"Excellent tutor: Very thorough, patient"
- Stephanie, Berkeley, CA on 5/2/12
Hediye is truly an incredible tutor and teacher. I worked with her as I studied for the Math Praxis II (code 0061) exam.
First, she is very patient and supportive. As I had not studied much of this material in depth for some time (years!), I felt really out of the loop with much of the material. So I greatly appreciated how Hediye was so patient with me.
Second, Hediye seemed to have a good sense of what I would need to focus on in order to pass. Clearly knowing all material through and through is ideal, but re-gaining that knowledge in 4 weeks time is near impossible. So I found it super helpful that Hediye identified the most essential elements and formulas for me for each content area covered on the test. I really appreciated how she also explained both simple and high-level content areas. This was perfect for my preparation for the test.
Third, Hediye is incredibly focused. I appreciated how she was great on an interpersonal level (warm, friendly) but also got right down to business. Every session that we had was highly focused. And we always got through so much material!
When I worked with Hediye, I went in to each session with specific questions, and some ideas for what content I wanted to review with her. This really worked for me. She was happy to answer questions (and always did so in a very accessible way) and then we worked on Math problems together.
As an educator, I think that the best teachers are those who the student wants to work hard for. I respect Hediye, so I worked really hard and did not want to disappoint! Like I said, she is a truly amazing tutor and teacher.
"Efficient Math tutoring for the GMAT"
- Vimal, Vallejo, CA on 3/5/15
Hediye is very patient and clear with her explanations on math fundamentals. I came to her confused about what to study for the GMAT because my last tutor was not clear and she has put me on the right path. She knows the material very well and provides efficient strategies that can be used to save you time while taking the test. I feel much more confident in my math skills and feel that I am prepared to take the GMAT.
"Great with my teenager!"

Hediye is working with my son who is a Junior in high school. He was struggling with pre-calc but after 1 session with Hediye his next test grade was a B! He said that she explains things very clearly and does not just tell him how to do it, but explains it so he is able to understand and then do problems on his own. She also tries very hard to accommodate his busy schedule and has been flexible with dates.

I really needed help with my Statistics and Hediye solved that problem. Not only is she a great tutor with an amazing knowledge of Statistics and math but she is a fun and enjoyable person to be around. She taught me great tricks and simple solutions to big problems I had while keeping me focused and thoroughly explaining everything problem to me step by step. She creates a great learning atmosphere and I would highly recommend her to anyone who needs help with math.

Hediye is an awesome tutor! She is punctual, professional and an incredible person. My daughter absolutely enjoyed her math lesson with her.
"Great experience with her"
- Tammy, Castro Valley, CA on 2/27/12
We had a great experience with her for my 10th grade daughter. She is patient with very good knowledge. She is also flexible for her schedule. We would definitely schedule next meet with her soon.
"Great for prepping for a Final"
- Tatia, Lafayette, CA on 1/25/12
Hediye was very responsive when initially contacted. She came to our home, was soft spoken, and patient. My son had a C- on his progress report going into his first semester final of high school AP Statistics. He did an Exam Cram course (2 hours) and then did 1.5 hrs of tutoring with Hediye. He got an 81 on the final. We are very pleased.

Patient, understanding, and willing to help the student until they get the material FULLY. She operates by the student's or parent's standards so she covers all the academic wants and needs no matter how long it takes. Very reasonable and an excellent tutor overall.
"clear and effective and good sense of humor!"
- Jessie, San Leandro, CA on 11/10/11
Very clear and patient, flexible with meeting times, she has been very helpful with a large amount of material in a short span of time.
Good command of subject matter.
"Building confidence in student with Math Phobia"
- Denise, Martinez, CA on 12/22/10
My adult daughter has to get through the basic algebra requirements at DVC to move onto her dream of attending a 4 year college. Math anxiety plus was and is her nemesis. Hedlye's patience, clear explanation, and willingness to be flexible with her schedule made her a great fit for my daughter. We just got her grade and she passed college Algebra. One more class in statistics. I know with Hedlye tutoring her, she'll take that on and succeed as well.
