As your tutor, I would seek to help you accomplish not only the goals you set for yourself, but to help you accomplish goals that you might not have realized.

"From differential calculus to music: hey, it's all math!"
A desire to play music on the radio and in my record collection culminated in an interest in the BASS guitar (that's the 4-string version, not the 6-string).

I needed a 26 in the speaking part of Toefl. Those who have taken Toefl know how hard it is to get a 26. Janet was very helpful. She is a very experienced person. She always answered my e-mails and questions immediately. She provided me lots of practice material and would go through my answers before the day of class. She is one of the most responsible and dedicated teachers I have ever had. I always felt that she was trying her best to help me. She is very knowledgeable in her field. As a result of her hard work, I got 27 in the speaking and 27 in the writing part of Toefl. I strongly recommend her as your tutor if you want to pass your tests with a wonderful grade.
