Our tutor is a professional who specializes in math and sciences. He arrives on time, gets the lesson started and isn't watching the minutes tick on the clock. He sincerely helps his students by being proactive and asking for all of the current curriculum as well as the upcoming lessons to best prepare his students for success. He's easy going which makes him a great match for teens. We look forward to continuing our work with him, and would highly recommend him.

Our tutor is great: sharp, enthusiastic and able to look at where the student is standing and adjust her teaching to that specific student.
Silvia C., parent , San Francisco
Our tutor has been FANTASTIC! Super flexible, always willing to spend extra time with our daughter as needed, and accommodating to schedule changes when her coursework changes or she has last minute test prep, etc. He's great! Thank you!
Lisa Burrows, parent, Burlingame
“Our tutor works so well with my daughter and she really knows what she is doing. She is smart, kind, encouraging, upbeat, and makes the lessons comfortable and fun. She also has a lot of compassion and can tune right into where my daughter is. She paces the lessons to my daughter's needs rather than her own. I highly recommend her to any teen trying to manage this trying process.”
Caprice Haverty, parent, Berkeley
“We have now used Tutor Corps for 3 years. Each year we have been paired with a very different type of tutor with skill sets that matched our needs at the time. We have been very happy with all of the tutors and with the results! This year we have been especially lucky to work with our tutor, Shelley. Not only is she organized, prescriptive and precise, she is a delightful person and great to have around.”
Rosemary Camposano, parent, Los Altos
“Our tutor is amazing! My son loves working with her. She's always prepared, knowledgeable about all school subjects, very positive and supportive and kind. She's really been great for our son! Thank you for connecting us to her.”
Kurt Gantert, parent, San Francisco
“We have worked with Tutor Corp for more than 5 years now and we couldn’t be more impressed with their tutors, especially Matt Perry and his proficiency in Math, Language Arts and History. We have also been able to do our SAT prep work through tutor corps and both my sons feel that the tutoring and SAT prep is an invaluable tool for them to excel at a very academic school. We have been able to establish a consistent, long term relationship with our tutor who is punctual, always prepared and makes learning fun. We highly recommend Tutor Corp!”
Skylar Ulrich, parent, San Anselmo
“Our son's tutor is outstanding. Proactive, thoughtful, and prepared, she works with our son so much more effectively than tutors we have experienced in the past. She holds herself to a high standard--something that sets Tutor Corps people apart--which translates so well to how our son sees his own responsibility as a student. Their work together is having a positive impact in confidence and preparation for both the SSAT and our son's work in his classes.”
Joey Harvey, parent and Head of School, Mark Day School, San Rafael
“We find that Tutor Corp provides well trained and engaging tutors for our boys. We get detailed follow up emails describing the sessions and they are always focused on what is happening in the classroom and how best to augment what is being taught in class. “
Steve Young, parent, Palo Alto
“Our tutor is the most wonderful and inspirational teacher my daughter has ever had. She is very enthusiastic, makes tutoring actually fun and helps with complicated concepts that are easy to grasp. She has made a great difference in my daughter's confidence and success at school.”
Eija H., parent, San Francisco
"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."
