Knowledgeable

According to my daughter he made statistics make sense, she is more confident. Overwhelming thanks to Guy. We will be meeting again as she was comfortable and the public meet place was close to home.

Sonia, 1 lesson with Guy

Very flexible with days and hours, great job at understanding teacher material

Helped with the chapter 2 test, help me get a better understanding of pre calculus than I thought I could. And helped me understand the teacher's method or another method.

Terrific Tutor

Guy did a wonderful job tutoring my son in algebra 1. He brought a thorough understanding of the subject, a seasoned educator's teaching skills, and a respectful approach to their meetings once a week. My son has grown in his understanding of the math. He has looked forward to the tutoring sessions each week, and we are seeing the results in his classroom performance. I highly recommend Guy.

Great Tutor!

Guy helped me to prepare for the math sections of my GREs and was absolutely the best person to work with! He was patient, kind, and a great strategist. I had not taken a math class in over 10 years when we started working together and had an extremely limited amount of time to brush up before the test. He was very responsive in terms of scheduling and was very flexible (even willing to work with me on Sundays!). Guy took me through all the basics of Algebra, Geometry, and other math concepts that he knew would be covered by the GREs, which was fantastic for me because there were very few that I actually remembered from high school. I felt 100% more confident after working with Guy even just for a short time and I am positive my scores were improved because of his tutoring. I would absolutely recommend Guy to anyone in the area struggling with math - whether you're a high school student or college graduate. I can't stress enough he is the best!!

Emily , 2 lessons with Guy

Very patient, reliable, responds within 24 hrs, Would definitely recommend!

Guy tutored my son and helped him get through a college level online statistics course. He was reliable and always on time. He also has great communication skills and that is an important attribute in teaching and learning. I would definitely recommend Guy.

Kathy, 7 lessons with Guy

Professional

Guy tutored my daughter in S.A.T. math and her score increased by 60 points. Guy was very professional and on time. I wouldn't hesitate to call Guy again if my daughter needed a tutor.
