My son walked away with a much deeper understanding the play. He described William as "chill", which is teenager parlance for William is an excellent tutor who connected with my son.

Mariana was very concerned about meeting my daughter's needs at the tutoring session. My daughter had never been tutored in Chemistry, but had many questions when reviewing for an exam and requested a tutor.
