    He is a great tutor. He has helped me understand more of the concept of what I am learning. He describes how to do it perfectly and shows great examples for me.

  • Evan Bovard

    Sam was great to work with, he was knowledgeable on the subject material and did a great job breaking down tough concepts into simpler parts. I will definitely be looking to hire Sam again when I'm stuck and need help.

  • Dave Kuntz

    At first I was hesitant to hire a Math Tutor because I wasn't sure if it was worth the time and money, but after 3 lesson's with Sam I'm glad I did. Besides helping me to get the answer to a Math problem, Sam is very good at explaining the process used to get the answer.
