Success stories

Real stories from real people

Since 2005, Wyzant has provided a way for people to learn any subject in a way that works for them.

Noreen F.

5 lessons

When it came time for the lesson his personality brought out the best in our student. He kept switching topics to keep interest and even used music which really helped to energize and engage a conversation in English. Also, Myles has a huge infectious laugh that made mistakes no big deal and put our student at ease because this was supposed to be a fun way to learn English. We highly recommend Myles and will be utilizing him for several more lessons.
Janice N.

177 lessons

I spoke with Kaye and she started tutoring him about 6 weeks ago, two to three times a week. My son is now reading, writing sentences, and counting at a very fast pace. Most important, he has high self esteem since he is learning and understanding. She has given me hope for my son, when for years, the school system has passed him through labeled special needs. He loves his sessions with Kaye.I would highly recommend her at any age level of tutoring needs.
Sylvia S.

179 lessons

Lastly and most importantly, our daughter has made progress academically as evidenced by improvement in report cards since Allison started working with her. We highly recommend her for not only special needs children but typical children who find math, reading or writing challenging.
