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 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.
Ryan has been great in helping our son prepare for the PSAT/SAT. Very professional.
Michael provided SAT tutoring for my son. He provided excellent structure, feedback, and tools for mastering the exam. My son enjoyed working with him very much and achieved excellent scores. I recommend Michael without reservation.
John came on time and was a great help to my daughter, helping her with the math section of the SAT. He has also told her to contact him with any subsequent questions. I would recommend him to anyone.
Nafisat Sanni " We have been greatly pleased with Damie tutoring our 11th grade son in maths. As concerned parents for the overall progress of our child at learning ,Damie was recommended by a reliable test prep service to help with his factorizing and graphing equations problem. Damie's perceptive skill in working through a student's area of strength in order to improve a weakness can't be overemphasized. We saw great improvement in our son's test scores in his maths class. We highly recommend Damie as a tutor for any level of math"
Kathie was professional, on time, wasn't a clock watcher and kept in touch through email with my daughter throughout the week if she had something to send her outside of the tutoring session. She kept my daughter engaged and I would use her again. I don't know the results yet of her SAT's but I will follow up.
I had Kristen as my tutor for two years. She is very reliable, organized, and most importantly, patient. If I struggled with a certain subject or assignment, she knew how to break the subject matter down into a way that was easy for me to understand. Every time I met with her, she always had a smile on her face and was excited to see me. As a student, it is a great feeling to go into a tutoring session feeling comfortable and welcomed. I would definitley recommend Kristen as a tutor!
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 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.
Ivan has successfully tutored all three of my children (ages 6-15) in all areas of mathematics. He can work with different learning styles.
Great help with my sat prep. Very knowledgeable and will see results.
Clare has been my math tutor for a year. She has given me the confidence to not be afraid that I will fail at my tests and also help me understand my homework. Plus we have fun! She gives me other web sites that I use to practice math. I like that we can Skype because she can answer my calls whenever I need her help.
My daughter was matched quickly with a terrific totor and her confidence is way up in time for school!!

I am meticulous as an editor, paying close attention to nit-picky details as well as the overall writing style, organization, clarity, and everything that makes a piece of writing successful. As a tutor, I have years of training (Ed.M. from Harvard Graduate School of Education) and experience. I am mature but lively, with a sense of humor, firmness as well as compassion for my students, and my students succeed!
I offer math tutoring for high school and junior high students. I do SAT and ACT prep. I also tutor pre-algebra, Algebra I and II, geometry, trigonometry, pre-calculus, calculus, statistics, SAT, ACT, and physics. Here's a word from a student: "Thank you! I finished this year with an A in math and I literally can't believe it. This was the best I've done in all of high school. I really appreciate all the help you've given me over the last 3 years."
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
