What students & parents have to say about our tutors
Absolutely amazing, her chemistry knowledge is outstanding and she really adapts to your learning style.
SUPER helpful and knowledgeable about the subjects. Very flexible with scheduling and is patient with learning and mastering. I would highly recommend.
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.
Adam is a great tutor. I never brought him a question he wasn't able to answer. Highly recommended.
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.
Ashkan was very well organized with time and managed to help me understand the subject clearly. If it weren’t for him, I’d fail the class.
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.
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.
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.
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.
