In my time of need (I had a B- average), I was fortunate enough to receive Varna's tutoring support. Varna is clear ("Do this"), firm ("Don't do that") , AND exceptionally kind ("You can do this!") in her approach. Thanks to Varna, I was able to get an A+ in both Calculus 1 and Calculus 2. You are the best Varna, thank you!!!

Daniel helped me with GRE math. We worked on problem solving, numeric entry and quantitative comparisons, all areas I really struggled with. I needed to raise my score by a few points, and I'm confident that Daniel's sessions will allow me to achieve that when I take my test next. Sessions were extremely useful and efficient. He used an online whiteboard, along with Skype, so that I had an easy to see breakdown of all of the problems. Not only did he help with problems, but he also gave me multiple resources to use in the future when studying for the GRE (e.g. great websites, formulas, etc.) I recommend him to everyone who needs help in math!

Janis has been working with my daughter on multiple subjects, including Piano, reading, math, science, and ukulele since she was 4 years old. The impact that she has had on my child goes beyond just being a teacher - she has helped shape her personality and has instilled in her a love and enthusiasm for learning that is priceless.

Janis has been an amazing teacher and mentor to my children for the past 15 years. She was the kindest, and the most patient teacher with the greatest teaching method for math and English as a tutor to my son, who is currently studying for his MBA. And she was the most patient and flexible as well as detail oriented piano instructor for my younger daughter. Her unique teaching methods help her students learn and retain information and her kind smile and sense of humor make the kids want to continue their work and practice.

Had our first lesson with Julissa and the experience was painless lol! My daughter was reticent at first but warmed easily. She thought she might not understan Julissa because of her accent but that was not a problem. All in all a great mathematic experience.
