"Perfect for teenage girls!"

Our family would like to THANK Candis who is a wonderful tutor! My daughter and her friends adored her. She has a positive determination for reaching her goals which led to very positive stories for my young daughter to hear. She is playful yet firm at making sure my daughter accomplished her tasks. We wish her well, as we know she will achieve at her new endeavors. She will be hard to replace.

I highly recommend Candis as a math tutor. Our daughter was having trouble with Geometry, in that she would understand the concepts during class, but would have trouble with homework and tests. Candis worked with our daughter during three sessions prior to her first semester final, and her grade improved significantly from her prior test. We are continuing with Candis for the second semester in order to make sure the concepts are firmly in place.
Candis is punctual, professional, and friendly. Our daughter feels at ease with her, and Candis quickly focuses on the problem areas in a manner which is easily understood. We are happy to have found such a wonderful tutor on our first try!
Update: Our daughter got an "A" in the second semester, and recently declared "I love math!".

I was taking Algebra online after over 20 years out of school and it was a nightmare! Candis was patient and explained everything so well! I had attempted the class twice before, once I had to drop the class and the other I failed miserably but then I got smart and got a tutor. After working with Candis, I got a B in a class that I couldn't even pass before! I think that speaks for itself!!

All I can say is she's the best tutor we've ever had! After the second week she helped our 7th grader bring his math grade up. Her method of teaching is fun and creative and she's always very professional.

Thank you for that feedback. Such a great compliment.

Knowledgeable and professional, Candis has a natural talent for clearly explaining complex ideas. She is also very personable, reliable, and accommodating with her time. She really helped my daughter, and I warmly recommend her.

Candis responded quickly to our e-mail inquiry, was punctual to our appt. and we couldn't have been more pleased with her interaction with my 8th grade daughter. We wanted help for my daughter to help prepare her for her final exam in Algebra. She had about a 91% in the class, but just wanted her to feel like she had a better understanding of all the concepts, not just most of them. My daughter felt SO much more confident after their hour together. She told me that Candis was awesome and we would definitely have her come back when other concepts arise that she's feeling shaky about. I'm not sure how much longer Candis will be tutoring, because with the remarkable gifts that she has in teaching, making concepts relevant, clear and concise, and her personable nature, she'll be snatched up soon by some institution. Thank you Candis!

Candis makes the lesson fun for my daughter. she is very encouraging and they laugh a bit, too. my daughter works hard between lessons to make sure to be prepared for Candis.

I love to hear that!

Candis is amazing with our son. She has a great ability to know what he does not understand, and more importantly how to get him to understand it!
Wonderful person, smart and kind, a great teacher!
Candis replied on 11/7/2012:
Thank you for the great feedback! I love working with him.

Candis is such an awesome tutor and an exceptionally sweet and caring person. My daughter has always struggled in math and Candis has been such a great help. Last year she helped my daughter with Algebra and this year it is Geometry. Candis is very helpful, polite and always on time. Thanks Candis for being there for us!
"Great Tutor! Turning the light on for my son!"
Barbara from Simi Valley, CA on 7/10/12
I contacted Candis to help my son study and prepare for the ASVAB test. He was having a bit of difficulty in the math area of this test. Candis has been extremely helpful for my son. I was wary about getting him a tutor as I know he can be stubborn and thinks he "knows everything". Each time the lesson is over he is so happy that he has learned yet another way of solving the math problems. Candis is patient with him and urges him to write down the problems instead of doing them in his head. I can see that my son is catching on to the math problems that he was stumped on before. I would certainly recommend Candis' tutoring. She has certainly inspired my son to actually be happy about doing a math problem! Thank you so much Candis.
"My daughter LOVED her!!"
Marni from Pacific Palisades, CA on 5/31/12
Candis is very good at what she does! My daughter said she explained everything in a way that made it seem so much easier, and, she got a 92% on her test.
Candis replied on 5/31/2012:
Thanks so much, Marni! It was really good working with your daughter. 92% is awesome! It's good to know she did so well.
Yvonne from Woodland Hills, CA on 5/1/12
Candis is very knowledgeable and communicates very well with her students, which makes then understand certain challenging formulas in algebra 2.
Candis replied on 5/1/2012:
Thank you very much for the feedback! I am glad that I have been able to help your son.
Karen from Canoga Park, CA on 3/22/12
I was extremely impressed with how quickly Candis responded to my emails through WyzAnt. She arrived on time, and was very patient and sweet with my daughter (who insisted initially that she "didn't want a tutor!") However, when Candis left, my daughter said "why can't my teachers teach like that?". She had a HUGE SMILE on her face (rare for my child when discussing Algebra) and she now understands the lesson that had eluded her before and was excited about the potential of performing better in her classwork and on tests. I am kicking myself for not doing this sooner, could have saved a lot of tears. HIGHLY RECOMMENDED.
Candis replied on 3/22/2012:
It was so great to read this. I loved working with your daughter. I am glad to hear that she's feeling more confident with the material. I look forward to helping her continue to improve.
