April has been wonderful to work with. At our first meeting she asked me where I wanted her to help and what I needed to learn. She then put together the tutoring tailored to me and my schedule. I have found her to very patient and willing to work with someone that is challenged in learning a new language. With her as my tutor I will be able to speak Spanish within the time frame needed.

"Tutor Available for Math and Sciences"

Success in any mathematics course requires solid problem solving skills whether it's algebra, trigonometry, geometry, calculus. The ability to solve word problems is also essential in order to do well on standardized tests such as the ACT and the SAT. By weaving problem ... More
Maryanne achieved in a mere hour exactly what I was looking to learn. She had presented me a schedule via e-mail ahead of time, broken down into the facets of what she was to present. I found that very helpful- and professional. She was patient with my questions and completely prepared for the tutorial. She was punctual, gracious and very knowledgeable of the material. I would recommend her highly.

"Roni, Experienced General Tutor"
During my undergrad studies at SUNY Albany I was asked to tutor based on my academic success in the general chemistry course. The programs I worked for (CSTEP/EOP) provided free services and assistance to under-represented and underprivileged students.
