We decided to use Westside Tutoring (Jack- AKA Professor Z) based on a phenomenal review given by a work colleague's sister. Her son had gone to Jack for tutoring and increased his score considerably. He was ultimately accepted by his number one college choice and they gave me his contact information. I knew that I was going to need to look into tutoring for my daughter Lauren and I wanted something individualized as opposed to a large class setting or internet based service. Lauren is an excellent student and receives great grades. However, she is not very good with timed tests, and would become overly anxious. Moreover, some of her scores were surprisingly lower than anticipated based on her normal schoolwork/grades. I enlisted the help of Professor Z at the end of January 2017. He came to our home, met with us and laid out the plan. We felt very comfortable with the wealth of knowledge he had regarding the various tests (ACT, SAT etc.) as well as the methodology he would utilize to help Lauren learn HOW to take the ACT test, the clues to look for, the ability to pick up speed (a problem for Lauren was taking too much time). From January thru the start of June, Professor Z worked with Lauren 2-3 times weekly. She would further be given timed testing and simulated ACT's. We decided that June would be our final test and worked the timeline to meet this date. I am so impressed with Jack's work, the rigor of study and the care he gave Lauren. She was treated like a family member and he worked around her difficult schedule. Lauren improved her scores in EVERY subject with considerable increases. English and Math increased by 4 points, Science 3 points and Reading by a whopping 10 POINTS!!!! Reading was the area we had the largest concern-based on her low score- it seemed that she could not finish the sections and then didn't overly comprehend what was needed. Jack taught her what was needed for speed, comprehension and how to select the correct answers. Overall composite score increase of 5 points!! I cannot say enough about Professor Z, he is really wonderful and I would highly recommend!!! Elizabeth Aguirre, mom of Lauren Vajentic Avon High School.
Dan is an amazing person first off and REALLY cares about your child learning the material he is working on and succeeding as a student as well. He teaches your child how to help themselves and figure out things in the classroom when he is not there to help! My two sons needed various help over the year and he is the only tutor that they wanted. Dan has even done skype tutoring sessions with my son in boarding school on a Friday night because he had sports he had to attend other times!! Dan always goes above and beyond and actually makes it fun to learn!! HIGHLY RECOMMEND!!!
