What students & parents have to say about our tutors
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!
Aroob is amazing. She is beyond patient and will work through a problem as many times as it takes for you to understand it.
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!
SUPER helpful and knowledgeable about the subjects. Very flexible with scheduling and is patient with learning and mastering. I would highly recommend.
Mogi once again exceeded my expectations. She was very flexible with scheduling especially around midterms for meeting for extra sessions. She made the material very relatable and easier to understand. Her use of a notebook made homework easier with another set of notes to reference and examples of similar questions to what would be on a test made exams much less stressful.
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.
Paul is straight to the point with each problem & task, regardless of difficulty or your experience, he will make sure you get it. In the several decades worth of struggles i've had with math (i'm an older student), i've never had someone as helpful as him. He doesn't waste time with ambiguous analogies or force you to guess for 5-10 minutes at a time what is going on with misleading questions, he is very blunt and straight to the point with what each problem is "doing" in the real world or with physical analogies. This is the first person i've interacted with in my life who has adequately and unambiguously explained to me what algebra actually "does" beyond letters and numbers, as is unfortunately taken for granted by most college and high school instructors.
I have had many tutors but with Ryan I was able to go from getting C's and D's to straight A's consistently. Would absolutely recommend Ryan to anyone. 10/10 Best tutor
Absolutely amazing, her chemistry knowledge is outstanding and she really adapts to your learning style.
