My daughter has been working with Howard for several weeks now for a HS physics class with which she was really struggling. Howard was quick to respond to my request for information, and my daughter started working with him right away. He has been professional, patient, caring and very easy to work with. He's an excellent tutor. My daughter enjoys the sessions and has gotten a tremendous amount of help in a short time. His work with her has made a huge help in her confidence level! We plan to keep working with Howard so my daughter can stay on top of the class and get the grade she so deserves. Update: my daughter worked with Howard the entire school year as he helped her prepare for tests and eventually her final exam. Within the first month of their working together she went from struggling to understanding the concepts and doing well on homework and tests. She ended up with an A each semester and an A on the final exam! Howard was THE KEY to my daughter’s success. He was the best tutor we’ve ever worked with hands down. He was patient, insightful, encouraging and so accommodating. He truly cared about how my daughter was doing in the class. I would not only recommend Howard to anyone, I plan on using him again next school year for a math class my daughter is taking. Best. Tutor. Ever!!Jun 19, 2019Verified
I would like to highly recommend Dr. Howard Siegerman as a tutor of both math and chemistry. He tutored by son Tom when he was taking a difficult series of math courses in middle school and high school. With his encouragement and patience he was able to rebuild Tom's confidence. With this renewed confidence and additional practice, Tom's grades improved dramatically. Dr. Siegerman also mentored Tom in chemistry, providing real life experience to theoretical questions. Tom in now at New York University pursuing a degree in biochemistry.Sep 16, 2015
Howard Siegerman recently tutored my daughter in Pre Calc. He was very thorough and patient. She is now confident about returning to class and being prepared for upcoming lessons. I highly recommend his tutoring.Dec 31, 2019VerifiedHoward Siegerman's reply

Liana Thanks for the kind words. I have some good lessons planned for Margo and Gabby for Monday and Tuesday. See you then.
Howard tutored my daughter in calculus and she said that Dr. Seigerman helped her a lot. The whiteboard he uses makes it feel like you are having an in-person tutoring session. He also has a very warm and engaging approach. I will be using Howard for both my daughters in AP Physics, Honors Chemistry and Calc. Extremely knowledgeable and clear that he has a lot of experience teaching.Sep 20, 2018VerifiedHoward Siegerman's reply
