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.
Literally the only reason I was able to pass Economics with an A
Brendon does a good job of walking you through math. I would recommend him to someone who has a higher level of math. I am terrible at math, so the majority of the things I was trying to learn seemed impossible. I think if I was better at math, I would have worked better with Brendon, because he shows you ways to do the math.
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.
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.
William was fantastic! Was willing to meet on pretty short notice (helpful if you're panicking about an exam) and sent some very helpful practice problems when the study guide wasn't enough. Definitely helped my grade a bunch for a class that would've burnt me out quickly.
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!
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 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!
Ryan is the best tutor I’ve ever had! I have been tutoring with him for over a year in multiple courses including physics and multiple math courses. He did an excellent job tutoring me according to my learning style & is very easy to communicate with in person and online. He also did an excellent job transitioning to online tutoring for social distancing.
