Last year my daughter struggled with math, algebra to be exact. She has always had a hard time in math. This math deficit caused her to not want to do any of her school work. This year has been... different from the others though. Since my daughter started receiving help from your wonderful tutors, Mr Christopher Tucker and Mrs Dorothy Zinn my daughter has been an A B student in all of her classes. And we couldn't be happier.

I couldn't offer enough positive reviews or references for Jim Waldman and his entire "TEAM"! They were able to start a tutoring schedule with my high school student in the late spring, within two... days of my first inquiry! Then the billing process is simple, well explained and easy to take care of. The quality of the tutor him self, and his follow up through out the summer and into this year has been professional and sincere! Thank you Tutor A Team for a job well done!Rev Guillread more
