“I went into the test feeling confident and prepared because of Vera's tutoring. Vera helped me work hard towards my goal. Each session we covered a new topic or reviewed material from previous sessions, and Vera had lots of resources for me to use. She was great at explaining concepts thoroughly. I had a completely positive experience wit Vera and Cambridge Coaching.”
