My lesson was great. I’ve struggled for years to really get everything to come together, and I’m already starting to see and feel how Rick is, and will continue to, make that happen.

· Chemistry · In studio
I had not taken chemistry since high school, i'm 24 and pursuing a career in pharmacy. I know I'm smart but I knew nothing about chemistry and my friend recommended I get a tutor. Onur did not take it easy on me but he explained everything about chemistry and we practiced until I had it down. I made an A in my first chemistry class and i'm so glad I had onur to give me the right foundation in science as I start my journey in the science field.

About LAura
Are you learning spanish so you can travel the world to spanish speaking countries? Does someone close to you speak spanish and you want to be able to communicate with them? Whatever your reason, you can do it! I take a very immersion based approach. I think the more you hear and practice- the more naturally it will come to you. I am a very easy going person who just wants to help you learn! I learned the majority of my spanish sitting around a table of spanish speaking adults, trying to understand each of the different conversations going on all around me. Of course you need to know the basics first but I will get you there!

On my free time I travel to spanish speaking countries. I love to get to know people of different cultures whom I can actually communicate with. Its an amazing feeling. Let's get you to that point! I look forward
to helping you!
