Wonderful tutor! Knows her math and knows how to teach it.
As the parent of a high school junior who was struggling with his second semester pre-calculus curriculum, I hired Paige through WyzAnt Tutoring Services. She was recommended to us by a friend, and I was impressed with her background and experience. My son’s performance in pre-calculus had dropped to a C average during his second semester and I was looking for some additional support to help him gain a more solid understanding of the concepts as well as to raise his grade. In a very short time, Paige was able to accomplish both of these goals. In eight tutoring sessions which spanned a total of six weeks, she worked diligently with him to boost his grade nine percentage points, ultimately earning him a B in the course. Thanks to Paige’s instruction, he earned a 94% or higher on his last three exams (including the final exam) which demonstrated his improved understanding of the curriculum. Paige’s subject knowledge, teaching experience, excellent communication skills, patience, and enthusiasm definitely contributed to my son’s success. During the six weeks that Paige worked with my son, she demonstrated a vigorous understanding of pre-calculus. She demystified complex concepts such as polar coordinates, vectors, and conics as well as reviewed fundamental trigonometric functions that were critical to his overall understanding of the course and ultimate success on the final exam. Having earned a B.A. in Applied Mathematics from UC Berkeley, I was impressed with not only her understanding of the subject matter, but her passion for math. This was evident in our conversations as well as in the tutoring summaries that she would provide after each lesson. But effective teaching requires much more than an understanding of the subject. Paige took the time to observe my son’s problem solving techniques, leading to a better understanding of how he learned and where he could make improvements. She would make meaningful connections between concepts, offer helpful tips and shortcuts, as well as encourage him to better organize his handwork. Paige demonstrated particular strengths in her ability to communicate clearly and effectively. Her patience and ability to simplify difficult concepts was instrumental in helping him to master the curriculum. Lastly, Paige’s enthusiasm and passion for math facilitated learning. As tutoring sessions were scheduled weekly on Friday afternoons after a long week of studying, I was impressed that Paige was able to keep him engaged and focused. Her easy-going manner and spirited personality definitely helped to strengthen the tutor-student relationship. Paige is a reliable, hardworking, and exceptional tutor who has demonstrated a broad range of skills while working with my high school junior. In six short weeks, she enabled my son to master difficult pre-calculus concepts, contributing not only to his success, but also to his self-confidence. Hence I enthusiastically recommend Paige.

Great Finite Tutor!
Paige helped me prepare for my finite exam at Georgia Tech and was so helpful! She explained all the concepts so that they were easily understood and was very patient! Even though it was an online tutoring session, Paige would often look at my expressions and make sure I looked liked I was understanding things and if I looked confused would go over the problem again!

Very Knowledgeable and caring, I told her she is the Mary Poppins of Math, only with combat boots, Paige is a 'JOY'
Paige has slowed down my anxiety and nervousness, now I can focus on the learning and not the falling or failing part, I have a new outlook on math and I love Math, the beauty of the mathematical "world of numbers and stuff" (to quote Paige), all the best.

Patient and encouraging tutor.
Paige is working really well with our son. He reports that she is good at explaining the geometry concepts, helps him organize his study tools and also holds him accountable for his work between sessions. She is caring and enthusiastic about the subject and comes across as genuinely caring about my sons learning, not just about passing tests.

Very knowledgeable!
Paige was on time and ready to tutor me with math subjects. Paige helped me get a better understanding of Set Operations and Venn Diagrams. Paige took her time to carefully explain each step and she even created examples to help me get the material. I would recommend Paige and I plan on using her in the future!

Saved My Grade
Paige is an awesome tutor and she saved my grade in my intense summer statistics class. In the class I was completely confused about the material. I was very comfortable with Paige with all of our sessions. We had two lessons every week so I could keep up with the class and so understand the homework. She is very flexible with my ADHD and she explained the material I didn’t understand and throughly explained it to me in a way I could understand. Without her I would have not passed this class. Thanks Paige!!!

Great tutor
We are happy to have found Paige. She gives my son good tips to follow in order to score well. I like that she gives him milestones to achieve each lesson which makes it easily measurable.

Excellent Tutor!!!
We hired Paige to help my daughter (10th grade) with Pre-Calculus. What a great find!! She quickly established a nice rapport with my daughter. She enjoys her tutoring lessons and is learning more from Paige than her math teacher. She has progressed very well. Paige shows her different ways a problem can be solved and encourages my daughter to work on her own. Paige is extremely reliable, very patient, communicates promptly, and is on time for every session!! We would give her our highest recommendation for anyone looking for a great tutor!
