She is very patience with my daughter! Great!
Chloe
She said she couldn’t help me unless we were on zoom. No one told me this and I don’t know how to do zoom. So then she told me to connect to her on the computer and not my phone so I tried that. That didn’t work. So she looked at my screen and told me it was blurry. Then after all that we lost connection and she was unwilling to reschedule so I could actually get what I paid for which was help!!! All my other teachers on here have been good, but I can’t recommend jasmine as it was a complete waste of my money.

Helped me a lot with pronunciation. At times he is hard to understand because of his accent, but I'm sure I am hard for him to understand as well. Still, I learned a lot and want to continue.

Daniel was extremely patient and methodical with his teaching and explanations. Not only did I learn a lot during his class, but I felt motivated to continue studying. He definitely went above and beyond to make sure I have the resources and support I need even outside of my sessions. Thanks Daniel!

Eric is a miracle worker. I had a 70 in my 3rd year college Finance class and was on a path to failing it. I worked with Eric a couple of weeks and was able to recover my grade. I now have a B and have a chance to make it an A! He has a deep understanding of finance and is able to quickly solve complex problems. I would recommend him to anyone who is struggling with finance / math concepts.

I have returned to my passion for teaching young people mathematics. I understand how daunting math can be and how easy it is to feel left behind by the classroom teacher. We go at your pace. Math can be abstract. I will help you make the abstract real and relevant. Patience on my part is the most important part of the tutoring process.
