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.

Dr. Brown made an instant connection with my son. He told me that he thinks she's a good teacher - "much better" than his algebra teacher. This is high praise from a teenager who tends to view all teachers with a jaded eye. I have seen a boost in my son's confidence in the few weeks that Dr. Brown has been tutoring him. She explains abstract concepts in a way that is easy for my son to grasp, and is friendly and genuinely caring. I highly recommend Dr. Brown.

I’ve taken my SATs a couple of times and although I am not a bad student, I just felt that I could have done better, I knew it inside, but just could not find where it was. I got the Getting Into The Ivys tutoring program and worked with a Chelsea tutor. What I really like about my tutor is that she’s a qualified teacher and is professional and knows how to actually teach concepts properly. I really did not want to take any chances. Going to university is very important to me and my family. Susan my tutor developed a special study plan just for me, which helped me focus on my key weaknesses, without feeling de-motivated, in-fact I was so enthused by her, I actually looked forward to all my sessions. She is a brilliant tutor and I am so very grateful. I was able to increase my composite core by 100. I am very pleased.

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.

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%.

My daughter has been going to Mathnasium for quite a while. She was really behind in math, she hated it, in fact. She was in 9th grade but working from a 4th grade level. Mr. King and his crew at Mathnasium of Garner were able to work with her 1 on 1 and she actually is working on grade level in grade 10 now, or Math 2 as they call it in HS. She is not afraid of math anymore, in fact she gets 100's on some of her tests and quizzes . I can't believe the difference. She goes willingly to tutoring, she likes math. I really can't say enough good things. There really is no price you can put on the changes I see in her improvement.

Our child has worked with Linda for approximately six months and has shown strong improvements in math. From the outset, she had our student work on organizational skills which complemented the tutoring sessions and led to greater understanding of the material being taught. She is very familiar with the Wake County Schools math curriculum. I highly recommend Linda.

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.

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.
