I feel so lucky to have found Aaron! He has really done an amazing job to help me complete and understand my Pre-Calculus course. I have found Aaron to be readily available for questions and extra help, as well as making sure I understand everything well. He is overall a fantastic tutor, and definitely someone I will go to in the future for help with other classes.

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!!!

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.

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.

Christina is knowledgeable in understanding the specific details of both the SAT and ACT tests. After meeting with my daughter for the first time Christina was able to do an assessment using components of both the SAT and ACT to help my daughter decide which test will better represent her knowledge. My daughter appreciated how kind and patient Chrisitina was during the tutoring time. My daughter was able to understand the information reviewed during the session and Christina developed a plan to assist her in preparing for the college entrance exam. Christina is timely in her response to emails and punctual and prepared for the tutoring sessions. Christina is professional, yet warm and friendly to both the student and parent. ~February 2018 ~Mother, Educator ~King of Prussia Pennsylvania

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.

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.

John was my son's Pre-Cal (as well as his other subjects) tutor, when he was in the 11th grade. John helped him learn new study skills and organizational techniques. My son was extremely comfortable working with him and always improved on whatever they focused on. John is professional and reliable as well as personable. I will be hiring him to help my son with his ACTs this year!

I'm looking for families seeking out child care and/or tutoring services! I have over 10 years of child care, tutoring and coaching experience working with children aged six months to 18 years. I have been a nanny for up to three kids at a time, with responsibilities including transportation, homework help and meal prep.

I have home-schooled two elementary-school aged for children in the past year and have worked with children with autism, Asperger's and dyslexia. Although math always came the easiest to me, I went to college for communication/journalism (for marketing and event planning), and math and English are my favorite subjects to teach. I also have additional experience training soccer with my father who is a professional trainer working with kids ages 7 to 16, in coaching a high-school-aged boys soccer team outside of Philadelphia and also a co-ed under-9 team outside of Orlando last fall. I have taken a Red Cross class in the past for CPR and first aid and was named a registered babysitter.
