I liked how the answer explanations were very in-depth and something that you will never be able to get just from a prep book. Scheduling for sessions was very flexible and Jennifer would often go overtime to help me understand difficult stuff. Jennifer also helped me make the decision between SAT and ACT as I started out studying for the ACT but then turns out that the SAT suited me better so it saved me lots of time. Overall Jennifer is a very honest, helpful, genuine, experienced, and caring tutor and I would definitely recommend her not just for anyone who is trying to test prep but in general for people who are trying to have a time learning.
Alex has been a life saver. As a 33 year old professional I have always been held back do to math. I went to college twice and both times failed do to my weak math skills.. 3 years of college and nothing to show for it. I tried several tutors over the years who could not teach me. They would just look at me and say "I don't understand how to teach you." I could not even do fractions. As a right brain learner I began to feel hopeless... After a month with Alex I am through fractions and have begun algerbra! I'm going to attend penn state where Calculus is required and I know with the help of Alex I can do it. I'm actually starting to enjoy math! Very strange for me haha Why I reccomended alex: He uses many different approaches to teaching He creates a relaxed environment He can read body language to see if you comprehend Plus more If your a right brained learner or your child is and you feel hopeless you really should give him a chance. It has already changed my outlook and believe will save my life!
Cornerstone has been great to work with. Daniel took the time to find out about us and our goals and matched us with the perfect tutor. We really couldn't be happier and our daughter is in a great place to start the school year off right.
My kids have done so well in school since working with Stephanie at Brain Sparks! Both of their report cards this past quarter were stellar! Her attention to detail and her approach is solid, and best of all, my kids love her and look forward to working with her!
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.
AB Calculus help. Very knowledgeable about every field covered in the class and can easily adapt to whatever will help the most. Very helpful for test prep along with homework help.
One of the best teachers I ever had. Boosted my SAT and ACT scores substantially.
After our one on one interview with Joey, we knew right away Joey would be a perfect fit to work with my son on SAT prep. We found Joey to be very professional, trustworthy, persistence, caring, smart, and very pleasant to talk to and work with. The system/program that Joey used to work with my son worked well and very thorough, it is tailored to my son’s needs. By the end of the program, my son picked up so many helpful skills working with Joey, for examples, reading comprehension which my son really struggled with for the longest time and strategies on tests taking that he can applied in school. My son’s SAT score has improved significantly by over 130 points working with Joey over a short period, that put him in the 90 percentiles. Additionally, not only Joey worked with my son on SAT prep, he was also a good mentor and really motivated my son to do well and recognized my son’s potentials. More importantly, my son gained more confidence and less anxiety going into the real test. On that note, I highly recommended Joey to any parents who is looking for someone to work with their child with SAT help or simply want to boost SAT scores to attracts those Ivy League schools and more scholarships! I was very pleased with Joey. Andrea
My son is in college and an excellent writer. When I asked him what made him so good, he credited 'Mike the Tutor'. He has tutored all 3 of my son's in Math and English with great results.
Frog tutoring is always on top with the information and sessions letting me know how things are going and asking me if I'm happy or if there is anything else I need help with. They want to make sure our needs are met and we are happy with the services.
Douglas is absolutely BEYOND the BEST tutor in the world! He tutored my son in math in high school AND when he was in college. He sat in on his classes, spoke to his teachers AND found him statistics courses in college with a very small student/teacher ratio. He was a life saver. He's also a terrific human being! Thanks to Douglas, my son graduated from college and has gone on to a wonderful career.
Rose tutored my son in math, chemistry and Spanish for almost three years when he was in high school. With Rose helping him, he always managed to get A's and B's in these classes. My son has ADHD and trouble focusing, but Rose was always able to give him enough support that as time went on he really excelled in these subjects. I don't think my son would have earned a GPA higher than 2.5 if it wasn't for Rose's tutoring. He earned a 3.6 GPA and that was over a 1 point difference in his high school career.
Cathy assisted my son with math tutoring and with studying skills during his high school years. We would go to her house. It was always quiet and private feeling. I could stay or leave - it was comfortable either way. She was always on time, prepared (several sharpened pencils at the ready!) and worked very hard with my son. She set goals and expectations with him and held him accountable. It made a HUGE difference for him with school and his understanding of the subject matter, and his grades. Cathy is really good at what she does. She doesn't talk down to the students or over their heads. She meets them where they are and works with them. She gives positive reinforcements for a job well done and in doing so, builds up their self-esteem. When a student doesn't understand the subject, this can really hurt them psychologically - Cathy reversed that process. Cathy also promptly gave receipts for monies paid, which is helpful for our finances. If necessary, she would spent a few extra minutes at the end making sure that my son understood what they were working on and that he understood what was expected of him for the next time. This sometimes led to the next student having to wait a few minutes, but that is all a balancing act. I never felt put out by this if we were the "next student" and appreciated this extra act of care. She was, in general, always very aware and sensitive to start and ending times. We had a great experience!
Beth was my daughter Abby’s English tutor 3 years ago when we just moved to US. English is the 2nd language and Abby passed ESL level 5 within 1.5 years. This is the 2nd time Beth tutoring Abby, but for SAT prep. specifically . Beth is always well prepared and communicates with me the learning target, provides effective feedback to keep me updated on Abby’s progress. Abby is also pleasant to learn from Beth and becomes more confident. It is very important that your kid accept his/her tutor, that makes learning become more interesting and productive. Beth is definitely a great tutor to work with, highly recommended!
Eve tutored my daughter in SAT prep for three months.
Very, very helpful. I highly recommend Scott for his thorough, careful tutoring. He does a great job of focusing on areas that need improvement, and is encouraging and challenging throughout. Worthwhile.
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.
