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.
This is the first time we used online tutoring and it worked great. Shawn was a great help to my son in preparing him for a chem test. Would definitely recommend him and the online tutoring!
My son has done both styles of tutoring, face to face with another tutor and currently online with Bruce. He gets just as much out of the online tutoring as he did with the face to face tutoring, but with the added convenience of not leaving home. Bruce is also an excellent and patient tutor. He has only been working with my son, on ap calculus ab for a couple of weeks, and already his grade is improving. we highly recommend online tutoring with Bruce.
