My 25 years of experience inside and outside the system gives you and your students the solutions you need to succeed.

20 years ago I started a school on this premise: When all factors are accounted for self-education is the heart of all education. We took remedial ninth graders and brought them all up to grade level in almost all subjects within a single school year. Good self-educators understand the value of guided self-education, and self-educators-in-training usually need guidance in le...

Great first session with Courtney H. He is extremely responsive, and got the ball rolling quickly. Although we've only had one session at this point, he was attentive to my son's particular needs and provided a helpful followup recap of their session.

Courtney was able to establish key areas for improvement with how my daughter takes test. This is helpful and she's starting to apply the knowledge . We have several more sessions to go before the ACT Test, I'll submit another review at the end of all sessions.

Courtney was super easy to work with and taught me great quantitative tactics for the GMAT exam. I'd recommend him again and look forward to sharing my progress and building on that in our next session.

In only 4 sessions with Mr. H, my son's SAT score has soared up to a whopping 2160 from a stagnating 2000. He has clearly demonstrated that he is very effective, as he quickly discovered my son's time phobia for SAT and also resolved it with expedition. Therefore, he is a marvelous tutor.
- Brigitte W. from Charlotte, NC
My daughter looks forward to meetings and bounces through a variety of topics. Courtney has patiently given great guidance and enhanced her confidence. Highly recommended.
- Susan G. from Charlotte, NC
We were very impressed and satisfied. Courtney taught my son reading skills necessary for successfully taking the English and Reading parts of the ACT. My son?s reading comprehension has greatly improved, and he has a renewed confidence and a great understanding of what is required for the ACT.

Courtney tutored our daughter, specifically to help her improve her SAT scores. She had a few group sessions with Courtney between the 2nd and 3rd try at the SAT. After the 3rd attempt, her scores were high enough for her to receive a full academic scholarship! Thank you Courtney.
- Misty J. from Charlotte, NC
Our experience with Courtney was wonderful. He really cares about his students and truly wants them to succeed. I cannot say enough about him.
- Pamela V. from Huntersville, NC
I hired Courtney to work with my daughter on the SAT reading and writing portions. He had worked with her just for about two months, and in that short time, he was able to help her raise her score by 250 points. That is absolutely excellent and I am very pleased with his work. I am now getting him to help her in the math section as well. I would highly recommend him.
- Maria G. from Charlotte, NC
My son really enjoyed the lessons he had with Courtney. His ACT score greatly improved and we will continue with lessons in the future. We highly recommend him for any education needs!!
- Randy C. from Huntersville, NC
Courtney was unfailingly patient in our sessions and worked hard to understand my knowledge gaps. He is thoughtful and smart and gave full consideration to all of my questions, no matter how basic. He made use of each minute of the session, and I came away feeling more confident of my skills and newfound knowledge. I plan to sign up for more sessions in the future. Thanks, Courtney.

After meeting with Courtney I was very impressed with him taking the time to read a file I had prepared explaining my sons needs and past grading along with test scores. My son's statement after his first session was "Courtney was awesome". Simply put my son feels very embarrassed about his learning disability and Courtney set him at ease. My high schooler explained to me after a few sessions that Courtney's one of the best teachers he has ever had. I will say as a parent I have noticed Patrick's confidence has a big boost since he has been working with Courtney. There is no doubt in my mind I would highly recommend Courtney and we plan on continuing to use him in the future. KUDOS Courtney.

I am a junior in high school and Mr. H tutored me in Study Skills for about 6 months last year. He spent a lot of time with me and really cared about what he was teaching. He followed up each week to make certain that I was implementing the new skills. He has a lot of life experience so he knows what it takes to do well in school. I learned many valuable organizational and study skills from Mr. H that I am still using this year and I plan to use throughout college. I strongly recommend him to anyone who is looking for a great tutor!
- Lori P. from Matthews, NC
My 7 year old son worked with Courtney on his reading, writing, and physical activity this summer. Courtney is an excellent tutor who I highly recommend. He was patient with my son, while still encouraging him to try his best. Courtney's tutoring style would work with any child's personality. I saw improvement over just a few lessons. Courtney is very professional, easy to reach and very dedicated. You can tell he truly wanted to help my son and that makes all the difference.
- Sharon R. from Belmont, NC
We have been VERY pleased with Courtney. He is obviously very intelligent, he knows his way around the world of academia. He has provided great insights into that world for our son. He has been very flexible with our schedule. Besides teaching my son how to take the test he is also focused on how to teach him to learn and think for life beyond college. Courtney also has shown my son that college is the vehicle to his destination...that he needs to put in the hard work and effort.
- Susan L. from Indian Trail, NC
I, (like the majority of parents on here), reached out to Wyzant to better prepare my son for the SAT and preferably his classes in general...with Courtney I got that and so much more. First, let me say it was a "breath of fresh air" to have in a non-traditional job to have someone as professional as he is. I noticed it right away,...after our initial phone call, he emailed me a thank you letter for my time, and then he followed up thoroughly. Now, as it pertains to the tutoring of my son...two words: highly recommended. Not only did I find a tutor for education for my son but a life coach as well, because applies what Courtney teaches him to his daily life. I am pleased with the quality of service, and the level of excellence Courtney brings with him!
- LaCher W. from Charlotte, NC
We have seen Courtney for a few sessions now and he is very easy to reach by his contact # and also very accessible and accommodating by schedule & needs. He has been very helpful to my son for his study skills for the short term and for life study skills for his future academic success. He has excellent relationship skills with my 13 year old son and is sincerely interested in motivating and teaching my son.
