Perfect! Samy was a great tutor for me! I was able to improve my grade and he helped me thoroughly understand all the concept in calculus and vectors. We spent a lot of time together and I would highly recommend him to anyone.
Matei is a smart student, grasps the concept well and able to apply it pretty good. With some practice, I'm certain that his mark will reach a higher level.
Perfect! Samy has been helpful in tutoring my son in Advanced Functions. My son is learning all of his course material through Samy and learning and understanding the material that the online schooling is not able to deliver. Samy is well prepared with notes and material to help the learning process. Highly recommend this tutor.
