BEST. MCAT. TUTOR. EVER.
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.
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.
Caryn provides instruction for my first grader in reading, writing and math. Her professional experience, warm heart and enthusiasm for teaching creates a perfect learning environment. My son's classroom performance and confidence at school has significantly improved as a result of Caryn's dedication to her art. She easily identified my son's learning style and tailors each session to his unique needs. She is a master of integrating learning objectives, curriculum and fun. Caryn's communication with the classroom teacher and family enables us to have a unified team working on a common goal.
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!!!
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!
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.
I got Debra's name through a friend who's daughter has difficulty with studying. Best $40 I ever spent! Debra is incredibly patient with my son (4th grade) on his reading skills. After a quick evaluation, she knew the best approach for him. We are having Debra on a weekly basis now. Very reasonable rate -- I would gladly pay more for Debra's tutoring.
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!
I like to help kids to sharpen their skills and master them on their own level. I started to volunteer my time in 2005 in Wakefield Elementary School. I help kids in math and reading.
