Esther is a fantastic tutor! She is extremely knowledgeable and patient. She used teaching tools tailored to meet my son's weaknesses. Before Esther started working with my son, he had a low D in the first quarter of Spanish I. With Esther's help, he achieved a C by the end of the semester. Esther enabled him to achieve B's through the rest of Spanish I and all through Spanish II. Thank you Esther!

This was my daughter's first session with Nicole. Nicole took the time to review her prior class work (at Nicole's request, we sent it to her ahead of time) and was prepared to help her with specific instances of what she was doing wrong. She was easy to follow, explained things well and used humor. My daughter thought the 90 minute session was very helpful and went by quickly.

"French Native Speaker and Graphic Designer"
Having been born and raised in Montreal, Canada, I grew up speaking and writing in French. I attended French schools all of my life which means I have more than just a few years of French learning but my whole education was immersed in French only. Not only can I say I speak French but lived in a French cultural environment. I spoke English too because my father was British which means that I learned how to translate back and forth between the two languages (that was very helpful at my jobs i... ... More
Tom has been working with my son on pre-calculus. He has proven to be courteous, prompt, professional and patient. He does an excellent job of explaining each process and has helpful "hints" for remembering formulas, etc. On his own time he has created review exercises to assess whether or not knowledge has been retained from previous sessions. Our son now has a more positive outlook about pre-calculus.
