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.
He helped me out a lot with calculations, and is very experienced with statistics. I would definitely recommend him!
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.
Leah was amazing with my daughter! She helped her prep for the math section of the SATs and we are excited to see how much her score goes up! Thank you Leah for all your help!
Abigail has helped 2 of my sons with their prep school & college essays. Both of my sons were admitted to highly selective schools and became better writers from their time spent working with Abigail. Rich Hall - A highly satisfied client.
We sent all three of our kids to Peter Schmidt's Prepare Test Preparation for help with SAT test preparation. All three saw their scores rise after working with him. He has years of experience, he knows the test, and he understands how to help his students improve their performance. Peter communicates well, he sets clear expectations, and he holds his students accountable. We were very pleased with our experience and would recommend Prepare Test Preparation to anyone who is looking for this type of service. - Ian T.
The staff are awesome, dedicated, motivating, and inspiring for students who need academic help. In one short semester, all of my students have shown academic improvement and as a result, increased self esteem. I am the Program Director for an after school program called, HeArt Under The Hoodie, Youth Violence Prevention Program at Christina Cultural Arts Center in Wilmington, Delaware. This was our first time working with Results Tutoring and we are thoroughly pleased. They provided us with pre- and post-test assessments for each student, brought incentives to encourage participation, used positive reinforcement, developed great rapport, and ended the year with a surprise pizza party and certificates to acknowledge the students' progress. Please check out Results Tutoring so they can help your child succeed. They go above and beyond to get you results!
Mr. Arnold is very experienced and works well with my daughter. She is looking forward to her continued sessions with him and improved test scores.
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.
Rajesh has been a great tutor for my sons. He is professional, friendly, mild-mannered, and very knowledgeable. My sons were able to grasp mathematical concepts more fully with Rajesh’s help, which lead to higher grades on tests and quizzes. We will continue with Rajesh during the summer to get a jumpstart for the next school year.
Maria is incredibly smart and well-informed about the challenges facing students in these days of high-stakes, timed tests. She is the only person who ever spoke to the need for my child to learn the actual skills tested as important tools for success in college and life. It's sad but true that everyone else I met stressed "getting higher test scores" as an end in itself an not as the outcome of real learning. My child had some learning differences and greatly benefitted from the clear expectations and immediate feedback that she received in the TEACH program. She was entirely uninterested in spending time and money on an effort to "raise her score" But she was more than willing to spend time learning things she knew were clear gaps in her education, skills she would need in college. Ultimately, she took her standardized test with much more confidence and felt great about all that she learned in the process.
Laura truly cares about everyone that she works with. Her ability to quickly assess my needs and my areas for improvement are incomparable, and she always does so while keeping me engaged and focused on the skills she teaches me. With her help I was able to raise my test scores, and get into all of my top colleges.
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.
Highly recommended for any age level and grade. My daughter has already seen vast improvements in her overall confidence and test scores. Judy is truly the best!!!!! Hire her, you'll be happy you did.
