I am a Civil Engineer with a graduate degree in Earthquake Engineering, as well as certifications on Vertical Construction.

Pedro is a very good tutor. He is patient and explains the subject matter well. The student was comfortable with him and therefore was able to ask questions whenever it was needed. I appreciated Predro's schedule flexibility as well.

I had no idea how lucky I would be to find Pedro. I am an interior designer learning Autocad and having no prior experience with the program, Pedro made it totally accessible. He is a phenomenal teacher and is so kind and patient. He provides foundational rules at the beginning of each session and has clear goals mapped out for every step of the way. We have done a number of exercises that I did not think would be possible for me to accomplish at this point. I am so grateful to have found him and highly recommend him!!!!!

I stress understanding (geometrically/analytically) rather than memorizing formulas. This ensures my students can derive formulas/solutions even without memorization.

I know firsthand how difficult it is to learn test taking skills whether you are a total newbie, or a budding intermediate, but I have overcame these challenges myself and will guide you to overcome them too. I also have close to 8 years of tutoring experience, which will surely come in handy!

About Bill

I have always been a self-studier in my entire life. Being able to learn with just books and your brain is a crucial skill to have! However, I know not everyone (and sometimes even myself) have the discipline and motivation to keep going during hard times. This is where a tutor would come in handy.

My first lesson was great. Mr. Paul was very patient and judged my skill level before making a lesson plan. Initially I was nervous, because I have never taken lessons before, but that quickly went away. I can definitely tell that he knows his stuff when it comes to teaching. He a great teacher and conversationalist.

Paul was very pleasant. He thoroughly explained things to my daughter in a manner that she could understand. He listened to her play and they also played together.

This was her first flute lesson with Paul, but she's already looking forward to the next lesson.

"My son really enjoyed meeting and working with Gerardo. He liked his approach. Gerardo explained the concepts where my son needed assistance, showed an example, and then observed Matt as he tried to work the problem on his own, adding assistance as needed. It was the right balance of support. Gerardo knew the concepts thoroughly even though it was the first meeting."

"I'm happy to say I found Colin for help with my calculus 1 class. I was doing okay from the beginning, but I felt like I was lacking the depth of understanding of some core algebra concepts and wanted to get solid on them before the class got more challenging (integration), as I was striving for an A in the class. Colin was a wizard at honing in on my weak points and he did an excellent job of really breaking things down and honestly, presenting concepts in more tangible ways than did any of my algebra teachers. I used the principles I learned from my sessions with Colin to get me through some challenging exam problems, and I'm proud to say that I ended up with a 97% in the class overall!"

"I had Jonathan for two years in high school; he taught both my Latin IV and AP Latin classes. I feel obliged to credit Jonathan for bringing my interest and abilities in the Classics to levels that I could never have reached without his guidance. When I first took his class, I had some interest in Roman history and mythology as well as knowledge of basic conjugations and tenses, but I was by no means an exceptional or particularly motivated Latin student. Magister Hills changed that. His dynamic and engaging lectures, carefully prepared exercises, and thorough feedback on papers and projects changed Latin as well as Roman history from mild interests of mine to real passions. Magister Hills was always available and more than willing to help students before and after school, as well. With his help, I was able to earn a 5 on the AP Latin exam as well as an 800 on the SAT Subject Test as a junior. Prior to having Jonathan, I probably would have laughed if you told me I was capable of achieving those scores...his teaching really did transform me as a Latin student. Tomorrow I leave for college as an intended Classics major in one of the most rigorous programs in the United States. I'm confident that Jonathan's instruction has more than prepared me for the Latin course that I will take this fall semester. I wholeheartedly recommend Jonathan as an instructor to anyone interested in learning Latin or Greek."
