Ali tutored both our Northgate students on various math classes, as well as ACT prep. She tailored her lessons to each child’s temperament. She showed up on time, and was also dependable as well as thorough. Ali is a life-long learner; she is always working at making sure she’s up to speed with the teachers at the schools and the changes in the tests. I highly recommend her.

Ali has been amazing! She has been working diligently with my two 8th grade daughters, both of whom have brain injuries and 504s. Today they are graduating with the “Principal’s Award” for maintaining a 4.0 all three years of junior high school. Grades aside, the girls have learned skills and gained confidence that will serve them well in high school. We will continue to work with Ali; her kind and gentle direction in their school work has helped them (and me) more than I can explain. So grateful we found her!

Ali is the best!!! She helped my son with his Algebra II Trig class when he began to struggle. Ali is very understanding, patient, flexible, and reliable…all the wonderful attributes you would seek in a tutor. Plus she’s very relatable and communicates well with kids so they ‘get it’. If your child needs a tutor you can trust to help to not only elevate their grade but bring a true understanding of math, contact Ali!!!

Ali is an amazing and talented tutor. Last year, she tutored my sophomore daughter and a classmate as they struggled through Algebra II/Trigonometry. Ali successfully guided them through tough material, and literally took my daughter from failing to A’s and B’s in the class. This year, my daughter continues to work with Ali on Pre-Calculus, and is doing very well. Ali has a calm, patient, and clear manner that truly makes my daughter feel comfortable – she is the best!
