    I hired Scott because my son who is a working actor, just got cast in television program and needed to work independently. He was having trouble keeping up with certain courses and Scott saved the day! He was patient and persistent and helped my son complete his course work with wonderful grades. You can tell Scott loves to teach. He was with us for several weeks and was always a pleasure to have around. And this was even during the pandemic. I would hire Scott again in a heartbeat and would recommend him to anyone! Rebecca King Crews Pasadena

    My son who struggles with math and has a learning disability needed to pass statistics to be able to transfer to UCI. We hired Scott based on the reviews here and it was the best thing we ever did. He was committed and patient, taking the time to work with my son and give him the techniques he needed to help with testing. Today we found out that my son got a passing grade and will be transferring in the Fall. Very appreciate for Scott’s support and commitment in helping my son advance.

    I’m very pleased with Scott. He drives several miles to my home to tutor my 16 year old son in math. After the first session, my son began improving! Scott is patient and works himself around my family’s busy schedule. He is great!

    Scott is an awesome tutor I was completely lost at the beginning of my trig class and we were able to knock out a lot of topics in one session but you got me on the fast track to get up to speed really appreciate it
