What students & parents have to say about our tutors
Luis is a great tutor. He is very knowledgable and has a great way of explaining things. I would highly recommend him to anyone.
Ryan is truly the best tutor. He is so patient and can explain concepts in many different ways. I would recommend him to anyone.
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!
Laura was really great with explaining things in an easier way. This allowed me to see things in a different manner. She was really good at explaining things in a visual because I am a very visual learner. She is really easy to schedule with and talk to! She has helped me improve so much over the course of the semester!
Art patiently and thoroughly explains material that are confusing or difficult to work out, not just in one way but many. He goes beyond expectations by making sure that success is met, not just in the session with him, but beyond in the classroom and on exams.
Ryan was very clear in his explanations and extremely helpful. The environment he creates is very welcoming and did not make me feel bad for not knowing things. He got me A's on all of my tests and in the class itself. He is super nice and knowledgeable and I highly recommend him.
He got me from a C last semester to a B+ in my chemistry course
Ryan is awesome! He put everything into perspective and made physics fun. He helped me to progress as a learner and realize that there is always a way to solve a problem! Ryan could not have done a better job.
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!
Very good tutor, she obviously cares about what she is doing (because she is majoring in math education) and I can tell she will be a good teacher soon.
