Test Preparation“Karina was an excellent match in every way. She knew the material cold as she is a biologist and she also knew what would be expected on the AP exam as she teaches the class. Furthermore, she was dedicated to making sure C. learned the material and was encouraging and sweet. I cannot say enough good things about Karina.”
