Abel deserves all the praise
Abel C. has been supporting my son Aleksandar M. as his grade 8 math tutor since September 2023. We have been very fortunate to have Abel as Aleksandar’s tutor. We appreciate Abel’s professional, prompt and ongoing communication with us. As part of his lesson planning, Abel never fails to reach out to us ahead of each class to inquire about the math concepts that Aleksandar would like to go over. He inquires about any upcoming math tests and any math problems that Aleksandar would like to practice/review. Abel is patient when delivering his lecture and highly supportive and encouraging of Aleksandar. My son Aleksandar feels comfortable to ask questions and seek clarifications during the tutoring lessons.
We also highly value that Abel goes above and beyond the math concepts covered at my son’s school, and challenges my son by providing math problems with different levels of difficulty. My son also appreciates that Abel offers a different perspective and different ways of solving one math problem. Working with Abel has given my son more confidence in his math skills and he is truly enjoying math this school year. He has also done very well in tests at school.
Abel is very generous with his time and will go past the scheduled class time in order to finish the exercise with my son. We are very grateful for that but are also very respectful of Abel’s time. Thank you for your support and collaboration.

I wish I knew about it sooner
Your service is great! We used the TTS service and I wish I knew about it sooner – works very well.
Math, Grade 12
Lee W. has been incredibly responsive. He has also been a very positive tutor – able to provide feedback in a positive and constructive manner.
After the first meeting, my son was able to connect and engage with him relatively quickly. I also appreciated Lee’s adaptability- we were able to schedule in about 4 in person sessions in a given week.
We hope to connect with Lee for future sessions and connect him with my daughter as well.

Brent H. is wonderful
We have connected with Brent H. and he is wonderful! Thanks again, you guys never disappoint.
Tutor Who Makes a Difference
We just wanted to express how very grateful we are that Fremont was fortunate enough to find such an amazing physics tutor in Gerry M. He has made a huge difference to his understanding and I think his enjoyment of the subject. I think his interim report card showed a 92% in physics overall so far. He enjoys working with Gerry very much and I think we all consider Gerry to be to physics what Michael Jordan is to basketball! So please know that Gerry’s expertise and passion for the subject and his ability to share that with students is very much appreciated – we know it is not easy to find someone of his calibre but we are certainly happy we did.

Thank you for the email and for connecting me so promptly with a tutor for Divya!
We connected with Abel C. and had the first session on Friday. He is very good and Divya really enjoyed working with him. He went above and beyond with providing her helpful tips and worksheets to do on her own time.
We so appreciate the service you offer!
