“Isaac was patient, prepared, and encouraging. He explained things in a simple and memorable way so I felt it was okay to ask questions.”
Bianca, MD Applicant
“Isaac was an exceptional tutor. He was able to explain new concepts and review familiar ones in a clear and concise way. He taught specifically for my daughter's learning style, and did so with respect, compassion, and humor. He was flexible with scheduling and always there when she needed him. He also kept me informed and listened to my feedback as well. Issac was a perfect fit. My daughter has a much better understanding of physics now.”
Karen, Parent of AP Physics Student
“Isaac is an incredibly knowledgeable and patient tutor who has tailored lessons to my daughter's learning style. He is professional, courteous, prompt, and flexible.”
Parent of AP Physics Student
“Isaac brings a rare humanity and care to his work. Our seventh-grade son had always loved and done well math until he had the wrong teacher. Isaac has rehabilitated our son's confidence and excitement about the subject, and his performance in the class has improved demonstrably.”
