Adam is a really great listener and excellent source of thought provoking, well timed input that has really helped me develop and improve my story organically without changing its intention with strong suggestions as most people's feedback often attempts to do. If you're looking for a hand in finding your own voice and to strengthen your writing skills or excellent constructive feedback for your story then look no further.

Adam Gaines is a godsend. I was really lucky to have his guidance over the years which helped my craft and dedication to the art of writing greatly. He is a proven writer with legitimate credits but also, he actually cares. He is always ready to help and takes your material seriously which is most important when you want honest feedback and guidance. He has an encyclopedic knowledge of films, screenwriting, and the industry that is both impressive and beneficial. He is a wonderful friend and mentor who will always have a great recommendation or suggestion ready for your work and/or career. Adam is an extremely open individual with an immense passion for film and the craft of screenwriting which becomes infectious. That trait is crucial since it keeps you driven to keep learning and grow. He is also an excellent conversationalist with his own voice which is truly refreshing. Highly recommend.

Adam gives you insightful comments on how to make you a better writer. He knows what good dialogue sounds like and with a couple suggestions you instantly know how to re-work your writing to give it a natural flow.

If you are looking for an enthusiastic teacher with a love for teaching, you have found the right person. Haitham Kassem goes out of his way to make sure the student comprehends the lesson. He patiently explains again and again until he is certain that the student understands. He engages the student in his lessons, ensuring that the student will stay interested in the lesson. His friendly demeanor makes him easy to talk to and to understand.
Sumaya
Honestly one of the best instructors I have came across within my high school journey. Not only does he teach with clear and concrete steps on how to tackle on high comprehension questions, he offers the background knowledge on how algebraic formulas were formed. I used to be very weak in Algebra 1 and Geometry, however I began to improve tremendously after meeting this instructor!
Sarah
Haitham Kassem teaches like no one else. He goes in depth in to the topic and makes sure that you understand what he is teaching. He tells his students to stop him and ask if they don't understand something. He is very dynamic and engages the student. He connects each lesson to the bigger picture and leaves the student with a through and holistic understanding of the subject, which is something not every teacher cares about or is capable of giving.

I am an engineer, but I am capable of communicating, unlike the stereotype. I have tutored many different types of students including medical students, engineers, business majors, and many more.

"We absolutely loved Erin. What a sweetheart! She was recommended to us by friends and we were so happy to have her work with our son, Joey. Erin helped him with his Calculus work and preparing for the ACT his senior year of high school. Joey's scores improved (ACT score went up 5 points) and there was a definite positive change in his self-confidence and attitude. Erin was dependable and went out of her way to be thorough in keeping my husband and I informed during the process. We've had quite a few tutors over the years, and sometimes it's hard to find a good one, so we were really glad we found Erin!"
