After studying A LOT for a couple of quizzes but getting low grades, my mom found Avi to help. Avi has explained Algebra to me so I am not just trying to memorize formulas. I see why I am doing the problems and how to check my answers. I have gotten an "A+" on my last three tests and it's nice understanding ...
