What students & parents have to say about our tutors
Chayenne was amazing! Helped me so much with Calculus, and she's extremely knowledgeable about everything, even with no prior warning about what we were going to work on. 10/10. She's awesome!
Ryan is truly the best tutor. He is so patient and can explain concepts in many different ways. I would recommend him to anyone.
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.
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!
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.
Very good tutor, she obviously cares about what she is doing (because she is majoring in math education) and I can tell she will be a good teacher soon.
Kristen was nothing short of fantastic. She was very patient with me, and was able to catch even the smallest of my mistakes. She knew what the course work was trying to get me to do, and showed me how to do it properly without extraneous detail. She is also tremendously friendly, and just a great person in general.
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.
Ryan is an extremely talented but empathetic person. He understands that individuals are different and tailors his approach to tutoring accordingly.
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.
