"The end result was very positive. The boys have improved their strokes and most important
was able to get them to jump into the six foot end without vests and swim the width of the pool. It is not perfect but what a change. ...more They would not go into the six foot end without a vest. Their progress was worth every penny the lessons cost.
was very good with the boys and quickly gained their trust. Scheduling was a problem since they were visiting for only a short time. I would recommend calling the school and discussing scheduling first and making sure they know you are or are not flexible. Also please remember the instructors are traveling sometimes long distances between lessons and traffic especially in an area we live in can be heavy. Also we found it best to split the lesson with only one child in the pool at a time. "

"We have used
tutors many times. Their program is very
to use for locating & contacting a tutor for just about any subject. My daughter raised her Algebra II grade by an entire letter grade because of the excellent Algebra II tutor we found through
. We also found an American ...more Sign Language (ASL) tutor who is a certified interpreter which is the field my daughter wants to go into after high school. We have been extremely happy with the tutors and their skill level. I would highly recommend anyone who is looking for a tutor to try out
. The tutors are very knowledgeable, flexible, and affordable. "
"I have been a tutor (contractor, non-employee) on
for a year and a half and I have been very happy with the service they provide. I have gotten consistent leads on potential students and my earnings are direct deposited 5 days after I log the session. It is great to be able to focus on
and not have to ...more worry about the details of marketing and payments. Additionally, I have never had trouble getting a hold of
by telephone when I had a question. Great customer service! "
"I emailed and or called and left voice-mails for a couple different tutors.
responded almost immediately via text. He indicated he was with a student but that he would get back with me in a couple of hours. I appreciated his promptness and honesty and waited to hear back from him. He called back ...more when he said he would and I told him what I needed. I was somewhat concerned as he was in Miami and I am in North
, but he said he had an excellent tutor in
He was not over-selling her as Bekah is phenomenal! Neither one of us could possibly say enough about her. She is a recent Engineering Graduate who immediately connected with my 17-year old. My daughter has always been pretty good in math, but pre-calculus was getting her down and she was not doing well in the class. Bekah managed to not only help her bring up her grade but also her self-esteem..
We met again about 5 times, sometimes at a local Panera Bread or Starbucks. Bekah was very considerate of our time and scheduling needs. She's friendly, quick to put the student at ease, absolutely brilliant - yet very humble. I would highly recommend her to anyone needing a math tutor and I thank
"It started out really really good around March things started getting a little frustrating because the content became very difficult
for me and my tutor seems to get somewhat agitated. However I had to remind him as a disabled student I was taking seven glasses and earned a 3.0 and this was my graduation year.....so I just ignored what I thought ...more were comments about my abilities
to do the work. Around April the after enjoying a B in the class I dropped to a C and most of the students dropped the class all together. In the end I really believe I got a B but my professor said I was making a lot of mistakes and for to me that was a combination of relying on the tutor who was tutoring me not during my work for me so I just took the C and walk across the stage and I'm awaiting for my dipolma in the mail...In the meantime I was accepted in grad school!!!!!!

"It was fabulous!!! My son felt confident and prepared, and
staff went to every effort to make this service meaningful, fluid, engaging and fun for our family and guests. I couldn't have asked for a better Jewish experience for our family. My son's speech was funny and spiritually connected. ...more Everybody had a wonderful time welcoming him into the responsibilities of Jewish adulthood. The mentors and musicians are warm, knowledgeable and funny, and fit right in with our family and community. My favorite part was when we passed the Torah from generation to generation - there wasn't a dry eye in the house. We also did a horah in the middle of the service after he read from the Torah - it was so fun and joyous, just the experience we want to
him into his Jewish future. I'm getting faklempt thinking about it. It was really beautiful. If you're looking to give your kids a Jewish education and Bar/Bat mitzvah service, but you don't want to join a synagogue and get lost in a
help for mys son's end of year finals. I paid in advance through Paypal for 4 hours of
as well as the "one time" start up fee, for a total of $233. Our first session was to be Saturday 05/17/2014 at 10am. The tutor was a ...more complete NO SHOW! So after the tutor was 20 minutes late, I made a phone call to
to let her know, I made several more calls and also emailed
, she finally returned my call hours after the scheduled appointment.! She said that the Tutor could not find our home. Well, that would have been fine but my son sat here for a couple of hours waiting, and no one bothered to call and let me know that she could not find our house. I asked
why she didn't call me back right away and her excuse was that she was out of phone coverage. Looking back,
was very eager to get the money! She sent me the invoice through Paypal and when I did not pay it right away she was calling the house, even though she had said make sure to pay by Friday evening to guarantee my appointment time. She started calling on Friday morning wanting payment that she herself told me to pay by the evening. When she called for the 2nd time trying to get payment, I assured her it would be paid, I needed a tutor, so of course I would have to pay before they would send one out.
Once I was able to speak to
, I asked for a refund since it wasn't going to work out with the service. She said she could mail a check. I said that I preferred that she just pay me back via paypal, she was unwilling to do it. Needless to say I still have not received a check for the refund. I have again placed a couple of calls and sent an email just asking for the refund status. No return call or email.
for help getting my son through finals in a couple of subjects. I felt really great knowing that he would have the help he needed. Instead they left me with no tutor, last minute and on the weekend when it's very difficult to get a tutor.
Lesson learned here, If the business that you are dealing with has to keep calling for money before services rendered, BIG RED FLAG!!! "

brought over 2 soft surfboards at the scheduled time. He gave my kids 15 min of instuction on the beach. Once they got in the water, both kids were standing up and riding waves within 30 minutes. Now the kids have a new sport for the summer. ...more Great service and very reasonable prices. "
