What students & parents have to say about our tutors
Ben is a great tutor! He is very smart, nice, and respectful! He definitely knows what he is talking about and genuinely cares that the students he tutors succeed.
Great tutor! Made circuits (the most anti-intuitive topic ever) make sense.
Sharon is a fantastic tutor who helped me with my high school Calculus class. I could both quantitatively and qualitatively track my improvement with my skills, and I have her to thank for that. If you need a math tutor, you won't be disappointed with her help!
I had an excellent experience with Mogi this semester. I really struggled with the material at the start of the semester and had a hard time grasping concepts in class. She is an excellent teacher and makes sure you are fully able to understand the material in depth, not just memorize how to do a problem. If something did not make sense to me, she was able to explain the material in multiple ways, which I found very helpful. As a result of meeting with Mogi throughout the semester I was able to achieve a high A in my class overall.
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.
Working with Luis was a truly rewarding experience. He is an incredible person and a fantastic tutor; incredibly patient, knowledgeable, and always prepared to answer any questions I had. He is excellent in getting the student to consider the possible answer which can boost confidence. It’s clear that he's passionate about the material and knows how to teach it well—he is supportive, attentive to pace, and just a really nice guy. He gave me suggestions for homework and a lot of great resources to better my understanding in the subject. I will surely be using his services in the near future.
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.
Chayenne was amazing! Helped me so much with Calculus, and she's extremely knowledgeable about everything, even with no prior warning about what we were going to work on. 10/10. She's awesome!
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.
Ben is a very knowledgeable in the material I was being tutoring in . Easy to work with & had a flexible schedule. I saw large improvements in the exams scores compared to before I began meeting with him and after I began meeting with him!
