## Very patient and competent tutor

Sherri, 7 lessons with UrsulaMy daughter has been working with Ursula for a few weeks, and two of the characteristics she’s most appreciated are Ursula’s command of the subject (Precalculus Algebra) and her ability to flex to meet the individual learner’s needs. She encourages my daughter to take an active role in her own learning by providing interactive study sessions, while also exhibiting patience when asked to readdress concepts. Her explanations are thorough and leave little room for confusion, and my daughter has...

Ursula has provided examples of their subject expertise by answering **8 questions** submitted by students on Wyzant’s Ask an Expert.

## Patient and flexible tutor

Ursula spent several months helping my daughter study for the SAT math sections. We worked with Ursula 1-2 hours a week and I noticed a remarkable improvement in my daughter's ability to approach and solve SAT math questions. We haven't gotten the SAT results back, but she came out of the test feeling confident that she had really improved her math score from her PSAT.

Mindy, 20 lessons with Ursula

## Great Calculus 1 & 2 Tutor!

Ursula is such a wonderful tutor! She’s very clear in her way of teaching, and makes calculus much easier to understand. I see a constant improvement of my understanding and my grades with each session. I’m very thankful for her help and patience, and would certainly recommend her as a tutor.

Ava, 36 lessons with Ursula

## Great ACT math prep

Ursula is helping our daughter develop a new approach to her ACT math test. She is very knowledgeable about the subject matter and test taking techniques. Highly recommend!

Ronald, 24 lessons with Ursula

## Very thoughtful and planned approach

My daughter hired her to help with GRE preparation and I was thrilled to see that she sent a test in advance of the first lesson. Many tutors don't offer diagnostic efforts in advance and that wastes valuable time.

Kim, 19 lessons with Ursula

## Patient, knowledgeable, and kind tutor!

Ursula is amazing! She is incredibly patient helps explain both problems that I get wrong and problems where I am using inefficient/slower methods to solve them! She is wonderful to work with!

Avery, 10 lessons with Ursula

## Review for pre cal tutoring

Mrs. Ursula does a great job of using virtual boards and showing me how to do problems. She responds very quickly when trying to schedule meetings and she is available most days. Great tutor, could not have gotten through pre cal without her.
