My son was a sophomore at Marist College and he was struggling in Intermediate Accounting I. We decided to get him some assistance and found Ken in WyzAnt. He was invaluable to our son in both Inter Accounting I and II. He laid out study plans and reviewed the chapters thoroughly at each session. He made our son more confident and self-assured he could tackle all tests. He went from a C+ to an A- in one of the toughest accounting classes at Marist. He was flexible in changing appts if needed to adjust based on my son's schedule. He was willing to communicate with us on how he felt Tyler was doing. Our son now feels he has someone to be able to assist in time of need. Highly recommend, Ken!

Bill was great! Punctual, friendly and easy to reach. My son tried in vain to get off topic as he does not enjoy math; however, Bill was able to redirect him. This was a positive experience for my son which is comforting for me as a parent. I would highly recommend Bill if your child needs math help. I know that if my son needs help in the future, Bill will be my first choice.
