Great tutor!

Carol is a great help! She definitely helps me understand the content fully and in depth to be successful in college.

Alyssa, 3 lessons with Carol

Knowledgeable and kind

She helped me improve my scores by 6 points on each section!! Always asked about myself and my purpose for taking the GRE. She knew her stuff too, strongly recommend!!

Marian, 8 lessons with Carol

Knowledgeable and Patient

Carol interacted with my daughter on the subject matter very well. Although we only had one session with her, I could tell that my 14-year-old was much more confident on the subject matter she had problems with. We were satisfied and plan to have weekly sessions with Carol.

Sophia, 5 lessons with Carol

Great first lesson

So far so good. My daughter felt very comfortable with Carol and had a good feeling about going forward. I feel that this is a good way to get help for students.

Nicolette, 9 lessons with Carol

Amazing: caring and knowledgeable tutor

This was our first experience with Wyzant, and we cannot be happier. System is easy to use, and we truly lucked out with our ACT math tutor, Carol B. She is an amazing teacher, and my daughter - a very critical teenager - has learned so much. Carol helps with extra practice material too. Ten stars!

Magdalena, 2 lessons with Carol

Off to a great start

My daughter had her first session with Carol to prepare for the ACT. Carol helped my daughter set goals and set out a path to reach those goals. We are looking forward to working with Carol through this process.

Cathy, 11 lessons with Carol

Good first lesson

My daughter liked the thoughtful approach to understanding and strategies for answering questions within time. With the extra work she needs to put in, she could end up doing very well on the exam.

Irene, 6 lessons with Carol

Great Tutor for my Algebra I middle school student

Carol helped my son finish some Algebra I summer work. She is well-versed and was an excellent tutor for my middle school student. Thank you Carol.

Beatriz, 6 lessons with Carol

Wonderful lesson!

Mrs. B. helped me a lot and I was able to get my trigonometry homework assignment done much faster. She helped me understand the material.
