Best math and English tutors we've ever come across. We first tried in person tutoring and then tried online tutoring. We were very happy with both.
I hired Daniel for SAT tutoring about a month before the test. In such a short time frame, he not only prepared me for the strategies and problems on the exam, but helped me overcome my long time fear of math. He was extremely patient and understanding, always offering encouragement and little tricks to guide me to the answer quicker. After every session, he gave me notes to take home and always followed up with an email of practice problems and study guides. I took the test recently and have never felt more calm or prepared. I feel it went really well and look forward to spreading his name in the community so others can benefit as well! I would highly recommend Daniel! (coming from the stubborn teenager who did not want any sort of help/tutoring!) :)
I am a returning adult student, who has forgotten almost all the Math I learned years back. Jon was so patient with me and started with the basics. He never made me feel embarrassed for having to go back to the beginning with Algebra. Jon showed me techniques of how to learn and solve Math problems in a much better way than the text I was given. He also had helpful tips on how to study and reinforce the information. I was pleased with how quick he always was to respond to e-mails or texts, and was impressed that he offered many times to answer anything I was stuck on between tutoring sessions. Jon was always on time for our weekly appointment. I will highly recommend him to anyone I know and anyone reading this that needs some Math help. As soon as I am enrolled in more Math classes, I will not hesitate to contact Jon again.
