Testimonials

Annette

Our tutor has taught our son to think beyond the textbook and apply thoughtful and meaningful methods to his writing and comprehension skills. She is patient and understands how to navigate through learning roadblocks. Also, she has pride of ownership and is very focused on achieving results. I feel confident that she has given my son the necessary tools to foster a desire for learning. She has also enhanced his ability to think and process knowledge independently. She truly loves to work with students and it shows.

Danielle has tutored our son Alex through two different standardized tests. First, for high school and now for boarding school, so we have known her for several years. She was highly recommended to us by a good friend. I have to say that, number one; our son likes working with Danielle because she is a cool, nice person- which is half the battle. Also, Alex's test scores have really improved, and of course, that is the proof right there! It has been incredibly helpful for him to be able to practice these tests with somebody who is really good at identifying where the weaknesses are. It has been really great to have her!

My son Quinn is nine years old, and has been working with Danielle for four to five months, preparing for the ISEE test. It has been a great experience for him. He had to learn a lot of new material and it has gone extremely smoothly! Danielle's explanations have been great for him and saved me from arguing with him about doing his homework and extra test preparation. I would highly recommend Danielle and her company for anyone looking for a tutor!

Charlie

I am writing to let you know that I have indeed heard from schools, in fact, I've heard from all of my schools. It is my pleasure to inform you that I have been accepted at Friends Seminary, LREI, Berkeley Carroll, Calhoun, and Rudolf Steiner, and I have been wait listed at Fieldston. This is great news, of course, for me, but I would like you to know I could not have done it without your help. Thank you so much!

I am so grateful for the support you offered Charlie. Thanks to Competitive Advantage he was able to test with a deeper understanding of the material, giving him the confidence to improve his scores across the board. We are delighted to report that he was accepted to five of the six schools to which he applied (waitlisted for the sixth), and will be attending our first choice, Friends Seminary. If ever we need help in the future or should someone ask for a recommendation, I will not hesitate to contact Competitive Advantage.

My daughter Emily has been working with Danielle, from Competitive Advantage, for about six weeks and it has been an amazing experience. Emily has shown incredible growth in her math. She has confidence and knows what she is doing! We will be using her for fourth grade because it has just been amazing! She walks in the door every time with a huge smile on her face, ready to go. She calls and checks in, her emails are incredible, the support and the care that we get from her has been phenomenal. If you ever need any help for your child, I highly recommend Competitive Advantage!

Competitive Advantage has been tutoring my six-year-old son in reading skills for the past six months. From the moment my son met his tutor, he was fully engaged, challenged, excited, and happy to 'work.' Our tutor's approach was friendly, inspiring, and thoroughly enjoyable. She was punctual and responsible with her appointments. Additionally she reports my son's progress with explanations of how and what she is doing. Most of all, my child is happy and excited to see her. He derives pleasure and learning from his tutorial sessions. He has been excited about his learning, and for this we are very grateful.
