Shirin M. has far surpassed our expectations in a tutor. She is working with our 17-year old daughter in the very challenging subject of Calculus. Shirin had a tough assignment as a tutor because our daughter, who was taking an self-taught, online Calculus course through her high school, found out right before winter break that she had fallen close to two months behind in her class. This put her in the difficult position of catching up on more than what could be called a considerable amount of work before she would be allowed to re-enroll for the second semester. How fortunate we were that Shirin was available this very busy week of the year to offer our daughter 20 hours of individual tutoring (not to mention emotional support) for this daunting challenge! Shirin even took on this assignment while on her vacation week from her own full-time day job...wow! Shirin has been prompt to our sessions, professional, encouraging, patient, flexible with scheduling, and thorough in her tutoring. She knows not just how to do the problems herself, but how to teach our daughter to understand and solve the work on her own - this is a skill that not every tutor/teacher has. We are confident that between our daughter's determination to succeed and Shirin's tutoring, our daughter will achieve the goal of re-enrollment for her second semester.

I have had a very positive tutoring experience with Odile. She is organized, attentive and thorough, and she gets great results! She is a native French speaker, so she's tremendous help with developing an authentic French accent. She also develops personalized lesson plans catered to your abilities and interests, and always makes sure to work on conversational skills. Very easy to reach by phone or email. Highly Recommended!

Jeff has been very good for my son. He is very "kid-friendly" and it has been a pleasure welcoming him into our home these past 6 months or so. My son had been struggling in class and Jeff's help brought his grade in that class up from a D to a B. We will likely bring Jeff back when it's time for our son to study for the SAT, as this is a specialty of Jeff's and I know our son will love working with him again.

"Grace - An Interactive and Interesting Tutor"
Tutoring runs in the family. My father was a teacher almost all his life, and my senior sister was also a teacher for many years until she got a promotion. As for me, tutoring comes really easy especially when it has to do with one on one classes since that gives me the opportunity to interact better with my student.
I have a certificate for the Teaching of English As A Foreign Language to Adults, and during my course, we were equally had courses on teaching children.
