Excellent And Great Tutor
Heidi B. is a highly qualified SAT tutor. From what I saw with my daughter, Heidi helped her in all the areas she was struggling with and gave her nonstop practice with her weaker skills such as writing and reading comprehension. My daughter's time with Heidi helped dramatically increase my her reading and writing. I would highly recommend Heidi B. as an SAT English tutor for any determined student looking to improve his/her score. Again on scale of 1 to 10, she would be 10 plus.Nilesh, 8 lessons with Heidi
It has truly been a blessing to work with Heidi B.
I have worked with a number of tutors, but Heidi has completely transformed my education. I have been working with Heidi for almost a year now. She is a natural teacher, extremely patient, full of energy, and very determined. I have found a lot of tutors to be disinterested and genuinely lack the skills necessary for students to succeed. Heidi has been very committed to my education and always there for me when I needed her help. She has worked with me on many subjects and I have yet to find a subject she can't do. Many tutors will just go by the book and not adapt to the students learning style. She is easy to work with and able to evolve with her students needs .Heidi is a great tutor if you want someone who can sincerely teach, but don't want your eyes to glaze over in the process.Jared, 303 lessons with Heidi
Heidi is amazing. She analyzed my writing and reading skills and developed a curriculum to improve my skills. My writing skills have improved greatly since working with Heidi. I feel more confident writing emails, policies, and college essays. I enjoy learning from her and look forward to each session.Anonymous, 6 lessons with Heidi
Heidi has been outstanding to deal with, she responds to you immediately and gets right down to business. She had a deep compassion for what she does and really shows she cares. I would highly recommend her.Stephanie, 2 lessons with Heidi
Teaches to student level while still challenging
Heidi is a very effective tutor, and is obviously not only fully competent in the English/writing subject matters, but also demonstrates that she actually knows how to teach to the individual! More so than nearly any teacher that my 8th grade son has ever had, Heidi took the time to get to know him, and tries to incorporate his interests in her examples. She makes sense of standardized testing, for both myself and my son, and instructs him in ways to become more successful on essential tests. She is flexible, energetic, and entertaining. The homework she gives is pertinent and helpful, and my son enjoys her visits (as much as any 8th grade boy can enjoy extracurricular schoolwork!)Rebecca, 3 lessons with Heidi
Responsive - likeable - knowledgeable!
My initial request to Heidi was met with an immediate response. I was looking for a tutor for my granddaughter. We talked on the phone and in ten minutes she gave me more helpful information than I've had in 8 months of trying to navigate the college admissions process. My granddaughter called me after her first tutoring session with Heidi. It has been a long time since I've heard her so excited. Heidi gave her direction, motivation, understanding, and a great action plan. I feel like my granddaughter has a partner who is there to help her reach her potential. I was also very impressed that Heidi gave me a complete summary of their tutoring session. I so appreciate that. I give Heidi two thumbs up!!Sue, 12 lessons with Heidi
There is only one word in this whole wide world that I can think of that perfectly describes Heidi B...Amazing!Ricky, 24 lessons with Heidi
Heidi is one of those special teachers, who is patient, organized, and able to quickly assess individual learning style. She was able to assert herself as a serious teacher, yet engage my child with her warmth and humor.Sheela, 8 lessons with Heidi
