I learned a great deal from working with Julie in a very short amount of time. She's extremely knowledgable and very patient. I look forward to continuing sessions with her in pursuit of achieving my goals.
Maria W.
I was a little sceptical at first how this classroom session was going to go. Julie is exactly what I have hoped for in an instructor, very thorough in teaching in a manner that helps me understand not only about my camera, but, what is expected. I believe that Julie is a good fit for me.
Aurora Hogden
I very much enjoy my lessons with Julie. She listens to what i'm interested in pursuing and guides me accordingly. She shares ideas and advice and most of all is supportive and encouraging.

Donna3 minutes agoThank you Marwa for all you help in understanding Statistics. This is not an easy course for me as Math is my least favorite subject. It takes patience and no judgement to help others. I appreciate your guidance and encouragement during each lesson!

My grandson was having difficulty with beginning Algebra, until Marwa began
tutoring him. Within 2 weeks, he gained confidence and his grades went from
F to A. Marwa gave him the support and skills he needed to tackle this subject
and move forward. My grandson tells me often how he appreciates Marwa and
the hours she spends with him weekly.She really cares about her students and
wants them to do well. She's very smart, considerate and patient.She
understands teens and their learning styles.

Great!! She does a great job with breaking down information to make it easier to understand and learn the content. She wants you to be successful in learning the material. If there is something you do not understand,she will go over it until you comprehend the information. Janalee is a true teacher because she is very patient and understanding when it comes to your learning style.

I must say Janalee is a phenomenal tutor. Her lesson plans are well structured and well thought out. Before studying under her tutelage , I was extremely nervous about taking my GRE. Not only did I pass my exam, I surpassed my own expectations.

Thank you Janalee, you played a pivotal role of my success !!!!

I really enjoy learning new languages, and I truly believe that having a great teacher is essential to success. Tony is AWESOME. He is so patient and kind. He really helps you understand why the signs are what they are and how the deaf community communicates even beyond signing. I am really enjoying our lessons and the 'homework' he assigns is fun and manageable. I highly recommend him!

With a degree in English Literature, reading comprehension has been the most important aspect of my academic career. I know how to help you confidently navigate and come to a more complete and nuanced understanding of what you are reading, the main morals, motifs, and main purpose of each piece you read.

Our focus will of course be on coming to a complete and correct understanding of exactly what you are reading. Depending on the level you are at, our sessions will eventually inspire you to develop your own bold and unique opinions on everything that you read going forward.

If you ever need a dedicated language arts warrior, he is the one to choose! He works really hard to help you understand each facet of the area you are working on, in order to master the craft. Sometimes even in overtime which was very appreciated.
He really went above and beyond in helping me to pass my essay exam. Out of all the help, I enlisted, he was the only one that was instrumental in improving my writing which resulted in my passing the exam
I AM ETERNALLY GRATEFUL !!!!!!
Omar
When it came time to apply to graduate school, I wanted to express every ounce of appreciation for public health – except I struggled with transferring much of that admiration into writing. I could easily call up experiences and memories during conversation, but to fashion them into a fluid essay remained a tall task. This is where Nick really shined. We spent hours talking through these experiences with a focus on harnessing their emotional footprint. It took some open-mindedness, plus the will to resist the inertial tug of old habits, but with Nick’s help I was able to write from a place of passion for the first time in my life.

Nick helped me plan, outline, and proofread my essay for finals
