We are very impressed with Hooman. He not only is very intelligent and knows the subject matter well, but he has a very friendly and personable way about him that is not intimidating to my daughter. She really likes working with him and feels that he is adding value. We would certainly use him again and would recommend (and already have recommended) his services to others.
Very responsive and easy to work with. He relates very well to the kids and explains things in terms they can understand.
Hooman is tutoring my son Alex at our home in Plandome Manor. Alex had been struggling with chemistry at Chaminade. Hooman made it so much easier for him! Alex feels much more confident now-he's not scared of chemistry anymore.
