Affordable and knowledgeable

I had 7 sessions with Herbert, an hour and a half each session. I received tutoring for the Math Praxis exam. I needed help with all areas of the test (geometry, numbers and quantities, algebra functions, and statistics and probability) Herbert was able to help me on all of the subjects. Before, my tutoring sessions with Herbert I was running out of time on the test and missing many questions. Herbert showed me ways to solve the problems so that I could finish the test on time and showed me step-by-step how to solve each problem. We met up at the library, so Herbert also helped me look for books that pertained to the praxis. Herbert was really kind and patient, I highly recommend him.

Beverly, 5 lessons with Herbert

Patient and Kind Math and Physics Tutor

Herbert helped my junior and 7th grader with algebra and math review. He was patient, kind, knowledgeable and timely. He spent time going over project skills and reviewing for state mandated testing as well as SAT and ACT practice.

April, 50 lessons with Herbert

Excellent.

5. Herbert is knowledgeable and a good teacher for the SAT prep for my daughter. Thanks for the help. I will use Herbert again to tutor my daughter. I will be contacting Herbert to continue the tutor sessions since my daughter needs help to review for the upcoming SAT test.

Cliff, 1 lesson with Herbert

He explains the math clearly and effectively

Herbert is proficient in all the types of math presented in the praxis book. He began teaching me the algebra and geometry and the word problems in praxis and I am beginning to understand it much better after only one hour. I'm really glad I got him! He is very patient and knowledgeable. Thanks!

Sal, 7 lessons with Herbert

Great

Herbert is always on time. He gets right to the subject at hand and I believe my daughters grade in Pre Calculus is getting higher.
