Prior to meeting Eleanor, my 9 year old son had been working with a very expensive tutor for the past two years. He has achieved more in the past couple months, with Eleanor, than he ever did in the 2 years with the Phd. My son's grades, confidence and focus have all sky rocketed. Eleanor is wonderful, she's on time and my son loves her. I would highly recommend Eleanor.

Mr A is a very diligent and punctual teacher. He goes out of his way to schedule time for me within a very short period of time.
He is extremely knowledgeable in math and algebra 1and 2. His teaching style is very unique and he makes difficult concepts very easy for me to understand. I was very confused on one topic and called him a day before the exam. He was not only able to get my concepts clear but also helped me to build such confidence that I scored 120% (which includes 20% for extra credit) in the test the next day. That was an amazing achievement for me.
I highly recommend Mr A. to all those who would like to build a passion for learning math.

Elena makes it very easy to understand any subject. The way she goes about teaching and explaining topics is very methodical. She explains things in a way that makes it very easy to comprehend.
For example, in my Spanish class, I was having trouble remembering how to conjugate verb tenses. Elena came up with a step by step process that I can easily remember which made it extremely simple for me to conjugate any verb.

"Mr. Mike, The Math Teacher"
While Algebra was formally established as a branch of mathematics over 1,000 years ago, students still find it challenging. What I learned in my early days, was that students needed to adjust their thinking as they approached understanding concepts that used "variables" (the dreaded "x") and not just numbers. Once I helped students make that shift, learning Algebra became more natural and satisfying. With my professional background in engineering, I lived and breathed Algebra as a way to solve real-world problems, and now enjoy developing these skills in others. ... More
