I would be very happy to provide a reference for Roy. I highly recommend him. My daughter started tutoring with Roy in the 9th grade and continued with him the next two years (10th & 11th grades). When she started she was taking the accelerated Math class and was having some troubles with her teacher's style of teaching. Roy was able to fill in the gaps for her and give her the confidence (and knowledge) to succeed in the class. In the first reporting period after she started tutoring with Roy, she brought her grade up from a B- to a B+. That may not seem like a big jump but she was in a very competitive class and the teacher was a hard grader, so she was thrilled. After 9th grade, she continued to have the same teacher for the next two years and she also made it onto the Math Team (which the same teacher also led). Although she had by now gotten used to her teacher's way of teaching, Roy was extremely helpful in explaining some of the concepts more thoroughly and helping her when she was stuck with homework problems. He also helped her prepare for quizzes and major tests as well as the more complex math problems she had to face when competing on the math team. Roy was always patient and explained things to my daughter in a way she could understand. He also gave her different ways of thinking about solving a problem that she wasn't getting in class. I asked her about the types of math she studied with Roy and it sounds like it ranged from topics in algebra (mass points, bases, etc.), trigonometry, and calculus. He sometimes used proofs to explain concepts to her. I doubt if there would be any math topic that he couldn't teach, however. He also suggested extra things for her to consider or learn and posed more challenging problems - she called them "enrichment problems." He not only was interested in helping her stay on top of her coursework, he was also trying to stretch her abilities. I think this really paid off for her - not only did she continue to do well in class, but she also got a perfect score on the SAT Math II Subject Test. Hope you don't mind the long-winded review, but I wanted to show how important Roy's tutoring was to my daughter's success in math over the last 3 years. We usually met with him once a week during the school year and I believe his help really made a big impact on my daughter's ability. She also progressed from being insecure about her math abilities to feeling confident enough to tutor new math team members. In her words, she appreciated having a low pressure environment to learn math - a place where she wasn't been graded or judged, but just getting the personalized coaching she needed. She hasn't had to see him on a regular basis this year (she's taking AP Calculus) but will be using him to prep before big tests. PS - I should also mention that Roy is a very nice person as well.
Very patient guy. WANTS to see you succeed! Helped me achieve the score I needed on my GRE to get into graduate school!
The exam was extremely hard! But I got through it just fine after the three lessons we did before the exam. thanks for getting me through the last two weeks of geometry! It helped my grade improve a whole letter grade!! :) I was able to pass the class after this. I can go into junior year geometry free! 🙌🏼😊
We had our daughter meet the tutor at the local library four times a week after school for six weeks. She went from a low C to a solid A. What more can we ask for?
I can describe Chris in one word: PASSION. He is passionate about teaching and all passion he has is turned into energy always giving 100%. He's the best teacher I ever had. With him I feel I'm really learning and improving my English skills. His classes are alternatives and especially original: with Chris is impossible to be bored! He creates his lessons really thinking to his students. He is one of the only teachers who hasn't forgotten how it was to be a student. In my opinion that's amazing! What I like most is that every class is active, dynamic and unique. Chris for me isn't just an English teacher, he's a life coach: he taught to me to face life in a different way, has taught me that we mustn't give up, because the beauty of life is its "non-perfection". Now I know there is always something to be proud of and that something brings us to achieve the big goals. I feel very lucky to have met Chris, he's a great teacher and a great person. There should be more people/teachers like him.
John has tremendous knowledge and experience teaching algebra. His passion is remarkable and infectious. He has a structured approach to breaking down all of the concepts and teaching them one-by-one. In 5 meetings he has covered nearly a whole year of course work. His follow-up after meetings is fantastic and he always arrives on time, enthusiastic to get started. My son and I couldn't be happier!
My son is a student at Cranston H.S. West who never struggled with a class until Algebra 2. A Mechanical Engineering degree gave me the knowledge to help my son with math, but unfortunately not the patience. After some research I contacted Jonathon and set up an appointment for an initial one-hour session. I figured I had nothing to lose. During the first session I sat in Jonathons living room and casually audited the class. I became more impressed as time progressed. He casually became acquainted with my son and in no time they were comfortable with each other. Jonathon stressed the importance of being organized and having good note-taking skills. He spent a few minutes covering tips to help my son accomplish this. After a couple of one hour sessions my son had a math test (in school) and scored the highest grade in the class. He also told me that he is raising his hand frequently to answer questions. Obviously his confidence was increasing and was feeling good about himself. Jonathon was not just showing my son how to solve problems like teachers do in school, he was teaching him how to understand problems and learn math. My son actually looks forward to his sessions with Jonathon. As an Engineer, a parent, and a former college teacher, I highly recommend Jonathon as a math tutor for anyone requiring help.
Hey-Sung has worked two of my children navigate upper level middle school and high school math classes. She has provided consistent guidance and positive support for both boys. She has made herself available for extra sessions and has helped "on the fly" online or by reviewing "snapshots" by cell phone of problems that they are having trouble with. When transportation and timing have been an issue, she has worked with my older son by skype. Hey-Sung really takes an interest in how they are doing and wants to help them succeed. Perhaps as invested in how they are doing as they are.
Jimmy is a fantastic tutor. He informed himself about the Australian Curriculum and was prepared for my year 5 and year 11 kids from the first day on. He explained the tasks thoroughly and always had examples referencing to music. This created an easy tool for my musician son to understand math and enjoy the teaching. Thanks to Jimmy both kids are up-to-date with their math school work after 8 weeks out of school. Jimmy is kind but also focused on the outcome. Great experience
All three of my children attended 4D at different points in their academic career. 4D is great for students of all ages, no matter their skill level-whether to catch up or feel challenged in a way they are not in school. They will get ahead in a supportive relaxed environment where they can work with children their own age. Dr. Yu is extremely knowledgeable about education related issues and has been an invaluable resource for our family, from course selection in high school to preparation for college.
Educational tutoring on a high school level. Trouble areas in math were addressed and positive reinforcement was the key to success. My son had been tutored by several professional tutors but he never had the confidence that he needed to succeed. We heard about Kristen's services from my son's classmate who was also struggling in math and decided to retain her services. From my initial conversation with Kristen, I immediately took a liking to her. She was professional and personable. She was very receptive to help my son succeed. Kristen was most accommodating when scheduling sessions. My son immediately connected with her and truly felt a sense of confidence after his tutoring session. Kristen is likable and personable. My son's grades greatly improved and he felt a sense of accomplishment. He looked forward to his tutoring sessions because he knew he would have a good sense of understanding his school work after being tutored by Kristen. My daughter, who was a senior in high school, also was tutored by Kristen for "fine tuning" before an exam. She was always amazed with Kristen's ability to simplify the lesson. My son's grades improved significantly. Kristin was a positive reinforcement and truly took an interest in my kids' success. I was happy to refer her to other students. Laurie G.
Michael did a great job tutoring my son with his high school calculus class. My son said that Michael was the best math tutor he'd ever had.
The lessons with Charbel have been outstanding. From day one, my son has told me that he is very helpful and his service is fruitful. I am extremely pleased with the progress my son is making this semester, not only are his grades reaching all time highs, his confidence has improved as well. Best decision we made. Thank you so much Charbel!
Anthony was my private in-home SAT tutor while I attended Westwood High School. He was an enormous help not only preparing me for my testing, but helping me write my college essay. He even helped me select the school that was the best fit for me! Great experience all around, two thumbs up!
Jan educated herself on uniqueness of our school district program prier to first lesson. She connected with both kids during first lesson. Both boys happily share what they learned after every lesson and can not wait for her to come back for next one
Carissa was fantastic. I am just starting back after over a decade of not being in school. Needless to say, I was terrified that I would not pass my Fundamental Mathematics class. I hired her to help me weekly. She was very patient and was able to take the information I needed to learn and form it in a way that was not only easy for me to remember but to actually understand. She was very invested in my success and I felt she was there every step of the way. I have now passed my 93 math course and am moving on to the 97 portion. I will definitely being reaching out to her again. She was always punctual and upbeat and never frustrated with me. I would highly recommend her!
I am writing to recommend Julie as an English or Math Tutor. Julie is an excellent and knowledgeable teacher with experience working with high school students. She is strong in both writing and math, achieving an 800 on her math SAT exam. Julie is a recent graduate of Washington University in St. Louis where she tutored students as part of a program called “Books and Basketball STL” in the St. Louis area. In addition, she tutored English and Math while abroad in Tanzania and Peru. During high school, Julie tutored Geometry and has knowledge of advanced mathematics due to her coursework while at Wash U. Julie is patient, relates easily to students and achieves great results with them. I highly recommend Julie for any student looking to improve their skills.
Glenn started tutoring my son English few months ago and we are starting to see some improvement in his writing and grades have improved. Glenn is honest, ethical and on-time. He has a plan in place (based on our concerns) for helping my son improve in writing and he always come prepared for the lessons. If you are looking for a tutor with knowledge, patience and integrity Glenn is the one.
I have received help with multiple writing assignments in school, ACT tutoring, and supplement and college essay help. I do not know what I would do without Lisa! She has helped me go from a B english student to an A student. She has also done a great job working with me on my supplements and college essay. My english teacher and college counselor loved them! For my ACT scores, she helped me get a 33 on my first ACT in the reading section and helped me go from a 24 to a 35 in the english section.
Nico was my son's piano teacher for 10 months and I couldn't be happier with the love for music Nico fostered in our son. We moved away and miss him dearly! Our son was young but bonded quickly with Nico and was always eager to impress him. We were amazed to find out that our son was selected for the second round of the Special Music School after working with Nico for only 5 months! They have 12 spots for all of NYC so our son's successful completion of the first round is a testament to Nico's ability to bring out the best in his students. The practice time prescribed by Nico was perfect for our son. Nico is extremely knowledgeable about all aspects of piano theory and technique. He is also a very dependable teacher and would confirm lesson times the day before.
