The tutoring was personal and was attentive to the problems I had with certain concepts. I do not feel an improvement could have been given because it is great tutoring.

Abbey was very understanding and pleasant over the phone. She was confident that we would like the tutor she was suggesting for my son and she was absolutely correct. Ivan is mature, respectful, organized and goal oriented. He relates well with my teenage son. He encourages my son to challenge himself and offers great advice. Thank you Abbey.
