Tom is tutoring my son in math. My son said, after both sessions they've had so far, that he learned more in the one hour than he did in weeks in class. He used to say "I'm just bad at math" and now he feels like math is something he can tackle. Tom is professional and a pleasure to work with!
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)
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.
I am so glad I found Tag Tutoring! My daughter did not feel confident in math and currently is taking Geometry (10th Grade) and it was getting her down. She is an Honor Roll student but math is not her strongest subject. Tag Tutoring is patient and kind. As well as very responsive to schedule. After just the first session, my daughter had a huge smile on her face. She was so grateful for the help she received in the short amount of time. Tag Tutoring explained the math a lot better where my daughtr feels like she is starting to understand more. I can’t wait to continue her sessions and see her exceed and improve her grade.
Richelle is the best math tutor. My kids enjoyed her titoring style, learned a lot and got A's in math. I highly recommend!
