Excellent algebra tutor.
I'm so glad I reached out to Guide on the Side for help with my two teens! I'll admit up front that I'm a rather "picky" mom--I have high expectations and I'm careful about who I allow my kids to spend time with. Ms. Karmiller did not disappoint! All of our interactions were professional and so, so supportive. Ms. Karmiller is a compassionate, patient teacher, Her developmental and educational expertise is evident. After spending a little time with each child, she seemed to have an intuitive feel for how to best tackle each child's unique needs. She clearly has a knack for developing supportive and instructional relationships with children. Both of my children felt cared for and respected. Their time with her was "fun" and did not seem like work, even though they got a lot done. One teen was struggling with a high school AP class, and over a period of several months, Ms. Karmiller provided direct tutoring as well as instruction on specific study strategies tailored to my child's learning style. That child raised her class grade by two letter grades! It is such a joy to see her feeling more independent and confident now. I think she's even got the courage to try other AP classes in the future. My other child needed assistance during the transition between high school and college. Ms. Karmiller provided life skills training (guidance on financial budgeting and developing routines) and job search assistance (resume building, job applications, and networking/interview coaching). These are things I'd normally try to help my child with myself, but as is typical of this age, the child wanted to be independent and do these things by himself. It was a great comfort to me as a parent to know that he had another trusted, knowledgeable adult to turn to with questions. He got to feel independent, and I got the security of knowing my child was adapting well during the transition. In addition to meeting with him as scheduled, Ms. Karmiller went above and beyond, checking in with him regularly to inquire about his progress. She also updated me so I stayed "in the loop." I highly recommend Guide on the Side to other parents who want to help their children with school or emerging adult skills.
Dr. Judkins is an excellent teacher. Only after a few lessons with him, my son had a significant improvement in ACT reading, from 19 questions wrong to 2 questions wrong in official practice tests. We are looking forward to seeing other big improvements in his future college level lessons with Dr. Judkins.
Students enjoy working with me because I am patient and I make learning new concepts accessible and fun.
Alex is amazing. Really has a way to help you retain difficult material. Very flexible scheduling. I've had several tutors over the years- none this good. (SAT II physics)
My 6th grade daughter was behind her grade level in math for the past two years.... even working with a math tutor. Our neighbor recommended Richelle.....and now the tables have turned! We just had the most amazing teacher conference and report card. She has an A+ in math, and her teacher was blown away that she had been struggling in the past. Richelle has a way of connecting with her and making math fun. She comes so highly recommended from us!
Our tutor is awesome and meets us in person. The company is organized, reasonably priced, and flexible. There's no long-term commitment and we were matched with a tutor who could assist with multiple subjects. Student Circle is outstanding.
Elissa Hare is an excellent tutor. She made my daughter feel welcome, at ease, and capable of accomplishing any task. We visited Elissa primarily for help with math homework and tests; she was always prepared for whatever assignment my daughter was given. If they ran out of math work to do, Elissa would not waste a moment of time. She would have my daughter digging through her backpack for other homework she could help with. Before going to Elissa, we had considered Sylvan or Kumon. Elissa, however, was able to provide more expertise, as well as a one-on-one environment that was far more suited to our needs.
Greg was amazing he came and made a study plan specifically with where I was at and what I needed. He was always willing to work with my busy schedule and was extremely understanding if i had to cancel. His prices are great and he is extremely knowledgeable. I highly recommend hiring him for any tutoring needs.

I am a college graduate in my mid-20s who always loved being able to help kids. It has always come natural for me to connect well and communicate with them, and I am confident that I could make their school difficulties more enjoyable.

Dawnella has done a great job of bringing our son up to speed in Algebra. He has gained confidence in the areas where he was struggling before and enjoys math more now that he has a better understanding of the subject. We highly recommend Dawnella as a tutor!
My son needed Calculus tutoring quickly. He broke his arm and needed surgery in the middle of the semester resulting in missed classes & him getting behind. He needed immediate help to get caught up fast. Lisa was prompt with responding to our request & willing to meet us 1/2 way. Communicative. Kind. Knowledgeable. Patient. Easy to schedule. Highly recommend.

Stefanie is a wonderful tutor and teacher. She has been tutoring my son in Math for 2 years now as he has moved from 8th Grade to 9th Grade at Benson High School. He now has a solid "B" in Geometry, when before he was struggling in all aspects of Math. She communicates well with us and his teachers and gives us good feedback on what he should be working on. You will be very happy if you use her for your son or daughter.
