Because of this, I initially sought the help of tutors who charged less. What I found was that these people usually either didn't know their subject or didn't know how to teach, in some cases both. They also often lacked those qualities that characterize true professionals. There is truth to the saying, "You get what you pay for." Karen charges a little more than some other tutors on WyzAnt (but also a lot less than tutors who charge hundreds of dollars an hour.)

Both were excellent but we felt Cynthia was more thorough, organized, and a better match for our son. Having now worked with Cynthia for a few months we wouldn't go back to my son's old tutor. Cynthia is a pro. She knows her stuff and knows how to teach. She communicates well with us (the parents) and she's a nice person to deal with. Some weeks she goes over schoolwork other weeks, when my son has less schoolwork, Cynthia gives her own lessons -- she's flexible.
She made me feel less intimidated with SPSS. I would highly recommend her and get more tutoring sessions with her! I didn't feel rushed and learned new concepts, better than when my professor talks about them and in less time.
