I am in the service business. I have a
great affinity for good service. And when I find
a company, who can not assist you with their
skillset, goes out of their way to find the right
kind of service for me and my family, I can't
help but give them 5 stars!!
Such was our experience with the Tutor Doctor....We have a son who has speech difficulties that are holding him back from advancing in his academics and training. We approached Rene of the Tutor Doctor to seek out a speech therapist/tutor to assist our son. Rene is a prince of a man and when he found that our request did not align with their service, he went out of his why to assist us in understanding what credentials and background the tutor would have in order to successfully implement a program that would benefit our son.
"Wow" is how I felt after talking with Rene....His insight and support were selfless and inspiring.
Our Son was struggling with Freshman Spanish
and math so we looked around at many other tutoring
companies and like the philosophy and attention the
Tutor Doctor gave us. We decided to give them a try
and it has really helped out son. They come right to
our house so it is very convenient for us and my son
get quiet personal attention. His grades are coming
up and he is now passing all subjects. His tutor has
also helped him with other subjects is he has a
question or two.
I would definitely recommend giving them a try. They are reasonably priced and effective.
I have found that it can be difficult for children in the area's of San Ramon, Alamo, and Danville to keep up with their classmates when they aren't involved in a Tutoring program. However, Tutor Doctor is not just for the children who are having difficulty but for those looking to excel in their academics as well. To not have your child involved with this great organization would certainly put them at a disadvantage. I highly recommend Tutor Doctor for any child whether they are having difficulties or not.
My fifth grader has trouble with test
taking. For the past few years we have worked with
her teachers and the school counselors which has
helped a bit. , CA
What we learned about my daughter's thought process (as she walks into the testing room) in the first report from her tutor has enabled us to begin to address some of her 'testing anxieties'.
I cannot be more grateful for this insight and the on-going help my daughter is receiving.

We love our tutor Jenna Scott. She is great at working on the curriculum that the kids cover on various subjects at school but she is also wonderful at bringing in her own material where she feels there needs to be more attention given.
Our girls and I give Jenna Scott a solid 10.
In addition, she is a pleasant person with a great attitude and superb patience!
I also want to add that it helps tremendously that she is young and stays relevant to their way of thinking.

The week has flown by but I wanted to let you know that I met with Gerardo and he is great! Bryce really responded well to him and I think they worked well together.

Tutor Doctor helped my daughter (5th grade) deal with some spelling struggles and understand concepts in a language she could really understand. Very reasonable pricing. The weekly updates from her tutor were spot-on. Wouldn't hesitate to use them again.

Tutor Doctor has been extremely helpful in finding our daughter a tutor who is fluent in Cantonese and Mandarin. Cheryl makes learning the language fun and exciting. I know Grace looks forward to her lessons with Cheryl, and can't wait to play a few games of Go Fish in Cantonese. Thank you for setting Grace up with a very patient, understanding and caring tutor. It's definitely a good match!
Thank-you so much for meeting with me and my daughter about her need for a math tutor. When I contacted you I was feeling quite desperate and your prompt response gave me quite a sense of relief. I was impressed that you were able to accommodate my schedule and meet with me the same day. In person, you were more impressive: intelligent, insightful, compassionate and helpful. You made my teenage daughter feel seen asking her about her own sense of her learning style and engaging her to imagine what would be most helpful for herself. After the meeting, my daughter had a sense of hopefulness that she hadn't had in sometime. Your understanding that what is needed in a good tutor is more than just command of the material to be studied, but also the tools to be able to connect with the student, made me feel that I had met somebody with a deep understanding of what education is really about. Thank-you for your help. All the best to you in growing your business and in your life.

There is no way Torie would have gotten an 86% on her Geometry final and a 90% on her research paper without Stacy's help. We are very grateful for you and her.

I really like working with Ryan. He has helped me a lot with my school work and makes me feel more comfortable and confident when I'm working on it. I trust him a lot and he is easy to talk to. I can talk to him about things I don't talk to other people about, and he gives me really good advice. He is very patient working with me, and is able to tell me how to do things in a way I can understand, which my teachers don't do all the time.
Chad's new tutor Amanda is awesome. They both work
well together. The second week she had a rule chart
made up. Chad's rules the 4th rule was smile. I
thought that was so cute. He likes the new attention
and route. Just want to let you know. Thanks so much
for your support.

Since Tutor Doctor hired a tutor for my 8th grade son, he has been eager to learn. He looks forward to having a one on one session to help him with his comprehension and a better understanding of his homework. I see that my son has much more self esteem and his attitude is much improved because his grades are much improved. Overall, I love that he is getting the kind of help he needs to get him through the difficulties of learning.

We are very happy with our decision to use Tutor Doctor.
Roxanne is friendly, the service we have received has been excellent and our tutor, Carrie, is great and very accommodating. Our daughter is more confident with her studies and her marks are improving. I appreciate the flexibility of our package and, it is a huge relief to not have to drive as they come to our house!
I would highly recommend Tutor Doctor.

Thank you to the Tutor Doctor for helping me, a
self-described math cripple to understand algebra! I
sought out professional help in my math class because
the help I was getting from so-called math whiz
friends just wasn't helping me learn. Working with
the teacher from the Tutor Doctor made all the
difference. In just a few weeks of two session per
week, I have gone from feeling hopeless and utterly
confused to a level of understanding in my course
work I feared I would never reach.
I will be taking upper Algebra and Chemistry next semester and will be counting on the Tutor Doctor to help me achieve the same results in those classes.
