Always quality sessions with David, he truly wants the children to learn and do well. My daughter was struggling to read the book Hunger Games, she just wasn't able to connect. She was frustrated because all her friends loved the book. She was going to give up and choose another book and David was determined to get her to understand and want to continue with the book. After working with her, he was successful, she is now almost done with the book and loves it and can't wait to read the sequels.

Sam is a good tutor. He is always on time and spends all his time on tutoring. He also prepares ahead of time for his sessions. He is very pleasant and easy to talk with. The subject material is Latin, very challenging, and it may take some time to know how well things are working out.
