At this point I do not know the outcome of the tutoring ... though I can tell you that I am very pleased with my daughters level of engagement with the process. She works with her tutor, Friday and Sunday evenings, she is enthusiastically involved with all sessions.
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.
Lisa is great. Lisa is all about learning the right way, positive reinforcement and truly caring about your child. I first reached out to Lisa for SSAT's but realized she made it much more than that. Lisa is a true educator about how to learn and what you as a parent can do to help. My daughter test scores improved in reading and reading comprehension (her weakness) and in math. Building confidence in herself and in reading is what Lisa does. Having a child who embraces reading now is what it is all about, life long results are the best results. Can't say enough.
We have had an excellent tutoring experience. The tutor really connected with my child and was able to focus on the help he really needed. It greatly increased his confidence going into the test.
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!
Sarah was a great help to our daughter who was under the gun to finish some essays for a high school application. In short order, Sarah helped her get "unblocked" and just write. Sarah's positive energy and approach helped our daughter to get out of her head. Sarah makes it fun; she gives feedback in a constructive and nurturing manner. I strongly recommend her services for your teen or tween that needs help writing for school assignments or applications.
I own two high end consignment shops. Our challenges, as most retail shops, is constantly getting in new merchandise & getting it out while at the same time making it look beautiful and 'Boutique' like. We are also small in square footage - so another challenge - is putting merchandise out again making it work, removing the clutter, turning over product. That's where Cathy walks in and transforms the store. As far as being creative; she amazes me with her ideas/visions & how well she actually brings them to life. As well as, how quickly she can do a 'touch up' and make the store look so new and refreshed! In my shops it is vital to make our merchandise look as beautiful and as high end as it is. & she comes through time and time again. After, a visit to the shop - it looks better 100% but sales both on-line and in-store are increased. Customers love it and look forward to our changes & comment positively each time. She has made an impact on my store both aesthetically pleasing as well as financially (sales). A huge win for us & our customers/consignors. I highly, highly recommend her, but hate to share her! You will be more than happy with the entire experience. ♥️ Pictures don't do her work justice.
I hired Jeanne because I needed a health and Wellness coach. She helped me pick out the food I needed to prepare healthy meals. She taught me a lot of things I didn’t know about nutrition and how to make a healthy meal plan without spending much money.
We are very satistfied that they did such an excellent job in a short period of time! Moreover, the price for the clean up was very fair....thank you so much! See you in the spring!!!
David has exceeded my expectations. I had two unprofessional experiences and was skeptical searching for a resume writer online. He is so nice, professional, prompt, and very knowledgeable.
I work with students dilligently. That means by keeping my students to a minimum, I can offer 24/7 service. Simply call or text for help between sessions.

I am an independent tutor. I, basically, work for myself. I spent many years tutoring for a company that cared more about the numbers of students that walked through the door, than helping the students achieve their goals,

I have a bachelor's degree in exercise science and a master's degree in mathematics. I am currently an adjunct math professor. I have one client currently. She is in the fifth grade and received an A- in math this past semester. This summer, we are going over problems geared toward the ISEE test.
Sam was an integral part of my law school application process. He worked with me to write a fantastic Personal Statement and several Letters of Interest. His critiques were insightful and spot-on, his turnaround time was fast, and his professionalism was unmatched. I highly recommend Sam and RSSR Editing for any editing/drafting/writing needs - especially for help with graduate school admissions. Thank you Sam!
