Excellent tutor!

Tricia has been working with our grandson to prepare for the Asvab. She is awesome! She takes the time to learn what the student knows, then guide him on how to learn...study, prepare, organize, tips for retention of material, etc.

Beverly, 22 lessons with Patricia

My son was impressed

My son has been in a group class for 12 weeks for 4 hours at a time and was very discouraged at how little his test scores improved. After just his first class (only 1 hour!) with Patricia he said "she is really good at it". Thank you Patricia for building his confidence and giving him hope that he can still improve!

Excellent Tutor

Patricia helped prepare my very anxious daughter for the SAT. She was able to connect with my daughter and put her at ease about the test. They worked on improving her math and test taking skills. My daughter feels more confident about taking the SAT.

Jason, 2 lessons with Patricia

Excellent!

Excellent first lesson. Patricia took the time to get to know my daughter and her strengths and weaknesses. Looking forward to many more lessons!

Jodi, 9 lessons with Patricia

Helpful and Intersting Lessons

So far it has been math review for the SAT's and she has been accommodating and helpful with giving me tools and tricks to help understand and work through them efficiently.

Great tutor for everything including SAT

Patricia has been a fabulous tutor for our daughter during the summer before Senior year as an SAT prep tutor in all areas. Although prep is done, my daughter will continue to use Patricia throughout the year for math. Competent, reliable and a great teacher in all ways.

Lisa, 13 lessons with Patricia

My daughter loves her!

My daughter had a lot of trouble with Algebra last year. Tricia is really turning that around. My daughter looks forward to her tutoring sessions and is really starting to understand the concepts behind Algebra in a way other teachers have never been able to help her to do. Thanks, Tricia!

Excellent!!!!

I highly recommend Patrica!!! My daughter went to Patricia to help her with college Algebra. Math is the only class left before she gets her degree and it is tough for her. After one session, my daughter was able to complete math problems that she was unable to do prior to her tutoring session with Patricia. My daughter was diagnosed with a "math learning disability" in grade school. Throughout her school years, she was told she would never be able to complete college level math. This instilled math anxiety in my daughter so she thought she could not do the math. Patricia told my daughter that she did not believe in "disabilities" but rather saw it as a math "hurdle". Patrica was kind and considerate and did not make my daughter feel insecure about math. I will NEVER refer to my daughter's math "hurdle" as a learning disability again! This approach gave my daughter confidence and more importantly HOPE to get her degree! I would like to write to all of those teachers who told her she couldn't do it and tell them that even though math is a hurdle, she is DOING IT!!!! Thank you Patricia - when my daughter gets her degree, you can consider yourself as one of the special people in her life that helped her achieve her goal!!!! THANK YOU - from a very happy and proud mom!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Excellent tutor!

Patricia M is the sole reason why my daughter substantially raised her ASVAB scores. All lessons were exceptionally well planned, and the skills my daughter learned are assisting her in her other studies, in particular a math class and an advanced science class she is currently enrolled in at her high school. She has solid grades in each of the above classes, and I have zero doubt that Patricia M's tutoring is one reason why.
