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......
Ann is an expert in subjects she offers tutoring for, and her teaching techniques are extremely effective and will definitely and dramatically improve the student's performance. Ann taught my son and daughter and yielded excellent results.

She tailors her teaching to my needs, is well organized with good material and makes it enjoyable. She’s a wonderful, friendly person. I looked for a tutor for several years and am so happy to have found her. Laura is a perfect fit. She has many years of experience teaching to all ages and levels of ability. I highly recommend her.

Miss Kelly is awesome she helped my daughter so much over the school year and summer with her reading and she also helped our whole family with our lives she is just an amazing person and I recommend her to everyone.
I provide expert tutoring for $30 an hour. If you or your son/daughter aren't happy with my first lesson, it will be free of charge. I can offer this guarantee because I am extremely well educated, and I have always had a fantastic rapport with teens and young children. Your children will feel more comfortable, and won't just be learning tricks to get answers correct - they will achieve an understanding of the subject studied. I am a former national merit scholar with a high school GPA of 3.92. I graduated a Phi Beta Kappa from Northwestern University with a 3.96 GPA. I can provide tutoring in all subjects, from young children to the 8th grade. I am also a published writer, and can provide excellent help with college entrance essays. High school subjects I tutor are - English, History, Writing, Math (Calculus excluded), PSAT, and SAT prep. I can come to your home or meet the student at a local library. I am currently located in Solon, and would be happy to work with anyone within a half hour drive of area code 44139.
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!
I am an ideal tutor because I utilize the tools and resources available to me from past training, current practices, and constantly seek out new, research-based methods. I make sure that my student and I reach a comfort level where they take risks in their learning. We set academic goals together and work together to reach them.
As teachers we began our career teaching in the classroom to large groups of students. When I founded this service, I was inspired by the possibility of helping students who needed instruction on an individualized basis -- where they would get the full attention of the teacher. Teachers are unable to teach just to one student when they are teaching for a large school district, college or university. Students who need individual, direct and explicit instruction, can achieve success when they are the only one in the class. I formed my educational business based on this knowledge and the success my students have achieved throughout the years.
I am a former teacher and now full-time mother, seeking to use my professional skills by tutoring young people. I have a degree in early childhood education plus extensive special needs experience. My greatest strengths are my creativity and great love of teaching.
I offer tutoring from pre-K to adult with a sense of humor and a passion for learning. I'm not just about worksheets. I look for ways to engage various learning styles and senses. I work one-on-one or with groups.
English is my second language. I know what it's like to go to an all English speaking school and be expected to follow the instructor just as well as the rest of the classroom.
I put hard work and dedication into everything I do. I will make sure what needs to be done- is getting done. If there is a problem, I will not just leave you stranded, I will make sure it is taken care of.
