We hired a writing tutor for our 10 year old son (5th grader). Leisl is a very smart, witty, charming, and intelligent tutor who our son adores. He used to be so lazy before Leisl started tutoring him, now he does seem excited about writing.
Louisa has been a great tutor for me and I very much enjoyed the time editing my application essays with her. As a non-native speaker, I did not have any communication problems with her. She is really patient and thoughtful: She would read through my writing and make sure to grasp my main arguments points before we get started to make any editings. In this way, I felt confident that my essays would convey my original points. Also, I learned a lot on how to improve my essays to become more concise, coherent and interesting to read. Besides editing the my grammer mistakes, she takes time to correct word choice, sentence structure and the whole paragraph strucure. She really helped me on getting my ideas across the board. I would recommend her to other non-native speaker students who wants to improve their writing skills in English. You would spend a good time working with her.
Just started. She gave me a book to write in and a little homework too. Which is what I wanted. We met at the Marysville library. I think I can learn a lot
I have known Lynn Wilton for 25 years. She tutored me in English as a second language, and then in English as well while I was a student at Edmonds Community College (1997-1999). I have found her to be a very enthusiastic, creative, dedicated and patient tutor with excellent skills in improving my speaking, reading and writing. I received a very good GPA of 3.94 in my English course. Lynn Wilton is a excellent English tutor, and I strongly recommend her to anyone who needs help in English.
Melissa was kind and professional. She helped my daughter complete her algebra homework and she even had her do extra review problems, too. We like Melissa and are hiring her again!
Grant is helping my daughter with SAT tutoring. So far, so good. He has gotten her more engaged in studying for the SAT. He has an excellent grasp on all aspects of the material (math, reading, writing and essay) and strategies, and he has been able to convey the information effectively.
Patricia is amazing. She helped Aniruddh rampup quickly on English and helped him get better grades. We moved from India when Aniruddh was 7. English was not his primary language, that made him struggle at school. Patricia came to the rescue and helped Aniruddh gradually pick the language, both written and spoken. Patricia has tremendous experience working with all kinds of children, and she adapts her curriculum according to each Student. In teaching experience helps. In addition to a great teacher, she is also a wonderful person and awesome baker. She is very punctual, polite and helpful. I learned a few baking tips from her on the side when she was teaching. My kids still miss Patricia. Thanks for ask the help.
Anjana is highly professional expert in her profession and she found my mistakes so fast and correct me. She has great knowledge in writing and reading. Anjana is a great teacher.
I strongly recommend Theo if someone is looking for a math tutor. Theo tutored my daughter during the summer. She failed Algebra and had to take the class in the summer. Theo was able to explain the concepts and teach my daughter how to solve the Algebra problems. After just 2 tutoring sessions my daughter had a better understanding of the Algebra concepts. My daughter received an 87 as her grade for Algebra 1. I strongly recommend Theo without any reservations. Theo is patient and it's a bittersweet departure hoping Theo returns back to DC.
Our time with Lenore has been nothing short of impressive. She has become a part of our family and has been instrumental in the success and growth of our 6th grader. Our child struggles with reading/writing, Lenore has a teaching style that is supportive, motivating and has inspired our child improve in both areas significantly. The dedication Lenore carries and her passion for teaching is undeniable - it's contagious and a delight to our little family. Our child always looks forward to their sessions and speaks with excitement about the fun projects they are working on. The creative projects Lenore structures for students is one that encourages the children to find their own desire for participation. The kindness and support Lenore provides to the children is one that fosters the dedication to improve through fun. Keep up the good work, Lenore!
My daughter, Sophia needed reading tutoring. Leigh helped her a lot! Sophia was very upset when we had to stop. Leigh is a wonderful teacher.
Teresa tutored my children when they were three and four years old. The environment felt very safe and loving. She has the gift and knows how to connect with children. My son went to kindergarten reading fluently from working with her. From there he went into the gifted program in the public school. Jonathan's early reading skills set him up for success and has impacted his life. He is now 24 and is doing very well.
My daughter has always struggled with writing (she finds it tedious, and, as a result, difficult). When I hired Tom as her writing tutor, my hope was that he would help her make it through a particularly writing-heavy academic year. Tom not only allowed my daughter to meet this goal, but took my daughter so far beyond it that I still have a hard time believing it. Originally, I chose him because he looks good on paper: he is a published author, has an MFA from Columbia University, and years of teaching experience. It only took a handful of sessions to see the other qualities that make him so unique. He is not only committed to seeing his students do well (in the traditional sense), but, more importantly, he is committed to cultivating students' investment in, and appreciation for, the written word. My daughter has been empowered, and she has begun to see writing as a craft, as something pleasurable, and as something that will be imperative in all future life arenas. She has, in other words, come to see writing as her favorite subject. And, she sees Tom as one of the more significant influences on her intellectual life. The magic he works goes beyond writing, only. Because of my daughter's devotion to Tom as a teacher, we also hired him to help her with geometry. Although most tutors are able to do *either* math and science, *or* the more humanistic disciplines, it would appear that this is not the case with Tom. In fact, I can't think of a subject in which he would *not* be an effective tutor! It probably goes without saying at this point: our family recommends Tom very, very highly.
I hired Martina to tutor my 12 year old son when he was struggling with writing essays last year. She was able to help him improve his writing abilities as well as his language arts grade. On top of that, she was very friendly and professional.
Chris was hired to be a writing tutor for our son. What we got was that, plus so so much more! As a former high school teacher, Chris understands and relates incredibly well with high schoolers. He helped our son to organize himself better (refine his executive function skills), and write in a more organized, purposeful and effective way. Our son's grades and test scores showed the impact of Chris' attention, and we are so happy we made the connection. You would be fortunate to connect your child to Chris. He is that rare individual who really cares, and makes a significant positive impact in your child's (and your family's) life.
I have been published by major publishers and my books have been translated into seven languages. I have edited full length novels, and Rutgers University published my China memoir as written, with no need for edits or proofreading because I did all of that successfully myself. I taught English at a major university in China for three years, taught nurses at a major teaching hospital, taught classes of children, and tutored children and adults. I have edited full length novels, and my own website. Proofreading is a given.

I currently work full-time as a research analyst with Deloitte. I also tutor high schoolers and volunteer with creative writing workshops with the non-profit 826 Seattle (now the Bureau of Fearless Ideas). In a previous life, I was a reporter for the Chicago Tribune and ABC. I have extensive experience in English Language Arts and love working with kids and believe I would be a strong candidate as a tutor.
