Linda C.

Linda is a fantastic tutor. She is patient, kind and quietly spoken, yet challenging and hardworking at the same time. She has been tutoring my 9 year old with her 4th grade Math. My daughter was finding Math very difficult and overwhelming and within just a few sessions with Linda she is already more confident and feeling like she is much more capable. She even said 'that was fun Mum!' after a lesson- which I never thought I would hear from her after a Math class!! Linda communicates well with her, correcting and helping her when she is finding it hard, and praising and encouraging her when she does well and is improving. She has given her great little tips and techniques to help her in class too. I would highly recommend her!

"Energetic and Engaging Spanish Tutor"

Over the past two years I have worked in two different Special Education classrooms, working with students facing a variety of learning challenges, including ADD and ADHD. I have directly supported these students by encouraging different learning and study techniques, helping them to understand what works best for them and providing them with multiple possible approaches to any given task or assignment. In addition, I have provided a plethora of outside resources for these students to access which can help them work with their learning challenges and allow them to thrive in their academic p ...

Jeffrey M.

I hired Jeffrey to tutor my daughter in Physics and I feel fortunate to have found him. I find Jeffrey to be personable, patient, soft-spoken (in a good way) and really wants my daughter to "get it." Though we have only had 3 sessions so far, my daughter tells me that she likes him (and I think it is very important that the tutee likes the tutor!), that she feels very comfortable saying she still wasn't understanding the problem and more than once, and that he is very patient. Jeffrey goes over the physics problem(s) several times showing my daughter how to do it and then making sure she can illustrate the same work/process in a similar problem. My daughter tells me that the repetition of her doing the problem with him has helped her to be more confident in the subject because she is understanding it better by doing it. Sometimes I wish we had an hour and a half with him, which can likely be scheduled, because that little bit of extra time would perhaps make for an even more thorough lesson. After every lesson, Jeffrey emails me a paragraph summary of what they went though with some helpful reminders for my daughter from the lesson. I forward them all to her so she can keep them and refer back to them. After our last session, Jeffrey also emailed us an additional physics problem for her to work on, with explanations and rationale and his openness for her tom call him to discuss the problem on the phone or to save the discussion for the next session. I would highly recommend Jeffrey if your child needs a tutor in physics or another area he specializes in; I think you will find that he truly is all that I describe above. As a side note, he is on-time and responds to emails quickly.

"Effective Ph.D. Tutor of Mathematics and Physics"

Elementary math is a fabulous opportunity to lay down a firm foundation for more advanced mathematics. Indeed, much of my time teaching advanced math is remedial work concerning concepts that students should have gotten in elementary math, such as how to do arithmetic with fractions, which operations permit the distributive property (and which don't!), etc. ...

Hi -- Rebecca helped our daughter Kate with PreCal. Kate's teacher didn't really teach the subject so she needed someone to help fill in the many gaps. Rebecca was always prepared in advance for the lessons, patient, and very good at explaining the various concepts and formulas. Kate has had several other tutors in PreCal, I would say if you need a PreCal tutor, contact Rebecca!

"Professor of Physics; 25+ Yrs Teaching Collegiate/Pre-Collegiate"

After parents, I believe teachers have the greatest influence to shape the lives and the future of their students. Education is empowerment and my goal is to have my students believe and achieve this lifelong empowerment. I often share the story of my humble beginnings in rural India with students when I’d have to walk several miles a day to go to the nearest school and how, that early education opened my eyes to the world in ways I could never have imagined, The commitment to learn led me to... ...

We had Michael as my son's math tutor for almost 6 months now. My son is in his sophomore year in high school. He has been struggling with math and his math grade has been gradually declined. After few sessions with Michael, my son’s math grade started to come back up. As the school end, he had a grade A on math. Michael is always on time, never miss a session. We are very happy with him and will have him again after summer.
