I like that he made my son put the calculator away forcing him to rely on his own computation skills. Kaleb seemed very confident in his ability to work through similar algebraic equations in his upcoming assisgments.

He really takes pride in helping students understand not only the how (to do the thing), but also the why. If you look at the list of his teaching experience, you can see that he has taught many challenging classes at Cal Tech and Oxford (like Quantum Computation!), yet he can easily help my 11 year old who is struggling with 6th grade math understand the how and why too. He challenged me to try to solve some probability problems too, so learning with Michael can be a family affair!
She is a business professional and does an amazing job at delivering an encouraging learning experience, for my son. 1/8/2014: Tonight was my son's final lesson with Carole before his SSAT, which will be in two days. We feel so fortunate that we had Carole and my son is feeling a lot more confident in his ability to perform well in the exam. couldn't ask for a better tutor!! She genuinely cares about her students and is truly committed and encouraging!!
