taking strategies. * Background-Checked and Verified Tutor -- All of our tutors undergo a background check and have their transcripts verified.

This simply means that we don't charge you if you're not satisfied with your tutoring session. * Reporting -- We provide you with a detailed report at the end of each tutoring session which includes what your tutors accomplished during their tutoring session, the student's strengths and weaknesses and what they plan to accomplish in their next tutoring session. This report allows both the tutor and I to be accountable to you. * Technology -- Direct access to our award-winning web platform allows you to review your tutor's profile, qualifications and availability. You can also book sessions, pay for sessions, track session reports and communicate with me and your tutor at any time. The website also generates receipts for tax-deduction purposes. * Connecting with Teacher -- If it is okay with you, your tutor will contact your student's teacher to get a more detailed understanding of what the student is struggling with and also make sure that they are both on the same page in tackling the problem.

About

I am passionate about teaching so try to do so in a manner that keeps the student engaged. I do not strive to simply teach the student, I strive to help the student understand the material well enough to have the ability to teach someone else. I do this by making them feel as comfortable as possible to ask any questions needed for better understanding.

About

Growing up, I wanted to give my brother (who has a disability) a better future by teaching him math and reading skills outside of school. I have been teaching my brother math and reading skills that he lacked for 5 years now and have improved his grades greatly. I have such great passion in teaching for it comes naturally to me. I would love to improve your child's grades, confidence, and interest in math and English!
