Outstanding Tutor

I would like to recommend Mindy as an effective tutor for students at various educational levels. She has been of tremendous assistance to me as I pursued my work as a Ph.D student. Mindy displays keen skills in proof-reading and editing papers and documents. She possesses a wealth of knowledge about the computer and other online programs and tools that assist and guide students in their work. She is always available to provide assistance when needed. An outstanding quality about her is that she shows interest in her students’ success. I would certainly recommend her as an excellent tutor.

Marcia, 1 lesson with Mindy

Knowledgeable and Patient

Mindy was very helpful and patient. She gave me time to attempt each task. She arrived to our session well prepared. Mindy gave me a pretest to determine my strengths and weaknesses. She broke down activities as I had questions in an appropriate manner. I learned a lot about what I needed to do in order to be a better writer. I would recommend her to anyone who needs a literacy tutor.

Marsha, 1 lesson with Mindy

Knowledgeable and patient tutor

Based on what my daughter said, Mindy was great explaining the requirements for ACT reading. Patient and to the point. This was the first lesson, however, I believe that by creating a good relationship with my daughter it will influence the results. Thanks Mindy.

Superb quality tutoring service

Ms. Mindy P. has been tutoring my 11th grader in English since August 2016. She is great at editing my daughter's written assignments and provides helpful insight on how to make improvements. My daughter earned an "A" on her first college English 101 course thanks to her assistance. I highly recommend Mindy P. as an English tutor to anyone because she is effective, punctual, and efficient.

Toni, 4 lessons with Mindy

Great Experience

We contacted Mindy to help our son preparing for his ACT and needed help preparing for it. She was very good with my son and helping him stay focused and on track. He was able to get a 28 on his ACT reading. Would definitely recommend her.

Ann, 15 lessons with Mindy

Excellent dissertation editing

After at least ten or more dissertation editors, I found Mindy. Prior to her editing, work was shoddy and pricey at $100 an hour or more (standard price for dissertation editing). Mindy is prompt, efficient, creative and provided better editing than all of the PhD editors that I had consulted. Her work is outstanding! My Mentor was pleased and the dissertation committee passed my work with only minor recommendations regarding research (grammar, formatting was excellent). Mindy also assisted with my defense preparation.

Peppie, 1 lesson with Mindy

Great tutor!

Today she needed to asses Tyler which I think she did accurately. Hopefully, with her information she can assist Tyler in strengthening his weaknesses.

Jen, 9 lessons with Mindy

Great teacher, very patient

Mindy really helped me with my comprehension. I am now able to answer questions without having to reread the entire story which wasted time. I'm really happy she could teach me the scanning technique.

Darien, 9 lessons with Mindy

Great Teacher

Miss Mindy is very caring, very knowlegeable and is able to break the barriers to get the best out of my son. For the first time, I noticed that my son is very focus on his reading/writing, he looks forward to his tutoring session
