In 2004 I was referred to Tom from a friend who got tired of helping me with my math homework. If it wasn't for Tom I wouldn't have passed High School Calculus. He helped me gain a solid foundation in Math, and his passion for the Science was one of my main inspirations in pursuing a Mathematics degree while in College. I wouldn't have the career (which is heavily math intensive) I have today if I hadn't spent the time I did learning from him. He is an absolute professional, and I've recommended him to friends and family who can attest to his excellent work as a tutor.
I hired Jennifer to tutor my little sister, Ray, for her SATs online. In just 6 weeks, her score went up 90 points thanks to some hard work and Jennifer's methodology. Unfortunately for us, Jennifer wasn't the first tutor we worked with. We hired 2 other tutors before her. Both were more expensive (one was literally 10x more expensive) and neither were anywhere near as effective. Ray immediately clicked with Jennifer. Her style is encouraging and direct, and my sister appreciated the candor. I appreciated the way that Jennifer kept Ray motivated and gave her strategies and short-cuts she could use during the test to raise her score. The other thing I like about Jennifer is how easy she is to work with. She is exceptionally clear and responsive. She's flexible in the ways that are important to me, and fair. If you're at all hesitant about online tutoring for SATs, I'd encourage you to seriously consider it over live SAT tutoring. We loved not having to drive anywhere for tutoring. You just don't have the flexibility to squeeze a tutoring session in between tennis practice and dinner when you have to factor in even a short commute. Plus, my sister felt more comfortable studying for SATs in the same place she studies for everything else -- the desk in her bedroom. It was easier for her to get in the zone. Even if we brought a tutor to our home, she would have had to study in a more foreign environment - our dining room table, or some other joint family space. Jennifer is an amazing teacher and a warm soul, and for the quality and care she puts into her sessions, she could easily charge twice the price. This is a no-brainer, folks. I'd recommend Jennifer to any friend looking for a tutor without hesitation.
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)
Keith Hasbrouck has been a great tutor for my son, he is flexible, and his rates are reasonable. My son has received alot of assistance in preparing for the SAT exam and we appreciate all of his assistance.
I couldn't pass up on her experience. She was available for a session the very next day. Within that hour she was able to give me the confidence that I needed to pass the exam that I had the day after session. I was looking for a tutor to help me through my next term. I have found my match. Thanks, Terri!
They help with all academic subjects and are tip-top. Arbor Tutors is a world-class company.
Thorough, accomodating, professional. We found Mr Judkins a thorough gentleman, taught my daughter English Ap 2. He always accomodated us into his schedule though he was very busy himself. We had no confidence in skype sessions but he made my daughter ease into them. She benefitted greatly from his knowledge and expertise. We intend to use his services for my daughter's admission process too.
I love M4M Tutoring services! M4M provides the perfect atmosphere for my sister to learn and grow in all subjects, but specifically math. Not all students have the same learning style, and M4M is able to adapt to each learning style as well as provide the information in a fashion in which it will be retained! All love for M4M Tutoring services, nothing but patience, passion, and excellence has been demonstrated.
Students enjoy working with me because I am patient and I make learning new concepts accessible and fun.
Larry really helped improve my SAT Math score and SAT II Math 1 and 2 scores! Great tutor, kind guy :)
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 have been getting help from Terese since I started college in MATH030, years later I'm now in Differential Equations and I still seek her experience and knowledge to help me understand material. Easily one of the best tutors I have had the pleasure of helping me.

I've been tutoring peers and students in subjects related to math and science for 2 years now. My students vary from high school age to college and above. I am very passionate about math and science and would love to share that with students!
Experience taking all college standardized tests and entering my second year of teaching GED/ Adult Education.
I am a consistent "A" student and I can help you or your child with a plethora of subjects. I have a lot of experience tutoring and mentoring kids and youth and I've also taught English, Math, and Biology to adults. I have an associate's degree and I am working towards my bachelor's degree, with medical school as the eventual goal.
Most tutoring companies look at a student's grade level, and tutor according to where they should be in that grade. We look at students on an individual basis, seeing what areas they have already mastered, and what basic, foundational skills in which they may have gaps. This allows us to create a plan of progress that is specifically designed for your child-- not just for any kid who happens to be the same age.
It's a great way to learn about Math and making people learn the dynamics of how successful it can make you.
