What students & parents have to say about our tutors
Adam is a great tutor. I never brought him a question he wasn't able to answer. Highly recommended.
She did a really good job of using our time efficiently, but never rushed me. She helped make sure I understood the concepts. She was really good at making herself available to me even outside of our sessions. She was very patient with me and took the time to explain the concepts I was struggling with so that I could understand them better.
Great tutor. Improved my grade significantly after two sessions
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.
Luke was an integral aspect to my academic success this last semester. His understanding of engineering and mathematical concepts are incredible, and his ability to take complex ideas and break them down into understandable bits of information is amazing. Luke is incredibly patient, flexible, and accommodating. His easy-going personality always made me feel comfortable asking any sort of question and his answers were always genuine and well-informed. I would recommend Luke to anyone trying to pass a class, improve their grade, or develop a deeper understanding of the material their class is covering. I cannot thank Luke enough for the help he has given me and am happy to be able to consider him both a mentor and a friend now.
Nate was an exceptional tutor. He was able to explain very abstract and difficult concepts in Quantum Mechanics in a way that I was really able to absorb. He helped me with homework, study for exams, and really adapted to the way in which I learn. I felt comfortable asking him every question I had, even when I couldn't articulate myself very well. I would definitely recommend Nate.
Elizabeth is a good tutor. She was professional and responsive to our scheduling requests. Each session, she would show up prepared and help my son to thoroughly review his past week's course material. Highly recommended.
Chayenne has been a fantastic resource for my 9th grade daughter -- they started working together during the fourth quarter of 8th grade, and during that quarter, some summer support and her first semester of 9th grade, she has gained both confidence and a much better understanding of the subject material, and pulled a struggling high C or low B to an A in her advanced math classes. Chayenne is patient and encouraging and made challenging topics much more accessible for my daughter -- I recommend her highly!
Ryan is truly the best tutor. He is so patient and can explain concepts in many different ways. I would recommend him to anyone.
she is the best tutor I have ever had. I have developed as a writer and she knew about most of the topics I had to write on which was very helpful.
