Patient, Understanding, Tutor

Jimmi has only worked with our daughter for a short time, however in that time our daughter has let us know that she enjoys working with Jimmi. She is patient and explains things to her in a way that she can understand. Jimmi helps her prioritize and organize so that she is confident and successful in her classes and subjects. She is also very flexible when we need it. We look forward to continuing our tutoring relationship with Jimmi!

What we've been looking for 😍

Our daughter has ADHD and we've been looking for a while for a well-rounded tutor that understands children like our daughter. Not easy to find mind you. Jimmi is the perfect fit! She helped our daughter with her math this time, but will be able to help her with all her subjects in the future! Thanks, Wyzant for introducing us! :-)

Michelle, 1 lesson with Jimmi

Knowledgeable and patient tutor.

I don't usually write feedbacks but Jimmi was amazing. English is my second language and she was able to explain every questions and if I didn't understand something she will give me example. I would totally tutor with her again and I recommend her.
