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!
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.
Peter provided exceptional professional preparedness for the SAT and ACT exams.
Dane was great for my children! I highly recommend him for SAT/ACT prep.
My son is a dual sport athlete and finding available time to get his SAT prep in around a demanding schedule was near impossible till we found Allen. Allen worked around his schedule, between school and practices. He came to our house, was professional, prompt and cared about his success, not only on the SAT's but his school work. Allen offered to have him call should he have issue with his chemistry or Calculus homework. Allen showed him techniques that would assist in increasing his SAT score. He worked with my son about 3 or 4 sessions and he had an increase in his overall score of 210 points. I found Allen on Thumbtack and was a little skeptical and leary at first having someone come to our home, but Allens professionalism and results speak for themselves.
I participated in SAT tutoring and college prep with TEACH. It helped me in so many ways. I got into each & every college I wanted & am now attending my dream school, penn state.
I have nothing but praises for Club Z. After completing the Request Info. online I had our Regional Director, Marian Cohen contact me within 8 hours. She readily answered all of my questions and we scheduled an at home consultation. This consultation consisted of her asking very specific questions about our child's learning style, concerns, class material and assignments, along with meeting our child and getting a feel for his personality in order to match a tutor. We agreed to proceed in committing to the program and signing a document allowing Club Z to meet with our child's teacher and act as a liaison to gather any helpful information to assist in our child's success. Meetings were set up and held with the teacher's and very valuable info. was gained. One of the teacher's was so impressed with the professionalism and the extent of involvement of Club Z that they asked me about my impressions so they could use it for their own children. Our tutor was selected and is a perfect match for our child. The Director even dropped off the materials she had gathered from the teachers to the tutor's house over the weekend to be reviewed prior to our first session. The tutor has arrived early each time and sits in our driveway until 5 minutes before our appt. to be sure each minute is utilized for direct instruction. The approach is not passive. He and Marian proactively gather info on upcoming assignments and curriculum to be certain they keep our child at the correct pace. I hear the tutor using "clear instructions, multiple tips, checking for understanding", while encouraging and teaching. Our son has already improved his grades. When I asked him how he feels about this service he said, "I'm getting it and he's a great tutor". I love how we (our child, teacher's, tutor and Marion) are working as a team to help one child. I have received follow up phone calls to inquire how things are going and to confirm all is well. Marian has established a wonderful working relationship with the teacher's that I finally feel as if I can relax and know we are in very capable hands.
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.
Christina worked great with my 12th grade son to prepare for ACT. She gave him good tips that made the work easy for him to understand. He will be utilizing her expertise throughout his senior year.
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.
He was an excellent tutor! Class A act. Lots of energy. Attempts to make lessons relatable and as fun as Algebra can be. Showed up on or before time, each lesson. He was very sweet and a wonderful teacher!!!
She was a great SAT/ACT tutor as well as mentor and friend. She helped me incredibly throughout the entire college application process and has since been a voice of reason in major academic decisions! Highly recommend.
John was a fantastic biology tutor for my high school junior who has ADHD. We've struggled to find a tutor who understood his needs and finally found a good fit with John. He was always very professional and my son loves him! I highly recommend him.
Melissa was an awesome tutor. I had taken an SAT prep course but wasn't scoring high on practice tests- esp in math. She really understands the math and is very patient. I feel so much better and my practice scores are really good. I think I 'll do well on the real test.
Andrew was a great tutor for my GRE studies. He helped me comprehend concepts and really took the time to teach me in a way that I understood. If you struggle in math, then please consider Andrew as your tutor. I am horrible in math and he made math seem more clear and logical.
SAT and ACT test prep tutoring is done by a college communications professor with over 20 years of tutoring experience.
I am truly enthusiastic about the subjects that I tutor. I studied Math in college and have been tutoring for Math (anywhere from algebra up to Calculus & statistics) and for the SAT/ACT (all sections) for about 6 months. My students have averaged about 4 points of increase on the ACT as a result of an average of 12 hours of tutoring. I also played collegiate baseball and can relate to any students hoping to continue their athletic career in college.
I have over 5 years of education experience and am a relatable, down to Earth instructor. My area of expertise is science and math, but I know a lot about test prep and the college preparation process.
We teach academic skills to grades K to 12. We tutor the following: * Reading * Writing * Math * Study Skills * Spelling * Vocabulary * Phonics We offer subject tutoring for exam prep -- SAT/PSAT, ACT and Advanced Placement (AP).
I am currently a college student who is studying English, Spanish and political science. I think that having been a high school student recently, I have a very good idea of what to expect from standardized testing and can prepare students using my own experience to guide me. Additionally, I am a very strong writer and enjoy editing papers, because everyone should be able to vocalize their thoughts and work in a way that is understandable and is going to be well received. By fixing the grammar or format of a piece of writing, you can transform it so that although the content stays the same, the message is clearer and the response is more gratifying.
My patience and ability to quickly diagnose academic deficiencies, coupled with extensive classroom experience in quickly finding individual tailor-made remedies and employing with with my students has shown to maximize information learned in each session.
