Today was our first lesson Carlos, he showed great patience with my 4 year old. Kept him focused, I look forward to working with Carlos more and watching my son excel in Math.
My son told me that Carlos took his time and explained to him how to solve the math problems easily. My son told me he really liked his tutoring session.
Carlos is extremely patient, knowledgeable, and thorough. He has provided my son with a simplistic explanation for solving algebraic equations; which resulted in my son receiving a 96 on his test after his first session. He’s also very accommodating, and flexible. I highly recommend Carlos S.
In most cases, tutors gain approval in a subject by passing a proficiency exam. For some subject areas, like music and art, tutors submit written requests to demonstrate their proficiency to potential students. If a tutor is interested but not yet approved in a subject, the subject will appear in non-bold font. Tutors need to be approved in a subject prior to beginning lessons.
