"Our experience was GREAT!! For starters, the owner was so helpful in working with my son's busy schedule. And Kirstin was the perfect fit for my son. They clicked; he understood her, was motivated, did his homework, and looked forward to his sessions with her. She sent assessments after each session--which meant a lot. She really paid attention to him. His ACT score improved SIGNIFICANTLY! Each section. I would recommend Masterminds, hands down!!"
-Kerensa P. (Spain Park High School)

-Kay Y. (Shades Valley High School)
"Our son has been extremely happy with his tutor Kylie. He started with Geometry and raised his grade on his next test to a low A. He then added Chemistry and understands the subject much better.

-Mary P. (Mountain Brook Elementary School)

-Cindy A. (Oak Mountain High School)

-Katherine H. (Homeschool)
"If you need a tutor quickly, Masterminds is who you need! Setting up an appointment online is easy. I was able to get next-day tutoring for my son, which was a relief. My son loved the one-on-one help and was optimistic about his next test. The tutor can come to your house or meet at a public place. You pay up front online so you don't have to talk money with the tutor. I highly recommend Masterminds Tutoring. Your child's outlook will change and you'll be the hero for using them. Will definitely use them again!"
-Meredith R. (Oak Mountain High School)
"You all have been wonderful for my son's confidence in math. He is making A's in trigonometry so we have come a long way from a few years ago. He thinks he can do it on his own now, but I always remind him that Masterminds is still there if he needs help. Much appreciation for your positive influence from a grateful mom."

-Amy J. (Hewitt-Trussville High School)

Both of the tutors we’ve used have been friendly, helpful and patient with my son’s particular needs. The tutors can come right to my home, so we’ve now set up a weekly session. My son’s grades have definitely improved since he started tutoring, and he’s feeling much more confident in his classes!"
-Courtney D. (Mountain Brook Elementary School)
"Our tutor was awesome! My son needed help with ACT math and science only. She was professional, articulate, warm and incredibly helpful. He walked out of his tutoring session saying, "Wow, Mom, she gave me incredible tips that NO ONE has ever told me before!" He said he now knows how to apply this information and feels more confident. This was our first session together and when the tutor gave him a practice test he scored a few points higher! Can't recommend Masterminds high enough!"
-Ann C. (Oak Mountain High School)
"Excellent instruction! Our tutor was quick to point out my son's strength and weakness, to suggest helpful study guides for him, and to state her personalized plan to work on his progress in language skills. My son told me he really enjoyed studying with the tutor and is looking forward to having more lessons with her."

-Cristy O. (Sardis High School)

-Jackie H. (Vestavia Hills High School)
"Masterminds Tutoring has been a good experience for our daughter because of their flexibility. We have had the opportunity to try different tutors and find out which ones connect best with her. And then we can schedule sessions for whatever times fit into our calendar. There is the option of having a standing weekly appointment, or to schedule as needed. We do a little of both. Our daughter has benefitted by doing math problems and science homework with her tutors. The practice she gets in her tutoring sessions has improved her math grade this year."
-Kimberly A. (Homewood Middle School)
"We have used several tutors at Masterminds for several different subjects and have had nothing but a great experience! My daughter has loved all the tutors. When I asked her what she liked she said that the tutors were able to explain some things in a different way than her teachers and she was able to see things differently. The locations and time seem to work for us and there has only been one time that someone was sick but the owner called me and we were able to change the time and it all worked out fine. We have been very pleased with Masterminds!"
-Gigi W. (Mountain Brook Junior High School)

-Betsy P. (Mountain Brook High School)
"I have been very pleased with my experience with Masterminds Tutoring. The program is designed in an efficient manner that allows for ease of scheduling and for a timely response. I have been most pleased with the tutors that have worked with my son. The tutor that I have worked with most consistently has been able to communicate the concepts of a difficult subject matter (geometry) in a manner that has resulted in my son gaining an understanding of the concepts and thereby raising his grade by two letter grades. In addition, the tutor’s gift of teaching has helped to restore my son’s love of math and his classroom success has translated to increased self confidence."
