What Students Are Saying About the Tutor Connection Service

“My tutor was excellent. I was very impressed with her knowledge of the subject, as well as her empathy and encouragement. She did a great job of helping me learn the material and always suggested helpful learning strategies.”

"My tutor is phenomenal. This is my second time working with him as a tutor. He is incredibly organized. He is brilliant, but he is also great at teaching. He makes me think critically by asking follow up questions and asking me to explain concepts to him. I received the highest grade I've ever received in a CS course this quarter, and I know that I would not have been as prepared without him."

"My tutor was very knowledgeable about the subject and the specific course. He was able to provide strategies for approaching the material that went far beyond simply knowing the subject. This is extremely helpful for me as my learning differences make study skills and organizing information difficult. He not only helped tremendously with this class but also taught me skills I will use in approaching future courses."
