I want to take the time to recognize the truly dedicated and skilled professional that Leita is. Our son, though skeptical of the whole idea at first, through Lieta's enthusiasm and great "kid know how" to get young learners interested, has won over both his heart and mind. No easy task with a 13 year old boy indeed! We're seeing him be both excited to learn and showing great progress across a range of academic topics they have worked on already (Math, penmanship, writing skills, study skills, etc...)

I am a recent return student and have never hired a professional tutor before. When I started a EE class it had been over 20 years since I had taken differential equations. Half way through the class I realized that I didn't realistically have a chance of passing. Although by intense studying and with Glenn's help I was able to pass the class.
Glenn is a highly accomplished engineer in many fields. Also his many years of practical application in industry is a big plus. I was lucky to find him for help with this EE class. Highly recommend him especially for advanced subjects.

"Experienced Math Tutor"
Math is my first love. I want students to be successful and enjoy math. That begins in elementary school. I believe that a strong understanding of multiplication facts, division, and fractions sets children in the right direction and guards against any child having a "math block." Success in elementary math gives students the skills they need to tackle higher math such as algebra.
Algebra is my specialty, but I enjoy all disciplines.
Over the years I have often tutored students in... ... More
