Absolutely outstanding!

I've been working with Tobi for over half a semester now, and she is absolutely phenomenal. She's patient, explains things thoroughly, and takes the time to know how you learn and how your professor(s) teach. She even looks ahead on what you're learning so she can best tutor you during your session instead of trying to figure it out as you go along. I couldn't recommend Tobi more. If you need a tutor for Microbiology, Anatomy and Physiology, or any of the subjects she tutors, stop searching. You won't regret learning with Tobi! I've never used a tutor before, but I will be working with Tobi as long as I can as I work through nursing school!

Tobi is a wonderful biology teacher

Tobi has been wonderful to my son. She takes time to explain concepts in the way that kids can understand them easily. My son really enjoys all her classes and her presents, and I can see his interest in biology has reflected to his school grades greatly. Tobi is A+!!

An effective tutor

My daughter was very behind in AP Bio. After a few lessons with Tobi, she was very much caught up and had confidence in her test. Tobi made it easy for her to understand the concepts that she had a hard time to comprehend before. Tobi's very pleasant to work with. Glad we found her.

Great tutor! Very knowledgeable.

Tobi is tutoring me on immunology and molecular and cell biology. She's great at explaining things very clearly. She was very patient with questions and skipping around when necessary. Looking forward to my next session!

Guangxi, 13 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!

Haodan, 5 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.
