At the moment he's tutoring my daughter in College Algebra and my son who's a Sophomore in high school taking Algebra 2/Trigonometry. Thanks to his knowledge and great tutoring skills, my children have improved greatly. I highly recommend him.""

"I really didn't grasp Statistics concepts until Orland began tutoring me. His mastery of the subject is great, and he broke it down in simple, comprehensive terms. I was just hoping to pass, but with Orland's help I got a B+ in the class. I'm currently taking an advanced Statistics course at CSUN. Since Orland taught me the basic concepts and how to study effectively, I have a B+ so far and hoping for an A. Awesome!""
"Best tutor ever!! You can trust Orland to teach you - or your child the mathematical skills they need to pass their coursework.

"I am truly glad that I had the opportunity to learn math with Orland. Not only did he improve my studying habits, he also helped me understand difficult concepts in calculus very easily! I got a C in Calc I, but that was good considering I literally had no idea what I was doing initially and would have surely flunked. He tutored me again in Calc II the following semester. Because of Orland's help, I competed for the highest exam grades and wound up with a solid A. Lastly, Orland left a lasting impression on me because I am currently aiming for valedictorian for my Diagnostic Medical Sonography program. I highly recommend Orland.”"
"I was very happy with Orland and his tutoring. I took intermediate algebra at College of the Canyons which I was failing miserably. I began my tutoring sessions midway through the Semester thinking I still wouldn't pass. Mind you this was the last class required in order to received my two AA's.

He made me feel like we were in it TOGETHER, which made a difference for me. It's because of his help and knowledge that I passed my class. Orland is my GUARDIAN ANGEL”"

Before Orland tutored me, I had two F's and a D in my first three exams of my Trigonometry/Precalculus class. After 3 sessions with Orland I took my next test, and I passed with a B+ (two points away from an A)! Hiring him as a tutor was the best decision my parents and I have made”"
