This is untrue. Please read other feedback from the students that I have had over the last two years. This student did not know what they were doing and misrepresented himself when he contacted me. He was not looking for a tutor but a test taker. I was very generous with the time I spent with the student. He could not handle that he had to pay for the sessions.
