Knowledgeable and informative!!!

Tobi taught my daughter biology principles she was having a hard time with. She brought great clarity to the topics! We look forward to another session with her!

Guangxi, 11 lessons with Tobi

Great!

My daughter is very satisfied with Tobi's lesson. She caught the weak point of my daughter's biology study immediately and came up with a strategy. My daughter said Tobi is really correct. Thank you!

Andrea, 4 lessons with Tobi

great session!!

Gave my daughter great tips on how to tackle and organize the vast amount of material being given to her in her college biology class. My daughter now feels that she has direction and a valuable resource to explain difficult concepts when needed. She looks forward to her next session with Tobi.

Insightful Advice on Environmental Science Project and Planning

Tobi is extremely helpful for providing guidance and a plan of action for science projects. She taught me task organization in the science context, and also how to analyze and incorporate specific figures, graphs, and maps to help tell a story on climate change and its relationship to ecology.

Great Tutor, very patient

Tobi reviewed photposynthesis with my son and helped him with his study guide. He really liked working with her and said it was a huge help. We would use her again.

Vinita, 2 lessons with Tobi

She is patient and thorough.

Dr. Tobi S. helped me to understand challenging concepts for Cellular and Molecular Biology. She also was willing to allow me to schedule a session with her on short notice. I truly appreciate her help.

Karen , 4 lessons with Tobi

Skilled tutor

She is a wonderful tutor. She has significant background in tutoring and subject material. She explains concepts well. We use the online method and find it to be quite good; no issues not being there in person. My daughter enjoys her sessions.

Errol, 5 lessons with Tobi

Knowledgeable and flexible tutor

Tobi makes the hardest concepts seem easy, even when they seem difficult. She's always very enthusiastic about teaching, and never shows signs of impatience. (Even when I ask her to repeat concepts a million times) I'd definitely recommend her to anyone looking to improve general knowledge, improve a class grade, or study for a test!
