I wanted to let you know that this is the first time we have had a tutor for our two children. What a positive experience! Katie has a very positive outlook and built a good rapport with the kids. They looked forward to her coming every week. I would like to continue with Katie in the future.

We really enjoyed meeting your French tutor. We felt very comfortable with him and he did an excellent job. I think we'll learn a lot with him. We definitely want to continue receiving your services.
Athens Tutors has made it possible for us to reach our goal of becoming fluent in French. As beginners, the thought of learning a new language was quite daunting. However, our tutor was very skilled in helping us build a foundation for which the rest of our lessons could be built on. We are very satisfied with the results so far, and we look forward to continuing towards our goal of learning French with Athens Tutors.

My daughter really benefited from your session together. She commented to me that she understands your way of explaining the material and felt much better after the first meeting. Thanks so much for your help!
Parent of a 9th Grader, North Oconee High School
I just want to let you know how pleased we are about our SAT tutor. She is very punctual and efficient. My son has improved greatly. I will always recommend Athens Tutors to anyone.
Parent of a Senior, Clarke Central High School
Athens Tutors really works to give you a great experience and make the most of your tutoring time. Chemistry is a difficult subject in college and my tutor helped me to understand it.
College Freshman, University of Georgia
I've been a straight C Math student all my life and was monumentally afraid of tackling the Quantitative section of the GRE. I was aided immeasurably in this regard through my work with Kristen. Her tireless enthusiasm and unwavering patience with my molasses-like learning curve helped me to prepare far more than I had originally hoped for. I went from scoring a 240 on the practice exam to a 620 on the real thing. Take that, Pythagoras!
College Graduate, University of Georgia
Katherine’s Algebra tutor is excellent and her grades have improved.
Parent of a College Sophomore, Gainesville State College
My eighth grade son was having a lot of difficulty understanding Math. I decided that there was no way I could help him, so we contacted Athens Tutors. I informed them of the my son's age, some of his problems, fears, etc. regarding math and testing. After some thought they had a young lady, Kristen, contact me about tutoring him. I arranged for her to come and tutor my son on his Final Exam in 8th grade Math. They hit it off immediately and Kristen tutored my son for a total of 3 hours, one hour per day, for this exam. Each day, my son would tell me, "Mom, I have never learned so much before from anyone, this is the first time I feel confident about taking a Math test". The happy ending is that he made a 92 on his final exam!!!!! YEAH!!!! Thanks to Kristen and Athens Tutors!!!!!
Parent of an 8th Grader, Oconee County Middle School
What an amazing difference Josh made for my son!! He went from failing AP Calculus to straight A's on all his homework and tests the last several months… Josh helped him turn it around almost immediately…I only wish we had known about Athens Tutors sooner.
Parent of a 12th Grader, Westminster Christian Academy
Thanks and this is working out great! My daughter says that she is learning some things that she should have learned a long time ago and really likes working with her SAT tutor.
Parent of a 12th Grader, Salem High School
"I just don't think I could've chosen a better tutor if I'd done it personally. Amanda showed up on time and was so genuine that my son wasn't intimidated; indeed, he was motivated to please her. She is a natural educator (as opposed to 'teacher')....In all, I would not hesitate to recommend your services. Please use me as a reference if you choose to."
June, Parent of High School Senior
"I learned how to be smart when taking the SAT—how to identify the hard questions and to know what to look for when answering each kind of question. I loved my tutor! He was funny and not boring like my previous tutor. I believe studying should be fun."
Stephanie, High School Junior
"I learned so much. My grammar improved greatly, and it shows on my SAT score and in my school work. My grammar assignments at school are now easier to me. My tutor was funny and very smart."
Kris, High School Senior
"My daughter just checked her updated
SAT scores online. Her overall score improved
by 160 points. I'd say you were very successful
in your efforts to teach her. Thank you sooo
much for your time and talents. I think these
improvements will mean that she can attend
any of those schools that she's been considering."
Sheila, Parent of a High School Senior
"We were very pleased with Victor's work. Sam improved his SAT score about 180 points. Victor definitely kept his end of the bargain. He was prompt, struck the right balance of friendliness and business. Obviously he is highly competent."
James, Parent of a High School Senior
"Working with my tutor was a great learning experience.
He taught me that the SAT is not just a test of
knowledge, but also one of preparation. He also taught
me test taking strategies. Without these strategies I
do not believe I could have done as well on my test.
Working with him was well worth my time."
Stacy, High School Senior
"I am a mathematics instructional coach with DeKalb County Schools and I have 18 years experience in the school system teaching Middle School and High School mathematics. The reason I went hired a tutor is because I wanted my daughter to have the experience of working with someone else and of course time. I am working on my doctorate and I don't have time for anything else. Desirea has enjoyed all of her tutors and they have really helped her to be successful in her AP classes. She was very excited with the match that you gave her with Jenn. She and Desirae get along well and Desirae says that she enjoys her style of tutoring."
Deborah, Parent of a High School Senior
"My tutor has taken me from horribly organized and
poorly planned papers that received B's and C's
in my Emory writing classes to A's in almost all
of my writing assignments. Now I am the student
who receives 'Excellent work!' 'Well thought out,'
and 'Can't wait to read more!' comments from my
professors. My tutor helped me become a better,
more confident writer by working with me one on
one until I understood why and how I should change
my writings. Thank you!"
Hilary, College Sophomore, Chemistry Major
"Thank you, Tom did an amazing job with Rachael.

Tanya, Parent of a 7th Grader
We were very pleased with the service and the tutor. Lindsay's [SAT] score went up 100 points, due mostly to the tutor....I think that this type of service is of much more value than a classroom setting, at least for our child.

her understand it more comprehensively.”
Tonya, Parent of a High School Sophomore
"I just completed my first
semester of graduate school. I received my bachelors
degree just over ten years ago, so you can imagine
that when it came time to write, I was feeling a bit
rusty. I'm really pleased with the grades I received
on my papers and the final grade in the course. I
don't believe the outcome would have been the same if
wasn't for the excellent, high caliber instruction
that I received from my tutor. Thanks and I'll be
needing you next semester!"
Brooks, First Year Graduate Student
Amanda was terrific - we would like to keep her "on call" for over the summer. She was always on time and very knowledgeable in the subject areas. Jessica now has a better understanding of how to approach the SAT. We would highly recommend Amanda.
Diane, Parent of a High School Junior

Terry, Parent of a College Student

way of mapping out and explaining concepts. Aside from
academics, I found him very approachable and friendly.
Overall, a very effective and concerned educator."
