I try to explain math concepts to my daughter and I pull my hair out and she gets very frustrated as well. Rich accomplishes more in 1.5 hours/week than I do with endless hours. My daughter says that he explains things in easy-to-understand terms. A great teacher.
James was very kind and willing to help me with any questions I had on the chapter. However, I needed extra help reviewing the concepts. He was unsure on how to go about this, and was also unsure about the concepts himself. He asked me several questions and did not always reach the answer that the textbook had provided. He was solid on the basic concepts of Algebra 2, but not on the more complicated things that I needed help with.
Nathan worked very well with us today. He is very knowledgeable and has a lot of patience. He repeats steps that he needs to make sure student understands. He is good for us and very available and understands the expectations we have for our child. It's a pleasure to work with him and we look forward to continuing. Thanks, Nathan!!!
