Loren always provides sincere, energetic, bright and enthusiastic instruction to help me brush-up my very limited level of English. To help me deepen my interest, he frequently creatively devises different activities, from the blackboard to games, which always help me to learn more.

She is professional and good teacher. she taught me English flexibly so I could learn the topics I wanted to learn in each lesson. I learned pronunciation, grammar and vocabularies by using some articles and topics which I am interested in. I especially wanted to learn business English, so she proofread my resume and cover letter, and also practiced for job interviews. This experience was valuable for me.

When I was struggling with my math on GRE testing, Allan helped me in the most efficient and generous way. I cannot thank him enough. For each problem I was facing, he explained each step in the most precise and clear manner. He was also really good at providing me useful ways to remember formulas and tips, which I got to memorize for the actual testing. Thank you so much!

My five year old son has gone from being a non-reader to a reader of level one books, like Bob Books, in two and a half months of phonogram instruction with Brigid. And he is spelling at a second grade level. In short, he has learned why words are spelled the way they are. He can write legibly all of the fifty seven phonograms that he has been taught. And even more astounding is that he can write words that he hears himself or that others say by using the word analysis tools that he has developed. For example, I watched him write a list of the names of people he knows with tremendous accuracy. And he is excited about doing it too. Through his phonogram instruction I too have re-learned basic grammar and spelling. I employ phonograms frequently when trying to decide how to pronounce words that are new to me or the old favorites that I've always been unsure of. Truthfully, Brigid's phonogram instruction has helped our whole family; even our little toddler apes his brother and recites them. Brigid has far exceeded my expectations. Before asking for her help I was resigned to the fate that my son would not learn grammar as it had once been taught. So I am incredibly thankful to find a master in my own backyard who not only loves teaching children but knows that they are capable of learning more than they are routinely given.

Our tutor is awesome and meets us in person. The company is organized, reasonably priced, and flexible. There's no long-term commitment and we were matched with a tutor who could assist with multiple subjects. Student Circle is outstanding.

I'm so glad I reached out to Guide on the Side for help with my two teens! I'll admit up front that I'm a rather "picky" mom--I have high expectations and I'm careful about who I allow my kids to spend time with. Ms. Karmiller did not disappoint!  All of our interactions were professional and so, so supportive. Ms. Karmiller is a compassionate, patient teacher, Her developmental and educational expertise is evident. After spending a little time with each child, she seemed to have an intuitive feel for how to best tackle each child's unique needs.  She clearly has a knack for developing supportive and instructional relationships with children. Both of my children felt cared for and respected. Their time with her was "fun" and did not seem like work, even though they got a lot done. One teen was struggling with a high school AP class, and over a period of several months, Ms. Karmiller provided direct tutoring as well as instruction on specific study strategies tailored to my child's learning style. That child raised her class grade by two letter grades! It is such a joy to see her feeling more independent and confident now. I think she's even got the courage to try other AP classes in the future.  My other child needed assistance during the transition between high school and college. Ms. Karmiller provided life skills training (guidance on financial budgeting and developing routines) and job search assistance (resume building, job applications, and networking/interview coaching). These are things I'd normally try to help my child with myself, but as is typical of this age, the child wanted to be independent and do these things by himself. It was a great comfort to me as a parent to know that he had another trusted, knowledgeable adult to turn to with questions. He got to feel independent, and I got the security of knowing my child was adapting well during the transition. In addition to meeting with him as scheduled, Ms. Karmiller went above and beyond, checking in with him regularly to inquire about his progress. She also updated me so I stayed "in the loop." I highly recommend Guide on the Side to other parents who want to help their children with school or emerging adult skills.

Tate has been very patient and exceptional at help our son get through French II. His ability to speak French and teach French is excellent. Our son was failing when we began and disliked his French class. After a few tutoring session he was able to enjoy the class again and took interest in his studies. Tate is flexible with his schedule and would highly recommend him.

About

Most tutoring companies look at a student's grade level, and tutor according to where they should be in that grade. We look at students on an individual basis, seeing what areas they have already mastered, and what basic, foundational skills in which they may have gaps. This allows us to create a plan of progress that is specifically designed for your child-- not just for any kid who happens to be the same age.
