Click the Thumbtack icon above to see reviews on the Thumbtack website from some of our clients. Below are some samples of what some of our clients have had to say about our service and our tutors that were sent directly to the director, Tim Gasser.

From a parent of two students who took English lessons:   Thank you for your time and patience!  My boys like Julie very much.  She's a very good tutor.  Thank you for your service!

From a student at Gunn High School, Palo Alto:
Thank you so much for helping me this year with both chemistry and geometry. Thanks to you I have gotten good grades in both those classes, and I understood the material. If I need any help next year, I will be sure to call.


From a parent in San Carlos: My son kept on track because of tutoring and passed the Computer Science class.  We will recommend your service to others.


From the parent of a Gunn High student in Palo Alto: I want to thank you for all the help you have provided to Annie in math (and science) over the years.  Thank you also for your understanding and support of Annie this year - I appreciate it greatly.


From a parent living on Stanford campus: I just want to add a little note to let you know how pleased I was with Julie's tutoring of Sharon. She made all the difference in the world, teaching her not only how and what to learn but also, and most importantly, to love learning. (These are Sharon's own words). We hope to continue with her when the need arises again. In the meantime, please give her our heartfelt thanks.


From a parent in Palo Alto: Thank you for all your help. Daniel really enjoys working with Julie.


From another parent in Palo Alto: We could not have had a better tutor! Thank you ever so much for your help and kindness.


From the parent of a middle school student in Millbrae: School is back in the end of August. We would love to keep Brian for Jason's tutor in the eighth grade. Thank you for your help and support this year.


Another comment from the same parent a year later: Brian, the tutor, is really great. Thank you for his services. Jason really likes him.


From the parent of a Palo Alto High student: Stuart's writing has improved greatly. He is doing very well in his English class and he felt that his essay on the SAT yesterday was stronger than his last test.  Thanks.


Another later report from the same parent: Stuart just received his June SAT scores. His Writing score went up dramatically.


From the parent of a Palo Alto student: Raji has been wonderful to have around as a tutor. We're looking forward to a new year!


From the parent of a Palo Alto math student: Brian is dyslexic, and Raji has been able to use different ways to explain problems, verbally and visually. She is very sensitive to his specific learning needs.


From an adult student learning Spanish: Thank you so much for being such an excellent teacher. I had no idea I could learn as much as I have in such a short time, and that is because of you. God made you a teacher, and it is an inspiration to see how dedicated you are to your calling and how you truly care about your students. You inspire me!


From an adult nursing student: Thank you for your help. I passed my exam at work. Please tell Richard thanks also. He is a very knowledgeable. I would recommend your service to anyone.
