{Parrish Learning Zone helped my daughter with on-line SAT and college essay preparation. She not only scored in the top 90 percentile on the SAT after working with Lauren Cannavo, she especially benefited from the tutoring she received for her admission essays. My daughter was accepted at Notre Dame, UVA, William and Mary, and received scholarships to George Washington University and the University of Alabama. She was initially deferred at the University of Chicago and waitlisted at University of Michigan and Emory University. She eventually chose not to remain on the waitlists and committed to UVA.Lauren also advised our daughter regarding her submission of a 20 page essay on community service for DECA, a high school business club. Our daughter, along with her partner, won second place in her category at the DECA state competitions in 2019 and 2020, and received second place at the DECA international competition in 2019.Lauren was not only a top-notch professional, she really cared about our daughter and was so pleased about her accomplishments. We are so very grateful to her and Parrish Learning Zone.

{Ms Brown was great! Not only assisted T with her Algebra 2, she also helped her with her confidence. Prior to her first online tutoring session T’s average in her class was low 60’s. She finished the quarter with a 91! They have been great and even helped with a tech issue my child had with her Chromebook.

{Excellent customer service and care, and our tutor, Mr. Slane, is fantastic. Everyone has been helping, courteous, patient, and Mr. Slane made our daughter like Math. The words math and smile can now be in the same sentence.

{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!

{Invaluable! We only attended one month because we took Nina's advice on the issues she believed we were having and took that to the school district. We were prepared by Parrish on his to proceed and how to engage with the school. As a result, the test taking issue was identified and my daughter jumped 250 points in a month. Thank you to Parrish for fixing a problem the schools could not figure out for over 5 years!!! Wish I found you eariler.

{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.

{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.

{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!

{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 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!

{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.

{Parrish Learning Zone has been a true blessing! We brought our child there for tutoring and we have seen measureable improvements in our child's grades and standardized test scores. The owners are extremely professional, and they always find the perfect tutor for our child. PLZ is also an excellent place for students to learn the skills necessary to succeed on college entrance exams and on challenging assignments from school. I would highly recommend PLZ to anyone seeking tutoring services!

{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!

{Parrish Learning Zone is a gift to this community! They are professional, kind and respectful to the young men and women who attend their classes..Most importantly "they keep their word". The information they give you on the class is exactly what they do to help improve your child's SAT score ....the classes are small, the teachers are caring and the time spent is not wasted...when your child attends and puts in the work involved together with Parrish, the results will be another addition to their successful future. Thanks to everyone at Parrish! Will recommend you always...

{Parrish Learning Zone provided an EXCELLENT SAT Prep course for my son, Alex. He received one-on-one instruction in both Math and English. His scores rose DRAMATICALLY!!! His tutors were so good, that he returned to his math tutor to work with her for his AP Statistics course for the remainder of the school year. We highly recommend PLZ for SAT prep and academic tutoring! They took a personal interest in Alex and made a difference! Thank you to Jay, Nina and the tutors!

{I had my 16 year old son do some individual SAT/ACT prep with PLZ before he took his tests, knowing that he needed some work on his verbal and writing skills. His tutor was really helpful in showing him tips and tricks, and his vocabulary skills advanced tremendously in a short amount of time. His first attempt at each test was pretty decent, but he pulled out a great score on the ACT the second time around. Thanks Parrish Learning Zone!

{Our clan is VERY happy with Parrish Learning Zone! Both of our kids started with Study Skills tutoring last school yr (7th & 9th grader). After initial tests showed that both were doing well in reading & comprehension so both were given skills that they will be able to use through the rest of their life. Organization, study, writing papers skills have been given to both kids.We took a break over the summer months & then my son requested Nina’s help 2 weeks into his sophomore year. Why? Nina helps him to organize his schedule! He uses his weekly hour long sessions to make his “mountain” of homework/tasks turn into daily small hills of homework. They work together to constantly re-organize his folders, how he takes notes, how to study while reading his chapters, paper writing organization/writing, etc. He is VERY happy… WE are very happy!Looking forward, we will be using their SAT/ACT prep classes as our son enters the Jr year. Thank you Parrish Learning Zone.

{Parrish Learning Zone has become an integral part of our family. Time and again we’ve turned to their expertise when our teenagers needed help and they have consistently responded to meet our needs. PLZ found an incredibly talented Latin tutor to help decode this challenging language for our sons, with our Jr raising his grade from an 83 to a 96 in Latin IV and our Soph going from a 73 to a 90 in Latin III. Same with Math, one child went from a low B in Adv Algebra II to a strong A in Math Analysis, and more importantly is building a solid foundation in Math along the way so that he can continue to thrive in future math courses. PLZ tutors are great at filling each hour with instruction in both the current course topic as well as basic knowledge necessary to succeed in that course that may have been missed in prior years. And they write amazing notes after every session so that we as parents can stay involved and reinforce lessons at home. We used PLZ for PSAT tutoring with terrific results and our Jr is currently taking the SAT prep class. Imagine teenage boys rapping to SAT vocabulary words, willingly practicing test skills on a regular basis, and actually saying class was “fun” that night!! Nina and Jay are true professionals and care about each of their students, providing tutoring opportunities tailored to each child’s needs. Investing our time and money in PLZ has been worth it, we’ve had tremendous quantifiable results and look forward to continue to work together in the years to come.

{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.
