Charlie has helped many people prepare for standardized tests, this was obvious when I met with him to prepare for one myself. He knew great strategies for maximizing my score and saving time. Charlie fit the right amount of material into our tutorial. It was very helpful to meet with him.
"Achieved the Impossible!"
Marni from Columbia, IL on 5/21/14
When my daughter first began her chemistry lessons with Charles, she was convinced that it wouldn't make a difference. Chemistry was like an unknown foreign language to her and she was failing. The anxiety and stress she was experiencing was affecting all of her classes and her self esteem was at an all-time low. Within a few weeks, her entire outlook changed. She told me that she couldn't believe how much of a difference there was with her understanding of Chemistry. After a few more weeks she made the statement "Chemistry is actually kind of fun once you understand it". I almost passed out when I heard it! My previously sullen 16-year-old little girl was actually excited about a subject that scared her to death only a couple of months earlier. Her heightened confidence level was amazing. I am so impressed with Charles' ability to patiently teach someone who truly believed they could not be taught. He is patient and kind and really knows how to reach his students. He is also easy to deal with, very flexible and understanding. I could never thank him enough for his help.
"Perfect Match for Our Son"
Erik from Glencoe, MO on 12/11/13
Our son ran into trouble with Honors Geometry this year, so my wife suggested that we get him a professional tutor. We really lucked out when WyzAnt found Charles for us! In slightly less than two months, not only has Charles helped our son with Geometry (helped raise his class average by 11 points), he has been an exceptional resource for Honors Chemistry, too (helped raise our son's class average by 9 points).
Charles has the perfect temperament to work with our son, and our son has really responded well to Charles' methods. In addition to the obvious and tangible improvement in class performance, we've noticed our son enjoying his classes more and exuding a higher level of confidence.
I can't recommend Charles highly enough!
"Great with kids!"

You know it's a successful session when your 12 year old son has a smile on his face after!! Charles is great with our two boys.

My son has been working with Charles on Chemistry for the past couple of months and it has been a great help.
He is very knowledgeable on many subjects, has an innate ability to find the best way to work with your child's learning style and makes the sessions and homework interesting and relevant.
Very glad we found him on WyzAnt as this will definately improve my son's GPA!!
"Great Responsive Tutor!"

Charlie has been an asset with our daughter and her reading challenges. She has been more attentive at home, and is building more confidence through private tutoring. Charlie has been more than reasonable meeting us in our neighborhood, far from his own home. Couldn't recommend anyone better. Very pleased.

I just wanted to comment on my daughter's tutor, Charles G. He was extremely organized and helped my daughter raise her ACT score by 6 points. He worked with her to develop a plan that she could manage and stick to and he was great at their tutoring sessions. Thanks, Charlie!!

Our 10 yr old loves Charlie!!! He looks forward to learning and is totally at ease with Charlie's teaching style, and always comments, "I really like Charlie!!!" Charles makes learning fun and is a wonderful mentor for our son!!! I can't express how far his smile and warm charming countenance influences our child!! Our son has a new inspiration for learning!!!
"Thank you Charlie!"

Charlie started working with my son this summer in Spanish. It has been a great experience so far. Charlie has brought the calm and fun back into a subject that had been very challenging for my son. I also selected Charlie because he tutors other subjects. That is proving to be of great help because Charlie has been very willing to work with my son on other subjects such as biology. Charlie's feedback emails after the lessons are especially helpful because of the guidance and suggestions Charlie makes for continued self study in between the tutorial meetings with him. Charlie emphasizes helping his students develop a "workable" study strategy that helps students achieve their academic goals in a way where school work doesn't consume all of the home life. Charlie has been 100% reliable. He has also been flexible in working with my family on arranging a suitable tutorial meeting schedule.
My son said he really likes Mr. G because he is calm, patient, and makes the "stuff" fun. My son also said Mr. G says it's okay to try even if your answer is wrong because a good way of learning is figuring out your errors. My son said Mr. G says trying and seeing where your errors are helps you know where to spend your study time. Listening to my son, I am very pleased observing my son learn about and develop a study process and strategy that works for him with Mr. G's help. The study skills Charlie emphasizes are useful beyond the particular subject Charlies happens to be tutoring a child on.
Thank you Charlie!
