Can't say enough good things about Gary and his program! My son had taken the ACT test multiple times with no real change in his score. We decided kind of last minute to try Socrates tutoring. After only 3 weeks of tutoring, my son raised his score by 5 points! A true testament to this program! Thank you, Gary and Pam!
I am the mother of an (now graduated) SMU student. I live in Fort Worth and my daughter attended SMU in Dallas, so Rebecca and I have never met. My girl needed expert help passing Spanish, and I found and contracted with Rebecca for tutoring sight unseen. She met with my daughter regularly and improved her skills and my girl DID pass the class. We owe Rebecca a debt of gratitude and I recommend her without hesitation.
Let me preface this all by saying my goal for learning a language is to attain mastery such that I can communicate in all aspects of reading, writing, speaking, listening to a level that is comparable of a native speaker (with reasonable exceptions of course). Previously I had attended several in person learning institutions like a community college, a university, and private in-person tutoring to help me get to an intermediate level. So, in researching other alternatives I was hesitant to pursue telecommuted lessons as I was worried there would be aspects that are not adequately or as easily achieved via in-person teaching. Fluency Corp is a fantastic organization that has ameliorated all of these concerns and done so in an exceptional fashion! The teacher I was paired with is incredibly intelligent, very facilitating, and creates graded work that is at my specific learning level. Additionally any issues we encounter in learning is emphasized in future lessons so that I can hammer out the issues I was experiencing. I purchased 100 hours of education and have been thoroughly please with the experience. So much so that I'm actively looking to see if I can help my spouse participate in this process. I would absolutely recommend it to a friend or family member, and even strangers. The only negative concern I have is that "Fluency Corp" sounds like an evil corporation from a movie. It absolutely is not evil, and is a fantastic organization, however the name just has that kind of feeling to me :)
Samara was my tutor when I was in 8th grade. I was studying to get into a private high school and I needed help preparing for the entrance exam. Samara primarily helped me study for the two math exams that were in the test, but she also helped me with the vocabulary/English section. I am not a big fan of studying for exams in my free time, but Samara made our time together fun and stimulating. She helped me maneuver through the tricky waters of algebra and geometry, and I was surprised to realize that I actually enjoyed doing it. My entire family grew to love Samara and we all loved when she came over to tutor me. She helped me get into private school and I am forever grateful for her help. Samara is a phenomenal tutor and she is simply a pleasure to be around. I highly recommend Samara for any tutoring needs you may have because she is the best.
The quality of the tutoring was top notch that is why we bought a few too many tutoring sessions but they immediately refunded us a couple of hours promptly, with no questions asked. I was very impressed with the service I received. I would not hesitate to recommend Arbor Tutors to all of my friends and family.
We are sending our 7th grade daughter to Mrs Alexander for Math tutoring from the beginning of this school year and it has been fantastic. She is not only highly qualified but very passionate about teaching Math. My daugher used to go to a tutoring center before we relocated to this city, she usually scores high grades in math. This is the first time we are trying private tutoring and we have nothing but great things to say about Mrs Alexander. She definitely has her way of teaching various methods of solving problems and my daughter loves that part. My daughter goes to the class with same excitement week in and week out. I truely believe she is above and beyond in Math tutoring.
Great tutor : )
We started the search for tutoring at the last minute, when I had a deadline for my college application to the military academy. Our tutor Brian showed up to our house and gave us so much information that we later found helpful regarding the SAT and ACT. Brian showed me everything I needed to know about doing well on the math, as well as boosting my confidence and allaying my fears of failure. We found Victory Step indispensable and totally recommend them to anyone looking for quality tutoring that produces tangible, measurable results on the standardized tests.
Best tutor we've ever had!! sandeep is the best tutor my kids have ever had. we've tried a few different tutors for my kids grades 5, 7, and 11. sandeep helps all of them excellently. he prepares each one of my kids for their classes & exams according to their needs. my 5th grade daughter was struggling in writing and math. sandeep works with her. she loves english and math now. same with my son. our 11th grader scored well in his PSAT thanks to sandeep and he is now getting ready to take his SAT. sandeep also helps him with chemistry and precalculus. he is the best fit for our kids.
I’ve taken my SATs a couple of times and although I am not a bad student, I just felt that I could have done better, I knew it inside, but just could not find where it was. I got the Getting Into The Ivys tutoring program and worked with a Chelsea tutor. What I really like about my tutor is that she’s a qualified teacher and is professional and knows how to actually teach concepts properly. I really did not want to take any chances. Going to university is very important to me and my family. Susan my tutor developed a special study plan just for me, which helped me focus on my key weaknesses, without feeling de-motivated, in-fact I was so enthused by her, I actually looked forward to all my sessions. She is a brilliant tutor and I am so very grateful. I was able to increase my composite core by 100. I am very pleased.
Deborah has been tutoring both of my grandchildren and both have excelled in school with her help. The kids (8 & 10) love working with her. Their progess has been amazing. I would highly recommend Deborah as we continue to use her on a weekly basis. It has been a pleasure watching the growth she has initiated with our kiddos. Thank you Deborah
Daughter was very hesitant about getting tutoring help, but Michael is pretty laid back and is really helping her understand her geometry homework. Very good at getting her to figure it out with just some prompts if going the wrong direction. Highly recommend him.
I personally enjoy Christine Poquet's style of teaching/tutoring. I like how she doesn't consistently translate, which forces me to think in French. I also appreciate the fact that she's French and she's always inviting us to repeat sentences so we can improve our pronounciation of the French language.
Michael was my tutor for a five week course in statistics. He was very professional and beyond committed to my success!! I would highly recommend him!!
She is knowledgeable about what her students need to know. They are her first priority. Patience is important to her.
He has been a pleasure to work with. My daughter is really benefiting from his help. I have also added my son to his tutoring schedule.
Unlike my previous tutors, Micheal knew in extensive detail every subject I asked him for help in, and he made difficult concepts understandable to me with ease. I cannot reccomend him enough
To review now is a bit early. We have only done the initial consultation and tutoring will start next week. I was impressed with Monique who came to my house to visit with my daughter and I. Looking forward to a successful relationship.
Sheira is very patient and really thorough in her initial assessment. I am confident she will be a great tutor for my son.
Cornelius is a fun, energetic and engaging tutor. My boys were captivated by his mere presence and interest in the subject at hand. When he showed up their demeanor was transformed from bored and disinterested. Cornelius was able to introduce and explain mathematical optics in a way that challenged my sons as well as enhanced their learning experience. I would highly recommend Cornelius as a tutor.
Excellent math tutor on HS accelerated math.
