What students & parents have to say about our tutors
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.
Easily my favorite tutor, and deserves a raise. Ryan helped me consistently and thoughtfully for a whole school year, and is very patient to go over concepts more than once, help devise studying plans, or respond to questions on his own time via email or text. If it wasn't for him, I definitely would not be as far along in my degree as I am now.
Great tutor! Made circuits (the most anti-intuitive topic ever) make sense.
Tristan was great! I was really struggling with Physics and he was very helpful and patient.
Kind and thorough. Mogi made things easier to understand by providing good context. She was always on time.
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!
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.
Katie is a knowledgeable, respectful, flexible, and supportive tutor. If you are struggling in a mathematics course, or even with specific math subjects, I highly recommend requesting Katie at BuffTutor as your tutor. I do not think I could have passed my class without her.
Great tutor. I would definitely recommend Chayenne. She helped me with calculus systems and modeling (Math 1310), which is pretty much Calc 1, and she saved me from failing and I even ended up doing very well in the class. She exceeded all expectations!
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.
