Happy Families, Happy Us
Erica C., Southgate, MI (November 2019): "We were very pleased with Al's session in Geometry. He gave good suggestions & knew the material.
Tim B., Livonia, MI (May 2019): Dad was very happy with Mr. Ted and he felt that Mr. Ted was a good match for his son.
Nicole S., Oak Park, MI (May 2019): "Omg!" He was really nice and I feel like he would be a good match for Da'Veion."
Angelic H., Dearborn Heights, MI (April 2019): "Hi we meet with the tutor today we love her and like to add her to Adrianna team of tutoring. Thank you so much 😊"
Angelic H., Dearborn Heights, MI (April 2019): "We like Ali we would like to keep him on Adrianna team with tutors"
Tracy B., Detroit, MI (February 2019): "I haven't heard from Ms. Ilar yet. However, we met with Ted tonight and the first session was great. We'll be meeting with him this Saturday. Once again thank you. Also thanks for the online resources. I'll let you know when he's ready to use online."
Sister Beverly, Ann Arbor, MI (December 2018): "As far as the math retake test, I will give it to him some time on Wednesday. He passed the quiz that was given today--he scored in the 70s. He will still need to retake the fraction/mixed number addition and subtraction test. Thank you. I think with your support, he will be much more functional next quarter, though I wish he would decide to be more functional in class. I am hoping the two will come together, as he gains more confidence with his work, he will want to be more productive in school as well."
Jocelyn S., Novi, MI (December 2018): "Thank You for the referral of tutors and it was very nice meeting Mr, Freeman yesterday. He stated his background is more English, writing etc... he has to brush up on Chemistry. I believe we are good with tutors for now. Ashton's chemistry grades from last test has improved and his Dad is going to work with him,because that is his area of education. I appreciate your help and concern and I told Mr. Freeman I will keep him in mine for future references."
Chris R., Clarkston, MI (November 2018): "It was the first session and I understand Chris had to get a feel for where my daughter was at. You can tell Chris is highly intelligent, But I am not sure he is a good fit for my daughter. I will let you know if we want to proceed with tutoring."
Remarks from Tutor after Free Session: We went over recent algebra topics in preparation for an upcoming quiz on the 20th. Topics included putting equations into vertex form, completing squares, factoring, binomial theorem, some usage of the quadratic formula (unsure if this topic had been covered yet or not), imaginary numbers. A few problems from the book were examined in detail and/or completed during the hour. The session ended with a few pieces of test-taking advice, largely from personal experience.
Jo-anne M., Park Ridge, IL (August 2018): "Thank you but we are looking at someone to come to our home"
Mrs. MK, Northville, MI (August 2018): "Alicia, thank you for your input. I understand your point that tutors won't tell answers and Rina did not expect the straight answers. She wants to know the process and reasons for the answers which Delirisha does not provide. Rina said it took time more that one hour because going over the first question took time. It is ok if it is benefital but it sounds like Rina could figure it out by herself. I will ask her one more time if she needs either one's help. If she needs help from Delirisha, I will scan her assignments and her (cc to you) a copy. If she needs Ted's help, I will send you a copy so that you can give it to him. (I only have his phone number)”
Remarks from Tutor after Free Session: "Started out having Rina explain to me how to do the problem, as she was explaining I noticed a level of confusion. Rina could not confidently explain the problem even after trying to show me in her textbook on how she derived at her answer. In Rina's packet, the teacher gave her a more complex problem to study from so she struggled with explaining and getting the correct answer. So we attempted to work together to solve the problem, I asked her question such as how do you know it this answer, not this one and so on. Rina did struggle with the understanding of derivative intervals (first and second), identifying the concave upward and downward on the graph. I felt unprepared since I didn't have a chance to look over the material she wanted to review. To make up for my non-preparation I sent Rina mom some notes explaining derivative intervals (first and second), concave upward and downward.”
Mrs. MK, Northville, MI (July 2018): "He came in 3 min before the meeting and he seems a great tutor. As I said, only the drawback (which is most important) was that he may not be familiar with the some area of calculus. She is trying to finish her homework and wants to meet the tutor when she comes up her questions. It may be good to see another tutor toward the end of week, but I will discuss with her again. I will discuss with her when she is available. I will let you know when I make the appointment with her."
Remarks from Tutor after Free Session: We worked some first semester calculus problems, including minima and maxima, end points and derivatives. The session was held at her mother's office. Per prior discussion, the session lasted 1:15, enough time to stop at a convenient point.
Jim A., Farmington Hills, MI (February 2018): “Our daughter is a freshman at Mercy high school in Farmington Hills. We are looking for a tutor twice a week to meet with our daughter after school at Mercy and go over math, english and if possible, Latin. I know you are in-home tutors, and if worse comes to worse we could do that, but we would prefer to have the tutor meet her at the high school at 3-5pm two days a week. Wondering if this is possible? Thank you.” “Thank you but we no longer need your tutoring services. Thank you so much.” – Shari A.
Krystal G., Southfield, MI (October 2017): "Good afternoon Alicia...I just wanted to say thank you for sending us Mr. M.! He was on time and very informative.. My daughter enjoyed the session with him. He explained it to where she understood, there were no issues.. In fact she danced when he left & told me she loved it.. I'm so appreciative on the first day!! Also, the only question I didn't ask were the prices for tutoring. I would like to have Mr. M. once every weekend for 1 hour."
Angelic H., Dearborn Heights, MI (October 2017): Online Tutoring: "I'm she was wonderful with Adrianna working her with her math homework. I'm in also Adrianna pointed out that she likes her too but she would like for someone to be here in person"
Gee Family, Southfield, MI (May 2017): "I. Harris is working out very well for Camryn. She is a substitute teacher at Camryn's school and has been able to speak directly with Camryn's teachers to find out where she needs help and that has been great!"
Robinson Family, Detroit, MI (May 2017): "We really liked Ted” and "Lawrence connected very well with him I will call him possibly Saturday to set up sessions for next week." According to Mrs. R., Mr. Cooper and Lawrence connected and she would like to schedule sessions with him.
Khuteja A., West Bloomfield Hills, MI (April 2017): "Hi, My Daughter Nurain has ADD and even though she has a sharp mind she is failing many of her classes. Please advise if there is any summer program available for her."
Meg M., San Jose, CA (April 2017): Math Tutor For Jr High Needed"- "Hi. We need someone to come to the house but thank you very much for sharing your info."
Tina D., Livonia, MI (April 2017): "Thank you, things are going pretty good we just need to push math just as hard as reading."
Dena P., Rochester Hills, MI (January 2017): "Ms Harris was here today. She is an excellent fit and she and Morgan set a session for next Sat. We will be continually using her at least once a week. I haven't found a time yet that works for Ted and us as well yet."
Duron W., Ferndale, MI (January 2017): "Thank you but I already hired a tutor for my son just yesterday... But thanks again."
Jocelyn S. from Novi, MI (December 2016): "Ashton is very happy! I'm satisfied he is a great fit! He is professional and has Ashton full attention. We will meet again January 2017! Thank you!
Kathy D., from Morris Plains, NJ (October 2016): "Hi - Thank you for your interest but we would rather an in person tutor experience."
Barbara A., West Bloomfield, MI (October 2016): "I just left a voice mail for Deirdre that Zoe would love to be coached by Deirdre. Zoe will need to meet with Deirdre 3 to 4 times per week."

I also want to know where are you situated? can my child use your service in this area mentioned above?"
Debra T., San Antonio, TX (July 2015): "Yes, we're ready to begin. Please send the online application. Thank you,"
Robert's Math Teacher, Wixom, MI (October 2015): "Robert’s tutor could work with him on positive and negative number rules and operations since this is the unit we are working on for the next 3 weeks. Robert would benefit from seeing that material outside of class, then being able to apply the concepts in class—double learning."
Sharon C., Lathrup Village, MI (November 2014): “Good morning Grant. I wanted to express my thanks and gratitude to you. My budget is limited and I have always been honest about that. You are the best tutor anyone could possibly have and when things get better you are definitely the one we are going to call first. Happy Holidays, thank you again!”
Cassundra B., Southfield, MI (May 2013): Her daughter's ACT overall score improved and she vastly increased her score on the science section of the exam.
