Thank you for the feedback. It was a pleasure tutoring your son. He worked hard and was coming up with some of his own ideas for remembering the material. The links I sent you will help him practice the material.

"Awesome!"

First lesson went very well. Kind and easy going with assessment and helpful hints. Assured her that trying is what's important and mistakes are ok and expected. Looking forward to the next session.
