New! Tutorials in Math & Science
Students are often pushed into advanced classes before they are comfortable with the basics. This is especially problematic in math. It's easy to get behind and to want to give up. We offer individual and small-group tutorials in math and science, given by qualified university graduate students or upper-level undergraduates, starting October 2, 2013. Our tutorials build an understanding of concepts through hands-on problem solving.
New! On-line Payments Implemented!
Finally we have moved a bit further into the 21st century, and you can make secure payments online through our website. We use a combination of Stripe and SpaceBox, which provides security for your personal information and charge-card numbers. Try it out using our payments form!
