I love MentorBuddies. It made my life with 3 children so much easier. I used to ask for tutor recommendations through Facebook. Sometimes I would get good recommendations, but other times, I did not. MentorBuddies makes it really easy to connect with great tutors and schedule sessions. The rate is always the same, and very reasonable. Your credit card gets automatically charged after each lesson, so you don't have to remember to take out and leave cash every time a tutor comes. Great system for busy families!

My daughter loves math and wanted to go to the next level, so we hired a sophomore at Newton North through MentorBuddies to do math with her once a week and show her some advanced concepts. It has worked out great! My daughter loves the 1:1 attention, and it is great for her to have a female role model who excels in math.

Our son is always excited for his weekly session through MentorBuddies for homework help and more recently, coding. Our son looks up to his mentor, both accepting and putting to use his suggestions and strategies for academics. The last few months of school were incredibly positive for our son as a result of these sessions. We've also continued throughout the summer with a focus on coding. This is such a valuable service- the caliber of mentors available is excellent. We are so glad to have found MentorBuddies!

I have been using MentorBuddies for the past 8 months for my kids. Both the tutors (Jake for English language arts and Leo for tennis) have been completely amazing. They are both very professional in interactions yet friendly and personable. My kids look up to them as true mentors and are more motivated to go to lessons as compared to other classes I have tried for these purposes. Eli is extremely responsive for any trouble-shooting which makes it a smooth process. I am grateful to have this resource and look forward to using current tutors and more through MentorBuddies.

My 7 year old grandson needed someone to help him with sports skills and MentorBuddies filled the bill. Not only does he love spending time with Nico, he is learning tennis, basketball and baseball skills as well. MentorBuddies has been great for us.

It is the most amazing idea to have high school students who really understand our kids to be able to teach them--and know exactly what kids have issues with, as they have gone through the same process not too long ago themselves.
