U - Understand the problem - what is being asked

Very Patient and a great tutor
Vernon doesn't only explain how to do the things you don't know how to do. He explains why it works the way it does. He helped me with all of my Geometry. Great Tutor!

Great session
Elaine was quite pleased with the tutoring session. Vernon has tutored our son in the past so we called on him again when our daughter started struggling. He's always calm and pleasant and puts the kids at ease so they are willing to ask questions. Thanks!

Intelligent individual who knows what he is doing. Highly recommend
Vernon taught me what I needed to know to gain a better grasp on the concepts of calculus. Derivatives, antiderivatives, and conceptual problems. I highly recommend him.

The Best
Vernon is helping me with Pre Cal. My average scores have been in the high 90s, since working with him. He explains things again and again until you get it. He is patient, understanding and flexible. Thank you Vernon for all you do!!

Great Start
Vernon has been tutoring my son for this past fall and spring and he has done a fantastic job with him. Not only has his grades risen but also his confidence in math as well. I believe that Vernon’s approach to tutoring and his ability to help my son get comfortable with math has made all the difference in the world. I recommend him to any parent who has a child who might be anxious and stressed out about math!!!

Great tutor!
Vernon has a wonderful method of relating to my son and assessing how he learns best. My son has shown improvement and is more confident. I appreciate the fact that Vernon is always assessing my sons comprehension of the material he is helping him on and encouraging my son. We are so glad to have found Vernon as a tutor for my son!

Great calculus tutor
This was my student's third time meeting with Vernon for Calculus. This session was just as helpful as the previous. Vernon is always patient and can explain multiple ways. My student's confidence is always improved after the tutoring, as well.
