Dr. Brown taught me the SAT. My first score was only 1240. Her care for my education and her knowledge of writing because she an Editor, (and she has a great vocabulary), has helped me raise my score to 1460! I’m so bad at math. Dr. Brown helped me with the Algebra section of the Math also! I finally understand it!

My daughter always seemed to have panic attacks leading up to tests. I was desperate to find a way for her to be comfortable especially as SATs were coming up. All I can say is after a few weeks with the tutors and life coaches at Chelsea International Education, my daughter’s confidence level went up a lot. She was not only prepared to take her SATs but her core academic skills have improved tremendously, which has helped her with her AP exams. The fact that all of the Chelsea tutors are fully qualified teachers, I think makes a major difference and really sets them apart. It really is a quality service and I am very happy to recommend them to anyone.

Laurel is a capable and experienced tutor. She is especially skilled in teaching children for whom English is a second language, or who may be having difficulty coming from a home where English is not spoken well. She is patient and has a great variety of materials that she draws upon depending on the student's need.

Ms Lion is an incredible tutor! So professional, prepared, organized, but so kind and sweet and understanding and works so well with our son with special needs. We have worked with her for three years now and she works amazingly well with our son. We have tried multiple tutors before her and none of them were the right fit. She can accomplish so much with our son in an hour its incredible. She is able to keep him on task, complete his work, while making it an enjoyable experience for him. He is always happy and excited to go and work with her! She is truly a gem! We have also used her as an invaluable resource for IEP meetings! Words can't express how wonderful she is!

Howard have been tutoring my two daughters so that they could increase there SAT/ACT scores. He slso tutors me in Pre-Cal Math and English Literature. He is an excellent tutor that knows the material he is teaching. He is always willing to go above and beyond. He makes sure we understands the material. I was surprised when after just 3 weeks working with my daughter, she was able to raise her SAT scores by 90 points. My daughter has an A in Math now all because of Howard. Myself was failing Math in College. I had a D in the class and now I have a B. My first test I got 46%, and after working with Howard within two weeks I got a 94% on my next test. I don’t know how he know these stuff. It just comes naturally to him. If you want your child or even you has an adult going back to colkege like myself; Howard his the guy you need. My daughters are not the easiest kids to teach, but everytime Howard leaves my home they have more confidence in themselves and they grades have increase. So I know he’s doing a grest job.I recommend him with a 110%.

Ms.Jami started tutoring my children (ages 3 and 4) in Spanish a little less than a year ago. During that time my son's natural interest for reading increased but decreased when working with mommy. Ms. Jami did some preliminary testing to see if he was truly ready and soon she began tutoring him in reading also. Initially, I was concerned that he would not be able to tolerate 30 mins of Spanish then 30 mins reading. However, he is able to maintain in seat behavior with a short break between subjects and the 60 min sessions go by quickly. There is an award system in place to manage behavior and fun interactive hands on activities (singing, music, tactile and visual stimuli) which sustains their attention. As an educator it evident that tasks are age appropriate and consistently tweaked to meet the needs of my children. My children are day and night in terms of personalities and learning styles. I am alway's amazed how Ms. Jami manages both of them in the same session. A sign of a great teacher and a gentle spirit. Ms. Jami presents with weekly lesson plans, carry over activities, affordable rates and she genuinely likes children. I highly recommended her, she is one of my best finds on Craigslist to date! The children love and respect her!

My daughter needed some help with SAT prep, and Ms. Blaine was wonderful. She was able to help her identify what she was not understanding and provided effective strategies to conserve time while taking the test.

took Spanish from Pam for several years about twelve years ago. The excellent approach using multi language avenues ( ie. auditory , visual , oral ) helped facilitate what I wanted and needed to learn...learning the way I could best absorb...which was so less frustrating to me....her patience was refreshing and therefore encouraging for this slow learner!!!!!!! Only a fool would pass up this great language learning experience !!!!! Pam from Center Point , Texas

Club Z was exactly what we were looking for our son. Evan just graduated high school and is preparing to go to college this fall. He needed help with improving upon his writing skills so that he would be well prepared to handle the writing challenges in college. Becky was Evan's tutor and she did an excellent job in helping him achieve that goal. His writing skills have greatly improved as well as his confidence in his abilities. I would highly recommend Club Z for anyone looking for tutoring. Cecelia Mills, Durham N.C.

Krithika is an excellent tutor. She knows all the conventions, rules, expectations, and online resources for topics of high school writing such as critical thinking, literary analysis, research papers, SAT prompts, and college admissions. Like her profile says, she brings passion to the subject. Her energy and enthusiasm are contagious, so not only has my son’s writing improved, but so has his interest in the subject. She’s an excellent communicator who can connect with the student as well as mediate with the parent. I am sure her advice and guidance are going benefit my son for the rest of his life.
