reviewpositive“The Tutoring Solution has been a god send for us. My son hates Math, and we were having constant battles over it. I thought it was best to get a tutor, and it turned out to be the best idea I’ve ever had. The tutors at the Tutoring Solution are very well versed in the subjects you need help with and very patient and kind. I was amazed at how well they handled my son in Math and English. He went from a “D” to an “A” all on his own initiative with the help of these tutors. I don’t know where Cynthia gets these tutors, but they are excellent. Also, one tutor Rocio even came out on Sundays when we needed her. I thought that was wonderful. Another good thing that I liked, is that they come to your home. It was very convenient, and great to be in our home setting.”

– Teri Heinssen

Teri Heinssen’s son, James, has been receiving tutoring with us since September 2012. We have worked with James on a variety of subjects, from statistics, to essay composition, and more. James has been a wonderful student to work with. In July 2014, we selected James as our Student of the Month. We are excited to continue working with James and seeing him achieve all his goals.

Screen Shot 2015-07-13 at 9.10.09 PMOur main goal at The Tutoring Solution is to provide resources for students to learn and excel in school; whether it be through face-to-face tutoring, online tutoring, educational blogs, scholarships, or free video lessons. We always look for ways to help students live up to their full potential.

We decided that we would utilize one of our best resources, our tutors, in a way that would make them available to more students. Therefore, we asked our tutors, who were open to creating videos, to create video lessons on topics they are experts in and that they find students typically struggle with. We hope to compile videos on topics ranging from all levels of math, science, English, history, languages, and much more. Make sure to check back regularly for new videos.

The subjects that will be covered are:

The Tutoring Solution's June Student of the Month - Natalie Henderson

The Tutoring Solution’s June Student of the Month – Natalie Henderson

For the month of June 2015, we selected Natalie Henderson as our Student of the Month. Natalie receives her tutoring in Chino Hills. She will be starting the 12th grade, in the fall, at Chino Hills High School. We have been working with Natalie since early March 2015. She worked with our tutor Karen, to help improve her understanding of Algebra II. Natalie has been such a wonderful student to work with.

We first began working with Natalie in early March of this year. Marion and Natalie reached out to us for help because they realized that if they didn’t, Natalie was in danger of failing her Algebra II class. Marion said, “After receiving a “D” on the first semester report card of her junior year in Algebra 2, and starting off the second semester with yet another “D”, we realized we needed more help; quickly”. They sought out help and our company was referred to them by a friend. After learning a bit more about Natalie’s tutoring needs, we decided to pair her up with Karen, because we knew Karen was a patient and kind tutor and that she excelled in higher level math. They seemed to be a great match; Karen and Natalie instantly hit it off.

Marion described her experience with Karen as being a pleasant one. She said, “Karen was always prompt and very friendly. She was flexible enough to keep up with our crazy schedule, sometimes even coming to our home in the evening, for tutoring, on very short notice”. Similarly, Karen too enjoyed working with Natalie and Marion. She described Natalie as being “a passionate, determined, and disciplined student on and off the court”. They both worked well together, because they shared a common goal, which was to help Natalie excell in Algebra II in order to improve her grade and make sure she was able to continue taking part in her high school’s basketball team.

Karen described Natalie as a bright student who is fun and easy to work with. Karen credits Natalie’s improved understanding to her ability to ask questions when she was unsure about something. Similarly, Marion described Natalie as a “good student, with A’s and B’s usually”; she said Natalie has good work habits, but that seemed to struggle with math. She went on to say that Natalie simply needed some assistance and a new take on how to interpret Algebra II. She believes that Karen was a good fit because of her patient and understanding nature. Marion added, “I liked the fact that she often asked Natalie questions, knowing that if Natalie could explain it to her, she knew how to do it”.

Thanks to their time working together, and Natalie’s strong desire to succeed, Natalie did see improvements in her Algebra II grade. Karen said, “During our tutoring sessions, we would focus on the concepts and formulas that were being applied in her homework assignments in order to get a better understanding of the material. Through this focus, I saw a positive change in her quiz and test results, which makes me proud as her tutor”. Karen added that Natalie acquired the tools to work independently on much of her homework, without needing too much guidance. Marion also noticed improvements in her daughter’s understanding and grades; she said, “Natalie worked her way up to a C+ before finals. We were all nervous when it came to finals, hoping she would be able to at least maintain that C. But imagine our surprise and excitement when she ended up with a B- as her final grade!” Clearly, Natalie exceeded hers Marion’s expectations and performed even better than they thought she would on her Algebra II final.

We are thrilled with Natalie’s substantial accomplishment in such a short period of time. Clearly Natalie just needed a bit of guidance and some one-on-one time with a knowledgeable tutor to help her succeed in her Algebra II class. We are very happy that we were able to be part of the process and that we had the opportunity to work with Marion and Natalie. We want to say congratulations to Natalie! We look forward to working with you again in the near future and helping you achieve all of your academic goals. Thank you for letting us be a part of your academic journey.

 


If you feel that your child has improved in school, due to the tutoring they have received from us, and you would like them to be featured as our Student of the Month, please send us an email letting us know how your child has improved.  We hope you can help us show how proud we are of each one of our students.

We provide tutoring in Chino, Norco, Corona, Chino Hills, Eastvale, Mira Loma, Alta Loma, Ontario, Rancho Cucamonga, and all the surrounding cities.  We have students from Sky Country Elementary, Oxford Preparatory Academy, Heritage Oak Private Education, Townsend Junior High School, Roosevelt High School, Alta Loma High School, Norco High School, Centennial High School, Chino Hills High School, Ontario Christian High School and Ayala High School.

reviewpositive“Natalie is now a senior in high school at Chino Hills High School.

She is a basketball player with a busy and often hectic schedule.

After receiving a “D” on the first semester report card of her junior year in Algebra 2, and starting off the second semester with yet another ”D”, we realized we needed more help; quickly. This upcoming report card was going to be an important transcript, as it is used for college applications. (Athletes who want to play their sport in college do not only have to be good in their sport, but it is expected to have good grades also).

Your tutoring service was recommended to us by a friend. This is how we met Karen.

Karen first came to my work place to meet with Natalie and another student, and after a few sessions, we switched to private tutoring. Karen was always prompt and very friendly. She was flexible enough to keep up with our crazy schedule, sometimes even coming to our home in the evening, for tutoring, on very short notice.

Natalie, who is a good student, with A’s and B’s usually, has good work habits, but always had a hard time in math. She just needed that extra support; the “other way” of explaining something, or simply explaining it just one more time. Karen was very patient and understanding. I liked the fact that often she asked Natalie the questions, knowing that if Natalie can explain it to her, she knew how to do it.

Natalie worked her way up to a C+ before finals. We were all nervous when it came to finals, hoping she would be able to at least maintain that C. But imagine our surprise and excitement when she ended up with a B- as her final grade! We were very happy.

Now, Natalie will do summer school to improve her grade from the first semester. I wish we would have contacted you sooner. Karen will be available if needed.

We will definitely be working again with Karen and your tutoring service. Thank you very much!

Next up… SAT test in the fall. Keep your fingers crossed.”

– Marion Henderson

The Tutoring Solution's 2015 Student of the Year Scholarship Winner - Theresa Valdez

The Tutoring Solution’s 2015 Student of the Year Scholarship Winner – Theresa Valdez

For our first annual Student of the Year, we selected Theresa Valdez. We awarded her with a small scholarship for her to use for her future college endeavors. Theresa receives her tutoring in Norco. Theresa just graduated this school year from Centennial High School; we have been working with her since April 2013. She has worked with Laura, from the beginning, in order to improve her understanding of math and she also worked with a few other tutors, this year and last, to improve her understanding of history. Theresa has been a dream student to work with right from the start.

From the moment we started working with Theresa and her mom, Pat Martinez, we knew there was something special about this student and her mother. We were in awe of how invested they both were in Theresa’s academic future. We also soon learned that Theresa was the type of student that really liked to challenge herself. Throughout her academic career, she took multiple AP classes while participating in extracurricular activities that helped her stay focused, very busy, and helped her become the well-rounded young woman she is now. Like we do with all our students, we wanted to make sure we would do the most we could to help her achieve her academic goals. In order to help her meet her goals we had to match her up with equally ambitious tutors that were highly intelligent, great role models, and very passionate about their subject matter; we managed to do just that.

Theresa began working with our tutor, Laura, right from the start. Laura was there to guide Theresa through her math courses and to help her gain a better understanding of the subject. Although math was not Theresa’s favorite subject, by any means, Laura managed to make math fun and relatable for Theresa. Theresa and Laura seemed to be a perfect match; they enjoyed each others company and understood each other’s learning and teaching styles very well. Laura describes Theresa as being “dedicated, independent, diligent and creative. She loves art and applies her abilities to any school project.” She added, “We have had many laughs over the years and I will never forget her or her family”.

Although Laura will miss working with Theresa, she is happy for her and proud of everything she has accomplished these past few years. Laura said, “She may not be the greatest at math, but she never gives up working on a topic until she has mastered it. I am very proud that she has become more confident in her own abilities and does not require my help as often. I am also proud of her for getting into my Alma Matter, Cal Poly San Luis Obispo, even though she made her own choice to go to the University of Portland”. Clearly, not only did Laura play a significant role in Theresa’s academic career, but Theresa also had an impact on Laura. Their mutual love of learning helped them bond and form a real respect for one another.

For history, Theresa had a few tutors. During her sophomore year, we originally paired her up with a tutor, whom although intelligent and knowledgeable, was unable to meet Theresa’s tutoring needs; therefore, we ended up agreeing that it was best to make a change. The second tutor we assigned her for her AP US History class, Jonathan, was a much better fit. We worked closely with our tutor, Jonathan, with Theresa, her mother, and her history teacher to come up with a plan of attack in order to ensure that Theresa was getting the most out of her history class and the tutoring sessions. After coming up with some ideas, we finally seemed to find the key to helping Theresa succeed in her history class.

Theresa Valdez' Graduation Picture

Theresa Valdez’ Graduation Picture

During her senior year, Theresa took IB Latin American History. We struggled a bit to find her a tutor that we felt was qualified enough and that would be able to help her succeed in her history class. We eventually were able to find the perfect tutor, Jim, a Latin American History college professor at UC Riverside. We were thrilled when he agreed to tutor Theresa; we knew there was no one who could better help her than Jim, and he did just that.

Jim really enjoyed working with Theresa. He describes Theresa as, “a very disciplined student. She already has the organizational abilities and disciplined approach that most students at college do not have. She is above first year college students”. He went on to say that she has greater intellectual maturity than many first year college students. Additionally, he felt that their tutoring sessions were great due to Theresa’s genuine curiosity of the subject. Although, history was also not a favorite subject of Theresa’s, she always showed up to the sessions ready to learn as much as she could and with an open and inquisitive mind. They both showed genuine respect for one another and they made the most out of their tutoring sessions together.

Theresa Valdez at the RIMS Inland Science and Engineering Fair

Theresa is an exceptional young woman; she is truly one of a kind. We were very fortunate to get the opportunity to work with her, and her mother, for over 2 years. Throughout those two years, we have been extremely impressed with everything that Theresa has accomplished. In September 2013, we selected her as our Student of the Month. Additionally, a year after we started working with her, we also dedicated a blog article to her and her silver medal win at the RIMS Inland Science and Engineering Fair. Finally, this year we have learned that she was accepted into many colleges, including her dream college, the University of Portland. We also learned that she received a $72,000 scholarship to the University of Portland. We could not be prouder or more excited for Theresa and her family.

It’s rare when we work with students that are so focused, motivated, and know what path to take in order to achieve all of their goals; Theresa is one of those rare students. We asked Theresa’s tutors if they had any advice for Theresa, for her future academic career; Laura said, “My only advice would be for her to continue to be organized, study hard, go to office hours and have some fun”. Similarly, James said, “Theresa already has the college skills she needs to succeed”. Essentially, as long as Theresa continues on the path that she has been on, she is fated to succeed and to achieve all of her academic goals. We just hope to continue to be updated on all the wonderful successes she is destined for in her future.

On June 15th, 2015, we had the honor of interviewing both Theresa and Pat at their home. To learn more about these wonderful women, click play and enjoy.

Thank you Theresa and thank you Pat. We wish you both much future success and we hope you stay in touch.

The Tutoring Solution’s May Student of the Month – Alex Torres

For the month of May 2015, we selected Alex Torres as our Student of the Month. He receives his tutoring in Chino Hills. Alex is a 7th grade student at Townsend Jr. High; we have been working with him since January 2015. He worked with our tutor Chris to help him with his science, English, math and history classes. Alex proved to be a delight to work with.

We first met Alejandro, Clarissa, and Alex Torres at the beginning of January 2015. We met with them in order to discuss their tutoring needs and to ensure that we found the best tutor possible for Alex. They expressed to us that Alex needed someone to guide him and help him with science, English and history. They needed a tutor that would be able to, not only teach, but also motivate Alex. We knew that Chris would be a great choice; after meeting Chris, the Torres agreed.

Chris and Alex got along very well from the beginning. Chris describes Alex as having a great personality, being very smart, and also as a very funny young man. He goes on to add that, although Alex has a hard time staying focused, they managed to find techniques to work around that and to ensure that he retained vital information. Chris really enjoyed his time with Alex; he loved seeing him improve his understanding of the different school subjects while learning some new techniques that will help him in his future studies.

After having worked with Alex for five months, Chris did see Alex improve in several different areas. Chris says that Alex’ grade in math improved and he also saw his understanding of science improve greatly. Nonetheless, most important of all, Alex was able to learn more effective ways of studying as well as how to pace himself when completing assignments so as to not miss any vital information and ensure that he was retaining everything he needed to successfully complete what was required of him. Chris knows that if Alex keeps working hard and uses the tools he was taught, he will continue to see improvements and he will be well on his way to achieving his academic goals. Alex is a wonderful student with great potential, he just needed someone who could guide him and help him learn how best use his energy to study and learn successfully.

Alex’ parents also noticed improvements in his understanding of the course materials as well as in his confidence in himself. They said, “Not only has Alex’ grades improved, but his outlook on studying and organization has made a great difference on him as well. Alex’ self confidence has greatly improved in school. We thank our awesome tutor Chris for a wonderful job!!! Highly recommended for any student having trouble. Chris has made a life changing adjustment in Alex’ life, Alex future academic goals look bright.” Clearly Chris was a great match for Alex’ tutoring needs. We could not be more delighted about the results that Alex and his family saw. We strive to find the best tutor for each one of our students, and it sounds like in this case, we did just that.

We could not be more pleased with our time with the Torres family; they are kind, dedicated, and very involved in Alex’ education. Thanks to their openness to work with us and their tutor and their continued hard work, Alex was able to reap the benefits of tutoring and begin to see some very essential changes in his perception of learning. We know that nothing but success awaits Alex’ academic future, as long as he continues to have the support of his parents and as long as he continues to work hard and strive to live up to his potential. Congratulations Alex! We look forward to hearing about all your future successes!
