Mr. G provided math tutoring to my son, a Penn State freshman, in December of 2013.
My son reported to me that Mr. G was an excellent tutor, as he was patient, knowledgeable and very thorough in both his preparation and teaching style.
I would not hesitate to employ the teaching skills of Mr. G in the future.
