My son was struggling with Math so we decided to sign him up at Cedar. He was not happy about this of course, but first day that I picked him up he came out so excited and happy. He now thanks me for signing him up. Cedar has helped him so much, his grades improved within the first month. They are very passionate and dedicated with the kids.
I love how caring and professional Cedar’s staff. In addition, I appreciate the center’s open door policy and how they are very accessible and understanding. My son loves coming to Cedar to enhance his reading skills and his confidence towards school. I’m so thankful for the extra spark of happiness that you’ve helped to bring out of our son. Keep up the great work!

I am very pleased with the Cedar tutoring. My grandson is improving in school. The staff is warm and professional. When my grandson had to meet with the staff at his school, Cedar sent a representative to attend the meeting also. I really appreciate the support. Highly recommended for math tutoring and english tutoring as well.

In just 5 months, both my son and daughter improved 25 points or so each on their standardized testing for reading, dramatically reaching near or to grade level. One of their teachers at school attributed the increase to the tutoring. Both my kids, after initially complaining, enjoyed going to cedar for each session.

Every staff member at Cedar tutoring is 110% invested in my son to improve his reading level and overall academic success! All questions were answered, and a learning plan was set right from the beginning. Timely reviews of his progress keep me in the loop! Worth every dollar!! I highly recommend!

In February 2019, I enrolled my second-grader niece, Ke’Iko, in Cedar. Our family’s concern was for her struggles with reading. Although she was in the second grade, she was only reading at a first grade level. Her second grade teacher, who had expressed concerns about Ke’Iko’s reading skills since the start of the September 2018 school year, was seriously considering not recommending my niece’s promotion to the third grade for the upcoming September 2019 school year. That possibility really upset Ke’Iko. No matter how hard she tried, and despite extra help from her parents and teacher, my niece’s reading skills were not significantly improving. I knew something more had to be done! My only regret is the fact that I waited so long to finally reach out to Cedar.Months before, I had gone online to research the many tutoring options and I found information about Cedar. I was impressed with what I learned, and shared my findings with Ke’Iko’s parents. They agreed that we should contact Cedar to discuss my niece’s needs. Cedar set up an appointment for assessment testing to evaluate her strengths and weaknesses, and to recommend a plan of action. Along with Ke’Iko’s parents, the decision was made to enroll her in two 3 one-hour sessions per week. Cedar assured us that they could help my niece, and Ke’Iko was excited to begin. After a few weeks, Ke’Iko’s second grade teacher began to notice an improvement in her reading skills. Fast-forward approximately 3 months to May 2019 – my niece is now proud, and is making steady progress! She loves reading, has a library card, and regularly visits the library to check out books. No doubt, her improvement is due, in large part, to the efforts of Cedar. Thank you to Asmah and all the teachers and tutors there. They really care. Our family is very pleased with Ke’Iko’s progress. She currently still attends cedar each week, and we look forward to her continued improvement. We highly recommend the cedar tutoring. They are totally dedicated to ensuring your child’s educational success! THANK YOU. As Ke’Iko would say, “You rock!

Turned to Cedar after trying other tutoring methods with my daughter. Best decision I’ve made and best money I’ve spent. She is grasping the concept more and more with each visit and her grades have improved. She is more confident as well. I would definitely recommend!

I have 3 sons who have all benefited from the tutoring instruction at cedar tutoring. My son who is entering high school benefited from an individualized program he tested into, Algebra reviews and reinforcements and homework help. My middle school son was having struggles in math and the staff at cedar accommodated him so that he could be successful. He has also enjoyed the summer STEM camp! My youngest son loves math and wanted to be challenged. So, they placed him in a program with instructors that would challenge him. I am so appreciative for the personal connections they made with all 3 boys. I came to cedar from a friends recommendation and we are so glad we did.

My child has been enrolled in cedar tutoring and he has greatly benefited from it. He is much more confident in his reading and his vocabulary has improved.

The approach at Cedar tutoring is very focused on what you need, so you don’t waste money and your child doesn’t waste time. Perfect fit for my daughter who needed ACT tutoring on specific areas in a limited amount of time. I never felt “locked in” to a program, and they were very flexible and open to any change of course we felt was needed. The staff is super friendly and very well qualified. I couldn’t be happier with our experience (and, by the way, my daughter’s ACT scores went up!!).

Our daughter has always struggled with math concepts resulting in a hatred for math and a lack of confidence in her learning abilities. Her sessions at Cedar helped take away that hatred and actually enjoy math. Her confidence level soared and her math grades and ability to LEARN what she is being taught has improved immensely. Cedar’s program helped Olivia beyond our expectations. The entire staff was amazing and Olivia actually looked forward to her sessions.

I have been so impressed with how well the tutors at Cedar tutoring in Orland park have worked with my grandson! Everyone has been so patient and encouraging with him. The progress he has made working with Cedar during the past few months has been the key reason he is doing much better this school year. He has more confidence in class with all the skills he has improved on or mastered, and by using his new study skills. Cedar have been very helpful in math and reading tutoring. The environment that the staff creates for the students makes learning fun and exciting. And because of that, my grandson looks forward to going each day! Thanks to all the staff at Sylvan!

So, it has been several months since I enrolled my son Adam and Mohammad in after school sessions at Cedar Academy. At first, I remember attending the open house and instantly fell in love with the school. They offered a free placement test and really seen where my children can use a little extra help. I was offered a discount package for the first month and ever since I have been please. They are very professional and E-mail weekly reports for each child and session to explain everything going on and where my children’s weakness and strong points were, and what area of weakness they worked on. Their rates may seem on the higher side, but it is still very competitive, but you get what you pay for. They also helped build self esteem and confidence in my son Mohammad, and that to me is priceless and worth more than the good grades he will receive. Even if your child is a great student, they can become even better with Cedar. Thank you Asma, and the entire staff!

I am a software engineer while my husband is an IIT Grad. You would think that we would be the best people to train our kids in math, but after sending my daughter to Cedar in worth, we have realized that kids learning is not just a function of the teacher’s knowledge, but also the style of teaching. I like the intuitive and easy way that instructors at Cedar teach the basic concepts. I’m happy with the results and would highly recommend this place.

Our Grandson’s experience with Cedar has exceeded our expectations. He has finally gained some confidence in his ability to do Math. He no longer says that he is “too stupid” to even attempt 5th Grade Math. He participates more in class than he used to, according to his teacher.This new found confidence isn’t displayed just in Math! It is beginning to carry over into other classes as well. Thank you Cedar. We highly recommend cedar tutoring for math tutoring in oak lawn area

Thank you Cedar Tutoring for helping my daughter finally regain her confidence in her school work. My daughter is very intelligent but she lacks in motivation and confidence. I don’t know what the tutor in cedar did to change this in her in just a few weeks! The tutor must be very skillful and has a lot of experience and knowledge of how to strengthen skills in students lacking some potential in school. I am not surprised as well because the director of the center used to provide my daughter with private tutor for a little amount of time left of the school year last year so I knew I wanted to find her again and continue her approach with students. Cedar tutoring not only helps with homework and studying strategies, they also allow the child to find themselves within them. She now comes home from school happy and opens her books on her own and confidently finished her work with ease. She loves going to tutoring because she always tells me how much the tutor encourages her to keep up and tells me she feels very comfortable around all the staff at cedar. I would highly recommend any parent who is finding extra help for their child to look no further. Cedar academy is very professional and affordable!

I am so impressed with Cedars Tutoring. My two junior high sons have been going there and have been doing great. They never fuss about having to go and are always motivated! The staff is very professional and understanding. They make sure each kid is taught using their own learning style which is exactly what they need. Upon registering them they took a close look at their map scores, took placement tests and their report cards to make sure they know their area of improvement. Then every week I get an update of their performances. Seriously I can’t say enough good things!

This had been the best investment for our family. We have a 5th grader, whom has focus issues and needs help gaining independence in his studies in a timely manner with confidence And our pre-k 4 for enrichment. The staff is excellent. My children look forward to coming here for the prizes they EARN and of course to have the rest of their evening to relax. In just 4 weeks my son has pulled his grades up a letter grade, has more confidence in his execution and overall attitude change in regards to homework and studying. As parents it was hard to keep the focus with our son. The authority is different. So! If youre thinking of joining, DO NOT HESITATE! Cedar provides a clean, healthy, safe fun environment for learning. We are looking into summer enrichment as well for both of our children.

Asmah is such an amazing tutor. She works so well with my son and he really enjoys coming every day after school. I most definitely recommend this tutoring center to other parents! They’re patient and help the children grow. It also gives them the one on one attention they’re not able to receive at school.

Cedar Tutoring is very professional and has tools that will first get your kid to feel comfortable, feel good about themselves, and then become confident. I really saw a change in my daughter. It was like night and day. I also felt that it was better than finding a regular tutor somewhere else because Cedar will first assess your kid and then, figure out the specific areas that need work. I feel it is a more efficient way to get the best help. My daughter has made an overall improvement in her targeted subjects of reading, writing, and math over the last 3 months. I will continue to send my daughter here, and look forward to her continued success. Lastly, I was very happy to see the staff reaching out to her teacher to see what areas of opportunity still need focus, and which have improved to gain an actual assessment of productivity.
