    Great results. Couldn't be happier.
    Joseph is super nice. Worked miracles for my daughter. She pulled her grade up from an F to a B in a short time. I am definitely keeping him on my contact list for my other children. I would recommend him to anyone who is struggling.

    The best math tutor
    My daughter is taking Algebra 2 honors in he freshman year so it was difficult for her from begginng to catch up the program. We decided to find a tutor for her and found Mr. Hammerman. He is extremely patient and very knowledgeable. He has been working with my daughter for two month and her math skill and confidence improved greatly. Since then her grades went from C+ to A and gets above 90 in her test and quizzes. Mr. Hammermen is always available when we need him and is always on time. We would highly reccomend him as a math tutor.

    SAT II Tutoring
    Verified Review
    We hired Mr. Joseph Hammerman to help my daughter with her final preparation for SAT II Math 2 test. It was a terrible experience. First, he was late when he came to the session at our home. During the session, not only did Mr. Hammerman ignore the specific questions that my daughter had, but his teaching style was also very condescending and disrespectful. My daughter had been practicing for the test and all she needed was clarification on specific topics. Mr. Hammerman could not meet her needs--only kept repeating some basic concepts. The session went for just over half an hour but I still paid him the full hour rate of $50. However, what happened next was really disturbing. As he walked out, Mr. Hammerman became extremely agitated and started giving racial slurs and cursing. I hope that the other reviews were true (that was the main reason why I chose Mr. Hammerman), but our experience was completely different and Mr. Hammerman's behavior was totally unacceptable and unprofessional.

    This was a problem with a client who ended a first lesson early and was rude and disrespectful, and has chosen to write a review. Mr. J indicates that he hired me for my excellent references. I have multiple references indicating I helped students get A's in honors high school math and helped them get 780-800 on their math SAT Is. Most students I work with who are in danger of failing improve to A's or B's. I was hired to tutor this student for the Math Level 2 SAT 2. Over the phone, the father told me she was an honors student and had been valedictorian or her middle school. Her questions were very basic and she was not initially understanding some of my explanations. After 30 minutes, she got up and talked to her father. The father came back and told me that she was an advanced student and needed advanced explanations. I replied that everyone I tutored for the math SAT 2 was an advanced student. However, if she didn't understand the initial explanation, I would give her simpler not more advanced explanations. Mr. J ended what had been scheduled as a 2 hour lesson after 30 minutes and paid me for 1 hour. I was taken aback, as I pride myself in the quality of my work and had never had anyone end a lesson early and express dissatisfaction. I am a Johns Hopkins graduate with good manners, never make racial slurs or curse, and I am offended by the false accusations.

    My son's experience with Joe was very positive! Joe helped my son get a top grade in Honors Algebra II and Honors Pre-Calc in Chester. Joe knows the honors material perfectly, and was able to explain it in a manner that my son understood. My son improved from C- to a solid B+ (and even an occasional A). Joe worked with him over the summer preparing him for precalculus and he is doing so well he hasn't needed more help. We owe a huge thank you Joe!

    We are having Joseph guide my son with SAT prep. We are very happy we found him. His lesson planning is very much tailored to what my son needs and we see that my son has made great progress within these three months that Joseph has been coming. My son's math SAT score has improved from 680 to 780. We then switched to other areas, and Joseph has also helped my son make great improvements in his writing score. Would highly recommend this tutor to anyone!

    I first contacted Joseph Hammerman to help my son who was having difficulty with tests in Algebra 2/Trig. He was able to build my son's knowledge and confidence sufficiently to raise his test scores by two grades. He continued to work with him for SAT prep, with my son scoring 720 on his first try. We are continuing tutoring for a second sitting of the SAT and possibly the SAT Math Subject test. We are very happy with the one-on-one attention that he has given our son. He is especially good with question and answer, give and take exchanges. He is clearly very strong in all aspects of Mathematics and test taking strategies. I would certainly recommend him for Mathematics tutoring.
