I am being tutored in Spanish from Julissa. My sessions have been educational and fun. Julissa builds the curriculum around the students strengths. Although my tutoring session is 1 hour, she spends her own time at home preparing for my lessons. Julissa is professional and punctual and I am extremely proud to have her as my tutor.
I am a senior at American University and first contacted Bill to help me prep for the math portion of the GRE. I experienced a jump of over 10 points on my math portion after working with Bill! Bill is an awesome tutor. He is flexible and quick to respond to changes in my busy schedule. He is also high energy and makes the process exciting! It was apparent during our first lesson that Bill really has a passion for teaching mathematics.
Nema was a kind and extremely knowledgeable tutor. He helped to break down complex concepts for my college-level trigonometry/pre-calculus courses and was able to make the lessons easier to understand. He also has a unique ability to connect nebulous theories to real-world scenarios, which really helps for someone who is a hands-on learner, like myself. After working with him, I received high marks in the class, and went on to complete a degree in international affairs and global health. I now work in international development finance. More than 4 years later, I still remember his humor, skill, humility, patience and mentorship. I would highly recommend him to anyone at any level looking to develop a better understanding and appreciation for math and statistics.
My son is a junior in high school and we desperately needed a tutor to help him in AP Calculus. Michael has been a huge help with matching us up with a tutor. Michael listens and fully understands the needs of a student and family struggling in a subject. He took the time and effort to select a tutor that best fit our son's needs and personality. He scheduled an initial "get to know you" session with my son so that they could learn more about my son and to understand his current study and classroom habits, etc. The tutor follows up after each session with feedback on what was covered, what needs more attention and how things are going. So far, so good...and I, as a parent, feel like we are in great hands. I appreciate Michael's attentiveness to our situation. I look forward to seeing my son succeed in this class! I highly recommend A+ Club for Student Success.
My son's tutor has worked with him for more than a year transitioning from elementary school to middle school. The tutor showed great flexibility in subject areas and was able to help in virtually any school subject including English, science, math, world studies, and French. My son's improvement and added self confidence has been fantastic!
I would recommend Reetika to anyone looking to improve their GMAT score. I had 6 sessions with Reetika and was able to improve my GMAT score by 90 points. She tailored her lessons specifically to fit my skills and I couldn’t be happier with my results. The skills and the test taking strategies she taught me were invaluable!
My roommate and I contacted Julia to teach us basic Russian for our travels to Ukraine and Moldova this summer. To date, Julia has provided us with proper instruction, lesson plans, and homework. She has become our mentor and very reliable resource as we prepare for our journey. Julia is very professional and can present her material on all levels, which I can attest to since she teaches the two of us at the same time. She is a kind and genuine person who is always upbeat. It is with great privilege to recommend Julias services to anyone who is looking to explore or further their understanding of the Russian language.
My daughter struggled with math this school year and with the professional tutoring help she received she passed with flying colors. Her tutors were always on time and maintained quality workmanship which is definitely a plus in my book.
I engaged Ms. Hoyle as an editor for my manuscript and was delighted with her sensitivity to the nuances of th English language. I have known her as a teacher of disadvantaged youth in the DC Public School system. She was well respected by her students for her substantive lesson plans and her committed desire to meet the needs of each student. I highly recommend Ms. Hoyle as a skilled and dedicated teacher, and as one who is gifted in the use of language.
Mr. Glass connects well with middle school students. He is patient, funny and has many different ways of teaching the math concepts so that the students truly grasp the information. Our child was not motivated in math before Mr. Glass taught her/tutored her, and now she is very enthusiastic about it. We highly recommend him!
Megan with Academic Connections has truly helped my daughter gain the confidence she needed in math to become an honor roll student. I will definitely be working with Megan again in the future! Will give you a call for summer school tutoring! took such care to make sure we had the perfect tutor.
Corinne was great as a tutor. She approached the subject matter we worked on together in a creative and easy-to-follow manner and made each session fun. I've never had much confidence in my writing skills but after working with Corinne I feel totally different about the quality of my work. Because of her guidance I no longer dread writing assignments. Corinne's methods and techniques are assets I'll be able to use in all subject matters and moving forward in school (and life!). I can't recommend her enough!
It was nice meeting Mrs. Wendy. She arrived on time and was very friendly. My son enjoyed the class and we plan to continue several lessons more until my son can be at the level he needs to be in.
Judy is a wonderful tutor. She has been working with my son for about 2 years now, and he is to the point where he asks to see her when he is having problems with his math home work! When tackling challenging concepts Judy has taken the time to utilize whatever resources she has available to her including utilizing online lessons to review, and reinforce the subject she is working on with him to make sure he has a better grasp of what it is he is doing before he leaves. She is very patient with him, and is willing to work with my very hectic schedule. There is not enough that I can say about her commitment to my son when they work together, I can only say thank you for everything she does for us.
I met Lauren while she worked as an elementary school teacher at my children's parochial school in southern California. She is an excellent teacher in the classroom, providing sound instruction on the school's curriculum, as well as positive feedback to her students. My middle daughter struggled in elementary school. After having Lauren as her teacher, I hired her to tutor my daughter's during the years of 5th-7th grade. My daughter struggled in several areas including: math, reading comprehension, study skills and writing. Lauren met with my daughter in our home on a weekly basis. She used the curriculum that the parochial school provided, as well as, she incorporated different learning modalities, which assisted my daughter in the understanding the various concepts. Today, my daughter is a senior at a university back east, majoring in kinesiology and will graduate in May 2016. I believe Lauren gave my daughter the skills and the confidence she needed to be successful in school. Thank you again Lauren!!! T.S Garden Grove, CA
Nancy is always punctual and prepared for teaching different lessons. She is a great listener and instructor since she is able to connect with students effectively when teaching various lessons. She uses different methods of teaching which helps students learn since they are responsive to the different techniques implemented. She is great colleague who is always helpful to others and maintains her priority on her students. I think that Nancy is always able to overcome any challenges that students face as she is always helpful and has had previous experience teaching students of all levels. I think that she has great work quality, that she is professional and she is always a pleasure to work with.
My daughter was recently tutored by Sam for a college pre-cal/trig summer school course. The pace was fast and by the time we called Sam, she was in the fifth of her sixth week. By week 5 her grades were taking a downward spiral as the material was getting more complex. She was teetering on the precipice with a C-. After one intense week of working with Sam she finished with a B. He worked magic. He was patient and and an excellent teacher .I initially worried that he would be "too qualified" to tutor the course, but he was able to explain math to my rising sophomore college daughter, who has always struggled with the subject. He was the best math tutor my daughter has ever had. And a very nice man.
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.
All students that we tutor eventually excels in the respective disiplines they are being tutored which is the reason why they all come back year after year for our services. The parents all agree that enrolling their children to our faciliy are the best decisions they make for their child. The tuition they pay are worth every penny for what their child get for our services.

I am very passionate about teaching but I'm also versatile. Though I like to use a certain teaching method, I will definitely make any needed adjustment that is compatible to the student's learning mode.
