We had an amazing experience with our math tutor, Samiya. She tutored our daughter who has been struggling with math for years and we saw a marked improvement after just a few months. Our daughter would look forward to each session and enjoyed her fun yet informative approach. Highly recommend!

I love that we found Horizon for my 1st grader! I am so pleased with the process from the beginning. Samiya went above and beyond in asking what our needs were and making sure each of those needs were met. She put my mind at ease and made me feel that my son’s progress was just as important to her as it was to me. Our tutor, Jan, has also made this process the best. He is always encouraging my son as he helps him. He makes learning easy by providing different ways to learn and by putting my son at ease. If you want a great company and great tutors, Horizon is definitely the right choice. Thank you Samiya and Jan!

As I write this review, Im smiling with complete satisfaction with Horizon Star Tutoring. I usually dont give 5 stars but I cant recall a reason why this professional tutoring company deserves anything less. My first meeting with Samiya made me feel as if I was talking with a close relative who knew my childs struggle. She showed compassion and empathy towards the hurdles my daughter needed to succeed. Samiya took the time to explain in detail the areas my daughter was lacking and how with her help and my childs motivation, she and I would see results. She wasnt concerned about the money but more about seeing a child go from being depressed about failing grades to holding their head up high because they now knew the answers to questions that were challenging before. She was always prompt and mindful of staying on track for each lesson. I never felt there was a moment that my child was not learning and retaining the concepts she was learning. Thank you Samiya...you truly made a difference in my daughters life as well as mine. Keep shining and helping kids, because you are the star thats on the horizon for us. So if your looking for a A+ tutor for your child, dont look any further, its here .

My daughter was struggling in math for a few years (C- and sometimes D's). Her school suggested that we reach out to see if tutoring would help. With so many out there we started with one place. My daughter loved it, but when it came time for tests, she still failed them. They gave study test to the kids before exams. The practice tests were on things that she had never learned. All students in Las Vegas are not on the Common Core System. For as much as I was paying a week she should've have a A- B average. I decided I needed to switch and that is when we found Horizon Star. My daughter knew Samiya from her days in gymnastics. I said will give her a try. Since then, my daughter has been maintaining an A average. One other thing that I like is sometimes she may not need as much math help one day, but may help in another subject. Samiya has no problem switching gears and assisting in other subjects. I have not seen that in any other program. I've also had her assist with my niece with her college courses too. I would recommend this service to anyone that has someone that is struggling. This place is top notch. !!!!
