The teacher is very nice to the student, helps the student in different ways, and explains problem so the student understands their mistake.
Charley
Meagan is very flexible and is a great teacher. She doesn't make the student feel self-conscious about answering wrong, She gently asks the student to explain how they came up with the answer and allows them to correct themselves. If the student doesn't realize their error during the explanation, she explains to the student wherein the equation they made an error. She also repeats the problem areas with the student until they have a full understanding of the process.

I sought Meagan out after my daughter came home with a failing grade in Algebra I. I am very happy with my selection, she is the perfect fit for my daughter. She is very flexible and I appreciate that she doesn't make my daughter feel like her lack of understanding of the subject matter makes her inadequate. I am going to continue hiring Meagan for the duration of the school year, my daughter really likes her and is learning far more than she is from her regular classroom environment.

She's great!

Matt is very smart and patient. Matt took the time to understand my unique learning needs.
Rhonda
After speaking to multiple tutoring companies, we discovered Matthew. Matthew was very professional and made my son feel comfortable. They had a total of 5 tutoring sessions covering Math, English, Science and Reading. My son took the ACT after his tutoring sessions and scored a 23. We were very pleased with the progress our son made by going from an ACT score of 19 to 23 after only 5 sessions with Matthew. I would highly recommend Matthew J. Horwich to anyone needing tutoring.

I love to write and I will impart that love to you. I have thirteen years of experience teaching writing, research, and public speaking at the university level. We each have a unique writing voice and I will help you find that voice within you and build self-confidence. I have worked with many students who were told by other teachers that they had no talent, but we proved them wrong!

Maggie is a great teacher and mentor for writing. She has extensive experience in creative nonfiction, and she is able to individualize her teaching so that students can achieve their personal goals. She teaches and guides with compassion and genuine caring, and I would highly recommend her!

Dr. Maggie Fry does everything in her power to help students achieve greatness. Her lectures are relevant, thorough, and engaging. She is equal parts witty and attentive; any feedback given is done so with an open mind. I believe that she has made me a better, more confident writer due to her encouragement - going out of her way to provide me with a list of publishers who accept student work. She gave me the courage to pursue my passion in life and finally declare my major as English with a concentration in writing.

I knew that the competition was going to be fierce and while I believe that my daughter has real talent I also knew that she needed help organizing here ideas. Needless to say, she was selected to participate in the writing program. We both know that Jonita’s guidance and collaboration helped her achieve that goal. Jonita’s teaching style is exceptional and refreshing. My daughter hopes to work with her again as she transitions to the next stage of her journey as a young writer."

"When it came time to apply to graduate school, I wanted to express every ounce of appreciation for public health – except I struggled with transferring much of that admiration into writing. I could easily call up experiences and memories during conversation, but to fashion them into a fluid essay remained a tall task. This is where Nick really shined. We spent hours talking through these experiences with a focus on harnessing their emotional footprint. It took some open-mindedness, plus the will to resist the inertial tug of old habits, but with Nick’s help I was able to write from a place of passion for the first time in my life."
