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

Cathan is an amazing teacher and individual. She has the remarkable gift of being able to teach both the beginner and the highly advanced student. Between our three children and involvement in the music world, we have had exposure to many piano teachers. Cathan is singular in her ability to teach the basics of music and playing piano AND musical expression, beautifully interpreting a piece. She is also very good at selecting just the right music that pushes a student forward at the right pace. We came to Cathan after a negative experience with highly-acclaimed piano teacher in the area who just didn't give proper attention to our son. After four years, he simply wasn't progressing, and it didn't seem like it was his fault. We gave him the choice to quit piano or to take lessons from another teacher. To our surprise, he wanted to try another teacher. Once we switched to Cathan, we rapidly saw significant improvement in his playing. Now it is several years later, and even though our son is a young man on the brink of adulthood, he still chooses to take piano from Cathan and practices regularly without ever being prodded. It is a joy to have this music fill our house. We highly recommend Ms. Kabrelian's studio to anyone considering music lessons. It has been a life-changer for us.
One of the best teachers I have had! She single-handedly inspired me to pursue business in college. She is patient, knowledgeable, and really knows her stuff! Highly recommend for writing and math. She helped me improve my business writing, as well as better understand business-related math (budgeting, expense reports, accounting, etc).
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.

I am a former writing tutor and technical writer. As a tutor, I helped college composition students brainstorm and organize their ideas. As a technical writer, I was charged with creating and editing software documentation and installation text, ensuring a professional tone, consistent formatting, and perfect grammar. I have recently started helping friends with resumes and have found that I have a knack for making people look their best on paper. I can help you brainstorm to identify ways that a seemingly unrelated past job has helped qualify you for the job you are seeking.
I give important techniques to understand reading and accentuate writing and also improve test scores. For instance, explicit strategies such as R.A.C.E. and B.L.I.N.G. help students achieve more.
