Jeremy is an excellent teacher. My daughter has benefited in more ways than I can count because of Jeremy. She has become more organized and is learning an advanced curriculum in both math and writing. He is a dedicated teacher and always makes sure my child's learning comes first. Now, instead of arguing with her to study for exams, she does so without hesitation. He gives me a summary of every lesson and explains what my daughter has been learning and what she can improve on. Overall, Jeremy is a excellent role model and plays a pivotal role in my daughter's life. I won't hesitate to hire him again for my second daughter if needed.

I have been working with Jim on preparing for the SAT and ACT tests since August 2013. For the first couple of months, Jim and I had our sessions on the Upper West Side. As I have to take the GW Bridge to get to Manhattan, I sometimes ran into traffic related problems that prevented me from getting to the city on time to meet him. Jim was very understanding of this, and suggested that we have our lessons on Skype instead. He is very flexible as far as scheduling, which is very convenient for a Junior with a hectic schedule. After taking a practice test, Jim and I went over the questions that I missed. I read the questions out loud because he did not have a copy of the test booklet. I actually wasn't surprised that he was able to tell me all of the correct answers because he has been teaching me all kinds of fool-proof strategies to find the right answer. Jim has helped me raise my composite ACT score by 7 points. Additionally, he has been helping me tremendously throughout this college process. Overall, Jim is a pleasure to work with as he is honest, smart, and encouraging.

It is a pleasure to work with Dillon. He was hired to teach piano to my two sons. He is very knowledgeable and patient to be working with 2 boys in back to back with piano lessons. He has made the process very fun for my kids and they like working with him. Also, after their piano lessons, he works with them on their reading and math skills to keep them current and help with their weak areas.

Robert is a great Italian instructor! I have studied Italian previously, but it has been many years - he has been very patient with me as I struggle through it again. And, he is very flexible with scheduling, which I appreciate greatly due to my crazy schedule. I would recommend him highly as an Italian instructor! All classes are a great combination of conversation, grammar, and reading/translation.

Meena tutored my 7 year old son for over a year. Meena was able to create a program that suited my sons learning curve. First, she was able to improve his handwriting skills to the point that the teacher gave him and excellent. Then they tackled spelling, starting from smaller to much more complex words. I was so impressed with the complexity of words my son was able to read and spell. His reading level increased by a grade. Finally, we moved on to reading comprehension. Meena provided reasonable amount of homework between their sessions and was flexible and dependable.

Jim did a terrific job preparing my graduating daughter for the ACT. They focused on improving her math and writing skills, and over the course of 6 weeks, her practice scores improved markedly. Her final ACT score of 32 is a testament to Jim's teaching abilities. Thanks for all your help. James

We cannot say enough great things about Stacy. Through her instruction, our daughter's reading and writing skills were elevated almost immediately and thus, her confidence in herself as a student. The level of work that Stacy was able to extract from our daughter was so impressive, and her self-esteem rose demonstrably as a result. We are so thankful to have Stacy in our lives, and are eternally grateful to her.

Unlike other teacher we had in the past, Mr. Connor incorporate games and songs into all his lessons which makes language learning much more interest. My children adores Mr. Connor and looking forward to work with him every time.

Dr.V is an incredible French teacher. I really enjoy his teaching technique. I am confident that if I continue my lessons (2x a week) for an indefinite amount of time I will be fluent in reading, writing and conversation. I recommend Dr.V without reservation. I can't wait for my next lesson!!! Merci!!!

I highly recommend Marisa as a tutor. She has helped both of my sons (11 and 14) tremendously. Not only does she gauge their needs perfectly, she also provides exemplary descriptions of those needs (for you) and how she will address them. And her plan is always amazing and spot on. From reading comprehension to writing, Marisa has a knack for bringing out the best work in a child and inspiring him to work harder and smarter. She addresses macro issues as well as nuances, and inspires the kids she tutors to want to do more. It's nothing short of a miracle. And the boys LOVE working with her. If you're looking for someone to help your child, Marisa is the best.

Judy has been tutoring my 5th grade son in reading and writing since last summer. She has really taken the time to get to know his interests and learning style and, as a result, he is motivated and engaged during their tutoring sessions. She targets her teaching to his needs, which range from reading decoding and comprehension to spelling and writing. I have seen a significant improvement in his school performance and in his self confidence since he began working with Judy.

Mrs. Schoenwald was my 10th and 11th Grade english teacher at a special needs High School. Mrs. Schoenwald's instruction was always clear and concise; when focus was lost Marna was able to easily redirect the class back to the lesson. With Marna's guidance and teaching style our class was able to excel and enjoy learning even when what was being taught (book being read or essay) was not interesting or engaging.

Femi Lewis did edits for my full length novel, which were complex because it was written in a southern voice. Femi Lewis rose to the task...She dug right in to the voice, timeline and flow of the novel. If authenticity and superior work is what you're looking for Lewis is it. My novel wasn't complete without her knowledge and structuring techniques. She is a master of punctuation and getting me to say, show and tell my story to my readers. I should have found Ms. Lewis many drafts ago! My novel is "Weaver" and thanks to her work, it's a great read.

I love the Italian language and culture and realized my speaking abilities from my university studies were rustier than I thought during a recent trip to Italy this past summer. Upon my return to the States, I immediately sought private tutoring and I could not be more satisfied in finding Mariateresa. I've seen vast improvement in my comprehension and speaking since I started taking lessons with her. The first couple months were focused on fundamentals and book work but now each lesson begins with about 30 mins of conversation (in Italian of course) before diving into books. I cannot recommend Mariateresa enough regardless of your comprehension level because not only does she challenge me every week to improve my skill but the time spent with her is very enjoyable and something I look forward to every week.

I'm Polish. I’ve lived in NY for several years and attended various English courses. Kathy was my first teacher who concentrated primarily on speaking. We worked a lot on my pronunciation and general speaking skills for over two years. I have learned a lot not only about English grammar but also enriched my knowledge about the culture and habits of Americans. Kathy was very patient, a good listener and interesting to work with. I’ve really enjoying the lessons and spent very nice time with her. She was easy to contact and very flexible. I’m glad to have met her not only as a teacher but also as a person. After all these years we are still in touch. I hope she continues to teach in the future and I would definitely recommend her.

Felipe has been working with me on my Spanish for a few months now and the difference is remarkable. I've improved in every way - reading, comprehension, speaking, and writing. Every session is fun, rigorous, and leaves me feeling like I've made progress even after just 90 minutes. Muchas gracias Felipe!
