Yuliya, I am sorry you feel that way. I don't make travels to Brooklyn for tutoring for any student because it is a bit too far and unfamiliar to me. It is not only you. I say this to all students. As said in my profile, I only do tutoring in Manhattan because that is what I am most comfortable with. I still do in-home, college, or any tutoring in the Manhattan, Long Island City, or Roosevelt Island areas. I am sorry the places were noisy, but choosing the right quiet public place can be a hit or miss, especially in Manhattan. We did move somewhere quiet for your benefit after because I also wanted to find a place more quiet. I am always open to suggestions. As for communication, I am often very quick to respond and easy to reach by text, phone, or email. I am sorry I can't tutor every student if the location or schedule doesn't suit. I have told you before your location is too far (especially with your home being over an hour away), so it would not work out and I can't be convinced. I would suggest finding a tutor who lives in Brooklyn, so they would be more willing to travel to any location you would like. I hope you find a great tutor on here! Thank you for your feedback.
