5April2012This is an awesome thing you’re doing, Jen! Wow! I remember you tutoring me when I thought my life was over when I had to successfully complete Finite Math, I think….it’s been so long I can’t even remember! But I remember you saving this sinking ship with your extraordinary tutoring skills! Your “matter of fact,” down to earth, “it’s not that serious,” “You’ve got this!” approach to tutoring was the winning factor for me! You are an AWESOME tutor and teacher and I would recommend you to ANYONE! Thanks, again, my friend! Tracy Canada
