“My daughter worked with a great math tutor. Laurie Jaffe was patient and knowledgeable, and she had a great ability to break down material into simpler concepts, making them easy to understand. Her teaching style is engaging and interactive, with plenty of examples and real-world applications to help solidify the concepts. For example, she brought a cake to cut up (and eat of course) when teaching my daughter fractions! I highly recommend!” – S.Y., Needham

Dave Thompson was fantastic in getting my son ready for the ISEE. He covered all the content in a stress-free and fun approach. My son saw a meaningful jump in his scores as a result. I have made a point to recommend Dave to several people since our time with Dave. My son was accepted into all of the schools that he applied to and ended up choosing The Roxbury Latin School. Dave will always be in our hearts! Thank you Dave.

I write this recommendation with great pleasure. Greg Conklin has tutored my son in High School Biology for several semesters and I am very pleased with the progress he is making. My son has learning difficulties and attention challenges. Greg has worked through them, kindly, and with great patience. I also like the fact that he uses a lot of different materials – starting with the Biology textbook, to using flashcards, quizzes, and several other online resources to help him memorize the course material. Whenever his attention wanders, Greg has switched tactics to use a different teaching method so he remains attentive and engrossed. My kid’s school teacher has asked me more than once to have me record a video of Greg tutoring so they can utilize some of the same methods at school! Thank you very much for helping him pass the required Biology course. Your help is truly appreciated.

Alexandra was super communicative and made the process of finding a tutor so quick and simple. She spent time listening about my daughter’s education, tutoring needs and personality and Wow! she really chose the perfect tutor for her. My daughter was reticent to have a tutor, but from the moment David Thompson walked in the door, she was smiling and excited to learn. Her first comment when he left was that he was funny and super, super smart! In fact, she now looks forward to his weekly tutoring visits; the one day she had to do a zoom session she commented that she missed him being in person. He makes her laugh and makes learning fun, which is a true gift that he has, yet he is extremely professional and communicative. The entire experience went well beyond the expectations of my husband and I!

“We had wonderful experience working with Boston Tutoring Services and Mike McDavid
. Alexandra was quick and professional, she found the right fit for our kids. When our son did not connect with one of the tutors, she quickly found a replacement and refunded us for the session.
We felt we always had the support when we needed it without any pressure to purchase more lessons or a bigger package.”

It was incredibly easy to set up a time that worked for both me (a college student) and the tutor. I was a bit nervous at first but I was able to express which units/topics I had trouble with; and although I was not the best at describing exactly what my thought process was it was always resolved in a way that I could understand.

“We just finished up with Nicole Tetreault today. We had to reschedule a few times (always on my end!) and she was so accommodating and gracious about it. My son feels so much more confident with Spanish. He was really in limbo but he feels more comfortable now. We are very grateful for all her efforts. She was also so pleasant and made it easy for my son to relax and really take in the info! Thanks for your help with this!”

My great thanks and appreciation to David Thompson from BTS for preparing my daughter for a private school exam (ISEE) and an interview.
While we started the process late and had not much time before the deadlines, David worked with us to create a plan for test preparation and interview. The sessions were planned and conveyed in a way to make the most of tutoring time with guidance and structure for self-study between the sessions. The materials were well organized. And it all took place online. David also was very engaging and motivating.
As a result, my daughter was confident to talk during the interview and was able to improve significantly in the testing scores compared to practice tests.
I highly recommend David’s services.

“I wanted to send my thanks for sending David Thompson along to tutor my daughter. He was very flexible with meeting as my daughter’s schedule can be a bit crazy and he worked at her pace so she wasn’t getting overwhelmed. Finding out that there really isn’t going to be an ISEE test [due to Covid-19] let us do some interview prep and he really did a great job getting her to talk and add pertinent information and help her stand out. She is very reserved and she ended up feeling very comfortable and doing a great job in her interviews. Again, we appreciate everything he did and couldn’t recommend him more!”

We are happy with David Thompson in correcting our essays. Being the first immigrant and bad at English, his help really makes a difference! I just found that this website does not allow me to leave 5 stars. He definitely is the 5-star tutor.
Thank you, Dave
