I had Haroldo S. as a tutor for Organic Chem, and my sessions with Haroldo were not only extremely informative and helpful but also enjoyable. I especially liked having Haroldo as a tutor because he wasn't just about teaching the subject at hand; he was concerned with my overall performance as a student in general. Though Haroldo only tutored me in one subject, he was able to provide me with time management, test-taking, and study tips. He wants me to succeed as a student, and it really gave me confidence to know that he was genuinely interested in my academic well-being. I learned more during my time with Haroldo than I had the previous few weeks of the semester, and in addition, he gave me tips and skills I will be able to use for the rest of my life and academic career. Haroldo is an excellent tutor, and both helps me and wants me to succeed.
