What students & parents have to say about our tutors
This tutor is very useful whenever you're struggling. He can lay out visualizations to portray the big idea behind a concept.
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!
Andrew is the best tutor I've had. He is kind, smart, professional, and helpful. He was able to teach me in a way that fit with my personal learning style. He works hard to make sure you understand the materials you are learning. He also does a really good job of providing encouragement, when you're feeling bad/nervous about a subject. I would highly recommend him to any of my friends!
Kristen was nothing short of fantastic. She was very patient with me, and was able to catch even the smallest of my mistakes. She knew what the course work was trying to get me to do, and showed me how to do it properly without extraneous detail. She is also tremendously friendly, and just a great person in general.
SUPER helpful and knowledgeable about the subjects. Very flexible with scheduling and is patient with learning and mastering. I would highly recommend.
Kristen is the reason I passed Chemistry, thank you so much. You are a great teacher and I am glad to have found someone so helpful.
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.
Ryan is the best tutor I’ve ever had! I have been tutoring with him for over a year in multiple courses including physics and multiple math courses. He did an excellent job tutoring me according to my learning style & is very easy to communicate with in person and online. He also did an excellent job transitioning to online tutoring for social distancing.
Paul is straight to the point with each problem & task, regardless of difficulty or your experience, he will make sure you get it. In the several decades worth of struggles i've had with math (i'm an older student), i've never had someone as helpful as him. He doesn't waste time with ambiguous analogies or force you to guess for 5-10 minutes at a time what is going on with misleading questions, he is very blunt and straight to the point with what each problem is "doing" in the real world or with physical analogies. This is the first person i've interacted with in my life who has adequately and unambiguously explained to me what algebra actually "does" beyond letters and numbers, as is unfortunately taken for granted by most college and high school instructors.
Ryan is truly the best tutor. He is so patient and can explain concepts in many different ways. I would recommend him to anyone.
