Best experience! My son who is on 6th grade had to take the SSAT in a short period of time and Chris got him engaged from the first class, not easy for an online class. He was easy to communicate and was open to work with our schedule. Thanks for all the work you did!

Great Algebra tutor! Chris was tutoring my daughter in algebra. He picked up very quickly to see where her weakness is. He is very patient and takes his time in making sure my daughter gets it done. Excellent tutor.

My 9 y.o. is taking acting lessons online with Matt and he is AWESOME. Not everyone is gifted in both their craft AND the way they engage with kids, but Matt is, and my daughter already adores him. He is highly skilled, personable, creative in his approach, and fun. Highly recommended, Matt is a delight!

Mr. Snow has been an excellent teacher. He's very personable, knowledgeable, and listens closely.

Throughout my time as his student he's kept challenging me by progressively raising his expectations as my ability improves. In this way I get to perpetually make small improvements without being overwhelmed.

He also keeps in communication after hours so we can be more fully prepared for our next meeting, usually by finding or modifying the score to a song of my choosing. Because of this I get the feeling that he is invested in my improvement as well.

Mr. Snow is specifically an expert on the voice, and he has studied and performed singing at high levels. He is also an able musician, and his knowledge of music theory has helped shape my studies.

He's very good at communicating his teachings, and I'm usually able to make the adjustments he requested immediately.

After every lesson I feel that I've gained some ability, and I believe I will continue to improve my singing as long as he is my teacher. He has always been courteous and professional, and I enjoy my lessons with him.

My daughter has expressed a love for music and singing from a very early age. As a parent, I thought she had a beautiful voice and that was confirmed by a good friend of mine who recommended me to Steven. I started Olivia with Steven when she was 9 years old. Through his instruction and guidance her voice has grown tremendously. She was awarded a major role as a 5th grader in her school play and then went on to be the lead as a 6th and 7th grader. She was the youngest student in the history of the school to earn a lead role.

Olivia also auditioned for the Paper Mill Playhouse Summer Conservatory and was accepted for their August Intensive program. I have no doubt that it was Steven's teaching that helped her with her audition that gained her acceptance.

Olivia is now 12 and as a young person, needs to learn how to interpret a song so that she can perform it well. Steven takes the time to teach the MEANING of the words and explains the story that is trying to be told. This was very important for Olivia to learn.

I highly recommend working with Steven. He is a fabulous teacher with a lot of knowledge and insight.

I am a Christian Pastor and have over 20 years of Bible Study experience. You can expect to learn, understand and apply the things found in the Holy Bible to real-life situations. A lot of students read the Bible but have a hard time making a connection between the things that are written and how they are applied in real life. I can teach you both what those things mean and how they are used today.

"Rod worked with my daughter weekly for a couple of months leading up to the NYC state tests. With Rod's careful, concerted planning and diligence, my daughter's score went from 2.4 on the 7th grade Math state test, to a 2.8 in 8th grade, which equates to a move from below the 50th percentile, to between the 50th and 75th percentile. My daughter's in-school math instruction was chaotic and disjointed, and I attribute her improvement to Rod's intervention."

My Daughter has different abilities and therefore different needs as well as understanding. Ulyana has stayed dedicated over the months and my Daughter continues to grow. Uly's skill and understanding levels are excellent, but her strength of character in perseverance and ingenuity are directed toward securing meaningful success. Growth continues to be achieved in small steps with every lesson. I am forever grateful to and for Ulyana. My Daughter is a stronger more capable individual because of Ulyana. GRATEFUL,Tom C."
