“When Davyon, a five-year-old kindergartner, began the Richards Learning Systems® (RLS) program, he could identify just 5 lower case sounds. …In just 3 weeks, Davyon completed concept #1, learning ten consonant sounds and short vowel ‘A’.”

“North Coast Tutoring has made a very positive impact on my son’s educational experience. The tutors are extremely professional, caring and passionate about teaching. Also, the staff is so supportive and always keeps the family’s best interest in mind.”
— Christine, Cleveland

“I called North Coast in desperate need of a tutor that could help my daughter get through Honors Chemistry. Within 24 hours of my phone call, I was given a name of a tutor that Nikki at North Coast thought would be a good match for my child. She was certainly right! Her grades have already seen improvement and my daughter looks forward to Deanna coming every week. The customer service I received was phenomenal!!!”
— Leslie, Beachwood

“Our daughter started tutoring with North Coast over six years ago, needing help with high school algebra, geometry and college level algebra. What a difference it made in her life. As much as you think you can help your child, sometimes it’s necessary to have someone outside the family to help. Her tutors were very experienced and knowledgeable and always supportive. Last semester at college, she took a college level algebra class and received an A with a B+ on her final. What a memorable day for us and the sense of accomplishment for her was beyond words. She will need to take a statistics class for her major and we will be definitely contacting North Coast for help. For our family, it was a financial commitment, but worth the cost for what she accomplished. A team effort by our daughter and her dedicated tutors. I would encourage anyone whose child is struggling to use this service.”
— Karen, Willoughby Hills

“I have been using North Coast Education Services for a few years now. This is truly a 5 star company. The tutor, Linda, is a perfect for my daughter’s academic needs. Linda is always on time, prepared for the lessons needed and makes sure that my daughter is comfortable with the information before she leaves. The main office calls on a monthly basis to make sure that we are happy with the service and always asks if anymore can be done. I cannot write enough great things about this tutor and company!”
— Jane, Solon

“The tutor was very punctual. That means a lot – I have a tight schedule. From the moment I called to inquire of your services, everyone was so nice and helpful. I felt very comfortable explaining what I needed and those needs were met. Thank you so much!”
— Shelia, Kirtland

“David is the consummate education professional. He quickly established an excellent working relationship with my son. He now feels comfortable retaking the ACT!”
— Margaret, Shaker Heights

— Michael, Chagrin Falls

“My son has shown a marked improvement in Algebra II since he started working with Kurt. From a C to an A-! We are thrilled because he actually asks to work with Kurt weekly!”
— Stacey, Beachwood

“Pricing was upfront, whereas Huntington [Learning Center] wouldn’t even give us an estimate without a $200 test first. The one-on-one was much better than an SAT class and we could have a schedule that didn’t overwhelm my son. You met our needs on our schedule and the tutor was a great match.”
— Kattie, Mentor-on-the-Lake

“We have been using North Coast for the last 9 years for both my children. Would not go to any other tutoring place. Great tutors, friendly and efficient staff. Very professional and educated.”

Read what our students have to say about their tutoring experience:

“You’ll be happy to know that I got my report card about a week ago, and it’s my best ever! Mom and Dad are proud of me. I’d really be happy if you wrote back, after reading this so I can get your opinion on my grades – and just because I want to hear how you’re doing. Thanks for everything – see you in a couple of months!”
— Bryn, Northeast Ohio

“[My tutor] would stop at nothing to make sure my education was done right, and then some. She is great at making things interesting for me. She could turn an ordinary math problem into something I could use. She makes it very easy for me to ask questions if I don’t understand. She makes education fun.

Second is Carole Richards. Although usually tucked behind the scenes, don’t let that fool you. She is working…to make sure me, and all of her other clients, have the best education possible. I may have said client, and that is the correct word, but she doesn’t see me as a dollar sign or a number. She sees me for me, and I’m really sure it’s the same for all of the other kids who are so lucky to have her.”
— Rob, Rock Creek

“Before coming to North Coast, I thoroughly investigated other tutoring facilities and found Carole Richards, of North Coast, to be competent and concerned. She introduced me to a method of reading and spelling based on phonetics… This program is simplistic in its structure and easy to learn, if an honest effort is made. Carole’s command of this tutoring method has made it easier for me to grasp the concepts being stressed.

Four months ago I was diagnosed as having a learning disability – developmental reading disorder. Today, with the skills I’ve learned, and those I am looking forward to mastering, I say this man has no disability. I look forward to a future of learning, as opposed to one of hiding my illiteracy.”
— Robert, Cleveland

“Everyone at North Coast is so friendly and helpful.  My daughter receives the Jon Peterson Scholarship, and North Coast guides us each step of the way and provides helpful information for us.  The tutors we have been assigned through North Coast have been great!  North Coast really takes the time to match what the student needs with what the tutor can provide, and if something doesn’t work out, North Coast is always willing to make adjustments.  I really believe my daughter is more successful in school because of the services we receive through North Coast.”
— Nancy, Chardon
