Jahi has been great from the start. His initial tutoring session was all about trying to determine what my 16 year old math student aptitude was. Once that was established, Jahi was able to determine based on homework assignments, quizzes, and test what to work on during each session. Jahi is very informative, patient and knowlegable of the subject (Algebra II). My son enjoys jahi's approach to tutoring and is very pleased with him on his delivery of help. What we like most about Jahi is his determination to ensure your student does well and is learning the subject.

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. We have been working with Nancy twice a week for about a month or so and I am very happy with the results that I have seen in my daughter's understanding of math concepts. She is also very encouraging which my daughter responds to very well. I'm very happy we found her!
