What students & parents have to say about our tutors
Mogi went above and beyond my expectations. She was always prepared and had a lesson ready each time. Her use of a tutor session specific notebook was huge and really made me prepared for my quizzes and exams. She put up with my at times stupid questions and never made me feel stupid for asking questions. I would absolutely recommend Mogi to anyone.
Ben is a very knowledgeable in the material I was being tutoring in . Easy to work with & had a flexible schedule. I saw large improvements in the exams scores compared to before I began meeting with him and after I began meeting with him!
Austin took a years worth of difficult to conceptualize Calc II and condensed it down into something that made sense-all in two hour long sessions! I was very pleased with his efficiency-- he did a great job of making sure I understand the work and was ready to keep moving forward before advancing to the next subject. He is supportive, patient, personable, and extremely knowledgeable on the subject: I would recommend him to anyone!
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!
Kristen is the reason I passed Chemistry, thank you so much. You are a great teacher and I am glad to have found someone so helpful.
Aroob is amazing. She is beyond patient and will work through a problem as many times as it takes for you to understand it.
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!
Ryan exceeded all my expectations! I have had him for a few years now and I always feel like I learn more with Ryan than I do in class! He is very good at explaining what you are learning at the pace you need. I would recommend him to anyone needing assistance in engineering classes especially.
Really helpful, especially with breaking down problems into sections to make them easier to solve
Kind and thorough. Mogi made things easier to understand by providing good context. She was always on time.
