"Inspirational and Friendly Math, Science, and English Tutor"
As a tutor, our job is normally secondary to the teacher's. The teacher's job is to cover a certain amount of material in a given amount of time, making sure all students do their best. The tutor's job is to go over this material with usually just one student and further elaborate on this material. Sometimes, tutors realize that a particular student may be incredibly intelligent but may not organize notes well or know exactly what to material to focus on.

I can't say enough about John. He's just remarkable. He's pulled our son's grades up, our son really likes him (very important) and he even gave me a session so i could understand what my son is doing enough to help him, too.

Paulette demonstrated the true ability of a teacher. She was able to work with my son and help him understand difficult polynomial concepts. She was very patient and encouraging throughout the session. I would highly recommend her services.

My son is struggling in precalculus and I needed a tutor fast. Neemisha responded with in hours and scheduled a tutoring session. She explained the definition and was able to show my son how to apply it to the problem. My son's confidence immediately increased. I highly recommend Neemisha as a math tutor.

I cannot speak highly enough of Sergey, as he helped me make sense of my inadequate computer science education. In just a little over a month I went from vaguely understanding python to building my own site, loving the language and programming well. He was always available and would find additional materials for me after each lesson. I wish I had known about Sergey and WyzAnt years ago!

"Effective English, ESL/ESOL, and TOEFL Tutor"

An ESL student's primary native language is one other than English and usually seeks additional tutelage to further understand other material that utilizes the English language. Depending on what each student's native language is, tutoring ESL may have varied paces. Students whose native tongue is a romance language will often have the easiest time in picking up English due to the languages' similarities, wh ... More
