Excellent tutor

Tonia is an excellent tutor who is very knowledgeable and conveys her knowledge of complex material in a manner easily understandable. Highly recommended.

Jun, 34 lessons with Tonia

Amazing Tutor!

I only worked with Tonia last year for about a month, but in that time my SAT scores went from 590 (reading), 580 (math), and 590 (writing) from the June SAT, to a 680 (reading), 630 (math), and 650 (writing) from the October SAT! I now attend one of my top choice colleges where I was admitted early action and am very satisfied with my SAT results. Tonia helped me understand concepts with clear methods that made me much more prepared for the test. She is an amazing tutor.

Excellent Tutor

Tonia is thorough, extremely patient, and very knowledgeable. She tutored my daughter in trigonometry which she was failing in the beginning of the school year and after one session she was able to clear up her misconceptions and help her bring her grade up significantly. In addition to tutoring, she also emailed my daughter some online trigonometry links which helped her to study for her test on her own. She is also very accommodating with her tutoring schedule.

Karen, 3 lessons with Tonia

Very responsive and easy approach, great for imparting knowledge.

Tonia is extremely resourceful and able to relate very well to teens. Her extensive knowledge and her superb preparation that she brings to the lesson is critical to success with her students.

Yvo, 22 lessons with Tonia

Great tutor

We had a great experience with Tonia. She's patient and effective. She was able to help my son increase his Critical Reading score by 110 points in only 5 weeks.
