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 did the online GMAT tutoring with Steve. I mostly needed help with Quant but a little Verbal as well. I went from 520 to 730 with a lot of hard work. Fantastic tutoring.
My daughter is working with a very versatile tutor, who also takes the time to impart advice on daily life skills.
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 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!
I have known Angela for six years and she is kind to her students and very patient. She is very knowledgeable about the piano and her students really enjoy her lessons. She works very hard to make sure that her students continue growing and learn to love the piano. i have enjoyed each lesson with her.
Kristen is a very intelligent person who is awesome at what she does. She tutored me for the better part of two years in both Algebra II and Pre-Calc/Trig. Kristen is punctual, organized and really knows her stuff! Very open and friendly, I felt comfortable with her from day one. If you have trouble understanding something right away, she goes over it again in a different way until you do. I would recommend her for tutoring over any other tutor I have worked with!
We contacted Michael to help our 15 year old son in Biology. Michael has been extremely helpful. He is very professional, arrives on time, is very friendly and polite, and most importantly is very good at tutoring. My son's Biology grade began going up after the first tutoring session, and continues to rise. My son likes Michael, and feels he would be in danger of failing without his help. Michael is also willing to help Jack with study tips and help getting organized. I would highly recommend Michael to anyone needing tutoring help. He is very smart, patient, professional, and a very nice person.
Linda has tutored two of my sons over the last five years. My older son was able to improve his SAT scores as well as perfect his college application essay. He got into his first college choice. My younger son had problems expressing himself in writing and started working with Linda in 8th grade. Later he studied with Linda for ACT and got into his first college choice. Overall I was impressed with Linda's professionalism, great energy and great rapport with kids. They loved studying with her. In addition I could always rely on Linda being up to date on latest changes in SAT/ACT tests, which was tremendously helpful last year. We all feel very fortunate to have Linda as our ' Language Coach'.
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.
Jared is reliable, reasonable and an excellent tutor. I hired him to tutor SAT and ACT students at the last minute and he was willing to dive right in. He helped the students increase the their scores substantially and they enjoyed their lessons with him. If you want a knowledgeable, energetic and friendly tutor, choose Jared.

I am going to be attending Cornell University in the fall on the honors astrophysics and mathematics tracks. I have a 4.0 GPA for all of high school, a 2370/2400 on the SAT, and am passionate about teaching. I could travel to a client or tutor in my own house. I have tutored 5 students before that include the following: * 8th grade general tutoring * 10th grade general tutoring * 12th grade math tutor * 11th grade physics tutor * 12th grade SAT tutor
I have no idea what other tutors do --- I know, from feedback from students and parents, that I do an excellent job --- first, I know my subject matter (math, physics) --- second, I like helping people --- third, I am very patient --- fourth, I ask leading questions of the student, so as to guide that student into discovering for himself/herself, as much as possible, what is involved in understanding, and then solving, the problem at hand
