  • “After going to tutoring, Med Surg I made so much more sense. Being able to hear a student explain material in a different way greatly impacted my learning experience. Katie and Lisa are excellent tutors, who go out of their way to make sure students learn more complex topics and concepts. I have and continue to recommend these two tutors to other students who have been struggling in this class. However, I think any student (struggling or not) would greatly benefit from these two.”
