Hilary continues to keep my 17 year old son engaged in the summer tutoring process! I am thrilled. She also keeps in constant contact with me re: his progress.
"Conscientious and patient"
Robyn from West Grove, PA on 5/31/14
Hilary is very conscientious and proactive in making sure to tailor her lessons to the student's needs. In the beginning, she asked me questions about my daughter's learning style and needs to make sure to modify her lessons accordingly. She also reached out to my daughter's teacher. I was able to email her copies of my daughter's completed tests and/or assessments so they could work on the problem areas. My daughter is very hyper and since our lessons were later in the evening it was often difficult to keep her focused, but Hilary was patient. My daughter liked her very much and was very sorry to end our lessons (we reached the end of the school year and opted not to use a tutor over the summer). I would use Hilary again.

Hilary has been working with my son for four sessions so far and I have noticed such an improvement! She has been working with my son for approximately 1 month now and I have seen his interest in reading, ability to comprehend and retain blossom to new heights. She provides positive reinforcement that gives my son the confidence he needs and she's extremely patient with him. Her personality and patience make it so easy for my son to be confident and comfortable around her and that is a definite plus! Absolutely love that she's my son's tutor!
"Off to a great start."

This was the first visit, Hilary is patient and had my son's attention. I will continue her services. Thank you.
"Has been a tremendous help"
Zoe from Hockessin, DE on 12/16/13
Our daughter was struggling in 2nd grade with reading and comprehension and had been joining special reading classes at school to catch up. We would try and spend extra time with her at home but struggled to keep her focused and we were concerned that what we were working on with her might not be consistent with the school. So we looked on WyzAnt for a tutor to help our daughter 2 hours a week and found Hilary.
Hilary has been a great help. She ensures that what she does with our daughter complements the school learning. Our daughter is focused throughout the sessions and clearly enjoys her time with Hilary.
We have been working with Hilary now for 3 months and recently at a school conference, the teacher noted how much our daughter has improved. Her reading and comprehension is much better and with a further test soon, her teacher expects our daughter to be tracking in line with the rest of her class. This will be a significant improvement from her last test if that is the case.
In a short amount of time, Hilary has made a positive impact on our daughter and we and the school have seen real progress in our daughter's abilities.

When we decided to look for a tutor for our children, we didn't know where to look or who to ask. That is why I am leaving this review. We found Hilary on WyzAnt, and when we reached out to her, I honestly didn't know what to expect. That was 4 months ago, and I must say it was one of the best decisions we've made! Hilary has been an amazing asset. We realized that we didn't want our children to just be good students, but we wanted them to excel and get the spark back that they once had about learning. Both of my children are volunteering more in class, and the teachers have noticed a difference in their confidence level as well. My youngest son even taught the class (and his teacher) an easier way to solve a math problem, thanks to Hilary! He is now one of the best math students in his class and has the confidence to go along with it! That is priceless!
"Very patient and understanding!"

Hilary is a great tutor who can help out students struggling in many different subject areas. She explains concepts thoroughly and gives examples for better understanding.
"Great tutor, very knowledgeable and patient!"
Betsy from Newark, DE on 11/12/13
Hilary is a very knowledgeable, patient, and well-organized tutor. I have been extremely satisfied with her way of teaching and delivering the material we agreed on together. Hilary displayed a deep interest in our daughter’s success. She engaged her in discussions, took the time to learn her strengths and weaknesses, and tutored her on ways to overcome her flaws. It was a pleasure having Hilary help our child and we look forward to using her service weekly throughout the school year. I strongly recommend her as a teacher/tutor.
"Really awesome tutor."

I feel great having my daughter go into the SATs this weekend after Hilary's tutoring! I know she has a super chance to improve her score!

Hilary was able to get my son to focus on activities for long periods of time. He really warmed up to her demeanor rather quickly.
Lonnie from Pittsburgh, PA on 7/31/13
Hilary worked with our son for a year, he has improved his reading skills and comprehension because of Hilary’s hard work and dedication. Thanks for all the time you dedicated to our son, I know he enjoyed the time he invested during the tutoring sessions. Hilary was always on time and prepared for each lesson. Thanks again.

Hilary has been helping out a group of girls with SAT English preparation. She takes her time and is very patient. Kids are enjoying the class and making good progress. I'd definitely recommend Hilary.
Pam from Wexford, PA on 2/12/13
Hillary is patient. She is very helpful! She brings in lots of her own material which is helpful for my 6th and 3rd grader. She is competent of the subject areas -- math, grammar, social studies. She is a tremendous help for my daughter who is in advanced math -- pre algebra!
Maureen from Pittsburgh, PA on 2/11/13
Hilary has been really helpful with my daughter. she has really helped her to complete the large amount of homework that she receives in Pre-Algebra. My daughter is doing extremely well in this class thanks to Hilary.
