  • Testimonial Citation: 
    "The econ exam went great. The conceptual questions were short definitions on things that we covered in the study guide, and the math questions were all types of problems that we had reviewed. So of course, I want to say thank you. You not only helped me learn, but you taught me how to learn, which will most definitely help me in the future. I also very much enjoyed your company, and want to thank you for being both a mentor and a friend."
