Tohoru is a great math teacher (tutoring in Geometry Honors). Very patient, thorough, and professional. Explains the concepts clearly. Super helpful. Thank you!
- Kafi B. from Woodland Hills, CA
Tohoru has been a massive help to my son in his mathematical endeavors on AMC 12. He really knows how to teach well and makes sure that my son fully understand the concepts before moving on. Tohoru is a very passionate and energetic math teacher and his lessons are never boring. My son said he has learned a lot from him and wants to continue to learn more and more from him. My son has made a lot of progress since he took lessons with Tohoru. We highly recommend Tohoru if anyone either wants to improve math or seek some challenges in math.

Mr.Tohoru is very engaging,patient,collaborative and an awesome Calc BC tutor for our daughter. She has really taken to his teaching and finds his approach very dynamic and uplifting! She looks forward to the lessons. Highly recommend. Thanks for being a great partner in helping her achieve her goal.

Tohoru is an excellent teacher. My son who was a solid B student now has 95% in Algebra 2. He?s punctual and communicates well.
- Zoya P. from Los Angeles, CA
We worked on homework for our honors precalculus course. This is an extra-challenging course that goes beyond typical precalculus material and topics; homework is rigorous! Tohoru was really knows the subject, but he is also patient and easy to relate to. We got a lot done in a relaxed, stress-free way.
- Lisa B. from Palo Alto, CA
First session with my son tutoring him in calculus went very well. Very warm, patient, and knowledgeable! We will have him come again in a few days. Lots of material to review! Recommend highly.
- Deborah B. from Pasadena, CA
We do not have enough accolades to praise the professional guidance and care Tohoro gave to our son this past year. He is a quiet math powerhouse with a special gift of guiding his students to a clear understanding. He helped bridge thenchallenge of the basic calculations to the more thoughtful theorems in AP Calculus AB. Leaving the class with a 98 and a strong positive feeling about his AP score has given our son and our family every reason to book Tohoro for next year?s AP Calculus BC class knowing we are in the best of hands. We have given out his name to others with the same positive results. He is the best.

Tohoru us a patient tutor with clear explanations. We've only had a couple of sessions with Tohoru so far, but my daughter gives him high marks and says his tutoring has been helpful. We're looking forward to more sessions and would definitely recommend him.
- Sheri C. from Los Angeles, CA
Tohoru has been working with my son for several months. He's terrific! He's helped my son understand math concepts and feel more confident. I would recommend him highly without any reservation.
- Anshu B. from Beverly Hills, CA
We were extremely lucky to find Tohoru in the middle of the school year when my son was having some struggles in his Honors Algebra 2 class. Although he was a straight-A student most of the first semester, the concepts became more challenging and broke my son's confidence. Then Tohoru swooped in like some kind of super hero armed with conceptualization, short cuts, thorough explanations, and organizationI tools. He not only helped raise my son's slipping B grade back up to an A on his final report card, but he also helped to restore his confidence. I plan on scheduling some sessions over the summer just to review old concepts and to introduce him to Pre-calculus. My son says he's awesome!!
- Charnette F. from Los Angeles, CA
Seriously great tutor, helped me through calc 2. Always willing to expand on and explain any concept that I needed help on and also managed to make calc more enjoyable and grounded than most other teachers I've had. I doubt I would have been able to pass calc 2 with the grade I did without his help.
- Steven C. from Manhattan Beach, CA
Though we've only had one session with Tohoru, my son said he got more out of one hour with him than all his other math tutors combined over two years. He's excited to work with him on college test prep.
- Anne W. from Marina Del Rey, CA
Tohoru's teaching helped our son get through Geometry! We are looking forward to working with him again next year for Algebra 2. Thank you.
- CJ W. from La Canada Flintridge, CA
Thank you so much for an amazing year! Tohoru tutored my daughter in Algebra 2 and Chemistry and her grades improved drastically over the course of tutoring. He is always very patient and fun, and my daughter enjoyed being tutored, even in subjects that were not her favorite. He is very good at returning emails and phone calls and always makes time before a test or final for some extra tutoring. We will definitely continue having Tohoru as a tutor for the rest of her math classes, as well as help on SAT math. Thank you again!
- Meg L. from Los Angeles, CA
Tohoru was able to identify the problem areas and helped get my child get up to speed very effectively. He works with a quiet focus, engaged my child well, and was patient in working toward their goals. He did a great job in preparing my child to successfully pass the course material and move on to the next level. We are very grateful for his help!
- David S. from Los Angeles, CA
Tohoru is very patient and insightful. He was easy to contact and very enjoyable to work with. He made himself available for follow up questions after our session had ended. Tohoru has a very upbeat attitude and i would definitely recommend him to anyone looking to fine tune his or her math skills. Great experience!!
- Emily V. from West Hollywood, CA
My son has taken the AP exam with confidence today. I don't know the result yet but I'm pretty sure that he did it well. Only three weeks ago, his prep for the AP test was poor. Then I contacted Tohoru and he gave me a quick response and came to save us. After a couple of lessons, my son was totally turned around. Tohoru is great tutor. He is patient and precise. My son respects him because of Tohoru's deep knowledge in math-science field. We are very happy to meet him. Thank you!
- Hiromi S. from South Pasadena, CA
I called Tohoru in a panic with two weeks to prepare for my GRE. After 20 years since studying math, Tohoru helped me to quickly grasp the concepts needed to succeed in my exam. He was very patient and always made sure I truly understood each problem before moving on - often offering alternative solutions for reaching the answer when the first route was hard to grasp. Tohoru was very personable and made each session fun and interesting. I passed the exam and was accepted into Graduate School!
- Peter W. from New York, NY
I am a returning student. I live in Greensboro N.C. and I was traveling for the entire week of the thanksgiving break, to see family members in Glendale, California. I am taking a pre-calculus class; my class was beginning a new chapter in the text, and unfortunately for me I would be missing two classes. Being able to meet with a wonderful tutor like him in California worked out perfectly. He was an exceptionally patient tutor; he explained the theory behind the math, and was a great help to me. On my return back to school; I discovered that I was a section ahead of the rest of the students and had a better understanding of the chapter overall. Thank you.
