It has been a pleasure to work with Alejandro and Thumbtack. I've always found learning languages extremely challenging, but Alejandro has made it enjoyable and I am moving along quickly (I had zero previous Spanish experience). Alejandro has a lesson plan, but is happy to add the vocabulary you are interested in learning. In addition to the one on one tutor sessions, he organizes events for his students to practice speaking Spanish with one another.
Kathy was a great tutor who helped me tremendously. If I didn't understand something she would take the time to explain it in a different way. She went above and beyond to make sure I understood everything she was teaching me. She also taught me many tricks on how to approach the SAT and what to expect from the test. Many of the tips and tricks she gave me I had no idea about. Kathy was also very easy to talk to and I always felt comfortable during our sessions. Don't think twice about hiring Kathy, she's the best!
Wow! You will not go wrong with Arbor Tutors.
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%!
Working with Patrick from Bootstrap Tutors was an exceptional experience. Patrick was professional, intelligent, reliable and punctual, and taught and explained the material clearly. It was a pleasure working with Patrick and Bootstrap Tutors.
I was a student at The Pennsylvania State University and decided to take Calculus III and Vector Analysis over the summer at a local college. I met with Michelle each week to go over the material I learned, complete homework assignments and study for upcoming exams. It was a very challenging class but Michelle was very helpful in explaining the topics and I ended up receiving at B+ in the class. I would highly recommend her as a math tutor.
My daughter needed 80 more points on her SAT to receive her Athletic Scholarship for College. Hiring Lisa was the best thing I could have done. She understood exactly what my daughter needed to do and planned out a strategy to get it done. Lisa is extremely knowledgeable, broke everything down to easy steps and helped my daughter find the confidence she needed to succeed. Lisa was also able to help me get my daughter's 504 Plan in place for College. My daughter got the points she needed and signed her National Letter of Intent. Words cannot express how fabulous Lisa is and how important she has become to my family. I will be forever grateful to her and I would highly recommend her to anyone that is looking for a tutor.
Very good tutor. I used Michael for my 9th grade son who needed help with AP Physics and for my 7th grade daughter you needed help with Algebraic word problems. Both kids felt extremely comfortable working with Michael. Michael is extsremely organized, has an excellent command of the subject matter and goes that extra mile for the children he tutors. Both kids felt more comfortable with the material after working with Michael.
Samantha is tutoring my daughter in high school honors French. I like that she tailors her lessons to her ability, learning style and current school lessons. She is also warm and engaging. This has made such a comfortable learning environment. Samantha has been the right choice for us, but I can see her working very well with any age person who wants to to learn or brush up on their French.
Diane Brown is an extraordinary human being and an outstanding Spanish teacher. Her primary concern is what works best for the individual student and she is prepared to use multiple modalities recognizing the students’ visual, auditory and kinesthetic learning strengths. Spanish is learned as a living spoken and written language influenced by rich cultures. As her colleague and team leader, I was impressed by her enthusiasm, commitment to her students and her work ethic. As the parent three students, I was delighted by the depth and breadth their Spanish knowledge after just two years of Middle School Spanish.
Elisha is a very qualified tutor. She not only knew the subject material well, she was very patient and made sure I understood everything well. She helped me prepare for my SAT. Before I sought tutoring, my math score was 440 and after studying with Elisha, my math score went up to 690. I can’t recommend her enough.
I have had Tutors for a few different languages (Japanese & Portugues) so I have experience in working with people of all skill levels trying to teach me a foreign language; that said, Candi is BY FAR the best tutor I've had the pleasure of working with. What makes Candi fit with me is her extreme flexibility. My job sends me on the road at a moments notice and each time I've had to change the schedule Candi has been able to happily accommodate me. A big part of Candi's approach is her positivity, which keeps me smiling and always looking forward to my class. When it comes to her approach to teaching as a tutor, Candi is professional, kind, and extremely knowledgeable. Tutoring an adult comes with specific challenges, dedication being the most destructive, but Candi's style inspires one to keep with the program and her abilities allow you to have successes on a weekly or bi-weekly basis further inspiring you to move forward. As you can probably tell I am very fond of and thankful for Candi, she's an amazing Teacher and the main reason why I'll be touring Spain next year with a great grasp of the local language. Definitely sign up for her program and you'll be speaking Spanish in no time!
Ihab brings a high level of energy and enthusiasm to his work and my daughter really responded well to that.
Rebecca Oscar: “Trevor is a very capable tutor who extended his expertise to my children in an organized and thoughtful fashion. The materials he uses to teach writing are strong and established classical methods and his patience and kindness creates a valuable learning environment. Trevor is an approachable educator who is supportive and offers feedback to both parent and child. I highly recommend Trevor for anyone looking to strengthen their child's academic performance."
Ivan has successfully tutored all three of my children (ages 6-15) in all areas of mathematics. He can work with different learning styles.
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'.
Jim tutored my daughters for a very important math test for over 2 hours today. He is very smart, funny, and easy going which made them both feel less nervous to begin with. Also, he gave them very important pointers for the test and encouraged them that they will do well. I highly recommend him to everyone
Kendra is a great tutor. My son enjoys working with her.
Marina has been working with my son on a regular basis to strengthen gaps in his knowledge. She is always warm, patient, understanding and encouraging. She quickly discovered and has helped fill the gaps in my son's knowledge base and after just one session he brought his grade up on a midterm exam from an average C- to a high B. My son is developing study skills and good habits of learning that he has never had since working with Marina and the combination of all of the above is greatly increasing his confidence. Marina is Innovative and flexible and tutors my son online. She provides focused support through Skype sessions, email, and text messages and coaches students to use Khan Academy and other resources effectively. In short, Marina is a dream tutor and my son has decided to follow his long standing dream of studying computer science which he had given up when he began to struggle in math. Marina is a life changer!!!! Can't say enough good things about her.

As I already describe it, I want to make the teaching easy and understandable to everyone whatever you had a few lessons before or you are a freshman. I am going to start with you; when you get to a certain level, you might be able to continue with me or without. This is very important when you learn it the right way: alphabet (vowels and consonant), syllabus, phrases, lecture courante (text), dictation, and grammatical analysis, preposition, pronouns, subject, verbs, complements, vocabulary, present tense, past tense, preterit, past perfect, the unconditional future, gerund, past participle, its accord with the direct complement, exclamative pronouns, interrogative pronouns, circumstancial complement (where, when, how, and why), translation of who, which, whom, whose, demonstrative adjectives: ce, ces, cet, cette and possessive adjectives: son, sa ses, ton, ta tes, le la, les, leurs; the possessive case, logical analysis, syntax, different parts of a sentence, of a speech, elocution, description, narration, redaction, etc.
