Extremely Helpful!

I’m in BIOL 1001 and my professor goes through slides at lightening speed. Tobi is magnificent at breaking down the slides and simplifying them which helps me understand what’s going on in the course and better my understanding greatly. She’s super nice and is not intimidating at all, she asks if you have questions. Overall, very good tutor I’m benefiting greatly from her assistance :)

Knowledgeable and Helpful Tutor

Tobi has done 1 tutoring session with my daughter who is a sophomore in college. She started lesson yesterday with Tobi. She said Tobi explained her each topic and afterwards made sure she understood it. Tobi has also provided her with extra practice materials. She is calm and a patient tutor. Hope to continue with her.

Knowledgeable and Insightful tutor

Tobi is able to break down concepts in a way that students understand. She is also good at probing students to impart the information that they understand and then apply it.

Excellent tutor! 100% Recommend!

Tobi helped me catch up on the topics I was previously confused with. She does an amazing job breaking scary-looking concepts down into smaller chunks. After one class, I was able to understand the topics I was super confused with prior. She is really patient, very easy to talk to, and super friendly! I am definitely going to study with her in the future!

Patient and engaged tutor

Tobi was very patient helping me through my biology notes! She gave me simple adjustments to correct my thinking and made the information so much clearer for me!

Benjamin, 9 lessons with Tobi

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!
