5 star review

"Stuart is the kindest, most patient tutor I have ever encountered. No matter what your background is, Stuart's one-on-one approach is able cater to the learning speed at which you need. This also enables you to pick and choose your areas of weakness. He is also extremely good about scheduling a time that is fit for you. I worked full-time and was still able to meet Stuart for weekly lessons after I got off work. Altogether, I'm very glad I found Stuart!"

"I have never been good at math (I am actually terrified of it!) so Dr. Donnelly's calming and patient demeanor was a great help. I felt comfortable and even began to feel confident after my first meeting with him. He is not a "there is just one way to solve a math problem" kind of teacher, if a method didn't work for me, he would find a different way to approach the problem to help me understand it. He actually made the lessons enjoyable!"
