Excellent Tutor

Jason is great. He has extensive knowledge in strategic management for test talking. I've been through a few tutors and Jason is by far the best!

Maryann, 3 lessons with Jason

Terrific asset!

Jason has been great with my sometimes unfocused, very chatty son. His tutoring has been the key to my son's considerably improved math grade. He's patient and provides tips and study methods that really make a difference. My son enjoys the sessions and has learned a great deal.

Great Tutor and quick response

Jason is a dynamic and very helpful tutor. He is very patient and always available to quickly respond to the calls and messages. My son really enjoyed lessons from Jason for his SSAT preparation. Among 3 different tutors, my son liked Jason the best for his honest opinions and advice on various things related to SSAT prep, private school applications and his essay writing. He would like to continue to take lessons from Jason for his SAT or any other high school subjects in future.

Saw immediate results

Jason helped my daughter with her Statistics course. She was struggling and after working with Jason she gained confidence and saw immediate results. Even her teacher is amazed with the improved test grades - worth every penny.

Knows Chemistry!!

Jason has been an immense help to my daughter. She had missed a few of the early concepts and had lost confidence. He has very patiently explained many of the basic chemistry concepts that she missed in her class. He knows the level of detail required for High School chemistry so is able to easily cover topics at an appropriate depth. He is able to tell her what things to just know and memorize vs what concepts to learn methods. While our immediate goal was to prepare for a mid-term, his patience and knowledge make him a good fit for keeping her up to speed with her class.

Calming and constructive

Jason is very mellow, which compliments my son. Jason seems to bring out my son's capabilities in a relaxed manner. My son doesn't like to be told what to do, so Jason's methods are a success while my son gets tutored without thinking it is an adult lecturing him.
