"Tom is a very good English teacher. I have problems understanding English literature very often because I am not a native speaker and Tom helped me with patience understanding English literature from context, background of the author and writing habits. Through his instructions I can finally appreciate the beauty of English literature like I appreciate the literature works in my mother tongue. From Shakespeare to Mark Twain I travelled through ages and time when I read, think about and ponder upon their masterpieces. Most importantly I am able to understand them, and it feels amazing. Thank you, Tom!"

"In our limited time together, Colin effectively helped me to prepare and be ready for the AP Calculus exam. He was able to cover any topic that I had questions on, and in great detail; he always explained each step of every problem thoroughly, not leaving anything out of the picture.

Another thing worth mentioning is Colin's passionate approach to teaching. He would always go about each lesson with unmistakable enthusiasm, showing that even calculus could be fun, if you were willing to see it as so. He was also always willing to go all the way with any problem, even if it went over the time limit; he wanted to make sure that I had no questions or concerns about any topic, no matter how complex it might have been. So, all in all, if you are looking for a suitable calculus tutor, Colin is certainly a very worthy option!"

"I am a sixth grade student, and Julia has been a very good math tutor to me for about 3 years already, and I plan to keep going to her for a while. I am seeing lots of improvement at school, and my MAP and other test scores have increased greatly since the start of Julia helping me out this year. Two things that are great about Julia as a tutor, are that she never, ever yells or gets frustrated when I don’t understand how to do something. Also, she takes as much time as needed to explain a hard problem to me, and she does that very clearly, until I fully understand how to do that problem. My overall opinion of Julia is that she is one of the best math tutors out there, because I had to go through many other tutors to find a good one, and Julia is the best."

He goes through the lessons to prep my son for the school work and also get him to do the SAT prep. He has a lot of knowledge and tricks on the SAT that are very helpful. We do a weekly class with Mena is the past 6 months and will continue through high school."
