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.
Let me start out by saying that I am NOT a "math person." I've always struggled in all my math classes (Except geometry that involved shapes and vocabulary. Go-figure.) This semester I had to take Calculus for Social Management at George Washington University. I soon realized that I was falling behind, and not understanding the professor or the concepts. I was beyond lucky to find Nema. We spoke on the phone for only 30 minutes the night before our first session- and he proved how much he could help me in such a short time. Nema is an incredible professor. He helped me quickly find my strengths and weaknesses- and is incredibly patient. We reviewed each concept- and the ones I did not understand he was able to explain multiple different ways, and effortlessly provide different example problems. I went from not understanding 90% of the class and having to constantly refer to my notes; to knowing each rule and types of problems inside and out. We worked together many hours to prepare for my midterm- and after many sessions with Nema, that was the first time I had ever taken a math test without freezing up on a problem. I knew exactly what to do without hesitation. Nema is an amazing professor, has a great sense of humor, and clearly loves what he does and it shows!
This company has totally helped my daughter prepare for the HSPT test. Michael has been wonderful to work with and so have his teachers. I can't thank them enough. We didn't even have to leave the home as everything is set up remotely which worked well for us. Worth all 5 stars!!
Mr. Ahmed is helping me with my math placement test for college. He really takes time to teach you step by step! He's very patient and very helpful! I will rock this math placement in May! Thank you Mr. Ahmed
Paul tutored me for two months for the SAT and ACT. He is very patient and helped me understand tricky math concepts from a new perspective. He knows all the tips/tricks/strategies for raising someone's test scores and he gives great practice resources. When I started the standardized testing process I felt very overwhelmed but Paul helped me raise my confidence in my test taking abilities and in turn, my scores improved dramatically.
Alex helped my daughter prepare for the SAT when she was a junior. He was great! My daughter is a good student, but has severe test anxiety, especially about whether she will finish on time. Alex taught her test taking strategies to help her answer as many questions as possible and had a calm demeanor that worked wonders for her. She ended up exceeding our goal for her score! Thanks :)
I found Novastar Prep to be very responsive and professional. The tutors placed with my son after an extensive concussion he incurred were very easy to work with, communicate with, and very knowledgeable in each subject area. Novastar will always be my tutor company of choice if needed in the future.
My son is preparing for a test to enter an apprenticeship program. He needed to brush up on various math problems. She patiently worked on each problem with him giving him helpful tips along the way. She has a very flexible schedule and works in a nice quiet environment.
Club Z is a terrific program. We loved the in home tutoring. That saved so much time for us and we used the program for two of our daughters. We did a summer reading program and SAT prep course. The tutors were highly qualified and each of them worked really well with our girls. The tutors were also very flexible and that was so appreciated with a busy household full of schedule changes. Our students are better prepared for the upcoming challenges. We highly recommend Club Z.
Andrew Sun To whomever this concerns, Before I signed up with this tutoring program, I was not very good academically. In fact, I was the worst in the toolshed. Knowing that I have no time to lose and my bleak future is upon me, I did what many people think it's best; To join the military. I didn't know what to expect of the navy to be honest, so I was unaware of the test you need to take called the asvab. My heart sank a little. I began searching on the Internet, looking for a tutor (especially on math) until I found out about Theo. Theo is the CEO for student circle and unlike other tutors; he is the only one that stood out. He is understanding, ambitious, and kind, but most importantly he can relate to you, creating a special bond which prompts you to succeed. So I explained to him my situation and he set me up with another tutor by the name of Xin. Right off the bat both of us got along and he helped me through two grueling months. There were times when I wanted to give up, but he was there for me. The funny thing is, he is going through an exam as well during my time with him, so he is the hardest working tutor I have ever came across. I swear, these two do actually care about me because when I took the asvab, I scored high enough to achieve some of the most coveted jobs the navy has to offer! These two will forever be part of my family. Student circle has the best sessions as well as memories. Thank you. Andrew
If you have a hard time in math, hire her. She writes things out, and does lots and lots of practice. She explains things thoroughly and in a simple way, and even makes up practice tests for you to prepare for the real test. I worked with her on Calculus and earned an A because of it. She's patient, friendly, and very encouraging. Don't hesitate because you won't regret it.
Excellent ACT/SAT tutor I was referred Dr. Reetika by another mom from my sons class. She truly helped shape his career. She helped my son to prepare both for ACT and SAT to identify which works better for him. In the end my son took both the exams and did well on them. There were times that I had difficulty keeping him accountable but Reetika had a good balance of being a tutor and sounding board for my advice. I recommend Reetika to anyone needing help in test prep or honors classes of their kid
MrNeil tutored me for a few months to increase my SAT Math score. I did the test twice and my reading and writing scores didn’t change, but my math score increased by more than 100 points. I would definitely recommend MrNeil.
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
Jessica and her team at Modern Muse Education are sincere, intelligent, and professional. Their new Gaithersburg facility is wonderful and provides students with a comfortable place to get test help (she even provides snacks!). Jessica and her team are not only extremely patient and educated on the test themselves, but also connect the testing content to public and private school curriculums, customizing a student’s test prep course based on their current grade level and course schedule. The course provides students with everything they need to succeed on the test, as well as how to evaluate their test scores to identify what they need to improve on future tests. I 100% reccomend Modern Muse Education for all students in need of SAT/ACT prep!
Very helpful. She helped me review my basic math for my accuplacer test. I got the score I needed!
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.
Mr. Glass tutored my son this year in Algebra 2. My Son was struggling majorly. His grade at the end of the first quarter was extremely low. He began working with Mr. Glass twice a week shortly after the first quarter. This helped tremendously!! My son has a B now and is about to graduate High School. Mr. Glass was very patient and extremely effective in helping him with homework. This helped tremendously with his quiz and tests. Mr.Glass was always on time and if we needed extra support before an exam he was glad to add extra time. I was very satisfied with him as my sons tutor !! He will be working with my younger son soon too!
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.

My work stands out because I was once one of the students who thought math was an undecipherable mess until I learned how easy it can if it was just explained in an unintimidating way. I can identify with students who have trouble in math, which makes me patient and understanding with my students.
