Excellent SAT and ACT tutoring.
I hired Daniel for SAT tutoring about a month before the test. In such a short time frame, he not only prepared me for the strategies and problems on the exam, but helped me overcome my long time fear of math. He was extremely patient and understanding, always offering encouragement and little tricks to guide me to the answer quicker. After every session, he gave me notes to take home and always followed up with an email of practice problems and study guides. I took the test recently and have never felt more calm or prepared. I feel it went really well and look forward to spreading his name in the community so others can benefit as well! I would highly recommend Daniel! (coming from the stubborn teenager who did not want any sort of help/tutoring!) :)
Excellent Test Prep Thomas did a great job of preparing me for the MCAs in both reading and math. The strategies he explained made a lot of sense, and taking the test just felt easier than it had before. I was much more confident after he helped me prepare.
I would recommend Debbie as a tutor for multiple reasons. She helped me prepare for the ACT in a few short sessions. She had a solution to a every problem I faced; she was very strategic. I learned strategies I had never heard of. Debbie is also a very positive and enthusiastic tutor, which helped to decrease the stress of the test. She did more than she needed to. She was a very understanding and flexible tutor. For example, she looked over tests that I took and assessed what/how I could have done better, but even more, what I did not understand. Overall, Debbie is a very enjoyable, kind, and well prepared tutor to work with.
Laura has been working with us this past school year and the results have been great! She is an excellent tutor who is able to break down concepts, displays patience with the student and reinforces in our son his ability to comprehend math. If you are looking for someone who will give you personal professional tutoring, she is a great choice!
Viking Tutors is a well organized, efficient and highly effective tutoring service. I worked with a tutor weekly for my ACT test and it was personalized and educational- for less than the price of a class from Princeton Review or Kaplan! My tutor, Jess, was always punctual and extremely helpful. I really recommend this service to anyone!
Jake was extremely responsive and scheduled time right away to meet with my son to help him prep for the ACT. Would definitely recommend Jake to anyone for tutoring.
great act prep, definitely worth the time.
The Swansons helped me study for the ACT and PSAT tests, with great results, and together we have been planning for college. They are extremely adaptable, knowledgeable, and considerate people who have given me a head start in the confusing and competitive education system.
If you are looking for a Calculus or Physics tutor Alex without a doubt is the person to use. I had been spending two hours a night with my daughter and she was meeting with her teacher before and after school to no avail. She was flunking AP Calculus and their was only 4 weeks left in the class. I hired Alex in panic mode. She had two unit exams and a final left to bring her grade up. In four short weeks Alex brought her grade up from an E to a C and she got a B on the final. There is no way my daughter would have passed the class if it had not been for Alex. Alex instilled her with the confidence that she could learn the material and would be successful. That she would be able to learn the Calculus and Physics that she needs to pursue her goal of a career in Marine Biology. Alex has helped keep the dream alive in my daughter and I will forever be grateful for that. When I listened to Alex interact with my daughter during the sessions his love of teaching, genuine desire to help my daughter and ability to connect with her in a fun and productive way was way beyond any of the other tutors I have ever used. As far as responsiveness, Alex rose to the challenge and juggled his schedule. He worked around my daughters cross country meet schedule and other commitments while also making sure he was able to meet with her the night before each exam to help her with final prep for them. He met with her two to three times a week when it worked for her to make sure she passed the class. My daughter has dyslexia which creates unique challenges particularly in math. She tends to look at problems and get to solutions in different ways then most people would. Alex took the time to make sure he understood how my daughter was looking at problems and would adjust the way he approached the solution to match her problem solving style rather than trying to force her to solve the problem using the standard textbook solution guide. Alex made the sessions productive but also fun. I would hear them joke and make light of errors. My daughter also used Alex the following term for her Honors Physics class with the same results. Alex took the time to drive to my daughters school to meet with her physics teacher. He reviewed the curriculum and her tests to see what areas my daughter was struggling with which helped him fine tune his tutoring time with my daughter. You will be extremely pleased with Alex.
