Lyra comes to the Seattle Tutoring Services team by way of the Macalester College. There, she studied acting while taking extensive math and science courework. With years of experience ranging from precalculus to ACT prep and AP Chemistry, she offers a wide skill set to students.
…She was always very professional, and again, she knew her stuff like the back of her hand, did a ton of preparation for sessions, knew how to teach it, took on lots of kids, everyone loved her, really an excellent tutor.
…She tutored SAT and ACT, SSAT, ISEE, chemistry, biology, most maths, including precalc, essay writing, college application essays, and probably another thing or two I’m forgetting. She was great at pretty much everything I asked her to do.
…Lyra was calm and direct, and they worked well together. She is bright and knew the material and did not try to overpower Kit or make her feel inadequate. For us, that was what made the teacher/ student relationship work.

Schuyler graduated with a B.S. in Aquatic and Fishery Sciences in 2009, graduating with college honors and receiving A’s in all math coursework, including three quarters of calculus. While a full time student, he tutored student athletes and middle school students. After graduating, he worked as a biologist on a number of research projects with Montana State, NOAA, the EPA and the Washington Dept. of Ecology.
For the past few years he’s been sidelined from his biologist due to health issues. Recently, Schuyler volunteered for Catholic Community Services as part of the Youth Tutoring Program and currently manages tutors in the Seattle area. Schuyler enjoys biology and has been published in Ecosphere.
Schuyler is a thorough, effective math tutor. He’s patient and communicates well with our child, without being condescending. He’s been flexible to meet our scheduling needs. On his own initiative, Schuyler has emailed supplementary lessons for additional practice. After tutoring sessions, our son would tell us that Schuyler was very helpful. We recommend him! –Brian
Schuyler was a great tutor for my son. He was very flexible with my son schedule and learning style. He often emailed practice assignments based on what he was being taught in class. Schuyler is very positive and was able to recognize the gaps in my sons learning. I would highly recommend Schuyler if you are looking for an excellent math tutor. ~Linda
Used them for three years. Always very helpful and receptive to our students needs. Very highly recommended!
My daughter who was taking Physics as a senior in high school wrote this: Jeremy's deep understanding and excitement on the topic created a good learning environment. He was very welcoming to help me with the subject which in turn made me comfortable to ask as many questions as needed. Very good tutor and helped my grade in the class a ton!
Great experience! Quick response to a last-minute request for calculus help. Jeremy was great at quickly understanding where I was and clearly explained the concepts. I will definitely call them again.
Seattle Tutoring services helped me get into calculus, my first math class in 10 years. After all my own independent review using online courses like Khan Academy it was helpful that I get brought up to speed with the help of someone who could help me focus on what I needed to learn to be best prepared for calculus. In my calculus class I was just as well equipped as students who had taken math the previous quarter and finished as one of the top students in the class. Follow up support, scholarship recommendations and educational advice were unexpected and generous support that continued after. Not necessarily a part of the tutoring service but a benefit of working with an educator passionate about helping their students.
They combined the best of both worlds -- convenience and ease of using technology, and caring and thoughtful interpersonal skills -- to help my student get over a big hump and the anxiety that accompanied. We were in a time crunch and reached out, with a pretty specific subject need, and I knew that the wrong match between tutor and students could make things worse. I explained my student's situation in an email, and heard back promptly and with detail -- not just explaining how to get started, and different service delivery options, but giving me background on personality and experience from a few different tutors so that I could figure out the best "match" for our situation. I was really impressed. And then highly impressed with the ACTUAL tutoring and tutor. The mental block was eased, the snag was figured out and my student was back on track. It set a positive stage for starting high school, knowing that if there was a wrinkle, my student could get through it and knew the steps to self-advocate and work the problem. I've recommended them several times already, and will continue to do so. I think we'll be setting up regular check-in appts this year in a subject or two - so convenient that student can discuss with tutor while at home and in the evenings after sports.
