They connected immediately. Pieta provided recommendations on how to analyze poetry and craft a strong essay for her IB final exams. She also provided concrete ways to minimize my daughter's fatigue during lengthy exams. Best of all, my daughter is looking forward to her next session.

Relates to my student very well. We enjoy how she explains the work load and makes it fun. We are focusing on writing and looking forward to seeing how she does with math, but have all the confidence in the world she will nail that also.

Mrs. Pieta is able to identify my son?s knowledge gaps and address the problem areas. She is patient and offers kind guidance. We will definitely use her services again. I highly recommend her!
- Patricia J. from Jacksonville, FL
The tutor has taught me what to do before, during and after reading the text. She also taught me how to map out the passage and how to create main ideas. I selected a text from the official SAT guide and she and I went through the questions very carefully. I'm super glad she was able to teach me a new technique when taking the SAT! Kudos to her!
- Annika L. from New York, NY
Pieta went above and beyond to ensure that I was prepared for the Florida Subject Area Exam. She put 100% into each session to ensure that we were productive. I truly learned so much from Pieta. She is very professional and I would highly recommend her to anyone!
- Julia S. from Sarasota, FL
Ms. Pieta is a wonderful teacher, she is strong and objective. She identified right away the areas where my daughter had to work for her ISEE coming test. I see my daughter confident and assertive, and we owe it to this beautiful lady. Thank you Ms. Pieta, you are awesome!!!
- Monica A. from San Diego, CA
Wish we found Pieta sooner. She knew her stuff and offered lots of help. She actively taught all the time. My daughter regretted the time she wasted with another tutor.
- Dorothy S. from New York, NY
Pieta does a great job identifying the areas that need work/attention and developing a plan to tackle them. She sets up detailed plan and brings consistency and rigor to drive improvement. Very pleased with the progress.

She?s an excellent writing teacher?my daughter enjoyed her call and found very useful! Thank you Ms. Cohen and we look forward to more classes to come. The virtual class worked out very well!
- Tong Y. from Dallas, TX
Pieta worked with my daughter on a writing assignment that would have taken her days, and she ended up turning it in the same day! She clarified the task and helped my daughter move through being stuck, which made a big difference in her writing self-confidence. Thank you!

Pieta was great with my daughter in preparing for the ACT English exam. She provided resources for additional practice and support. I am sure that my daughter will do well on the exam. Thank you for your help Pieta!
- Leena K. from Saint Augustine, FL
Pieta helped my son on his SSAT test. She is very experienced and knows how to teach children. I can see my son improved a lot not only in SSAT test but also in general reading and writing. Thanks for the help!
- Jack L. from Great Neck, NY
Pieta tutored my daughter for the SSAT and the ISEE. It was clear she had a strong background and knowledge about both tests. She was very good at communication and gave clear instructions. She also helped review and edit application essays. I cannot recommend her enough.
- Kim B. from Sacramento, CA
I did not have a chance to join the first class, but my daughter told me she liked it very much. I believe she will make a big improvement after leaning from Ms. Pieta in the next sessions. Thanks a lot!
- Jeff L. from Coppell, TX
She knows ISEE middle level material very well. She helps me on my weakness by reading paragraph together with me and tell me how to take a notes while I am reading.
- Colin P. from Westwood, MA
It is unfortunate that schools in our district hardly taught the proper English usage yet expect them to confidently succeed in the English portion of the college aptitude test. Pieta helped my daughter prepare for the English and essay portions of the ACT test. Pieta was very conscientious with the time spent for learning. She was always well prepared and gave homework when necessary. She was very kind, patient and communicated clearly. She taught valuable strategies on how to tackle the test questions. My daughter highly appreciates the time spent with Pieta. My daughter improved her scores tremendously and became more confident in the process as well. Thank you Pieta!
- Joyce L. from Bellevue, WA

I am very grateful for Pieta's help for my son. His testing scores have improved since working with her, and I believe he will continue to improve. He has enjoyed her very much. I would highly recommend Pieta!

Pieta worked on Reading, English, and Writing with our daughter for her ACT test. She has made our daughter more confident in the test. Pieta personalized each of the lessons. Well worth the investment

Pieta is very professional and helpful. My son loves her! She is helping him prepare for the ISEE test and teach some great strategies for him. After five classes of working with Pieta my son has improved his ISEE score a lot. I will recomend her 100%.
