Tutoring improves learning

My son (7th grade) has worked with Andrew twice a week since the beginning of October. We reached out to Andrew when the score of his second math test was 37%. With consistent tutoring twice a week, working through problems supplied by the teacher and by Andrew, and with Andrew’s patient explanations, my son’s most recent math test score was a 96%. We believe that setting aside two hours per week of dedicated study time under the guidance of Andrew has improved his understanding and skills in math and his confidence. Our family recommends Andrew if you are looking for a tutor for your middle grade student.
