Testimonials

Joanne K. Parent Children attended Packer Collegiate Institute in New York Sohail tutored both of my two children in Math and standardized test prep over a period of several years. He has an exceptional work ethic, was highly professional and able to relate to and connect with these two very different learners… Never was the same tutor able to work with them both, due to their very different styles and personalities. Sohail was the exception… His attitude was terrific, undaunted by teenage attitude or frustrations. His being so positive not only increased the kids' skills, but also their confidence. He is very calm and communicated with me regularly on their progress… Over the years, I have worked with many tutors and among this group Sohail was exceptional. ——— Deniz T. Student Attended Üsküdar American Academy in Istanbul I want to thank you thank you and thank you… I know I have a great sense of calculus. Thank you for being one of the best teachers I have ever met. ——— Doreen D. Parent Daughter attended Friends Seminary in New York Sohail connected immediately with my daughter in her first AP Calculus tutoring session. She quickly grew from a student frustrated with calculus to the rising star in her class at Friends Seminary happily setting the bar for her classmates. When Sohail broached the topic of remote tutoring using Skype and a special camera I was skeptical but agreed to continue because of Sohail's tutoring techniques and her success in the classroom. The Skype sessions were at times more convenient and equally as productive if not more productive. The result was a confident language arts student conquering AP Calculus with top results of a 5 on the AP exam. I strongly recommend Sohail as a tutor without any hesitation. ——— Jordan A. Student Attended Windhoek International School in Namibia I genuinely think you were probably the best math teacher I've ever had.
