Excellent Tutor

Sara is a very patient person considering we have to go back to basics. Sara has a good sense of humor, which is important to me, and recognizes when I don't quite understand the problem. She will persist to explain it until she is sure, that I am sure, that I understand how we have reached the result to the problem. She is a good teacher and I look forward to my classes. Thanks.

Patient and always on time

Ms. Sara is always patient. She consults with me constantly to make sure everything is up to my expectations. She brings in new materials to keep the sessions interesting and we have seen an improvement in our son's school work since she began.
