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.
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!
John's strategies and guidance boosted my confidence and helped me remain calm while taking the SAT. When I was unsure about certain Reading and Math questions, John went out of his way to explain how to apply the strategies to solve harder problem
I found Ms. Klein to be a pleasure to work with. She is kind and experienced person knowing how to deal with elementary level students. She provides a positive learning environment for our son while working on his writing skills. I am highly recommending Ms. Klein as a writing tutor. She has helped our son grow as a student. He built up his writing skills. Week after week his fantasy of writing is reaching higher levels. Thanks to Ms. Klein our son found a pleasure in his writing essays. He looks forward to working with her. Lenore is very experienced and excellent at discerning your child’s needs and tailoring the lessons accordingly.
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.
He helps the students by giving short (but easy to grasp) techniques. If you need help with SAT writing, then you should get tutoring from him. In the classroom, he always makes sure that you're on task without hovering over you.
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.
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!!!
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!
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.
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.
My daughter was struggling in school with her reading and math. Academic Associates and the wonderful tutors at the center was able to help her refocus her and taught her skills that are benefiting her everyday in school. She is no longer in need of ALS support and received high honors every quarter. Her reading scores rose up into the 90s and she is much more confident in her abilities now. We owe this all to Academic Associates.
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.
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.
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.
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.
My work stands out because I am dedicated to helping my students improve and excel.
I am an NYS English and special education teacher. I will tutor students in grade K-12 in reading and writing, and I can offer homework assistance.
