"Professional, flexible tutor"
Linda from Nyack, NY on 7/16/14
Tapi is professional, available, and flexible. My son quickly gained confidence in his ability to understand trigonometry, and really enjoyed his time with Tapi. Tapi has a profound and broad understanding of how children learn. He is knowledgeable about different learning styles and knows how to address deficits and challenges that youngsters can have. He is adept at building not only competencies, but confidence as well. My son received a 92 on the Algebra 2/Trig Regents, after struggling enormously in the class. We will be working with Tapi in 2014-2015 for pre-calculus. He is truly a partner on all levels of a child's success.

Mr.Tapi had helped my son only for few weeks but has done great with his math score in SAT II. He is patient, has a great way of encouraging students, and has strategy to follow up so they are responsible.

Tapi C. was very helpful. He was easy to reach, on time, and contributed to my success. I would highly recommend him.
Tapi replied on 6/23/2014:
I must admit that seeking to complete an entire semester of college calculus in two and half weeks was very adventurous, especially after your long hiatus from math in general, but your diligence paid off and you did exceedingly well in the course.
My only regret is that many of your classmates did not have access to my help; I'm sure their grades could have been salvaged too.
"Brilliant, very accessible tutor with very strong work ethic!"
Olga from New York, NY on 5/27/14
When I was desperately looking for a tutor for my 15 year old kid I could not even imagine that I'd be able to find not just a great tutor, but a great mentor! Tapi designed his lessons based on my child's needs after patiently going over every single issue! Literally after a couple of lessons my son's scores went up by 25 points. Besides the extraordinary knowledge of the subjects, Tapi has something invaluable to offer: Tapi builds up confidence and great learning skills that can be transferred to any field of future studying. I would highly recommend Tapi to anyone!
"Excellent and Accessible Math Tutor"
Claire from Katonah, NY on 4/18/14
Tapi is great. He was available on short notice, flexible about location, and - after just 90 minutes with my daughter - gave her enough support to achieve a 97% on her upcoming math test. I strongly recommend.
"Amazing Tutor "
Nicole from Bronx, NY on 4/5/14
Tapi's warm personality and rapport with my nephew created the type of environment that was essential for him to gain a full understanding of the subject matter. After one session with Tapi my nephew scored a 90% on his calculus test. My nephew's knowledge of the subject has seen drastic improvement and even his teacher has commented on the change in his attitude toward the subject matter.
Tapi's willingness to, modify lessons, try different ways in which to explain and impart information and experiment with new strategies to bring clarity to the subject matter, demonstrates the level of patience and caring that is seldom seen in educators.
I recommend Tapi without any reservation. He is punctual, patient, professional and knowledgeable and is truly an AMAZING tutor.
"Very Patient! "
Renee from White Plains, NY on 3/24/14
I'm an adult that has returned to finish my degree. After years of thinking I escaped the frustrations of math, I was presented with a reminder this past semester. I reached out to Tapi for extra help and he is so good at being able to detect where my problem lies. College Algebra builds quickly and they expect you to remember lessons from years ago to finish equations.
My mind struggles with the layering, but Tapi is building my confidence and incorporates review time from past sections so I know how to move forward.
I highly recommend him for all ages. He is very patient and a math whiz and wants you to succeed and do well in your class!
Tapi replied on 5/18/2014:
Renee, I am very pleased that you got a well-deserved 'A' in this class! Your hard work and perseverance certainly paid off. Near the end, there was a clearly noticeable difference in skill and confidence compared to when we started a few short months ago. I am glad I was able to be your guide on the final stretch to college graduation. Congratulations!

My son did so poorly in calc. 2 of his sophomore year of college that he needed to take it again this year as a junior. His grade was not high enough to continue onto calc. 3. We hired Tapi late into the summer and he worked very intensely with my son. Tapi determined that my son was lacking in skills he should have learned back in pre-calc and calc.1. Tapi is not only very professional, but seems to really care that his students are learning. His tutoring updates were very detailed and I felt confident that my son was working hard and improving. I have no hesitation in recommending him.
"Outstanding tutor for all levels of math"
John from North Easton, MA on 6/1/12
Tapi did a terrific job helping understand, learn, and drill very difficult material in for an accelerated high school calculus course.
He is patient and flexible, a good listener, and was very helpful moving his schedule around weekday and weekend conflicts (sports practices, etc.). Was always very responsive by phone, text, and e-mail.
Would recommend him to anyone.
"Great to work with"
Janet from Avon, MA on 5/26/12
Tapi is a very good tutor. He is very easygoing, which is an important trait in someone my son is working with. I've never used a tutor before, and am very impressed with Tap in particular and WyzAnt in general.
"Great Tutor "
William from Boston, MA on 5/25/12
Tapi is a great tutor. He is very patient with my son. My son feels comfortable with him. He reached out to talk to the teacher to get their input in the tutor. He continues to work with the teacher to better help my son. He is very flexible in time and days. I will use him for the summer to continue as his tutor. I will use him if I needed a tutor.
"Taking the time"
Vanessa from Stoughton, MA on 3/26/12
Tapi and my son are just starting their tutor relationship. Tapi is really taking the time to get to know my son's learning style and the material he is working on. So far so good and it seems to be going very well.
"HONOR ROLL! First time ever!"
Nichole from Brockton, MA on 11/23/11
In August 2011 I submitted a review that Tapi is an educational diamond in the rough. HE IS! I am so pleased to say that our daughter made the Honor Roll this term (November 2011) in the 6th grade. This is the first time in our household we've read the words 'Honor Roll'.
A new IEP was done last month and she has progressed so much with Tapi's help that the educational specialists have stopped taking her out her classes in each field: speech, reading and comprehension, and math… something the school system did with her since 3rd grade. The only recommendation was assisting her in advocating for herself if she doesn't understand. This next hurdle is to conquer her shyness and self-confidence along with mastering her education with Tapi.
"Great Results from a great tutor"
Keisha from Roslindale, MA on 11/3/11
My daughter was struggling in Algebra and when Tapi started tutoring her, in less than a month, we saw her grade go from a D to an A-/B+. He has given her confidence and all the skills needed to get the results we expect. Thanks Tapi!
Lakeisha from Brockton, MA on 8/1/11
My son has an Individual Education Plan with the Brockton Public School System and according to that his disability is "Communication". He has a speech impediment so it's hard for him to communicate when he's not giving the time to get out what he needs to say. He loves going to school but the lessons were always a challenge for him.
My son has been working with Tapi for a month now and I definitely see a difference. I was worried and feeling hopeless. Tapi has changed that in less than a month. He encourages him and takes the time needed to make sure that he understands. He's been awesome and my son looks forward to his time with Tapi. I'm glad that I decided to find a tutor, and I made a great choice in choosing Tapi.
Laura from Brockton, MA on 5/24/11
Once my husband and I recognized that our twins needed help, we came to Wyzant in the hopes of finding someone that was a good fit for our needs. From the first meting with Tapi we knew that we had made the right decision. He assessed each individual child’s educational level, identified the specific gaps in knowledge, and then built a plan to address their individual needs. I cannot tell you how happy we are to work with him, and the boys really like him as well. He is patient, punctual, available, and knowledgeable. We look forward to working with him to get the boys on track and beyond to reach their full academic potential.
"Book this Tutor!!!"
Trecia from Somerville, MA on 3/21/11
Very patient and personable with my son. Saw an immediate difference in study habits. He knows how to engage and keep his interest. My son's confidence is elevated and he really enjoys working with Tapi. I highly recommend!
