Sheila makes sure I fully understand the material and does not move on until she is sure of that. Sheila has been an unbelievable help and i am truly thankful to have her as my tutor." - from a current student, tutored grades 9-12 "Sheila is a superb tutor. She knows math like no other and delivers it with incredible ease. Over the past four years, Sheila has gone to extreme measures to match content delivery to our daughter’s learning style. She’s helped improve her math grades from barely passing, to Bs and As. Sheila is a true professional; consistently punctual and willingly commits time to each session, finishing only when our daughter “owns” the information. As parents, we feel that we have placed our child in very capable hands. She comes to each session with a smile. She’s warm and kind. Today, we think of Sheila as an important and very valued part of our family." - from a current parent
