When you do something for over 30 years and still enjoy it that says something. I have taught grades four through six and love the Intermediate age child.

Erica W. says, "Before selecting Great Expectations tutoring I shopped around looking at many well know tutoring companies. Many of the well known companies tried to oversell hours. I wanted an SAT math tutor to help improve my daughters score. She previously scored 590 and decided to retake the exam, one month before the next test date. Many companies tried to sell me upto 40 hours for math only test prep. Ben met with my daughter and assured me that the study plan he recommended would be sufficient for our overall goals. With one month of tutoring, my daughters score increased from 590 to 690. Additionally, my daughter is only a freshman in high school. We'll definitely use Ben again as she prepares to take the exam for college admission." Read more

Reviews for Downers Grove English tutors

Recent success stories from people in the Downers Grove area.
Jessica B.
Amy is excellent! She’s intelligent, incredibly knowledgeable and clearly very experienced. She has been a wonderful tutor to my middle schooler son. She’s creative, patient and very willing to tweak lessons and material to suit what her students need. My son has made gains with his reading level and decoding skills because of the time he has spent tutoring with Amy. Not only is she a talented tutor, she is an incredible advocate and sounding board to me as a parent. I have contacted her countless times to ask her opinion about what is happening in and out of my son’s classroom. I’m very grateful for her talents and and feel fortunate to have her working with my son!! One other thing I love is that she bills monthly and takes multiple forms of payment — so easy! Highly recommend!

I was referred through another family whose son got into UCLA after working with Ben. Ben helped my son improve 7 points on the ACT to a 33 score. Now my son is eligible for a lot of scholarships and has even gotten a full-ride offer from a few schools. I'm so grateful to Ben for being able to help my son - he is an awesome tutor!
