Huge improvement

Linda has helped our daughter tremendously with Geometry. She has become more relaxed and confident in the class and enjoys Geometry now. We had 70%s on most tests, in 5 weeks our last test was a 94%. Will keep using Linda to keep the consistency and enjoyment of the Geometry going.

L. Susie, 38 lessons with Linda

Very personable

My daughter was skeptical at first of getting a tutor. Linda was able to make a connection with my daughter from the first lesson, and now my daughter waits in anticipation for her times with Linda. My daughter's grades and self esteem have both increased through Linda's efforts. While we are all looking forward for the summer, my daughter is already confident in tackling the next grade knowing that Linda will be there to help out. Great job Linda, we really appreciate all you have done.

Wonderful tutor.

Linda has been working with my niece for almost 6 months on Algebra and Geometry. She has not only worked with her on the math but on study strategies that will hopefully help her in other subjects. The sessions have made a huge difference in my niece's understanding of the subjects. She could not have passed without Linda.

Great experience, very pleasant, punctual, and fast responses

I set up our first session with Linda for this past weekend. This was my first time to use a tutor and I was hesitant to try, as was my 13 year old daughter. Linda is quite professional and very pleasant to deal with. She made the whole experience low stress and my daughter quickly asked for more sessions. Linda seemed quite comfortable working with a 13 year old girl and algebra. I have a hectic schedule running my business, and having the extra help is priceless. The Wyzant system is well organized and easy to use. Great tutor and great system! I'm impressed so far.

Dan, 2 lessons with Linda

Very patient and encouraging!

Linda has been a huge help in keeping me on track for taking the GRE. She has helped me overhaul my study materials, study plan, and way of thinking about math in general. She is incredibly patient while working through problems and concepts. I know that with her help my Quantitative score on the GRE is going to match my goals.
