Suriyan is reliable, knowledgeable and enthusiastic. If you tell him clearly that you do not understand a concept he will spend as much time on it as you want and not rush you to the next thing. He does not get frustrated when you need to have material explained again or in more detail.

I met with Matthew a lot in preparation for the GRE, and he definitely helped me brush up on my math skills, verbal strategies, and writing technique. He was very patient, especially on my off days, when I wasn't in the mood for GRE. I improved my GRE score into the range I was hoping for. He's great about figuring out the best way that you learn and working with you in that way. He's also very encouraging and confident in you. If God forbid, I have to take any other test I would refer back to Matthew. He also is easy to make your schedule with and any changes that need to be changed he's very responsive and quick!

I just had my first lesson with John and I was very impressed by his knowledge of the subject and the way he was able to understand my needs during the studies and the material I needed to master.

My daughter was in danger of failing the 5th grade and desperately needed help with math. We enlisted Scott's help a month before the FCAT and he was able work with my daughter so that she understood the concepts needed in order to pass. Not only did she pass the FCAT but his teaching methods were so great that she brought her grade up from an "F" to a "B" in just one grade period!!! Scott is kind, patient and really targets the areas needed for improvement!! For anyone with an elementary or middle school-aged child that need help in math, Scott is definitely a great tutor!!!!! My daughter thinks the world of him and my husband and I are so grateful!!
