Knowledgeable and helpful

Tobi is helping my 11th grade daughter with her honors biology class . She's had two sessions so far and my daughter, who typically does not like to ask for help, wants to keep working with her. Tobi has been super helpful to keep my daughter on track and we plan to keep working with her.

Knowledgeable and Patient Tour

My daughter had one session with Tobi and really liked her style. Tobi explained things very well and also take just enough breaks in between so my daughter can write notes down and absorbs them. We plan to take more sessions with her.

Brilliant AP Biology Tutor

Tobi tutored my daughter throughout the year and in preparation for her AP Biology exam. She is truly an extraordinarily gifted teacher. She is able to explain difficult concepts clearly, simply, and concisely. She is extremely knowledgeable in the subject and knows the content of each chapter in the text through and through. My daughter would simply tell her what topics she wanted to go over and Tobi would swiftly cover all the relevant material. For those of you searching for an AP Biology tutor, there is no need to look further, Tobi is the best!

EXCELLENT! EXTREMELY KNOWLEDGEABLE, PROFESSIONAL & EXPERIENCED - GENETICS, PUNNETT SQUARES, PEDIGREES, EVOLUTION!

After working with 2 other 5-star tutors, I reached out to Tobi to help my 15-year old 9th-grade son who was struggling with his biology course - specifically in GENETICS. Tobi, wasting no time, got straight to work with him and worked for 3 hours (over 2 sessions) this past weekend helping him to understand Mendelian GENETICS concepts and to solve challenging PUNNETT SQUARES & PEDIGREES problems. She also thoroughly reviewed & clarified his class notes, HW assignments, and test review sheets on both evolution and genetics. Although my son was super tired by the end of a 2-hour session (too long for him), Tobi was patient and encouraged him to keep practicing after the session. After a nap, and with revived energy, he was able to correctly apply what Tobi taught him. I highly recommend and will continue working with Tobi She is an extremely impressive and thoroughly knowledgeable tutor in biology!

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.
