Carmen has agreed to tutor my 19 month old daughter in Spanish. This is difficult because we do not speak Spanish in the household. Carmen has shown to be flexible and works with my daughter at her level.

Stephen has tutored my son and daughter in algebra I and geometry. Not only is he very knowledgeable in his content area but his explanation of the material is clear and concise.
