I will hire Oliver again in a minute and plan to as long as he tutors. He made the difference between my grandson failing 8th grade math and making it to 9th grade. Who could ask for more? Quality = 100%!

Mrs. Grasso has been fantastic to work with. My 8th grade son who Mrs. Grasso is tutoring in geometry says Mrs. Grasso is helpful, easy to talk to, and kind. As a parent I appreciate Mrs. Grasso’s kind nature and her ability to engage and teach. We live in another state so sessions are held via WizIQ which has been easy to use. We feel very lucky to have found Mrs. Grasso on Thumbtack!

My daughter was failing math. After just a few sessions shes not only getting A's but shes learning math at a higher grade level. He is really good at evaluating what it is the student is not understanding and presenting it to the student in a way that they do understand. Great tutor.

Kathie was professional, on time, wasn't a clock watcher and kept in touch through email with my daughter throughout the week if she had something to send her outside of the tutoring session. She kept my daughter engaged and I would use her again. I don't know the results yet of her SAT's but I will follow up.

Dr James is a great teacher! He is very passionate about what he does and is extremely knowledgeable. He was my undergraduate astrophysics professor and I assist him with stellar evolution research. I highly recommend him for teaching/tutoring as he keeps your attention, makes complex subjects awesome to learn, teaches neat French phrases and what not to say because it actually means something else, and is quick to respond to questions.

I was starting to feel overwhelmed with certain courses I was taking because I was falling behind as a result of personal issues. I realised I needed someone to help me get back on track, specifically for genomics and medical microbiology. Laura was the perfect fit. I hired her for a few sessions to bring me up to speed with the rest of the class. She made me feel right at ease, she printed out notes and gave me pop quizzes too! She is an absolutely amazing teacher, it's a shame that none of my professors can help me learn the way she did, and in such a short time too. I have no hesitance in recommending Laura to any Biology/Life Science/Medical students that are looking for an amazing tutor!

Lisa is one of the best writing tutors that I have ever had. She is smart, kind, and believes in every single one of her students. I first started working with Lisa to prep for the ACT. She always believed in me and encouraged me to keep working towards my goals. After getting through the ACT, Lisa helped me with my college application and supplemental essays. She helped me to get my vision into solidified and ideas. She has a hyper focus on making sure that her students voice is heard. Her respect and confidence in me is what made me believe in myself and my work.

I was looking for a tutor who could help me primarily prepare for the verbal and writing portions of the General GRE, and Annie was a very good fit. She had a variety of innovative and effective methods to help me learn vocabulary, and she helped me develop an approach for the writing sections. Annie was also flexible with scheduling which was helpful and started out each session by asking what I wanted to prioritize.
