I am very pleased with KC Tutors for the prompt ,courteous service as well as the professionalism of Todd Morgan,he was flexible with scheduling that fit our needs and was very out going and friendly as well, we felt comfortable and confident that he could help with my daughter Savannah. He took the time to evaluate Savannahs learning reports from her school and conferred with us and discuss about what he believed would help her the most academically. With his understanding of her strengths and weaknesses he put together a plan for the time he was tutoring her as well as for when she was studying on her own that seems to have been just right. Savannahs grades and her confidence in herself have both gone up a great amount thanks to Todd's knowledge of teaching the learning processes in a way that was more understandable for her. We are very proud of Savannahs improvement in school and very thankful to have had the services of KC Tutors and Todd,we would highly recommend them and look forward to having their services again this fall. Thank you all from Savannah and family, Thanks Todd

Helga is a great tutor! She is really good at making me feel confident when speaking Spanish. I had some prior Spanish before I started meeting with her but was always nervous to use it. Not only has she helped me build my vocabulary and knowledge of the language but also helped me build confidence to use it!

Shawn definitely helped me when I needed it. Last semester when I was struggling in calculus, he did everything he could so I wouldn’t be so stressed. Even when I wasn’t at tutoring and I had a question about an assignment, I was able to text him a picture and he would respond that day. Shawn is so easy to talk to and very approachable which helped so much because I wasn’t afraid to ask questions. I definitely recommend him as a tutor for anyone.

Duane and his associates are first and foremost concerned about the student, as an educator you can tell his passion for teaching. Duane created a plan specifically for my child to reach her goal on the ACT. I can't say enough wonderful things about Dusne and his company, Maranatha.

Cathan is an amazing teacher and individual. She has the remarkable gift of being able to teach both the beginner and the highly advanced student. Between our three children and involvement in the music world, we have had exposure to many piano teachers. Cathan is singular in her ability to teach the basics of music and playing piano AND musical expression, beautifully interpreting a piece. She is also very good at selecting just the right music that pushes a student forward at the right pace. We came to Cathan after a negative experience with highly-acclaimed piano teacher in the area who just didn't give proper attention to our son. After four years, he simply wasn't progressing, and it didn't seem like it was his fault. We gave him the choice to quit piano or to take lessons from another teacher. To our surprise, he wanted to try another teacher. Once we switched to Cathan, we rapidly saw significant improvement in his playing. Now it is several years later, and even though our son is a young man on the brink of adulthood, he still chooses to take piano from Cathan and practices regularly without ever being prodded. It is a joy to have this music fill our house. We highly recommend Ms. Kabrelian's studio to anyone considering music lessons. It has been a life-changer for us.

    Carlos is a very sincere, intelligent, thoughtful, and endearing person. Anyone lucky enough to have him in their life through work or otherwise are a better person for knowing him. I've learned many wonderful things from my friend Carlos. From Spanish, to life lessons, to knowing when to apply yourself and dig in with a little elbow grease, or even when to simply keep your mouth shut. He is an amazing friend and would, at the drop of a hat, help anyone out who may be struggling, in a tight spot, have a question, or just in need of a great conversation. I would score him 100 stars if it were possible!
