Ricardo is an excellent teacher. He is always on time, prepared, brings a ton of new work for me, and is very patient in the lessons. He is personable and friendly while being very professional and efficient. We speak in Spanish for almost the entire hour, and he knows how to speak so that I understand and can respond at my level. The books he's recommended I use as references have been much more helpful than the books I was choosing from the bookstore. I highly recommend him as a Spanish tutor!

Vilma is an extremely patient tutor who went above and beyond her job. She was very knowledgable in Organic Chemistry and was able to provide extra resources to help me understand the subject. She worked hard with me until I understood my mistakes and helped me perform better in class. Without her help I would not have been able to pass Organic Chemistry. She was very easy to always get in touch with and was very flexible with my schedule. She is a great tutor and I would recommend her for anybody.

Robert broke everything down from General chemistry in order for me to understand organic chemistry. He was very patient and work with my learning style. I was able to ask questions without feeling intimidated. He also took a look at a problem in my book and broke the book down in steps. I was impressed with his tutoring style.
