Katie J. says, "Shawn is the most amazing tutor I have ever had the privilege of working with. Before I started working with Shawn, my grade in chemistry was pretty low. Thanks to Shawn, I received an A on my final exam and finished with an A in general chemistry. Between sessions, he sent me links to helpful websites and created powerpoints on topics I was struggling with. He truly cares about and is committed to a student's success. I highly recommend Shawn." Read more

Hello! My name is Alicia Penta, but my current students call me Miss Penta. I work as a 7th grade inclusion special education teacher, and I have been for 4 years. I love working with my students because everyone needs a cheerleader, and I am able to do that for them! I teach math, science, ELA, and Ancient Civ, I can tutor any subject, besides foreign language. The biggest takeaways I want my students to have when they leave the 7th grade is confidence and the ability to use strategies to help them be successful.

Mr. Smith is easily the best tutor I've ever worked with. From his patience to his fun personality, it was always a joy being tutored by him. Mr. Smith always had a deep understanding of the material and was able to explain it in different ways that helped you understand it as well. I would recommend Mr. Smith as a tutor to anyone that needs help with their schoolwork or just wants to get ahead of the class.
