Here's what our clients are saying
I've been absolutely delighted with your French language tutor, Caroline. It's been fun and I've learned a lot. I'll go to France and won't ask "Do you speak English?" She has absolutely forbidden it! Also, we've been reading Le Petit Nicolas, which is a real hoot.
I had my first tutoring session with Eric today. He is an awesome tutor. I learned to ask myself questions while reading the passages. He also taught me new ways to build up my vocabulary and strategies in the English session. Thanks for assigning him as my tutor. I am so pleased and honored to be one of his students.
I just wanted to let you know my son completed his ACT tutoring with Eric. It was everything we expected. Eric was outstanding. We will recommend him, along with Varsity Tutors, to our friends.
I highly recommend Eric as a tutor for either quantitative or verbal test preparation. The instruction Eric provided was exactly what I needed to be successful on the GRE. His focused method enabled me to raise my quantitative score thirteen points from the practice exam I took just before our sessions started. Furthermore, although we focused on math at my request, the 10-15 minutes of tips Eric gave for the verbal section allowed me to achieve a 169 (99th percentile) on the verbal section. All this in just twelve hours of training. Eric is always professional, focused and amiable. He presents challenging problems, and uses a variety of methods to get you to understand the material. Thank you Eric, for all your help!
We are happy to report that our son passed his Algebra comprehensive exam. He went from a 42% to a 73%. We are very happy with the results. It was a short amount of time [six tutoring sessions] to cover an entire year of Algebra, and we are very happy with the help Eric, our tutor, was able to give our son.
Just wanted to let you know that our son received a '5' on his examinations for both the AP Calc BC and AB sub scores. Onward to the next chapter. Thanks so much for your help in making this happen!
Eric, our tutor, was fabulous! He was very good at getting the concepts across to our daughter. If she needs help next year I will definitely go with your tutors again!
Fernando, our tutor, has been wonderful and so helpful in seeing our daughter over some rough spots in her classes. He is really good at connecting with her, even when she had been resistant to accepting help.
I want to thank you for your personal attention and support, you have been a great to work with. I also want to thank Morgana, our tutor, for being so attentive and flexible with our daughter's schedule. Morgana was a great fit and a wonderful mentor for our daughter. We are very grateful.
I want to thank you for everything you have done this year for my son. Your tutor, Peter, has been phenomenal. Absolutely phenomenal! He has been an extraordinary mentor and tutor for my son, and words can not express how grateful I am.
My son received his ACT test scores and did quite well. The composite was a 31, up from 28. I think the tutoring sessions were very well organized. Both of my sons were impressed with our tutor's expertise. Thank you!!
We found out today that our son passed his AIMS Math re-take. We are very pleased with the news and wanted you to know how much we appreciate your services. Nash, our tutor, made a significant connection with our son and gave him the tools and confidence to succeed. We can’t thank Nash enough and would highly recommend him to other students struggling with math.
I am very happy with the quality of tutoring our daughter received from Vineet, our tutor. He is always prepared. We are passing on his name, in association with Varsity Tutors, to her friends who are juniors. Her final SAT total (best scores) was 2130, very evenly distributed across all three subjects.
I wanted to let you know that I was extremely pleased with your tutoring services. Professor Vernon, my tutor, was absolutely fabulous to work with. If I had to take another math class, I have no doubt I would have him teach me.
Our son ended his first semester with a 94%! I'm very pleased, to say the least. I think the grade is reflective of what he learned in his sessions with Omar [our tutor]. Thank you again for pairing Omar with our son - you were spot on, it's a great match!
Just wanted to send you a quick reply to let you know how absolutely thrilled we are with Jan's expertise and help with the Algebra for our son! They both also worked really well together! Our son has since been getting all A+'s, and today we find out how he did on his last two tests, including the final - as it's his last day of summer school! This has spelled a breakthrough for him in math - now he sees that he can do it, has a taste of it, and I can now really see himself using a formula of practicing his work in the future! Of course, this also has been a great boost in self-confidence going forward - he knows he can do it! You made it very easy for us to get some help, and quickly found us the perfect tutor, Jan, to do that!
Julia, our tutor, helped our son with Latin during 2-3 months. His Latin grades improved immediately. He went from a 'D' to a 'B' after only two session with Julia. We will soon find out our son's final grade for Latin, but we are expecting that he will pass his Latin Class. Julia was very nice, always on time, very professional, very capable and effective. Thank you for recommending her to us.
I would like to express my heartfelt thanks for the effort that you made in pulling all of the pieces together for my son. Your commitment to getting him through the challenge of passing his Geometry exam and the effort and personal interest exhibited by his tutor, Nash, have been so appreciated that it is difficult to find the words to adequately express my gratitude. My son had many challenges with his Geometry course, and Nash was patient, engaging, encouraging, and committed to teaching and ensuring that he was grasping what was being taught. Clearly, without Nash's help my son would not be reveling in the success of passing a course filled with enormous challenges. Your company had come highly recommended and I can see that your leadership and Nash's dedication have warranted that recommendation. Please accept my appreciation for a job well-done; you are both examples of the professional qualities that I had hoped to find in our search for a tutor.
Xin, our tutor, has been wonderful. He has a way of explaining math that makes it easy to understand and very interesting. He also provided detailed examples of pre-calc equations which our son found most useful. I found the tutor to be professional and a pleasure and would recommend Xin to any parents with children needing help with pre-calc.
Thank goodness for you and your company. I always recommend your company to others.
We absolutely LOVE our tutor, Julia! She is a natural teacher: consistent, encouraging, supportive, and tactfully direct. She is doing a great job with our boys.
Thanks for the great service, you really made every step of the process very easy for us. I will definitely be recommending your company to friends!
Thank you so much for your help, and for leading your tutor to our daughter. He is not only a remarkable tutor, he was an excellent teacher for our student. Maybe more importantly, our daughter is now armed with the confidence that math is not a hopeless cause, and she really can conquer it. That is a great success story!
Thanks to your company for having such wonderful tutors with high standards and moral character.
Caroline [our tutor] has been a saint - Wish she could move in with us!
I am really pleased with our tutor's work; I think he did an excellent job of motivating and keeping our son interested in the subject matter!
Your tutor, Hanna, helped our daughter go from a 'D' to a high 'B' in her geometry class. I highly recommend Varsity Tutors. The tutoring is very professional and effective. We will be using your services again.
Our son scored a 91 on his final in Physics, which had not occured before the tutoring.
I am so happy! I got a 'B'! Thank you so much for all you did to make this possible by picking Matthew [the tutor], I knew you said how great he was, and he absolutely was! Thank you!
We loved [your tutor] Jessica. She was delightful, knowledgeable and a great role model for Hannah. As Hannah was going through the tutoring, she kept telling me she didn't know if this was really helping her because it was something else she had to fit into her busy schedule. Well, she took the PSAT last week and when she got home her statement was "you know, I think that tutoring really did help me." Yay!! Being a pushy mom paid off. I thank you and I thank Jessica. I've already referred Varsity Tutors to a few other people.
Terrel [the tutor] had been to our house just twice before we received our first 'positive change' e-mail from one of our son's teachers, stating that he was showing more interest in the classroom and was leading the class with his positive attitude. The e-mails continue, and he seems much less frustrated with his school work. It is wonderful that he has Terrel as a role model and teacher - he is completely comfortable with him and their time together is always time well spent. We look forward to working with Varsity Tutors into the future!
Thank you, thank you, Varsity Tutors. We started your services and have felt it was money well spent. Our daughter improved her SAT score by a whopping 200 points. The tutor you paired her up with was perfect. They communicated well with each other which made the learning process a success. The tutor was kind and flexible with her busy schedule. Thanks again, we will be calling soon to schedule tutoring for our next child.
