Jo feels that his lessons with James have helped him understand his school work more. He has told me that he looks forward to seeing James on the scheduled days and he was watching for James to arrive today so he could share his math test results from school. I feel from talking to Jo that he is finding math more enjoyable and James does a good job keeping Jo engaged and interested. We are happy with how things are going so far.

My special needs daughter has taught me a great deal about teaching someone with developmental delays.

Through intensive work (mostly provided by therapists), she has m ... More
"Personal, knowledgeable, experienced and fun! I'm here to help you!"
I am a native English Speaker but have studied Spanish for more than 8 years.

Ajit is making math fun for me at the age of 41; well not really fun, but attainable. Ajit is helping me fire-up my brain as I prepare to start an MBA program in a couple of weeks. He has been able to convince me that I can do Algebra again and has a way of explaining things plain English. He is very patient and practical and doesn't seem to get too frustrated with me.
