What do our amazing clients have to say?

  • "Chris has been tutoring my son in math for 4 or 5 years now. We mostly utilize him so my son stays on top of his lessons and any questions can be answered as they arise. My son consistently earns top marks.

    Chris is patient but also firm…He does not give the answers but helps him to work through problems to find the solution. He has helped build my son’s confidence. We highly recommend!"

    - Jessica

  • "We were referred to Nourishing Minds by friends of ours, and it felt a bit like being let into a best kept secret. We are having an outstanding experience. Both of our elementary school aged children have gained confidence in themselves since we started working with Nourishing Minds. They've also learned a lot of new tactics for understanding, breaking down, and solving math problems.

    Schools are teaching math in very new and helpful ways, but as a parent who learned this "the old way," it can be difficult to support kids when I don't even understand the new methods. In every way, working with Nourishing Minds has been the right move!"

    - Chloe

  • "Chris tutored my young son for several years, following a dyslexia diagnosis. He was very patient and implemented several strategies to improve my son's reading and phonics ability.

    His initial assessment and advice was extremely useful when we requested Special Ed services from our district. I would highly recommend Chris, and Nourishing Minds tutoring services for any child who is struggling in school!"


  • "We have used Nourishing Minds for six years for math tutoring. Our tutor, Tziona, is excellent and both my kids really enjoy working with her. She is skilled in all courses of middle school and high school math. Tziona is also flexible with schedule changes when things come up, which is great, so we don't miss a beat.

    I have recently requested a physics tutor and he will be coming next week. I would highly recommend Nourishing Minds for Tutoring."

  • "Two of my children had the opportunity to work with Chris regarding some gaps in their literacy development in 1st and 2nd grade. He did an incredible job working with them. Lessons were prepared well and information was provided to me at each session to allow me to see their progress and skill development.

    They made excellent progress and filled the gaps with solid foundational understanding. They are now in middle and high school and I credit Chris with helping them to learn and reinforce those critical foundational skills."

    - Nancy

  •  " Chris of Nourishing Minds Tutoring has been working with my eight-year-old daughter in math for several months. In that time, we have seen an incredible improvement in her test scores and her confidence. Chris is patient and kind, yet knows when to be firm and encourage my daughter to overcome her hesitation when answering math problems.

    The work that Chris did with our daughter over the summer also prepared her for what would be taught at the beginning of the 3rd grade. She started the year feeling confident and unafraid of new concepts, such as multiplication, and has been bringing home A’s on her math tests for the first time. I highly recommend Nourishing Minds Tutoring!"

    - Kim

  • "Chris has been a lifesaver for us! He started tutoring our son 2 summers ago, when we found out he was behind and at risk of having to repeat a year of math. Chris came to our house and tutored our son twice a week that summer and got him to where he needed to be by the fall, no repeating a year of math!! He is knowledgable about the various school curriculums, great with the kids, instills confidence and gives you a report after each session.

    Almost two years later, Chris is still coming on a weekly basis and it helps to keep our son on task.... plus, we're not ready to let Chris go just yet!"

    - Lindsay

  • "Chris has been tutoring our son, William for two years and we are thrilled with his progress. He was transferring from a private school into the public school system. Through the placement exam, we discovered that William was behind in math compared to his peer group in the public school system. The goal was to help him reach grade level and pass the entrance exam into the enriched math program.

    With Chris' help, he was successful and is now taking enriched math and doing very well. More importantly, he is no longer anxious but is confident and enjoying math! Chris continues to work with William and provides an additional level of support. William can review concepts that he may not have fully understood in class in a judgment free setting. Chris also works with our schedule should conflicts arise. William looks forward to his tutoring sessions with Chris."
