I struggle with applications of mathematics in the sciences. Physics and chemistry to be specific. So I knew I needed a tutor for my intermediate chemistry course. Aaron made chemistry make sense! He is patient and knowledgeable and has an ability to explain mathematical concepts in a way that really helped me LEARN the material, not just memorize things. For me, having Aaron as a tutor made the difference that I needed as he fundamentally understands chemistry and can explain it in ways that I am capable or understanding. He helped with some of my lab work and helped me understand how what was written on the paper correlated to our procedures. I would absolutely recommend Aaron as a tutor to anyone experiencing similar problems, or even just to anyone that wants a tutor that explains things at YOUR level, because he is very capable of doing that. He has a very positive attitude and a charming personality which made the learning process so much easier! He is one of my new favorite people!
Ms. Jill was excellent from the start. She met with my daughter for an initial "introduction" meeting before getting started with an actual tutoring session to ensure it would be a good fit and that my daughter would be comfortable with her. She spoke in length with me to get to know my child's strengths, weaknesses, personalities and what exactly I was looking for in a tutor. Ms. Jill really connects with my daughter and works to find out where she is weak in reading comprehension and vocabulary so she can help strengthen those weaknesses. My daughter has a learning difference and Ms. Jill has proven to be able to navigate through that to help her understand the information being taught. She is very patient, kind and understanding which makes it a great fit for my daughter who can at times be very sensitive and get frustrated when not catching on as quick as she would like to. In just a few sessions, Ms. Jill has helped boost her confidence and given her strategies to help with reading comprehension, synonyms, antonyms and vocabulary in school and during testing. I highly recommend Mrs. Max as a tutor, especially for children with learning differences. She really gets through and makes a difference.
I took my daughter to Results Tutoring to help stay ahead in her Honors Math class, by challenging her with more difficult problems. She not only excels in her math class, she has tested two grade levels above her current grade. I truly believe because Result Tutoring challenged her and supported her with the learning process, she has excelled. The tutors are very knowledgeable and friendly. The name definitely describes the outcome. If you want to see results in your son or daughter's grades and overall confidence, go to Results Tutoring. It will truly make a difference.
Brandon is a great tutor. He made complicated concepts in Algebra and Chemistry very simple and easy to grasp. With Brandon's assistance, I managed to bring a failing Chemistry grade up to a B.
My son is a dual sport athlete and finding available time to get his SAT prep in around a demanding schedule was near impossible till we found Allen. Allen worked around his schedule, between school and practices. He came to our house, was professional, prompt and cared about his success, not only on the SAT's but his school work. Allen offered to have him call should he have issue with his chemistry or Calculus homework. Allen showed him techniques that would assist in increasing his SAT score. He worked with my son about 3 or 4 sessions and he had an increase in his overall score of 210 points. I found Allen on Thumbtack and was a little skeptical and leary at first having someone come to our home, but Allens professionalism and results speak for themselves.
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.
Cynthia tutored my elementary school aged twins in Spanish for a year. She tailored lessons to match their interests, and didn't just teach from a book. She used a variety of books, videos, games, and drawings to help keep them engaged. She was extremely patient if my boys weren't focused, and gently guided them back to the task at hand. She was very accomodating with our schedule, and easy to get in touch with . My sons were excited to practice their Spanish at a Mexican restaurant as well as Epcot! It was a wonderful experience, and I even used her a few times to brush up on some of my computer knowledge. I hope to use her again in the future.
Over the past 4 years, Sarah Wright has tutored 2 of my children and myself in various areas of math ranging from math SAT prep to advanced graduate level Statistics and several areas in-between! I cannot say enough wonderful things about Sarah's teaching abilities and her level of knowledge in all areas of math. She is truly gifted in tutoring under even the most challenging of circumstances. She is incredible at deciphering a students learning style and knowing how to approach teaching them to achieve the best result. Sarah's dedication, patience and knowledge are truly amazing. The results from sarahs tutoring are excellent and I highly recommend her.
Michael provided college Calculus tutoring in person to my twins during the holiday Winter break, to prepare them to repeat Calculus in the Spring term, as they both struggled and failed when they were initially exposed to Calculus in college in the Fall. He will continue to be available remotely during the Spring to help them as needed while they are away in college. Michael was a fantastic tutor, and was very patient with them. My twins learned a lot from him, and he was able to identify some gaps in their knowledge. He simplified and clarified a lot of the basic concepts, and this should help tremendously as they are retaking Calculus in the Spring. I highly recommend him without any reservations.
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!
Great tutor! Makes learning funMindy is very creative and kids love her enthusiasm. Highly recommend Mindy Tuff.
This tutor was extremely instrumental in helping me pass my precalculus course. I never was strong in math and this course originally presented itself as as a challenge that could potentially prevent me from meeting my degree requirements. The "Guru" was very patient with me as he guided me through homework and how to tackle difficult precalc equations on a step by step approach. My tutor was persisistent and assisted me with problems until he and myself was at a comfortable state and did not stop until he felt that I had a clear and strong grasp of the material. His prices were very reasonable and he accommodated my schedule as well as making sure we had a suitable location in my area for us to meet on a weekly basis. The end results was receiving an "A" in this course which would have never been attainable without his help. I am truly grateful for Mr. Prakash and I strongly reccomend this tutor to anyone who struggles with math and specifically precalc and calc as I continue to work with him as I persue my degree.

The student will be provided with their own account that they can use to schedule time with the tutor. Additionally, constant contact with the parents and teacher is initiated by the tutor to solicit feedback allowing the tutor to better customize sessions to focus on areas where improvement is needed.
I can teach a variety of subjects: Math- calculus, algebra etc Physics - phy 101, 102 etc
