Excellent teacher, she makes learning math easier to comprehend. I'm learning and understanding math much better now since I've started working with her.
Amazing!! She helped me get into the college of my dreams. Also, she tutored me to achieve getting a perfect ACT score on my reading section. If someone is looking for testing or application assistance, I would absolutely recommend My College Advisor.
Jorge is understanding and capable and provide a safe environment in which to learn and make mistakes. I highly recommend him!
My daughter and I had a great experience with 9Star Tutoring! Ms. Daniels is very professional and works very well with my daughter. She quickly assessed her educational needs and has helped her get on the right track with her math and reading comprehension. I was also very impressed because the study skills Ms. Daniels shared with her have helped her tremendously! I highly recommend 9Star Tutoring!
Ms. Erin is a great Reading and Math Tutor!
Academic Connections has truly been a god send for our daughter and the key to her math success in both Algebra II and Pre calculus. Megan took such care to make sure we had the perfect tutor. We receive a written update after each tutoring session. This really helps us to know exactly where how she is doing currently. Our daughter has gone from a "D" student to an "A"! Thank you Megan and Tammy!
Corinne was my history and philosophy tutor and helped me mostly with writing and reading comprehension. She is one of the best that I have ever met. She is patient and I’ve learned a lot from her in the last five months that she has tutored me. I am an older student who has gone back to school in order to receive my Bachelor’s Degree, which I will be receiving this September, but without Miss Corinne's help I would not have made it and this is the honest truth. She doesn’t make a person feel bad if you’re not sure of anything, she just works with you until she knows that you understand the assignment in order to pass and go forward with your next subject and until she is comfortable knowing that you now understand. You can’t asked for a better tutor than Corinne. Also, she was there to help me through some very tough times while in school, such as information that I wasn’t sure of and was afraid that I would not pass these classes if it wasn’t for Corinne’s help. As I said earlier in my letter if you decide that you ever need a tutor for your son or daughter or even yourself if you are going back to college, please chose Miss Corinne, because I highly recommend her service. She is one of the best and I am so grateful to have had the chance of meeting her especially in the time of need when I did. As they say, when God sends special people in our lives, he sends them for a reason and I was definitely sent an “Angel”.
My older daughter struggled in kindergarten with learning sight words and was losing confidence in herself as her classmates were passing her by. So, midway through the school year I started sending her to see Rachelle. By the end of the school year, my daughter completed all the sight word list that were assigned and was confidently reading more complex words and sentences. She started reading at her grade level by the next school year and has been a passionate independent reader ever since. After seeing the wonderful results, I preemptively enrolled my younger daughter to have reading lessons with Rachelle before kindergarten started. When the first day of school began, she was easily reading small books and eager for more challenging assignments. Rachelle's reading program works! My only regret is not using her sooner.
Wendy was amazing! She taught me how to read patterns and told me not to be afraid to improvise if needed to make it work. It was just what I needed. My pattern turned out great and I feel great about my edits to it. I would defiantly hire her again!
Ms. Bowman is an excellent tutor who is committed to assisting children achieve their full potential, both academically and socially. As a former Co-Coordinator of the Saturday Tutoring Program sponsored by the Upsilon Tau Omega Chapter of Alpha Kappa Alpha Sorority, Incorporated, I worked with Ms. Bowen for nearly 8 years. During this time, I personally observed her ability to work with elementary school students. She is highly qualified to teach math, reading comprehension and other subjects using novel and easy-to-learn methods that appeal to students at all grade levels. Her personal style and ability to relate to and communicate effectively with students allows her to establish a productive learning relationship with her students. Students are never talked down to nor does she become impatient with them. If someone does not grasp a concept, she simply begins again or tries another approach. Patient and observant, Ms. Bowman engages her students and seeks to get to know them on an individual basis. She encourages them to share their academic achievements as well as their challenges and defeats. By encouraging this type of interpersonal interaction, she is able to foster an environment where students are willing to work with each other, share their talents, and become more confident in their abilities. Ms. Bowman provides intellectually stimulating assignments that not only build upon the students existing knowledge base but also challenges them to develop the best approach for solving any academic issues they face. Her instruction is focused and results in a deepening of students study skills, confidence in asking for and receiving help, and academic mastery. As a direct result of her efforts, students who are failing or performing below grade level should experience marked improvement as evidenced by improved grades and performance on state assessment tests. Because of her teaching ability and commitment and dedication to the academic success of children, I highly recommend Ms. Bowman as a tutor. I believe that anyone engaging her services will find that they made the right decision. Tonya R. McCullough
We enlisted a tutor from Club Z! for our 8 year old son. The tutor was well matched with our son to help him in reading and reading comprehension. The tutor was punctual and polite. We will use Club Z! again if the need arises.
She really has helped with me critical thinking and reading comprehension. Very great and passionate tutor!!!
I worked with Sylvia for two years when she was the learning specialist at the Washington International School and I was a tutor who provided supplemental instruction for students in English. I found Sylvia to be very attentive and concerned about her students both in and outside of the classroom. Sylvia regularly kept me informed about what was going on in their classes and at home so I could tailor my lessons accordingly. For example, a student I was tutoring in ESL experienced a death in the family, and Sylvia and I worked together to create a lesson that allowed the young girl to write about her family member and express her sadness. Sylvia very much had an open door policy as well, and was always encouraging students to come speak to her if they needed guidance. I would recommend Sylvia as a highly knowledgeable and supportive resource to any student.
Ms. Monique is very knowledgeable and patient. She teaches Language Arts in a way that my son can grasp and retain. She was able to assess his weaknesses in reading comprehension and tailored the tutoring to strengthen those areas. She even has mnemonics that she created to help him remember reading strategies. As the new school year begins, she will tutor my son in writing. I am confident that she will introduce tools that will enable my son to be the best writer he can be.
Kathy has been tutoring my daughter in Math for over two years My daughter has dyslexia and math is just as difficult as reading for her. Kathy recognizes my daughter's strengths and builds on them, she understand her weaknesses and boosts her confidence. Kathy knows how to keep the focus of a child and make the learning process both fun and challenging. She teaches through multi-sensory learning, acknowledging that what may work for one child does not necessarily work for another. She uses games, pictures, stories, rhymes and experience to help a child learn and understand a lesson, not just learn it by rote. My daughter enjoys and looks forward to working with Kathy each week.
Helaine Matz is a great instructor and I would highly recommend her for learning Spanish, no matter your level. I decided to brush up on my Spanish due to trips that were planned in Spanish-speaking countries. Helaine really helped me with my vocabulary, significantly improved my reading comprehension, and gave me the confidence to be able to speak the language while I was traveling. Her encouraging attitude and energy made learning fun and stress-free, which was important to me, as I was usually coming from a long day of work. I believe any student would benefit from instructions from Helaine. -Yelena Trepetin, Attorney

Hannah is very friendly and it's easy to understand her English which is great since I am learning English as a second language. She was prepared for our first lesson. I am excited for the next lesson! Thank you so much! Viviani.
Katherine is a very professional English teacher with extensive experience in pronunciation and accent reduction. Her customized classes offered me good insights and strategies on how to change my accent to sound more like a native speaker. It has been a good experience for me and will be beneficial to both my personal and professional development.
I met with Alex on a regular basis for over a year so he could help me write academic English in the context of my Masters, as well as improve my spoken English - which is almost fluent without being native. He also proof read my papers and thesis. I thought his skills in teaching to be outstanding. Very encouraging and patient, he took these lessons very seriously, as classes could be postponed but never cancelled, which ensured a much needed regularity. His way of teaching is pleasant and never monotonous; he manages to convey his enthusiasm very well; I felt encouraged to sustain my efforts, week by week, especially as my progress was visible. I would strongly recommend Alex for anyone willing to learn or improve their language skills - either in French of in English, as his French was as good as mine (a native speaker).
Michelle volunteers with my organization by tutoring an elementary school student in reading. She is always on time, easy to communicate with, delivers lessons with accuracy, and has built a strong relationship with her student. I would especially recommend her for elementary age children -- she is patient and great at gentle redirection.
