Excellent!

Steve is a wonderful tutor! I honestly can’t say enough about him. The lesson was taught in such a way that he made me feel at ease and made sure that I knew exactly what I was doing before the session was over! I will certainly be using him again!

Darla, 2 lessons with Steve

Fabulous teacher!!!

We are so happy we found Steve V. He tutored my daughter (junior in high school) in precalculus. He was very patient and broken the concepts down into easy, understandable steps. My daughter said he made learning the material fun! Thank you Mr. V!

MariaElena, 12 lessons with Steve

Great tutor, you won't be disappointed!

Steve is very great at helping our high school student understand and getting him over the hurdles he has in homework; which, in turn, helps him get better grades on tests! he's got a very patient personality, and does a good job at keeping things light and encouraging students. Love this tutor!

Linda, 4 lessons with Steve

Awesome tutor!

Dr. V has been tutoring me for the past few months and he has been great! He is very patient, understanding, and knowledgeable. He takes the time out to ensure that you are understanding the material and if not he explains it differently.

Mark, 5 lessons with Steve

The best teacher -hands down

Steve is very caring, patient, reliable, and passionate about teaching. He took math concepts that seemed overwhelming to my daughter and broke them down with simplicity and ease. She felt confident after a 30 minute class with him.

Knowledgeable and easy to understand

Steve V. worked with my son who is a high school senior with stats and probability. My son liked how he explained and broke down the areas he had issues with. He was easy to understand and he said Steve looks like he is a cool teacher!

Amalia, 1 lesson with Steve

All around great Statistics tutor!

Steve is a great tutor! My son says that he is relatable and he makes the lessons fun and interactive, which keeps him interested and focused. My son came home from his first lesson and he had way more confidence about Statistics than he had all semester. We will be going back to Steve for our tutoring needs. Ty Steve!!
