great teacher

Hilary helped me out remembering all I had forgotten over the years. Highly recommend Hilary for all of your tuition needs.

Colin, 1 lesson with Hilary

Awesome Teacher!

I have really enjoyed hearing about all the hard work you have been putting in with my son! This is exactly what we wanted. He will be able to take all the techniques and study skills back to school with him this fall.

Kim, 5 lessons with Hilary

Excellent tutor!

Very flexible with our busy schedules. Both my children are tutored by Hilary, and have both improved significantly on their ACT test scores! She is very well versed in all ACT subjects and test taking skills. My kids are polar opposites, and she adjusts her tutoring methods to their specific needs. Highly recommended!

Michele, 10 lessons with Hilary

Great tutor!

I met with Hilary three times to study for the Praxis: Social Sciences content exam. We had three 60 minute sessions, which were fabulous. She offered new ways for me to study and learn the information. She also gave me great test-taking skills to help me relax the day of the exam. I felt better prepared and relaxed on the day of the exam. I was really in need of new study strategies when I met with Hilary and she exceeded every expectation! She's fantastic. My overall score raised by 4 points after three of my tutoring sessions. I would highly recommend hiring Hilary as a tutor. Such a sweet person, very professional, and always on time!

Knowledgeable of Material

Hilary was very professional and knowledgeable of the material we requested her to tutor our daughter on for the high school graduation exam. She made our daughter feel more confident about testing and Hilary only had a short period of time to work with her. Being that we were short on time; Hilary still came up with a teaching plan that worked out great. Hilary's study method was helpful and it assisted our daughter in better comprehending the required material. She was given some great study tips and test taking tips to prepare for the test. We would confidently recommend her to anyone who is seeking to find an excellent tutor.
