I have had many tutors in the past and Gloria is by far the best I have experienced. She is so patient and thorough in her lessons. I already feel much more confident using Spanish in conversation in the short time I have been working with her. I highly recommend Gloria to anyone looking to learn Spanish at any level.

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.

Sasha is the greatest math tutor I could have asked for. I had no confidence in my GRE math ability before working with Sasha, and a few weeks later, now two days before my test, I know that there's no problem I can't handle. That's all thanks to Sasha.

I studied with James for my SATs. He has a very unique way of approaching the exam that my prior tutors did not offer. For example, he taught me how to analyze questions based on the way they are written. This was a great skill to have and made me much more confident about going into the test room.

Are you looking for a math tutor who is well prepared for each lesson, who is a math genius, who is clearly passionate about teaching and who really cares whether his students are making progress? Well, you have found him in Aron G. from Spring Valley, NY! I was having difficulty with trigonometry. The support I was receiving in my private school was very limited, but I still wanted to take the Regent. I had moved several times during my elementary schooling and then skipped a grade, which didn't exactly help my math background. I had worked with several private tutors on trigonometry for months to prepare for the Regent. No improvement. In fact, I was feeling less and less confident that I would be able to master the subject. It seemed like I wasn't fitting into the cookie cutter. Then I started to work with Mr. G. At our first class, I couldn't believe how well prepared he was. He had written his own outline of the topic for our lesson. He provided a broad overview of the topic at hand, which made sense to me. He showed me some examples. Then he had me doing problems on my own--and I could! Working with Mr. G. for several weeks really made me feel like I would be able to pass the Regent. Mr. G. built on my strengths. But he also quickly identified my weaknesses. We zeroed in on gaps that I had in my mathematics background. It turns out that though I was missing some basics, I actually have somewhat of a facility for trigonometry. Once Mr. G. helped me to close the gaps and acquire the missing basics, I was able to do the trigonometry. Now I not only feel good about trigonometry, but I feel good about math in general. I am so happy and grateful to have found such a great tutor and great teacher in Aron G. from Spring Valley, NY.

I had taken French for many years, at the Alliance Française and with 2 private tutors from the Alliance. Ainna is better than both of them. Both of the private tutors didn't do anything except talk to me in French. For that they charged $80 an hour. Ainna charges less, and we do exercises that help me really learn. The Alliance classes were good, but they didn't help at all with my accent. And I didn't get a lot of talking time, even in a small class. I highly recommend Ainna!

I hired Beatrice a few weeks ago for my daughter. She loves her. She is punctual and is very good with teaching Sophia what she needs for Spanish. Sophia is very comfortable with her and loves her teaching style. We will be keeping her on as her tutor. She was a great find. I highly recommend her.

One of the best tutors my daughter ever had. She struggled with the sat for a year until we found him. He made lessons around her needs and that helped her do well. She was able to get into the college she wanted.

Charles is an excellent tutor! He was professional, helpful, and radically improved my math score for the GRE. If I had to take the test again, I would absolutely hire Charles again (but thankfully, I don't, because he helped me so much the first time around!). If you're looking for a tutor to help you achieve real results, you've found him.

Daniel is an incredible job preparing my daughter for the SAT. She managed an over 300 point jump in her practice tests. Most importantly, Daniel make my daughter more confident in her abilities and comfortable with the overall process. A good tutor inspires a student not only to work hard, but also to expect better things from themselves and Daniel certainly excelled at that.

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!

Dan is an absolutely fantastic tutor. He's a super knowledgeable, smart, easy-to-work-with tutor who really helped my daughter improve substantially on the ACT. I've used other tutors in the past for academic support for her and she always complained about having to go to lessons, but never so with Dan - she actually looked forward to seeing him each week. I was very impressed and would highly recommend him to anyone! Major thumbs up, both for his skills with students and his ability to achieve top scores on high-stakes tests like the ACT.

Thomas was one of the best tutors I have ever had. After trying a few other SAT tutors, I decided to stick with him. Thomas found different ways to help me understand specific topics and worked with me when I needed extra help. He's constantly researching new tutroing methods and implements them into his sessions. With his help, I was able to increase my SAT score by around 200 points. My parents even signed my sister up for tutoring with Thomas because they saw what an amazing tutor he was. After my SAT process was done, Thomas walked me through the college process and helped me with my essays. Because of him, I am going to college with a full scholarship and I will graduate debt free. Thomas is an amazing tutor and an amazing person. He builds connections with his students and their families that extend outside of the academic sphere. I could not be more grateful to Thomas for all that he has done for me and my family.

I think any adult who pays to study a test just goes to show how important the test is to the person who may be feeling uncertain about him/herself or perhaps some aspects of the test. Hence, I believe the greatest value of a tutor is his ability to motivate his students to the next level of learning and to feel confident in tackling the test. And that is exactly what I found in Fred. I was feeling apprehensive after attempting some questions on the mock GRE test. But now, with the support of Fred, I feel very confident and that confidence motivated me to want to do my very best. So from the bottom of my heart.. Thank you Fred for sharing my journey to a self actualisation need.

    Being an international student in Boston I had quite a few difficulties with English, and so I have reached Lauren to help me out with writing and editing. Lauren is an extraordinary academic writer who writes artistically and passionately on subjects that matter. Most importantly, as a tutor she creates a warm, comfortable and patient environment and has helped me tremendously as a professional with writing and editing applications and different essays. She is an exceptional teacher and person and I would whole-heartedly recommend working with her.
