“EducationWise was very responsive to our requests”
Our tutor was a great fit for tutoring my daughter in Mathematique 20. EducationWise was very responsive to our specific requests and matched my daughter with a tutor who was both bilingual and very familiar with the new math curriculum. The tutoring was very helpful and my daughter finished the course with a good grade.
“Our tutor helped tremendously”
Samantha was struggling with her Grade 8 Math and her math teacher in school was not helpful at all. EducationWise recommended one of their tutors to us. It was a good match, and the tutor helped Samantha tremendously with her math. Her grades improved as well as her confidence in her ability to work independently. I would highly recommend EducationWise.
“We cannot say enough good things about her”
Charlie has done well with his tutor. He really likes her and has worked well with her. We cannot say enough good things about her. We are very fortunate that he was able to have her as his tutor. It has helped Charlie a lot.
“She taught him the skills he needed”
Our tutor brought Ryan’s reading up several levels within a very short period. She taught him the skills he needed to sound out the words and he actually tries now rather than saying “it’s too hard” and quitting. I think this was very instrumental in making him feel confident. He is starting out this New Year with a very positive attitude.
“Professional, knowledgeable, and engaging”
The tutor was excellent! She gave our son the confidence and advice he needed to succeed in his Calculus course. Through her mentorship, Josh was able attain his scholastic goals. Thank you EducationWise for sending a tutor who was professional, knowledgeable, and engaging. Josh is now at University of Toronto at the Daniel School of Architecture.
“The quality has been excellent”
We are very happy with the tutors that EducationWise has provided. The quality has been excellent.
“The tutors really care”
I would like to thank EducationWise for all their help and caring while tutoring our son. Their tutors are very good and really care about a good outcome for the people they help. I would recommend them in the future and plan on using them again as our son continues with his education.
“She increased my daughter’s confidence”
I just wanted to let you know what a great pick the tutor was for my daughter. She increased my daughter’s confidence and abilities. When Laura wrote the Math 20 exam today, she felt very good about it. Thank you again!
“My son now has a positive attitude towards math”
My son needed help with elementary math. The tutor was a university student and he helped my son a lot. My son’s grades improved as well as his confidence in his ability to work independently. We have been with EducationWise ever since and they are always able to accommodate our schedule. My son now has a positive attitude about math.
My son struggled with math concepts and lack the confidence to complete math homework. Nightly math homework was a battle, and resulted in frustration. EducationWise was great! They found the right tutor for my son. There has been a dramatic improvement with help from our tutor extraordinaire. My son is confident, and essentially enjoys math.
