I got 87% on the final and got a B+ as the final grade! Thank you again so much for the help; I wouldn't have been able to do it without you!

I know this is long overdue, but I wanted to say a huge thank you for all your statistics help this past school year. It really made a difference and I wouldn't have gotten by without it!! Thanks again.

Thanks a lot for tutoring A. over the summer. He has clearly developed an interest in Physics, just as he did in Chemistry last summer following his work with you. My wife and I really appreciate that you made a special consideration by agreeing to help A. out this summer and give him a head start despite your family obligations!

Just to let you know, Craig is VERY good. He is so engaging and has so much energy and really cares. J. has done fantastic on her last few tests when he tutored her. I wish we had used him sooner.

Dear Craig and Jill,
The descriptions on this bill reminded me all over again of what great work you are doing with D. and C. Thank you and please let me know if I can reinforce any study habits at home ...

"Thank you for tutoring G. She said the exam was difficult but your tutoring sessions helped her. I realize that it was short notice and in the ninth hour."
I just wanted to let you know that I got a 100% on the math test you helped me on. Thank you so much. "
