I highly recommend Charles!!! He is a great teacher!! Charles is very enthusiastic and very knowledgeable. He has been a key component for me in preparation of my exam. Again I highly recommend Charles he is a phenomenal teacher!
I worked with Charles during the first semester of my graduate studies to fortify my math skills in Advanced Algebra, Derivative Calculus, and Stats. I found that his teaching method provided applied knowledge in addition to text book and this in turn made the work easier to digest and learn. Having his guidance provided much greater confidence and increased the quality of my work as well as the efficiency with which I completed it. My final grade in the class was a 98.
Charles helped me to feel confident about what I already knew and taught me strategies to tackle the more challenging math.
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.
