My son is really inspired by Andrew. He makes it so much fun, and DJ is progressing well under his guidance and encouragement. Andrew has been very good about making sure that DJ is learning the stuff he wants to focus on, not just being a slave to an instruction book. We highly recommend him.

Terrence is very patient and encouraging. He makes a point of having my daughter explain the methods she used when working problems so that he knows she understands the process. She "hates" math but never complains about it when Terrence is there to help her.
