Knowledgeable, warm, patient, methodical, pleasant, prompt, accommodating, flexible, awesome, down to earth, organized, comforting, confident,funny and determined. Ben is an amazing tutor! I initially contacted WyzAnt for a tutor who had experience with APA and Word. Several tutors answered the request,and were very nice. I decided to go with Ben because he lived close by. Well, I couldn't have been luckier. I was extremely anxious because I had to submit a 100 page project on line, and my formatting was off. I am pursuing my PhD, and papers that are not formatted correctly are bounced back until correct. Ben was successful in reformatting my computer and my paper. In addition to all of that, he was teaching me how to format step by step. A HUGE undertaking. I cannot thank Ben enough. As a matter of fact, I plan to ask Ben to be my editor for my dissertation!
Thank you Ben!!

If the student doesn't like math and gets an ineffective, uninteresting teacher on top of their other problems, a good student can turn into a failing student.
My approach is to start them early, pro ... More

We were expected to maintain certain grades in all literacy and proficiency courses in order to stay in the m... ... More
Leah is a very intelligent and great tutor. My daughter is 16 and she loved the way Leah teaches and explains every detail and makes sure she understands it before moving forward. Leah has very good knowledge of what she teaches and is able to relate very well. The best part that I liked about her was that she is very professional and does not compromise her teaching quality no matter what the scenario is.
