Terrific, friendly, professional yet warm & encouraging!

Avi is truly amazing. His patience is stellar, his knowledge thorough, his approach motivating -- moreover he commanded the respect of my son who is an excellent student but was allergic to standardized test-prep. Avi made my son's progress to a very good test score not just painless but also FUN. Moreover, Avi and my son worked successfully together both in person during our Winter Break and then via Skype after we returned to England, further highlighting Avi's tremendous adaptability. Forever grateful! Thank you!

Happy Algebra student!

I am an "A" student but I was struggling in Honors Algebra. It didn't make sense to me. After studying A LOT for a couple of quizzes but getting low grades, my mom found Avi to help. Avi has explained Algebra to me so I am not just trying to memorize formulas. I see why I am doing the problems and how to check my answers. I have gotten an "A+" on my last three tests and it's nice understanding what I am doing! Thanks Avi!

Excellent math Tutor!

Avi has been working with my 13 year old son over the summer and has greatly improved his understanding of the subject. Avi is very knowledgeable, patient and sensitive. This has enabled my son to increase his skills tremendously and build his confidence in the subject. Avi is an experienced teacher which allowed him to quickly hone in on my son's weaknesses. He has been very easy to schedule with and has been very sensitive to my son's emotional needs. I highly recommend Avi without reservation to anybody who is looking for a top notch tutor for their child.
