The training,"Optimizing Summer Programming for Student Success: Achieving Outcomes While Having Fun," was an amazingly dynamic experience. When I attend any professional development, I want a presenter who is authentic and knowledgeable; Syreeta's was both. Her activities were thought-provoking, engaging, and practical. The open and honest discussions involving both the teachers and mentors created a great starting point for working as partners this summer. Everyone in attendance left her workshop motivated to making our summer program successful. I wish we had been able to spend more with Syreeta and hope that I get the opportunity to work with her again!!!

My niece visiting from Japan and took lessons twice a week for an about a month with Maura. She really liked Maura's lesson style and found it much more effective than classes she has been taking at her university in Japan. Maura's rate was much more reasonable, though she has long experience in teaching as an ESL teacher.

I love to learn new languages. So I decided to take French as my second language for my school, and quickly realized that I needed help. After going through 3 tutors, I found Miss. Raguthu. When I met her, she was an absolute delight. She sat down with me, explained and answered each and every question I had. She is knowledgeable and has a lot of patience. I was able to pick up my French class grades, from a 65 to a 98. My parents and my Teacher were extremely happy with my progress. I would highly recommend Miss. Meena to any one of my friends and family members. If you want to improve your grade or want to have a high grade, I would definitely choose Miss. Meena.

Bina is a great teacher! One of the bests I had at Baruch College. She helped me to figure it out where I want to work, in what field, my dream job, how to do a strategy to find a job, and how the US market works when you are looking for a job. It was a great experience, I got a great job within two months and I'm sure that was possible because of Bina’s incredible work.

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.

Mari is an overall fabulous young woman, very personable yet professional. There is no doubt that she loves to teach and she is excellent at it. I am 66 years old and just now started to learn Spanish. I tried another teacher before Mari and it just did not feel right and got me nowhere. From the first lesson on I was impressed with Mari's skill to quickly comprehend my needs and how to teach me best and find the right pace for me, while being challenging. I have no doubt that she finds the right approach for any age level. She very thoughtfully maps out charts and quizzes after a lesson and sends them to me for review and practice, yet without any pressure. I could not have chosen a better and more talented teacher. She is simply THE BEST!

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 .

Gail is a very kind warm hearted person. Before Gail my son wasn't doing very well and his grades were poor, he always complained about not feeling well to get out of going to school, he would always say I hate school. Since we have hired Gail my son couldn't be happier he smiles going to school he looks forward to his tutor coming every week it's completely private in my own home. My son has caught up on many missing assignment's, his teacher's have notice a big difference in him. I would Highly recommend Above Grade Level In-Home Tutoring with Gail Switsky. She is always available to answer any questions you may have and more importantly Gail will go above and beyond for your child. We are very pleased.

Very personable teacher. She took the time to understand how I learn (auditory learner with kinesthetic tendencies) and created a practice that works for me. My reading skills have improved tremendously as well as vocabulary. She also keeps a google doc of every session, so I always know what we’ve learned and what needs to be reviewed

Marion is my ESL teacher since July 2016. I knew I made the right choice choosing her When we first emailed each other. She didn't want to meet me unprepared, so she asked questions that could help her understand my language level and my learning goals. (That shows me that she cares) The lessons are fun, easy going and she always tries to challenge me as much as possible.

Robert A.
Verified review

I hired Robert after reading his tutoring philosophy. My son, a consistent high honor roll student, was struggling with 10th grade algebra 2/ trigonometry honors. After the second semester assessment said he was in danger of failing we knew he wasn't going to catch up on his own. I had no idea how to find a tutor and stumbled on Thumbtack. Robert's breadth of knowledge, not just trig, is quite remarkable. He is a gifted teacher. He quickly assessed my sons deficiencies and set out to bring him up to speed. Over the next several weeks, with weekly sessions, Robert would assign my son work and explain the topics in a way that that he finally started to get it. The next step in their relationship was that Robert convinced my son that if he put in the work he was capable of much more than just getting by. Robert has never tried to "sell" us more sessions, there were weeks where he felt he wasn't needed and we would skip those weeks. The end result was a 96 on the Regents. Quite a turnaround for a student who was failing in January and was hoping to just get a passing grade on the Regents. Won't hesitate to bring him back into our home for any future challenges my son may face.

Linda is a professional of the highest order. She was genuinely interested in my development as a student and as a professional. She was always looking for ways to improve the class and learning environment, as well as to adapt the curriculum to my needs and interests. In addition, she always treated me with the uttermost respect. Finally, I must add that Linda not only has an acquaintance of the English language but also of literature. Thanks to Linda’s assignments and recommendations, I discovered several great authors and books that I was unaware of.
