I think Anushree is a very good teacher. She is very responsible and always on time for every single class. She is encouraging and reads from the textbook very smoothly without lag. She knows where it is hard for me to understand or remember and explains it to me. Lastly, Anushree asks me questions about the text to test if I understood it. Overall, Anushree is an excellent teacher.

I can’t express enough appreciation to our tutor: Amy, for teaching my 4th grade son to write. Amy took her job very seriously with great passion. Not only did Amy came to classes on time, with self-prepared materials, but also, she paid full attention to my son. With a structured tutoring plan, Amy diagnosed first, found that my son couldn’t write proper sentences, with lots of grammar errors. Therefore, Amy started tutoring with grammar lessons 2 hours per week, created PowerPoints for lecture, gave excises after each topic, which I believe Amy must have spent lots of her time to put these materials together. After my son improved on writing sentences after 12 lessons, Amy started to teach my son how to write paragraphs with topic my son chose. I still remembered how Amy helped my son to describe Pizza. Amy told to my son: “Use your imagination. image one time you ate your favorite pizza, you held a slice, how it smelled, how it looked; when you put in into your mouth, how it melted in your month, how the chess stretched……. Use these sensory words to give vivid description….” Amy went on with my son to find the words/sentences to structure the paragraph. This is just one example of many how Amy taught in an effective way. After 6-7 hours paragraph lessons, Amy moved on with writing essay. She drew diagrams/outlines to help my son plan, draft, and write essay. Amy wasn’t just sitting there. She worked together with my son writhing essays from planning to editing/revising. I was very impressed because Amy, just a high school student, demonstrated strategic plan on volunteer teaching. Amy must have put enormous efforts on it. I really wish Amy to teach my son longer, but I understand she has school and other commitments. Here I just want to express my gratitude to FUSS, and all the volunteers who spent their precious time on volunteering, especially to Amy, can’t say THANK YOU enough for your dedication. You did an exceptional work!
Dear Sanjana S,
I want to express my sincere gratitude for all efforts
you have made this summer to teach Kashvi. From day one, she enjoyed each and every lesson of yours and used to look forward to next class. I really appreciate the way in which you helped her learn new concepts in Math and English. I am very impressed with your dedication and hard work and wish you all the best for your future.
I would like to sincerely thank and appreciate Harsh for spending his valuable time teaching science lessons to my son. Each week, he prepared the content based from my son’s school text book such as heat, light, electricity, sound, forces, energy, motion just to name a few. He would even assign a few questions from the text book to my son as homework. My son really felt he didn’t miss learning science at school during shelter in place, because Harsh was able to continue his science lessons virtually with him. The best part was, I saw my shy son start asking more questions and looking forward to Harsh’s science lessons as the weeks went on since he taught science in a fun way.
I would like to wish Harsh much success in his junior year this upcoming school year ahead!
Thanks for all your help!
This is a message to my teacher, Aditi G., who taught me a lot and helped me understand writing and science better! Thank you so much for helping me succeed!
We wanted to thank you deeply for all your sincere help that you provided our son. Your help in piano music theory explanation and the specific corrections to all the music pieces these past few months were instrumental. It was extremely timely help as shelter in place kicked in, and having his regular piano classes transition to virtual, and all the while as he prepares for his piano exam. Your suggestions on how he may get over stage freight were very insightful. We were particularly amazed at your ability to correct his pieces diligently on hearing him play virtually. Every early Sunday mornings, you were ready to tutor and patiently made corrections on his musical pieces and provided your corrections digitally immediately after the tutoring session. Your ability to use the technology of logging into multiple devices so the student can see you and your piano was a brilliant idea. Thank you so much for all your sincere volunteering help in getting him to do an excellent job on his piano exam audition. We couldn’t have done it without your help!

Thank you very much for organizing the FUSS tutoring session and I would like to appreciate my son’s math tutor Chaitya for spending his valuable time for tutoring my son with a nice and innovative manner while keeping him interested in the lesson. I personally attended in the background with his lessons and Chaitya doing a great job by giving him challenges and appreciations and motivation skills. It is a superb way of keeping the learner engaged and enthusiastic to the lesson and I am really happy to say that I got a great tutor for my child. Finally I would like to congratulate Chaitya for his skills and his future success.

Also, he has been supporting my son a lot with math problems and writing in English, his efforts are appreciable. I am very happy that my son is working with him. Thank you very much.
My tutor is simply outstanding! I struggle with Science and Hansa has helped me so much! Instead of just reading everything off the book, she makes me absorb the information in a way I can understand. She gives examples for every thing and that helps a lot. I remember what she is teaching me even after a long time! By far, she is the best student tutor I have ever had! My tutor’s name is Hansa and I would like to recommend her! My name is Dheekshana and I am a 7th grader.
Many thanks to our awesome tutor Shubha V, who has been helping my son Charles with reading and writing. She is very patient and resourceful. Charles enjoys the time with her, and has improved both in skills and in study attitude. Thank you so much Shubha!

Hi Caitlynn, Thank you so much for supporting Sameer with his school needs during shelter in place.
I like the profile of youth tutor, Sriram from Mission San Jose High School. We are very grateful to find a kind mentor.
I sincerely appreciate the time by people making tremendous efforts in making this wonderful place for kids.
In this pandemic situation, kids at home are not only lack of help with school assignment directly from teachers, but also more importantly isolated from the society. As a parent of two elementary kids, I feel the pain, like all other parents.
This tutoring program is so helpful in connecting the kids together.
I signed up this program for my 1st grader son that he recently has challenges at school writing. Every time, it takes hours for him for his writing assignment without knowing what to say, where to start and how to finish.
Originally I think it may be good to have a senior student tutoring my younger little ones so that they may have common topics, the tutor may give younger kid tips and ideas based on their own experience.
Today, my 1st grader son received his 1st session from Celina, 9th grader with Mission San Jose.
Tutor is so impressive. She is awesome. She is patient in listening in needs of young students. She immediately found out solution by giving a tool that kids can play a game to find adventure for their writing stories. She also has a plan to ask my son preparing writing a story together at next session. She also shared her own school essay that my young kid admired how difficult it is for a 9th grader.
My 1st grader son is thrilled at this tutoring program. He and his tutor also shared their same interests and more discussion in Pokemon game. My son agreed that his tutor is great.
It surprised me, the session is only 15-20 minutes. However, this short tutoring event, it can help with building great values in developing skills in responsibility, time management, scheduling and communication. Social skills is so much important together with academic skills which lead future greater success in life.
This 15-20 minutes tutoring event makes the time meaningful. Kids may be playing games or watching YouTube, if without this tutoring session. However kids can look at outside world by communicating with other kids. It is valuable and meaningful.
I am sure when my kids growing up, I will encourage and I am sure they will be interested in signing up this program in helping other kids same as they have received help via this tutoring program.
Thank you so much to the organizer and thank you for tutors offering help to young learners.
