Success Stories

  • "My tutor was laid back and made everything easy to understand. He was able to help me understand all the concepts I needed to know for Chemistry and Calculus in a short amount of time. It also made it convenient that our sessions were flexible so that I could work on different assignments or classes during the same session. I even recommended him to my friend, who needed help with Physics. I also really liked that he could teach me whatever I didn’t understand in class. I would definitely recommend these tutors to anyone looking for immediate help in math and science!"

    – Blake B., Student

  • "Our tutor has been a tremendous help to our son in Chemistry by reviewing and going through practice problems. He explains solutions of problems clearly and succinctly. Therefore, our son can work on solving the problems quickly. We are very pleased with our tutor’s patience and calm demeanor and we will be sure to call him whenever our son needs help! "

    – Kevin M., Parent

  • "I was very happy with the level of service that these tutors provided! I have had both my son and daughter work with other tutors and the results just weren’t the same. These tutors were very professional and were always available, even on the weekends, to help my kids with any subjects, including math, science, English, history, and French. Both my son and daughter also liked that they were friendly, relatable, and extremely knowledgeable about whatever subject they were teaching. If you want dependable tutors who get great results, then these tutors are exactly what you’re looking for."

    – Ezabel B., Parent

  • "My tutors didn’t just help me understand my homework, but also taught me important things I needed to know for each subject. They helped me with my Chemistry, Algebra II, French, English, and History classes by going through every part of my study guides before a test and making sure that I understood all of the material. They also made sure I was prepared for the most difficult questions on the test. I always felt comfortable asking even the smallest question, which helped make me feel confident before class!"

    – Tatiana B., Student

  • "Thank you again for working with Jacquelyn this past year. She was able to earn great grades in both Chemistry and Algebra II. The online interface allowed her to maintain her athletic training schedule and still fit in the tutoring sessions. By the way, she has been signed by a Big 10 school with both an athletic and academic scholarship!"

    – Lisa M., Parent

  • "Our son attended an urban high school short on motivated teachers. During the Precalculus class in his junior year, it became obvious to all that the previous year’s Algebra II teacher had failed them miserably. That is when we sought out a tutor’s services. Our tutor had to teach an entire year of Algebra II along side Precalculus. The end result is that our son received an A first semester and a B second semester."

    – Stephen C., Parent

  • "Our son’s senior year, he had a teacher with a very low pass rate on the AP Physics exam. Our tutor came to the rescue. It was through our tutor that our son learned to attack problems from a different perspective. He received an A and then a B in the class–all due to our tutor’s skill at communicating the subject."

    – Mary C., Parent

  • "Honors Chemistry was a problem in that the teacher taught nothing – literally. His AP Chemistry students had a 5% pass rate. Our tutor worked with our son and literally taught him Chemistry from scratch. Our son received one of very few A’s both semesters – all due to his work with his tutor."

    – Stephen C., Parent

  • "Our English tutor assisted us with our son’s college essays. His weakness was the ability to write with depth and cohesion. Our tutor was patient, kind and successful. Our son was accepted to most of the schools to which he applied: Berkeley, Davis, Irvine, Santa Cruz, Santa Clara, GW, Trinity and Union. Thanks in no small part to our tutor, our son is happily attending UC Berkeley!"

    – Mary C., Parent
