In a nutshell. I would recommend Carlyle to anyone. PATIENT, UNDERSTANDING, KIND, and frankly helped my daughter solve the MATH stigma that was SO upsetting her that her PAID teacher wouldn't give my daughter the time of day to help her. A great guy. And a GREAT tutor. I would refer him to any one needing help for their child.
My son hated the stigma/idea of getting a tutor, and I was sure that he would be unresponsive. Todd won him over! After just a couple sessions with Todd, he looked forward to tutoring and would drag me out of the door, "come on, Mom, let's go." Todd has a great way of relating to high school kids, and explaining math and science concepts clearly and logically. He worked with my son on two topics: Intro to Physical Science and Algebra.
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!!
