Knowledgeable and patient tutor!
I would like to say thank you to my tutor Isidro! He was extremely patient and understanding. He made sure that I fully understood the key concepts and material before we moved forward onto other topics. If you are struggling in math or just need someone to review topics with you, he is the one! I would highly recommend Isidro!
Suzanne, 4 lessons with IsidroTutor responded:Thank you Suzanne for your kind words. Actually, I am the one that say thank you to you and here are the reasons why: The genius from Wyzant.com invented a category called:"New Instant book request." I was curious three days ago about this particular instant book, because I saw my favorite word in it"calculus". The time was specific at 11:30 AM. I decided to apply to that instant book because of the love that I have for this particular subject and then, it was you, that brought almost half of 100 problems as a review for incoming exam. I thought maybe she wants to review few problems for an hour and that it; but I was wrong, it was your determination, your goal to review every problem with detail, your curiosity and concentration were incredible; and I notice that were a fast learning and almost three hours plus later we concluded the calculus review with a sense that something was accomplished. I was lucky to have the opportunity to find student like you, hunger for knowledge, with desire to reach the goal for that day, you never stop asking the question"why?" and all of this happen thanks to a cross path of knowledge called Instant book and you never know what is in the other side and again, I found in the other side determination in you. If you continue that way, the sky is the "the limit". Hoping that all that you accomplished that day, with little help from me , pay off big time in your exam and in life.I hope that you will have the opportunity to help someone else with knowledge in the near future. With deep appreciation, Isidro L. Math Teacher.

Patient, knowledgeable with a sense of humor that makes algebra 2 more bearable.
Isidro not only went over how to solve the problems, but was methodically asking about the thought process as he helped with my assignment. He was patient and thought me a few tricks to use my graphing calculator better. I would definitely be back to tap into his knowledge.
Lamiaa, 1 lesson with IsidroTutor responded:Thank you Lamaiaa for your kind words, and thank you to instant book for sending the information requested by your mom , that you need help with Algebra 2. It was fun because your algebra skills were remarkable, your quick thinking and process of the problems that we completed together makes a lot of difference in a good lesson and "just complete the problems". My intentions are always to make sure that my students, not only, get the concepts but will be able to apply in problem solving situations. Your listening skills were extraordinary for a young teenager that want to learn math. You observe the process with a details and when I ask questions, you were able explain me back using math vocabulary. I am so thankful every single time when I found student like you that really want to re-learn the topic, it makes my job much easier and rewarding when we have the opportunity to help someone. You can apply that knowledge that you acquired that day with me to help someone else, you can also make a difference. Keep reaching for the stars !! With deep appreciation, Isidro L. Math Teacher.

BY FAR THE BEST TUTOR EVER
First of all I have to say that Isidro is the best tutor my daughter has ever had. Isidro is extremely knowledgeable and fun. My daughter was in need of a tutor for precalculus and Isidro was able to explain and answer every question that my daughter had. Isidro taught my daughter the entire unit in only one hour and a half. I will highly recommend Isidro. BEST OF THE BEST!
Karina, 5 lessons with IsidroTutor responded:Thank you so much Karina for the remarks about lesson and the strategy that I used to work effectively with your daughter before her test. It takes two components to make a great lesson to work, the student desire to learn, that is what saw in your daughter since the beginning of the lesson, her extraordinary pause and patience during the learning process and the ability to remain focus and determine to learn the material and with the high hopes that she will apply that knowledge to her assessment. I have noticed her math vocabulary and knowledge of the topics were very high, she just needs some clarification in the meaning of context for the polynomial functions and their graphs. I was amazed of her attention span for more than one hour. She is a fast learner, quick thinker and very bright. Without her determination and eager to accomplish her goal for that lesson, I don't even count. Let's continue working together to see the end result at the end of the semester, then we celebrate again!! The other part of the component is me, which I considered myself lucky to find extraordinary parents like you that have the courage to ask for educational math help for they children; and I just here in the other side of the web to provide that help in the most colorful and elegant way that I know, that is, teaching. With deep appreciation for the opportunity to serve you, Isidro L. Math Teacher
Great tutor
My tutor was very patient and broke everything down that even a 5 year old could understand. He was excellent, I will be using him again so I can be ready for my finals!!!
Matthew, 3 lessons with IsidroTutor responded:Thank you Matthew for feedback, I really appreciate it. What a coincidence that mention like a "5 years old could understand", I think the strategy that I used to go over your questions was based on your aptitude and the willingness to learn the material presented that day for Business Calculus class. As soon as I log in, I knew that you were ready before me; immediately I though he is ready for knowledge and it was true, your optimism toward your goal for that day was amazing, and you were a great participant in the lesson, by explaining the process back to me in a very detailed way. One take away from this lesson was your listening skills and your attention span during the entire lesson, and that makes a difference between I can learn something and I can teach something. Keep working in development more skills to be ready for finals. I am looking forward to help you in the near future, as long as you promise me that one day you are going to help someone else and treat that person like he/she was a 5 year old. With deep appreciation, Isidro L. Math Teacher
Isidro helped me a ton!
Isidro simplified everything for me in a way that I could understand. He was patient and worked with me when I was confused about something and then would figure out a way to explain it to me so I would understand it. Not only that, but he's got the jokes as well. Great tutor, definitely will go to him for help again.
Joe, 1 lesson with IsidroTutor responded:Thank you Joe for your great introduction and kind words, little that you know, that you help me too, with your curiosity and eager to learn new material .Thanks to the wonderful "instant booking " from Wyzant , I have the opportunity in just 30 minutes plus to help you with your questions in Precalculus and to bring a sense of confidence for the topics that were studying at that time. The first thing that I notice when accepting this instant lesson , was your responsibility , you show me that, by sending the requested material for the lesson right a way and the desire that you have to ask to help, one of most difficult thing to do sometimes for humans is to ask for help when they need it and you did. You also mention sense of humor during our lesson, it is funny that you mention that, because while everyone on the street that night (Halloween ) were eating candy, we were eating knowledge ,and this is when the desire and the responsibility to reach your goal takes place. This is the kind the student that you are,very responsible, quick learner and very curious about the topics that were studying for your college course.If you ever want to reach me, I will in the other side of the web, waiting for your questions.In the meantime ,I wish good luck in your class and in life. Remember to reach for the stars! With deep appreciation, Isidro L. Math Teacher
