Course: Calculus-based Physics 1 - 1110 Satisfactory Performance

Mogi is *so* helpful and patient. She was able to explain things I didn't realize I hadn't understood, in a way that I could actually remember and use after the session was over. She's extremely kind and approachable, and I never felt like I was asking "dumb" questions, which was a relief because when I came to her I was hugely self-conscious of my ability to understand physics. She modeled physics thinking in a way that made me much more comfortable with the subject matter. She was also experienced and thoughtful in her tutoring methods. I honestly felt so comfortable when I would come to sessions because I knew I would come out less confused and more knowledgeable. She was always completely professional and prepared. I wondered before the first session if the hourly rate was reasonable, and it was. You absolutely get what you pay for, which is a professional tutor with expert-level experience who knows the class you're in, and who will go the extra mile to make sure you understand what you need to. Thank you Mogi! With your help I was able to transfer from the college of Arts and Sciences to the College of Engineering and Applied Sciences, something I wasn't sure I would ever be able to do. I get to be an engineer!! I can't recommend Mogi enough.

Course: Calc 3 (MATH 2400) & Material Science Chemistry (MCEN 1023) Satisfactory Performance

Mogi once again exceeded my expectations. She was very flexible with scheduling especially around midterms for meeting for extra sessions. She made the material very relatable and easier to understand. Her use of a notebook made homework easier with another set of notes to reference and examples of similar questions to what would be on a test made exams much less stressful.

John S - CU Boulder , January 2018

Course: Phys 1120 Satisfactory Performance

Mogi went above and beyond my expectations. She was always prepared and had a lesson ready each time. Her use of a tutor session specific notebook was huge and really made me prepared for my quizzes and exams. She put up with my at times stupid questions and never made me feel stupid for asking questions. I would absolutely recommend Mogi to anyone.

John S - CU Boulder , May 2017

Course: Organic Chemistry 1 Satisfactory Performance

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.

Rebecca L , January 2017

Course: Physics 2020 Satisfactory Performance

Mogi is great at identifying exactly where I was falling short in my understanding of specific concepts. She doesn't just reteach you what is already covered in lectures, homework, etc. She is able to tailor explanations to my learning style, etc.

Angie N - University Of Colorado, Boulder , May 2016

Course: MATH_2300 Satisfactory Performance

Mogi does an excellent job in helping you understand the material. She will go above and beyond to make sure you understand, whether its meeting up in the weekend, arranging extra sessions or taking you through the problem step by step. I would definitely recommend Mogi to anybody needing help with their courses and I will definitely go straight to her if I ever need help with any of the subjects she covers.

Ahmed F - University Of Colorado, Boulder , May 2016

Course: Materials and Energy Balances Satisfactory Performance

Mogi is a great tutor and will be willing to help you with whatever class problems you have. Even if it isn't the class she prepared for, if you have a quick question, she will be more than likely to help you. She is also very knowledgeable about the material she's helping you with. All around a great tutor.

Allie K - University Of Colorado, Boulder , January 2016

Course: Linear algebra Satisfactory Performance

A truly wonderful person who makes taking your course feel like a team effort. She pushes you to put in the time necessary and gives all the support and resources you would ever need. She is much more than just a tutor.

Callie J - University Of Colorado, Boulder , January 2016

Course: APPM 1350 and CHEN 1211 Satisfactory Performance

Mogi is the best tutor I ever had, got me through my first semester as an engineering student. She'll always give up her own time to fit to your schedule and won't give up on a concept until she knows you understand it. She's never not been able to answer questions I've had.

MyKala C - University Of Colorado, Boulder , January 2016

Course: CHEM 1251 & CALC 1300 Satisfactory Performance

Zachary L - University Of Colorado, Boulder , December 2015

Course: APPM 1360 Satisfactory Performance

Mogi is a great tutor. She's very knowledgeable in the subjects she tutors for and helps break down the concepts so you can understand them better. When doing practice problems she has the student explain what they are doing and why they are doing it and helps them if they are lost.

Emily R - University Of Colorado, Boulder , August 2015

Course: CHEM 1134 Satisfactory Performance

Some specific things Mogi did that were helpful to me are: - was flexible with timing - allowed for two hour sessions on weekends and extra sessions when needed - when giving explanations she would go through things in detail, and constantly check for understanding by asking questions - if i didn't understand an explanation she gave, she would always have a backup explanation with a different approach that I would understand - when covering a difficult problem she would go back and give an overview of the broader topic as needed - wrote down what she said (formulas/processes and such) and age me those sheets as needed - was very personable and understanding: never made me feel stupid or showed any frustration with me if I couldn't grasp a topic - she is very easy to be comfortable around, which makes it easier to ask her questions and admit if you need a more detailed or different explanation

Kelsey C - University Of Colorado, Boulder , May 2015

Mogi is great! She is one of the best tutors I have ever had.

Shannon D - University Of Colorado, Boulder , January 2015

Course: Calculus 3 (APPM 2350) Satisfactory Performance

Mogi is fantastic! I have worked with her for 3 semesters, from Calc 1 to Calc 3. My tutoring sessions with her not only got me through Calculus, but she also taught me how to think critically and sort of develop a 'math brain.' I am now able to attack difficult problems on my own, where as before I didn't even know where to start!

Millicent G - University Of Colorado, Boulder , January 2015

Course: Organic chemistry Satisfactory Performance

Mogi is the best of the best-- she has tutored me through general and organic chemistry and has helped me grasp each subject more thoroughly than I would have on my own. It is obvious that she cares deeply about my education and success. To top it off she is personable and kind and never made me feel silly for not understanding something. THANK YOU MOGI, I will miss you!

Mogi exceeded my expectations at every meeting. She was always prepared and aware of the concepts we were covering that day. She adapted to my learning style and presented the material in a way that made it easy to learn.

Lan I - University Of Colorado, Boulder , August 2014

Course: Calculus 3 Satisfactory Performance

Mogi takes the time to make sure you truly know how every bit and piece of a concept works together. She can approach problems from multiple different angles to figure out how best to help you get to a solution. Basically Mogi is an amazing tutor and she has helped me navigate the concepts of Calculus 3. She helped me to nearly double my second exam score after just a few sessions. She is fantastic at what she does and she will keep working with you until she is positive you have a concept down pat. I would very highly recommend her!

Megan T - University Of Colorado, Boulder , May 2014

Course: CHEM1113 Satisfactory Performance

Mogi is a GREAT tutor. She is able to quickly adapt her teaching style to best fit the student. She is extremely patient and understanding of a busy college schedule. I always felt comfortable asking her any question I had and she would always take the time to explain the material in a way that made me feel empowered and allowed me to come to my own conclusions through deeper understanding as opposed to just being told the answer. She was always prepared, professional, and punctual. I will definitely be using her for help in future CHEM courses.

Lan I - University Of Colorado, Boulder , January 2014

Course: Calc 1, Gen Chem Engineers Satisfactory Performance

Mogi is amazing, I have tried multiple other Tutors and she has been by far the most knowledgable and helpful. I felt so much more prepared and confident after each session.

Madison H - University Of Colorado, Boulder , December 2012

Course: PHYS 1110 Satisfactory Performance

Amazing tutor. Obviously not perfect, but as close as you can get. Mogi is very hard working and understanding. She knows the content thoroughly and can explain things in "dumb people" terms. Even if my grade is not what I would like it to be, this is because I did not do enough work to compliment Mogi's hard work.
