My son has already benefited significantly working with his new math tutor. Sam has been very knowledgable, flexible, responsive, and patient. We look forward to our ongoing work with her!
RSK Tutoring was so much better than expected. I honestly told RSK that he should be raising his rates for how much work, honesty, and compassion I was getting through his emails and work ethic. I would easily hire him again for future needs. His credentials are spot on.
Nick is awesome! We are so glad we found someone who can help us with the daunting college application process for our junior. He is involved in all aspects of the process including: college selection, requirements, Naviance, essay writing, etc. We highly recommend him!
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.
Spencer was great to work with. He had a chance to tutor our 6 yr old son for reading and did a great job. Our son stated, "I like that he was patient with me when I was sounding out my words". We have seen great improvement in his reading. Thank you.
I hired Neyeah as a tutor for my daughter last year. My daughter was in class with Neyeah's younger brother in which he was always on the Honor Roll. My daughter is actually the one who brought it to my attention that Neyeah tutors him. I was able to get her to tutor my daughter 3x a week for about an hour each session. They worked on reading, math, and writing. My daughter was struggling in these courses . While under Neyeah she placed on the Honor Roll every month! It was astounding. She even got the award for Most Improved Student. Neyeah is amazing--truly genuine and loves kids. The only reason why she's not my daughters tutor now is because we now live in different states. However , highly recommended!
Steve is a great math tutor. He helped me reach my target GRE score an a little over a month and a half of bi-weekly tutoring. Th eonline format is PERFECT for a busy working mom like myself. What makes Steve's tutoring unique is that it is 100% tailored to your needs not what a set curriculum some course designed. He is open and engaging as well. If you are looking for a great math tutor Steve is the man!
Sandy is not only a fantastic tutor, she's an amazing a trust worthy person. We sent our first grader to Sandy after we noticed that he was falling behind in his reading and math skills. Sandy was incredibly patient and understanding. Her experience as a life long educator is evident. We began to see drastic improvement in our son's reading and math skills only a few short weeks after sending him to work with Sandy! This has been a huge relief for us. We couldn't give a higher recommendation. Our son continues to go to Sandy for help to this day. Thanks Sandy!
Danaya was a very good tutor. She helped me with my writing making it stronger, grammatically correct and legible for the reader to understand. She took her time with me, especially when I found myself getting frustrated, but her calming energy helped shift the mood as we found many different ways to help make the information easier for me to understand.
Max was a delight to work with. He tutored my son for 2 years when we were in Shanghai, China. Our son was in middle school at the time, (7th and 8th grade) and he needed help in getting organized and concentrating on his school work. I interviewed Max and selected him because of his warmth and engaging personality. He is also a writer and, at the time, our son was really into drama and creative writing so we thought that would inspire him. Max was so patient with our son who, at times, could be exasperating. Max would just roll with it and find a way to re-engage him. I don't think our son would have done as well as he did in school if it weren't for Max. Our whole family loved seeing Max, including our housekeeper who got a kick out of talking with Max in Mandarin. We highly recommend Max! He was sensitive to our son's moods and figured out how to motivate him, he was always punctual and very reliable.
I found Amanda as a tutor on an online platform about a year ago and I needed help with my writing skills in school. I need essay writing help as well as general assignment support. Through working with Amanda my grade went up and I have become a much stronger reader and writer. (Her motto: "Every good writer is a voracious reader" is so true) I actually learned to love reading more after working with this tutor. Her rate was cheap enough too for my mom to be able afford lessons every week. I will be working with this tutor on my SAT prep this whole semester too and looking forward to it. Highly recommend.
Gena has been tutoring my son after school and has been a wonderful teacher and supporter. She has a very positive attitude, is encouraging and truly cares for his wellbeing and success. With her help, not only have his grades improved, but his attitude toward homework and school have as well.
Alex is the best teacher I knew. Attentive and demanding, knowing and understanding how difficult it is for a newcomer I get great pleasure from studying with him, as well as a lot of knowledge Svetlana
Olya has been an amazing writing tutor. She has helped me learn to write clearly, powerfully, and concisely. She has definitely improved my writing, my grammar skills, and my overall confidence as a student. She always makes me feel comfortable and I am never afraid to ask questions. Olya has been a great mentor to me during the college essay process. I leave every meeting with a smile and a sense of accomplishment. She is dedicated to her students and is very attentive to details. Olya is a warm person who cares about me as a student and as a person.”
James has been fantastic in helping our kids better understand and analyze what they read, as well as become more experienced essay writers. We would highly recommend him.
