The best SAT tutoring company. Our daughter Lindsay went up by 400 points. Highly recommended.
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.
Mr. Nelson is by far the best math teacher I have ever come across. I first met Mr. Nelson when I was 15. Math wasn't my favorite subject back then, but he made it my favourite subject very soon. I excelled in Maths and was fast-tracked to sit for my O-Level Math paper one year before the rest of my class. He is really a Math God. More than anything, he is a great person. In grade 11, I was struggling with Math, since I had selected to take the subject at Higher Level. Mr. Nelson was so busy, but he still made time for me. He used to tutor me at 5am! What a teacher! He really is such a great person - and sometimes he did not charge us since he knew my parents were trying hard to pay school fees. When I went on to university in Singapore, I started tutoring students in Math. And when I would get stuck sometimes, Mr Nelson was just a call away. He'd help me solve the sum then and there. I can write so much more about how great he is, but I don't think any of it will do justice. What I can say is, if you need the best math teacher (I hear he tutors in other subjects too now), then Mr. Nelson is your guy. He is simply the best. Oh, and I have recommended him to many others too - all who have used his services share the same sentiments. He is our Math God, and alwyas will be.
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.
Steve helps my child advance math. He is a knowledgeable math tutor. Glad to have him.
When I signed up I was not convinced that having an SAT coach would help me much since there seem to be all sorts of web advice apps and resources available. Brad was able to help guide me to the best tools and then push/encourage/nag me to stay focused in the final stages of preparation for the test. It was well worth it, and he clearly had my best interest in mind as he spent a lot of time learning my weak areas, how I learn best, then tailored a program to help me.
I've always been good at math, including the SAT, and I couldn't understand why my GMAT math score didn't seem to reflect that. Then Alex showed me how math skills are only half of it. He used actual GMAT questions to show me how logic plays a big part in getting that high score.
Mrs. Avery has always been excited about working with my son each week. She is very knowledgeable and always prepared before each session. Mrs. Avery follows up after every visit and keep in touch about my sons progress and goals. I would recommend Avery Learning Lab to anyone looking for an excellent tutoring and learning service.
I love thumbtack so much I shared it with my daughter in college and she was able to find a Physics tutor in Wilmington NC. Literacy Connection has helped my son with his college admissions essays and we are all happy!!!
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.
Great Act tutor! I've learned so much and feel very good about thanking the ACT again.
Peter set a very good foundation for my skills in Algebra, Geometry, and English. He was patient, kind, and able to effectively answer many of my questions. Would recommend him to any student.

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 sons writing improved, but so has his interest in the subject. Shes 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.
Carole has been one of the most encouraging, insightful, knowledgeable tutors we have ever experienced working with. She has not only helped our daughter with the actual work, but has also taught her to learn how to stay organized, been a source of encouragement to our daughter and taught her the study skills my daughter needs before heading off to college next year. I would recommend her and have recommended her with great eagerness! She gets an A+ in our book!
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.
I have used many formal and informal methods to achieve student success. I also am very comfortable working in any type of setting. I have had many students go through college and graduate school.
I am certified to teach both middle and high school English language arts. I can help with test prep, college admissions, standardized testing, and other general improvement in writing and reading.
I have always enjoyed working with young men, and have a knack for explaining things in a way that they understand. I began tutoring math when I was in high school. I also have extensive experience mentoring one on one or leading groups of young men during my seven years in the Boy Scouts of America, and six years teaching multiple merit badges at Raven Knob summer camp. In the future I hope to be an Eagle Scout mentor.
I am a rising senior at Duke University, and an incoming member of the 2018 Teach for America corps. Available to tutor SAT, ACT, and edit college admissions essays.
Forty years ago, I began teaching engineering students physics. I developed a reputation for conveying technical information in layman terms using examples and drawings which further enhanced my student's comprehension. My students learn the importance of recording solutions in their own voice, when I am not there, they can understand and apply the steps to solve similar problems.
