Patient and very knowledgeable

Great with explaining topics in a way you would understand them. I will definitely be using Celia in the future. I was having such a hard time with studying for organic chemistry and understanding the topics I needed for organic chemistry and she has helped me tremendously. I would recommend Celia for any tutoring you may need.

Excellent tutor!

Excellent tutor! Catching my daughter up to where she needs to be after falling behind in chemistry. Other tutors knew their material but couldn't communicate it well. Celia is good at communicating, making sure my daughter understands, and helping her know how to study.

Saved My Grade

Celia was a fantastic tutor. She never made me feel uncomfortable for not knowing something and with her help I got the grade I needed in my Organic Chemistry class at university. I really believe that without Celia's help I would have had to retake this class. Thank you so much!
