Always on time. He gets very invested in his students so always do your assignments on time. Other than that he explains step by step in a very easy way.

Rod was extremely professional and put my son at ease while practicing/studying for G&T test. My son never complained, and actually looked forward to sessions, as Rod always tried his best to make them fun and age appropriate. Rod was very good at identifying his strengths and areas for improvement and came with strategies to improve the score. Not only did my son pass the test, but he scored 98 percentile, which means that we are eligible to apply to citywide programs.I would recommend Rod to anyone. Needless to say, this was a very positive experience.

Rod was very helpful when it came to helping me prepare for my GRE. After Rod's help, my overall scored increased by 8 points. I was very happy with his tutoring and would highly recommend him. He makes the information easy to understand as well as fun to learn.

French
I am currently taking french lessons with Juliette. I studied the language throughout high school and college, but haven't revisited my studies in about 4-5 years. Juliette made me feel comfortable with my french level and helped me review all that I have forgotten. I am more than happy with Juliette's approach to my unique situation. She first assessed my skill level and then created a teaching program that works for me. I have been studying with her for a few months now and feel like I am really seeing a lot of progress. She has a creative way of teaching that makes learning more enjoyable and easier to retain information. We do not just use textbooks exercises, but learn through art forms such as literature. We have done a lot of review so far, but are now getting into new material. I am excited to continue working with Juliette and would recommend her to anyone who is interested in moving forward with the languages she offers!

Julian is very knowledgeable in pretty much all things programming. If he can't explain it, he can show it to you in a simple example that makes sense. In learning JavaScript for the first time he helped me understand classes, arrays, and anything else I got stuck on. He also helped me transition to C# and taught me how Unity's specific functions tie in.
