"Glynda's the best for SAT tutoring"
- Catherine, Atlantic Beach, FL on 1/28/14
My high school daughter was an excellent student but couldn't seem to achieve the score she wanted on the math portion of the SAT. Following a series of great sessions with Glynda she raised her score 50 points and was thrilled. Glynda made the concepts much more understandable with her hands on approach and patient attitude. The end results were more than worth the investment and I give Glynda 2 thumbs up for her SAT tutoring, especially considering what some of the other entities charge!
"Glynda is terrific! "

Glynda is an amazing tutor. She is patient, kind, enthusiastic and my daughter loves her. Natalie has gone in a short amount of time from a "D" average to a "B" in 6th grade math/prealgebra!
Glynda is able to explain the concepts to her in a way no teacher has before. Natalie has always had trouble internalizing and fully understanding some of the most complex lessons and the teachers speed through them very quickly. Tutoring with Glynda has been an essential component in this aggressive schedule.
Glynda works with a whiteboard and her visualization technique is excellent. She demystifies math and makes it seem a lot less overwhelming. Not only is she highly skilled, her warm personable demeanor helps our daughter actually look forward to the sessions, even though math is not her favorite subject.
I just can't say enough good things about our tutoring experience with Miss Glynda. It is well worth the money and I recommend her highly!

Ms. Glynda is a great tutor. My daughter comes home every session confident and excited because she "gets it", as in her words. Math is a tough subject for her and my daughter feels that she understands the lessons afterwards.

I wish her well on the SAT and ACT tests.

Glynda P. had adapted her tutoring methods to my son's learning style. She is intuitive, patient and very kind. His test grades have improved dramatically and most importantly so has his confidence.
"Outstanding tutor in every respect."
- Chris, Neptune Beach, FL on 11/15/13
Glynda has a knack for finding what works for her students. She has helped our 6th grader understand math in a way we could never. She is kind, thoughtful, understanding, and most of all very patient. She finds and knows the way to help students reach their goal. OUTSTANDING TUTOR in every regard. Thank you Glynda you are truly wonderful.
"The Perfect Choice"
- Cheryl, Jacksonville Beach, FL on 10/3/13
I cannot say enough good things about Ms. Glynda. Not only is she an exceedingly patient and dedicated tutor, she is also a sweet and compassionate person. I've always felt extreme difficulty with math, but after working with Ms. Glynda for just over 2 months, my confidence has increased by a lot. I recently took the ACT, and I walked out feeling like I did my very best. I am taking the SAT as well this coming Saturday, and I feel just as confident about this test as well. Ms. Glynda took the time to explain every problem that I didn't understand, and when I still did not comprehend it, she explained it in a new way. She really is the perfect choice. Thank you so much Ms. Glynda!
- Mary, Atlantic Beach, FL on 9/23/13
She is a very excellent SAT/ACT tutor! She can help well in all subjects and is extremely patient when it comes to explaining how to work problem. Also is very knowledgeable on a wide variety of material. Overall a great choice for a SAT/ACT tutor!
"Great tutor with excellent tactics to make your child proficient in maths"
- Aziza, Jacksonville, FL on 9/19/13
Glynda is an excellent tutor. She has been helping my 5th grade daughter tremendously. My child has a hard time getting the concepts in maths especially for fractions and decimals. She explained all the concepts in a very simplified way using flash cards, drawings, etc. My child confidence in maths is great now, and she is performing very well at school. She also started becoming a pro. in mathematics. I highly recommend her for any person who is struggling with maths specifically at the elementary level.
- Natalie, Jacksonville, FL on 6/21/13
Glynda has been tutoring my son in Math throughout the seventh grade with the goal to raise his achievement level on FCAT. Previously, Math was always the subject he struggled with and his FCAT scores were barely reaching the grade level. Patiently guiding my son through the curriculum, Glynda was able to significantly improve his grasp of the subject and to raise his confidence in his own abilities. She encouraged him, celebrated his successes and provided extra support when needed. He has scored 4 on the Math FCAT this year and is setting the bar higher now for the next year. He has asked me to, please, continue tutoring sessions with Glynda next year as well!
"Glynda to the rescue!"
- Jean, Jacksonville, FL on 5/9/13
My daughter has a "B" average in Math, thanks to Glynda. She is in 8th grade, and she has NEVER had a "B" in Math before. I almost feel like someone should pinch me! Update after the first half of the year - finished with a "B". Can't believe it. Thank you Glynda!!!
- Rhonda, Jacksonville, FL on 3/18/13
Glynda is a Great Tutor. She has helped my son understand the problems and apply that to his class room work and raise his score. She is great at explaining the work and giving him the confidence he needs.
"Absolutely the best. Highly recommend."
- Kenneth, Ponte Vedra Beach, FL on 2/22/13
I have been working with Ms. Glynda for 2 months in an effort to help increase my SAT score. I have always struggled a bit with math no matter how hard I worked at it. Ms. Glynda has made the world of difference for me with her patient, clear and concise approach. She determines where I have difficulty and then breaks it down to its simplest form to help me understand the concept rather than just coming up with the answer. My confidence level in math has never been so high and I no longer get frustrated. Glynda does not stop working for you after the session but keeps in touch regularly with follow-up calls, e-mails and prompt recaps because I know that she genuinely cares about my progress and my goals. I am very comfortable with her and I actually look forward to our sessions. It is hard for me to believe that I am actually enjoying math for the first time in my life. I just took the SAT again and significantly increased my math score which gained me acceptance in my first choice of school. My only regret is that I did not meet Ms. Glynda sooner.
"Awesome SAT prep help!"
- John, Jacksonville, FL on 9/17/12
Ms. Glynda is helping me prepare for the SAT test. She has helped with my reading comprehension by showing me how to identify important information in text and passages. She has also provided me with vocabulary words that has not only helped my reading, but has improved my writing skills. In our weekly sessions, she gives me sample math problems that will be on the SAT. She has also worked hard helping me with the essay writing portion of the SAT. All of this will not only help me to do the best I can do on the SAT, but has also helped me in my high school AP classes. She is very patient and encourages me every step of the way.
- Kaitlin, Kingsland, GA on 7/11/12
Ms. Glenda was incredibly helpful with my first college accounting class. She was willing to meet me so that we could have a face to face session. She was very available and let me ask all the "silly" questions I wanted and had the answer to all of them. We were able to cover a lot of material because she kept me on track. I look forward to working with Ms. Glenda again soon.
- Jemimma, Jacksonville, FL on 6/28/12
Teaching is a gift. Glynda is one of the few gifted teachers in today's school system. In less than 10 minutes into the first session, she was able to easily and comfortably involve my daughter and made the learning process all fun. She could discover that my daughter is artistic right away and was able to use that and actually made her smile throughout the tutoring session. She new exactly how to stir up her interest and confidence in Algebra and Glynda sure knows her stuff. And I, the mother had fun too. May God bless you.
"Very patient and encouraging"
- Jacqueline, Ponte Vedra Beach, FL on 6/27/12
My son who is 11 loves working with Glynda, and never complains about having to go to tutoring, she is a very warm and upbeat person.
- Sheri, Jacksonville, FL on 4/30/12
So far the tutoring journey has been smooth sailing and very accommodating. I have noticed that my son's self esteem has improved along with his confidence. He seems more interested in learning algebra than he ever has before! Glynda you're awesome! Thank you!!
"So Pleasant to work with! "
- Heather, Jacksonville, FL on 4/25/12
Mrs. Glynda is so sweet and very easy to work with. She has done amazing work with 8 year old that is working on his FAIR testing skills. She has made him feel very confident in his skills and he loves coming to see her. So happy to be working with her, she is Amazing! Thank you Mrs. Glynda for working with us!
- Perla, Jacksonville, FL on 4/16/12
Mrs. Glynda has been a great tutor. My 10 year old son just loves to meet with her, she is really patient and my son just keeps learning and improving on every lesson. She is very flexible and easy to work as far as scheduling sessions. I would highly recommend her services if you are in need of a professional tutor.
" The best tutor ever!!!"
- Jenny, Jacksonville, FL on 2/29/12
Mrs. Glenda is a patient person who truly has a gift to teach kids. My son is in the fourth grade and overwhelmed with essay writing especially heading into FCAT writes. My son was probably writing an essay at a 2 at best in 2 short months Mrs. Glenda has taken him to probably a 5. My son went from crying and frustrated to getting excited about writing.
- Vanessa, Jacksonville, FL on 2/4/12
I want to thank Mrs. Glynda for being persistent with my daughter and helping her not give up but continue to work hard. She got her grade up and with perseverance she will help my girl to get back in track. Thanks Glynda!
"JUST A TRY! "
- Tyler, Jacksonville, FL on 1/23/12
Hi! I am a 8th grade student! (Florida Virtual School) I do well in everything EXCEPT MATH (Algebra 1). Miss Glynda meet me at a library so I felt comfortable but it was in a very quite room where there is no distractions so I was very happy with that. Also we went over a WHOLE lesson within an hour! She was VERY patient,and kind. She really knows her stuff. In just one hour my grade increased 2% now that may not sound like alot but believe me if your struggling in a subject and your striving for that "B" and or "A", a little %'s here and there add up over time. We went over the material and what I liked was she would let me continue, but she preferred I had "structure" before I moved on so if there was anything to do with what we just went over we wouldn't have a problem! She was knowledgeable and for the first impression, did AWESOME!
" Very Knowledgable"
- Jackie, Atlantic Beach, FL on 1/12/12
I was so pleased that Mrs. P. took it upon herself to find some FCAT materials that she knew my daughter would need some exposure to prior to FCAT. These were skills that might not get covered well at school due to the amount of time left. I really appreciate the way she helps my daughter to understand math, not just do math.
"Just Terrific !!!"
- Mike, Jacksonville, FL on 12/11/11
Glynda P. is the most helpful tutor/teacher that I have ever had the privilege of hiring. She worked with my ADHD son very patiently and she was well prepared for every lesson before she came to our house. I wish I could hire her to tutor my son 3 or 4 times per week, but i just can't afford it as a single father with 3 young children. She made me and my son feel great about the lessons and in just 1 week of tutoring, I have seen lots and lots of improvement with my son. Glynda is an absolute gem and any one in need of a tutor for their child will be lucky to have her. I wish her the best as she is helping the children in our community and she should be proud of herself for the awesome service she provides. If my job gives me back the hours I have recently lost, Glynda will be my first expense as she is the only one I will call to help my son.
"Positive and passionate"
- Vanessa, Jacksonville, FL on 11/30/11
Glynda truly cares about seeing my son succeed. I am very pleased with the time and effort she puts into helping him "get it". If I could afford it, I would have my son tutored at least three times a week with her. She has passion and she connects with him. He leaves with pride and a smile and that's what learning should be...fun! Thanks, Glynda!!!
- Missy, Jacksonville, FL on 10/5/11
While I have only had a couple sessions with Glynda I feel that she is really helping my son. I feel that he is getting excited about learning. A good example is that yesterday she was working with him on rounding numbers and then we went to the store and he was rounding numbers the entire time. Thanks Glynda for making my son excited to learn.
- APRIL, Jacksonville, FL on 10/3/11
I am very happy with my sons progress this school year, he went from a "c" student last year to an "a" this year thanks to Mrs. Glynda. In 6th grade he was not very confident in math, we started tutoring 3 weeks before school and he is at the top of his 7th grade math class. She's always so organized and prepared for the lesson so know time is ever wasted. I really loved that she took him back to basics and in his first lesson she was able to determine where and why he was having problems. Now he is so confident and he just gets it! Thanks Mrs Glynda!
"Great first lesson"
- Karen, Saint Augustine, FL on 9/23/11
My daughter was really apprehensive before we met Glenda. She is shy when meeting new people, but Glenda was very nice and patient with Kayla and was able to break some ground in her understanding of Geometry. I was pleasantly surprise when she came out of the first session looking more confidant and we look forward to the next lesson.
- Susan, Ponte Vedra Beach, FL on 9/15/11
I've been extremely pleased with Glynda! She is organized, caring and most importantly teaching my son a lot!! I feel very lucky that we found her here on WyzAnt.
- NIRMALA, Jacksonville, FL on 8/26/11
My daughter has been taking lessons from Glynda. In the beginning, she evaluated her, made notes on her strengths and weaknesses. Has been working on her weaknesses since then which I think is the right approach to attain maximum result. Glynda communicates well with parents. My daughter looks forward to meet her every week.
- Judi, Jacksonville, FL on 7/17/11
Glynda was exceptionally enthusiastic in her approach to tutoring. She was very positive and continually encouraged my son in grasping of new more challenging information. In math, she was careful not to miss the details which helped to build a solid foundation for future learning of more complex mathmatical problems. Thanks!
