I have had the priviledge of having several tutoring sessions from MATHMAN and what a great experience it's been. I can't tell you how much I've learned from him and the amount of understanding I've gained from our sessions! I HIGHLY RECOMMEND him as a tutor and teacher!

Sylvia spends 1.5 hours once a week teaching my three kids Spanish. The kids are 6, 8, and 8. They're learning well and having fun. We are planning to spend a month in Costa Rica and I wanted them to have some language skills when we arrive. So far it's working great.

Out of the many tutors we work with at our school, Rio is one of the best. He works beautifully with the students and their teachers as a partner and collaborator. The best part is how much the kids love him. He is an outstanding tutor.

After the first tutoring session with Gabriel, I began to have a whole new appreciation for Physics. My curiosity grew as I started seeing the simple phenomenon of physics in every day life. The class started to gel for me, my grades soared, and without a doubt, this was some of the best material I ever ended up studying. Gabriel helped me get to this place. He patiently helped me flip on the switch of understanding, stop berating myself when I was stuck, and reminded me that even some of the best physics minds out there struggled with this stuff. I can now say that I really love Physics and have the confidence to keep learning more!

Darya tutored and advised me throughout my senior year of high school and my first year at college. Having Darya by my side throughout the stress of a year and a half journey has had a significant impact in my life. Although Darya's main responsibility was to tutor me for my Advanced Placement (AP) Literature class, she went above and beyond to what I expected of an English tutor. She helped me find my inner voice as a writer through tutoring me about grammar, organization, and vocabulary. She also helped boost my confidence as an underprivileged Latina studying in the STEM field as a computer science major at the University of California: Santa Cruz. I passed both my AP Government and AP Literature classes and tests which is significant because both required a heavy amount of analytical writing; I graduated high school with honors and with the highest cumulative grade point average (GPA), 3.7, at any time of my academic career. One week before I was going to take my SAT for the third time, I mentioned to Darya that I was struggling understanding a large portion of the Math section of the test. To my surprise, she was thoroughly capable skilled in tutoring me in math, along with English. In less than seven days, Darya was able to successfully prepare me for my last SAT test; subsequently, my SAT score improved by more than 100 points. If we had more time to go through the preparation book, I could have further surpassed this amazing progress. Another aspect in which Darya supported me in my college application and preparation process was in guiding me to refine my college essays for both private and public universities: as a result, I was accepted to more than half of the colleges that I applied to. Finally, I am most grateful for Darya and her efforts towards my success because of the high number of scholarships that I received in the second semester of my senior year in high school. Through Darya’s excellent editing and writing abilities, I was able to accumulate more than $200,000 in scholarship rewards from four different organizations. I could never have imagined this much triumph before meeting Darya; without these scholarship awards, I would have been forced to work during my breaks and during school to afford a college education. Now, all that I have to worry about is learning as much as I can while I am at UCSC. On account of my strong achievements in less than a year with Darya, I still utilize the many tips and lessons that she has instilled in me. As a result of this, I excelled in my classes at UCSC with a cumulative GPA of 3.6. Because of my outstanding academic success in the first quarter of college, I was exclusively invited by the university to apply to the College Scholars Program; this two-year program selects 20 students out of about 200 students applying from each college at UCSC to help give them meaningful academic challenges. Not only do I recognize Darya as one of the most significant people in my life because of my solid academic accomplishments, but also due to the genuine passion she holds to be sure that her tutees succeed. As her tutee, she constantly reminded me of my own abilities to encourage my confidence. We are still in contact today which further demonstrates her enthusiasm for her tutees. She is evidently benevolent, motivated, and intelligent, and I highly recommend her tutoring and guidance talents to any student who is fortunate enough to be her tutee.

Alex tutored me in Calculus AB, Calculus BC, and AP Physics C. She explained difficult subjects clearly, and even made a note sheet at the end of each lesson which was immensely helpful. I succeeded in all of these classes thanks to Alex. She was always available for long video conferences and tutoring sessions when I needed it, and helped me work efficiently and throughly. Alex has advised me in both my academic and personal life, and helped me immensely. I would recommend Alex to any student who wants to succeed in these challenging classes.

Oscar is one of the nicest people I've ever met. My mother and I were looking for a last minute low budget tutor before my ACT and were lucky to find Oscar. Oscar was well-versed in all the subjects and definitely brought me up a lot of points for both my first and second ACT. However, one of my favorite things to do with Oscar was to talk about what was going on in my life and getting advice on all things athletics, academics, and applying to colleges. All in all I'm sure Oscar has something to bring to the table for every student who needs tutoring.

Leo tutored me for PDE and Actuarial Science courses. Not only he helped me getting good marks (+30%), he also turned study materials very interesting. After spending time with him, you feel like you can be A+ student like him! If you do tutoring session with him, ask him to make study timeline with you. He is really good at getting you organized.

Katrina worked with my middle schooler for over a year. She tutored her in language arts and the skills necessary to write a good essay. She also tutored her in math often expanding on the ways to approach a problem. My daughter is anxious and Katrina was amazing at helping her learn to manage her academic anxiety, organize her work and thoughts and approach schoolwork calmly.

Alyssia is definitely one of the smartest (and hardest-working) people I've ever met; graduating from UC Berkeley and continuing on with her studies. Not only has she inspired me to be a better learner, but I've also learned to re-love the subjects at school. Alyssia is well-traveled, interesting and very funny. I've loved working with her and I really hope we don't lose touch!!

I, highly, recommend her for all of your math tutoring needs, but especially for statistics. In my case, I needed to complete a graduate level statistics class, and I hadn't attended a math class in over twenty years, much less a statistics course. Julia was very patient and supportive in assisting me to understand probabilities, hypothesis testing, linear and multiple regressions, and time series forecasting. The outcome of our tutoring sessions together resulted in me achieving an A in the class.
