We had our daughter meet the tutor at the local library four times a week after school for six weeks. She went from a low C to a solid A. What more can we ask for?
Very patient guy. WANTS to see you succeed! Helped me achieve the score I needed on my GRE to get into graduate school!
The exam was extremely hard! But I got through it just fine after the three lessons we did before the exam. thanks for getting me through the last two weeks of geometry! It helped my grade improve a whole letter grade!! :) I was able to pass the class after this. I can go into junior year geometry free! 🙌🏼😊
Michael did a great job tutoring my son with his high school calculus class. My son said that Michael was the best math tutor he'd ever had.
I recently ran across a review about Quantum Prep and felt like I just had to share my tutoring story as well. I graduated from Lexington High School in Lexington Massachusetts. Lexington High School is a huge school. When I say huge, I mean I graduated with five hundred and eleven classmates. I was always proud to go to Lexington High, we were rated number 19 in 2014 by Newsweek in their Americas Top Public Schools. Luckily my class sizes were always small and it was not too hard to get help from the teacher. The first semester of my junior year I was taking five classes. I was looking into pre-med, so I took a lot of hard science classes that gave me at least two hours of homework a night. I also worked on the weekends, swam competitively, played in the jazz band and was active in my religious youth group. That year I was taking AP Chemistry as a challenge and knew I was going to have a tough time with it. My teacher, Mrs. Compton, was great! She explained everything really well and broke it down for the class. I just really couldnt get everything in my notebook and in my head with enough time to move on to the next topic, so Id lose information here and there, making it really hard to answer test questions. I got the first F in my entire academic career on the first quiz. Im one of those people who expect a lot from themselves, and I expected As. I felt really bad about myself for the first two quizzes because I wasnt coming even close to what I knew I could do. In addition, because I was spending so much time working on AP Chemistry, my other classes were suffering. And as a prospective pre-med student, I was afraid that because I challenged myself I wasnt going to get into the colleges I wanted. That's when I called Quantum Prep for help. As soon as I had the first tutoring session I felt a little more reassured. We went over my quizzes and homework assignments and my tutor quickly picked up what I was missing and how to keep me focused. I felt much more confident walking into class every day. My tutor figured out how I best learn and we started laughing and making jokes as we did stereochemistry. Yes, he figured out within one session that I learn better with music playing in the background and even knew why! The real difference was that he didnt just teach me material, he taught me how to learn for myself. It was a game-changer in how I approached school and learning in general. So while he was teaching me one class, I was using the learning techniques he taught me to improve my grades in all of my classes. He even patiently sat through temper tantrums and low points. So what happened after I called Quantum Prep? The next quiz I took, I got thirty points higher than the last. The first exam; I got a B+. I went on to graduate in a science heavy degree, and got into my first choice for college and graduated with a degree in Neuropsychology. I highly suggest using Quantum Prep for any kind of tutoring. I had such a wonderful experience and have used the lessons I learned from him in so many different aspects of my life, from studying at the university to job experiences. Thank you Quantum Prep!
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!
Kathryn's skills are impeccable. She is very detail orientated and has a real talent in writing. She is able to review and edit many different documents and is able to adjust them perfectly. She has a real knack for wording things professionally and picking up on small things they need to changed or twerked. She reviewed several of my papers during my college career and gave me great advice in my writing technique. I have been able to use the skills she taught me in my professional and personal life on a daily basis. I would highly recommend Kathryn for any and all of your editing needs.
I contacted Sara on craigslist while searching for someone who could help me with editing my graduate school application essays. The application was due about 3 days after I initially made contact with Sara. In any case, I could not finish my drafts by the time I told her I would due to a family emergency. I was frazzled and discombobulated. About 6 hours before it was due, she edited and proofread 2 of my essays. She paid keen attention to detail and stayed up late in the evening to make sure I could get these in on time. The finished product was flawless. She goes above and beyond for her clients!
I can describe Chris in one word: PASSION. He is passionate about teaching and all passion he has is turned into energy always giving 100%. He's the best teacher I ever had. With him I feel I'm really learning and improving my English skills. His classes are alternatives and especially original: with Chris is impossible to be bored! He creates his lessons really thinking to his students. He is one of the only teachers who hasn't forgotten how it was to be a student. In my opinion that's amazing! What I like most is that every class is active, dynamic and unique. Chris for me isn't just an English teacher, he's a life coach: he taught to me to face life in a different way, has taught me that we mustn't give up, because the beauty of life is its "non-perfection". Now I know there is always something to be proud of and that something brings us to achieve the big goals. I feel very lucky to have met Chris, he's a great teacher and a great person. There should be more people/teachers like him.
I have received help with multiple writing assignments in school, ACT tutoring, and supplement and college essay help. I do not know what I would do without Lisa! She has helped me go from a B english student to an A student. She has also done a great job working with me on my supplements and college essay. My english teacher and college counselor loved them! For my ACT scores, she helped me get a 33 on my first ACT in the reading section and helped me go from a 24 to a 35 in the english section.
Jimmy is a fantastic tutor. He informed himself about the Australian Curriculum and was prepared for my year 5 and year 11 kids from the first day on. He explained the tasks thoroughly and always had examples referencing to music. This created an easy tool for my musician son to understand math and enjoy the teaching. Thanks to Jimmy both kids are up-to-date with their math school work after 8 weeks out of school. Jimmy is kind but also focused on the outcome. Great experience
The lessons with Charbel have been outstanding. From day one, my son has told me that he is very helpful and his service is fruitful. I am extremely pleased with the progress my son is making this semester, not only are his grades reaching all time highs, his confidence has improved as well. Best decision we made. Thank you so much Charbel!
The first thing that my son said after he finished his first class was wanting to here again tomorrow. That means a lot to me. Thanks Diane!!
Jan educated herself on uniqueness of our school district program prier to first lesson. She connected with both kids during first lesson. Both boys happily share what they learned after every lesson and can not wait for her to come back for next one
Anthony was my private in-home SAT tutor while I attended Westwood High School. He was an enormous help not only preparing me for my testing, but helping me write my college essay. He even helped me select the school that was the best fit for me! Great experience all around, two thumbs up!
My daughter exceeded her SAT goal and increased her score by 300 points working with Heather. After completing assigned work, Heather would review and provide instruction on any concepts/definitions/problems that were missed. The process that Heather utilizes provides practice and instills confidence, both of which were instrumental in my daughter's success. For one session, Heather tutored at my home. In passing, I witnessed her mastery of the material and wit. That's a nice combination when working with high school students.
I am an older student, finishing my Bachelor's degree later in life, after working many years as a Registered Nurse. As a student of Professor Miller's for two semesters in college, I found that learning Spanish in her classes was a delightful experience. Through her good-natured instruction, I not only learned much of the language, but learned about Spanish culture and norms of everyday life, as well. Although the course was demanding, because of her upbeat and positive attitude learning was fun. As we have kept in touch via e-mail since 2010, I can tell you that she is a nice woman who enjoys teaching and helping people of all ages. She would be an asset in creating a supportive and friendly atmosphere for learning Spanish, in nearly any setting.
Anna Pacheco is one of the most nice, kindhearted, hardworking tutors I have ever had. She boosted my standardized and school test scores and made learning fun at the same time.
My son liked chess before lessons, and absolutely loves chess after only two lessons. He looks forward to his class all week! And his skills have tremendously improved. I couldn't be more satisfied.
Learn French without stopping fun, and learning French food can be an opportunity to learn a new language.
