Testimonials

“Abigail tutored me in Orgo 1 this past semester, and her teaching style worked well for me. She's great at explaining things and always made sure I genuinely understood the concepts. She's super flexible and understanding, which was great with my hectic college schedule. ”

Teresa, Chemistry Student at the University of Notre Dame

“Before working with Cambridge coaching, I would learn how to solve the problem and leave it at that. However, after I started tutoring with Mihir, I realized that my way was not going to cut it. He made me think about the "why" of chemistry more than the "how" and solidified my conceptual understanding of each topic. Mihir left me with skills which I consider essential to my learning process and helped me think more critically. ”

Chemistry Student at the University of Virginia

“I had a great experience working with Sam. He made chemistry not only seem easy, but taught me valuable memorization and critical thinking skills that allowed me to excel in my classes. I'm really excited to continue working with Sam throughout my time in college.”

Rahul, Chemistry Student at the University of Miami

“Michael's confidence in me along with his exceptional teaching ability has taken me from a student who believed learning chemistry was hopeless, to a student who has now discovered a new adoration for a subject. No matter how frustrated I would get with myself, Michael pushed me to reach my potential while accommodating every possible misunderstanding I might've had along the way. Michael's doesn't just teach you how to do a problem; he enables you to conceptualize the idea behind what you are learning and then apply it to various problems. ”

“Nikki really helped me understand concepts for my introductory chemistry course. She made amazing study guides that were excellent at mapping out what I needed to know for each test. I’m so glad that I worked with Nikki because I know that I learned the material not only well enough to do well in this class, but to succeed in future classes because of the strong foundation I have in this subject.”
