My 4th grade daughter is struggling with reading comprehension/writing and has been working with Jill for a few months. Her essay responses have improved dramatically during her latest reporting period. My daughter has ADHD - Jill accomodates her with a lot of patience, breaks and little activities for the two hour session. We are very please to provide an excellent rating for Jill and highly recommend.
Michelle is an exceptional Tutor who has helped my son with Math on various occasions. Her approach is very personable, as she takes relatively difficult topic such as Math, and makes it fun and exciting for my son. As a result, I have seen a drastic improvement in his comprehension of the subject. Additionally, she has even taken the initiative to help him with other subjects in his class when there is time left over from her tutoring, and the Math homework is already complete. I strongly recommend Michelle to anyone who is in the market searching for a Tutor with the solid credentials.
Abigail was a superb writing tutor for our son in high school. She would dissect complex writing assignments (mostly in history and English) and assist him with every aspect of the process from brainstorming topics, to researching, outlining, organizing, composing and editing. Talented, energetic, efficient and fun, she made the entire process a pleasure. As a result of their collaboration, Adam approached college writing assignments with the necessary tools and confidence to produce high quality papers. We are grateful for Abigail and miss her very much.
Maria is the creme dela creme of tutoring. After years of thinking I couldn't excel at math, she taught me the skills to pass two levels of college calculus with flying colors!
Heather is very personable and puts kids at ease quickly. She knows the tests, the strategies for both reading and math and she is a great PSAT/SAT prep tutor.
Steve is a great math tutor. He helped me reach my target GRE score an a little over a month and a half of bi-weekly tutoring. Th eonline format is PERFECT for a busy working mom like myself. What makes Steve's tutoring unique is that it is 100% tailored to your needs not what a set curriculum some course designed. He is open and engaging as well. If you are looking for a great math tutor Steve is the man!
It is my great pleasure to personally recommend Sharon Lopatin for a teaching or tutoring position.. Sharon was vital in helping me understand and complete assignments in English, reading, writing,social studies and biology. She was also able to help me learn many new things, even when I didn’t understand it the first time. I can assure you that Sharon Lopatin is an outstanding teacher who will quickly become an integral member of your school’s community. Since our first meeting Sharon has been a great teacher because she is able to work patiently with me as I was learning a new language and could explain ideas in different ways. This level of attention and care make Sharon a wonderful teacher and educator for any student or classroom.
Neil Grobman is a great tutor. Neil tutored me in the reading and writing portions of the SAT. We had lessons each week. He introducesd and elaborated on a different topic at each lesson. At the end, Neil assigns word parts and an essay for homework which helped to furthur expand the concepts. Neil made sure that he answers all of my questions and concerns. If he did not know the answer, Neil finds any sources that provides the answer. Neil provides an unique way to boost vocabulary, attack the essay, and complete the passage based questions. I have learned a lot from Neil and I recommend him to anyone in need of a responsible and dedicated tutor.
We would highly recommend Laura. She worked with our son to improve study skills, improve writing skills and prepare him for the SATs and college essays. Laura is passionate about literature and writing and she is gifted with the ability to share and pass on that enthusiasm. She was able to keep our son engaged, interested and commited to the task at hand. Laura was always prepared and professional, but warm and friendly at the same time. She was a great resource for us, contributing significantly to our son's success in high school. Thanks for everything, Laura!
Mark was a godsend for my family. My son was diagnosed with dyslexia and was below reading level. I was suddenly thrust into a situation of quick research on dyslexia and what help was available. Needless to say I was stressed. Tutors were very expensive and hard to find in my area. Then I found Mark who had all the right training for my child's issues, was reasonably priced, and additionally had a fun personality. He kept my son on task but made time for fun puzzles and games. My son is in fourth grade this year and was independently tested..he is at grade level. He can read to learn now and does so every day. Thanks, Mark.
Leslie has been tutoring my teenager son for 2 years. Since she started, his English level, writing and reading have improved tremendously, going from below average to beyond expectations. Leslie demonstrated excellent teaching skills, being softer at times and pushing more when needed. Moreover she shown a lot of flexibility to adapt to him and his scheduled when needed and always got the work done. Leslie has been above and beyond expectations!
This tutoring service was phenomenal. My understanding of Math and Reading SAT problems increased exponentially and would recommend this service to anyone who is trying to achieve a near perfect, if not perfect, score.
I worked with Patricia at a publishing company and came to know her personally outside of the office. Her extensive knowledge of the English language, impressive educational record, and strong interpersonal skills make her an excellent reading and writing tutor. Under her guidance even the most timid student will improve his or her ability to read and comprehend English composition while gaining the confidence necessary to express ideas on paper.
Larry is a great tutor. Very professional, warm and reliable. Knows how to teach reading and writing in a clear, systematic way.
So far so good with tutoring for my son ! My son says that he knows his stuff . He is learning a lot already . Manav is scheduling reading for my son to complete . Manav was great with communicating with me to get the tutoring started . He has been timely . They've met up twice so far and we plan to continue until Manav is off to college . I had Manav provide me with a resume and documentation of his score of a 5 on his Calculus Exam . I also requested to have two references with one being his advisor from his high school . He provided me what I needed and his references both were great and they both spoke highly of Manav . They said that he was more than qualified to tutor calculus II. We are pleased !
I have taught reading in the public school sector for the past 5 years but recently left to care for my son. I am looking to stay in the field of education and thought tutoring would be a nice way to do just that. I attended Arcadia University where I graduated in May 2005 with a Bachelor's degree in Elementary Education and also a Master's degree in Reading Specialist in August 2007.
