We hired Laura when my daughter had a D- in the second quarter of Algebra II. Laura was able to help my daughter bring her grade up to a C+ for the quarter, which may not seem like a lot, but considering the number of quizzes and tests that couldn't be impacted by her tutoring, this was quite substantial indeed. I expect the rest of the year to see above Cs, now that my daughter has a great tutor to help her.

Every once in a while my daughter says school is not her thing. I know staying on task and accepting feedback also are not necessarily her thing. But Ms. Mary is her thing. We had several lessons in August (and I wish we had begun earlier in the summer) and not once did my daughter complain or resist going to tutoring. Ms Mary was able to keep her engaged and learning. She has a nice positive style that draws my daughter in rather than being resistant. ms Mary selects materials individual to her interests. She adds in new concepts outside of her written material as they arise. For example my daughter referred to something incorrectly -off the top of her head ms Mary explained the proper usage and gave her a concrete tool to use. Even if my daughter does not remember each and every rule taught I know if she hears these concepts in school next year she will feel prepared.

Alex was fabulous. After completing my MBA 15 years ago, I decided to pursue a PhD in Business Management. I needed to rewrite the GMAT (17 years since I last wrote it!). I had forgotten far more than I remembered. After a couple of frustrating months of trying to teach myself, I started working with Alex. He was so much help. I wrote the GMAT and got a GREAT score! Thank you Alex.
