We are fortunate and lucky that Betsy is our son's math tutor. She is easily accessible, accommodating and has an exceptional commitment to her service. She makes sure that my son prepares before and after the session. After each session she sends me an excellent review of what was done and what needs to be done. This review will give a clear picture what she taught. She doesn't think her job is over after the session. She follows up with me and my son. She goes above and beyond to help my son, for example when he had a test and couldn't do an one-on-one session due to bad weather, she called the tutoring service and arranged for an online tutoring. She spent more than an hour of her time to set up. After just few classes, I see that my son's grades had improved a lot. I am very confident, with her excellent teaching skills and hard work she would make our son really do well in future.

Betsy was the best thing that happened for my daughter in the area of math! My daughter was studying for an entrance exam for an advanced placement class and the only reason why she did well was because she worked with Betsy. Betsy covered areas that my daughter had not yet learned in school, and she also helped my daughter figure out short cuts in order to move through the test at a good pace. Betsy is one of those people who really understands her students as individuals, is very patient and kind. I would recommend her to anyone who is looking for a math tutor at any level!

Betsy is currently tutoring two of my children in Algebra 2. They have found her to be an excellent tutor. One child grasps concepts fairly quickly and Betsy challenges him with more complex problems. My other child struggles more and Betsy patiently walks her through the process. She gives clear, concise explanations and is more than willing to provide additional practice work. We are very happy with Betsy's tutoring and recommend her highly.
"Able to break geometry concepts down to understandable and retainable pieces"
Peg from Dracut, MA on 10/29/13
Betsy has been working with my daughter for over a month and in that time, I have found a boost in my daughter's confidence in geometry and a significant improvement in applying the formulas to the various problems. Betsy's approach of breaking formulas down into smaller (and easier to apply) pieces has helped my daughter to approach the problems with an understanding of what the problem is looking to accomplish (and how to apply the pieces to solve the problem). Betsy is patient and is super available to help over text and email, if needed.
"Only the Best"
Bryan from Tewksbury, MA on 9/24/13
This was our first experience with WyzAnt and we couldn't be happier. Betsy treats our daughter like she is her own family. She connected with our daughter and has really helped to improve her grades over the past year. Our daughter is not only better in Math but a better student overall because of Betsy and how she has helped her with not only math but study habits in general. Betsy also goes above and beyond in our opinion in so many ways. I would highly recommend her!

Betsy's awesome. She tutored my daughter for SAT math and the results were amazing. She quickly assessed my daughter's knowledge base so they could focus specifically on the areas that needed work. My daughter's SAT score on math went up over 100 points and I am sure it was thanks to Betsy. Furthermore,Betsy is kind, encouraging and relates well to her students. My daughter really enjoyed her sessions with her.
"A perfect fit!"

Betsy has a great way of connecting to our son. He is on the shyer side and almost 12 years old. She has a great way of making learning math much more interesting. As a result, his math grades in school are improving and he is becoming more confident!!
"Great tutor, fantastic for my student!"
Debbie from Chelmsford, MA on 2/11/13
Betsy goes the extra mile and is really working with Jennie so she gets the difficult concepts, and is right on top of her work and faxes corrections, and really sees the big picture of what my student needs to get done to pass the course. Excellent job!
"Friendly and knowledgeable "
Christine from Dunstable, MA on 11/30/12
Betsy has been very helpful to my 11 yr old daughter, Who felt very self conscience about going to a tutor. Betsy was great at putting her at ease and understanding how she felt! She was very flexible with scheduling and accommodating to reschedule! She was thorough about finding out what my daughter knew and what she needed help with! She explains how math is related! A very great tutor!!
"Great to work with!"
Susan from Billerica, MA on 11/7/12
Betsy has been great to work with! She was very accommodating regarding scheduling algebra tutoring sessions for my 8th grade daughter. Right away she had a real sense of what skills my daughter needed to review in order to move on in algebra. Betsy is very patient and has provided great tips for tackling math problems. Best of all, my daughter really likes her and enjoys the sessions! We feel fortunate to have found Betsy!
"Fantastic, caring tutor!"
Renata from Wilmington, MA on 9/16/12
My daughter has always struggled with Math, by the time she was in seventh grade we decided that she needed some extra help. I couldn't be happier with the work Betsy did with my daughter. She is an amazing, caring human being!
Betsy not only helped my daughter with pre-algebra but she also helped her with low self-esteem, organization skills and anxiety related to math. As the months went by my daughter became a more confident, organized person with a positive attitude towards math and school. Betsy went above and beyond my expectations as a tutor and I highly recommend her services.
Paul from Middleton, MA on 9/9/12
Our fourteen year old daughter has been taking math lessons with Betsy for the past two months. She has had other math tutors that understood math and knew how to teach it but Betsy has much more to offer. She spent most of the first lesson getting to know her new student as a person and wanted to know what her interests are and what makes her tick. She understands that many kids have anxiety about math and sometimes anxiety about other things that prevent the possibility of any productive learning. Betsy has shown us that no matter how much math you study and practice it is important to look at the big picture and try to resolve any other issues that might be interfering with learning anything. Meanwhile she is not just feeding math lessons but also understands what type of learner your child is to best fit a program to the individual. We give Betsy an A+ and highly recommend her as a tutor.
Martha from Methuen, MA on 2/17/12
We have been so pleased with the work Betsy has been doing with our second grader. He has responded positively to her excellent way of helping him understand math and math concepts. Her helpful and caring manner, added to the proficiency of her teaching, makes for an enjoyable and productive learning experience for our seven-year old. We have been so pleased we found her!
