You were very friendly, very understanding and very very helpful. Very patient and never made me feel dumb for asking questions which is a huge thing for me. You have really helped me feel more prepared and confident for this SAT. Thank you so much!

You're super awesome! I have been self-studying Calculus because my school doesn't do AP Classes, we can just take the exams. I have been struggling a lot to find resources, etc. and sometimes it's very time consuming. I really enjoy listening to your though process and reasoning, it helps me understand the problem really well. Sometimes I can get the right answer but your ideas make it so much easier and quicker. I really appreciate what you're doing and I wish you all the best!

You were super patient and offered helpful practice problems during our session! I liked your rating system and will definitely incorporate it into my own tutoring sessions. Also, the personal feedback you gave afterward was kind and constructive. Overall, thank you for a fantastic session!

Hey Karen! This was awesome. Your session definitely helped me gain a better understanding of using trig identities while integrating. I can't wait for the next session!
