Great tutor, very nice, easygoing, easy to reach, keeps tutoring fun-filled, very helpful and knowledgeable. Always goes the extra mile to help his students.
I met Mary for my first tutoring session at a local bookstore. She was almost 30 minutes late, but she had called me to let me know so I didn't mind as much.
I think Mary's approach in tutoring has merit. She asks students to read questions out loud, which helps the student catch an issue his/her self. I found this very effective.
However, I was very unimpressed with her ability to actually explain concepts, particularly algebra and more conceptual math. It was hit or miss - either she explained it very well, or it was very very difficult to understand what she was trying to teach. She seemed to lack confidence in her tutoring and I left the session more confused than not.
After thinking about the lesson for a while, I decided not to continue my tutoring with her. I think her personal tutoring style (mostly auditory) and my learning style (visual) conflicted. Still, Mary was very pleasant and professional.
Economics. What I like most him is his vast knowledge and his way of explaining. Jaime helped me acquire confidence.
