I would love to help your child gain the skills and confidence they need to excel in today?s rapidly evolving world.

I have been an educator since 1987 when I discovered the joy of helping a shy young woman discover her ability to excel. I?ve pursued this passion formally and informally with clients from a diverse range of cultural backgrounds from third grade through college. It is my hope that my students will find a passion for learning and gain skill sets that they can use in all their e...

Helen has been really helpful in showing me how to do some of the difficult problems. A lot of the math I have not had in a long time slowly coming back to me. Preparing to take the GRE in May and this is helping me to get a head start.

This was our first time for any tutoring for our son. Our son is 4.3 gpa student, AP classes, Varsity/Captain of wrestling and Football team, but his weakness is with taking test especially the ACT and SAT. I have always been skeptical with tutors, especially with searching for one through the internet, Through wyzant we were able to find Helen G. who seemed to be a great match for ACT and SAT review for our son. With his 1st lesson with ACT test review, my son already felt he learned a lot and was so excited to continue with next session. Helen was patient, knowledgeable and was attentive to my son's concerns and issues when it came to reviewing, reading and understanding. We HIGHLY RECOMMEND Helen to anyone that is looking for help for their child or even themselves. We plan to continue with SAT prepping as well as College application essays. Thank you Helen, we appreciate your quickness to respond and your flexibility to work with our son.

Helen is the college application couch for my daughter. My daughter wrote about 14 application essays and Helen review them, gave valuable recommendations. She is knowledgeable and helpful. And she is very honest too. I have booked her for 2 hours, working in the library with my daughter. I was not there. They finished earlier, only use 1 hour and 30 min. She have texted me about that they have finished and only billed me the time she used with my daughter. She is a great tutor!!!

My child has always had problems with math and Helen has been patient and understanding and has given my daughter more confidence in solving math problems. I would recommend her 100% to anyone needing help with math

Second lesson and my daughter was actually looking forward to it. I could tell she was feeling more confident and comfortable today. I can't wait to see her progress

This was my daughter's first session with Helen and I believe it was beneficial. They discussed poetry by Emily Dickinson to prepare my daughter for a literature assignment. I was pleased with my daughter's feed back about the session, in which she indicated Helen insisted she be equally engaged in the discussion. This challenged my daughter to think critically and discuss her thoughts; and did not allow her to be "carried" through the session. My daughter found the session challenging and the instruction valuable. -Thx

Helen knows common core and teaches it well. She can break it down and is very helpful to my daughter. Also she's honest. She won't say "it's summer, we need to keep all the sessions up". She was the first to say " it's summer, or Christmas break, so do you want to go down to one a week"? This is how she makes money and she's not greedy or selfish. We've been using her over a year, and we will continue to. Thank you Helen!

Helen has done a great job with our daughter. She takes the time to go through the subject and has come up with different ways for her to study and prepare for her tests.
- Brian A. from Spring Valley, CA
Very happy with Helen. She is professional and gets results. She has the teaching skills and subject knowledge to make the difference. She was able to coach our son to a significant increase in his ACT scores. Highly recommended!
- Dave L. from San Diego, CA
Helen is a very caring person. She's always on time and is very patient with my daughter who gets distracted very easily and can be slow at understanding things. I have tried other tutors and finally someone is helping her. My daughter seems comfortable with Helen and likes the way she teaches. Helen has helped us achieve a visible improvement in a very short time! I'm so grateful I found her!

Helen helped my son prepare for the English and reading parts of the ACT. She knows the material well and explains it clearly. She is always on time and is flexible too. She is a pleasure to work with.
- Carin G. from San Diego, CA
From the first communication, Helen showed great patience, flexibility, and understanding. Helen is an extremely bright person that is able to connect with stressed out teenagers! Always reachable and always able to find a way for scheduling conflicts. Meticulous work ethic really showed in the results!

Elle s'ajuste ? la connaissance de l'?l?ve et donne le cours au niveau que l'?tudiant a comme connaissance de la langue Anglaise. She adjusts to the knowledge of the student and gives lessons to the student at their level of knowledge of the English language.
- Claude M. from San Diego, CA
My daughter is being tutored for her upcoming SAT and she has test anxiety. Her tutor, Helen, was able to keep my daughter engaged in the process, something I was unable to do. Helen was very patient, thorough and organized.
