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.
Dany was an outstanding choice! She really took her time to personalize her presentation to fit the style of my school. Prior to the workshop she read the teacher handbook and did research about our school so that her lessons were insync with our philosophy. Dany instantly connected with my team which in turn made it an hour worth while for all who were interested!! I would definitely recommend Imagine with Dany and I will be inviting her back to Creme de la Creme. -Kelly Bartolo, Executive Director
My daughter, when she was in high school, worked with Abigail . Abigail worked with her to improve her reading comprehension and her expository writing. Abigail is brilliant, incredibly patient, and knows exactly how to work with students so that over a period of time they become self-reliant and confident in their work.
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!
My son needed additional supports with reading comprehension. This impacted his reading grade as well as his math grade ( because most of the math problems were word problems). We researched tutoring services and selected Club Z. The services were very individualized. My son was match with Paul who is exceptional. He made reading and math fun for my son. Paul created fun games which felt more like a recreational activity rather than "work". Marian also added an extra layer of support with maintaining communication with my sons teacher. It was a true team experience. I highly recommend Club Z services to others. They are very accommodating and we are very pleased!
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.
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.
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.
Kim has been tutoring my son, Cole for about a year now and to say Cole looks forward to it every week would be an understatement! Cole always has fun with Kim whether it be learning something new, working on homework, reading a book or playing a game and best of all he continues to make great progress. I highly recommend Kim, she is the best!!
Anna has been tutoring my two nine-year-old twins in writing and reading comprehension since September of this year. She works to help them develop their ideas and improve their writing skills by assigning them readings along with writing assignments. She challenges my kids to understand the deeper messages in books and to define new words and literary devices. She comes prepared to every session on time and with personalized lesson plans. Notably, she helps my kids with occasional homework and test taking strategies. Anna is a kind and caring tutor who enjoys the personal aspects of tutoring and takes on challenges of teaching. She understands the strengths and the weaknesses of my kids and patiently inspires them to grow and persevere. I understand that in addition to English Anna also does tutoring in Math. You will be very pleased with her tutoring style and her personality.
Gregory promotes learning through extensive reading and development of vocabulary. Very helpful in SAT prep and reading and writing comprehension. He is a very friendly and attentive tutor. I highly recommend him as an English tutor for any student struggling in this area of their studies.
Had a great experience working with Andrea! She was attentive to my son's needs in English reading and vocabulary lessons, while being creative, and keeping a positive and upbeat attitude!
I was very pleased with Bob and how he updated my resume. One of the best things I liked was that Bob met with me personally and not just a conversation on the phone. He is very thorough and his ideas for resumes and cover letters were excellent. Thanks very much, Bob!
Nancy exceeded my expectations! I am extremely happy working with Nancy. She is professional, knowledgeable and goes the extra mile to help you learn. She demonstrates excellence in teaching. I feel comfortable working with her and she's flexible.
