My son had essentially a month to prepare for his second round of SAT's. His scores in English and writing had to increase or he would have limited possibility of getting into the universities he desired. Within essentially a month, Jim was able to connect with my son and train him to think differently about his approach to the SAT test. I was amazed to see the conversion in my son's attitude and his self confidence soared. Regardless of what the final scores come out to be, Jim's unique style and patience left a marked impression on my son.

"Competent, Engaging Tutor in History, English and Math"
I am an encourager by nature, so being a tutor allows me to do what I do best. I have experience teaching in public and private schools, in addition to my extensive tutoring background; but I enjoy being able to give individual instruction that is tailored to the specific needs, personality, and learning style of the student. I am a parent myself and I have also worked with youth groups for many years, so there is a comfort level with teens ---I don't find them strange, intimidating, or una... ... More

Barrie-John is wonderful. My son has a much better understanding of how to take the reading and writing portion of the SAT and valuable little hints to catch mistakes and comprehend the questions.
I am glad that he was our first choice for tutors. We definitely recommend him for SAT Prep.

Curt was very good. He was easy to get along with and showed tremendous knowledge of the subject he was tutoring. He found ways to explain difficult problems simply and helped me out a lot. I would recommend him to anyone.
Mary has done a great job with our son this summer. On those days my son didn't want to go and see her, she was able to get him involved and on the right track to where they had a great lesson.
I like how she had him write down new vocabulary words in the back of his notebook and would explain to him what they mean. We have tried to use some of those new words every day so he will remember them. Thanks Mary!
I am bummed we don't live closer to the facility though, so I could make arrangements to have our son get tutoring from her during the school year. We would use her again next summer if she was available.
It has been a great pleasure meeting Dr. Asif. He has helped me improve my scores in nursing school. He is very patient, and always answers all my questions. He uses a lot of visual aids which helped me to grasp the context a lot better. He encourages you and has good manners. He is a proficient medical doctor that any beginning student can look up to. Dr. Asif is not only knowledgeable in his field, but also passionately teaches to others. He wants truly to help others and I am very thankful for all the help I got. I would honestly recommend Dr. Mohammed to all students who want to know and thus improve their grades.
