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.

LEAH IS ABSOLUTELY WONDERFUL!!! I have a 19 year old son who needed extra help with Math, preparing for his ACT. Leah took the time in the beginning to find out how he learns and what style works best for him. This key!!! She is well prepared and takes her tutoring seriously. I can honestly say for the first time he comes home feeling confident about what he is learning he is not intimidated, not afraid to ask questions. First time learning Math without becoming frustrated. Highly recommend Leah, she is an excellent teacher, she is patient, soft spoken and really cares about what she is doing!! THANK YOU LEAH BERL!!!

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.

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.

This program was the only reason I accomplished my goal score. The teachers are extremely dedicated to making sure that each student is getting the most out of the program. I didn't feel like just another number in this program; I felt like the tutors actually cared if I succeeded. I've recommended TEACH to several friends and they loved it just as much as I did. So thankful to the TEACH team for all their help.

My daughter always seemed to have panic attacks leading up to tests. I was desperate to find a way for her to be comfortable especially as SATs were coming up. All I can say is after a few weeks with the tutors and life coaches at Chelsea International Education, my daughter’s confidence level went up a lot. She was not only prepared to take her SATs but her core academic skills have improved tremendously, which has helped her with her AP exams. The fact that all of the Chelsea tutors are fully qualified teachers, I think makes a major difference and really sets them apart. It really is a quality service and I am very happy to recommend them to anyone.

I was accepted into a university due to Dwight's efforts and more particularly, his way of teaching. Dwight helped me (I had just got out of the marines and had not been in high school in 4 years) to learn how to THINK. Yes, he taught me formulas, science and how things work, but more importantly he taught me how to THINK. It was hard getting back in a school mindset. My acceptance to college was based on an ACT score I hadn't taken yet. Dwight had been helping me prep to take it. Come test day honestly not a thing he taught me from the test prep was on that test. But him teaching me how to THINK about every part to every question, equation, and how to analyze scientific data, is what helped me to succeed and pass the ACT to get into college.

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 am a Chilean, and I'm looking to teach Spanish to all interested in focused in conversations, reading and writing.

About

I am a student at Lock Haven University of Pennsylvania and my majors are accounting and Spanish. I am proficient in Spanish, so if you or your child need help in understanding the language, I would be happy of being in service. Being an accounting major and accounting tutor, I am also good with math and know how to communicate the material to others. Other than my collegiate experience, I grew up with my grandmother who is hard of hearing. I lived with her for the majority of my life, which lead to me becoming fluent in American sign language (ASL). If you have ever wanted to learn a unique language inside of our own, I would happy to help.
