My 13 year old son (8th grade) started working with Mr. Pow in February 2015. He's in Pre-Algebra and was really struggling with the concepts. The decision to have him work with Mr. Pow was one of the best decisions I've ever made! My son now has a very strong understanding of Algebra, and its complex processes, and went from struggling and earning low test grades to currently having a B+ in his class! He met with Mr. Pow once a week for 60 - 90 minutes and on occasion we'd do two sessions a week. Mr. Pow took the time to explain the problems in a way that really clicked with my son. He's courteous, patient and really loves Math and that shines through in his work with his students. If you're looking for someone to help your child with Math, then I highly recommend Bill Pow. We'll definitely be working with him again once my son starts High School in the fall.
Mr. Mougy Ahmed has done wonders as a math tutor for our sophomore son! He has a very agreeable, non-threatening tutoring style, and our son enjoyed working with him right away. Our son was getting D's and C's in Algebra II , even with the assistance of a previous math tutor. Mougy came to our house and immediately recognized where our son was misunderstanding foundational concepts in Algebra II, and worked with him to build up that knowledge base and apply those skills correctly. He has been highly responsive in setting up tutoring sessions, sending additional lessons/exercises via email, and even holding extra sessions in advance of math tests/quizzes. As a direct result of Mougy's tutoring, our son earned a B+ and an A on his last two math tests. We highly recommend him to any student or parent who is searching for tutoring assistance.
Prior to tutoring, two things were holding my daughter back on the SAT- the math section and her confidence. Alex was the perfect tutor to improve both of those areas. He provided clear teaching in math that honed in on the areas where she needed the most help. He was consistently positive and encouraging, helping her believe in herself. This led to her math score jumping 180 points.
Edward is currently tutoring my 7th grader in Algebra 1. My son told me that Edward not only teaches the mechanics but also gives him the explanation as to why. Edward uses an iPad during sessions and emails the notes after each session. Edward is also very nice and personable!
"Barbara is an extremely effective math tutor. She relates very well to students and she knows the Algebra material inside and out. Her explanations are very clear and helpful. Besides being 100% reliable, she is also a very nice person. "
Ms. Erin is a great Reading and Math Tutor!
It was nice meeting Mrs. Wendy. She arrived on time and was very friendly. My son enjoyed the class and we plan to continue several lessons more until my son can be at the level he needs to be in.
Mrs.Fitts taught me more in a short 7 week period than my own algebra teacher taught me in an entire year. Not only was she an amazing instructor, she was genuinely invested in my learning and growth as a student. In school, there is always a fear of getting an answer wrong or raising your hand to ask a question, because you are afraid your teacher will ridicule you for not knowing or accuse you of not paying attention. Mrs. Fitts always encouraged asking questions, no matter how small and was never once bothered in answering them. In fact, she was more than happy to answer as many questions as possible so I never experienced any self doubt or held back anything, which was a first for me. Her way of instructing is not robotic, it is catered differently for every student, and if one does not like the way things are going, Mrs. Fitts encourages you to speak up and tell her what needs to change in order to make you feel most comfortable. Learning with her was never a drag, I sincerely enjoyed doing work with her and can say with full confidence that she is an incredible instructor!
I strongly recommend Theo if someone is looking for a math tutor. Theo tutored my daughter during the summer. She failed Algebra and had to take the class in the summer. Theo was able to explain the concepts and teach my daughter how to solve the Algebra problems. After just 2 tutoring sessions my daughter had a better understanding of the Algebra concepts. My daughter received an 87 as her grade for Algebra 1. I strongly recommend Theo without any reservations. Theo is patient and it's a bittersweet departure hoping Theo returns back to DC.
Since March 2018 I have been taking one-on-one weekly lessons with Shaoling Liu. During that time, I have gained much more confidence in my ability to pronounce tones, which is critical to being understood. She also places a premium on listening to conversations at the speed of “regular Chinese-language speakers” speaking. She is very enthusiastic about teaching Chinese, and is always willing to do more for the students who take the initiative. For example, if you want to write materials, she will correct them; if you record your own speaking she will listen to it; and in these cases she will give you feedback between classes. She has grown up using simplified Chinese, but she knows the traditional characters, which is essential for what I want to learn. One of her previous students is now working in Taiwan. I recommend her to individuals interested in learning to speak and understand Chinese.
