Reviews from others

“He never fails to repeat anything I do not understand and provides multiple solutions to problem solving.”

Chelsea

“He is patient, explains thoroughly and ensures that you understand before moving on. Liked the fact that he gives sufficient amount of homework after each lesson and goes through corrections with you. ”

Thembisile

“Patrick Kosongo took the time to get to know how Jon Robbie processed the information. Taking a unique approach with a student is key because they know you get them. A rapport developed. Patrick was encouraging and saw where our son’s frustrations existed and has been building on that knowledge base to help him tackle difficult subjects like Physics, Chemistry and Pre-Calc. Our son is hard on himself and very determined. Patrick identified this and helped to redirect his energy into understanding the foundation. Jon Robbie is now feeling the zone better with positivity from what he has learned.”

Lisa

“A key mark of a good tutor is one that is able to breakdown complex concepts and explain them. Patrick did that very well. He was also very flexible and willing to adjust his approach to my teaching preference - really one of the best tutors I have had. He played a major role in my passing this exam. ”
