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.

Tricia is an excellent communicator and student advocate. She is always among the top two tutors that I recommend to my students.

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 tutor for everything including SAT!


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.
