It is my job to make learning simple, effective and even fun at times. I will give you all the tools you need to understand the sciences and thus be on your way to pass all your classes. Excellent job on following the plan.

"Tutor was not helpful"

- Christoper, Hollywood, FL on 10/21/17
Yems replied on 11/9/2017

This student wanted physics with calculus help. I told him I teach physics without Calculus. He kept persisting that I help him. So finally he made an appointment and I told him I would help him based on what I teach. Every attempt to assist him was made. The student did not know the fundamental concepts yet he wanted fast answers on complex electrophysics problems, which made my work more difficult based on no fundamental concepts knowledge. I made the appointment to try to help the student and this is the result. Good learning lesson for the future.

"Great teacher"

I take advantage of the session to deliver the information needed to pass exams. I adjust to the student's learning process and never hurry this pace.

"don't listen to what is being asked to do"

- Karen, Miami, FL on 4/10/16
Yems replied on 4/11/2016

The student had a massive microbiology lab report to write with 28 different tests that had materials and methods to write about and explain the procedures. All this in 2 hours time is unrealistic and thus the student got frustrated when the work was not completed and quit and left. Next time, please be realistic about your objectives and the time it takes to finish them.

"Knowledge and patient! Excellent!"

- Courtney, Hollywood, FL on 2/9/16
Yems replied on 4/11/2016

You are not only an excellent student, but a great human being as well. Thank you for your hospitality during the tutorials. You come from a breed that just defines pure success. I will continue with great effort to assist you in your academic endeavors.

"Not Satisfied!"

- Maria, Hollywood, FL on 12/2/14
Yems replied on 12/3/2014

The student chose a rather noisy public location for the session and I did the best possible under circumstances. The session was from 1207pm to 220pm, which is 2 minutes shy of 2 hours and 15 minutes. At times sessions will go over the allotted time, especially if the student is having difficulties. If I would have stopped and walked out at exactly 2 hours, then there still would be a complaint. The student is making an issue over 2 minutes when it was told to her that she would be given 15 free minutes to compensate. I do not socialize with students at all before, during or after a session.

"Excellent Tutor"

- Rose mary, North Miami Beach, FL on 4/8/14
Yems replied on 4/11/2016

Thank you for your cooperation during the tutoring sessions. Your focused and concentration shows that you are serious about succeeding in taking and passing the ASVAB test. Count on me to take you over the edge to success!

"Does not listen"

- Nicholas, Hollywood, FL on 10/14/13
Yems replied on 11/14/2013

This student did not understand the basic concepts of geometry. It is my job to make sure a student understands simpler topics before moving on to more complicated scenarios. If this is not done, it spells disaster. Sometimes parents do not understand this learning concept.

"Professional and reliable."

- Kendall, Fort Lauderdale, FL on 6/20/13
Yems replied on 11/14/2013

If there is any additional assistance I can provide, count on me. Thanks!

Yems replied on 12/21/2012

Thank you. You are a set example on how students are supposed to be. Always on time, flexible, eager to learn, cooperative, serious about school. Keep up the good work and you will exceed.

"Do Not Use Be Warned"

- Deborah, Fort Lauderdale, FL on 12/17/12
Yems replied on 12/19/2012

This student never spoke to me over the phone or met me in person. Communication was by text. She did not return phone calls, text me at 130am to make an appointment and then cancelled at the last minute. I have a policy and do follow it to the letter.

"Awful experience! Do not recommend!"

- Veronica, Hollywood, FL on 11/17/12
Yems replied on 12/19/2012

The appointment was at Miramar town center. Its a very popular, centric location. There's a public library, a gym, stores, restaurants and Broward transit. Address and directions were given. Student said she knew the place. Not my fault if she was at the wrong place. I waited 30 minutes. I cannot wait indefinitely until a student decides to show up. If you are a person that is on time to your appointments and know your whereabouts, this will not be an issue.

"Disappointed & Uncomfortable"

- Jessica, Fort Lauderdale, FL on 10/2/12
Yems replied on 12/19/2012

I totally disagree with this student.
First, I was 30 min late due to the extreme traffic and train delay. She was advised that I was going to be late and she said ok.

Second, I do not record my sessions. There is no purpose for this. I was charging my cell.

Third, students are supposed to keep track of the time during the session.

Fourth, my cell did ring, but it was ignored.

I treat my sessions very serious, there is no waste of time or side notes. I believe this students needs alot of help with or without me. The fundamentals were given to her. At times sessions go over the allotted time to finish a concept, especially if the student does not know the material.

Every possible accommodation was given to this student.

I have taught over 1000 hrs and have had great success.

Exceptional teacher

Returning to study after many years out of school, I needed help with my chemistry class. Yems not only is very knowledgeable in chemistry but has the gift of being able to teach. Many tutors are very knowledgeable but few have the ability of Yems to brake down concepts in a simple manner very easy to understand. My chemistry teacher makes the subject very complicated and difficult to understand.
