Owen helped me prepare for the quantitative portion of the GRE and made this difficult task much easier! As someone with a relatively weak math background, he helped me gain a much better understanding of the basic concepts tested on the GRE. In later sessions, Owen helped me understand more challenging concepts by using real world examples that helped me internalize concepts that weren't very intuitive at first! I would highly recommend him to anyone looking for help with the quant portion of the GRE.
I had asked Owen to help me with my physics course in university as I had not previously taken physics in high school. Throughout the semester Owen was enthusiastic in his teachings and was very clear in his explanations. He was extremely patient and wouldn't mind repeating concepts even when I got questions wrong. Owen put in a lot of effort and always went above and beyond in his explanations and making sure I understood a concept before moving on. He was excellent in his theoretical background knowledge and knowing which questions would be really important in the course. Owen is very personable, intelligent and overall a fantastic tutor. He made me understand a subject I had no previous knowledge of, to the point where I began to enjoy physics. I would definitely recommend him to anyone needing help in this subject!
