"Sean did an admirable job………not too often you can find a tutor in fluid mechanics.  Sean was focused on the issue and didn’t just go through the motions.  I/we believe we will survive the course, final in 2 weeks.

I’ll let you know how it went."

"I just want to tell you that I really had a wonderful experience working with Mike. He was by far the best tutor I could ever ask for.Thank you very much for you service and I hope to keep in touch for the future, in case I resume with Mike in the Winter/Spring. 

Thank you once again. "

Jung - Northwestern University GRE student

"I wanted to let you know that my son believes that you are the best tutor he has ever had, in any subject.  We have hired many tutors over the past ten years, so you are the best in a sizable pool of talent .  Even though his collegeclass is not yet over and we haven’t received a grade, I wanted to let you know about my son’s opinion and to thank you for being diligent, patient, responsible, and dependable.  Thank you for agreeing to come to our home at a convenient time , particularly after you have finished a full day of teaching in your “day job . ”   I also hope that you will consider tutoring my son next semester ."
