"It is with great pleasure that I submit this letter of unequivocal recommendation for Ms. Sophia Tabaroki. From 2003-2007, Ms. Tabaroki worked as my son’s coach/tutor, when he was in 7th and 8th grade... read entire testimonial

"My daughter was in Los Angeles for medical treatment this past November. She is a junior in high school in Maryland and is battling neurological Lyme disease. It’s her junior year and she’s a high achieving student with an intense course load. We made the decision to look for a tutor so that she wouldn’t fall drastically behind missing more than two weeks of curriculum. Sophia was the absolute perfect fit for my daughter. Not only was she extremely helpful with the content for her AP classes, she was flexible with our schedule as it changed every day and we really couldn’t commit ahead of time. She came to us at the hotel, was kind and supportive, and alleviated a lot of anxiety for my child as she underwent her treatment and tried to stay on top of her coursework. I will forever be grateful for being referred to her, and if we lived locally, we would certainly be using her services more frequently. If you need a tutor for your student, look no further! She is perfect!" -AW

"We were so pleased with our experience with Sophia. Kiera worked with Sophia for 2 months to prepare for the Upper Level ISEE and raised her scores significantly from her initial assessment test. She offered an extremely comprehensive and personalized program, identifying Kiera’s weaknesses, and working with her to develop and strengthen her skills. Kiera was able to take several full length, scored practice tests throughout the process, creating an important comfort level with the exam, which also allowed Sophia to zero in on exactly where Kiera was still struggling throughout the process. Sophia is a remarkably patient, kind and inspiring tutor. It’s no small feat to keep a teenager engaged in an intense preparation process for such a long stretch; and Sophia handled it brilliantly. We were thrilled with Kiera’s final test results. But more than that – we feel that she really learned in her time with Sophia – growing as a student in ways that will benefit her forever."

"We cannot thank you enough for everything. Sophia - you are a dream - your patience is never ending and you managed to keep David focused and improving right through to the end. We’re so very grateful."

"Sophia, you don't know how much I appreciate all the work you are putting into my gals. Big difference in what Juila wrote. Thank you!!!!"

"I was very pleased to work with Sophia. She was very knowledgeable and pushed me to my limits as it pertained to test preparations. I am very confident that I will reach my goals come exam day."

"Sophia was a wonderful asset for our ISEE preparation. She was a wonderful teacher and our child enjoyed working with her through the process."

"Sophia was PERFECT in every way. She helped our son and daughter get into their top choice of school. We cannot be more satisfied."

"I just can't thank you enough for your work with Daniella tonight. I've never seen her so happy after 2 hours of work on anything! Honestly - she feels so much more confident and that's priceless."

"Sophia Tabaroki is by far one of the BEST tutors in the greater LA area! She accomplishes in one session what others take multiple sessions to do. Furthermore, Sophia has a magical ability in getting her students to understand difficult concepts with such ease. Your child’s least favorite subject will become his/her favorite after Sophia’s session, it’s quite amazing!"
