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.
My 4th grade daughter is struggling with reading comprehension/writing and has been working with Jill for a few months. Her essay responses have improved dramatically during her latest reporting period. My daughter has ADHD - Jill accomodates her with a lot of patience, breaks and little activities for the two hour session. We are very please to provide an excellent rating for Jill and highly recommend.
Michelle is an exceptional Tutor who has helped my son with Math on various occasions. Her approach is very personable, as she takes relatively difficult topic such as Math, and makes it fun and exciting for my son. As a result, I have seen a drastic improvement in his comprehension of the subject. Additionally, she has even taken the initiative to help him with other subjects in his class when there is time left over from her tutoring, and the Math homework is already complete. I strongly recommend Michelle to anyone who is in the market searching for a Tutor with the solid credentials.
Abigail was a superb writing tutor for our son in high school. She would dissect complex writing assignments (mostly in history and English) and assist him with every aspect of the process from brainstorming topics, to researching, outlining, organizing, composing and editing. Talented, energetic, efficient and fun, she made the entire process a pleasure. As a result of their collaboration, Adam approached college writing assignments with the necessary tools and confidence to produce high quality papers. We are grateful for Abigail and miss her very much.
Heather is very personable and puts kids at ease quickly. She knows the tests, the strategies for both reading and math and she is a great PSAT/SAT prep tutor.
It is my great pleasure to personally recommend Sharon Lopatin for a teaching or tutoring position.. Sharon was vital in helping me understand and complete assignments in English, reading, writing,social studies and biology. She was also able to help me learn many new things, even when I didn’t understand it the first time. I can assure you that Sharon Lopatin is an outstanding teacher who will quickly become an integral member of your school’s community. Since our first meeting Sharon has been a great teacher because she is able to work patiently with me as I was learning a new language and could explain ideas in different ways. This level of attention and care make Sharon a wonderful teacher and educator for any student or classroom.
Neil Grobman is a great tutor. Neil tutored me in the reading and writing portions of the SAT. We had lessons each week. He introducesd and elaborated on a different topic at each lesson. At the end, Neil assigns word parts and an essay for homework which helped to furthur expand the concepts. Neil made sure that he answers all of my questions and concerns. If he did not know the answer, Neil finds any sources that provides the answer. Neil provides an unique way to boost vocabulary, attack the essay, and complete the passage based questions. I have learned a lot from Neil and I recommend him to anyone in need of a responsible and dedicated tutor.
We would highly recommend Laura. She worked with our son to improve study skills, improve writing skills and prepare him for the SATs and college essays. Laura is passionate about literature and writing and she is gifted with the ability to share and pass on that enthusiasm. She was able to keep our son engaged, interested and commited to the task at hand. Laura was always prepared and professional, but warm and friendly at the same time. She was a great resource for us, contributing significantly to our son's success in high school. Thanks for everything, Laura!

This tutoring service was phenomenal. My understanding of Math and Reading SAT problems increased exponentially and would recommend this service to anyone who is trying to achieve a near perfect, if not perfect, score.
I worked with Patricia at a publishing company and came to know her personally outside of the office. Her extensive knowledge of the English language, impressive educational record, and strong interpersonal skills make her an excellent reading and writing tutor. Under her guidance even the most timid student will improve his or her ability to read and comprehend English composition while gaining the confidence necessary to express ideas on paper.
I'm Polish. Ive 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. Ive really enjoying the lessons and spent very nice time with her. She was easy to contact and very flexible. Im 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.
