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.
Will was able to reach my high school daughter and relate to her through her outside interests. He was highly encouraging to her and helped build her confidence in her math skills. We have used his tutoring on and off for 3 years. Her grades are always better when she receives consistent tutoring from Will. I highly recommend him especially if your child is struggling with self-confidence in an academic area.
Brandon is hands down one of the most knowledgeable and patient Tutors to work with. He was able to answer ever question I ask. I never felt rushed and he made sure I understood before we moved on. I highly recommend him!!!!
My experience with Results Tutoring started several years ago with my oldest daughter who was struggling with integrated math. She brought her grade up from a C and actually aced her final with an A. Results Tutoring was so good, that I even received help with math when I returned to back to college. I also received an A for all three math courses I took. I recently reached out to them again in 2017, for my youngest daughter who was taking pre-calculus. She graduates HS May 2018, with an A in pre-calc thanks to Joe and his staff. They are truly a blessing to the community, because not everyone learns the same and they definitely understand. The staff are very professional, encouraging and my girls loved that they made it fun to learn math. I recommend anyone who is struggling with math young or seasoned, to give them a try because Result Tutoring will turn your struggles around very quickly. They did for my whole family and I can't thank them enough.
Excellent experience bringing my son's ACT scores up. Individualized assessment, knowable tutors in every discipline, small class size for group sessions. A great overall experience for tutoring and ACT enhancement. .
Heather is a terrific teacher! Her skills as a private in-home tutor are unsurpassed. Heather goes beyond the basics (e.g., being on time, showing up prepared, following up with helpful texts) by working with the classroom teacher to prepare her weekly sessions. As an added bonus .... We hope to use Heather for in-home SAT prep. Heather has the skills to help kids succeed.
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
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!
I must say I am very very happy to have come across the path way of Callista Regis. My son is currently working with her not only his grade level improve but his confidence and class participation also improved according to his teacher. Callista is very passionate so it definitely shows in her tutoring skills.
This past spring 2016, Joohyun Kim was a math tutor for my 13 year old son. He loved her teaching style and quickly brushed up past skills and learned new ones in preparation for high school math placement test which he did very well on. I highly recommend Joohyun. She is professional, affordable, nice and knows how to teach! Bill Bradley, parent of Kai
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!
Kim Gambone is a wonderful lead teacher for our Learning Program, a program that teaches strategies to learn math and literacy to children with Down syndrome. Kim's lessons are creative and fun. Her organizational skills keep the class running smoothly and the children engaged.
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!
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.
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.
Shannon is extremely intelligent and has the unique ability to communicate freely with students of all ages and skills and give them the confidence to succeed in any topic or subject they need assistance with. I give her two thumbs up!!
John has helped me a lot with my writing skills, and I've always enjoyed working with him. He has a talent for helping explain the finer points of technical writing, but he also emphasizes creativity in all kinds of writing, including formal academic and professional writing. While I've felt that some other tutors in the past worked by trying to stifle my voice and put me into a mold, John has helped me find my own voice, so I could become a more competent, confident, and creative writer. I always enjoy working with John, and would recommend him to all serious students.

I am tutoring children to adults in all aspects of English, including comprehension, writing, punctuation, study skills, speaking skills, etc. I am dedicated to improving the skills of my students.
I am a tutor by trade, rather than a classroom teacher who also tutors. I prefer the individual relationship I can develop with my students that helps our sessions be more comfortable and effective.
