Chris has a way with teaching my son that is engaging, encouraging and ever so patient. My son has been slow in learning math and writing techniques. With Chris' help, he is gaining confidence and is breaking through his overwhelming feeling of being behind in class & feeling excited about understanding his subjects. I'm so grateful for the help getting back on track. Chris is a great tutor!

Beverly is a very knowledgeable and patient tutor. She explains concepts, processes, basics and the fundamentals so they are easily understood.

I very much appreciate the opportunity to learn from Beverly.
