Listening to my students and observing their progress is one way I measure my effectiveness. Listening to feedback from their parents and school counselors is another.


Tricia is professional and personable. She's reliable and the students that have worked with her are extraordinarily grateful for the service she provides.

I strongly recommend Tricia's tutoring services

and do so, without reservation.

Great tutor!


Patricia has done a great job with my son. This is our first time trying an online tutor and it has worked out great. She is very patient, organized, and knowledgeable. I would definitely recommend her

to anyone.

My daughter loves her!


My daughter had a lot of trouble with Algebra last year. Tricia is really turning that around. My daughter looks forward to her tutoring sessions and is really starting to understand the concepts behind Algebra in a way

other teachers have never been able to help her to do.

Thanks, Tricia!

Great for SAT and more!


Patricia has been a fabulous tutor for our daughter during the summer before Senior year as an SAT prep tutor in all areas. Although prep is done, my daughter will continue to use Patricia throughout the year. Competent, reliable, and a

great teacher in all ways.

Excellent tutor for ASVAB!


Tricia has been working with our grandson to prepare for the ASVAB. She is awesome! She takes the time to learn what the student knows, then guide him on how to learn ... study, prepare, organize, tips for retention of material, etc.

Math anxiety conquered!


My daughter was diagnosed with a "math learning disability" in grade school. Throughout her school years, she was told she would never be able to complete college-level math, so she had extreme math anxiety. But when my daughter went to Tricia for help with College Algebra, Tricia told her that she didn’t see her trouble as a disability, but as a hurdle that could be overcome. She was kind and considerate, and after just the first session, my daughter was able to complete math problems that she was never able to do before.


I would like to write to all those teachers who told my daughter she couldn't do it and tell them that she is doing it! Tricia, when my daughter gets her degree, you can consider yourself as one of the special people in her life that helped her achieve her goal!

Teaches useful skills!


Patricia is the sole reason why my daughter substantially raised her ASVAB scores. All lessons were exceptionally well planned, and the skills my daughter learned are assisting her in her other studies, in particular a math class and an advanced science class she is currently enrolled in at her high school. She has solid grades in each of the above classes, and I have zero doubt that Patricia's tutoring is one reason why.
