Thumbtack provides a sophisticated, efficient, and effective framework for tutoring. For us, this was a much better option than the large impersonal prep companies that are not flexible about crafting approaches for different kinds of students. I would recommend Bootstrap very highly and will continue to use them throughout the coming months. A great discovery!

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.

I pretty much owe my A in calculus and my 2150 SAT score to Oliver. He was able to explain math in a way that not only made a lot of sense to me, but enabled me to see connections and a bigger picture than I did before. The class became so much easier. Also, he was a huge help with the reading section of the SAT, and a really nice guy!

Lisa was a lifesaver for me. After not doing well my first attempt, she tutored me for the verbal and writing portions of the SAT's. After her help my scores were exceptionally better. She also helped me with my college essay, which I strongly believe played a huge role in getting accepted into my top Universities. Due to her assistance I am now in college excelling in writing. The skills she has taught me have lasted long past the SAT's.

Lisa has helped me immensely with my SAT testing, as well as my writing skills. I have seen a great improvement in my writing with the help of Lisa. Her insightful guidance and amazing patience helped me increase my SAT scores and assisted me throughout the college application process.

I’ve taken my SATs a couple of times and although I am not a bad student, I just felt that I could have done better, I knew it inside, but just could not find where it was. I got the Getting Into The Ivys tutoring program and worked with a Chelsea tutor. What I really like about my tutor is that she’s a qualified teacher and is professional and knows how to actually teach concepts properly. I really did not want to take any chances. Going to university is very important to me and my family. Susan my tutor developed a special study plan just for me, which helped me focus on my key weaknesses, without feeling de-motivated, in-fact I was so enthused by her, I actually looked forward to all my sessions. She is a brilliant tutor and I am so very grateful. I was able to increase my composite core by 100. I am very pleased.

I have always had a confidence issue when I get into a testing environment, anxiety is a major problem for me. Due to my particular circumstances, I was advised by Chelsea that I could apply for additional testing time from the ACT organization. Thankfully, I got 50% more time to take the test. I would not even have known that this was possible if Chelsea had not given me this information and relevant advice. I have to say that after spending tutoring time with my Chelsea tutor, my expectations were more than satisfied, not only did I do well in my ACT’s, I was able to achieve a 31 score, which I never thought I would be able to do.

John has tremendous knowledge and experience teaching algebra. His passion is remarkable and infectious. He has a structured approach to breaking down all of the concepts and teaching them one-by-one. In 5 meetings he has covered nearly a whole year of course work. His follow-up after meetings is fantastic and he always arrives on time, enthusiastic to get started. My son and I couldn't be happier!

Barry has been tutoring my 10-year old daughter in math over the summer and continuing into the school year. He is very patient and works at making learning fun while working through math problems. My daughter's math skills have definitely improved and she is now able to keep up with the rest of her math class. I highly recommend Barry Polsky as a math tutor.

I attribute Chyten for raising my daughters grades from Bs and Cs to mostly As. The confidence she gained from their personal, compassionate, tutoring helped her in all her subjects - not just the ones for which we had her tutored. And, Jim himself, is very approachable and always ready to discuss your options and come up with the best approach for your particular child. I am amazed at how well he knows my child and her specific needs and accomplishments.

My experience with Jim was very positive. He was very aware of my daughters needs and sensitive in providing a class schedule that was practicable for my daughter and his instructors. He is very flexible and is an amazing scheduler. I cannot argue the results. We are proud of our daughter and very thankful to Jim and his team of very capable instructors.

I was so impressed by how professional Dr. Fikar is! He has more than enough experience to tackle any problem that could possibly arise during the LSAT preparation time. Would definitely recommend him to anyone who is seeking for some guidance on how to best prepare the LSAT. He has used his experience and knowledge to help me best use my time during my LSAT study and he always knows where my problem lies and is able to give me advice. Most importantly, Dr. Fikar he himself is a great role model that by merely talking to him it would already be very helpful!

We hired Micheline after my daughter took her initial SAT and ACT test as we felt she could do better with the input of an expert. After two months of consistent tutoring, my daughter again took the tests and her scores improved dramatically. She liked Micheline, and we were happy with her professionalism. Micheline is also very patient. When my son needed help with Spanish, we called Micheline. My son enjoyed & looked forward to his lessons, learned to love Spanish, and made a lot of progress. We would highly recommend her!

Micheline is great! She worked with my daughter for several months and the results are outstanding. My daughter is mastering her subjects and has a new level of confidence that will serve her well in the future. My child enjoyed her sessions and the results speak volumes about what she is capable of. Micheline did not sugar coat the work involved or expected results, but encouraged my daughter to reach her maximum potential and gave her confidence that she could be a high achiever.

I've been out of college for nearly ten years, out of basic math/algebra for...lets just say...longer than that. With my recent decision to go back to school to become an RN, I had to take a math placement test. This worried me because I am notoriously bad at math, and had to take several remedial courses my first time around in college. This time, I was determined to avoid that, I did not want to spend extra time or money on math classes that I wouldn't enjoy! I went from knowing nothing to knowing everything I would need to test into the math requirement for my nursing program, and I couldn't have done it without Erika! (Seriously, every damn question on that test I thought to myself, THANK GOD FOR ERIKA). I had three valuable tutoring sessions with her. She is calm, easy-going, and fun to talk to (someone who I have fun talking about math with, what?!). At the same time she is concise, to the point, and encourages you to solve problems until she can tell that you are really "getting it." If I need further tutoring in math or science during my program, I have every intention of reaching out to Erika, and I would recommend her to anyone!
