Here's what our clients are saying
Things are going extremely well. Will has done an excellent job of carefully crafting our crash course curriculum and has been able to incorporate a lot of fun games and songs which help keep the kids engaged and will help them to retain the information in the future. Will always has an upbeat attitude and has been flexible while the kids have taken turns getting sick the past couple of weeks. He has supplemented our class instruction with an appropriate amount of "homework" (although we don't always get it done) and has recommended many other ways of incorporating Spanish into our daily lives by listening to songs and watching movies that are in Spanish in addition to online resources and reading material. Will has helped build a strong foundation that our family will be able to build on as we continue on with our Spanish education at home and abroad. I want to thank you for matching Will with our family. We are all fortunate to have been his students. Based on Will's performance and your pairing him with us, I will gladly refer other families to Varsity Tutors and I am looking forward to working with your company again.
I just wanted to express how happy we were with Sona. Her approach, personality, and methods were a perfect fit for our son. The lessons were both creative and instructional without sacrificing the "fun" element, which is so important during these sessions. She incorporated creative writing, presentations, various educational games, and other techniques that our son really responded to. I am confident he made solid, applicable progress this summer through her instruction that will support his academic progress in the 3rd grade. Although I was at first skeptical, given the attention span of an 8-year-old, I think the two-hour sessions are the way to go - less rush and more time to warm-up in the beginning and wrap-up at the end. Our son is going to miss her and we hope to work with her in the future. Thanks for your help this summer.
I have nothing but positive feedback for the service you provide. My initial inquiries were responded to immediately, and a tutor was found and connected with my stepdaughter within 24 hours. Sona by far exceeds any expectations I could have hoped for in a math tutor. I just wanted someone that would be able to connect with our girl and help to refresh her 3rd grade math skills after a long summer before entering the 4th grade. Sona has done much more than that in a short time. She is a laid-back leader who began motivating our 9-year-old literally at the first meeting. My stepdaughter loves her and looks forward to math daily. One-hour sessions breeze by, and my stepdaughter is happy to practice in between sessions with no struggles - it's night and day! It's just the beginning of what I hope to be long friendship between Sona and my stepdaughter, and I could even see us calling on her once our 2-year-old is of school age and in need of extra help. Sona rocks!
Lynne was an amazing tutor and I'll miss her now that our sessions are over! She was really helpful in explaining difficult problems or challenging concepts and made sure I understood the material before moving on to a different topic. I thought it was impossible to improve on reading comprehension but she worked with me until that 'lightbulb' went off. I got the scores I needed on the GRE and I attribute them to Lynne's help!
Joe was very understanding of my son and worked very well with him. I feel that Joe is the reason that he received a B in Physics MS. My son had been failing science prior to the tutoring sessions. He struggled with the science fair project before Joe started tutoring with him and managed to get an A+. Joe taught him to look at the whole picture and to do his papers one step at a time, posing questions and then answering them with logic. We were very pleased with the quality of tutoring that Joe provided for our son. Thank you for all the good work.
On behalf of my son, I would like to thank Varsity for having arranged the tutoring for him with the right instructor—Nora. My son's SAT score the second time was greatly improved both in math and essay. It had to do much with Nora’s guidance. We are thankful for Nora’s quality tutoring.
My daughter and I have had such a wonderful experience working with Lynn over the past month. My daughter had to accelerate through her AP Calculus BC course, and finish by a very tight end date. We were matched with Lynn through Varsity Tutors. They could not have found a more perfect tutor for my daughter! My daughter needed to complete 50% of part A, and all of part B. Lynn immediately worked with both of us to understand the situation, along with assessing my daughter’s knowledge of the course. Lynn figured out a plan for my daughter, and mapped out the tutoring sessions and coursework they would implement. My daughter connected immediately with Lynn, and she was very impressed with her knowledge of AP Calculus BC. Because of Lynn’s high level of math experience, and her keen understanding of how to work with students, she and my daughter were able to achieve the goal. Lynn worked patiently and thoroughly in each session, always careful to manage the time efficiently. She spoke in a very clear manner, and covered each step of the learning in sequential order. Lynn made sure to stop and check for understanding continuously. One of the obstacles Lynn had to overcome was that my daughter’s former AP Calculus AB teacher had not taught the course fully. That meant there were some concepts from the AB course that my daughter had not mastered, and she had gaps in her overall foundation of calculus. Lynn worked with my daughter to teach her those concepts, and fill in the foundational gaps. Not only was my daughter able to complete the course within the short time period, she also earned an A! I greatly appreciate Lynn’s dedication to my daughter’s unique situation, and her overall success. Lynn was highly professional, communicated frequently with me, and kept me informed of all progress. Lynn really went above and beyond to ensure that my daughter would meet her goal. I would highly recommend Lynn for tutoring in higher level math.
Thank you very much for all your help. What a wonderful service you provide. We really appreciate your quick response and flexibility. Mark was great, friendly, and very professional, a good role model for my son. My son got a C in Algebra 2, so he met his goal and it was thanks to Varsity Tutors!
I just wanted to give some feedback about Savanna and my daughter working together. It really has been a great match. Savanna is doing exactly what my daughter needs: a good mix of straight teaching the material, having her work on problems, and confidence building. I couldn't be happier and my daughter earned a B on her last chemistry test. That was a huge confidence builder going into her final exam this Friday. Thanks for matching Savanna with us!
Stephen is great and we are very fortunate to have him as our son's tutor. He is very passionate about teaching and making sure that our son achieves his potential. He is proactive and always finding ways to make our son a better student. Our son has more confidence and is tackling writing which has been one of his weaknesses. Stephen is very patient and positive, and our son works well with him and likes Stephen a lot. Stephen is able to get him to focus on the task at hand and work hard at achieving his maximum potential. We have noticed a significant difference in our son's academics in the past few months since Stephen has started working with our family. In fact, our son's teacher has also noticed a significant difference in his school work in the past few months as well. We can see the difference and impact that Stephen has had on our son in the short amount of time that he has worked with our family. We have had a such a positive and great experience with Varsity Tutors and the tutors that we have worked with have all been amazing. We highly recommend Varsity Tutors to all of our friends and family, and we highly recommend Stephen as well. We would love to spread the message around to other parents on how Varsity Tutors and our tutor have changed our son's outlook on learning and have made him a better student all around and more confident.
Mioawen has gone above and beyond any tutor that my daughter has ever had! She has helped my daughter to increase her communication skills and eased her anxiety of public speaking in Mandarin. She arrives well prepared for the lesson as she always asks beforehand what my daughter is working on in class and what she wants to learn. She has also checked in with my daughter by email or phone to make sure that she is prepared for her exams. We have been very pleased with Miaowen and Varsity Tutors!
I am extremely impressed with Varsity Tutors. I called to inquire about finding a tutor to help my son prepare for his MCAT. I was extremely impressed by the person who answered the phone. Alicia is very knowledgeable, astute, and so very helpful and accommodating. Since my son was already scoring high on two of the three parts of the practice tests, he needed a tutor who was particularly good at helping with one section. Varsity Tutors scoured the country to find the best tutor for the job, who happened to reside in Texas (we are in New York). My son and this tutor conducted their sessions online and it worked out beautifully. My son thought the tutor was excellent and helped him in some key critical areas.
Hanna was an exceptional tutor and a truly lovely human being. My daughter loved working with her. With me, she was extremely professional, eager to help with anything I needed, and all in the most pleasing manner. First rate!
I appreciate how attentive Varsity Tutors has been this semester. I have referred several people to your services. I COULD NOT have passed this class without tutoring. I am teetering between an A and a B, depending on how well I do on my final exam. I went from a 77 on my first exam to a 95 and a 92 on the second and third, respectively. My three different types of homework averages are 89, 89, and 96, as well. I'm truly elated at how well I have done. I have two sessions scheduled with Tyler at this time. I will not be taking Calculus II, THANKFULLY! I will eventually be taking Matrices and Vectors, so if I need tutoring for that, I definitely know where to come for help. I can't say enough good things about your services.
Simin is wonderful! I can't say that loud enough. My daughter made the comment this morning on the way to school that for the first time, she was excited about going to chemistry class because she understood what she was doing. Thank you. AWESOME pick!
Our son was struggling with advanced math (college algebra and trigonometry) this year until he met his amazing tutor, Ben. Now, he is getting A's on his tests and is really understanding math. Ben has really taken the pressure off our family by his excellent tutoring of our son. Thank you.
Thank you so much for getting me a fantastic tutor on such short notice. Your organization and staff are phenomenal, I would definitely recommend it to a friend. This experience definitely did exceed my expectations. I never thought I would be able to get an A on anything in regards to math. Thanks again!
Thank you for tutoring our daughter for both the SSAT and ISEE exams. She has been accepted to her first choice of private schools. With Avery's help, she moved from the 30th percentile on her first test to the 63rd percentile on her last and that was definitely the difference. We would recommend Varsity Tutors to anyone looking to improve their scores, but the real benefit is that our daughter is much better with academic math and reading, and that is carrying over into her school work this year.
Michelle is great. I have so many issues with math, and some basic foundational issues that have haunted me my whole life in regards to math. She was able to help me with strengthening some of the weaknesses in my learning style. I would recommend Michelle to any other person who needs help like I do. I'm glad Varsity Tutors has such high caliber tutors who have a vast working knowledge of specific subjects like Calculus. Michelle was ultra early, and she even tried to stay later than she needed to. She is very thorough, and I had to make sure that I didn't encroach on her time. Michelle is great. Thank you, Varsity Tutors.
Everything is great – we love Heather. She’s been fantastic! Her teaching style is well suited to my daughter and I love hearing my daughter exclaim 'Oh! Now I get it!' I think your company provides a terrific service and we look forward to your assistance throughout our daughter’s educational journey!
Your program was well organized and it was great working with my tutor/mentor. He did an outstanding job in making sure I understood everything I needed weekly. Thank you for providing such a great individual to work with for the past several weeks, he made the program easier.
My grandson is doing very well in comparison to how he was before tutoring. He received an A+ on his science project and was selected to continue on to SARSEF. He also ended this quarter with an A in Physics (he had a D last quarter). He also raised his C to a B- in English Comp. We are very happy with Joe, without whom my grandson would not be passing. Joe works well with him. My grandson is the type of kid that wants to do homework as quickly and with as little work as possible. Joe has him re-read what he has written and then go back to rewrite with grammar that is more appropriate for his grade level. He makes my grandson expand on short abrupt sentences and explain his ideas. Joe is very professional and is well liked by us. Thank you for sending Joe to tutor my grandson.
Thank you for recommending Colin as my Statistics tutor. He has a lot of patience! And he knew about the TI-84L and was very good at explaining how to use it for Statistics. I recommend him for tutoring any age any time.
Our tutor is GREAT. My son is extremely happy with him and feels as if these sessions are totally worth his time. We feel the same. It seems like an excellent match.
I am happy to report that Jonny (our tutor) more than exceeded our expectations. My daughter's ACT score improved seven points. Both she and I were shocked with the impressive result. I am grateful to Varsity Tutors for listening to the type of tutor we felt would be best for my daughter and they clearly delivered with Jonny. Jonny was exactly the type of teacher that she responds to and her results proved to be true. We were expecting an increase of one point or two. Thanks to Varsity Tutors, Jonny, and my daughter's dedication and hard work, she has earned admission into her top choice school. Thank you again for making a difference in my daughter's future!
Our son was tutored by a young man named Collin. He just took the February ACT and we got his scores back today. They were significantly improved from the ACT he took last fall and his results were very strong in comparison to standardized tests he has taken in the past. My son, wife, and I wanted to send out a big THANK YOU to Collin for the work he did with our son. I can't say enough about Collin's approach, temperament, relatability, professionalism, etc...I could go on.
I contacted Varsity Tutors two weeks before the ACT exam and explained that I needed tutoring assistance in the Math and Science sections of the exam. Even though it was difficult to set up sessions in such a short time, Varsity Tutors was able to match me with Scott, an Engineering student at Marquette University. Scott pinpointed the areas that I needed to focus on in the Math and Science sections, and broke down each question to make sure that I understood the process. Scott and Varsity Tutors helped me raise my ACT composite score five points to a 31, and my Math and Science scores increased significantly. I couldn’t have achieved this score without the help of both Scott and Varsity Tutors, and now this new and improved score has made me a better applicant to my dream colleges and universities.
The first session went phenomenally and really helped me with my understanding of the content in the course. I was a bit nervous about how it was going to work using [online tutoring] since I had never used it for a tutoring lesson, but at this point, I think I even prefer it rather than in person. As far as my tutor, George has been magnificent. I am very glad you have paired me with him. He knows what he is talking about and does very well to articulate the material to me. My first meeting with him was on Monday night before my quiz on Tuesday and my grade jumped from a 50% - 80% from my previous quiz to Tuesday's quiz, and I have another quiz today that I feel confident taking rather than feeling like a nervous wreck! Overall, I'm extremely satisfied with your service.
We have been extremely pleased with the tutor, Robert, who was assigned to work with my daughter to prepare her for her Math 2 Subject Test. He has been thorough, resourceful, and has tailored his approach to perfectly match my daughter’s learning style and cover what she needed to know. He has consistently been professional, patient, conscientious, and polite. We highly recommend him and will ask for him for future tutoring needs. Thank you, Robert, and thank you, Varsity Tutoring.
I would like to thank Varsity Tutors and our tutor, Nora, for her work in preparing my daughter for the ACT. Nora was a good match for my daughter who truly benefited from the close attention. As a result, my daughter earned an ACT composite score of 34 and an acceptance to Vassar College this week. I would highly recommend Varsity Tutors for test preparation because of their timely responses and diligence.
As a parent of my daughter who was in a state of panic before her first SAT, not knowing where or how to begin studying adequately and having only 15 days until the day of the exam, I quickly looked up options that could work for her - Varsity Tutors was the right and perfect choice. I saw my daughter relax and focus on how and what to study under the guidance of the tutor sent by you. Your understanding of her needs and the flexibility of the home tutoring really made a great difference. She was able to profit to the most in the very little time she had to study. The SAT was last week and my daughter performed to her satisfaction, feeling happy and confident. We hope the results are just as positive. My daughter knows how to study and go about the SAT thanks to the wonderful and professional tutoring provided by Varsity Tutors; Marin was an excellent tutor for my daughter and even checked on her by phone before and after the SAT. Thank you very, very much and we are very happy to have chosen you.
I just wanted to let Varsity Tutors know that my daughter received her second SSAT scores after meeting with Avery for about 12 hours over the holidays and her scores improved greatly! She went up 40 percentage points in all areas and came out with an above average score! Even though our daughter worked hard, Avery really knew where to focus and gave her all the tools and help she needed to achieve these scores! We will use Varsity Tutors again for our son who will be taking the SAT and ACT next fall! This was money well spent! Thank you so much for everything!
Thank you so much. We cannot say enough about how pleased we have been with Varsity Tutors' professionalism and efficiency. I had a difficult time setting up tutoring with at least two other companies before I called Varsity Tutors. Jimmy was the tutor assigned to my daughter. He was very responsive and helpful. After working with Jimmy, she felt confident walking in to take the SAT for the third and final time. We will definitely request Jimmy to help our other daughter prepare for the SAT when it is time. Thanks again for all of your help.
I wanted to drop you a quick note to let you know how valuable my experience was with Tom. Having worked with several previous tutors and test prep companies, he was by far the best tutor that I have ever worked with - bar none. I would highly recommend him to any applicant that wants someone with real world experience to tutor them. Tom was adept and flexible in ways that none of my previous tutors were. He identified strategies for my particular skill level for each section that helped me reach the level of performance that I aspired to in my quest to be admitted to a T14 school. Simply put, Tom is the best! I would have paid double the rate if I had known in advance just how talented, wise, and adept he is at helping people like me succeed. Thanks again for connecting me with Tom. He was a perfect fit - a gentleman and scholar.
I wanted to let you know that we have been very pleased with Bao as our daughter's ACT tutor. Our daughter has enjoyed working with him. Bao has been good about communicating with me about tutoring times and what our daughter needs to do to bring up her score. I will be happy to recommend Varsity Tutors in the future if someone asks me about tutoring for the SAT and ACT.
Everything has been fabulous with Tommy. He is an amazing tutor who got me a 14% increase in between two tests. He has great energy and is very good at keeping me focused. I am sad that our hours are dwindling down, but he has taught me a lot of great studying techniques. He is very accommodating to my schedule. Thank you for making such a great match for me! Make sure he keeps tutoring because any student would be lucky to have him as a tutor!
I have to tell you, my daughter has always been uncomfortable (and for the most part unwilling) to meet with tutors because she has never had any luck with them. But this tutor's style of teaching and personality has done wonders with her and it’s only been one or two meetings! After their first meeting, my daughter already felt she learned and understood so much. Her teacher said this last test was the hardest one of the semester but she told me she felt she did really well. Thank you for what you do!
We had high expectations that the tutor, Allie, from Varsity Tutors would be able to help our son improve his writing skills. After a few months of sessions, our son proved the system worked. He got an "A" on his first report card in Language Arts at one of the toughest schools in the state. We have been so pleased with the service that we are now using Varsity Tutors for geometry tutoring as well. So far, he is showing huge improvement after only a few sessions! Thanks, Katie and Varsity Tutors!
We have been delighted with our tutor, Rubria. She is exactly what our daughter needed! Our daughter's grades have improved dramatically since we started the sessions. More importantly, she is beginning to like French - at least the way Ru teaches it! Additionally, Ru has been flexible with us. We have occasionally asked her to come on a different day or time so our daughter can get tutoring before a test or a quiz and Ru has always been willing. I cannot say enough good things about her! Thank you for the wonderful placement.
I have been using Varsity Tutors since my son and I moved to NYC from LA two years ago. I have been uniformly thrilled with the quality of Varsity's tutors - all smart and friendly - and with their ability to pinch hit and get us tutors on the fly when my son needs last minute help with a specific paper or math test. My son is an 11th grader at Poly Prep and his grades, work ethic, and overall skills have all improved dramatically over these past two years. Additionally, as a side note, his past tutors who have moved on to other jobs continue to be in our life. One, for example, is part of a tech start-up in Santa Monica and my son worked as an intern for him last summer. Another has gone on to pursue her Doctorate work but acts as a dog-sitter for us when we go out of town. They are all, in other words, good, trustworthy people. I honestly have nothing negative to say about our experiences with the variety of tutors who have come and gone out of our apartment from Varsity. They are the real deal.
Frank has been a superb tutor. He is always well-prepared and very focused on the specific things our daughter needs to attend to. He is a gentle teacher who genuinely respects his student. He personalizes his instruction and brings humor and a light touch when appropriate. Thanks so much for recommending Frank to us. He has been the perfect match for our daughter.
You did a wonderful job picking out Emily for help on the SAT and Brittany for help with the college essays. Having the right tutors, ones that were a "good fit" for my daughter, made a huge difference in my daughter's comfort and ability to work hard to improve her scores and essays! Having Emily's help to prepare for the SAT and Brittany's help with writing the college essays also really reduced the stress my daughter was feeling. While I wanted her to get help to improve her test scores and essays, I also really wanted to try to find a way to relieve the stress she was experiencing. Having a Varsity Tutor work with my daughter was a tremendous help in reducing her stress! It was such a positive experience for her! I can't thank you enough for everything!
From the get-go, Maureen was awesome. I previously took the GMAT and bombed the Quantitative section. Maureen has come in and showed me a ton of strategies that have helped me not only score better, but feel more confident about the section as a whole. I would recommend Maureen to anyone needing a tutor. Overall, Varsity Tutors does a great job pairing you with the perfect tutor. Keep up the great work, you guys!
Varsity Tutors matched my daughter with Nora for ACT practice and Nora was extremely helpful with all subjects on this test. She gave my daughter many good strategies for the Math section and the Reading section as well. She was very patient and really tailored the tutoring to the areas of most need. My daughter's ACT score went up considerably and we were very happy with the result!
My daughter was being tutored by Jonathan and she could not have been more pleased with his knowledge, enthusiasm, and helpfulness. Jonathan would even email her additional information to try to get her ready in the short three weeks before the exam. I also received a call from Varsity Tutors after the first session to make sure that we were comfortable and confident in our assigned tutor. I am pleased to say that our experience with Varsity Tutors surpasses all our previous tutoring experiences and I am happy to recommend them.
Lifesaver! Incredibly smart, patient, knowledgeable, and AMAZING! That's Andrea! Andrea is a fabulous tutor who knows exactly what she is doing when helping you understand concepts. She takes her time to show you the concepts of the material. She made practice tests and problems that helped tremendously! Andrea consistently delivered an excellent and professional quality tutoring experience! She is your go-to tutor for Physics!
I just wanted you to know that Abe was a superb tutor! My daughter learned a great deal from him and she was amazed at how intelligent he was. He worked very diligently with her and it is so appreciated! Thank you for your terrific support and please thank Abe for us and let him know we thought he was fantastic!
Our daughter is definitely getting the help she needs! Nikki is a perfect match for her! Our daughter is understanding math like she never has before! We are so happy we found you all! I have bragged about Varsity Tutors to everyone who has mentioned their child is struggling in school, and my husband says it is the best money we ever spent! I don't have anxiety about SAT's anymore - we will be calling you all to help with SAT prep! Thank you so much! Our daughter is making A's on her Math tests - first time in years! Her confidence has grown so much from this!
Chelci was a very effective communicator with both my daughter and myself and was willing to be very flexible in arranging tutoring times. She even created customized study guides and tip sheets based on my daughter's areas of weakness for use in review prior to the test. As I told Chelci in my last text, "I can attest to my daughter's work ethic, but the way she clicked with you and the uncommonly generous and personal way you invested in her were such gifts. It's so gratifying as a parent to see your child's confidence grow through an experience like this. I know my daughter cares deeply about the test results, but to me, the rewards have already been realized..." We have two other children, and I won't hesitate to contact Varsity Tutors in the future for their test preparation needs.
My Varsity tutor, even after a few weeks, has dramatically improved my Spanish reading, writing, and conversational ability. From the beginning, she skillfully, sensitively, and patiently tailored the lessons and materials to my individual needs. I highly recommend Varsity Tutors.
Brent was phenomenal. I have only been studying for the MCAT for about 2 months and he never lost faith in me. His positive energy and inviting personality made it easy for me to ask questions and be honest about concepts that were hard for me to understand. He is a brilliant guy and helped raise my Physical Sciences score even after having only four 2-hour sessions.
Your tutor has been an absolute blessing to our sons! Not only is she professional, courteous, and considerate, but she is also always willing to accommodate our tutoring requests/scheduling needs.
My tutor, Patricia, is amazing! She came so prepared with fun activities. I loved it. Thank you!
I have been working with Zachary on my online Statistics course for the past month and a half, and I could not be more pleased. He is able to explain concepts in a very easy to understand manner and I have felt much better about my knowledge and progress in the course. He is fantastic at fitting tutoring sessions in with me, even with his busy schedule. I am very uneasy with math in general, and he seems to understand how to ease my nervousness and get me through each chapter, no matter how difficult it is for me.
Samuel was a very knowledgeable, skilled tutor. He had a personable style and took great interest in our son's success in mastering difficult material. We would call upon him again, should the need arise. Thank you so much for matching him up with our son. It was an excellent experience and we would highly recommend your services.
I just wanted to drop a note and let you know that I could not be more pleased with Anna. She was the perfect match for me. Her level of professionalism and knowledge base is impressive. I am confident I am going to be able to successfully complete my oral defense for my Ph.D. with her support.
Brandon was excellent. He is very bright. Quickly understood what my son's needs were and got him working on them. Brandon related very well with my son and they got a lot done in all three sessions. He put together some tests for my son to work on at home that related to the key issues which were also helpful. Great job.
We would like to thank you for a wonderful experience with our tutors, particularly with Daehan and Giancarlo. They were fantastic! Thank you, again, for going the extra mile for us. We are very happy customers!
I'm a new believer that TUTORING WORKS! Our son's improvement in Mandarin was remarkable! We contacted you when he had a C - and falling; he'd just scored a 26/100 on an exam and we knew we needed PROFESSIONAL help! He ended the year with an A in the course and we are looking forward to resuming the support this upcoming school year!
Michael was instrumental in getting my daughter's grades up both in Math and Physics. He is passionate about teaching and has a mastery over the subject matter. He uses a Socratic method to teach and so instead of divulging answers, he asks questions to test the student's understanding. I would wholeheartedly recommend Michael to anyone.
We feel very fortunate to have had Ian guide our student through his Statistics course this past semester. He would not have survived it otherwise. Ian's clear, structured presentation of the material was exactly what was needed to help this ADD-challenged student focus. Ian's good nature, his sense of humor, and his sensitivity to the student's needs engaged him and saved him from being overwhelmed by the subject's esoterica, providing study skills that will serve well in future academic ventures. Thank you, Ian. Thank you, Varsity Tutors.
My daughter has completed her SAT & ACT preparation with Marin, and I just want to give her my highest endorsement! Marin has an extraordinary gift for teaching while remaining encouraging and engaging. She is professional in every way. I thank you for your excellent judgment in matching her with my daughter. I am one very satisfied customer!
I was more than pleased with the service! Chemistry has proved to be my Achille's Heel but the assistance Varsity Tutors gave me was amazing! I have already recommended the company to friends who are still striving for their degree(s). I really appreciate the work Varsity Tutors has done to help me further my education and I genuinely would not have been able to get through this course without the Varsity Tutors dedication. I will turn to your services FIRST if I am ever in need of further tutoring. Thank you SO much again!
Marc has been FANTASTIC, really a fabulous fit for our son - so encouraging and enthusiastic. The tutoring has gone better than I ever thought it would. I know our son is significantly better prepared than he was previously. He actually looks forward to the tutoring time with Marc and I am so pleased and thankful. Marc is a terrific person.
My tutoring experience was great. My tutor, Justin, was definitely a big help. He helped greatly with strategies on how to approach each question as well as a study schedule to help me prepare for the LSAT. He has a ton of experience that really helps in trusting him. I am very glad I chose Varsity.
We are so pleased with our daughter's tutor, Luke! Luke helped her raise her ACT score from a 26 to a 32! Luke was a knowledgeable tutor who was patient and had a great demeanor that worked well with our daughter's personality. He not only helped review content but more importantly helped her with strategy for taking the test, anxiety, and her timing so that she could finish each section. That was the problem the first time around when she took the test originally and had scored a 26. She hadn't used a tutor prior to that nor did any prep work and consequently didn't finish two of the sections. This time around she finished all of the sections and obviously did very well. We are thrilled with Varsity Tutors, their staff, and the ease of registration and good communication. I would definitely recommend them to others
I just wanted to let the team at Varsity Tutors know what a great job Daniel is doing tutoring my daughter for the SAT. He arrives on time, stays longer than the 2 hour session, and is always prepared for the day's session. While my daughter wasn't initially happy about tutoring, she seems to actually look forward to it and I never hear her complain. From a teenager, these are good signs! Thank you!
We could not be more pleased with the results of our son's ACT scores! His first official ACT score was a 27! That is a 5 point improvement from all of his practice tests; we are thrilled. Although he did not see the value in having the tutoring support initially, it clearly impacted his learning and proved results more than he had expected.
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!
Katie tutored my son for the ACT that he just took in April. He has taken the ACT twice and independently went from a 24 to a 25. After tutoring with Katie, he took the exam again and scored a 29! Katie did such a wonderful job with him. She really worked with him in English and he got a 32 in that section. Please thank her for us and let her know how much we appreciate her efforts.
I am absolutely so thankful for you guys. I had the best experience with my tutor, Evan. Evan not only helped me to learn concepts in Statistics (a class that I had never taken before), he was also so generous with his time and accommodating to my schedule that it was a perfect fit. Evan's way of simplifying material just made it easy to catch on and do well. I am in my last semester of my Masters program and Varsity Tutors made it possible for me to get an A in my Risk Management class even though I had never taken a statistics class. I am so thankful to Varsity Tutors for not only giving me the math tools that I needed to do well but also helping me to learn concepts that I can apply to my career as well as my everyday life!
We are so excited to have gotten our son's first test scores today. His tutor, Brett, helped raise his ACT composite score from 19 to 26! We couldn't be happier with his score and our son is thrilled. Brett did an amazing job with him and we wanted to let you know how grateful and appreciative we are for all the support received. I am definitely a satisfied Varsity Tutors customer. Again, thank you so much.
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.
My daughters received exciting SAT test results! Thank you so much! One of them got a 2360: 800 CR, 800 W, 760 M - up from last time: 790 CR, 730 W, 770 M. My other daughter improved, too, getting a 2110, up from last time, a 2080.
Our son showed great improvement on his SAT scores. His math score went from 530 to 640, his writing went from 540 to 600, and his reading went from 680 to 670. Overall improvement of 160 points. He is very excited about his improvement. He is going to take it again to see if he can do even better. Thank you for your help.
We hired Varsity Tutors back in 2010 when our daughter was vying to gain entry into one of Chicago's top magnet high schools. She needed help on her language scores and the tutor that we were assigned did a great job with her. With only 4 weeks (4 sessions) she had our daughter prepared to improve her scores in this area. And her scores on the entrance exam improved by over 15% from the previous practice tests. We were very happy and in the end she did get accepted into the high school of our choice - and 4 others to boot! Since then we have continued to work with Varsity Tutors for her various honors classes and they have always been excellent and professional. Carolyn, my daughter's current tutor, is an accomplished student herself, courteous when she visits and very interested in my daughter's success. We would recommend Varsity Tutors to any family that is looking for outstanding teachers / tutors to improve their child's performance on tests or in school.
Thank you so much for all that you've done to place Daniel with my daughter this weekend. She said it was so helpful. He is very knowledgeable in Physics and also has teacher qualities that she said made it easier for her to understand. She never felt rushed or pressured and she felt so much better after their lesson. She says he is a great fit for her and she was very pleased. Thank you all so much for your patience, coordination, and timing of everything. We truly appreciate your efforts. You are all very professional and so willing to make it right for my daughter and we couldn't be happier at this point.
Working with Varsity Tutors was very beneficial to my GRE experience and overall score. I knew I needed help with my math so I requested a tutor that could aide with this. I got paired with David. He was wonderful to work with! He had a solid grasp of the subject matter, was knowledgeable about the GRE overall, and was great at explaining things to me. I would recommend him to anyone!
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.
Thank you so much for Hannah. She tutored my son in Spanish 1 and was so helpful. He is getting an A at this time and understands the material much better. She started out by organizing him and quickly assessed his needs. He got an A last semester but was struggling. Hannah has made this semester in Spanish 1 much smoother. I would recommend Hannah to anyone for Spanish tutoring. She was GREAT!
Our daughter scored a 25 on the ACT. We’re very happy!! She also received the ASU New American University Dean's Award -- $6,000/year scholarship. Our daughter is having a great week. I’m so happy we contacted you. Please tell Brianna that she’s the best.
Melvin is fantastic! He is down-to-earth, smart, and has been able to help our son learn concepts that he needs to know. Our son has learned so much, and is recovering his confidence. I love that Melvin treats him like an adult. His approach is methodical, and he clearly enjoys teaching. We cannot say enough good words to describe this gem! Thank you for choosing him.
We were very happy with the service provided by Varsity Tutors to our son for his SSAT exams. We particularly liked how Varsity Tutors matched the right tutor with our son’s needs. Melinda, our tutor, did a great job and laid out a disciplined approach to get our son ready for the SSAT’s. In addition to teaching the course material, she increased his confidence and even taught him some stress relief activities. I was also impressed with her conscientious – when she could not make one evening's tutorial session, she arranged for another tutor to cover the session. I have no hesitation in recommending Varsity Tutors – they did a great job.
Wow! Perrine made great use of our time, not wasting a second. She was also just as excited as I was about the project. If she is an example of the quality of employee you have available, then your company must be flourishing with recommendations. I have been sending my employees to Phoenix College for years and have only been gettting marginal results. I will use your other tutors for math, English, and business skills.
I truly enjoyed having Michael as my tutor. He was extremely helpful, knowledgeable, affable, and just a great tutor. I would recommend him to anyone with LSAT needs. Hopefully my scores have improved on my test, but it was still a joy working with him. My overall experience was great. Everyone was very professional, prompt, and sensitive to my needs and preferences.
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 just wanted to report I took my GRE today and am happy to say my scores went up 9 points on my quantitative (156, which is miraculous for me), 6 points on my Verbal (164), and of course I haven't heard about my writing score, but I think I did better this time (originally a 5). I'm very happy with the results. Brian was an excellent tutor, and he was very flexible with scheduling. I injured my foot this past month, and had to reschedule several times due to doctor's visits and work, etc. Brian was very patient and easy to work with, and obviously his teaching skills helped me enormously. I'm happy to recommend your tutoring to anyone I know taking the GRE. Thanks!
I have had almost all of my sessions with Yilin and I think she is fantastic. I really see my scores improving after just a few weeks. She is very flexible and eager to help me do well which is a serious motivator for me. Overall, I feel like I definitely got my money's worth with her as my tutor and am looking forward to receiving my next test results because I know I will improve significantly.
Our tutor, Joisane, managed to take a very stressful challenge for our daughter and turn it into one of the best experiences she has had. They connected immediately, and even on our daughter's worst days, her face would light up when Josiane rang the doorbell. She is now very confident for Saturday's test, and also happy to have made such a good friend in Josiane. We just wanted to let you know - she is an exceptional teacher and a very special person. Thanks again for everything.
We really appreciate the help that Melissa gave to our daughter! Melissa was able to keep her focused and on task, and was able to give her corrections and strategies without our daughter getting upset with herself or discouraged. She is feeling very confident going into the SSAT and that is a far cry from where she was when we started. Your company was easy to work with and we will definitely be recommending you folks to any of our friends who are looking for tutoring help or if we need help in the future.
Thank you so much! I would recommend Varsity Tutors to any parent trying to help their kids catch up! Our son is doing worlds better and we have learned better skills on how to help him ourselves.
I just wanted to write and share some happy news - your son scored 100% on his quiz on Act 1 of Romeo and Juliet. I'm very proud of him. I can tell that he enjoys studying the play. I hope he keeps this up.
Thank you so much for all the help you've given us! You all had everything set up within days of my contacting you and at very short notice. And my son passed his test with flying colors. Breahna was a great help and did a tremendous job with him in a very short time. He said he found the sessions very helpful and went into the test with far more confidence than he would have without her help. You guys have made this so easy for us. We're so lucky to have found you! If I hear of anyone needing a tutor for any reason I'll certainly recommend they get in touch with you.
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!
The experience for our high school senior with Varsity Tutors was amazing and very successful. The directors were very prompt and efficient in their customer service. The tutor selected for our daughter was matched perfectly and she was always on time and extremely prepared. Our student felt very comfortable with the tutor and benefited from the private in home sessions. Our daughter's ACT score improved by 4 points which has shown very favorable with her college applications. This program is very affordable and effective. Based on our experience, we would highly recommend Varsity Tutors.
My son graduated and did get his Biology degree! Yeah! Thanks again for all the help. I know he feels that the tutoring was a big help and did help him pass the course. I would recommend your services to anyone.
Joseph has done a great job helping our son with his Chinese, our son truly would not have done as well without him. Joseph knows his Chinese and teaches it well and is very patient with our son. You should be glad to have him on your tutoring team. Varsity Tutors will be the first people I call when looking for a tutor. Thanks for everything!
We received the ISEE results in the mail today. Our son's scores were very good! We think the preparation really helped him and sent a note to the tutor today to let her know. Thanks again for finding a tutor for us on such short notice. And such an extremely good one at that!
I just wanted to let you know that my son scored 150 points higher on his recent SSAT exam. I know we could not have achieved this without your help! I am a great supporter and will refer you to the masses!
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!
The Varsity family has a huge asset in Jacy. When I began the semester with my college-level stats class, I was swimming in deep water. Jacy was able to come over for our first meeting on very short notice to help me prepare for my first exam the night before I had to take it. We shook hands, sat down, and crammed stats for hours. The next day, I took the exam and received a very favorable score. I never looked back. Jacy stayed with me until the semester ended, and because of her I finished the course with a B+ when at best I would have scored in the low 70's. I would say her efforts were worth 15-20 points on my average.
I want to take this opportunity to let you know how wonderful my tutor, Patrick, was to work with. I was apprehensive about this whole experience because I have been out of school for so long. I was a little concerned about having someone younger than me tutor me. I didn't know how they would act toward me but Patrick was patient, kind, and understanding. He helped prepare me for the test by building my confidence in the sections of the test I needed most and by giving me confidence about test taking in general. He understood that as a person who has been out of school for sometime that I approached questions differently. He helped me tailor the approach I was using to make it work for the test. He was prompt and professional during our meetings. He is an asset to your organization. If he can help me, he can help anyone!
Everything appears to be going great, and my daughter is really connecting well with James. She is gaining more and more confidence, and just recently obtained her first A on a test. I am very grateful to have James on board, as he is one of the rare ones with the gift of communication in addition to intelligence. He has also been extremely conscientious and responsive in his interactions with me, which is greatly appreciated. Wouldn’t change a thing. Glad I found y’all. I have another daughter who, in the next year or so, will be headed down the PSAT/SAT path, and I will definitely be contacting y’all to see what sort of prep plans you might have.
Jamila was amazing! My son is so excited, she really connected with him. I look forward to the upcoming sessions. I really believe she will impact his life in more ways than I expected! Thank you so much for sending her to us!!
Everything is going well with my tutoring experience so far. Drake has been a fantastic tutor for me. He knows the information, has been very understanding, and has made me feel more comfortable and confident with my MCAT endeavors. Thank you again for helping me and taking such good care of me!
Christine was a great match to help our son with his TACHS test prep. She helped make test prep fun for him. He was very confident going into his test thanks to Christine. We would absolutely use Varsity Tutors again in the future.
Kevin has done an exceptional job and we are grateful for his involvement with our son. Our son improved his SAT score by 150 points.
My son received his ACT results. He scored a 20 which was a great improvement from his original score of 16. I just wanted to Thank-you for your excellent tutoring, you did a great job. My son really enjoyed working with you.
I am extremely pleased with ya'lls service. Adam has been great. He helps me immensely during our sessions and is always available for extra questions after. This was exactly what I was looking for and has made a huge difference.
The ACT tutoring support yielded a 5 point improvement on the diagnostic and a 3 point over my son's 1st ACT he took back in April. I am very pleased with his results, we should have done this in the first place rather than the original ACT Tutoring class he went to. John was a good match for/with my son. John is very focused and does not stray from the subject area which is EXACTLY what my son needed so that was perfect. I would highly recommend John for anyone in the future.
My son is so lucky to have his tutor who was willing to jump in to help at a very short notice. He is beyond our expectation! He is obviously a high caliber writer and inspiring teacher. He identified the problems very quickly and was able to guide my son to think through them and find solutions. I was very impressed that after only one session through Skype and 2 edits, my son's writing was much improved to a higher level. His tutor speaks intellectually, but he is also personable and witty. It was fun listening to him explaining his comments and suggestions. He definitely helped my son to be a better thinker. My son learned a lot from the session and, more important, was able to apply what his tutor shared with him to improve his writing. I wish we had met his tutor earlier!
I have been very pleased with the work from both of my tutors and really appreciate their help. I would not hesitate to recommend them to anyone. Many thanks for getting me such good tutors.
I just wanted to take a moment to let you know how pleased we are with Meghan as a tutor. Our son really enjoys working with her and I, having seen them work together as well as my now understanding Meghan's lesson plan, am also quite pleased and feel it is money well spent. Meghan is encouraging and challenges our son in a way I find helpful to him but also in ways that I think can help me be better at my job when it comes to my son's education. She listens to our concerns and is happy to work with us but is also not shy about suggesting areas where she feels he needs additional focus and I appreciate her sharing her insight and expertise to mold the sessions so as to best help my son.
I cannot begin to tell you how pleased we have been with Spencer. Our daughter is not only doing well, and is on track to get an A in the second semester of summer school, but actually seems to be enjoying math for the first time in her academic career. We have enough pre-paid hours to finish up summer school, and it looks like she will be self-sufficient in the fall. Thank you so much for sending Spencer to us. I would highly recommend him to any other student!
Devry was all that I expected and more. She definitely set the bar of quality high for your business. I will definitely be reaching out to ya'll if/when I have something else that I need assistance with. Thanks!
Our daughter has gotten her first A EVER in a math class! She is thrilled beyond words. We are so pleased with Spencer's help.
I wanted to let you know that our daughter scored a 31 on her ACT, up 3 points from her previous composite score of 28. Her trouble spots were English and Science, so that is where Ramya concentrated most of her time. Our daughter scored a 32 in English (up from 25) and a 30 in Science (also up from 25). Amazing! We can’t thank you guys enough. Please let Ramya know how much we appreciate her work with our daughter. She was fantastic!
I have had the pleasure of working with Varsity Tutors on two occasions, and will not hesitate to use their services again. They make it amazingly simple. They worked with our limited schedule and short time frame, and found an excellent tutor to help prepare my daughter for her final Chemistry exam. In less than 2 days, my daughter had an amazing tutor helping her with Chemistry in the comfort of our own home. Ramya was simple awesome, a double major recent graduate from Rice University who not only helped my daughter be more prepared for her final, but I think gave her an example of what a successful college student might look like. Varsity Tutors went out of their way to be helpful and communicative. Thank you Vasity Tutors!
Thank you for everything. My son really enjoyed his tutor and everyone, including his teacher, saw a dramatic improvement in his reading, which was reflected in his final grades. Thanks so much again!
Marcus did a nice job with our daughter and with his help she has successfully completed her Geometry class. She is a dance student at The High School for the Performing and Visual Arts so our objective was to get her through this difficult subject since it’s unlikely she is going to be a math and science major in college. Marcus was always on time and responded promptly to calls and texts and worked with us when a hectic schedule caused changes in our meeting times. I was pleased with your service and would recommend your group to others who may be looking for a tutor for their child.
Our daughter and Jim seem to be working out very well. He has been reassuring to her and great in terms of scheduling. I think there is a strong bond developing. There is a lot of teaching and learning and good vibes!
Jay was great with our daughter. Her SAT score went up 100 points! I would highly recommend your services. Thanks again!
I really appreciate the help you have given me and it has made a huge difference for my son. Thank you!
We were very happy with Kyla. She and our daughter got along beautifully and our daughter learned so much from her. She was always on time and it was easy to communicate with her via email to set up our schedule. I appreciated her flexibility. We didn't need her every week - just before quizzes and tests and she was always able to accommodate us. Our daughter loves biology and Kyla fostered that love. We could not have been happier. We hope you can find us a Chemistry tutor for the fall that is just like Kyla!! Thank you!
The tutoring sessions have helped my daughter to improve her grades in Chemistry. We cannot ask for a better tutor than Ramya. We are so appreciative of her knowledge, but above all it was her patience that makes this an enjoyable experience for my daughter. We will definitely use Varsity Tutors when my daughter needs help next year. Thank you for being such a valuable partner with us parents.
Thanks so much for all your help with our daughter this year. We could not have made it through this very difficult year without the help of Varsity Tutors! Becca is phenomenal and has gotten our daughter through some of her toughest times. I cannot begin to tell you how grateful we are to have found your company and Becca!!
It was a great experience and I appreciate all the support my son received.
Just wanted to let you know that my son just received his ACT test scores back and he scored a 33. He had taken the ACT twice before and scored a 29, then a 28. We called your company to inquire about some tutoring and after careful thought we signed up. Our tutor did an amazing job connecting with our son. Thank you for assigning our tutor to us. We are so thrilled now about our son’s future.
I cannot say enough good things about our tutor! My daughter really liked working with him and he was an excellent tutor! She was fully prepared for the SSAT thanks to you!
We are very happy with Syed. He is very professional, prompt and a very good tutor. I would recommend him highly to anyone in need of tutoring.
I could not have been more impressed with the service that was extended to our family by Varsity Tutors. From the front office staff to our tutor, everything was upfront, honest and professional. The tutor was prompt, motivating and built a tremendous rapport with my daughter and more so instilled a real confidence in her ability to conquer the SAT test. Varsity Tutors was a tremendous value.
I found Varsity Tutors to be a very reliable and quick access to quality tutors. My son said his tutor was knowledgeable, friendly and helpful. She was reliable in meeting the appointments and providing time in her busy schedule to fulfill her commitment to tutor him. We both very much appreciate the tutor and Varsity Tutors.
The girls thought Kate was great, we should have called her a couple of weeks ago. Thank you for finding the perfect tutor for them.
Our ACT tutor, Damien was great! My daughter was already accepted into her first choice college. All in all I would absolutely recommend your service as it was a pleasure to work with you and Damien. He was always on time and very professional. Thank You.
I just wanted to let you know that my daughter has made amazing progress on her SAT scores after working with Marlene, our tutor. She went up 250 points - I have not seen my daughter this happy in months. I've listened in on her sessions with Marlene and I am so impressed with her organized, calm - and calming - approach. Marlene has found a way to keep her focused and motivated session after session. Her father and I could not be happier with the work Marlene has done with our daughter. We would recommend her without reservation to anyone who has trouble taking these kinds of exams.
Our daughter just received her SAT score back and raised her score over 500 points from the first time she took the test. The tutors worked around my daughter's very busy schedule. It was so convenient that they came to our house, and they couldn't be nicer or more understanding to our needs. Our experience with Varsity Tutors was awesome.
"Sarah is very knowledgeable in the subject of statistics, patient in her approach, and connects with people well. It was apparent from the onset that she knew the subject well and was able to deliver instruction in a context that I could grasp. I appreciate her method of teaching the subject in a visual and hands on way. As an adult learner, I learn much more if I understand the content in practice."
Our tutor, Sara, was very helpful to my son. He scored in the 85th percentile on the GRE. Thanks again. He couldn't have done it without you.
Thank you so much for the absolutely fabulous job you did tutoring our daughter. We had [previously ]done the Princeton Review in the group setting and our results were just OK. When deciding to take the ACT we took the road that led us to you. Our results were great! Our daughter reached her goal. We are filled with gratitude and appreciation. We will and have already recommended your service to our friends. Thanks again for a job well done.
Great news! Our son went up 4 points on his overall composite score [ACT]. And he went up 7 points in Math – this is what our son was mainly focusing on. Woohoo! We are very excited!
Prior to using your service, I had tried an independent tutor, and my son informed me not to continue to waste my money. I was thrilled when I stumbled upon Varsity Tutors and was willing to take a chance. I am very glad that I did. I was fortunate to get a fantastic tutor. She was highly professional, organized and more importantly great teaching skills. Additionally, her time management was great. Once my sons’s weaknesses were recognized she knew exactly how to approach the problem areas. My son was not intimidated by her and asked lots of questions. She was always available via e-mail between sessions. My son will be taking his SAT again. I know there are no guarantees , but I feel like I gave him the best possible chance to gain confidence and hopefully raise his scores to the best of his ability. I would highly recommend Varsity Tutors.
I am very pleased with the Varsity Tutors experience. All the tutors we met; Kayla, Kim, and Deahan were exceptional. Thank You. I will most definitely recommend your services!
I just wanted to send you feedback after the new tutor, Charles, came tonight! A+!!! He was absolutely a perfect fit with the girls and, really, an excellent tutor. He gets the girls to do the thinking and he guides them, so they actually learn, and not just memorize. I could tell right off that it was a good fit of personalities, and then listening from the other room, I could tell that they were having success. I told Charles that I would let you know. This is perfect for us, and he really couldn't be any better. Thank you so much!
I am writing to let you know how delighted we were with Varsity Tutors. My son had very specific needs and a short period of time to achieve his goals. After explaining our needs to the director, she tailored a very specific program for our son. Tim was his tutor, and he is an incredible tutor! He was focused, professional, and was at all times working towards the goals our son needed to achieve. I can’t say enough good things about Tim. We really felt like we hit the jackpot with him. Our son really liked him as well. At the end of each tutoring session, Tim gave me a progress report which was very much appreciated. Tim is a dedicated individual and I would not hesitate to recommend Tim or Varsity Tutors to any parent who has a child who needs a little extra help with his school work or college prep. Thank you, Varsity Tutors, and especially thank you, Tim!
I have to tell you how much our family loves Bill, our tutor. He is so dedicated and hard-working. His teaching abilities are impressive and he demonstrated an acute understanding of our kids, not only as students, but as individuals. He set high expectations for the kids and knew exactly what support they needed to meet them. We have a deep respect for Bill and are so grateful to have had his services this summer.
Melissa tutored my son so he could pass his assessment and get into an amazing private school in Dubai, and I wanted to inform her that he received his offer letter! Any success he has in life from here on out, I want her to know she played a part in it. And I wanted to thank her. My son keeps begging me for a tutor thinking they are all as amazing as she is!
Andrew, our tutor, has great energy and identified quite rapidly where our daughter's strengths lie, and where she needs more help. She felt she learned more in the two hours with him than she learned in her previous 6-week PSAT prep class!
I just wanted to touch base with you and let you know how much we appreciate the work Caryn, our tutor, is doing with our daughter. Her confidence is growing and she no longer has anxiety over writing. I know there is more work to be done but I see great improvement in her attitude about writing. Caryn is a great fit!
I just wanted to let you know that it was an absolute pleasure working with Melissa, our tutor. She was reliable, easy to work with and always prepared. It was obvious that she put a lot of time and effort into creating lessons that were unique and geared towards the things my son is interested in. He really looked forward to seeing her each day and he improved a great deal. I really can't say enough wonderful things about Melissa. Thank you for your services.
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.
My tutor Aimee and I started off strong on Verbal Reasoning tutoring mainly because she inquired beforehand the things that exactly troubled me. Previously I had thought that the Verbal Reasoning section required more of an intrinsic gift, but Aimee taught me that Verbal Reasoning could be accomplished by some of her amazing techniques she taught me. I began to see my results after the first session and my understanding of Verbal Reasoning in full became enhanced. Honestly, Aimee vaulted my expectations by a long shot. I would recommend her to anyone, she deserves to improve many other people's scores!
We were very happy with the tutor who came and worked with our son. He was vastly qualified on paper, but the better thing is that he is a terrific and enthusiastic teacher. He reviewed the ACT by subject with detailed knowledge of what was needed for testing and gave targeted 'homework' between sessions. Test-taking aside, he would be a great academic coach.
Our family was very pleased and impressed with the quality and character of Varsity Tutors instructors. We feel Varsity Tutors went out of their way to match the most qualified instructor with our needs. The instructors were very professional and conscientious and prepared themselves for the specific needs of a particular class. In addition, they were flexible and accommodating with their schedules. We were very comfortable having them in our home and would welcome them back at any time.
Sarah was a great tutor and provided all of the help I needed to pass the class and do very well. I would recommend her to anyone. She has a great personality and is really flexible. She is a student also, so that helps her understand where you are coming from. I completely enjoyed my experience with Varsity Tutors and would use them again in the future.
Heather, my tutor was great. I am so grateful for your tutoring service and for Heather. She actually likes statistics; go figure!
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!
We just got the news this morning that our daughter sailed thru the CRCT retake test. Again, thank you so much for sending Nikki, our tutor, to us, she was just fantastic.
We are in love with our tutor, Amy. She taught our daughter advanced concepts that were on the National French Exam. We are thrilled with her national placement. Her test grades increased by up to 10 points.
Our daughter needed high SAT and ACT scores for acceptance to her schools of choice, all of which are competitive. We also needed a lot of flexibility because our daughter has a very busy schedule, and classroom tutoring was not an option for her. Our tutor was excellent: she helped our daughter feel prepared and confident, and she was flexible and understanding. The service and tutors are of the highest quality, and we look forward to working with them to help our daughter write her college essays.
My son has never been a good test taker or reader, so we worked with Varsity Tutors to prepare him for the reading portion of the SAT. We hoped for a 40-50 point increase, but he ended up with a 100-point increase on that section. We have another son who is preparing for the SAT next year, and we will only work with Varsity Tutors to prepare him.
My daughter just completed her last review session with Mike, our tutor. This is it. Tomorrow is her final. Her high school graduation will follow. She is looking forward to NYU this Fall. On behalf of my daughter and my wife, I want to thank you for all that you and your team have done for my family.
Our son said our tutor connected very very well with him as he taught him new problems and old problems in a way he was able to understand, and had no problem meeting with him again. They met again yesterday. It was a pleasure for me to finally meet our tutor in person yesterday and instantly got a good impression of him. Our son took his actual test yesterday and believe it or not he got a 92%! Rolando, our tutor, was without a doubt a huge help for my son and knew exactly how to connect with him in a simple and comfortable way. I would highly recommend Rolando to anyone for tutoring. I commend Varsity Tutors for acquiring quality tutors. I also thank you for very much for pairing the right type of person for my son.
My son was making 50's on his tests before he started working with his tutor. He made high B's on the retakes of those tests, and he was able to raise his overall grade from a 70 to an 83 in two weeks. I am so thankful to the team at Varsity Tutors for the difference they made in my son's confidence and academics.
We worked with Varsity Tutors because my daughter was failing her Chemistry class. She needed a significant improvement in her grades at the end of the year to pass, and with the help of her tutor, she passed her last round of quizzes, tests, and final exam, and she passed the class. We're definitely working with them to help my daughter in Physics next year!
I wanted to follow-up with both of you on the results of our daughter's school placement process. She applied to five schools (Westminster, AIS, Paideia, Pace and Woodward). She was accepted at all but Pace, where she was wait-listed, so we were very happy! She has decided to go to Paideia next year and is very excited about her opportunities there. Thanks so much for your help with the SSAT preparation. Your flexibility and encouragement was just what we needed. We will likely be in touch in about a year when our son will be getting ready to go through the same process.
Our daughter and Tiffany, our tutor, got along very well. Our daughter is very comfortable with Tiffany and appreciates her friendliness and patience. Tiffany explains Chemistry in a way that our daughter can understand and grasp. Our daughter was able to turn in several assignments and has brought her grade up somewhat already. I thank you for being so responsive and getting Tiffany scheduled with our daughter so quickly. I appreciate your help tremendously.
Jackie, our tutor, and our daughter are doing great together. Jackie helped her pull her Algebra grade up from a 'D-' to a strong 'C' as her final grade…YAY! Once Jackie started helping her with Algebra, she aced her quizzes and made a 'B' on her final exam! Next week they are going to start again on ACT prep. We are more than pleased with Jackie’s tutoring!
We are ABSOLUTELY DELIGHTED with Tim, our tutor. We feel like we hit the jackpot. Our son is responding very well to him and is progressing very well. I cannot tell you how thankful and pleased we are!
I can't say enough positive things about Erin, our tutor. She has been flexible, caring, and does excellent follow-up. Working with our son, she has a gentle manner and is always very positive. She has given him much confidence as well as knowledge. I would recommend her to anyone.
After a dismal start to the year in Pre-Calculus, our daughter began working with Varsity Tutors. The staff worked hard to make the perfect match for her, and they went above and beyond in finding the best tutor for her. With the help of her tutor, my daughter says that math is her favorite subject. She now tutors her classmates, and she just won the 'Outstanding Achievement in Pre-Calculus Award' for this school year. She would have never achieved so much without Varsity Tutors. We will continue to work with them as we prepare for the SAT and ACT because we know we will have the highest quality tutors who deeply care about their student's success.
Our son struggled all year in Pre-Calculus despite being a traditionally good math student. He was struggling to make C's in his class, and after a few weeks of working with his tutor, he already has a 'B' in the class. He feels more confident in his abilities and the material, and Pre-Calculus has become a lot more enjoyable for him. We have worked with other tutors in the past, but they have never made as much of a difference as his tutor has in such a short amount of time.
We are so impressed with our tutor and the progress our son has made thus far in French. Even though our son is only 4 years old, his tutor has made learning effective and fun for him. I would highly recommend Varsity Tutors!
We are very happy with the help we have received from Varsity Tutors. Their Regional Director is very competent and is capable of finding the right tutor to fit the need of the student. Our daughter was struggling with Physics for most of the school year. Our tutor from Varsity Tutors brought her test scores from the 70's to the 90's after the first lesson! The confidence she has gained is priceless. Their tutors are highly qualified and proficient individuals. We have signed on for their SAT tutoring after the positive results we have received.
Our tutor was exactly what we were looking for to help my granddaughter. He helped my granddaughter regain her confidence in math and helped steer her in the right direction to have a successful end of the year. I only wish I would have called Varsity Tutors sooner!
We absolutely love Keara, our tutor. I think she is a top notch teacher. We will do some tutoring over the summer too.
The tutor I worked with to prepare for the MCAT was exceptional. I looked at a lot of options before deciding on Varsity Tutors, and what really sold me was their service. I felt like I had a team working with me, and their service didn't end after I signed up. Their director checked in with me regularly and worked with my tutor to make sure I was moving in the right direction. I felt valued and appreciated as their student.
My only regret in working with Varsity Tutors is not calling them sooner. Our tutor is the perfect match for our daughter and has helped her gain confidence in her Chemistry class. What used to take her 3 hours to complete, she now spends 1.5 hours and has time to focus on other subjects. Our tutor is always on time, has never missed a session, and checks in throughout the week to see how my daughter is doing. She'll even answer questions if my daughter calls her during the week. We're now using our tutor to prepare for our daughter's upcoming ACT, and we'll use Varsity Tutors for anything we need help in in the future.
I didn't know if Varsity Tutors would be able to find a MCAT tutor who could explain the material to me in a way that I would understand it. My degree is in Spanish, and any time I have worked with a math or science tutor in the past, I've had difficulty learning from them because they couldn't explain it in a way that I could comprehend. My tutor at Varsity Tutors has proven me wrong! Not only did he teach to my learning style, but he was calming, patient, and really showed that he cared about my success. Overall, I'm incredibly impressed with my tutor and how much I've accomplished!
I just wanted to let you know that after failing Statistics last fall, my daughter has now passed with a 'C'! This is terrific! It's exactly what she needed in order to continue with her Psychology major. Thank you so much. I really appreciate it. We really found Daniel, our tutor, to be knowledgeable and personable. If she's ever in need of tutoring in the future I'll be sure to give you a call!
Thank you so much for pairing me with Parsa, my tutor. He is really nice and was very, very helpful with walking me through the material I was covering in my class. He is very knowledgeable about the subject and was able to explain the material to me even better than my professor. I have no doubts that Parsa will be able to teach and guide me through the complicated material I'm covering. His service, as well as yours, is invaluable to me.
We worked with Varsity Tutors to prepare our son for the SAT. He is difficult to motivate, and our tutor was able to reach him and push him. Our son actually asked for more sessions than we originally planned!
We used Varsity Tutors to help our son prepare for his AP World History exam. He struggles with his study habits and had trouble keeping up with the amount of material covered in the class. Our tutor taught him the study skills he needed to do well not only with this class, but all of his classes. We'll be using Varsity Tutors again at SAT time!
Our son did GREAT! His ACT math score went from a 16 to a 22 (up 6 points) and he has now been accepted to college for the Fall Semester. Tell Samantha, our tutor, thank you very much!
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!
When Neil, our tutor, started tutoring my daughter in Algebra, she had a 43% in the class. The final grade has been entered and she ends the semester with a 76%. An increase of 33% points in two months is an increase of leaps and bounds, especially considering she did not pass first semester Algebra. I am very pleased with her accomplishment and the tutoring, assistance, and support of Neil.
The chemistry course I was in before (Inorganic Chemistry II) has ended and Sean, my tutor, helped me improve my grade by an entire letter grade. Talk about awesome!
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 am extremely happy and satisfied with your services. My daughter has gotten her confidence back on track with her problems with science. So absolutely I will continue using your services for my daughter's academic issues.
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.
Our son got a good grade in physics, thanks to Heather, our tutor. Heather is now helping our other son with math. She is really good with both sons and she helps them a lot. I would strongly recommend her to anyone.
Kevin has been a great tutor for our son in chemistry and AP World History. And under Kevin’s guidance, our daughter has improved significantly in her level of confidence and performance in math. Kevin is always on time and prepared and has a great temperament for both high school and middle school students. He has been able to connect without undue pressure and elicit progress as a great mentor and tutor.
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.
Andrew, our tutor, has been awesome! We are so grateful to have him helping our son.
Our daughter's done well in math all year long, so we’re very happy she seems to be retaining it and no longer acts or feels so lost, and that’s priceless. Linda, our tutor, is very patient with her and they work well together.
To all of you at Varsity Tutors: thank you for your professionalism and excellent service. It was so helpful to find a great tutor so fast for our daughter who had been struggling with some of her senior subjects. Andrew, our tutor, was perfect. He knew the material, arrived prepped and ready for the session, and was courteous and always on time. Such a pleasure - and the best part was the results. We saw our daughter's grade go up two full grades in less than two months. We have no hesitation in recommending your services to other parents and students looking for some direct, focused support in academics.
I wanted to let you know our son took his AP Chemistry exam today and effectively the semester is now finally over for him. My wife and I wanted to let you know how much Jon, our tutor, impressed us and represented your company. He is an outstanding young man and was a perfect fit for our son. We feel very confident in his performance today and, with Jon’s help, our son will preserve his 4.0 lifetime grade point average. We will definitely keep Varsity Tutors in our Rolodex and reach out, as we continue down these remaining years of high school with our children, should any of our children need more tutoring in the future. This was a wonderful experience. Thank you so very much.
We decided to work with a tutor from your team in hopes of building our daughter's confidence and problem solving abilities. We were thrilled after the first session, when our daughter said the tutor made math fun and she learned 'so many new things'. Each week we saw her confidence improve and her approach to math problems develop. She is now ranked at the top of her class and she looks forward to her tutoring session each week. We plan to continue throughout the summer and into the fall. Thank you!
I wanted to thank you for referring me to my tutor, Daehan. Daehan was amazing and very helpful. I just finished up my last Biostatistics class and did great. The last test I earned a 47/50 (94%). I won't hesitate to use Varsity Tutors again in the future. Thank you so so much for getting me through Biostats!
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!!
From the very start, Aasiya, our tutor, makes it clear to the student that she is there to help them be a better student than they already are. She is enthusiastic to work with children and gives accurate, time-saving techniques to answering test questions correctly. She uses humor, recognizes mistakes, and addresses the underlying issue. Aasiya was a pleasure to have help our daughter be a better test-taker!
Thanks so much for the great job you did tutoring my daughter for her retake of the HSPT Reading and Verbal sections. She raised her Verbal score from an 88 to a 91, and raised her Reading score from a 53 to an 84!
Having found you on the internet, I felt very comfortable choosing Varsity Tutors and have been pleased with the results for my 2nd grade daughter who receives weekly tutoring and my son who received a short stint for the ISEE.
I can tell you that we have been thrilled with the service of Varsity Tutors and they helped both our son and daughter immensely. Every time I have contacted Caroline at Varsity Tutors she has been totally accessible and helpful. She has an uncanny sense about picking the right tutor for the right child. She matched our kids perfectly with their tutors. Both of our children raised their ACT scores significantly. The raise on their scores had a direct impact on which schools they got into and helped with them getting academic scholarships. They enjoyed working with their tutors and were proud of raising their ACT scores. Recently we asked Varsity Tutors to help us with our daughter in a senior class of hers. Once again, Caroline picked a great tutor for her and the tutor is really helping her in understanding the class material. I cannot say enough nice things about Varsity Tutors. A lot of our friends have used them also and were very happy with them. I think you will be also!
I was just calling to let you know that our son loved Andrew, our tutor. I just want to give you some feedback and tell you thank you so much!
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.
I just wanted to say thank you so much for all of your help! Sarah, our tutor, just left and was absolutely lovely and my daughter reported after one session that 'she is a million times more helpful than anyone else who has ever helped me!' Your tremendous effort to make this happen so quickly is much appreciated!!! You were wonderful to work with and I feel so blessed that I found Varsity tutors!
Greg, our tutor, is wonderful. He is extremely patient. He pulled my daughter’s grade up to an 'A-'. I can’t say enough good things about him.
John, my tutor, was great. His professional, friendly, and approachable manner made it easy for me to ask him questions (especially in the moments I was a little embarrassed not to know). His tips about how to organize my work on my scrap paper helped me see problem-solving options that I had previously overlooked. He was knowledgeable about the full scope of content and able to break down complex problems into smaller, more digestible tasks. His willingness to be flexible was stellar as we worked to cram six hours of instruction into a very tight window. I really enjoyed working with him and my score was higher than it ever could have been without him.
Thank you! Alma, our tutor, has been worth her weight in gold.
We are so happy with Katharine, our tutor. She was always very prompt and had clear goals for our daughter in preparing for her HSPT exam last saturday. Our daughter said she felt confident and well prepared. We will definitely be contacting Varsity Tutors again if any of our four children need further assistance in their school work.
I'm writing to express my overwhelming gratitude to you and to Moo Jin, our tutor, whom we contracted through you to tutor our son several months ago. Moo Jin came in with a great deal of knowledge and patience and we have been extremely satisfied with the results. Should we find that we need to restart a tutoring plan, you will certainly hear from me. I want to reiterate how completely satisfied we have been with the service and with Moo Jin in particular.
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.
We thank you for your great service, and we were very pleased with the tutoring sessions. We will definitely be in contact with you as the year progresses if we need any further help with (our daughter's) studies.
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.
We love our tutor! She covered so much in the session and was really tuned in to our concerns. A very positive, encouraging tutor! My son definitely feels more confident. Thanks!
The tutor came for our daughter's first session on Monday. They will be a great match I think. Thank you for all your help. I will be recommending Varsity Tutors all over the place!
I just wanted to let you know what an amazing job our tutor has done with my son and his Spanish grade. I had his parent-teacher conference tonight, and his teacher was beyond happy with his progress. He is confident in class, always ready to participate, and even talks to his teacher in Spanish when he sees her outside the classroom. We are so grateful!
I want to thank you for working with my daughter these past few weeks. I just wanted to say thank you for an awesome job. My daughter has a big test on Tuesday, and I think she is as ready as she has ever been for any math test, which is what it is all about. I think you provide a very good service. You were responsive to our needs and Paul is a very competent tutor. I will not hesitate to use your services again, or recommend it to others.
Our tutor is doing great! She got us up to speed, and we appreciate everything. If we have any more trouble, we will certainly call back and initiate. Your service is wonderful, absolutely wonderful, and I will be sure to tell everybody that we know about you! Thank you again!
Our daughter has used Varsity Tutors for three months to prepare for an ACT Exam. I cannot say enough good things about this company as they were wonderful enough to hand-pick a tutor that would work best with our daughter’s personality and needs. We worked with two tutors, and both were extremely knowledgeable, were very skilled in their teaching methods, were incredibly sweet to work with, were flexible with the tutoring schedule, and knew just how to motivate our daughter to be her best. If she ever gets in a position to have to take another test you can help her with, we will definitely be calling you again. I would certainly recommend this company and both of these tutors to anyone! I cannot thank you enough, Varsity Tutors, for everything you have done for us!
Our tutor is great!! She got back with me quickly, was extremely prompt, and was a fantastic tutor. My daughter thought she was great and a lot of help. We've asked her to come back this Thursday, and after that, to come weekly. We're thrilled. Thanks so much for getting us such a great tutor so quickly!!
We wanted all of you to know that our daughter passed the TAKS test so will not be retaking in October and, of course, will be graduating on time. Thanks!!!
The tutor and my daughters just completed their first session. Their response? 'She ROCKS!' Thank you – The tutor is a great match!
Thanks so much for taking so much care in choosing tutors for my daughter. I really do appreciate how awesome you are to work with!
We were very pleased with the tutoring that was provided to our daughter in her Chemistry studies - thanks to our tutor, she got a grade of 'A-' in her course. Thank you very much for your assistance thus far!
My daughter has been having tutoring sessions with Alexander, our tutor, for her Honors Pre Calculus Class. I just wanted to send a quick note to tell you that he is a fabulous tutor. He explains the material really well and my daughter has learned more from him in their sessions then in her class. She feels he is really easy to work with and enjoys the work. She just received another test score back yesterday and she got a 110%, she is so excited. This is the second 'A' in a row since they started working together. We will definitely be purchasing more hours and want to continue working with Alexander. Thank you so much for having such a wonderful tutor!
The Varsity Tutor program was best for my family because the tutor was able was able to meet us close to our place of residence. The Math tutor helped my son with Algebra and his grades have improved and he is more confident about his math skills. After each session the tutor took the time to give me a brief progress report on each session.
Caleb, our tutor, met with our daughter today, and the session went really well. She is already feeling much more confident and relaxed about the test.
Russ was a wonderful tutor, very dedicated, and really goes the extra mile for his students.
I have used other tutoring services, and I have been pleased with how much better organized Varsity Tutors is compared to the other services. I am also very happy with the quality of tutors provided by Varsity Tutors: the tutors are timely, qualified and highly professional. Harrison, my tutor, is a great example of the best of Varsity Tutors.
We have been extremely pleased with Varsity Tutors from the initial call to the present time. My daughter needs a little additional time to digest the math lessons and her tutor provides the assistance and extra practice she needs. Immediately there was a positive change in my daughter's confidence in math class. On her most recent test, she earned an ‘A’! I would whole-heartedly recommend Varsity Tutors to others seeking additional support for their students.
I recommend Varsity Tutors to all parents who are serious about the education of their children. Our daughter’s reading and math skills have improved dramatically. Her confidence has skyrocketed. Varsity Tutors has given me peace of mind that our daughter is receiving the one-on-one attention that every child deserves. The staff is attentive, patient, and highly capable. Their ongoing assessment of our daughter’s progress and capabilities is extremely helpful. Selecting Varsity Tutors has been one of the best decisions I’ve made in the education of our daughter.
Our tutor, Amy, has been tutoring my daughter in French for four weeks now. My daughter and I are so happy and satisfied. Amy is such a great teacher... enthusiastic, positive, responsible, caring and so helpful!
Your SSAT preparation program for our daughter was first-rate and an excellent value! The program was well-designed to identify and augment her areas of strength, as well as address those areas where she needed additional focus. Susan, our tutor, was outstanding. Most importantly, the process and test taking techniques our daughter learned along the way resulted in a very high confidence level on the day of the test. We were very pleased with the scores, which we received earlier this week.
Karen was a great ACT prep tutor for our daughter. She kept her engaged, made her accountable for homework, and was very supportive and encouraging.
Karl was one of the best tutors I have ever had, and I have had experience with 20+ tutors. He tremendously helped me understand the mathematical concepts behind the physics lab, and gave me the tools that I needed to be able to do the lab on my own. He even stayed extra time with me until he was confident that I fully understood the mathematical concepts, and how to do the lab. I would give him an 11 out of 10. That's how helpful he was.
I took the LSAT yesterday. Just wanted to touch base with you and let you know that Brett, my tutor, was absolutely phenomenal!!! I am recommending him to three of my other classmates. Thanks again for everything.
The whole experience was great! Caryn, our tutor, was wonderful. Our daughter liked and respected Caryn immediately and that carried through the entire time. She was always early, very flexible about times, and brilliant in tutoring. My child is very particular and she was satisfied beyond her wildest dreams. She went into the test on Saturday with good confidence and armed with knowledge and tips from Caryn. She is sure that her score improved dramatically. We appreciate your help in making it all work out.
We retained Varsity Tutors to help our daughter prepare for her high school final exams. Varsity Tutors went the extra mile - they inquired about her learning style and her curriculum in order to find qualified tutors who would best suit her needs. The tutors were knowledgeable in the course material and instrumental in helping her do well on her exams. We found Varsity Tutors to be very thorough and result oriented. We highly recommend Varsity Tutors.
I wanted you to know how happy we were with Celeste, our tutor, for our son's ACT tutoring - he improved from a 26 composite to a 31 composite and she did a fantastic job!
Marcello, our tutor, was amazing - very knowledgeable. And my son, I'm sure, benefited from his tutoring. I appreciate the help!
I wanted to write and thank you for matching up our daughter with our tutor, Adrianne, for ACT tutoring. My wife and I were impressed at the quality of the tutoring and our daughter's experience was exceptional. She actually looked forward to her sessions with Adrianne and felt very prepared for the test. We also appreciated the prompt and timely support from your office as we tried to obtain a tutor on short notice. Thanks for your help. We will be recommending Varsity Tutors to our friends.
Your service is wonderful! Our tutor, Susan, was an excellent teacher. She was always on time and prepared. She communicated with our son and kept him informed of any necessary work or extra tips to help his progress. I would recommend your company to any student.
I definitely thought that Varsity Tutors personalized the testing experience. Sometimes other tutoring companies are unable to be specific in their approach because their services are mass-produced. Varsity Tutors helped me smooth out the details of my testing strategy that definitely helped on test day.
I wanted you to know how impressed I was with my tutor, Michael. He is very brilliant and effective with his teaching method. I was happy to see that he understood the work I needed to get done. I went from feeling I would definitely fail my college algebra course to thinking I could make an 'A'. I ended this course with a 'B'. I cannot thank Varsity Tutors and Michael enough for the help. This was the first time I paid for a tutor, but with such great results, I would pay for it again if I ever needed it. Again, thank you all.
I wanted to tell you what an exceptional job Rudy, our tutor, has done with our son. He has a knack for this. This is the second time we’ve used Varsity Tutors, and I was very pleased with it. Thanks for all your help.
I can't thank y'all enough for the outstanding tutoring. Our tutors, Richard and Joe, have been exceptional. My son feels he has learned so much from them! Mainly he has commented on how much they help him organize and plan his thoughts. Thanks for your great service!
I wanted you to know that my son make all ‘A's’ on his report card! More importantly, however, is the dramatic improvement he has made in his writing. His Honors World History teacher even stopped him in the hall to comment on his terrific historical fiction piece. He was also more efficient in addressing his end-of-year assignments and finals prep, and his confidence took a big jump. I look forward to future tutoring sessions, when he begins to work on his summer projects.
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.
Varsity Tutors was one of the few things in this life that far exceeded my expectations in terms of value. I had two of your tutors. Both were good but Chad was exceptional. He helped me bypass 6 hours of university level math classes by passing an advanced placement test. I would highly recommend Varsity Tutor to anyone.
You have consistently given excellent service, not to mention that we loved Aneela, our tutor, which is what it was all about. Thank you!
My experience at Varsity Tutors was fantastic! Brittany, our tutor, was a perfect fit. She was bright, compassionate and a pleasure to deal with. She was also a great role model for my daughter to look up to with respect to her academic strengths in math and science. With Brittany’s help, my daughter raised her math grades.
Jordon is solid gold and a top-notch tutor. Jordon has been a tremendous help to both of our kids with Spanish tutoring. Thank you.
Our tutor was absolutely outstanding in every way. We were extremely pleased. Thanks!
The last time I took a math course was more than forty years ago and I needed both Contemporary Math and Elementary Statistics to complete my college degree at the age of sixty-two. Varsity Tutors was the answer. My tutor was Sujana, who was an absolute inspiration with her knowledge of both subjects. Thanks to her, my final grade on each course was an 'A.' I will graduate with honors! Thank you, Varsity Tutors.
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.
Thanks so much for sending our tutor, Madison, to us. My son really liked her, and he also made an ‘A’ on his Language test after she worked with him.
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!
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!
Louis, our tutor, was wonderful! He was professional, prompt, and engaging. Our son felt very comfortable with him and enjoyed the sessions.
We had a wonderful experience with Sarah, a math tutor for our daughter. When we first started working with Sarah, my daughter was struggling with Algebra. At the end of the school year she received 100% on her cumulative math final and got an 'A' in the class. Sarah was amazing! Varsity Tutors is very willing to work to find the right match for your child. If the tutor is not a good fit, they listen to your needs to make a perfect match.
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.
My daughter has always struggled with standardized testing. She had difficulties improving her ACT score after taking the test several times, so we hired Varsity Tutors. My daughter brought her score up by 3 points! We were thrilled!
My daughter's grades have improved a whole letter grade.
I wanted to let you know that my son received his scores for the September ACT test, which he took after his tutoring with Brad [our tutor]. His composite score increased 5 points. Unbelievable! I am so happy with this result. This is way more than I could have hoped for. We were so impressed. I am so happy with the difference you helped make in my son's life. Thank you - well worth the investment.
I just want to let you know that Josh [our tutor] did a fantastic job tutoring my son on his summer reading assignment. Josh prepared a set of notes that will allow our child to refresh his memory closer to school time. He also showed a great method of preparing for such tests in the future. He really went above and beyond what I expected, and I now feel confident that our son is well prepared for his tests when he returns to school.
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.
I wanted to thank you for choosing Issac as our daughter's tutor. He was so patient with her and his knowledge of the ACT test was outstanding. He was able to give her tips that helped her get through the different sections much easier. He raised her level of confidence so much that she didn't have any of the anxiety she normally gets before a standardized test.
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.
After several tutoring sessions with Kirthika [our tutor] right before winter finals, my child was able meet the goal of maintaining an 'A' in Honors Biology and a 'B' in Honors Geometry.
I just wanted to say thank you for the superb tutoring services that you provided. Rhodes, our tutor, was EXCELLENT!! Rhodes was professional, organized, prompt, and he and my son seemed to connect. My son is taking the ACT right now, and he seemed very confident. Rhodes gave him a lot of good strategies and made him a list of what to bring. It was all very helpful. If I need anything in the future, I will be sure to contact you. Again, thank you for your help and the fine tutoring services. I was quite impressed.
Brittany, our tutor, is fantastic! My daughter loves her and she is such a great tutor.
Just wanted to report what a great job Heather, our tutor, is doing with my son. She is proactive and involved. Our son is definitely pleased with the sessions and finds them valuable
Just wanted to say thank-you, thank-you, thank-you! My son is very impressed with David, our tutor and eagerly looking forward to his next session.
Stacy [our tutor] has done a wonderful job helping our daughter to cope with math concepts. Thanks to Stacy's assistance, we believe that our daughter is now enabled with the skills she needs to progress her own work efforts. Under Stacy's guidance, we have seen an amazing step change in her math ability. We would highly recommend Stacy as a tutor and Varsity Tutors for matching us to her. Thank you again for all of your assistance.
I wanted to let you know that my daughter and I had a great experience with your service. My daughter was tutored in preparation for the ISEE test. We were very pleased with your service. We would definitely use your service again in the future and I would recommend it to anyone preparing for the ISEE.
Our tutor was great and my son got along with him very well. Thank you so much for your help and I will always continue to recommend your tutoring services.
Jessica [our tutor] was awesome! The best tutor we have ever had. We love her!
Our tutor worked very well for my daughter. She has really brought forth some good positive results in her. I really appreciate your help in finding the right tutor for my daughter. Thanks again!
We thought our son's tutor, Rudy, was wonderful! He was able to explain College Algebra well, and I would definitely request him again. Thank you for sending him to us on such short notice.
As a result of my tutoring sessions with my tutor, Rebekah, I have been accepted to my #1 choice for graduate school and I will be starting this month! I highly recommend Rebekah as a GRE tutor and in any subject that she believes she can teach. I thank you again for giving me the opportunity to work with her.
We have been thrilled with our tutors, Zach and Adi! Thanks so much... these fellows are TERRIFIC!
Lily [our tutor] truly has been a terrific teacher and has done such a great job that currently our son is doing much better in his Algebra II class at school. Of course, in the future should we find the need arises again for more help, we will be in touch with Varsity Tutors.
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.
The help Brian [the tutor] gave our son was amazing!! Brian is so patient and understanding. Brian used games as one tool for learning. Our son learned more from Brian in our few sessions than he learned during the school year. Brian was so patient and really helped get our son to 'come around'. My husband and I agree that the help Brian gave our son made all the difference in the world with his classroom experience! Our son feels more confident and proud of himself now!
I wanted to let you know that we received a letter yesterday from Benet Academy letting us know that our daughter has been accepted as a Freshman for next year. We could not be more happy and are very thankful to have had Varsity Tutors help prepare for the HSPT. She placed in the 93rd national percentile. This score was significantly higher than the score our daughter received on her test before we began the tutoring sessions. Thank you again for everything. We had an excellent experience with Varsity Tutors and especially our tutor, who worked hard to help our daughter raise her scores and taught her many beneficial test-taking tips. We will certainly use Varsity Tutors in the future!
My daughter's grades have improved a whole letter grade.
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 very much for the wonderful service that you have provided for Jose. Jose has learned so much from Amy [our tutor]. I was very impressed with her and your program. Thanks again and please let Amy know how wonderful she is. I was very impressed.
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!
I just wanted to tell you how pleased we are with our experience using Varsity Tutors. It has been a real pleasure working with you, and our son's tutor was excellent. Our son's first test result was a 30 on the ACT. After working with the tutor for about 6 weeks, our son took the test again and it went up 3 points to a 33. We couldn't be happier!
I want to commend my tutor for general chemistry, Ting. She was completely knowledgeable, patient, very well spoken, and would be an asset to anyone who needed a chemistry tutor. She was outstanding and deserves to be recognized as a top tutor. Due to her superb tutoring skills I received an "A" in my general chemistry course. Your organization is even better than you promised. Ting was awesome. Thank you.
I just wanted to put into writing how pleased we are with Varsity Tutors!! The entire process has been easy and customized to the needs of our son. I liked that we were able to participate in the choosing of a home tutor for the upcoming SAT exams and that you listened to both Ryan and I during the evaluation. You matched us perfectly with David as our tutor who has been amazing!! I am so pleased with the work he is doing and the immediate results we have seen. I had never heard of Varsity Tutors before but would highly recommend this company for one-on-one tutoring. Having the tutor come to our home has been a blessing as our son keeps an already full schedule with upcoming exams, homework and, bi-weekly volunteering with his schools community service program. We were able to custom tailor a program to work with our schedules rather than the other way around. I think it has been great value for the money.
Thanks to your company for having such wonderful tutors with high standards and moral character.
I wanted to let you know that my son received his scores for the September ACT test, which he took after his tutoring with Brad [our tutor]. His composite score increased 5 points. Unbelievable! I am so happy with this result. This is way more than I could have hoped for. We were so impressed. I am so happy with the difference you helped make in my son's life. Thank you - well worth the investment.
I wanted to take a few minutes to tell you what an absolutely pleasant experience it has been working with you and Murtuza, our daughter’s tutor. From our very first interaction with your organization, you have treated us very professionally in all ways. We could not have been more pleased with our tutor. He was always very punctual and was completely prepared to teach the subject. He represented you very well. Once again, you folks have a winning operation. Keep it up! Thanks!
Caroline [our tutor] has been a saint - Wish she could move in with us!
I was able to complete assignments I previously thought were impossible.
Our son struggles with severe ADHD. Finishing his homework independently has always been a challenge for him and it usually takes him all evening to complete it. With the help of his tutor, he is able to finish his work more quickly and accurately. This leaves him with some much needed down time and has made him much happier at home.
I want to thank again Varsity Tutors and outstanding instructor Ning Ning for the help my daughter received. Her grades in science on the ACT test came up on 7 points, which is really amazing!
After researching the traditional 'big name' tutoring services, I came across Varsity Tutor's website and contacted them. On very short notice, the director found an available tutor for a specialty subject that I am certain any other service would have only found a generalist to handle. Within two days we had everything set up with the tutor and began at home sessions. Our tutor, a Wash U senior majoring in the subject matter, was excellent in all respects. Very friendly, knowledgeable, understanding of the student's needs, and flexible in scheduling. I would highly recommend Varsity Tutors.
Thank you for everything. The kids really enjoyed Jeremy [our tutor], and he worked very well with them both. Again thank you very much! You and Jeremy made our vacation a lot smoother!
Dear Varsity Tutors, I am writing to thank you for the help you gave my son. We are VERY excited that he was accepted into his number one choice for high school, Jones College Prep. As a CPS teacher, I know how competitive it is to be accepted into a good high school in Chicago and I knew we needed every advantage available to us. Varsity Tutors was the perfect choice for our family. You were flexible with the tutoring plans and helped develop one for him that fit his learning style and availability. I was also very pleased with the selection of his tutor who was handpicked to be a compatible tutor. I will highly recommend Varsity Tutors to anyone who is seeking admission to one of Chicago's selective enrollment high schools. Thank you so much!
Cat [our tutor] has been great! Our daughter has made the highest grade in the class(108 and 113) on her last two tests in Algebra II!
We just got the ACT results and my son's score went up 4 points from the previous test! He liked Blake [the tutor] a lot and thought the tutoring really helped. Thanks for all your help.
Our tutor was great. Really gave our daughter the time and explanation she needed. She raised her grade from a shaky C to a B-. Most importantly she understands the material. Thanks so much.
Just wanted to let you know that we were very pleased with the services offered by Varsity Tutors. My daughter was tutored by Brian on the subject of honors algebra/trig. With Brian's assistance, she was able to achieve a solid B. Brian's knowledge and flexibility regarding scheduling were most helpful. We will definitely use Varsity Tutors in the future if needed.
Our family has had a wonderful experience with Varsity Tutors. Our daughter transferred to a new school and needed tutoring initially in Algebra and subsequently in Geometry. I must commend VT for being able to accurately assess our daughter's needs, and recommend tutors who were more than capable in the subjects we needed. Our daughter has completed her year with a solid A in her math class. We couldn't ask for anything more.
My daughter enjoyed working with Aaron [the tutor] and felt like she learned a lot. It was pretty intense--I could hear them working through problems from the other room. She felt challenged by the material but gained confidence through successfully managing the difficult topics with Aaron's guidance and support. At the end of the last session with him, my daughter proudly proclaimed to me that he had given her a difficult problem from the GRE, which she answered correctly.
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!
Maria has been a wonderful help to our son. She is patient, kind, organized, reliable and smart. She has really helped keep him on track this year. Thank you all for your support and ensuring that my son had a successful school year!
Varsity Tutors, just a note to thank you very much for your quick response to the call for help with Calculus for my son. The initial email I sent was responded to almost immediately and an appropriate tutor made available shortly after that. Thank you for the excellent service.
In short: it went great. My GMAT score went up 120 points! My tutor Chris was great at helping me develop an effective GMAT test-taking strategy and polish my quantitative skills. His tutoring did wonders for my score. The first time I took it, I got a 590, but 4 weeks later, I was able to score in the top 8%! I was definitely happy with the price I paid, the great customer service I received, the tutor I got, and the score I achieved in the end. I am always happy to recommend Varsity Tutors to anyone looking for a tutor at Wash U. You're running a great business, so all I can say is thanks!
Chad is an excellent tutor - I would recommend him to others.
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.
I hated math, but needed to pass Calculus. I was failing the class and was frustrated with the subject. At this point I decided to seek tutoring help. It took plenty of hard work and many sessions, but my tutor helped me understand Calculus quite proficiently. I made up for my failing grades and ended up with a 'B' in one of my university's more difficult Calculus classes.
Our tutors have definitely improved our son's academic performance. Thank you!
We love Tatiana [our tutor] - she's great!
Our son meets regularly with his tutor, and he looks forward to these working sessions. The key for us is having the consistent contact with a highly intelligent, successful, and supportive college student, with whom my son can interact about his studies and freely ask any questions about the subject matter. The match between our son and his tutor is terrific, they appear to enjoy each others sense of humor too. It's a confidence builder and promotes our son's independence about his schoolwork. His grades are great too. We are delighted with our Varsity Tutors experience and recommend it without reservation.
My son's test scores have gone from 'B/B+' to 'A+'. Reviewing the material with a tutor who can challenge my son with the difficult questions has helped his grades.The tutor has helped my children learn how to study for difficult courses. Thank you!
My son's standardized test scores went up a great deal. We were very pleased with the results. We would recommend Varsity Tutors again.
Our son scored a 91 on his final in Physics, which had not occured before the tutoring.
The tutor we had didn't just care about the student's grades but about the student himself and worked toward improving confidence.
My experience with Varsity Tutors was my first experience with a tutoring service, but it was very helpful and I would recommend it to other struggling students.
My daughter's SAT scores jumped 290 points as a result of her one-on-one tutoring program through Varsity Tutors. I highly recommend them as the best solution for students to get prepared for college entrance exams, especially when every session counts and time is of the essence.
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.
My tutor's motivation has actually fostered an interest in math on my part! Don't know what I would do without her outstanding tutoring abilities. She is a great teacher.
Just wanted to let you know, that my tutor has worked out great!!! I can finally understand trigonometry. My last test score was an 'A' so he has helped tremendously!!
I really enjoyed working with the tutor you selected for me and will recommend Varsity Tutors to anyone needing your services! Thanks so much.
I must tell you Drew was wonderful! The best tutor we have had so far. He was able to help our daughter and we will be setting up a weekly time for him to meet with her. Again thanks so much!
We are extremely pleased with Brian, our tutor. He is doing an excellent job with our daughter each week and she has really improved her grade in Algebra 2!
Our daughter ended math with a 78 - nearly a 'B'! Fantastic - and we have to give all of the credit to your great tutor. Our daughter was bottoming out and your company saved her. Great work!
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!
I was very pleased with Heather [my tutor] and her ability to explain the terms and problems to me so that I could understand them. I felt like my text was missing some vital definitions, and she was able to break it down and put it into "real" language that was easy to understand. I only wish that I had found you guys sooner! I asked my academic advisor if tutoring was available through the university and all she gave me was a list of websites and a phone number to call to find out if there were any statistics labs available. The first lab was held during the final week of my first class--not helpful! I was very satisfied with my tutoring experience and have already told others about you. Heather was very patient and I would highly recommend her to anyone. Thanks again for all your help!
My daughter's calculus grade improved to a B+ after just three tutoring sessions. Her initial tutor moved out of the area and we were assigned to a different tutor. My daughter and the second tutor didn't click. I brought that up to Varsity Tutors and you immediately assigned a different tutor. My daughter and the third tutor are getting along very well.
Just wanted to let you know that Jared is a great tutor and was a perfect match for my daughter!
We have used Varsity Tutors for the past two school years for our daughters in their junior and senior years. Our tutors were an excellent support in Pre-Calculus and Calculus. The director worked with us to find the best learning style/teaching match. Our family would highly recommend Varsity Tutors.
I just want to let you know that Josh [our tutor] did a fantastic job tutoring my son on his summer reading assignment. Josh prepared a set of notes that will allow our child to refresh his memory closer to school time. He also showed a great method of preparing for such tests in the future. He really went above and beyond what I expected, and I now feel confident that our son is well prepared for his tests when he returns to school.
Steven [the tutor] has done a fabulous job, his manner of explaining the math problems has been wonderful and my son has made an amazing jump in his semester grades and in his confidence level to be able to master the concepts. Steven has a really great way of connecting with my son on a student-to-student level and this has helped to avoid the possible 'shut-down' that might have occurred with someone who was much older. He has really been super.
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.
I am writing to let you know what a wonderful experience I have had with Varsity Tutors. I have never before had an occasion to enlist the help of a tutor, in fact I was often the student providing the tutoring help. Still, when I called to get information about how the service worked I was impressed with the easy, informative and genuinely supportive manner in which I was treated. Kelly was assigned as my physics tutor and he was extremely flexible when it came to working around my very busy schedule and on extremely short notice. During our first meeting he quickly accessed my learning style and where I was in my skill set. By walking me through problem solving techniques that work on every level rather than a step-by-step how-to for individual problems, I was able to make a lot of progress in a relatively short amount of time. Not only did Kelly help me succeed in the short term but he also helped me learn to think a bit differently about a topic that does not naturally lend itself to my style of learning. Kelly is an excellent tutor and truly a fantastic resource to any student lucky enough to have his support.
