My son has had 3 sessions with Alexis and his math grade has already improved! I've received two emails from his teachers stating they've noticed improvement in how he's working through the problems. My son says he really appreciates her patience and she shows him how math doesn't have to be so hard if you just follow the steps on every problem. She's also helping him get organized, which is a definite improvement!
My daughter has seen Alexis a few times now and has learned so many things. Alexis really knows how to identify how a child learns and adapts to their style. I feel very confident that my daughter is getting the highest quality of tutoring and really learning valuable lessons.
I feel truly blessed to have found Alexis for my son! Just in an hour she has boosted his confidence. Can't wait to see what more she has to offer!
Very nice and helpful. Willing to go the extra mile. Thanks Alexis for helping my daughter pass her finals for graduation.
Alexis has been working with my boys on Geometry and Algebra 2 this year and they have made considerable progress. She has helped them with organization and problem solving skills that will serve them throughout their future. We will continue to call on Alexis over the summer and next year. Thanks Alexis!!
Alexis was extremely patient and understanding with my daughter. My daughter enjoyed learning new techniques with Alexis and we will be using her next school year.
My daughter attends online high school and Alexis makes sure she is on schedule and helps with ALL her subjects! We couldn't do it without Alexis.
In most cases, tutors gain approval in a subject by passing a proficiency exam. For some subject areas, like music and art, tutors submit written requests to demonstrate their proficiency to potential students. If a tutor is interested but not yet approved in a subject, the subject will appear in non-bold font. Tutors need to be approved in a subject prior to beginning lessons.
