I knew I would need a lot of help to improve my placement level, so I began searching for a tutor. Rebecca is the most amazing tutor I have ever had! She explains mathematical concepts so that they are easy to understand and memorize. After only a few months of being tutored by Rebecca, I retook the test and this time I placed into intermediate algebra! Instead of taking four math courses, I now only need to take two.
Mr. C tutored my son in pre-algebra. Each week Mr. C was punctual for our sessions. He provided my son with practical, planned, and appropriate assignments to support his learning needs in preparation for the SOLs. Mr. C also shared with my son web based tools that will help him with pre-algebra as well as subsequent math courses. Overall, it was truly an awesome experience for my son. He really enjoyed the sessions.
He basically gave up. I talked to the teacher's, the counselors, the vice principal, and had gotten nowhere. My intelligent son was now facing summer school, so I decided I'd try anything else I could to help him. And then I found Steve. A God send!!! He has taken my boy from defeated, and given up, to understanding all concepts, and reasoning behind Algebra, Science, even Language Arts, due to this excellent, patient, proactive, thought provoking, as well as kind tutoring.
