WHAT RHODES’S STUDENTS ARE SAYING
"Rhodes taught me a lot and helped me get through many difficult subjects! He helped me make connections across subjects which changed the way I think about the material. I appreciate how he also challenged me to be a self-learner and was always willing to answer my questions."
"Rhodes was an extremely methodical and organized tutor and did a fantastic job of staying in touch throughout the week to get ready for our sessions. I was blown away by how much he knew on a very deep level but even more so by how he could explain it well too."
