Very easy to sign up for this service. A little pricy so we chose the basic level which gives you a tutor who is a college student. We anticipate this will be fine for our needs. Really liked that once we purchase hours we can let our other children use them as well.
Jeremy is very knowledgable, professional education coach who has mastered his field of child tutoring. Aside from being a fine math tutor, he is also helping our child with organization skills. Even though he is new to us, I can say that he is dedicated and dependable. There are no screaming matches in the house regarding her math work and she has started enjoying math which is a big plus. I would highly recommend Jeremy without any reservations. Regarding his fees; you may find a range of tuition fees on thumbtack but essentially you get what you pay for. Having a professional business myself I can tell you that he is certainly worth your child's education and self esteem Dr. K
Tutoring was very professional and went the extra mile- providing homework and tailored study techniques. I would absolutely recommend and hire again.
Kamil is an incredible tutor!! I could not have tackled the beast that is the LSAT without him. This was my second time taking the law school exam, and Kamil opened my eyes to creative, one-of-a-kind, and effective techniques that I had not learned previously from other tutors and prep classes. He helped me substantially improve my speed and tailored his teaching unique to my specific learning style. Kamil is extremely knowledgable and well-versed in all of the LSAT sections. He is accommodating, professional, kind, patient, trustworthy, and greatly passionte about seeing his students succeed. Kamil was an integal part of my exam preparation, and I could not have come this far without his guidance and support. Since I was taking the exam for a second time, I looked for a tutor who could help me break my old patterns and teach me new approaches. Kamil did just that! He was great at quickly recognizing the way that I learn and very effectively carried out his lessons. I would greatly recommend Kamil to students looking to see successful and quick results. Thank you, Kamil!!
James was the perfect fit for our teenager, for both ACT tutoring and college application/essay coaching. Not only did the ACT scores in question jump 5 points to a high score, but he had a pragmatic and helpful approach to the college process that was very well received. He had a positive outlook and cultivated confidence in our son, who had been a little nervous about the application process. James came to our house and was always polite, professional and on time. So far we've had all positive decisions from colleges and are so grateful!
I came to Dr Fikar as a senior, for help with my ACT. Having already worked with a few different tutors, and having only gone up by a couple of points, I was not optimistic that Dr Fikar would have anything new to add to what had already been done. We worked all of the Fall semester, and I took the ACT two more times. My final score was high enough to get me into one of my dream schools, Duke!! Dr Fikar took my ACT up a total of 8 points higher than what I had when we started. I'm so glad my parents made the investment, because it made all the difference for me. Thank you, Dr Fikar!
Are you looking for a math tutor who is well prepared for each lesson, who is a math genius, who is clearly passionate about teaching and who really cares whether his students are making progress? Well, you have found him in Aron G. from Spring Valley, NY! I was having difficulty with trigonometry. The support I was receiving in my private school was very limited, but I still wanted to take the Regent. I had moved several times during my elementary schooling and then skipped a grade, which didn't exactly help my math background. I had worked with several private tutors on trigonometry for months to prepare for the Regent. No improvement. In fact, I was feeling less and less confident that I would be able to master the subject. It seemed like I wasn't fitting into the cookie cutter. Then I started to work with Mr. G. At our first class, I couldn't believe how well prepared he was. He had written his own outline of the topic for our lesson. He provided a broad overview of the topic at hand, which made sense to me. He showed me some examples. Then he had me doing problems on my own--and I could! Working with Mr. G. for several weeks really made me feel like I would be able to pass the Regent. Mr. G. built on my strengths. But he also quickly identified my weaknesses. We zeroed in on gaps that I had in my mathematics background. It turns out that though I was missing some basics, I actually have somewhat of a facility for trigonometry. Once Mr. G. helped me to close the gaps and acquire the missing basics, I was able to do the trigonometry. Now I not only feel good about trigonometry, but I feel good about math in general. I am so happy and grateful to have found such a great tutor and great teacher in Aron G. from Spring Valley, NY.
Wonderful experience working with this company. They connect me with competent tutors and they always respond to my inquiries immediately.
Ethan is a great tutor for my 17 year old daughtet
I referred Nick to my high school students for their college placement and SAT needs. All I hear is positive feedback about his work.
My oldest of three children is 22 years old so I have been through my fair share of tutors. Lenore is the best tutor I have encountered. She really cares for her students and will go above and beyond to help them succeed. Needless to say, I would highly recommend Lenore.
Excellent! Professional and nice! A wonderful tutoring experience.
Charles is an excellent tutor! He was professional, helpful, and radically improved my math score for the GRE. If I had to take the test again, I would absolutely hire Charles again (but thankfully, I don't, because he helped me so much the first time around!). If you're looking for a tutor to help you achieve real results, you've found him.
Stacy was AMAZING when she worked with my daughter, Clementine, when we were worried about her reading ( and writing ). We came to Stacy when my daughter was in 2nd grade, and I am so HAPPY with the results!!!!!!! Clementine LOVES to read. She became a kid who could not put down a book! And she became an incredible test taker, with top scores, I don't mean to brag, it is just here is a kid who we were WORRIED about... I must say, Stacy gives a lot of homework, that focuses in on the mechanics of reading, and we had our daughter do it. And, I think that really helped. Clementine progressed so quickly, with Stacy. I am VERY Pro---the Orton Gillingham technique. Long ago, when I was a kid, in the 70's, I did not know how to read, and unfortunately I fell through the cracks with methods that did not work for me. But, finally in 4th grade, I got an Orton Gillingham tutor, and I did miraculously, with this technique . I was a struggling kid, academically, who then went on to do really well in high school, and went to a really great college (Oberlin), and then Graduate School (NYU). I don't mean to brag, but my point is, I believe in this technique, and Stacy is FANTASTIC !!! She is the best....worth every penny, but have your kid do the homework.
Mr. Frost was our daughter's Mandarin teacher in middle school. He also worked with her as a tutor in the summers. We credit his enthusiasm and natural talent for teaching for our daughter's love of the subject. His high standards became her high standards. Her plan to pursue Chinese as a major in college is due in no small part to her experience as his student.
John definitely is a good tutor in the sense that he has smart strategies to help students improve. I think he was very resourceful and patient when I worked with him in trying to help me understand my mistakes. He wasn't stingy in terms of time either and certainly wanted me to succeed. Something I think John can improve on, however, is making the life of his students a tad easier. What I mean by that is that he sometimes makes working with him a bit of a challenge. Often he would respond to emails late or send graded material over days late. There were things that he said he would send over but it seems he has completely forgotten about it. I completely understand his other obligations in terms of family and work but it's a little disheartening to see that at a point he ceased sending over things he initially promised. Maybe he has a lot of other obligations on his schedule and I understand that, however, I wish he would make this more clear if it were the case. Anyway, if you need extra support with LSAT tutoring I would recommend him for his skills and strategies.
Samantha has been an excellent ACT tutor for me. While most tutors simply teach you a standard curriculum and simply reveal answers to wrong questions, she makes sure that what you learn is understood properly and can be practically used, and really goes in depth in going through your mistakes. This ensures that you don't repeat the same mistakes for similar questions in the future.
Gail is awesome, and the tutors are excellent.
Hong is very conscientious and thoughtful when tutoring my son. He is good at being supportive while maintaining expectations. He has been very helpful in math, writing and organization.
I'm happy that Rafiki was able to help me with my college level math. The course i was taking was for fundamental math reasoning. His very professional and patient. I'll definitely recommend him to others. Keep up the great work!
Martha is an excellent Spanish tutor. She works well with my 8th grade son, and she has helped him become comfortable with the language. His scores have risen thanks to her.
