Duncan has a way to keep our son's attention to what is being explained. He knows the subject matter. He is also good at dealing with teenagers, he relates to them in a way that makes math not seem a threat to them.
My fist impression of Duncan is that he is intuitively versed in and knows a great deal about mathematics. He has been very helpful in the instruction of my son as he continues to gain a greater sense of Geometry. My son and I are happy to report that he has given some keen insight into how to approach Geometry and helped him to master some of the more difficult concepts when it comes to proofs. We will continue with this tutor and we as excited to see how much further he can push our son.
Duncan is exceptional with his work. As unenthusiastic when it comes to math with my son, Duncan can make it more workable for Him is a tremendous feat. I would not hesitate to recommend Duncan to anyone.
Duncan was very thorough in determining what we were looking for in a tutor - someone to introduce the concepts of calculus prior to taking CalcAB this fall. I particularly appreciated that he asked if my son was "on board" with summer tutoring. In the initial session, he evaluated the current level of my son's math skills, introduced him to new concepts, and helped set some goals. They met once a week during the summer to review the assignment for the previous week, clarify any issues, and move on to new material when deemed appropriate. Although my son hasn't mastered Calculus, he is familiar with the concepts and will enter his class in the fall with confidence. This is exactly what we had hoped for, and Duncan achieved this goal with patience, enthusiasm, and some useful practical advice. Expectations met! Thank you Duncan.
Duncan is a great math tutor. I am studying for the GRE and he broke down the math problems in an easy way that I could understand.
Since my son started working with Duncan, he finally gets the concept of math. Duncan is wonderful in every way. He has also become a mentor to my son in other subjects. My son is actually learning how to study with Duncan's guidance. He has slowed down and his work is organized for the first time. Duncan is a treasure.
I have been tutored by Duncan for a few months now and he has been a great help to me in my college algebra class that I've been taking. He always goes at my own pace and helps me to understand the concepts that I'm having trouble with. He's always able to meet me near my home and is available to meet with me weekly or more often if I need extra help that week. I would recommend Duncan for any math student who wants an approachable, knowledgeable tutor to help them with their math work.
Duncan is a lifesaver. My daughter had given up in her trigonometry class. It's been 30+ years since I've taken any type of math and was never good at it. My daughter's grade was an F. She now has a solid B and has confidence. I would highly recommend Duncan to anyone who has a struggling math student. He was recommended to me by a parent. I am so happy that he was able to help my daughter.
Duncan is doing great helping my daughter. He has helped her understand some of the lessons and the material that she didn't understand. She re-took a test and said she felt really good about the material. Thank you, Duncan.
Duncan was able to get my son to engage in learning high school algebra without spoon feeding him the answers. My son learned during every lesson and was able to apply the material into his classroom assignments. His understanding improved as well as his grades.
Duncan was very on top of things! He made a huge effort to look over my lab homework prior to our meeting as well as pointing me in the right direction to get additional on-line assistance. If he were unsure of a concept (because this was biostatistics), he admitted that he was unsure and proceeded to look into my book further until it came together. The concepts were explained clearly and I think he will be extremely helpful in guiding me through this difficult course. His patience, friendly demeanor, and energy were fantastic!
Duncan is great. He listens and thinks very quickly, responding to the situation with agility. My daughter is a great deflector, but he doesn't let her get away with any shenanigans. For instance, after going over Geometry proofs he asked, "Do you get it?" and she said, "Yeah." Most tutors at this point are drawn into her complacency by her smile, but Duncan challenged her to prove that understands the concept by working a problem on her own. I am impressed by anyone who can see past the facade of understanding she props up.
Duncan was great. He was patient and made learning much easier. He explains things in a way that helped me understand. I think the homework helped as we would go over it and this would help both of us figure out where I needed the most help. I would recommend for sure.
Our son has improved significantly thanks to his work with Duncan. We find Duncan to be very effective and flexible. We highly recommend him.
Excellent Tutor. He reviews the material & prepares for each session. My college daughter's grade has improved greatly! And now she can move on herself as she understands the statistics course. Thank you Duncan!
My son Michael and I would like to thank Duncan M. for his help in preparing Michael to take the ASVAB test. Duncan had a great rapport with Michael and was there for him to answer any question while doing homework. Michael received a high enough score to join the Army and we thank Duncan for his time and effort to make Michael's dream come true. He couldn't have done it without Duncan and we would recommend him to anyone.
We had Duncan work with both of our high school kids in math, as they were struggling. He was very patient, organized, and diligent in covering the material needed to help them pass the class. Both kids worked well with him. We will be contacting Duncan in the fall when school resumes to help keep them up to date on math going forward.
Duncan helped our son prepare for a entrance math exam for the WECA Electrical apprentice program which he passed with flying colors. We couldn't have done it without Duncan. Thank you Sir!
