The mischaracterization explicit in this review is upsetting to say the least. In the course of working with hundreds of students over the years, there are bound to be some students who want something for nothing. Sadly, Michelle is a prime example of that. On March 10, 2013, I agreed to conduct an initial session with Michelle's daughter, never once asserting that it would be a free "consultation." In fact, Michelle and I had a lengthy consultation via telephone several days prior to the initial meeting! In the interest of immediately assisting Michelle and her daughter, I met with Michelle and her daughter on my fiancee's birthday, a Sunday, during the middle of the afternoon, and spent almost three hours with them teaching her daughter basic math and verbal strategies. I only billed for a fraction of that time (i.e., 1.25 hours), acknowledging that the duration of the session might have been more than Michelle had budgeted for. During the tail end of our session, as we developed a detailed plan of study, it became clear that Michelle had a very fixed budget and thus I generously reduced my billable time by over 50%. Her contentions to the contrary are hurtful, patently untrue, and indicate a real lack of professionalism and judgment on her part. In the aftermath of my lesson, she - without contacting me - advertised to replace me as a tutor, thus ending our tutor-student relationship. Now, almost 2 months later, Michelle is leveling libelous remarks about my character and my professional ability. It is a pity that such behavior exists in a field that I love and have devoted myself to for over a decade.

"Fabulous tutor."
