Dr. Pande changed my perspective on Biochemistry. I will be taking my MCATs with a sense of confidence I did not have. She is simply awesome!!!! Her concepts are very clear, she works with me to solve problems and challenges me to learn. I will highly recommend her.

Ben was patient, kind and full of knowledge. He was great at noticing her hand placement and would make visual corrections as well as show her examples of where she should be. For our first online lesson, I was very impressed. We still need to learn more about the technical aspects of being online (example: where to move the output video placement) but I think that just adds to the fun and experience of the whole process.

My son started taking classes in this summer. So far, it is a very helpful and pleasant learning experience for him. Garrett knows how to work with young elementary age kids. He is always on time and very focused on his tutoring. We are happy to find him through take lessons.com and will recommend him highly.
