5/7/2014 Mr. G. has a lot of past experiences to bring to the tutoring table. My daughter has, or had, very poor study habits. After only 4 sessions with Mr. G. her English teacher is raving about the change in my daughter's homework and class participation. My daughter said her teacher came to her with shock and stated "You have an A in my class and I'm not talking about a crappy A, you have a very strong A in my class." I have also noticed a difference in her attitude about homework; she studies without being asked and hasn't used the words, "I don't have any homework" since starting her lessons with Mr. G. My daughter looks forward to her sessions and has bragged about her tutor to her friends. Mr. G. has also given me some advice in dealing with a special needs family member; his past experiences have been very appreciated in this area. I really liked Mr. G's profile and he has surpassed all my expectations and then some. My daughter says "Mr. G. really understands me."
10/21/2014 Mr G. has not only helped my daughter with organizational skills and study habits, but Mr. G's experience has helped to diagnose my daughter's vision and reading problems. My daughter has complained about double vision since kindergarten; she has been to the eye doctors at least 20 times but I was always told she has 20/20 vision. Mr. G told me my daughter may have Dyslexia and convergence issues. He suggested I take her to an ophthalmologist that specializes in pediatrics. My daughter was then diagnosed with severe convergence problems meaning her eyes don't work together, causing double vision. This condition is magnified by long hours on the computer, causing her headaches (she had an MRI for severe headaches earlier this year). Due to Mr G.'s knowledge and recommendations, my daughter is starting to get the accommodations she needs: large print text, paper vs. computer assignments, breaks from the computer. My daughter was able to finish her Economics assignment in record time on paper.
Mr. G is very knowledgeable and patient when working with our son. Our son is now more confident when trying to complete his math homework without constant coaching. We are very thankful to have found a tutor with his expertise.
Rick helps our son and has been a Godsend to him and our family. He is patient and helpful. He provides instruction and is an "organizational" coach as well. I cannot say enough good things.
I cant say enough good things about Mr. G! Not only has he had a huge impact on improving our sons academic success, he has proved to be an invaluable resource for our entire family. We have learned so much from his words of encouragement and advice. Mr. G has vast knowledge and experience in working with teenagers who need help with learning a different way to learn. Thank you.
