"I just wanted you to know that after every meeting, you help me reenergize and refocus on the ultimate goal, and most importantly you help me realize that I too will pass. Although this may be part of every “tutor’s” tasks, as you know I have come across many and I have hired many, but no one prior to you had caused me to have the belief I have now that this is doable for me. The rest is up to me and to do the work. So thank you!"
