Julissa tutored my son in Math for part of his junior year of high school. There was a definite improvement in his grades. But Julissa did more than tutor him, she gave him study methods and relaxation methods for his test anxiety. She also discussed with him his plans for the future and gave advice on what he needed to do to achieve his goals. The location at the library in Parkville was perfect as a safe public place, but still afforded quiet working accommodations. I highly recommend Julissa as a tutor!
Jennifer was extremely creative in getting all my experience, education, and skills on a great looking resume. It was quick and painless. She was great.
I could not seem to score well on the ACT. I ended up with Arbor Tutors and had a tutor who met me every week for 8 weeks and when I took the test and got an excellent score (33). Worth every cent.
Michael did an excellent job of evaluating my daughter's needs and referred us to good tutors, including himself. My daughter is receiving the help she so needs.
Mr. Mougy Ahmed has done wonders as a math tutor for our sophomore son! He has a very agreeable, non-threatening tutoring style, and our son enjoyed working with him right away. Our son was getting D's and C's in Algebra II , even with the assistance of a previous math tutor. Mougy came to our house and immediately recognized where our son was misunderstanding foundational concepts in Algebra II, and worked with him to build up that knowledge base and apply those skills correctly. He has been highly responsive in setting up tutoring sessions, sending additional lessons/exercises via email, and even holding extra sessions in advance of math tests/quizzes. As a direct result of Mougy's tutoring, our son earned a B+ and an A on his last two math tests. We highly recommend him to any student or parent who is searching for tutoring assistance.
Alex from Equity Tutors is great. He explains math with real life examples and has helped our son make progress in his advanced math program.
My 17 year old son is a fairly tough customer when it comes to interacting with academic support, fortunately for us, Will Spach happened to be our first experience with Varsity Tutors. Will definitely has a professional presence about him that earned him credibility with both my wife and I as well as my side early on in our first meeting. He immediately assessed my sons strength and weaknesses and was able to zero in on the tutoring plan that brought my son’s scores up by 200 points in 8-9 weeks. I highly recommend Will Spach for any high school each student looking to improve their college SAT scores. Mike
Arbor Tutors has been extremely helpful. I really like the approach the tutors use.
Ms. Erin is a great Reading and Math Tutor!
Excellent math tutor.
She is a very good tutor. She can tutor my son anytime.
Dale was a great ACT tutor, especially when it came to teaching an international student the ins and outs of the Reading and Writing sections. Since we started working two weeks before the test date, Dale laid out a great strategy of drilling practice tests and helped us find our weak points to review. He had a great base of resources and experience to help us not only with tactics and test taking skills, but how we could apply these study techniques to a broad range of tests and classes.
Nancy is always punctual and prepared for teaching different lessons. She is a great listener and instructor since she is able to connect with students effectively when teaching various lessons. She uses different methods of teaching which helps students learn since they are responsive to the different techniques implemented. She is great colleague who is always helpful to others and maintains her priority on her students. I think that Nancy is always able to overcome any challenges that students face as she is always helpful and has had previous experience teaching students of all levels. I think that she has great work quality, that she is professional and she is always a pleasure to work with.
As a Curriculum and Instruction (Writing) graduate student, I worked as a tutor of higher education writers and was able to reckon the gaps that existed in what the curriculum-specific research communicated and what the educators of the students I tutored responded to students' written products with. Then, using my own analytical skills, I fashioned instruction and tutoring that provided a comprehensive message that was able to compensate for any systemic shortcomings.

Call appointment was made but Léa did not find it necessary to cancel the appointment prior to appointment time while not feeling well. She only ended up answering back to me when I reached out to her to ask about whether she would end up calling me. A misopportunity especially if she would have proved to be a great tutor for my child.
Mary worked with my son (a sophomore in high school) for nine weeks, and the change in my son's confidence with writing improved significantly. Starting in first grade he developed a dislike for writing, which over the years turning into almost a phobia. He was so intimidated by the process, that he would rather fail than turn in an essay. As a result, he never really learned HOW to write, and his anxiety increased. Mary worked with him, starting with the basics of how to map out and organize a persuasive essay. What took him hours before, he was able to accomplish in less than half an hour. It was very empowering, and helped him considerably with facing writing tasks. One thing that I didn't expect with a writing tutor was Mary's incorporation of subtle life coaching. She had him examine his motivations and his goals. They even did personality testing. I think it was very eye-opening for him to have the chance to look at himself from a different vantage point. Her approach is very supportive and validating. She knows what to ask to make you (both the student and the parent) feel important and interesting. Finally, one of the things I appreciated most as a parent, was that she sent me an email after every session detailing what they had done and explaining her plans for the next session. I can't recommend her highly enough.
I observed an SAT prep class. Jason was well prepared, knew how to answer every question, provided good feedback to the students, and prepared them well. I highly recommend him as a tutor.
My daughter loves her.
