    Testimonials

    • As my tutor, Dr. Fidler worked with me on developing my analytical and writing skills. My confidence as as a writer increased and I began to look forward to writing. Dr. Fidler has continued to mentor me through my time as a scholar athlete at Seton Hall University. Thanks to her guidance and support, I am much more confident in the classroom and excited about continuing to pursue my academic interests. ~Kaylyn S. It is not an exaggeration to say that Dr. Fidler has been invaluable to me as a tutor and mentor. To call her my mentor is accurate but also understates the enormous contribution she has already made to my academic work and to my overall confidence. She has done everything from helping me edit and re-edit numerous papers and applications, prepare for class presentations, strategize for both short-term and long-term academic goals, and so much more. She never rushes and always takes my concerns seriously. ~ Jeremy L.
