Excellent SAT and ACT tutoring.
I can not say enough about the tutoring my son has received. Jon has been an amazing help. He is organized, patient and very knowledgeable. He has found a way to make math far less frustrating for my son, and has helped him to raise his grades considerably.
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!) :)
Adam has been extremely responsive, professional and flexible.
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.
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!
Working with Marilyn was easy she gave me lots of options for what we needed. she just turned on my questions and responded timely to all of them. We were set up with a tutor that matches my daughter. And so far my daughter is enjoying going Th tutoring.
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.
Our tutors are subject matter experts with the ability to impart their knowledge to students in the way each individual student will understand, not by a pre subscribed formula. We also coach executive skills (study, organizational, prioritization, task management) to help students become independent life long learners. We offer our Tutor Doctor 24/7 plan which gives you access to subject practice curriculum and tests.
I have been a classroom teacher and private tutor for thirty-one years. I've taught English reading and writing skills to learners of all ages and levels. I have many years of experience teaching English language learners (ELL/ESL). I am also a licensed Social Studies teacher and have successfully taught History, Political Science and all other areas of social studies to students in middle and high school. In addition, I have taught test taking skills for success on standardized tests from CASAS through TOEFL. For the past twenty-eight years, I have taught English as a Second Language. In this capacity, I have taught reading and writing skills to students from elementary through graduate-school levels, as well as business English and academic writing. I'm passionate about reaching my students so that they feel satisfaction in their accomplishments. I have a warm and approachable teaching style, and have been especially successful in building confidence with students who have had past academic difficulties.

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.
