Mr. P. was extremely professional, prompt, flexible and knowledgeable. His effectiveness in working with my 10th grader on Algebra 2 made an enormous difference with her confidence and grades. His teaching style was particularly effective and his patience and his creativity in his approach were a good match for my child. After meeting with her 4 times, she felt ready to go it alone for awhile since she was now able to master the concepts that had been causing her difficulty. However, we will definitely use his services again should the need arise.
And of particular note, not only was his schedule flexible and accommodating, he drove through an ice storm to make it to an evening appointment. Very dedicated!
Lance is a fantastic tutor. He is good at getting started quickly and effectively. He does not waste time or his pupil's energy; he is very to the point. He first figured out exactly what parts of Algebra II my son needed help with by observing him work math problems. Then they worked on those parts. They covered much material. He speaks clearly and directs the student's attention to the work at hand. I have never seen a tutor as effective as Lance. (My sons have had multiple tutors throughout the years.) He is positive and encouraging as well. Lance knows how to teach the subject of math in a clear, concise manner.
Excellent tutor, very professional and friendly, also has a lot of patience. It was a blessing to have found him. He is really helping my son.
It seems the first session went well. My grandson seemed to understand the process that Lance demonstrated for him. Look forward to the second session.
Very professional, and really outlines what steps need to be taken in order for his student to succeed. Builds a great relationship with student and understands how local school districts teach math, and where they are failing.
Lance has a working knowledge of mathematics and presents it in a format that I can easily grasp. He always leaves me with notes that I can refer back to as I am working on my own.
Thank you, Lance! I sat in on the last few minutes of the tutoring session and could tell that my son had an understanding of the concept, and more importantly, the process which is where he has struggled in the past. He had positive feedback regarding the tutoring session and felt more confident. We look forward to working with you.
Mr. P. was very professional, punctual, and prepared. He was very quickly able to identify my student's academic needs in a way that followed her high school teacher's lesson plan as well as show her other techniques in problem-solving. She feels more confident in her Pre-Calculus abilities and we hope to see an improvement in her grades. Also, hope to see him next week.
Lance is an excellent tutor for my daughter in 9th grade! When I found Lance, my daughter was struggling to understand geometry and had a C in the class. Lance is very patient and explains the fundamentals while he has her work through the problems. Lance takes an active role in my daughter's success and even calls us the day after the test to ask how she scored! Lance comes to my home once a week. If we need him more to prepare for a test, he always works with us to create time to work with my daughter. We finished the semester with a solid A! I highly recommend Lance as a tutor for anyone who needs extra help understanding math! We will continue to use him!
My tutoring with Mr. P. was great, I love his style of using all type of colors for putting step by step on every problem I had. I feel that I really improved with his tutoring. He was really patient and creative with me and personally that's how I learned the best.
Lance was extremely professional, prompt and a pleasure to meet! He was able to explain algebra to my son in a way that was very clear and easy for him to understand. We were extremely pleased with his service.
My daughter had her first session with Mr. P, we could see he confidence building as he went over each problem with her. As we move forward, I think this will be just what she needed.
Enjoyed this tutoring session with Lance. Lance was professional and creative in his approach. He was on-time and extremely patient.
I have always had a hard time with math and needed a tutor to make it through calculus. Mr. P. has been extremely helpful with going back and reviewing the basics in order to understand the topics in my calculus course. He is very patient and has a flexible schedule making it convenient to meet with him on a weekly basis. Thanks to him, I passed my first test!
Lance was extremely understanding of my situation and was very knowledgeable in statistics. Was able to pick up where I am currently at and assist with my needs.
Lance is an outstanding calculus tutor. To start the year out I was very overwhelmed and that's where he came in. He is able to break down problems into small, manageable chunks and explain them in terms that make sense. He is very patient and willing to walk you through all types of problems. He is also very dependable, arriving at exactly the time we set up. Over all, a 10 out of 10 isn't high enough, he is simply the best math tutor I have ever had.
Mr.P. is a great tutor and this was our first lesson I was immediately put at ease and felt more confident in obtaining my goal.
I was very skeptical about using a tutor. I have paid for two developmental math courses at my college and was not getting really good results. Lance is extremely patient, he has a good personality and can really break everything down as simple as is can get. I don't feel embarrassed to ask questions. I have met with him several times and plan on using him throughout my academic career. He has a quick response time to emails and phone calls. He is also reliable and dependable and makes every effort possible to accommodate your schedule. Come prepared because he will be ready to go as soon as you are.
My son has always struggled with math, and after repeated attempts had not been able to pass the TAKS, which meant he still had no diploma. Lance was able to break the problems down into more manageable chunks and gave my son the skills he needed to be able to tackle each problem. My son told me that Lance was able to explain things so that they made sense. Lance also worked with him on test taking strategies so he was not overwhelmed. He went into the test this time feeling confident and prepared, and this time he passed!
We found Lance to be professional, punctual, and did not have a problem getting several sessions scheduled in a short amount of time. Every tutoring session was focused and productive. I highly recommend Lance and we will be using his services again.
He has and continues to be a person of his word; you can depend on him. I am thankful for his support. He listens well and provides responses that are suitable and fits questions asked.
Thanks to Lance.
My son has some challenges and Lance has increased his confidence and his skill level! I am very pleased with my son's progress.
