Tom Helinski is actually very easy to communicate with: returning emails very quickly. He was able to answer and explain my son's calculus questions easily, and his price per hour is manageable. My only complaint is that PSU is a pain to get to and from during rush hour traffic and the hall that they conduct the tutoring in is very noisy.
I was really struggling in my Stats class, and thanks to Maso Tutoring, I was able to pull through and got a B in the class. Thank you
Loren is a very friendly and patient tutor. He uses really fun games that make the discomfort of learning a language a lot easier and more fun. I would highly recommend him for any tutoring you may want!
We've loved working with Michael who has been tutoring our 7-year-old son for a few months now. He's punctual, caring and "gets" our son (who loves math!). He's brings real-life scenarios and a wholistic mindset into his math tutoring. He totally meshes well with our family's viewpoints and desires. Needless to say, we've been pleasantly surprised at how much our son looks forward to his sessions with him. HIGHLY RECOMMEND.
My son has very much appreciated working with Keith. He is patient, encouraging, and extremely helpful in whatever topic that needs to be addressed. Having a weekly check-in and plenty of support for math made a big difference in how my son approached last school year. We are looking forward to continuing with weekly tutoring sessions with Keith this fall.
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.
We have been so pleased with our tutoring. My daughter has become more confident. I like how the tutoring can be changed to a different way of explaining so my daughter can understand a difficult concept.
Excellent deal. We had tutoring done in our home.
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.
Andrew is the best tutor I have ever had! I was personally never good at math and was always embarrassed to get help from anyone, but he made me feel very comfortable and believed in me when I wanted to give up. He is the reason I passed math 111 and statistics. He was always on time to our tutor sessions and would get right into helping me and would never waste one minute for distractions. Besides his awesome math skills he is in a fact a very nice and caring person! I would recommend Andrew to anyone struggling with math especially those who are on the verge of giving up because he will motivate you and believe in you!!
Students enjoy working with me because I am patient and I make learning new concepts accessible and fun.
Anne immediately responded to all my inquiries and was the only math tutor, out of dozens that could accommodate my sons needs for an emergency tutoring session, that was urgently needed for his circumstances. She was able to commit 2 hours a day for 4 consecutive mornings within a day's notice! She was on time each and everytime, and my son went from totally being behind and lost in math to finally telling me, "mom!!! I love Anne! She helped me so much and is such an awesome teacher!" With my sons feedback and proof that Anne had helped my son finally pass all his assignments online, I knew I found the perfect tutor, and decided to hire Anne for ongoing tutoring twice a week! What set Anne apart from all my other inquires was her prompt responses to my questions, willingness to work with my schedule, reasonable hourly rate, ability to help my son in the level of math he was struggling with. I highly recommend any parent who is looking for a professional, kind, knowledgeable, prompt and committed math tutor for their high school child to first contact Anne with your tutoring needs cuz you will not need to look any further and can save hours in emailing, calling and messaging around for an available math tutor! I am happy to say that after 4 consecutive days of having Anne come to our home for tutoring and the feedback I received From my son, that our family has decided to permanently hire Anne for ongoing tutoring for the remainder of my sons time in high school! Thank you so much Anne for your commitment in helping my son and for being such a wonderfully kind and patient person and for successfully following through with our urgent 6 day deadline of catching my son up in his behind work! You did exactly what you promised you could do and even more! I want you to know that if it were not for your help that my sons high school golf career would of been over! Sincerely Grateful!!! Jennifer in Happy Valley,AND FAMILY!!!
Elissa is excellent with my 14-year-old granddaughter who had become discouraged with her online high school French class. Elissa is encouraging, tells interesting stories, is very attentive, is firm and helps move along with the lessons. I see the excitement in my granddaughter, she looks forward to going to the tutoring sessions.
I reached out to Student Circle to get help on my statement of purpose. Student circle was able to help me beyond just correcting grammatical errors; they helped me improve the substance and style of the essay. Despite working under the deadline, they were able to contribute a lot to refining and finalizing my statement of purpose. I'd highly recommend Student Circle to anyone seeking academic help.
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.
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!
