Mr. B is very passionate about what he does. His methods help my son's score go up. He was very prepared and punctual.Dec 3, 2018Verified
Mr. B and Costan are extremely remarkable. One on one tutoring is best for my son, who needed help with reading and math. Both Mr. B and Costan were very kind and patient with my son. I really appreciate how well they worked with him. Everything was well organized. My son has a couple more years to go before he graduates. He requested to go back to Mr B. and Costan next year for any additional tutoring he may need. When your child/ teen tells you he doesn't mind going back, that means they were very comfortable with the tutoring. I highly recommend Mr. B and Costan, they are truly great people. I'm glad I found them.May 6, 2018VerifiedMustard Seed Enterprises, Inc.'s reply

The client agrees on hiring to release, indemnify, and hold harmless the tutor and his associates from and against any claims, liabilities, damages, losses, and expenses, without limitation and has been advised to review this bio/profile and Q/A information.
- What is your typical process for working with a new customer?New customers always receive an evaluation estimate quote. The ACT/SAT math is conducted by my Bright Futures scholarship AP scholar FAU son Costan. So the client gets "two for the price of one" as I am always present to organize, direct, monitor, supervise and coordinate the complete math instruction session. All potential clients are invited to review my bio/profile, read my Q/A responses (hit the read more link) and scroll down to check our professional testimonials, parent references, students star ratings and reviews, in order to make an informed decision to hire the very best tutor. I always recommend the customer read the references and reviews to hire and retain any professional. The process to start provides my academic credentials, my business card and make an initial appraisal of the student. This involves an observation of their attitude to learning, their commitment and their behavior, as student conduct is important in creating the right test prep or study environment. Once the diagnostic test practice scores are obtained, I make a decision whether to accept the student. I advise the parent/guardian my honest evaluation and suggest options available in best interests of their student. I always ask if the student is satisfied and I always encourage the client to ask questions.
- What education and/or training do you have that relates to your work?I participate in "Teachers of the World" video classes on line and an active blogger on "Experiential Learning", website. I am involved in the Cambridge University Alumni updates on advances in global education. My Linked In developing nations education connection blogs always make for great networking with other educators worldwide. Care 2 provides an overview of the concerns of parents and challenges of students to achieve their education goals. The post-modern researched "time to teach" Center for teacher effectiveness Program and conferences have equipped me with powerful lessons that empower, enrich and enlighten my learners. I incorporate implement and deliver proven training methods such as 'unconditional positive regard' systems. I understand education be approached not as a sprint but rather as a marathon.
