Very Knowledgeable, patient and makes the students feel comfortable.

I took tuition from Ms. Tobi in microbiology. Ms. Tobi was able to explain all my queries and add to my knowledge. Ms. Tobi was quick to pull out diagrams regarding the topic too for easy understanding. It was a smooth 1 hour of learning. I would definitely recommend Ms. Tobi. Thank you again, Ms. Tobi.

Amazing and knowledgeable tutor!

Tobi is such an amazing tutor! She helped me in a variety of areas in biology. I don’t think I could have made it through Introduction to Biology 1 and 2 without her! She’s extremely knowledgeable and is always willing to help. She provides extra pictures for you to further understand the concepts better and will quickly answer questions that you send to her by message. I would not want to go to anyone else for help in Biology!

Goes above and beyond

Toby worked with my daughter for a college level bio lab that had moved online during Covid-19. She was able to clearly fill in the gaps that the lectures lacked and help her understand the labs. She also responded to questions my daughter had outside her tutoring time. She increased her grade 20%-24% (waiting on one ambiguous question since the 1st exam). What a huge improvement!! Thanks Tobi!!!

Great teacher - patient, knowledgeable and organized

She is a great teacher- patient, knowledgeable and organized. Helped me with evolution, genetics, alleles etc. She was a good communicator and very helpful. She is smart and able to explain things well as well as help me organize.

Expert In Immunology

Tobi is very gifted in taking complex immunology concepts and making it easy to understand. We reviewed the pathophysiology of autoimmune diseases, and after 1 session, I was able to understand the mechanism of disease. I would highly recommend her!

Amazing!!

Tobi helped me so much! I wish I found her sooner. She is extremely knowledgeable and I will be definitely using her again in the future. It was my first time using an online tutor and I would actually recommend this over meeting someone in person.

Justina, 1 lesson with Tobi

Very knowledgeable, professional and friendly

Tobi taught High School Biology to both of my teenagers and they both looked forward to their class each week. Tobi initially came in person and then moved online. In both instances she was very punctual, and was always able to answer any questions my kids had. I thoroughly recommend Tobi.
