"Tutors are guides & mentors, not just explainers!" - Dr. Tristan M. Sissung
Tristan Tutors focuses on improving test scores through instilling confidence, creating an environment for students to fully engage and translating problems & solutions that lead to results. We have three packages that continue to help students see the results they desire. With each package, students we can meet with students in person or via Skype.
Names and identifiers of students are excluded for obvious reasons; however, these all represent real score increases.
