Dr. Washington is my professor and not only does she teach her classes well, but she provides great motivation speeches to her students. She makes me want to strive to get better grades and just be a better person. She makes you not want to give up on yourself, and honestly some things that she speaks on actually hits home for me and what I go through in life! Overall, she is a great person and I'm glad I had the opportunity to meet her!

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.

I connected with Jim through this website and did nine 90 minute tutoring sessions with him. We worked on refreshing my math skills, after 20+ years of limited use, in preparation for the GRE. Jim is professional, knowledgeable, and encouraging. He organized the initial sessions and gave homework. I brought back questions from the homework and he provided instruction. Jim is intentional and definitely individualizes his approach to the person he is tutoring. I had fun working with him. I can see Jim being skilled with people of all ages, as his manner is clear and personable; and Jim stays on task. My overall score on the quantitative reasoning section of the GRE improved as a result of Jim's tutoring, as did my overall test-taking experience. I highly recommend Jim and will use him again if needed.

Professor Mary is an amazing educator. She is very dedicated to her profession. As an ESL student I had difficulties in my English composition courses. Luckily, I met Professor Mary. My writing has been improved with her help. She is not only an educator, but also a great friend!

As a professional, Katya helped immensely with my memory skills, my reading speed (through speed reading techniques), and also even enhanced my ability to math on the fly (in my mind, without paper and pencil). Her online classes are a wonderful supplement to her face-to-face. I often refer students seeking SAT and ACT prep and she also over-delivers. 5 stars for sure!

Although I have only had Borja for a couple of weeks, he has taught me so much about Spanish and has increased my knowledge a ton! He is very patient and reviewed the material until I understood it. His schedule is very flexible to my needs, which was very important in my circumstance. He honestly has taught me a year worth of Spanish in just 4 classes. Mary Jacksonville, FL

I like my ESL lessons with Marion. She taught me not only the language but also the American culture, which I'm very interested in. Besides that, she is such a nice person that talking with her is always enjoyable.

My son who is in college was struggling in linear algebra which is an advanced math class. The tutor from Ivy League Tutors was professional and demonstrated true dedication in helping my son to pass a stay in his college program. The owner consistently sent updates and summaries of the tutoring sessions. I highly recommend this company.

Danny is an excellent teacher I highly recommend.! With his help I pass math with the highest score. He explains so clearly that everybody can understand . I even started liking Math and as well took some Math classes for this semester. He is awesome because I didn't have a clue about what is math until I got a great tutoring and pass Math with the highest score.For me that was the biggest achievement I did for 2013 .

Julie is a really good teacher. She is very through with helping to get the proper pronunciation. Although I am far from fluent in spanish, I have received many compliments from spanish speakers regarding the fact that I don't speak with a heavy accent. She is also very patient and goes at the student's pace (I work full time and have 3 children so my learning spanish is really just a fun hobby).

      I think Michael is responsive, and shows better value for ESL students. He offered the first evaluation lesson for free, and provided helpful materials for my kids to read. I really appreciated his time and efforts. Thanks.

      I needed some help with algebra in 8th grade. My parents had heard of Jeremy from a friend, so we got in touch and he started tutoring me. Jeremy is an excellent tutor. He helped me with my Algebra and all of my other subjects. He has a vast array of knowledge in all subjects ranging from Algebra to History. On top of that, Jeremy taught me what was important to focus on. He helped me prepare for the SAT and showed me how important it was. I went on to do excellent on it. This is what separates him from other tutors. He informs you of things that will be important in the future even when it has nothing to do with what you are learning in class. All the while, Jeremy is friendly and down to earth. It felt like a friend or family member was tutoring me. I truly couldn't give him high enough praise.

      I have just been accepted to Centenary College for my MBA. Because I am an ESL student, the classes were so difficult for me; I thought it might be impossible to continue. In the first week I took classes from 3 different tutors. Ones who charged me less did not even help me to write a single sentence, others told me they only would proofread what I write, and the last one just felt that he was not going to get me to level I needed to meet my projects on time. With Patricia, I received a just the right combination of everything that I needed:She boosted my confidence.She is very concerned and conscious of my deadlines.At every session we talk about what my assignments are, what I am working on, and she helps me to define and develop ideas. She also makes sure that I check punctuation and grammar and not just rely on the computer to do it. She has a wide range of knowledge and is great in helping me with essays for subjects like marketing, management, and leadership. Almost every week I have assignments and she is there for me. I would highly recommend her to everyone since I am absolutely delighted with her. Sincerely, T. Jikia Hopatcong , NJ.
