Ryan has been great in helping our son prepare for the PSAT/SAT. Very professional.
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.
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.
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 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.
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.
We had done a lot of shopping around for an SAT tutor and The Premier Tutors (Talha Bhatty) has proven to be the right choice for our daughter. It was obvious right away that Talha has a commanding knowledge of subject matter and an informal way of teaching that put our daughter right at ease. She found him to be very effective in helping her to "get" math. He even showed her a new (to her) method that really simplified factoring for her. We found his familiarity with the test and test taking strategies very helpful. Our daughter ended up with an excellent SAT score as a result of his help. We would recommend Talha to anybody!
For the past year, I have worked with Ms. Lisa Kay on multiple subjects: studying for the SAT/ACT, and working on my college application essays. With her variety of tricks and strategies, I have developed skills to do well on these tests. Although I struggled with grasping certain subjects in the beginning, Lisa has been very patient and helped me understand why I got questions wrong versus how many questions I do. Sometimes, when I was frustrated with the practice test I took, she would always reply to my emails and calm me down, keeping me motivated and thinking more positively. Over the course of this year, she has helped build up my self esteem/confidence for test taking, and now I feel much more comfortable with the SAT/ACT. She is very rational and realistic: she always speaks the truth and will make sure that her students improve one way or another. Although her tutoring sessions are only once a week for about an hour each, she can be easily contacted via Skype, email, text, phone call, etc. I know for sure that whenever I have questions, she will always be there to help, and without her, I have no idea where I would be right now in the college process.
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'.
Great help with my sat prep. Very knowledgeable and will see results.
My name is Irene. Lena Lipatova tutored my two children. Lena is an excellent tutor and a great teacher. At the first session she gave a test to my kids to evaluate their knowledge. Based on the result of the test Lena planned her sessions to help them prepare for the SAT. She was very thorough in covering the subjects and answering questions. Lena was very patient providing explanations till my kids completely understood what they needed to do in order to improve their SAT scores. Lena gave my kids a lot of valuable tips. The result is: both of my kids significantly improved their SAT scores and eventually were accepted in good colleges, Babson College and University of New Hampshire. I would highly recommend Lena Lipatova as an excellent tutor.
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.
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.
Anne is an outstanding math tutor - she is patient, knowledgeable and customizes her strategies to fit the student. She tutored both my children, who had distinctly different math skills, superbly. They both aced their math classes and all math standardized testing!
I had Christina for tutoring for writing and math. She is very well qualified, thorough, knowledgable and funny. She is great to work with! I highly recommend her!
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 believe that what makes my tutoring, college application assistance, and career development services stand out is my ability to get to know my clients and their backgrounds, interests, and needs for assistance very quickly and very well. This ability of mine to zero in on a client and their particular educational or career situation and needs makes it possible for me to quickly revise a client's resume, find and suggest terrific options for them, whether that be the list of colleges that I believe they should consider applying to or the employers to which I recommend that they send their resume in search of their next job. In addition, I not only have strong interpersonal skills and can usually immediately connect with a client, but I am a good listener with excellent follow-up skills and a strong network of contacts that I readily call upon on behalf of my clients. I also was an A+ student during my entire K-12 education, & was Valedictorian of the Class of 1985 of Sacred Heart H.S. in Kingston, MA. I hold a Bachelor of Arts in Government from Cornell University & a Master of Education degree from the Harvard University Graduate School of Education. In short, I can help both your chlld w/ their specific academic issues and/or their overall study skills so that they not only do better in school, but graduate and go onto college successfully, AND yourself with regard to updating your resume & assisting you with developing an effective strategy for job search or career change.

I will tutor students in math subjects, from arithmetic through calculus, including preparation for SAT tests.

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
