What students & parents have to say about our tutors
Sharon is an amazing tutor! She comes prepared with worked out examples that you send into her pre-tutor session. They are very well written out and she has really good handwriting (for all of those who can't stand professors who don't know how to write legibly). Rather than just tell you how to do the problems, she explains each step thoroughly and why it is important in order to get the correct answer. Lastly, she is very affordable compared to other tutors.
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!
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!
Art is the best tutor I have had, I have confidence in Math again, I was failing PreCalc and I had a B+ at the end of my online course
Ryan is an extremely talented but empathetic person. He understands that individuals are different and tailors his approach to tutoring accordingly.
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.
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.
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.
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.
