Here's what our clients are saying
We had an amazing tutor, Luke, who helped my son with his college admission application. Luke was very professional in that he made my son write his own essays and then asked very pertinent questions which helped him re-write his essay himself. He would say something like "Are you sure this is how you want to end your essay? Is that really the final impression you want to leave?" and then my son would scrutinize it and come to Luke's conclusion and improve it. Luke was A+ and I would recommend him and Varsity Tutors to anyone who needs a great English tutor or essay critic! By the way, my son did get into UCLA and we know that Varsity Tutors and Luke helped to make that a reality!
We got the scores for our daughter last week, and I cannot express how HAPPY AND DELIGHTED we are! She raised her ISEE score 21 points, and went from a 69 to a 90! She nearly doubled her math score!! Gavin was wonderful! He worked very well with our daughter, was diligent, fun, and really helped her feel confident that she was going to do well. I'm not sure how he taught her, or the techniques he used, but I do know she never complained about the work. He assigned her homework each week, which was key. We really appreciate what he did for our daughter. It made a world of difference.
Emily is just FANTASTIC! She is just what my son needed, and we appreciate her flexibility.
My son had a lot of confidence going into the exam this past weekend and felt good about the results! Thanks!
Varsity Tutors was the third company we tried for coaching for ACT/SAT testing. We had tried one on one tutoring as well as special weekend intensity classes. Varsity Tutors was by far the best. They were efficient, organized accurate and fair regarding pricing and refunds. But my children and I both felt that the tutors they were given were exceptional. They were pleasant and skilled at imparting information and making it a fun learning experience. Both my son and daughter told me that they had learned a lot more in a shorter time from Derek and Darby who were just wonderful. We are very happy to have found Varsity and highly recommend this service.
Everything went really well. He liked the tutor and said he really learned a lot. Thank you all for everything. I would highly recommend Varsity Tutors to others.
We are almost to the end of the summer break and we had a wonderful time with Denise. She is amazing and she has done so much for our kids educationally. I thought it was a pleasure to work with her and we learned so much from her in depth knowledge of the early education system.
The MCAT prep I did with Hannah really helped me. I went into the test feeling much more confident about every section. I would tell any MCAT student to work with Hannah!
Our daughter’s experience with our tutor has been excellent. He is a very good match for her, and in her words, "He understands the way I think." I think he's terrific as well...organized, upbeat, encouraging, confident, punctual, and of course, very bright.
My daughter scored a 710 in math – a 50 point jump! So we were very pleased about that. She got a 640 in Critical Reading, up 20 points from her previous score, so that was good as well. She is now at 1350 between the first 2 scores, vs. 1280, and her Super Score is 2050, so that’s great. Thanks so much! Perhaps she’s in “Merit Scholarship” territory now!
Karen is a wonderful tutor. Our daughter has learned much from her and feels more confident in her algebra skills.
Alex is a good tutor, explains well and asks questions to ensure understanding really took place. He also encouraged our son to spend independent time working on the subject.
Jonathan, our tutor, has been very helpful to our daughter. So far she is getting an 'A' in Geometry.
Alex, our tutor, is wonderful. My son's grades are perfect and it is largely due to Alex and his math tutoring.
Our son is very happy with our tutor's method of tutoring. Our tutor is also very flexible with his schedule, which I really appreciate.
Tiffany, our tutor, is doing a great job with our daugther. Tiffany is professional but friendly so our daughter feels at ease and ready to work when she arrives.
Our son finished pretty good thanks to all of your efforts. We really appreciated your help and commitment to our son. He got an 80 on his Trig final and he was able to keep his 'A' in the class. He got an 'A' in Photography so his total GPA was GREAT! He is in his first day of a new semester so we hope to get some solid study skills together to stay on top of his work.
The experience we had from the first phone call until the first meeting with our wonderful tutor, Angana, was perfect. Everyone was very clear on the process of hiring the tutor service and the charges associated with it. They found the perfect match for our daughter and even called to make sure we were happy. Our tutor is here promptly and calls the day before to confirm. She has yet to be stumped on any of our child's questions and she understands the material and is able to break it down so my daughter can grasp it. This has been money and time well spent.
I'd like to let you know that Stacy was the best tutor we have ever had! She had a special way of helping my daughter to feel comfortable with her teaching, and therefore was able to keep her attention longer than any other tutor or teacher in her past.
I just want to take a quick minute to thank everyone connected with your team. We had such a positive experience with your program and tutors! My daughter will be graduating from college in one more semester, but I will most certainly refer your company to ANYONE needing superb, capable and patient help in the future.
I wanted to let you know that our son achieved his goals on the June ACT! His English score went from a 21 to a 30, and his Reading score from 19 to 29. He is very pleased, and this also means that he will receive more scholarship money from his college!
