As a teacher myself, having the opportunity to work with someone extremely knowledgeable, yet also understanding and patient with my extreme limitations, was a great help. Even better, for someone like me (beginning to lose my short term memory), I discovered that what he had taught me really STUCK! I also appreciated greatly the fact that he made himself available with the follow-up questions that I had.
Christine really helped me get my essay done and revised. I'm a lot more confident that I'm going to make a good grade, and I feel like I have a better knowledge of putting information together and tying it all up in a conclusion.
My son was having a very difficult time in HS geometry. He tried attending every tutoring session and help session his teacher had time for. Understanding the teacher/student ratio, I knew my son needed one on one help. He was just not learning the material, and needed one on one help. From the beginning Michael was willing to help. He took the time to figure out where the disconnect was. He took the time to explain test taking skills, and explained preparation for tests as well as test techniques. Michael never treated my son as if he was the problem. He guided him, and slowly began to adapt to his learning style. It feels really good to see my son's face and reaction when he got a 90% on his quiz. Not to mention his midterm- 86%. With high school kids being overwhelmed with sports, lack of sleep, anxiety, and deadlines, having a personal tutor has helped take the stress off my son. Michael is very flexible and often times can see us with short notice. He is also flexible with tutoring time. If my son needs extra help, he is willing to stay an extra hour. What is very helpful also is the session review. I receive an email from Michael explaining what was covered in the session, and what was covered. I highly recommend him.
