A breath of fresh air!

Natalie was outstanding in preparing our 12 y.o. for a poetry recitation. She guided him through all elements of the poem from interpretation to his style of delivery and presentation. He did a great job and has Natalie to thank for it. Highly recommended!

Amadou has been a great help for our daughter. She was struggling in her class and wasn't exactly seeing eye-to-eye with the teacher. Amadou was able to identify her strength/weaknesses and encouraged her to not doubt her initial instincts. While it took sometime for her to realize it, he influenced her to change her study habit. He followed up with us by providing addition work/practice problems that strategically enabled her to work in a "harder" problem. I do believe that he is worth every penny.

Amador is a really great tutor! He's a very chill, funny guy that allows students to connect better. Be able to communicate is the most important part between teacher and student. It makes it easier to learn if i am able to share my problems without embarrassment knowing that he will help me in whatever way he can. Thanks Amadou!
