Sophie is honest, and a very good teacher. My daughter figured out what she was teaching her. Highly recommended.
Sophie was able to make questions clear by writing them out in a certain way to make it easier for me to understand! Thanks :)

Sophie helped me focus on my math so I could prepare for my test. Very helpful!
I just got my letter grade back and I got an A! Thank you so much for your help, you're truly an angel. I'm so thankful I found you! I needed this course to get into my dream graduate program. Thanks again for your help, I truly appreciate it!

Meeting with Sophie throughout my second semester of engineering helped me both understand the concepts that were being taught in lectures and apply them to difficult questions while preparing for assessments. There were many times that she was able to explain something in a way that made it much clearer to me, and I appreciate that she was always prepared. I attribute much of my success to her tutoring.
Sophie is awesome! My son was struggling with Math 30-1. Then the pandemic hit and my husband and I felt there was literally no instruction. Sophie basically taught him Math 30-1 in a way he could understand. His mark increased substantially and he enjoyed learning math again instead of feeling very frustrated. I would highly recommend Sophie to anyone requiring a math tutor. Thank you Sophie!
