My son found the tutoring helpful!
We've hired tutors for different subjects over the years, so we understand that competency in the subject matter is only part of a tutor's value. Salwa brings not only a great deal of competency; she brings an ability to lighten my daughter's anxiety. Salwa recognizes my daughter's learning style and works with her in such a way that my daughter feels confident about moving forward. My daughter looks forward to her tutoring sessions with Salwa (nothing short of a miracle), and has already seen an improvement in her class.
Mathilde is an outstanding tutor! Perfect for beginners or advanced students. She is extremely nice and makes the lessons fun and practical. My French class actually ended, but I still go to tutoring because I enjoy learning French.
I am so grateful that I happened to come across Kimberly Canty and KJS Tutoring Services when I had reached a low point in my GRE preparation. Until I worked with Kimberly I had been using self-study prep services for a year and I had taken the GRE once, receiving a dismal quantitative score of 155. After working with Kimberly I received a quant score of 163. I am giving Kimberly five stars for the following reasons: - extremely reasonable rates ($40 per hour for GRE Math prep), plus she was able to provide me a new copy of the Official Guide to the Revised GRE free of charge - Sessions are held via Skype, which worked perfectly with my schedule, plus the sessions did not lose anything qualitatively; I was able to view her blackboard via the camera, plus we used online practice tests to run through timed drills together - Kimberly not only provides a foundation in the basics, but also reveals the subtle tricks and tips that help you identify and solve the more advanced problems more efficiently - She identifies your weak points and targets them during sessions and through homework assignments - She is incredibly encouraging and instills the confidence you need on test day (a critical point as my low confidence was definitely affecting my performance) Again, highly recommend her services!
You aren't going to find a better math tutor anywhere. Arbor is the best.
I love that we don't have to leave our house; the tutor comes to our house. We have a regular schedule, but still have flexibility to change thing.
We needed a Geometry Tutor for our 15 year old son George. This was not a class I could help him tackle. We were introduced to John Savens and he was a life saver. John Savens was able to talk with George at his level, kept him engaged, had the patience to explain the practices, created additional work for if the school didn't provide home work, and was always punctual and professional. John Saves absolutely provides the value added service we required to bring George up to the point he understood the Geometric concepts and raised his grade to a B. We're continuing to us John Sven through the summer to help bring George back up to speed with his Algebra work and be well prepared for Algebra 2 in his Junior year. Thank you for John Savens!! Sincerely, Lynne M. Trott
I'm a private tutor with several years of practice as a professional tutor available for hire and have extensive experience tutoring K-12 and college students in many levels of math. I tutor on the following subjects: math (basic math, Algebra I and II, geometry, trigonometry, Precalculus, Calculus I, II , and III, differential equations, and linear algebra); physics, chemistry, English, English as a second language, and U.S. history. As for my qualifications, I have an Associate of Science in Engineering (3.914 GPA), employed as a tutor by Reynolds Community College, professionally trained, has periodic professional development, and placed in the top fifth percentile of Henrico County SAT scores. I also tutor on test preparation -- SAT, PSAT, AP, ACT, SOL, GED, college placement tests, etc. I also offer assistance with computer programs, such as Microsoft Office, AutoCAD, MATLAB, and others. I'm available to make house calls or meet at a location convenient for you.
I offer a wide array of tutoring services in any subject at school. SAT tutoring is available as well. My student at MLWGS scored a perfect 1600 on math/reading on the SAT.
I work with children and families experiencing troubles with schools and problems with learning and behaviors. I have an ADA ramp for disabled individuals. I am very good at getting your children what they deserve in schools, especially making connections with school professionals. I am disabled and have mane family members whom I have helped with homework and adjusting in school/life despite their disabilities or obstacles.
I have a passion for working with students to help them reach their full potential and attain academic goals. I bring a lot of experience (17 plus years) and creativity to the table. I get to know each student, taking into account their unique strengths and interests when planning lessons and determining the best instructional approach. My role as an educator is to teach concepts and skills, but I think it is equally important to inspire drive and self-confidence in the kids I tutor. I believe that learning can be fun and I strive to make tutoring sessions interesting and engaging so that my students not only improve, but they want to learn and do their best!
I can tutor preschool to adults in reading, writing and ESL. I have experience working with adults and children from all over the world.

I'm a recent VCU graduate. In the future, I intend to obtain my teaching certification for secondary English education. In the meantime, my schedule is open and flexibile to use my English degree to tutor or my years of experience with animals as a volunteer, lifelong pet owner, and a short time PetSmart bather to help out anyone who needs what I can offer.
I am a Math specialist who works in the public-school system. My goal is to help students be successful as mathematicians.
We offer elementary and high school Spanish tutoring. Up to intermediate college level tutoring is also available.
For 18 years, I have been educating children. Whether in the classroom or in a one-on-one tutoring situation, I deliver in-depth teaching on all subjects to K-8.
Students have told me that they appreciate the way I explain things and they are able to understand topics more clearly than they have with prior teachers. I believe this comes from my approach to help them see where the math comes from...rather than being satisfied with simply plugging numbers into a formula. I try to help them connect multiple ideas tighter, which helps them understand the big picture and see that mathematics is a language where all the parts work together very smoothly.
