I was able to get through my first week of econ class successfully. Couldn't have done it without Bill. Bill used various methods to illustrate difficult concepts.
Bill tutored my son in high school Spanish. I plan on calling him for other subjects as well. He's prompt, nice, engaging and very smart.
Bill is great. So excellent. He was able to help me put my great ideas into words. He is a very talented writer. Couldn't thank him enough for his help.
With his help I was able to get into the University of California, Berkeley - my dream school.
Bill spent a little over 1 hour with my son. He helped devise a way for my son to study and create a method for organizing his studying. My son felt that Bill was smart and knowledgeable but also personable and relatable.
Explained the work to me in a way that was much easier for me to understand! Made learning fun! :)
Bill helped me with reviewing for my Economics Midterm along with reviewing the principles of Economics that helped me understand the material much more. I am going to be using Bill for the rest of the semester since he is so helpful!
We discussed my final paper and worked on an outline for a compare and contrast essay. Bill has helped me finish my paper with ease and understanding
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.
