"I always had difficulty balancing sports and school, but Tutor Corps has helped me learn how to budget my time between after-school sports and homework. I went from a 3.0 to a 4.0 GPA."
Jason, 12th Grader, San Francisco
"We were highly satisfied with the tutoring in French our son received through Tutor Corps. His confidence and grades improved. As a parent I greatly appreciated the thoughtful monthly work summaries provided by his tutor. Our son felt well-prepared for his final exam. We will definitely recommend Tutor Corps to other families."
Margaret Florsheim, Palo Alto
"Our tutor taught our daughter beyond simple understanding of the daily physics and math syllabus. She taught understanding of concepts, organization, and the how-tos of analytical thinking.She enriched our daughter’s freshman year beyond books. She is a friend as well as a mentor. We are thrilled to have her as such a valuable resource for our daughter and look forward to continuing this wonderful relationship in the upcoming school term."
Pamela and Scott David Stone, Belmont
"Comparing my son’s report cards from last quarter (before we began tutoring) and this quarter is like looking at one of those “before and after” weight-loss ads. What a difference the extra support is making! My son is not just using the tutoring as a crutch (as I had feared), but actually learning to become more organized and efficient. With each success and achievement his pride in his work is growing, which certainly feeds the cycle of working harder and better."
Laura Miyake, Burlingame
"Thank you for your help this year. Our tutor was really great. He was always on time, very flexible, pleasant and my son enjoyed being tutored, which is not something that can be taken for granted. My sincere compliments and appreciation to our tutor and the Tutor Corps team!"
John Eaton, Burlingame
"I can't say enough good things about both of our kids' tutors. My daughter genuinely enjoys her sessions with her tutor and has done very well in Physics as a result. After some initial resistance to tutoring, our tutor was able to win her over with his experience, sensitivity and positive attitude. As a result, he has helped to keep her on track and engaged with her schoolwork. Thank you for providing such caring, talented people to support our kids!"
Madalyn Friedman, Burlingame
"We have been very pleased with Tutor Corps. The tutors are excellent, easy to work with, easy to schedule and give bi-weekly feedback analyzing your child's progress and areas that still need help. I love that they come to our house."
Pam Perez, Palo Alto
"We have had nothing but success with Tutor Corps. After transferring to a new high school last year, my daughter was floundering in math, a subject in which she had always previously excelled. With Tutor Corps' help, she got an A+ on the final. This year she had problems with chemistry and again with math. She received an A in chemistry and a B+ in math. We could not be happier!"
Dana Wuerfel, Belvedere
“Our tutor is great. We are so pleased! My son loves her (his comment when I asked what he thought of her: ‘she’s awesome!’), and he really worked hard all weekend because of her. She’s a great fit. She is all about helping him take responsibility for his work and we think she will really help him get ready for high school.”
Natalie Saylor, San Francisco
"Tutor Corps has helped my son immensely! His grades in Spanish, English, and physics have all improved and we couldn’t be happier. His weekly tutoring sessions have made him a more confident student. All three tutors have been very accommodating with our busy schedule and are even willing to Skype when needed.”
Julie Milletti, Hillsborough
“Tutor Corps has been instrumental in fostering self-confidence, and independence in our high school student’s studies. Our tutor has improved our son’s organization, attention to detail, problem solving, and responsibility. We are so pleased with Tutor Corps and with our tutor, and would highly recommend Tutor Corps!”
Adrienne Roberts, Portola Valley
“We have always been satisfied with the tutors and Tutor Corps’ professionalism. I always recommend Tutor Corps when people ask me for resources. My daughter’s tutor was always positive and encouraging and taught good test taking skills.”
Debbie Kurzrock, Hillsborough
"Our daughter just received her grades and had a very successful term ending with a 3.8 GPA! This is by far the best that she has ever done and we very much credit her success to our tutor. He not only has connected with her personally, but he explains concepts that make many hard-to-learn-concepts quite manageable. She also has more confidence going into her exams which is priceless!!"
Jackie S., Hillsborough
"Our tutor is absolutely fantastic. My daughter has never really seen the value of the tutors that she has had in the past, but her tutor far surpassed expectations. She explains the concepts so well and has given my daughter a renewed confidence in her skills. Not only that, but my daughter just loves her as a person."
Cindy D., San Mateo
