Theo was very prompt and well-worded in our communications, and set me up with a tutor in my area quickly. I'm looking forward to more of my Japanese language lessons!
Al is a wonderful tutor! He knowledgeable and personable. My daughter is usually very shy and has been taking online high school classes. Math has been difficult to do this way but, through her tutoring lessons with Al, she's regaining her confidence. He is very patient and does an excellent job at explaining the lessons. I couldn't recommend him enough to anyone needing additional Algebra help!
Will really helped my 4th grade son get back on track with math when he began struggling last semester. He ended the school year strong, with assignments provided by Will to keep him on track through the summer. Definitely recommend!
Over the past six years, Alan has tutored both of my boys in math and science. Alan has been extremely helpful in supporting the instruction from the school. We have found Alan to be pleasant to work with and flexible in scheduling times to meet. Alan knows the material well, and can break it down so that the student can learn the concepts. We have made several referrals to him since he has been exceptional in his work with our boys.
I found Louisa's tutoring services very helpful and insightful. I'm a Ph.D.student in psychology writing on challenging topics and Louisa was able to provide me sound, constructive feedback on my writing. Some simple exercises during our session provided me tools and new ways to approach the writing in creative ways. I think Louisa has a good ability to evaluate a writer's ability, and then apply the appropriate techniques and lessons to bring the writer along. She did this for me.
Scott has been very helpful in tutoring me with French. He's fluent, knowledgeable, professional, and quick to answer any question I have. His sessions also include excellent learning and lesson review tips.
Salma is a wonderful tutor who always encourages me to be confident of my abilities and gives proper lessons for my college level essay.
Very personable and understanding of my toddler. Provided age appropriate learning tools for his lessons.
Alexander has been tutoring my 4th grade son and my 6th grade son once a week since September 2013. He has worked with them on their writing -- including grammar, different styles or writing and reading comprehension. The work varies. Alexander is always prepared with a lesson plan but is flexible enough to incorporate the boys' school work and interests. So, they might edit a paper for school one week, work on word choice and parts of speech another week and then write a screen play the third week. Alexander is an exceptional tutor. He relates to the boys but he is also smart enough and firm enough to keep them interested and motivated for the full hour. So the boys are happy to have him as a tutor and they are learning a lot. Alexander is very easy to work with. He is a real professional. He is always on time. He never cancels at the last minute and he communicates far in advance on the very rare occasions that he has a conflict. I wholeheartedly recommend Alexander if you are looking for an intelligent and dedicated writing tutor.
Lynn Wilton tutored a child in my elementary classroom for four months using basic, intensive phonics. She was excellent. This struggling 9-year-old had low self-esteem and extreme difficulty reading. After this time with Lynn, she was a different child. She read aloud with ease. She spoke and wrote with confidence. This tutoring literally changed her life. Lynn is a strong as well as a kind tutor. She works well with children and adults and I highly recommend her. She was punctual and professional, considerate and awesome.
Monica was flexible in scheduling our first lesson, she arrived on time (thank you!), and she was amazing with my 5 yr. old daughter who can't wait for her to come back next week!
Piyush is absolutely wonderful and is great with kids! My son looks forward to going to him and get his English lessons. He also does his homework without any fuss. From everything I can see it is a great environment and learning center for kids!!
Our Experience with our English Tutor, Theodore has been outstanding. Theodore tutors twice a week for us and comes each and every week prepared with a well thought out lesson to meet our specific learning needs. I would recommend Theodore for his English teaching skills for sure, just so long as its not on Tuesday or Thursday evenings between 6 and 7pm. :) Brady
Michelle is a wonderful teacher. My daughter has been taking piano lessons from Minchelle for a year now. She adores Michelle for the patient, inspiring, and encouraging teacher that she is. I would highly recommend Michelle to anyone seeking out piano instruction for their child.
My 4 years old daughter enjoyed her lessons a lot. Tesesa was always well prepared the teaching materials. She kept a very good relationship with the students and the parents, willing to listen and communicate. She is a teacher full of patience and compassion, and her ways of teaching children are very helpful and easy to understand. She is a wonderful teacher! I highly recommend for Young Readers tutoring service!
We had Bruce Winter as the English tutor for our homeschooling group for about two years. He had to teach 3 different groups every day, at kindergarten and elementary level. He was always well prepared in his attitude as well as the teaching materials. He kept a very good relationship with the students and the parents, willing to listen and communicate. Being very patient and articulative, he was able to explain ideas and concepts clearly. The children enjoyed his lessons a lot. I highly recommend him for his tutoring service!
Ethan is a great tutor to my 8th grade son. He prepared my son for ACT and SAT tests. Thanks to Ethan, my son got good scores on these tests and was accepted by talented searches like TiP Duke, CTY John Hopkins and Robinson UW. Ethan also provided general consulting about school classes that he recommends to take, interesting magazines and articles. My son started to read Wired and other magazines after Ethan motivated him. Also, Ethan is very responsive and flexible with schedule. His unique benefit that he comes to your place, so you don't need to drive your kiddo anywhere. I highly recommend Ethan for tutoring for SAT/ACT tests, high school prep, math.
I highly recommend Mark Brown for tutoring. We were referred to Mark Brown when my daughter was a junior in high school. He helped my daughter to become an organized writer, helped her prepare for her SAT'S and I am proud to say she was accepted to all 4 of the universities she applied to. My daughter currently attends the UW and I credit Mark in not only helping her boost her testing skills but her academic confidence as well.
My son Dash was last in his class. After Heather's attentive tutoring & encouragement, Dash's skills increased and he received passing grades. We didn't think he would graduate High School, but because of Heather's instruction Dash's progress was immediately evident! Thank you Heather for your kind help! I recommend Heather whole-heartedly.
Jillian is a great tutor, she helped me in many ways.I am currently a high school Mandarin student, take a Mandarin class in school. I wanted to find someone to help me get ahead in my class, so I found Jillian. Jillian always plans her lessons ahead and her lessons was very fun and easy to understand.I really feel comfortable around her and I can really learn a lot with her help
Alison is very energetic and has a lot of patience. She teaches English lessons very creatively. Each student has different skill levels, but even at the highest level I have never gotten bored. I like that she is able to teach beginners and advanced students at the same time. Her lessons are really fun. She knows our weakness right away so she can best help us. She is very enthusiastic about her job. She is the most excellent tutor I have ever met in my life. Even though the lessons were early in the morning, I was always so excited for them that I never missed one. I have more confidence speaking English after I took lessons from her.
