"Stephanie is a genius"
Maryam from Cupertino, CA on 6/27/14
Stephanie is an amazing tutor. My daughter got her SAT score yesterday on June 26. Before working with Stephanie, my daughter spent her previous summer going to SAT classes. After spending the whole summer working on their strategies to raise her score, the result was very disappointing. Her score dropped from 1900 to 1830. Fortunately, we had the chance to meet Stephanie through WyzAnt. After only seven lessons with Stephanie, my daughter's score went up from 1830 to 2150! Her reading score was 590 on her last test and went up to 780. Even though most of her SAT lessons were in the month of May while my daughter was very busy with AP tests and finals for her junior year, and didn't have much quality time to study, her score still improved by 320 points. I really wish we had found Stephanie earlier, and had not wasted money and time on other SAT tutoring classes.
Stephanie knows what she is doing. She was very confident, even in her first class with my daughter. She always wrote me her detailed feedback on the lessons, and always said that she was confident in her own work and on my daughter's improvement. I will definitely refer Stephanie to anyone who is looking to improve their SAT score. I'm also going to work with her on my daughter's college planing. Stephanie has the ability of encouraging students to study harder. My daughter is a junior and has had good tutors, but she was never happy to go to her tutoring classes. After her first SAT class with Stephanie, she said that she had learned a lot. They had a great teacher-student relationship. She studied hard and tried to practice as much as possible even with her busy schedule. I really appreciate Stephanie's efforts to help our daughter and thank WyzAnt for introducing Stephanie to us.
"Extremely helpful and patient"

Stephanie is very helpful and responsible. She helped my child's grade rise. She is also very patient and very clear during her teaching. Easy to communicate with and reach, with a positive attitude. I recommend her as a tutor, my kid benefited a lot from her and gained many skills.
"Attentive and Effective"

I took English lessons from Stephanie to improve the communication skills in a professional environment. So the goal was not very specific and it would have been unclear what and how to teach me. However she would figure out soon how to go about it. She has been very attentive during the sessions and I got good feedback from her on my weaknesses and what to do to communicate better. She is very effective and pointed and I would recommend her to anyone who considers improving their English skills.

Having not studied in U.S before, and my daughter having big goals, we wanted to understand how to prepare for colleges and what we needed to focus on during middle and high school years. Stephanie read through our questions ahead and was prepared for the class. She was very detailed. Most importantly what I liked was, she was very frank in her feedback and did not hesitate to explain why our approach was wrong in some areas. Also, she definitely was able connect with my daughter and convince her to think outside the box, take up challenges that she believes are right, and believe in herself. We are very glad that we had this session. Totally worth it!!
"Great Chinese tutor for my second grader"
Jessie from Cupertino, CA on 2/28/14
My second-grader was not able to speak Chinese at all and I found him a Chinese tutor last year. After a few months, he started to develop very negative feeling towards learning Chinese. He would cry when it's about time to start the lesson. So I decided to check out WyzAnt, to see if I can find a good Chinese tutor. Then I found Stephanie. It has been 5 months since we started the lesson with Stephanie. What a huge different I can see on my son's Chinese! Stephanie is very patient with kids and she makes the lesson fun. Her teaching style is very encouraging and I think that's very important for young kids. My son can now understand quite a few Chinese words and he is able to speak basic Chinese sentences. Most importantly, he is very happy learning Chinese from Stephanie! I would recommend Stephanie to anyone who is looking for a Chinese tutor.

I want to thank Stephanie for all the work she did on my SAT and college application!
Stephanie is really patient, and she explains SAT reading and writing skills very thoroughly and clearly. When I have no idea about a question she asks, she will say "let's think about it in another way." I truly learned many tips on taking SAT tests from her. Stephanie is also extremely encouraging. When she set the goal which I didn't believe I would reach the first time we met, she told me "I know you can do it." After several classes with her, my SAT score is improved by 300 points and unbelievably reached our goal.
Stephanie also knows how to edit college apps very well. When I finished drafts for college essays, she would go through with me and told me where the grammar was wrong. I learned many writing skills through classes with her.
Again, Stephanie is a great tutor who can help with college apps and SAT! Thank you!
