What Parents Say:

The Chicago Home Tutor has had a transformative effect on our son's reading and writing ability over a really short period of time. Our tutor is fun, approachable and our son loves her classes. He learns by playing and he is proud to show us his progress. She details improvements and compares our child to the average at his age. It's invaluable to know where he stands and how he's doing great. I wouldn't hesitate to recommend The Chicago Home Tutor to every parent seeking for a top class tutor.

The Chicago Tutor was a wonderful gift during a challenging time for my daughter. The whole process worked marvelously smoothly. Ryan was terrific - he kept my daughter motivated and feeling secure. He was also responsive to changes when they became necessary. And he could teach the material well. We couldn't have asked for anything more!

Our tutor is an excellent and engaging tutor. She works with my 7 year old daughter on math concepts and is very effective. My daughter actually looks forward to working with her. She is very conscientious and professional; she is always prepared with materials and has multiple ways of approaching the subject. I would highly recommend the Chicago Home Tutor to anyone in need of a tutor.

I am so happy with the Chicago Home Tutor. You can tell our tutor, Laura, has prepared every class meticulously and knows perfectly what each student needs. My son has improved a lot with her help, and he smiles every time I tell him that he will be seeing Ms. R.
