Fassil is a great tutor, we have had two appointments so far each lasting two hours and they were worth more than every penny. He is very patient, explains the questions very well and walks through the formula step by step as I need, all while explaining why the steps in the formula are neccessary. We also made alist of my weak points so I know what to watch out for on tests. A good example of how these past two tutoring appointments have helped me is that on my second statistics test at solano community college I recieved 31% my teacher allows everyone else in the class one chance to retake a test, after the tutoring I felt much more confident in my knowledge and I recieved 85% my grade in the class has increased drastically.
