Charlotte is a miracle-worker! I've always struggled with math (and by struggle, I mean I have some seriously bad math anxiety). I had to take a statistics class for my coursework and I found her halfway through the semester after almost failing my latest exam (again), feeling hopeless and discouraged, and wanted to drop my class altogether. From day 1 she was professional and easy to talk to and made me feel comfortable instantly. She is wonderful in how she approaches tutoring. She's awesome at adapting her teaching style to however you learn best, is super funny and has an awesome personality that makes learning math feel more like you're learning from a friend than from a stranger. After working with Charlotte, my 3rd exam grade was a B-, I scored a 90% on my final exam, and I just got my final grades for the semester today and found out that I PASSED statistics! Honestly, she was the saving grace that got me through stats, and if she can help ME pass stats, she can definitely help anyone that needs it!
Where to begin....utilizing a tutor wasn't on our minds for the standardized tests for college. Fortunately my daughter didnt fall into a category that we felt it would be necessary. However, when she took her first pass at the SAT her junior year in high school, she found timing her responses on this test properly and recalling her math from years prior were holding her back from her potential. From here, my mind opened to the option of considering a tutor. I let my daughter help make the decision as well, as it would be an investment. I have heard countless stories of putting good money after bad, and I didn't want to find myself and my daughters efforts on the short end of that stick.... Then comes Professor Z & Westside Tutoring Services........ Through a little online research, my gut and a personal friend's positive experience (after a few weeks of her high schooler working with Prof Z) we asked him to consider tutoring our daughter. I found him as delightful in person as in his referrals online... Once in awhile in life, you find that person who has a true passion for what they do....& makes sure not only THEY succeed but those people around them do....this is Prof Z. He leaves little to chance. He has created a pretty fool proof way of approaching tutoring that will allow your students true potential to come through in results. It is efficient, focused, and worth every dime. His family is a beacon of kindness and support. I would (and have) told anyone considering tutoring to be extremely careful. Don't waste money on questionable tutors....it's not something to gamble with. After Prof Z's tutoring for 3-4 months and my daughter's hard work, she achieved her personal goal of a 1560 on her SAT. She even left this second go around of the test happy and cautiously confident. Who does that at these painful 3 hour sittings?! Thank you Prof Z....proving to my college bound daughter that hard work pays off. Thank you for sharing your gifts with us, and to all the lucky community of students who cross your path......
Dan was a great ACT tutor for my son, Mac! Mac's first attempt was a 24, but Dan told us he thought he could raise his score significantly. On his third attempt he made a 30! Dan was professional and knowledgeable, and knew how to connect with my son. I honestly never thought Mac could reach a 30, but Dan knew how to tutor him to get there. He was well worth the money, and Mac's resulting scholarships more than paid for the expense! Dan was very accessible and responsive to Mac's crazy, ever changing high school schedule. I would highly recommend him for any tutoring needs! Cindy Lassing Nashville
Ms Kelly is amazing, she connects with the person she is tutoring in a friendly level. She loves what she does and my son loves her too. He feels comfortable with her. She explores the likes of her students and the tutoring lessons revolve around the needs and the likes. I absolutely love her and will recommend her to everyone!
Karen was wonderful. She came in near the conclusion of our daughter's senior year. She was struggling in several classes. Karen helped her zero in on the tasks at hand and took the time to guide her one on one with practical and thought-provoking ideas. It worked!
Molly does a great job. She is knowledgeable and well prepared. My daughter is learning a lot from her.
The College Review did a great job adapting to my learning style. I'm pretty visual and learn by practicing problems, so the instructor modified my private lessons to cater to how I learn. It was also cool that I was able to pick any time of day for any amount of times per week to have a tutor lesson. Overall this was definitely worthwhile because my score boosted from a 22-29. I would for sure hire them again if I had to choose.
Mr. Corrice was tutoring my son last year. I am very happy with this. He was always on time and prepared with all materials for lessons and problems in areas that my son struggled with. Right now my son has an A in math class.
