Eileen is wonderful. She goes above and beyond bringing our son quizzes she has put together on her own time, to help him get all the information he may require for his test. She is helping him get organized as well as teaching him some great study habits for in class and home, and teaching him how to best put in writing the information he knows. She has helped him with multiple subjects and makes sure he is understanding what they are reviewing or studying. She has also showed him some great ways to do research in a fun way, and is in tune to how he best learns.

"Science and Math Tutor"
I am a parent with a background in medicine, dentistry and biology which gives me a wealth of knowledge I am ready to share with your student. I've helped kids learn by volunteering and tutoring from 3rd grade to 12th. The best way to teach is to listen first, to understand where the student is coming from, what he or she thinks and what the goals of both parent and child are. I have experience tutoring chemistry, SAT prep, biology, math through algebra 2 and nursing, basic reading and ma... ... More
I needed a 26 in the speaking part of Toefl. Those who have taken Toefl know how hard it is to get a 26. Janet was very helpful. She is a very experienced person. She always answered my e-mails and questions immediately. She provided me lots of practice material and would go through my answers before the day of class. She is one of the most responsible and dedicated teachers I have ever had. I always felt that she was trying her best to help me. She is very knowledgeable in her field. As a result of her hard work, I got 27 in the speaking and 27 in the writing part of Toefl. I strongly recommend her as your tutor if you want to pass your tests with a wonderful grade.

My daughter has been working with Judy for several weeks now. Though my daughter is a third year high school German student, she is missing some very important basics and especially struggles with grammar. Judy has worked with her patiently and methodically, and I've seen great progress. Judy is clearly skilled at the German language, skilled at tutoring and very good at establishing rapport with her student. As a parent, I really appreciate her thorough written synopsis of every lesson. My daughter enjoys her lessons with Judy, and she is feeling much more confident in class. After only two weeks of lessons she had improved a full letter grade at the end of the term. She is also looking forward much more to her trip to Germany this summer and feeling that she may actually be able to speak and understand some German while she is there!

"Tutor w/MA for Spanish, ESL/English, German, QuickBooks, Computers"
For more than two years, I served as the Director of the Language Learning and Resource Center at a small private college, and during that time, I taught numerous students how to use a computer who previously didn't know how to use a computer. Some of these students came from other cultures and didn't have access to a computer previously. In addition, some of my experience has also come from tutoring seniors who did not previously learn how to use a computer.
I'm comfortable teaching the new terminology/commands at the speed that is easiest for students to learn. In addition, I believe i ... More

Anne is an exceptional Math tutor for those seeking to improve their scores on the SAT. We chose her because of other recommendations and she exceeded our expectations! My daughter was only scoring 640-670 on Math before, and was sure she could get the scores up all on her own. After the very first session, my daughter realized Anne was exactly what she needed because she was able to really direct her on what areas she needed to work on. And, she had invaluable test and strategy tips that gave my daughter a real confidence boost. We don't have her results back yet, but after taking the test this weekend, my daughter feels she "nailed" it! Thanks Anne! We'll let you know how it turns out when the scores come out in a few weeks!
