What Our Clients Say

"I called Jeanne this afternoon just to let you all know that I appreciate working through NVTS more than you can imagine. I don't think that I would ever have had the opportunity to work with the quality of students that I have served with any other organization or through word-of-mouth. They are motivated. Their parents are dedicated to providing the greatest opportunities for their success. They have been extremely supportive of my efforts. They deserve nothing but the best from me. NVTS is certainly deserving of the same." – an NVTS Tutor since 2012

“Dr. Perrino’s staff has inspired our children to be more prepared with their school work. He has helped to enhance their study skills, project preparation, and test taking strategies. We highly recommend Northern Virginia Tutoring Service to enrich your child’s learning experience.”

“I wanted to share with you the news that my daughter is enjoying a good deal of success in her pursuit of her passions…due in part to your help. If she didn’t have your quality tutors available to her, she would be in conventional school, and unable to keep up her incredibly demanding rehearsal schedule. She danced in the Nutcracker with the Washington Ballet at the Warner Theatre during December. She also landed a female lead in Footloose at the Little Theatre of Alexandria. There is no way she could successfully manage high school with all of this! So you and your help with your quality tutors is VERY MUCH APPRECIATED!! Thanks again for everything you have done for us.”

“Thanks to a structured tutoring program of skill building and enrichment activities, our son is now an A/B student… Our daughter has also benefited from summer enrichment activities provided through Northern Virginia Tutoring Service…

Dr. Perrino has a keen understanding of what motivates young people and how to get them to ‘turn on the switch.’ And, he has unending patience!”

“I just wanted to let you know how pleased I have been with the tutor you provided for my son. Ken (the tutor) has been wonderful. I just wish I had contacted you earlier. When I first contacted you, my son had a D in Algebra. Working with Ken, we just learned that he earned a B for this quarter with an A on his final exam!…Ken is an amazing tutor – very patient and explains concepts amazingly well…Thanks so much for the wonderful service!”

“Northern Virginia Tutoring Service is very professional and very much oriented to the needs of the student – a totally positive experience.”

“Thank you so much for the service you have provided to our son. We are very pleased to tell you that he was able to raise his ACT scores and apply for the U.S. Marine Corps program! Michael did a great job tutoring and we will highly recommend him and your tutoring service to everyone. Thanks again for being so easy to work with and for catering the tutoring directly to our son’s needs.”

“I wanted to let you know that my son came up 200 points on the SAT. Please convey to Ellen, his tutor, our gratitude. His score in critical reading improved greatly. He now feels good about himself and this experience has helped build his self-confidence.”

“Thank you for sending me such a WONDERFUL tutor! I adore her and think that she helped me in many ways to prepare for the MAT test. I take the test on May 19th and it is my birthday, so I’m going to view this as a gift to myself! My gift is entrance into grad school! I have test anxiety and I deal with confidence issues as an adult."

“Having your tutor work with me helped me to focus on what I CAN do rather than letting me dwell on the negative. I don’t think I would be taking the MAT exam next week without your services. Should I need additional tutoring, I will absolutely contact your firm. You are the best!”

“I am writing to thank you for recommending your tutor to work with my daughter. Simply put, the tutor was amazing. She built a strong rapport; she was on time, was flexible when we needed to change the time, was communicative and offered appointment reminders. She built confidence in my daughter, who walked into the SAT on top of the world. She felt fully prepared, equipped with test-taking strategies, and skilled in math and writing. I wanted to write before the test scores were actually released, because now the scores to us are not as important as her experience preparing for and taking the test. Her friends and peers also took SAT prep classes, paying $3,000 – $8,000 for classes packed with students being drilled in math formulas 3 hours a day. We had – Northern Virginia Tutoring Service! You offered customized, personalized, professional attention. Thank you so much!”

“Raising your score can only happen after the match is made and this is what Dr. Perrino did. After discussing my son’s needs, he found just the right tutor. My son’s SAT score rose 120 points! The SAT score he received made the difference between acceptance to a ‘reach school’ and a ‘safety school.’ I explored all types of tutoring options and found Northern Virginia Tutoring to have the right mix of personalization, professionalism, and also equally important to me, a fair and reasonable fee policy.”

“Dr. Perrino has emphasized basic skills, and thinks of fun and interesting ways to practice these skills. My son enjoys the time he spends with Dr. P. He has an open and constructive attitude, which helps him address academic issues with teachers.”

“Charlotte is fantastic! I really enjoyed and benefited from my tutoring session. She provided inspiration, encouragement, and confidence that I can successfully complete my dissertation. You have an awesome tutoring agency with exceptional customer service.”

“Our tutor is an absolute, wonderful gift. She has turned my son around and has given him the confidence and self-esteem he lacked. She has brought continuity back to our family through her caring, thoughtful approach. The time and effort spent on tutoring has been a wonderful experience. She has literally given back my son. … There may be times when parents look at the dollar signs, but there is not a dollar sign that can be put on the service that has been provided by Northern Virginia Tutoring Service.”

“My daughter has been tutored in math by one of Dr. Perrino’s tutors for over a year. Her confidence in her math skills and herself has grown to the point where she now considers math a challenge rather than a chore.”

“Wanted to quickly send a heartfelt and almost emotional thank you. We just found out that is getting all As and a B… She is so proud and happy and said – ‘I guess I am good at math now’. We just can’t thank you enough for all your company did and of course – Mrs. P. did – to review and better prepare her for this academic year. Not only is she performing better – she is much more confident and happy about school and is enjoying math and looks forward to writing.”

“It’s with great pleasure and a bit of regret that I submit this letter informing you that I’ll no longer need the services of the “Great Teacher”, Joe. Joe has been a godsend in the World of Statistics. He has literally ensured through his tutoring that I’ll graduate this May. I’m so grateful for your services and the fact that your tutors, like Joe, are experts in their respective areas. Without hesitation, I would definitely recommend your services to any parent or student looking for excellence in in-home tutoring. Thanks so much, and continual success!”

“I found myself this past spring with three required classes remaining before I could apply for graduation. Two of these classes were calculus classes. Math is my weakness. I was fortunate enough to find Northern Virginia Tutoring and Joe, the tutor assigned to work with me. Joe was patient, kind , and most importantly, very encouraging, always prepared and helpful. Joe provided valuable guidance that enabled me to succeed more easily. He is the best.”

“Dr. Perrino has been a pleasure to work with – easily accessible and very knowledgeable about his staff. My son attends GMU and his grades improved dramatically as a result of the tutoring. He also welcomes the help. This tutoring experience has made a huge difference.”

“Our experience with Northern Virginia Tutoring Service was very positive. From our initial contact, we felt that you clearly understood our unique situation. You acted promptly and we were more than pleased with the experience. Please feel free to use us as a reference, both for your business and as a personal reference for our tutor.”

“Using Northern Virginia Tutoring Service has been such a positive experience and I will definitely call you in the future, if my son is ever in need of tutoring help again. Thanks again for helping to get my son and me through a very rough school year!”

“Katey has shown an extraordinary ability to ascertain and relate to my daughter and her issues, strengths, and weaknesses, thereby enabling her to help my daughter where and when she needs support and assistance the most. You may recall, my daughter has had five tutors in four years, yet never have we both been so very pleased and satisfied with her tutor. She loves working with Katey and looks forward to her coming (an amazing feat in and of itself!)…Katey has gone over and beyond my expectations and has proven a valuable ally and ‘go between’ on an array of issues…she communicates directly with her teachers and keeps me copied on all communiqués. Katey is the best tutor I have ever had for either of my daughters over a ten year period in four different states! You have a true gem in her and I hope neither of us ever lose her!”

“Matt was accepted to Virginia Tech. We found out last night. He was smiling so much that I thought his face was going to break! I cannot tell you how happy I am, not so much about the college, but that Matt went to bed so incredibly happy! He was so proud of himself. Knowing his journey, as you do, makes this acceptance really, really great. This would not have happened without you. Thank you!”

“As the former office manager of NVTS, I have heard many testimonials from parents and observed how hard the tutors strive to help every student, but it is completely different to experience it as a client. I am amazed and thrilled with how her tutor has boosted my daughter’s confidence and attitude. She is much less stressed and upset by her homework and studying for tests, she is less resistant about doing her homework and it does not take long painful hours anymore, her grade is up two letter grades, and she is even able to help her friends a little! Our family life is much more pleasant for all of us thanks to the influence of the NVTS tutor. Thank you!”
