Jay is a great, patient, kind teacher. He was very considerate and willing to teach, considering my goals and level, stretching when he sees that is possible, but respecting my time. I super recommend him.
Tina B.
Jay was fantastic for my first lesson. He was easy going and sweet. He took time to understand what I was all about and what I was looking for out of my lessons. He encouraged me to speak some Korean and try out some words, but kept most of our communication in English so I could to understand and follow along. I highly recommend him if you are looking for a low pressure learning environment.

About Hector

Hi! My name is Hector and I earned a degree in Neuroscience, and while learning the facts about the brain is exciting, it's even more amazing to witness the excitement from the faces I've taught when they understood the concept they were struggling with. It's so much more rewarding to see the glow

Demian
Hector is very helpful! In chemistry, he knew his information well and was eager in explaining things followed by checking to make sure we understood the lesson. He takes responsibility in teaching and has a very kind personality. I like to study with him.
Alex
His passion for the betterment of people and his ability to make complex topics so simplistic truly make him a devoted and effective tutor.
Kelsey
I've known Hector for a few years now, and I haven't met anyone as passionate when it comes to his work.
Hector puts forth 110% towards his work and students to ensure quality material. He is patient, and is more than happy to clarify any questions.
Not only does his passion lies within teaching, but he is continulusly striving to learn new things. He loves to analyze complex sciences and the world around him, and as an outcome he formulates fascinating theories. Not only is a great teacher, but a friend who truly inspires those around him.

Daniel helped me with SAT Math Tutoring and exceeded my expectations! With only 2 weeks to works with him I gained 50 points. He broke down the math problems to the basics and never gave up until I understood the problem completely. He is professional and was extremely patient with me throughout our tutoring sessions. I would most definitely work with him again! Thank you Daniel!!!

"Colin is absolutely amazing teacher!
Last time I studied math was 20+ years. I am 40 years old and about to finish my second degree CRJ, and like many others I left math class at the end. Taking the math prep test (which I failed) placed me almost in kindergarten..Lol! and I knew I needed help to re-learn math. I am so happy Colin answered my request (I sent 15 requests, and only 2 teachers answered). I wanted to start eating the study guide provided by CSN and just focus on the topics, but Colin wanted to show me the "why we have numbers, type of numbers, etc" definitely I wanted to fly before I could walk, and I am so grateful he had a different plan............because IT MAKE SENSE!
I mentioned I prefered to have a lobotomy (siks!) instead of facing math in my 40's because I never had a chance to understand math, I just digested the fact I was going to fail and obtain an "s" for grade. I am looking forward to like, learn, and comprehend math with Colin's help so I can graduate in December 2018.
Thanks Colin :)"

"Marie A. Is an awesome teacher, she knows how to set the atmosphere for her students to learn the information she's sharing with them. It was an honor to be part of her class because when I didn't understand something she came down to my level of understanding to help me understand what I did not understand. She's very caring, outgoing, amazing personality and she's a person that love to encourage people. I've never encounter such a loving teacher, meeting her triggers me to become a teacher myself."

Most importantly, Colin never made me feel incapable when it came to doing the work."

"Colin is amazing. I was preparing to take the AFOQTS and my first score was 70... I scheduled lessons with Colin and 2 weeks later I scored a 98 on the actual test! Colin was extremely good at communicating with me, being flexible in our lessons and adopting what he was teaching to exactly what I needed. Like me he had to "relearn" math as an adult and because of that he is able to explain things so that they make sense logically rather than give formulas to memorize like my horrible public school teachers.

I really cannot recommend him enough, thank you for all your help Colin!"
