Success stories

Real stories from real people

Since 2005, Wyzant has provided a way for people to learn any subject in a way that works for them.

Sirbrina R.

6 Philosophy lessons

When I told Parvinder this he made sure that with every review we went over, I had a visual picture in my mind to comprehend the Philosophy theory. No matter how many questions I continued to ask one behind another; he was a very patient person with kinds words every time. Parvinder, such the genius as he is, was able to teach this old dog some new tricks in a visual way of understanding Philosophy. Parvinder truly has a passion and love for Philosophy.
Sarah S.

7 Philosophy lessons

Ray was foundational to my success in both of my Philosophy classes (received 4.0), as he broke down each major concept into absorbable bite-sized pieces of information that I could readily absorb. I have worked with many tutors, but none with whom I've stayed a client for such a long duration. Raymond is insightful, caring, humble, and evidently passionate about Philosophy. He is unique in his ability to transform boring Philosophical texts into animate conversations on their relevance.
Mona B.

3 Philosophy lessons

Ryan helped me SO much with my philosophy class this quarter. He helped me break down concepts, outline my papers, and helped me understand all the difficult philosophy arguments for my final exam!!! (which is amazing because I do not know anything about philosophy...). I highly, highly, HIGHLY, recommend Ryan!!! He is so knowledgeable and he really tries to help you understand by breaking down the information to you in such an easy and simple form. Again, amazing experience!!!
