“She is super smart and relates well to kids. My boys love her. She is kind and thoughtful.  She loves math and sometimes the kids have her keep explaining/doing (instead of them having to struggle with the problem). She takes feedback well and is willing to adapt based on what is requested/needed. She’s a great teacher.” -J

Testimonials:

 
We loved the tutor that Schuyler provided and hope to continue to work Jeremy next school year. He developed three different curriculums and met with our girls over Zoom, addressing each of their learning needs individually. After a few sessions, we checked with our girls and all of them LOVED Jeremy and how effective and helpful he was. –Allison

Testimonials:

 
It’s going great…  works well with Tracey.  She’s patient and explains things in a manner he can understand.
 
 
Our girls are now in high school and the two oldest were taking AP Biology with the “Stay Home” order was enacted. They really wanted to do well on the AP test and wanted someone who could help reinforce what they had already learned and move them forward to prepare well for the test. Schuyler connected us with Tracey who met with our daughters once a week until the AP test. She reviewed material, taught and assisted with new material and helped them feel confident going into the AP test. With all the uncertainty around schooling these past few months, the tutors that Schuyler has connected us with have been invaluable. –Allison

Testimonials:

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

    review rating 5  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.

    review rating 5  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.

    review rating 5  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.

    review rating 5  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!
