Rich had a way with connecting with my kids. My youngest always struggled trying to get his grades up with the help from other tutors and teachers but could not grasp the concepts with the way they taught. When Rich came into the picture his grades shot up to A's! He was able to get my sons to connect the concepts and my son stated that he did not want any other tutor and wished he had met him a long time ago.
The most amazing story was when my son came home and informed me that his math teacher at school had asked him to explain a math problem to the class that others were struggling to understand. My son, without hesitation, did what was asked and was commended on the outstanding and clear instruction he had given to the class and told him it was the best explanation given by any student he has ever had. Kids in the class started coming to him for help! Amazing! I am unbelievably happy with Rich and highly recommend him to other struggling students.
Thanks Rich! Greatly appreciated.

Kerrick was a great tutor. He worked with me and showed me some basic techniques on my camera because I am a beginner. He also made sure I got some cool shots from the day- of cactus. He is very knowledgeable about photography and I am confident he would be able to train anyone at whatever level they are at. He is also very knowledgeable with Photoshop so he'll be able to train on that as well. He was patient and nice. You can't go wrong with Kerrick as a tutor.

"Higher Grades. Lower Stress."
My name is Dan and I love helping people improve their understanding of math. My job is to provide motivation, encouragement, and reassurance to my clients. I firmly believe that people can and will become better at anything with the right combination of guidance, patience, and practice. It's not that some people are good at math and others aren't; its that some people simply haven't found the right strategies yet. While Learning a new skill always takes you outside of your comfort zone, I be... ... More
