Newton has been great for my 16 y/o son in Pre-Calculus. His grade has gone from a B- to an A-. He has really helped his understanding of the concepts. Thanks, Newton!

"AP Physics, Physics, Calculus, Algebra I and II Tutor"
I have been teaching Physics for the past 5 years and I truly love it. Before that, I tutored it for 4 years. In college I chose Physics as my major because I enjoyed it and it made sense to me. I decided to tutor it because I wanted others to see the same things. My goal, still, is to show my students that Physics is not hard and can be fun to learn. I have taught at large public schools and small private ones. I am not limited to Physics though, I have also taught Algebra, Algebra II ... ... More

Tracy was quick to respond to my initial email, in which I inquired on ASVAB tutoring services for my son. Tracy was also attentive to my sonâ€™s schedule and tutoring needs. She was very accommodating and made herself available within a dayâ€™s notice to meet-up for the first tutor session.
After my sonâ€™s first tutoring session, he had good things to say about the tutor. In fact, my son was studying when I arrived home from work, without me having to tell him to do so. According to my son, Tracy provided detailed explanation to solve the math problems easily, at a his level of understanding. She not only showed on how to get the answer to a problem, but Tracy also emphasized reasons behind the solutions.

Ernesto, you came over and were not prepared to help me with the homework. You admitted you were rusty from learning it a while ago. You were mostly quiet during the lesson or repeated stuff I had said 5 minutes earlier. The help provided for the homework was close to 0 during the lesson. Then you sent me some general physics help with the hw, maybe a fraction of 1 problem. I came up with as much as I could on my own, and got a very low grade on the hw. It is great and all that you did difficult problems and that you said your approach is to help with concepts, but reality is I learned nearly everything by myself or in the review session. Why would I pay money to get close to no help? Did you teach me state-space, Laplace, setting up transfer functions? Point blank no. So to say you helped with general concepts is honestly just talk. I don't mean to be harsh but this is the truth, and I payed money to receive no help and then fail the homework- that is the reality. I think you might be a great tutor for other subjects, and I probably wouldn't hesitate to ask for your help in say high school calculus or something. But to not have prepared and not come knowledgeable on a subject you are tutoring is poor. I hope my review can help you understand what is expected of a paid tutor. It might seem harsh but I'm giving my honest, non-sugarcoated opinion. Good luck.
