JJ C.

1 lesson

Then he taught me how to write an essay for the American History Regents exam. Since he said he was a math teacher, I randomly asked if he could help me with a trig problem at the end of the session and he said 'sure' and helped me with that too. Really impressed by how much he knows and such a fun guy to work with (great sense of humor btw). I think I learn more in a session with Nick than in 10 months of school. Recommend!

Daniel has been teaching my son for almost a half year. I don't know what the magic methods or strategies he used in his tutoring. My son's grades both in English and American History keep improving dramatically. Just recently he got "A" in his Term 3 English course. American history grade was greatly improved as well. Given my son's background and tough English and history classes, I never imagined he could ever achieve these.
Arwa A.

3 lessons

It was a joy to sit with Darrell while tutoring my son, grade 8. Since I know nothing about American history I have many questions to be asked which I find the answers with Darrell. Also Darrell is very generous. He typed us two essays he wrote about ideas we've discussed as extra information. Also he brought two extra books about history that made it easier for my son to read history. THANK you Darrell. You are on time. THANK YOU.
