With his firm, quiet way and sense of humor, Jim guided our shy, ADD son to pass his Calculus final with flying colors. Jim really understands Calculus and how to get the material across. He immediately responded to phone, text, or emails. My only regret is that we did not seek Jim's help sooner, as this would have increased our son's year-long comprehension and grades.

â€¢ Students should understand the meaning of the derivative in terms of a rate of change and local linear approximation, and should be able to use derivatives to solve a variety of problems.
â€¢ Students should understand the meaning of the definite integral both as a limit of Riemann sums and as the net accumulation of ... More

Rita is an excellent teacher.
She started us off with all the basics, proceeding patiently with letters and pronunciation, working with me on the basics while also making me listen to her speak and try to formulate answers.
She is prepared for each lesson with materials and an idea or goal of what she wants to teach and what I need to learn. I like that her approach is geared to speaking, reading, writing and grammar - they are all essential - while she, at the same time, puts an emphasis on listening and speaking.
Rita is so well prepared and knows what she wants me to study and learn each time. She is making every effort to have me listen to her and understand her when she speaks and to answer her in Russian. It is a fun challenge and she is keeping my feet to the fire. Best of all, I believe I am learning a great deal from class to class and during our classes.
I can best summarize it by stating that Rita is an excellent teacher and fun to work with!
Rita is adding a lot of material, which requires self study and I am enjoying that a great deal. Every class she has not only new lessons prepared but also varied homework materials to read and, now, also to write. She is certainly "pushing me" (nicely) to learn at great speed. I enjoy that thoroughly.
Great class. I feel I have learned a good deal in a short period of time. I credit Rita with a great deal of that progress.
Such an excellent teacher! Demanding, conscientious, knows how to bring learning forwards. I never thought it would be so much fun to go "back to school".

What luck I had finding Mary. She is a wonderful person who I enjoy working with very much. She is very patient, and so natural to get along with I feel like I've known her for a long time. She does her job in an excellent and detailed fashion and I believe is providing what I need to accomplish my goals.
Mary continues to fulfill my needs in a timely fashion. She is reviewing and editing material I hope to have published. Mary has uncovered numerous errors in the construction of my material that had unfortunately been overlooked by a previous reviewer. Also, Mary has provided good feedback on story content and character development. Good progress is being made.
