My high school son was taking a trigonometry course at the junior college and was becoming worried and discouraged. He was falling behind and needed help a.s.a.p. These classes are usually fast-paced and cover a broad range of material over a short amount of time, so it was imperative that he received help immediately. We found Irene and within just a couple of hours of contacting her, she responded back and was able to set up sessions beginning that same weekend. Irene completely restored his confidence in learning trigonometry! Her warm personality and patience set him at ease immediately. She was able to pinpoint the areas where he was struggling and explain the material in a way that made it easy to understand. She's always prompt, professional, and made it very convenient to schedule sessions. Any time we needed to ask a question, she would respond back almost immediately. She's extremely skilled and knowledgeable in targeting where a student's weaknesses are and re-teaching the material to them in a way that they'll not only grasp and understand it, but restore their confidence and give them the motivation to want to succeed. Thank you Irene!
My daughter was happy to meet with Irene and is looking forward to her next visit/lesson. My daughter feels that with Irene's help that she will understand geometry better as well as raise her grade. Thank you.
Clare was very happy with tonight's meeting. She received help with current homework and a plan for looking forward. I think we have a regular Wednesday date!!!
If you need help in math look no further. Irene helped me on very short notice and was able to get three tutoring sessions set up within 5 days of contacting her. Irene was just the help I needed. I failed a test at the junior college and in three short 2 hour sessions I earned an A on my retest. Irene brought her dry erase board and even set up practice problems for me to do after our session. Thank you Irene. You filled the need perfectly.
Marc, you are all aces! I remember asking you after our last tutorial to call and tell me about the A I knew you would receive. This is by far the best way you could have told me. Thank you.
I have had my issues with math in the past. My famous quote about math was "Math and I have a hate-hate relationship, we just don't mix!" But Irene explained mathematical ideas in a way that no one has before which has completely changed my outlook. I went from "I can't understand math" to "I think I can do this". After so many years of fighting with my mathematics issues I feel I have found someone that can truly help me grasp this difficult subject! She is very sweet and easy going which puts me at ease so that I can learn without fear of judgement.
Ashley, you make it easy for me with all the motivation you bring to the table.
My daughter has regained her enthusiasm for math by working with Irene. Her style has been very collaborative which my daughter finds to be interesting and enjoyable. Since tutoring wasn't just about "getting through Alegebra 2" for us but was about restoring her confidence and enthusiasm for the subject so that she will continue to do well all the way through Calculus, Irene's approach has been just what she needed. First exam since tutoring started and she earned an "A".
Irene is always punctual (even arrives early!), has established a nice relationship with my teenage son, is very knowledgeable in high school math, good at explaining concepts calmly and patiently, and helping him practice. She goes beyond school homework review, and pays attention to other math skills that need to be reinforced and practiced. She is an excellent tutor.
