Excellent Tutor
Herb was patient and very knowledgeable. He helped to break down complex mathematical concepts into more comprehensive steps. Highly recommend this tutor.

Dedicated to the student's needs
Herb is a remarkable man. It would be one thing to say that he is knowledgeable about his topic, and this is undoubtedly true, but it's another to try and explain the sincerity and caring he puts in to truly trying to make sure his student is learning. It is clear Herb puts a great deal of importance on his student's growth.

Very effective tutor
His math skills are excellent. He explained in detail how to integrate and take the derivative of complex trig functions as well as the concepts associated with cylindrical and spherical coordinates in a manner easy to grasp and retain.

Fantastic Tutor!
Herb tutored my daughter, a college student, in statistics and was extremely helpful. Herb was always responsive to emails, phone calls and flexible with tutoring times. He made statistics much easier for my daughter to understand. I would use Herb again without hesitation and highly recommend his services.

Herb was great.
My 13 year old son was struggling with 8th grade pre algebra. Herb quickly had my son thinking through and solving algebraic equations, now in a high school math and engineering program it has been noted by his new teachers that the extra work with Herb K. has paid off, thanks!
