Out of the Woods Testimonials

Great help in a difficult time!

I’ve had a lot of anxiety going into my third year statistics course. A lot of people end up failing the class or just simply drop out. Heather made it so much easier and a lot less stressful than I expected. She helped me to understand statistics in simple explanations and examples. Great tutor with a flexible availability and readiness to help.

Tutoring Review – Elaine H.

Heather tutored me in advanced statistics during my undergraduate degree. Understanding complex mathematical concepts has always been a challenge for me but Heather simplified the material in a way that made sense to me. Thanks to Heather’s help I finished the course ranking at the top of my class. Heather is patient, intelligent and an excellent tutor who I would most definitely recommend to others.
