I homeschooled my children as a single mother because they all had needs that some schools didn't have resources to deal with so I figured out the best way to teach each child while traveling around the country and working; all went on to attend College and now have successful careers. I was also a substitute teacher for elementary students in Hamblen Co during the 2003-2004 school year. Each child learns in their own way and that is wh

Julia B.
Sam Rhodes was an excellent tutor who not only helped me improve my grade in my challenging calculus class, but also helped me gain self-confidence in my work. Although to me the subject was anything but exciting, I never dreaded going to my sessions and in fact looked forward to them because I knew that they would be beneficial to my learning. I would recommend Sam to anyone who is looking for a tutor who cares if you succeed.

We loved our experience with Seth. My daughter was able to ask questions and receive detailed guidance on math concepts swiftly covered in the classroom setting. Seth was knowledgeable in various learning methods and pinned down the best approach for my daughter to learn math concepts confidently. His patience, persistence, and knowledge led my daughter from a below average math student to leaving high school with an A average in math.
