Roxanne M. is very patient, and very engaging, she makes it fun for my son. She obviously spend a lot of time preparing for my sonâ€™s tutoring session, by finding book on topics he likes and looking up examples which might benefit him on state testing. I was sure my son was going to be resistant to tutoring but he is not. So far he looks forward to meeting with Roxanne weekly. As a parent I could not ask for a better tutoring experience.

I was looking for a math tutor for my daughter who had just finished 8th grade. I found Cassandra on Wyzant. I wanted a younger female, someone my daughter could relate to and feel comfortable with. Cassandra was a great choice! My daughter says Cassandra was very patient, and explained the material in ways my daughter could understand. My daughter and I are BOTH looking forward to a better school year with math! Cassandra made her realize it's not impossible, and she CAN do it. I will also say Cassandra was flexible to work with, and very professional. I would definitely recommend her to anyone looking for a tutor.
