Monica has been tutoring my son for a few years.  She explains the assignments and concepts in a way that he better understands. — Eileen G (Fall 2018)

I had two tests with F’s.  After 3 visits with Monica I got 96/100 on my 3rd test!– Las Lomas Algebra II student (Spring 2018)

Monica is a dedicated professional tutor. My 16 year daughter described her as super smart but way cool. Monica builds up your student’s confidence while taking the time to determine what the specific areas of improvement are and the best course of action to tackle them. I would highly recommend her services.–Vicki S.

Monica is such a great communicator as well as being a wonderful tutor. She understands our needs and provided a professional service. I used her service only once but I am hoping to get her regular help for this school year.–Sawako O.

A tremendous help with my daughter’s math.–Aaron C.

Monica has helped build up the confidence in math for my daughter. My daughter is doing Precalc and does it as an online program which is self paced. The first feedback my daughter gave was, Monica is very professional and it seems like she has a clear lesson plan in front of her and explains it very well. I would certainly recommend Monica for the students looking for help with math tutoring.–Sripriya G.

Mrs Johnston taught high school math to my son over three years. At first he needed a specific type of support because we had just moved to California from UK and there were gaps/differences in what he had previously learnt. Mrs Johnston had to find out what my son knew and where the gaps were. As things progressed she found out that my son was learning more if he had to do more of the talking and not just listening to her. My son always found the tuition sessions useful. Mrs Johnston was flexible on lesson scheduling and her rates are reasonable.–Clare W.

Monica helped my 11th-grade son prep for his statistics final after falling behind a bit on the coursework. She helped him catch up in a 2-hour session and he got an A! We are continuing to use Monica to prep for the SAT. My son likes her very much and I am impressed by her professionalism and warm personality. We are glad we found her!–Stacy D.

Monica Johnston tutored our daughter in Algebra for 1 hour on Monday & Wednesday at our house. She was very professional and extremely patient. Monica was punctual and was willing to “Go The Extra Mile” to ensure that our daughter understood the concept.–Michael D.

From College Students

Monica teaches in a way that makes sense the first time she explains it. Math is an extremely tough subject for me and I was struggling throughout the semester until I found Monica and began tutoring with her. The first lesson, it all of the sudden made sense through great explanations and visual examples. Her tutoring is the reason why I passed my class. Thank you Monica!! – Cody (Fall 2018, Statistics)

Monica is wonderful. I truly would have never gotten through statistics without her. I am completely inept when it comes to math and was much worse where statistics was concerned. I thought I couldn’t pass, but worked with Monica regularly and passed the class!!!–D.Q., Solano Community College (Spring 2018, Statistics)

I just finish four semesters of math at DVC and now I am transferring to CSU. I can honestly say that I could not have done this without Monica at My Neighborhood Tutor. She is very knowledgeable and extremely patient. She walked me through each step of the problems that I had trouble with and more importantly, explained the concepts in plain language so that I could understand how they work. Although I have worked with other tutors, Monica is by far the best and stands out as one that has a passion for her work. I never felt rushed and she truly cares about this subject. I would recommend her to anyone.–Steven R.

If you want to gain a clearer understanding of statistics, My Neighborhood Tutor (formerly Mostly Math Tutoring Services) is the place to go! I attend CSU East Bay and have used MNT services for several years. I refuse to go anywhere else for help. Not only did I get exceptional help in statistics, but they also provided assistance with the SPSS (statistics) program taught at CSU when no one on campus could. I have tried using onsite (college campus) tutors to no avail. I hold MNT to the highest standard of excellence in (mathematics and statistics) education.–Helen S.

I’ve tried different companies and one session with Monique (Monica) was more beneficial than 4 sessions with other companies in the area. — Cal Poly Undergraduate Student

Monica is very patient, very understanding and she really knows the material very well. She explains things a lot better than my professor or TA.–John Z.

Thanks for your help, Monica. You helped me so much in understanding stats! — Brandon University Student

Monica helped me understand SPSS and statistics so that I could move forward with my dissertation. — Ohio State University PhD Student.

From Small Business Owners

I learned more about probability in 1 hour with you than I did in several hours teaching myself. — Owner of a math tutoring business
