We are big fans of their tutoring and test-prep services. We first sent our oldest son to Parrish for help with Algebra and Calculus four years ago and then again two years ago to help him prepare for the ACT. He is now at an elite liberal arts college. We currently send our youngest -- a 12-year-old -- for help with Algebra, and we just got his first 9-weeks grades -- an "A." He would not have had an "A" without Parrish. Most if not all of the tutors are high school teachers. They're all great with kids -- both in terms of teaching and motivating. We are very happy to recommend Parrish Learning Zone.

We have had a wonderful experience with PLZ. Nina does an excellent job identifying a student's needs and pairing them with the appropriate tutor. Our child has worked with the same math tutor for several years. He has taken the time to know our child, who enjoys the tutoring sessions. These sessions reinforce concepts from the classroom and help develop study skills in other areas of study. The entire team is kind and compassionate - they understand that each student has unique strengths and needs. We are fortunate to have our child working with PLZ for math and now SAT prep. We highly recommend PLZ without reservations.

I can't say enough good things about Parrish Learning Zone. My son has historically suffered from low reading comprehension. I felt he needed a little extra help so I contacted Parrish Learning Zone. The owners at Parrish matched my son with the perfect tutor for him, they developed a rapport almost immediately. He is now in 8th grade and doing well in all his classes. My son is very active in school sports and the staff at Parrish are always very accommodating. They always reschedule with no problems. My son even likes to go early to chat with Sheila.

It's hard to put into words how amazing PLZ and staff are! My son has been tutored there for several years. When he started he could not read and was well below grade level. I can say that he now can read, write and spell. As his mother I felt helpless! Nina has supported him and encourage us through the years. She always goes above and beyond. They truly hire staff that care about each child and want to help them each reach there academic goals!

I highly recommend Parrish Learning Zone. My daughter was able to achieve the SAT score she was aiming for with the help of her Math (Mr. James Slane) and English (Mrs. Lauren Cannavo) tutors. Not only did they help her with practice tests but they also boosted her confidence in taking the SAT. The owners (Nina and Jay) were always prompt in answering my emails. They are very accommodating and worked around my daughter’s schedule (thank you Shiela for all your help in finding available dates for my daughter to meet with her tutors). Thank you Parrish Learning Zone for helping my daughter achieve her goal!

My daughter completed 8 tutoring sessions specifically for the Math portion of the SAT. The lessons were catered to what she missed on the sample SAT that they administered. She brought her score up 180 points and now has excellent scores for her college applications. I highly recommend PLZ.

My daughter has a math learning disability and hated math. We started working with Nina Parrish and stuck with it for several months. Her grades have improved, but more importantly, so has her self confidence. She now loves going to work on math and will even work on it at home by herself. We are grateful for Parrish Learning Zone!

Mr. Chaves is an extremely gifted chemistry teacher. It's such a difficult subject--my son was drowning by the time we found PLZ. This was truly a last ditch effort on our part. Mr. Chaves was able to turn that ship around after only 4 lessons and my son passed the SOL! He was able to distill difficult concepts in a way that made them comprehensible and he was patient and kind and gave my son the confidence to succeed. His actual eacher expressed surprise and made a point of telling him he didn't know how he did it but he was impressed. It takes a gifted teacher to get results like that.I only wish we'd found PLZ and Mr. Chaves in the beginning of the school year.

Awesome! Very structured and student focused - they identified the areas of weakness and turned those into areas of strength in a very short amount of time. I loved the communication from the tutor and the company. I received a specific report of my child's tutoring session including improvements and areas that needed continued work. I received reminders of upcoming tutor sessions - which I needed!! I felt the individual attention and service was worth every penny AND found the prices to be much more reasonable that other tutors in the area. I would HIGHLY recommend Parrish Learning Zone to any parent that needs to find highly competent tutoring help for their child. Parrish is simply the best!

An excellent place to take your kids for any tutoring needs! PLZ is a very personalized and hands on service! Both of my teenage boys have been through here for various reasons and I know we will continue to make use of them!

I am extremely thankful to Parrish Learning Zone. I have a son that is a freshman in college majoring in mechanical engineering. I am so glad that we found out about the Parrish Learning Zone because they were very caring and really worked hard around my sons high school football schedule to ensure that he received all of the needed instruction in order to do well on the SAT testing. It was a great investment for his future. I believe this experience prepared my son for the transition to college life. He was able to attend a top engineering college and to play football there. My daughter is a senior in high school now and was admitted into two of the top ranked public schools in Virginia. She will be a freshman at one of these schools next year. She also was enrolled in the Parrish Learning Zone for preparation for the SAT. I am again thankful to the Parrish Learning Zone and feel that this was a great long term investment into their futures. I would strongly recommend the Parrish Learning Zone to anyone looking for an environment that offers a caring and knowledgeable approach to educating students. They are the best.
