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.
Ben is tutoring our 6th and 7th graders. It was extremely easy to get our tutoring sessions scheduled-we were able to find a convenient day and time within a few days. Ben has been very accommodating and our kids have been really happy with the sessions. They feel they have been better prepared for their tests. We have been impressed and plan to continue until the end of the school year. Thanks to Higher Mark Tutors!
Daniel did an amazing job with my son's ACT. For my son's first practice ACT test, he got a 13. He was historically poor in test-taking and math. We signed up with Daniel for twenty 2-hour sessions over a semester. After all of the tutoring, my son scored a 20 on his ACT test! Incredible.
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.
Mark tutored my grandson whom will be entering the 2nd grade this fall. What I wanted my grandson to gain from the sessions was confidence that he could do any math problem ranging from two digits to 11 digits at his grade level. Mark not only exposed him to large number addition and subtraction but also multiplication and division. We were very pleased with the services received and will continue to use Freed Tutoring services.
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!
I am a student at Hamline University entering my junior year. I am studying chemistry and secondary education to become a high school chemistry teacher. I have had five years of experience in tutoring students ranging from third grade up to freshman in college in math, reading and science. I am able to help students without giving them the answer and make them think critically about the process they are working through. This critical thinking will be able to be applied in students' future education and occupations.
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. I'm an avid reader, I love The New Yorker and am able to work especially with teens, as I love my nieces and the time we spend together at school functions, mostly performances of plays and poetry slams, also Poetry Out Loud competitions. Striving to avoid intimidation, in tutoring, I'm learning so much myself. And excited to find work that's this rewarding!
As a teacher of foreign languages, I have an excellent understanding of English grammar, spelling, and reading. I am able to teach and tutor in a systematic approach to make the learning easier.
Maggie tutored my daughter, Katie, in high school math. It was a subject my daughter had a great deal of difficulty in. Maggie was able to make the subject relevant and engage my daughter in the learning process. Katie's grades and understanding of the subject improved during her time with Maggie. She still speaks highly of Maggie and remembers her tutoring time fondly.
