What students & parents have to say about our tutors
She did a really good job of using our time efficiently, but never rushed me. She helped make sure I understood the concepts. She was really good at making herself available to me even outside of our sessions. She was very patient with me and took the time to explain the concepts I was struggling with so that I could understand them better.
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.
Great tutor. I would definitely recommend Chayenne. She helped me with calculus systems and modeling (Math 1310), which is pretty much Calc 1, and she saved me from failing and I even ended up doing very well in the class. She exceeded all expectations!
Zachary is great at explaining difficult topics in a way that any one could understand. He also is able to relate chemistry concepts to everyday life in a meaningful way.
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.
You will simply not find a tutor for classes in the upper level of electrical engineering other than Ryan. They simply do not exist. He is phenomenally well informed on course topics and styles of assignments and testing.
Working with Luis was a truly rewarding experience. He is an incredible person and a fantastic tutor; incredibly patient, knowledgeable, and always prepared to answer any questions I had. He is excellent in getting the student to consider the possible answer which can boost confidence. It’s clear that he's passionate about the material and knows how to teach it well—he is supportive, attentive to pace, and just a really nice guy. He gave me suggestions for homework and a lot of great resources to better my understanding in the subject. I will surely be using his services in the near future.
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.
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.
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!
