  • Claudia K I cannot say enough good things about Claudia. She is dedicated to working with the kids, and is a passionate swimmer herself. She worked around our schedule, was prompt and has such an easy going attitude. The kids love working with her and I couldn't be more grateful to have found her. I see a great deal of improvement with my eight year old and four year old. This is our third summer of hiring private swimming teacher and Claudia is simply amazing. I highly recommend her!

  • Excellent! There was only one other person in my "class," and we all became buddies! The class was challenging for me, but I responded to the challenge with hard work and focus, and I got a lot out of it.

  • Huntington had received good reviews. Our child's scores were pretty good in verbal but could be improved,  and she needed a lot of coaching in math.  She's a bright child with no learning issues, and worked really hard through the sessions. She was dedicated to improving her scores so she could get into her school of choice.
    Huntington administered a test at the beginning of the session, and then somewhere close to the end. After 6 weeks or so with Huntington we were shocked to see that her scores had dramatically declined.  We hadn't paid close attention to the study methods of Huntington nor had we been given a heads up that there were any issues in her progress. We discovered the decline with only a couple of weeks to go to the testing date. When we met with the tutor and the main office about what had happened, it became suddenly (and belatedly) clear that whatever method they'd been using on our daughter wasn't a method at all: she had learned no strategies to approaching the test or answering the questions; indeed their instruction had only further confused and muddled her. She still did not understand much of the math. Indeed it wasn't clear what in fact had been going on during these twice weekly sessions -- and the administrators couldn't tell us. Further, the tutor they'd assigned her was not in any way an expert in dealing with math issues. With two weeks to go they crammed in some more sessions. 
    In the end, she managed to do well and get into her school of choice; however, it was pretty obvious Huntington was not worth the tuition it charged, and she would have done just as well practicing the test on her own.  I would do a lot more research next time before I paid a service like this to help with prepping for tests.

  • Varsity Tutors was contracted to provide a tutor for graduate statistics. After contracting with VT, the assigned tutor's availability was more limited than originally represented. The tutor had taken on another job. The tutor refused either was unwilling or unable to assist in the tasks for which I had contracted VT. Despite my contracting with VT for services to be provided through the last week of June (coinciding with the end of classes), the tutor had planned a vacation at that time--a fact that was not told to me until the middle of the prior week. Despite my requests for an additional tutor, VT stated that they were unable to find anyone else who was competent to tutor graduate statistics. VT's overall attitude has been unhelpful and hostile. While they have kept my money for services, not a single task for which I contracted them to assist me was completed. Overall, VT did not provide the requested services and refused to remedy the situation or offer compensation and alternative to their services: all they offered were excuses.

  • I should also note that Dr. Adkins as stays involved with the local community as he keeps up to date about changes in high school curriculum, standardized examinations and college/graduate school admissions applications.  I know from my own graduate work that instructors matter and having someone as credentialed and experienced as Dr. Adkins makes him a strong supporter for letters of recommendation or admission application help.  Also, Dr. Adkins attends my school's annual science fair where he enthusiastically serves as a judge.  His specific and thoughtful questions often forced our young science students to contemplate more deeply about their study.  In one instance, I recall Dr. Adkins asking how pressure gradients create airplane lift to a high achieving 7th grader who studied how wingspan and shape affect plane glide.  When the student deduced that wing surface area differences cause this pressure gradient to create lift, I was astounded about how thoughtful Dr. Adkins was as he caused our student to think and reflect critically.  All in all, this is a consistent, committed and extraordinary educator and I give my full recommendation for his services!!!

  • I can't remember the exact date but the experience was very good. They explained everything to me in terms I could understand. They explained to me the condition of my laptop and gave me some very good recommendations on how to make it last longer. Also getting a eternal backing up of files. I would recommend them to customers that don't know how to choose a PC repair company.

  • I did not make it past three weeks in the class.  The instructor's English was poor, but the reason I did not return, while more complicated than I am describing, boiled down to her treatment of me.  I was hesitant in my pronunciations and the instructor was condescending when I attempted them.  While I recognize some people may find it annoying when a student is tentative, my lack of confidence after hearing Hindi in only two classes did not mean that I was not serious about the course ? only that I still found the sounds very indistinct and therefore I was apologetic in my delivery.  I do not think I deserved to be berated for my demeanor though.  I will mention everyone else had significant others who were native speakers to assist them outside of class, which I did not.  The instructor?s final speech the last day I attended was scornful and obviously directed at me.  Apparently, everyone else in the class felt the same way because they were all watching me to see what I would do.  Well, what I did was act as though it did not bother me and never returned.  I was attempting to learn Hindi because of close personal relationships, Hindustani dance and films, and I did not want negative associations to spoil those things nor did I want someone making me feel incompetent.  I took the class to learn some Hindi - not to feel bad about my or self-conscious.  I certainly did not need to pay for that.  The instructor bragged she has successfully been teaching for I believe 20 years or more though, so perhaps other students viewed her very differently than I did.
