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.
Best math and English tutors we've ever come across.
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.
My daughter resists any private tutoring but with Piyush, she enjoys going to the class. According to her Piyush makes learning a fun activity. Very much recommend his services.
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.
Minh's basically a total genius. Gave me a great intro into OChem and Physics, actually we covered all of the OChem course, the only difference is now I listen to what the teacher ACTUALLY wants to go over, but whatever he wants to throw at me, we already did. Physics was a little easier, but the problems I just straight up was like "I don't get it", but now I look at them and I'm like "I can actually solve this!"
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.
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!
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.
Have worked with Barbara on many writing projects over the past 20 years. She's an excellent writer, editor, and teacher! Very detailed, observant, and nuanced.
Good price point, professional, and kind. Our grandson is responding well to his method of teaching.
