What students & parents have to say about our tutors
Aroob is a super tutor! She has helped my daughter turn her grade in an advanced math class in high school around with excellent advice, practical work for her to do to get a stronger grasp on the material, and she is friendly, 100% appropriate, and is amazing with helping to build my daughter's overall confidence. We have recommended to her friends who have also had great results. We all really like her so much!
Ryan is truly the best tutor. He is so patient and can explain concepts in many different ways. I would recommend him to anyone.
Paul is easy to communicate with and is a patient tutor. Paul has been tutoring my daughter for 1 1/2 years and we owe him her success. In the fall, I plan on having both my children see Paul on a weekly basis. He's amazing! I wish that he was my tutor when I was in school.
Mogi went above and beyond my expectations. She was always prepared and had a lesson ready each time. Her use of a tutor session specific notebook was huge and really made me prepared for my quizzes and exams. She put up with my at times stupid questions and never made me feel stupid for asking questions. I would absolutely recommend Mogi to anyone.
Great experience! Paul helped raise my grade and explained lots of things that were never clear in lecture. He knows what material is covered in physics classes and can even help you understand things ahead of time. I would definitely recommend him as a tutor!
Ryan LaCount is an excellent calculus tutor. It is clear that he not only understands how to explain the math, but also how to address student's concerns about specific math challenges. He often provided more than one explanation for a concept without even being asked, which is more than most high school math teachers provide! If you are interested in knowing the "why" behind your math, Ryan will be a great resource.
Art patiently and thoroughly explains material that are confusing or difficult to work out, not just in one way but many. He goes beyond expectations by making sure that success is met, not just in the session with him, but beyond in the classroom and on exams.
Laura was really great with explaining things in an easier way. This allowed me to see things in a different manner. She was really good at explaining things in a visual because I am a very visual learner. She is really easy to schedule with and talk to! She has helped me improve so much over the course of the semester!
Sharon is truly an awesome person to work with. She always knows what she is doing and makes time for all of her clients. I would 100 percent reccomend her to anyone struggling in math.
William was fantastic! Was willing to meet on pretty short notice (helpful if you're panicking about an exam) and sent some very helpful practice problems when the study guide wasn't enough. Definitely helped my grade a bunch for a class that would've burnt me out quickly.
