"Intelligent, effective tutor."
Kathy from Tacoma, WA on 11/11/13
PoShan has been an enormous help to our daughter in her pre-calculus class. She is extremely intelligent and able to make the complicated understandable. Her help has given our daughter the confidence she needs to perform. She also makes herself available by phone and is willing to review homework assignments as well.
"Excellent tutor - adapts well to my learning style."
Erin from Annandale, VA on 7/31/13
After just a few lessons I am already highly impressed with PoShan as a tutor. She's a natural! She has a very adaptable teaching style and has already figured out how to present material in a way I can absorb - sometimes explaining it 2 or 3 different ways (plus homework) until I get it.
She also makes a point of really helping me to understand the "why" behind the problem, rather than just relying on me to memorize it. My GRE exam is two months away, but I already feel so much more comfortable with the material and better prepared with her guidance than when I was trying to study on my own.
"Very patient and thorough."

PoShan is very patient and has a great ability to offer you different ways of approaching a problem. She is extremely thorough and makes sure that you understand what you need before she moves on. PoShan is always a pleasure to work with and easily available particularly with her online option which has helped with time crunches with testing and exams.

I needed a last minute tutor for algebra 2 and PoShan was perfect! She helped me go through all the things I didn't understand and they made more sense to me! She taught things to me so I could understand in minutes which would've taken my math teacher hours! She is very nice, knows what she is doing, and she is a great tutor!!

PoShan was an amazing tutor. She was always on time, and very easy to get into contact with. Any time I sent her an email, she would send one immediately right back. As far as tutoring, she really knew her stuff. We both came up with plans for the lessons, so that it was really tailored to my specific SAT needs, and showed that she was really listening to my concerns. I ask a lot of questions, and she wasn't ever bothered to answer them, even if they were pretty obvious. If I didn't understand something, she could tell without me having to say it, and would come up with an alternate explanation so that I actually learned the material and not just the surface of it. My time with her was well spent, and I would recommend her to anyone.
"Complete Turnaround with PoShan"
John from Woodbridge, VA on 4/10/13
My daughter was struggling with Pre-Calculus and then we found PoShan. Since my daughter starting meeting with PoShan, she has received A's on her last two quizzes and is expecting another A on a recent quiz. PoShan covers the material a manner that's easy to understand and now my daughter is very confident. My daughter now enjoys Pre-Calculus and looks forward to sessions with PoShan. I wish we had found her sooner and we will definitely use her services in the future. WELL WORTH THE INVESTMENT!
"Patient and nice."
Sabiha from Fairfax, VA on 4/9/13
She came very prepared and early to our tutoring appointment. Was very easy to get along with. Helped me understand some of the concepts in precalculus, trig, and limits. Overall, I have clearer understanding of these topics.
Luisa from Springfield, VA on 3/18/13
PoShan did a great job with my student. She was very pleased and enjoyed the session. My daughter said she liked that PoShan actually answered her questions without confusing her even more. She is excited and is looking forward to meeting with her again before her next unit test.
"Another great lesson with PoShan..."
Paula from Woodbridge, VA on 3/8/13
PoShan has helped keep my child near the top of her extended math class. My child feels much more confident by the end of each session with PoShan. She is very patient and kind. PoShan always provides instruction in a way that my child can easily understand.
"PoShan was plenty of help!!!!"
Anseri from Springfield, VA on 2/7/13
I started the quarter off with a C and was having plenty of trouble with a triangle chapter in geometry. PoShan helped for three hours on a Monday, she talked in a way I could understand and explained the concepts perfectly to me, in a way that I can still remember. She was patient and we took our time. I took a test a couple of days after she helped me and scored an 86, which brought my grade up from a C, to a B. I will definitely ask her to help me again when I am having trouble with geometry.
"A tutor that got through!"
Natalie from Woodbridge, VA on 1/17/13
PoShan helped my daughter with her 8th grade math from the start of the session. We had no luck with our last tutor and my daughter had already given up and accepted that she was going to just get by. The interaction between the two was wonderful. My daughter actually understood the work and was actually excited about math. She is looking forward to the next session. She actually requested an additional session prior to the weekly scheduled session in hopes to get a better understanding and to catch up/get ahead. What a relief!
Ian from Woodbridge, VA on 11/25/12
PoShan was a great tutor for our daughter. Our goal was to raise her score on the math portion of the SAT. PoShan was very patient with her, evaluating her strengths and areas needing improvement, then concentrating on the areas where work was needed. PoShan was very positive and encouraging and developed a good rapport. The result was an 80 point increase in our daughter's SAT score in math.
"Prompt responses. Excellent SAT assessment/plan."
Kevin from Lorton, VA on 9/26/12
PoShan was very responsive to emails. Her initial assessment for a plan to improve our son's math SAT score was very helpful. Very professional!
"Excellent Physics and Math tutor"
Joel from Fairfax Station, VA on 9/11/12
PoShan has been instrumental in improving my child's SAT math grades. She patiently takes the time to explain a subject matter and reinforces it through practice tests. She has also been a tremendous help in my child's Physics subject last year. This year, I plan on getting PoShan to help in the AP Calculus subject.
Leroy from Woodbridge, VA on 8/27/12
PoShan started the session going over known algebra concepts before proceeding onto the geometry lesson. Very patient and knowledgeable. Looking forward to follow up sessions.
Kaitlin from Alexandria, VA on 8/10/12
I have had several sessions with Po Shan and I have a few more scheduled. She is very flexible and is always willing to work around my unpredictable work schedule. She is friendly, encouraging, and gives positive and constructive feedback. I am meeting with her to get help with passing the Praxis 1 math exam. After several sessions I feel much more prepared for the exam. I would definitely refer and recommend Po Shan, she is great! I am very happy with my choice to work with her.
Danielle from Lorton, VA on 7/21/12
Very smart and patient! She has a natural ability to teach. She was available within 24 hours and contacted me right away. I don't know how she did it but within 2 sessions his grade has improved! He had a test at school and got a B, which is amazing. Highly recommend!!!
"Excellent tutoring session"
James from Dumfries, VA on 7/12/12
After the tutoring session I really felt as though I received a better understanding of the math problems. The examples were clear and very much to the point.
"Amazing Teacher, Extremely Responsive"
RAQUEL from Woodbridge, VA on 4/19/12
Po-Shan's ability to teach and express her methods is astonishing. Her skills and knowledge of Algebra were articulated with such calmness. My daughters expressions at the end of the session were priceless. You could see they understood the subject with such ease. They are looking forward to working with Po-Shan on the next tutoring session. She was punctual, prepared and kind.
PoShan replied on 4/20/2012:
Thank you so much for your kind review! I had a great time working with your daugthers. It was my pleasure :).
