Melissa P. says, "Derek was very knowledgeable and personable. He make sure my son understood the concepts, so he could move forward in the course with confidence. My son made an A in this class. He probably would have made a C without Derek. In addition Derek would work with us on short notice when necessary. My son’s teacher would often change homework due dates and quizzes and Derek always accommodated us. I can’t say enough good things about our experience with him." Read more

Jeff L. T. says, "Maria has been tutoring my son Aiden for several months in Pre-Calc. I've very pleased with her demeanor, inviting semi- Socratic style and thoughtful approach as she guides him through his lessons. She carefully identifies his strengths and weaknesses then helps him transition into more critical thought and reflection working through the why's, how's, and relevance of each problem area in the overall scheme. He comes to his own solutions (most of the time--lol!) in ways that build on his strengths and strengthens his weaknesses in a fun way. With Maria its not just getting the right answers, its understanding the right questions. Aiden looks forward to his sessions each week and his grades reflect her impact. I see his confidence building in learning. Most importantly, Aiden is smiling again when it comes to math and looks forward to preparing for each week! Thanks Maria!" Read more

Reviews for High Point math tutors

Recent success stories from people in the High Point area.
Rolanda R.
Mr. Williams helped my daughter with a Precal class she'd struggled to pass. He was patient, kind & encouraging. He made sure she understood the basics and helped her with her confidence as well. With the help of Mr. Williams, she passed her four week summer Precal class which is very hard to accomplish.
Arletha A.
The flexibility with meeting times and the ability to offer detailed explanations to questions is most helpful. Jake took the time to get familiar with the class materials which has been helpful in understanding the structure of where my son is struggling. He's a great listener! He will ask a question and than allow the student opportunity to answer vs. explain for them.
