First, I want to say that Randall is a very pleasant, professional young man. He went way beyond the call of duty to help me with my computer issues. I am not computer savvy and he was very patient with me and I was able to comprehend what he was teaching me. I got the help that I needed and more. I told Randall he's a genius when it comes to editing video and audio. He helped my voice and video sound and look very professional. I will definitely use Randall's services again!
Randy has been working with my son on Algebra I for a couple of weeks and he is a wonderful tutor. My son feels very comfortable with him and is feeling much more positive about math already. I can see the concepts clicking and appreciate Randy's ability to boost my son's confidence in a subject that he finds intimidating.
Randy has only worked with our son twice tutoring Algebra but has already made an unbelievable difference. Our son was immediately comfortable working with Randy. I would highly recommend him!
Randy is an amazing tutor. He is always so positive, upbeat and helpful. My daughter is super shy, and he always finds a way to get her to open up during her guitar lessons. She has learned great songs, but more than that, she has gained confidence because Randy always makes her feel like she's the best, even when she makes mistakes. He just has this way of making her feel like she can play anything! We have also started using Randy as a math tutor, and his positive outlook on life makes all the difference. He is always very prompt in returning texts/phone calls, and is flexible and professional.
Randy was very good at explaining math to my son. He also helped him write a paper. My son felt like he explained the subject well.
Randy was such a good tutor! Very patient and knowledgeable about the subject even though he hasn't done this in 6 years! I am looking forward to my tutoring sessions with Randy, I have already walked away with some good tips! Thanks Randy your the man!
Another successful session learning programs. Randy was awesome!! He really knows how to communicate effectively and navigates throughout the teaching process like a real pro.
In most cases, tutors gain approval in a subject by passing a proficiency exam. For some subject areas, like music and art, tutors submit written requests to demonstrate their proficiency to potential students. If a tutor is interested but not yet approved in a subject, the subject will appear in non-bold font. Tutors need to be approved in a subject prior to beginning lessons.
