What students & parents have to say about our tutors
Chayenne helped our daughter finish her last quarter of 9th grade math strong; she is kind and warm and my daughter likes working with her. She was able to assess where my daughter's skills were coming up short and focus on those to bring her grade up at the end of a tough quarter. I recommend her wholeheartedly.
Aroob is amazing. She is beyond patient and will work through a problem as many times as it takes for you to understand it.
Ryan exceeded all my expectations! I have had him for a few years now and I always feel like I learn more with Ryan than I do in class! He is very good at explaining what you are learning at the pace you need. I would recommend him to anyone needing assistance in engineering classes especially.
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.
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.
I have had many tutors but with Ryan I was able to go from getting C's and D's to straight A's consistently. Would absolutely recommend Ryan to anyone. 10/10 Best 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!
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!
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.
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.
