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.

For over a year Nick tutored our daughter once a week for her SAT test. He assigned homework and gave lessons that improved her score around 130 points. We cant thank him enough.

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.

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

Reading faster and improving my reading comprehension is important to me. I took Executive Mind's Speed Reading Program and learned so many ways to improve both. Katya Seberson is extremely passionate and knowledgeable on her topic and made it so easy and fun. I especially loved how I read twice as fast and have some very valuable tools that will enable to me to continue my journey to better reading. I would recommend Executive Mind’s programs to anyone who reads and learns.

Jack has read my tarot close to 100 times by now. He is always thoughtfully intuitive in his interpretation of the cards and eloquent and compassionate conversationally throughout each reading. You will enjoy and definitely gain some insight!

Mr. Connor has been working with my children the last two years. He is an amazing teacher who is very patient and kind to my children. He is teaching them Chinese, singing, drum and guitar. 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.

I had hired Erika for my 7 and 6 year old because they were struggling in math and reading comprehension. I was so happy with Erika and the way she was teaching my daughters. I am a fulltime working mom and when I come home I can barely breathe with 3 little girls. Erika was quick to teach them in a fun way how to learn. I will always have Erika as my go to Tutor in the future if they need help with learning. Thank you Erika! Anela, Basa, Mia and baby Jenna. =]

Mr. Michael is an excellent tutor. He puts his students first and has been very compassionate towards me during the time he conducted lessons with me. He never made money his priority. Whenever we had lessons, he would always be prepared and bring enough material that would carry me throughout the week. I am extremely grateful for his service and I would recommend him to anyone who is looking for an excellent tutor.

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.

It has been a joy having Sara work with our daughter. We hired Sara for some extra reading help and quickly noticed an improvement. Our daughter more confident in her schoolwork than she was before. Sara is patient and incredibly in tune with our daughter's needs.

    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.

    Ms. Castelli helped my daughter with the critical reading and writing portions of the SAT. She was so flexible and reliable. She improved my daughter's scores by 300 points from the scores expected based on the PSAT. She was never late. She made use of every minute and was able to figure out the right approach for my daughter very quickly. Ms. Castelli was the perfect tutor we needed. The assignments were always based on weaknesses she observed and lessons covered. My daughter gained so much confidence, as she was able to observe the change over time.

    My daughter did reading lessons with Helen last summer. She really enjoyed it. They sat outside together and read when it was not too hot outside. Helen concentrated on books that my daughter enjoyed. She remembers Cam Jansen books the most. I think for her first experience with a reading tutor, Helen was great. My daughter enjoyed going and never complained about her reading tutor time and she typically complains about everything.

      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!
