"Conscientious and fun-loving tutor"
For most of my academic life I was a student of the Spanish language. When I was in elementary school, I was taught basic Spanish while enrolled in the Enrichment (i.e. GATE) Program.

Andreas has been very helpful in terms of teaching me how to think like a mathematician when approaching my schoolwork. He not only teaches you what you need to know to succeed on your exams, but he also will give you a deeper understanding of what you're doing. He's also extremely knowledgeable in many fields relating to math and computer science. After an hour with Andreas, I feel like a smarter person.

I became a writing tutor here at Contra Costa College in the winter of 2000 when I was a student working on my direct transfer to the Contra Costa.

Nancy is a wonderful tutor. She is extremely patient with my daughter and is always very organized and punctual. Her system of learning is easy for my daughter to understand.
