1. Incredible Mentor

    Alan has been an incredible mentor for our kids and friend to our family. He worked with our daughter through the entire college process, taking the time to get to know her and helping her put together a “plan of attack”. It was so nice to have someone helping her and assuring us that the process was moving along at an appropriate pace. He was a calming influence for all of us. Alan also tutor…Read More

  2. Absolutely Recommend

    "Although my son was resistant to the idea of a tutor, a rapport has been built that is crucial to Jake’s willingness to engage both academically and emotionally. My son sees his tutor as someone he can turn to for help with his schoolwork, as well as an adult he trusts to talk about concerns in his life. This is the sort of mentor all adolescents should be fortunate enough to have. I also appre…Read More

  3. Someone I Really Liked

    "When I was in 7th grade, I asked my parents for a tutor because I was really struggling with my writing. I never had a tutor before, but it helped so much! We worked on my writing, and also my organization, which wasn’t very good. Even though the work wasn’t always fun, my tutor was someone I really liked, and that made it so much better. I’m now going to high school, and my writing is so m…Read More

  4. Grown As A Person

    "At first, I was not enthused by the whole concept of having a tutor, but that has changed for me. The typical tutoring experience that most people expect is not the case here. The time we spend goes further than schoolwork. We have a relationship and friendship that I value very much. The tutoring has not only helped me in the classroom but also grow as a person as we explore life beyond the text…Read More

  5. Academic & Personal Growth

    "As a special educator and therapist, I am discerning when it comes to getting help for my children. Finding Evolve to work with my 7th-grade son became a mentoring relationship that lasted six years and greatly contributed to his academic and personal growth. Our tutor’s understanding of adolescent development and talent at building mentoring relationships, allowed him to present material in wa…Read More

  6. Confidence Level Is Higher!

    "I had worked with a couple of other tutors before my parents had me meet with Evolve. I wasn’t happy about it because tutoring hadn’t worked in the past. Alan promised that he would match me up with a tutor who would not only help me with my schoolwork but would be someone I would actually like! I was still hesitant, but agreed, and am really glad that I did. My tutor and I got along great, s…Read More

  7. Been A Life Coach

    "I can’t thank you enough for the coaching, modeling, and caring you provided to my son for the past two years. I thought that I was hiring a tutor to support Alex academically, but, in fact, you’ve done much more than that both for him and for me. You’ve really been a life coach. I still can’t get over the fact that Alex looks forward to your time together, even though your focus is on hi…Read More

  8. Lifesaver For Our Family!

    Evolve Tutoring was a lifesaver for our family! We engaged Alan and his team to work with our son during his final three years of high school when he was struggling with time-management issues and assessment anxiety. His coach was just terrific. He established a wonderful bond with our son (who is now a junior in college) that helped keep him on track with assignments, exams, and college applicati…Read More

  9. Remarkable Group of People

    We have worked with Alan and Evolve since our son was admitted to a private school. His math test score wasn’t great and we obtained a great tutor the summer before he entered. That was all it took. Our son’s confidence skyrocketed and he has been excelling in math ever since. We had a similar experience when he stumbled a bit in biology. In both instances Evolve’s tutors worked closely at i…Read More
