Our son was struggling in 5th grade math. He would "shut down" and give up before he even started. Mary Ann was able to get him through his work and built his confidence with math games. He wasn't always outwardly responsive during the sessions and she was very patient with him and gave him breaks when he needed it. By the end of 5th grade he went from all 2's in math to 3's and a 4 in Geometry! He couldn't have done it without Mary Ann's help.
Chris is a seasoned and knowledgeable professor who is astute in recognizing where your child's interests are and how to bridge those interests into the amazing world of mathematics. He is patient, fun, encouraging and strict all at the right times. He is able to quickly evaluate and identify any deficits or problems and give the student and their parents the direction and the road map to successfully correct those deficits.
After just a couple of sessions, you can see that my daughter is already very comfortable with Angelo. She is actually getting less shy about speaking the language and getting more and more confident about it. I know it's been fun for her too and she has come to look forward to his sessions! Angelo is always prompt, communicative, respectful, and amiable. I'm very happy with my choice of Angelo and would definitely recommend him! I'm also hoping to hire him for next year's school year.
