Students can expect • A renewed level of confidence • Stronger foundational math knowledge • Higher passion for math learning • Higher grades (1 letter grade minimum increase for consistent clients) Most students struggle with math, thus I delight in seeing the confidence levels of students rise. That "aha" moment is a building block to inspiring students to want to learn more as their confidence levels rise. My vision is to expand my services to more students who struggle with math so they can reach the highest levels of success....

Aziz was a great fit for my daughter. He really helped build back her confidence with AP Calculus AB after dealing with a teacher that never took time to explain in school. Aziz gave her the time and patience she needed to succeed. She brought up her grade and got a 5 on the AP exam. Couldn't have asked for more from him. I highly recommend his services.
