"A dedicated tutor who helped my son achieve his ACT goal."
Libby from West Bloomfield, MI on 10/11/13
Carlyle was everything my son could ask for in an ACT tutor. He was able to explain concepts concisely and in easily understandable terms. Furthermore, he was patient and very comfortable to work with. He always went above and beyond, providing meaningful prep work between tutoring sessions which made each session extremely productive. Thanks to Carlyle, my son was able to raise the score in his weakest subject, science, a full eight points from his mock test. More importantly, he was able to increase his composite score six points from the mock. In doing so, my son achieved the target score of 30 that he was hoping for.

Mr. W. is very proficient in teaching English. He helped me raise my English ACT composite score by 5 points. He was punctual, reliable and encouraging.

Carlyle seems to take his tutoring very seriously, which I appreciate very much. I also like the idea that he keeps me informed on what was studied and how the lesson went. My son thinks that these tutoring lessons are helpful. He takes his first test today after having two tutor sessions with Carlyle. We will see how it goes.
"He knows what he's doing"
Rose from Birmingham, MI on 10/29/13
Carlyle has been tutoring me for the LSAT. He knows what he's doing, as he has a lot experience and has tutored a wide variety of subjects. I have learned a lot from him that has helped me increase my scores on my practice tests/sections.
"Excellent personal help"
Melissa from Commerce Township, MI on 9/23/13
Carlyle did a great 1 on 1 job with my son prepping him for the ACT. He gave him homework which was great and really worked on his needs to study for the test. I would highly recommend Carlyle!

When my son was having trouble with his math, we turned to Carlyle for help. He immediately answered back the next morning setting up a time with my son. Carlyle was always punctual and willing to go the extra mile to help my son understand the material. He was very professional and a very likeable guy. My son was very happy with his style of tutoring and learned a lot from him. This is what my son had to say about Carlyle:
"Carlyle helped me to pass my College Algebra and Trig Class. This class combined both algebra and trig and the class moved at a very fast pace. Carlyle knew the material very well and was able to teach it to me in a manner so that I could remember the information. He showed me tricks that my teacher had not shown me during class which helped me to solve problems much quicker. He is very enthusiastic about his job and always comes ready to teach. We would study for up to four hours at a time and the whole time he remained extremely focused and kept me on track as well. He answered any question that I had. He explained every homework problem to me and showed me the best way to solve each problem. He was available whenever I needed him. He was a great guy and I was really happy to have him tutor me and get me through my math class."
I would not hesitate to recommend Carlyle for any tutoring needs. His method worked for my son and I'm sure it will help your student also. Thank you Carlyle!

"Great Tutor! Flexible and Skilled!"
Anthony from Lansing, MI on 6/24/13
Carlyle is a great tutor! He helped my son get passed a rough part of his Algebra II class and he was very flexible with his time. He would meet my son anytime, anywhere and he was very responsive to my son's needs as a students and to our needs as parents. I would highly recommend Carlyle to any parent looking for a great tutor for their child.
Irmita from Northville, MI on 5/29/13
When I contacted Carlyle, he responded promptly and gave me a good impression over the phone. Carlyle has been very professional, punctual with a good personality to work with students. He's very patient and explains concepts with details until the student has a full understanding. My daughter is confident her ACT score will improve even more with Carlyle's tutoring. Thank you!
"Was Extremely Helpful"
Jenna from South Lyon, MI on 2/7/13
Took time to explain and worked well with my son to improve his Math skills. My son says he is the first to raise his hand in class, and has much more self confidence. I would recommend Carlyle to anyone who is in need of a great tutor.
"Great Tutor!! "
Rachael from Farmington, MI on 2/6/13
I started taking French lessons with Carlyle with very little prior knowledge of the language; Carlyle is very patient, and an outstanding tutor for anyone wishing to learn beginning French. With just a few months of tutoring, I have begun to develop a true understanding of both French grammar and vocabulary, and highly recommend Carlyle as a tutor!
Delilah from Farmington, MI on 2/5/13
Carlyle has been a great asset to my daughter. She was struggling with geometry. She was averaging a D and, with help from Carlyle, she received her first B on her test in geometry! Carlyle is great, shows up on time, and has a way of explaining math in a simplistic manner. My daughter and I look forward to working with Carlyle again.
Thanks for your help.
Carlyle replied on 2/5/2013:
I'm very proud of your daughter. Keep up the good work!

I am in the 8th grade and Carlyle W. is tutoring me for the High School Entrance Exam for placement in a very prestigious and high academic school. Carlyle has lifted my confidence level in my Math and Language Arts skills. When I am in my Algebra class in school and my teacher asks a question, I find myself being able to answer immediately instead of doubting myself. My class average has gone from a 89% to a consistent 95%, which has remained there and isn't going back and forth. my personal goal is to achieve 100%. I love how Carlyle sits next to me in our tutorials, instead of across and in front of me. I don't feel like I'm in a classroom being lectured. I feel confident. Carlyle is there by my side and assures me it's ok to make a mistake and we can find the right solution together. Carlyle guides me to the correct answer and he makes it easy to put difficult strategies into context. THANKS CARLYLE!
"Very patient and effective Tutor!"
Jessica from Bloomfield Hills, MI on 11/18/12
Carlyle helped me greatly with the ACT (the English section in particular). We reviewed questions carefully and he was sure to explain any concepts I found difficult. He was very patient with me and worked to my pace; while continually motivating me and giving me praise when deserved. He was always on time and prepared to work, knowing exactly where we had left off and what we would be working on next. Thanks to him, I feel much more confident in my ability to score well on the English section.
Carlyle prepared me well for all sections of the test and provided me with tips and tricks to help manage my time effectively. He was a great help and I would strongly recommend him to anyone seeking help in their studies!
With Carlyle's help my ACT English score went up 8 points, and I scored in the 97th percentile for the section! Thank you Carlyle!
Carlyle replied on 11/26/2012:
Congratulations Jessica!! An 8 point increase is fantastic news to be sure! It was indeed a pleasure working with you on your ACT Prep and I thank you for your generous feedback. Have a great senior year, and continued success in the future.
"Helped my daughter overcome the frustrations of MATH!"
Paul from Waterford, MI on 7/3/12
In a nutshell. I would recommend Carlyle to anyone. PATIENT, UNDERSTANDING, KIND, and frankly helped my daughter solve the MATH stigma that was SO upsetting her that her PAID teacher wouldn't give my daughter the time of day to help her. A great guy. And a GREAT tutor. I would refer him to any one needing help for their child.
