What students & parents have to say about our tutors
Nate was an exceptional tutor. He was able to explain very abstract and difficult concepts in Quantum Mechanics in a way that I was really able to absorb. He helped me with homework, study for exams, and really adapted to the way in which I learn. I felt comfortable asking him every question I had, even when I couldn't articulate myself very well. I would definitely recommend Nate.
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.
Sharon is a fantastic tutor who helped me with my high school Calculus class. I could both quantitatively and qualitatively track my improvement with my skills, and I have her to thank for that. If you need a math tutor, you won't be disappointed with her help!
Chayenne has been a fantastic resource for my 9th grade daughter -- they started working together during the fourth quarter of 8th grade, and during that quarter, some summer support and her first semester of 9th grade, she has gained both confidence and a much better understanding of the subject material, and pulled a struggling high C or low B to an A in her advanced math classes. Chayenne is patient and encouraging and made challenging topics much more accessible for my daughter -- I recommend her highly!
Really helpful, especially with breaking down problems into sections to make them easier to solve
Ryan was a great tutor! He was very comfortable with the material I had throughout the semester and helped me learn a lot. He is very thorough in his explanations and makes sure I fully understood the subject.
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!
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.
Ryan was really knowledgeable about circuits and electronics and he took the time for me to understand concepts I was really struggling with. I would recommend Ryan as a tutor to anyone!
Tristan was great! I was really struggling with Physics and he was very helpful and patient.
