At this point I do not know the outcome of the tutoring ... though I can tell you that I am very pleased with my daughters level of engagement with the process. She works with her tutor, Friday and Sunday evenings, she is enthusiastically involved with all sessions.
We have had an excellent tutoring experience. The tutor really connected with my child and was able to focus on the help he really needed. It greatly increased his confidence going into the test.
Michael is very professional and punctual in returning work. I've hired him for three different writing projects, each requiring a different and unique tone, and he was able to adapt his writing style to fit each. His research skills have also proved to be top notch. I highly recommend him.
My son is a 15 year old in Honors Algebra II at Worcester Academy. He never had much trouble with math in the past, but this class was challenging him and his grades were slipping. Oliver really helped him to fill in the missing parts of his understanding and to feel more confident. My son really liked Oliver's approach and enjoyed his tutoring sessions, and his grades improved significantly. Oliver is very easy to work with as a parent-- he is responsive to calls and messages, understanding about schedule changes, and is very generous with his time-- we scheduled for an hour, but Oliver often stayed longer when he was really engaged in his teaching. I would definitely hire Oliver again for my kids.
Kendra is a great tutor. My son enjoys working with her.
Both my children had Marya as their preK teacher and they absolutely thrived academically and social-emotionally under her care and teaching. Through a whole child, inquiry based and thematic approach, Marya was able to ignite my children's love for learning, particularly in reading and writing. My children are early readers and writers thanks to Marya's creativity and sensitivity in guiding them to notice patterns and come to their own understanding about the world that they live in. Because of Marya, they take pride in their writing and have a very positive view of reading as a way to learn and as a skill they gain the more they do. My children also loved Marya's systematic and multi-sensory approach to practice and acquire decoding, sounding out, and spelling skills in an intimate and personalized way. She understands and respects each child's temperament and guides them with purposeful differentiation according to each learner's needs. I highly recommend Marya and can't say enough good things about her as a teacher, tutor, and mentor. Yen, mother of 2 avid, enthusiastic readers who are reading above their age level thanks to Marya, and a toddler who can't read but loves books thanks to his siblings' great example.
Mrs. M worked with our school for several months as a substitute literacy teacher. She is excellent: Gets along well with students, very knowledgeable about literacy supports and interventions, conscientious and detail oriented. Highly recommend her!
My daughter was matched quickly with a terrific totor and her confidence is way up in time for school!!
Kathie was wonderful with my daughter. We only had a short time to work together before my daughter had to take her ACT and because of Kathie my daughter felt prepared. Will absolutely use her again for my other daughter!
José Ruben Vazquez is the most ambitious and passionate person I’ve ever met. He helped me develop some technical filming and editing skills. He is so professional and creative. He offered me great opportunities to meet and film talented artists in Boston! I enjoyed working with him!!
I would highly recommend Cathy. This was my 1st time using an event planner and she has now spoiled me. I will never plan these type of events on my own again, and will only use her! My daughter was beyond thrilled with how she put together her Sweet 16, and my daughter is extremely hard to please. She delivered on everything we discussed and more. People from the venue where we held this party were peaking their heads in to admire the work she did setting up. And one of my daughter's friend's mother said my daughter has now set the bar high for a party. Thank you, thank you , thank you Cathy!
I hired Jeanne because I needed a health and Wellness coach. She helped me pick out the food I needed to prepare healthy meals. She taught me a lot of things I didn’t know about nutrition and how to make a healthy meal plan without spending much money.
I work with students dilligently. That means by keeping my students to a minimum, I can offer 24/7 service. Simply call or text for help between sessions.
David has exceeded my expectations. I had two unprofessional experiences and was skeptical searching for a resume writer online. He is so nice, professional, prompt, and very knowledgeable.
