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.
I would like to start off by saying, I was very nervous about hiring a tutor for my first grader! I wasn't sure about the dynamics of my daughter with someone she didn't know in our home working on "school stuff" that was already a topic of anxiety. But all that went out the window when we met Matt! My husband and I sat at the table with Matt and my daughter and presented her strengths and weaknesses. Matt jumped RIGHT IN and picked up on exactly what she needed help with within minutes. He kept it fun and exciting for her, even when she started to get tired. He used a calm voice and steady lessons to keep her engaged and LEARNING. Matt came right down to a first graders level and used simple words and instruction. After only two hours and the end of our session, she was mocking Matt's instruction and repeating numbers and sequences to her dad and I with confidence! Matt continued to encourage her through out the lesson and kept thing light and humorous. Evee was laughing and smiling with him from the first moment. My daughter is quite shy around strangers and by the time Matt left, out daughter not only shook his hand, but gave him a giant hug and asked me when he was coming back again. Matt is an amazing tutor and I would very HIGHLY recommend him to any parent looking for the extra help. He was energetic and made learning fun for my daughter. After only two hours, she had A LOT more confidence about Math and numbers and coins. Without any hesitation, I would tell any parent to not be nervous about hiring a tutor, and to feel assured and relaxed to hire Matt. There is not a single thing I would critique about his lesson or his ability to work with a 7 year old. He got right down to work and didn't waste a single moment of time. His lessons were full and easy-going and targeted our specific area of need. My husband and I absolutely loved working with Matt, he was an absolute pleasure. I would highly recommend him to any one! Thank you Matt and WyzAnt for putting our fears at ease and helping my daughter get up to par! Confidence in school work for my daughter is PRICELESS to me and I have Matt and WyzAnt to thank for taking a lot of the fear and panic out of getting there ourselves. Thank you, thank you, thank you!
My instructor at College Review was so flexible and knowledgeable. I didn't want to go with an independent teacher because I had a bunch of other school commitments and didn't have the time to dedicate a time slot to a person every week. Any time something came up the next week, my instructor never made an issue with it. She provided a ton of times where I could meet with her which made me feel much more relaxed. I also didn't know you could be ACT certified. So I got a teacher that was trained by the people who make the exam, not just some person who scored well. That made me feel even better about my decision.
Natalie is an excellent tutor!! She is fun and engaging, always comes prepared, and definitely knows the ACT inside and out. After tutoring just a few times, my ACT score increased by four points. By incorporating both strategy and content into our tutoring sessions, and by providing me with plenty of prep material, I was able to exceed my goal score. I would definitely reccomend Natalie to anyone in search of a tutor.
