Duke was wonderful. He was able to meet with my daughter twice a week and was very flexible with his schedule. My daughter was struggling with geometry and after meeting with Duke; she felt very at ease with him. He answered all of her questions patiently and kindly suggested different methods and techniques to help her understand the lesson. Overall, I am very pleased with Duke and I will surely use him again.
Very professional, punctual and reliable. Have used him several times for AP Bio. He goes out of his way to suggest different methods of studying and makes himself available for emailing of questions. Would definitely recommend him as a tutor.
He comes prepared and is an amazing tutor. I understand physics a lot easier with his help. His time and location are pretty flexible. 5 stars :)
