Stephan routinely goes the extra mile in helping our son with his work in Chemistry. He checks work and he identifies problems and weaknesses in advance and helps to address them. He is clearly invested in our son's success. We feel like he is a gift from above. I can't even believe we were lucky enough to find him. When he began tutoring my son who was really struggling, we saw IMMEDIATE improvement in my son's attitude toward school work and also in his confidence. We have also seen a dramatic improvement in his grades. My son looks forward to Stephan's sessions, and we just increased his visits from once a week to twice a week. Besides all of these amazing results, Stephan is just a great guy who everyone enjoys having around!

After graduating from college, I tried to use this technique to help students prepare for the ACT. I noticed that students tended to understand concepts better after it was reinforced with a few examples and practice problems.
