Great Tutor
Seriously great tutor, helped me through calc 2. Always willing to expand on and explain any concept that I needed help on and also managed to make calc more enjoyable and grounded than most other teachers I've had. I doubt I would have been able to pass calc 2 with the grade I did without his help.

Patient, friendly tutor with expert knowledge
We worked on homework for our honors precalculus course. This is an extra-challenging course that goes beyond typical precalculus material and topics; homework is rigorous! Tohoru was really knows the subject, but he is also patient and easy to relate to. We got a lot done in a relaxed, stress-free way.

Excellent ! Personable and Patient
First session with my son tutoring him in calculus went very well. Very warm, patient, and knowledgeable! We will have him come again in a few days. Lots of material to review! Recommend highly.

Deliberate and amazing!
We do not have enough accolades to praise the professional guidance and care Tohoro gave to our son this past year. He is a quiet math powerhouse with a special gift of guiding his students to a clear understanding. He helped bridge thenchallenge of the basic calculations to the more thoughtful theorems in AP Calculus AB. Leaving the class with a 98 and a strong positive feeling about his AP score has given our son and our family every reason to book Tohoro for next year’s AP Calculus BC class knowing we are in the best of hands. We have given out his name to others with the same positive results. He is the best.

Helping with AP Chem
Tohoru us a patient tutor with clear explanations. We've only had a couple of sessions with Tohoru so far, but my daughter gives him high marks and says his tutoring has been helpful. We're looking forward to more sessions and would definitely recommend him.

Wonderful and patient!
Tohoru has been working with my son for several months. He's terrific! He's helped my son understand math concepts and feel more confident. I would recommend him highly without any reservation.

Extremely Knowledgeable
We were extremely lucky to find Tohoru in the middle of the school year when my son was having some struggles in his Honors Algebra 2 class. Although he was a straight-A student most of the first semester, the concepts became more challenging and broke my son's confidence. Then Tohoru swooped in like some kind of super hero armed with conceptualization, short cuts, thorough explanations, and organizationI tools. He not only helped raise my son's slipping B grade back up to an A on his final report card, but he also helped to restore his confidence. I plan on scheduling some sessions over the summer just to review old concepts and to introduce him to Pre-calculus. My son says he's awesome!!

An extraordinary teacher and person
Though we've only had one session with Tohoru, my son said he got more out of one hour with him than all his other math tutors combined over two years. He's excited to work with him on college test prep.

Incredibly helpful.
Tohoru's teaching helped our son get through Geometry! We are looking forward to working with him again next year for Algebra 2. Thank you.

Great tutor and always helpful!
Thank you so much for an amazing year! Tohoru tutored my daughter in Algebra 2 and Chemistry and her grades improved drastically over the course of tutoring. He is always very patient and fun, and my daughter enjoyed being tutored, even in subjects that were not her favorite. He is very good at returning emails and phone calls and always makes time before a test or final for some extra tutoring. We will definitely continue having Tohoru as a tutor for the rest of her math classes, as well as help on SAT math. Thank you again!
