Kathy knows how to help high school students improve their SAT score. My high school senior just completed taking his second SAT and he said he is sure he did much better. When we get the results we'll update and post the increase. She's personable, affordable, effective, and flexible. What more can I say. I recommend her!
Lisa is great. Lisa is all about learning the right way, positive reinforcement and truly caring about your child. I first reached out to Lisa for SSAT's but realized she made it much more than that. Lisa is a true educator about how to learn and what you as a parent can do to help. My daughter test scores improved in reading and reading comprehension (her weakness) and in math. Building confidence in herself and in reading is what Lisa does. Having a child who embraces reading now is what it is all about, life long results are the best results. Can't say enough.
I recently ran across a review about Quantum Prep and felt like I just had to share my tutoring story as well. I graduated from Lexington High School in Lexington Massachusetts. Lexington High School is a huge school. When I say huge, I mean I graduated with five hundred and eleven classmates. I was always proud to go to Lexington High, we were rated number 19 in 2014 by Newsweek in their Americas Top Public Schools. Luckily my class sizes were always small and it was not too hard to get help from the teacher. The first semester of my junior year I was taking five classes. I was looking into pre-med, so I took a lot of hard science classes that gave me at least two hours of homework a night. I also worked on the weekends, swam competitively, played in the jazz band and was active in my religious youth group. That year I was taking AP Chemistry as a challenge and knew I was going to have a tough time with it. My teacher, Mrs. Compton, was great! She explained everything really well and broke it down for the class. I just really couldnt get everything in my notebook and in my head with enough time to move on to the next topic, so Id lose information here and there, making it really hard to answer test questions. I got the first F in my entire academic career on the first quiz. Im one of those people who expect a lot from themselves, and I expected As. I felt really bad about myself for the first two quizzes because I wasnt coming even close to what I knew I could do. In addition, because I was spending so much time working on AP Chemistry, my other classes were suffering. And as a prospective pre-med student, I was afraid that because I challenged myself I wasnt going to get into the colleges I wanted. That's when I called Quantum Prep for help. As soon as I had the first tutoring session I felt a little more reassured. We went over my quizzes and homework assignments and my tutor quickly picked up what I was missing and how to keep me focused. I felt much more confident walking into class every day. My tutor figured out how I best learn and we started laughing and making jokes as we did stereochemistry. Yes, he figured out within one session that I learn better with music playing in the background and even knew why! The real difference was that he didnt just teach me material, he taught me how to learn for myself. It was a game-changer in how I approached school and learning in general. So while he was teaching me one class, I was using the learning techniques he taught me to improve my grades in all of my classes. He even patiently sat through temper tantrums and low points. So what happened after I called Quantum Prep? The next quiz I took, I got thirty points higher than the last. The first exam; I got a B+. I went on to graduate in a science heavy degree, and got into my first choice for college and graduated with a degree in Neuropsychology. I highly suggest using Quantum Prep for any kind of tutoring. I had such a wonderful experience and have used the lessons I learned from him in so many different aspects of my life, from studying at the university to job experiences. Thank you Quantum Prep!
Ihab is quite possibly the best math tutor I have ever had. He is enthusiastic, encouraging, and sharp. He is able to adjust his teaching style to fit the learning style of the student. His years of experience allow him to teach his students material in a way most tutors are unable to. 5 stars.
My 11th grader went from a 28 (90th percentile) to a 31 (97th percentile) after meeting with Adam, and a few Skype sessions with his assigned Science tutor. While I wasn't initially confident that my daughter wold respond well to the online instruction, her science score improved dramatically, and she would also recommend this tutoring mode to her friends. In fact, she said she should hear them in her head while sitting for the test the second time. Best news is that she probably won't need to take the ACT as a Senior. Thank you, Your Ticket to College team!
I hired Darien to tutor my 14 year old son in geometry. Before meeting with my son, Darien took the time to discuss the chapter topics with me and was quickly able to prioritize the concepts that my son needed to be taught. Darien is an experienced teacher who has an in-depth knowledge of math so I felt very comfortable that all time spent would be valuable. Darien assessed my son’s ability and by reviewing his prework she was quickly able to direct her attention to areas that needed attention. I would recommend Darien as a math tutor because she has great experience with teaching and has a firm grasp of the concepts. Darien has spent years developing creative and new ways to teach math concepts and her passion for math and teaching are a huge asset for anyone who works with her.
Working with Peter has been very helpful. I am a sophomore in high school, and am in an intense honors math class. Peter has helped me significantly with algebra, pre calculus, and geometry. I strongly recommend him to anyone who struggles with math from the middle school to the high school level.
I had the pleasure of attending a class Mr. Bandla taught during my Bachelors degree program. Mr. Bandla was one of the best instructors at my school. He is very intelligent and knows the material very well. I remember he was always very engaged with his students and took the time necessary to make sure his students understood the important aspects. If a student was struggling with something he was always willing to find time or stay after class and work with that student. I know this because I was one of those students a couple of times. Because of his devotion to me and other students to learn the material I was able to pass that class with an A. One of the greatest things I remember about Mr. Bandla was his ability to make the class interesting, which in my opinion is what makes the difference between a good teacher and a great one. I have great respect for Mr. Bandla and wish he could have taught more of my classes, so when he asked me to give a short summery of him as my instructor I was more than happy to write this.
For the past 5 years i've been getting tutored by Amy. She helped me with high school math and now college math. Every term i end up with an A. She isn't like any other tutor i've ever had. By that i mean when you feel like giving up she won't let you she goes that extra mile to give u the motivation to keep trying. She is very good at explaining the math step by step so i understand. She is also always on time and always goes above and beyond for her students.I am going to continue to use Amy as my math tutor until i am done with school.
I am currently a senior in high school, and I have been accepted into the Honors Nursing Program at my top choice of colleges. Although I have always had a passion for science, this became more focused during my sophomore year in high school. I had an opportunity to participate in a research science and math program. One of the requirements was to complete a year-long science project for the school science fair. I contacted Carina to see if she would be willing to work with me as a mentor on the project, and a tutor in general during the year to support my efforts to excel and grow in the science field, specifically in chemistry. She graciously accepted. Carinas subject knowledge and teaching qualities were a perfect fit. She was able to present and teach the material in different ways. If I easily answered a problem, we would discuss my critical thought process in arriving at the answer; she would also create additional problems and scenarios for me if I needed more practice with a specific type of problem. If I was having difficulty with a concept or problem, she was able to present the logic required for solving it in a variety of ways. She was able to use non-scientific examples that I could easily relate to, and then apply these examples to the science problem we were solving. Naturally, if you learn best by using scientific concepts, she can teach that way, too. She can work with all levels of learning sometimes, I had trouble understanding simple concepts and the big picture, whereas other times I had difficulty with detailed and complex problems. She was able to help me regardless of the difficulty or type of problem. Carina makes you earn the answer by asking questions, and guiding you to use and reflect upon your current knowledge to see how you can apply it to find a solution. I had an outstanding year, and thanks to Carinas help, my science fair project advanced to the regional science fair! Also, this past year, I took a virtual high school science course dealing with genes and diseases. During one particular unit, I was struggling and couldnt seem to put all of the information together. Fortunately, Carina was able to help me sort through the mess of information in my brain, and she helped clarify the concept. I actually started to enjoy doing the problems, when only a week before I had no clue where to even start to solve the problem. Carina was certainly a key part of my success; not only that, but she was a role model for me professionally.
Excellent service! Friendly, prompt and courteous.
I have my bachelor's and master's degrees in civil and environmental engineering. I have been tutoring students in math for the past 10-15 years in pre-algebra, Algebra I, Algebra II, geometry and trig. I also have my license for middle school math and tutored students at the Greater Lawrence Technical School who were in danger of not passing the 10th grade math MCAS. I love what I do. I love getting into the mind of students, to see where the gaps are, filling them in and watching their confidence grow.
I have taught high-school math for 32 years and have tutored for 28 years. I can prepare students for SAT math and all of the high-school math curriculum through AP calculus, which I have taught for the past 25 years. I do not tutor statistics. I have been recognized for teaching excellence and thoroughly enjoy teaching one on one. I can tutor groups for a reduced rate per student. I am willing to travel within Southern Maine and can tutor out of my classroom at Portland High School. I love what I do, and students respect me for my knowledge and passion.
