Best math and English tutors we've ever come across. We first tried in person tutoring and then tried online tutoring. We were very happy with both.
Higher Mark Tutors work with both of our daughters. We could not be more pleased with the quality of work with both of them. Micah has been super easy to coordinate times with and has a rapport with both girls, ages 18 & 14, that makes their time with him not only productive but also not boring (that is from the oldest!). Micah also brings to light other ways we can help the girls and is very communicative about their progress. We highly recommend them!!
Daniel is an outstanding tutor. I was impressed with him from day one. My daughter is very fussy about people, and turned down my older two kids tutor. Daniel is on time, and came prepared each time with lots of work. He tutored for the SAT exam and gave me a written feed back after every session. My daughter actually enjoyed being tutored Math, which is her weakest subject, so she is very sensitive about this, Daniel made her feel at ease and i believe that is why it went so well. I have no hesitation in recommending him as a tutor for SAT or any other subject. He will make your kid feel at ease and the feedback is great for the parent.
English isn't my first language. Even though I've learned English in school. I really finally learned English through everyday conversation by putting words into context. So when I decided I wanna learn Spanish, I wanted to find a tutor who can help me do the same. And I found Mark. I had zero exposure to Spanish. Mark really helped me get familiar with the language. He tailored the classes to exactly what I need. Every session he teaches me enough so that I can make a progress, but not too much to overwhelm me. He incorporates songs and pictures to help me remember as well. He is phenomenal.
Excellent speech and diction coach in the span of15 to 20 years. As a pulpit speaker for whom, though fluent in English but not my first language, Claire was excellent. She was firm with a great sense of humor.
We had a very positive experience with Mr. Freed's tutoring service, Aside from the academic aspect, Mr. Freed offerered my son practical test taking strategies and helpful advice for his future.
Mark was my 5th grade teacher and was one of my favorite teachers. He really cares about individual kids. He saw I was more advanced than my peers and so he gave me the opportunity to learn about computer programming to give me a challenge and to fill up the extra time I had in class when I finished before everyone else. He really sees potential in everyone and helps you get there. Now I'm an attorney who negotiates software licenses so I'm grateful for the little intro to programming he gave me. I hope my kids can get teachers and tutors like him who will challenge them and inspire them to try hard things. He has my highest recommendation as an educator.
Great experience on planning, class content, punctuality. She put lots of effrots to make the class special for our french visitors, taking them to a grocery store, manufacturing plant, mall so they had the chance to practice in real life events. we all were very pleased.
Ms. O'Brien was a wonderful tutor for our daughter. She was very flexible with times which was very helpful for us. She was very patient and efficient. My daughter was able to catch up on a month and a half of missed classes (due to changing schools) in a very short amount of time thanks to Ms. O'Brien. I would highly recommend her for any tutoring needs.
Katy was the perfect person for our family! She helped my son Dane with his reading skills through 2nd and 3rd grade. We've worked with other tutors before but Dane is a very shy boy and doesn't like to open up much with strangers. This was not the case at all with Katy, he worked with her like she was his own mother. She got Dane all caught up with his classmates and ahead of them very quick, I couldn't believe the results!

Lots of writing experience, formal education through 1 year of graduate school at University of Iowa Playwriting Workshop; BA from University of Wisconsin at Green Bay, English and the Humanities with emphasis on Creative Writing. Last year I edited the thesis of a 2013 graduate of Hamline University, who received an MFA in Creative Nonfiction.
