What students & parents have to say about our tutors
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.
Ben is a great tutor! He is very smart, nice, and respectful! He definitely knows what he is talking about and genuinely cares that the students he tutors succeed.
Abbey is super easy to work with and extremely helpful! If it weren't for Abbey's help I wouldn't have done as well as I did in Spanish by the end of the semester. After spending a couple of weeks working with Abbey, I went up two letter grades in Spanish and she really takes the time to make sure you know the ins and outs. I would definitely recommend working with Abbey to anybody in need of some help!
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!
We have a very good experience with Ryan we recommend him because he is kind patient caring and a great tutor
Ryan is truly the best tutor. He is so patient and can explain concepts in many different ways. I would recommend him to anyone.
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!
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.
Sharon is the reason why I passed my calculus course. I always felt lost in calc, and constantly struggled but working with her for a semester completely changed my mindset. For the first time, I truly understood the course and my grades reflected that. And I look forward to continue to work with her for the rest of my calculus courses.
