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!
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!
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.
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.
I have a great experience while working on English writing and speaking with Bina. She's very responsive and professional. She helped me identify my area to improve through listening to me and reading my writing samples, provide valuable feedback, and customize the materials/sessions to focus on those areas. I enjoy my learning experience with Bina and strongly recommend her.
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
My 8-year-old son has been seeing Stacey for reading and writing help since last year. He looks forward to their Friday afternoon sessions because Stacey keeps things fun even though it is more work for him at the end of the school week! She also provides structured but easy activities for us to do at home. They are very manageable for even a parent who works outside the home to fit into a busy schedule. We've seen progress in his work and his classroom teachers have noticed as well. I recommend Stacey without hesitation.
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.
I hired Neyeah as a tutor for my daughter last year. My daughter was in class with Neyeah's younger brother in which he was always on the Honor Roll. My daughter is actually the one who brought it to my attention that Neyeah tutors him. I was able to get her to tutor my daughter 3x a week for about an hour each session. They worked on reading, math, and writing. My daughter was struggling in these courses . While under Neyeah she placed on the Honor Roll every month! It was astounding. She even got the award for Most Improved Student. Neyeah is amazing--truly genuine and loves kids. The only reason why she's not my daughters tutor now is because we now live in different states. However , highly recommended!
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!!!
Ben is amazing with my son! We are really so lucky to have him over to help out with math and reading. My son was immediately comfortable and dove right in to whatever lesson Ben had prepared for the day. I highly recommend him!! He teaches in a way that helps my son relate to the topic and is always thinking of new things that I would never had thought of. He always comes prepared and there is great communication in regards to the appointment times and things we need to work to achieve. Thank you Ben!!
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.
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.
Femi Lewis did edits for my full length novel, which were complex because it was written in a southern voice. Femi Lewis rose to the task...She dug right in to the voice, timeline and flow of the novel. If authenticity and superior work is what you're looking for Lewis is it. My novel wasn't complete without her knowledge and structuring techniques. She is a master of punctuation and getting me to say, show and tell my story to my readers. I should have found Ms. Lewis many drafts ago! My novel is "Weaver" and thanks to her work, it's a great read.
Today I received my sons report card, he went up to whole letter grades. Renee is great! She's very professional and is willing to go above and beyond to help your child. My son loves her! She creates an encouraging work environment and is very understanding. As I've said previously Renee is great !
