Almost knows every detail about American history. Knowledgeable and generous.

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.

Exceptional tutor and he has the knowledge of the encyclopedia!

I hire Darrell for a history tutor for my daughter since June. At first session I was blown away by how much he knows the history. I could point out the world map and ask him the history of the country and he would know. He is very gentle and warm person and makes it fun for learning. I originally came from Japan and was surprised that Darrell knows real well about the Japanese history. It feels like that he has the knowledge of an encyclopedia of history. I would highly recommend Darrell for history and English tutor. He is excellent in what he does and I found it better than the rest. So I asked Darrell to teach English to my daughter from September.
