Our 13-year old son has been working with Adrianne for the past few months. She has been consistently punctual, well-organized, reliable, knowledgeable, and patient. We plan to continue working with Adrianne through the summer and into next school year. Spanish is not our son's favorite subject, but he has been far more focused and gotten better results since working with Adrianne. We would recommend her without hesitation. (Our dog likes her, too.)
Adrienne is a connector. In one session she relieved some apprehensions in my 9th grade daughter and breathed fresh life into her grueling Algebra studies. I'd recommmend her to anyone seeking for a qualified, capable, and flexible tutor.
Adrienne is a very knowledgeable and patient tutor. It has been over six years since I've had to practice algebra or geometry, so I was a bit nervous about studying for the GRE. Adrienne was able to guide me through the basics during our first meeting and even recommended a couple great math apps to help build up my skills throughout the week.
What else can a say.... she is a true superstar in teaching gmat principals!Not only is very thorough in her method diligence but also great at breaking things down. Her skill-set would be ideal for anyone fortunate enough to work with her.
Adrianne was great to work with. Her insight was very valuable, having already gone through the process of applying to bschool herself.
Adrianne was an excellent tutor for my daughter. She was very patient and explained the math problems in a way that was easy for her to understand. She gave my daughter a lot of confidence for her up coming test!
Adrianne is a lovely tutor, very easy-going but at the same time very direct and gets the job done. She really listened to my daughter's needs and concerns and addressed them specifically. She was very flexible about our sometimes changing schedule and adjusted sessions as needed when she could. Overall an excellent experience, we highly recommend Adrianne, you won't be disappointed!
She setup the time for lesson twice this week and did not show up. She was 20 minute late for the first lesson.
In my defense, I could not arrive at the lesson through no fault of my own. I explained this to the client and offered a free lesson in exchange.
I will also note that this is the only one of my many clients who has provided negative feedback.
In most cases, tutors gain approval in a subject by passing a proficiency exam. For some subject areas, like music and art, tutors submit written requests to demonstrate their proficiency to potential students. If a tutor is interested but not yet approved in a subject, the subject will appear in non-bold font. Tutors need to be approved in a subject prior to beginning lessons.
I have worked with many second-language learners in a variety of subjects, including ESL. I worked as a full-time teacher of English as a second language for two years.
I studied Russian in college and I spent more than two years living and working in Russia, where I spoke Russian on a daily basis. I love this complex, fascinating language and would be happy to teach it to you!
I trained as a professional SAT tutor, and I have extensive experience working with SAT students of all backgrounds and abilities.
