I have four boys (from 8th grade to college) and they have all benefitted from your tutoring sessions. You helped them understand math in a different way and gave them confidence in learning new math skills. Your tutoring sessions has resulted in my children getting amazing grades in math, confidence in learning new concepts in math and loving the subject. Thank you for everything, you are an exceptional teacher!
This is the most patient best program out there, if you are struggling, been out of school for a while, need basic math or just need to brush up on math, then I definitely suggest Adrian she is highly recommended I pass my math teasv6 because of Adrian program it really helped me in my math.
Good morning! Austin really enjoyed his last social studies session. Aleyah was extraordinarily pleasant, engaging and supportive. They developed an outline for the assignment touching on key facts so that Austin could use thereafter to assist him.Also, she provided him with resources to augment his research. She was outstanding! Austin will see her again next week.
When my son was in the 8th grade, he was struggling with Algebra 1. I contacted Diverse Interactive Learning/Math Does Matter for help. The tutor was very helpful and patient with my son. My son learned new math skills to help him be successful in math. My son passed Algebra 1. He was able to take those skills he learned at Diverse Interactive Learning/Math Does Matter to help him with math in high school. I would highly recommend Diverse Interactive Learning/Math Does Matter to all parents looking for help for their children.
I often post my son’s athletic accomplishments however Academics is priority #1 in our household huge #Thanks goes to Poet Alum Adrian Anisa & her company Math Does Matter LLC. for working with my little guy….6th grade in the fall #Proud #FutureEngineer#ScholarAthlete.
Sr. Adrian is a fantastic math tutor. My daughter always struggled in math and since Sr. Adrian has helped her with some of the key foundational concepts it seems like this year she is doing so much better in this subject. I really think Sr. Adrian helped her with the foundation and made her appreciate and begin to enjoy math. Now she is doing so much better that she hardly needs to be tutored thanks to this service.
Thank you so much for this incredible service!
Math is his strongest subject right now. He said he has not started the Pythagorean theory in class yet but I believe that sustaining his “math Mind” with you over the summer has improved his math at school.

Thank you so much Adrian for all of your hard work and attentiveness with Jayla, and helping her to be a strong confident student. Math was her struggle and now she is one of the top students in her class and knows math from several grade levels. My fear was that she would fall behind, but with your summer session and then individual sessions she is ahead and focused. I thank you often and I will continue to support you.
Wa laikum Salaam Sis Adrian,
Najla has been mantaining an “A”in Honors Algebra 1, Al Hamdulillah! Your tutoring sessions helped build her confidence. Shukran for all your help.

I was very apprehensive about tutoring online. Nonetheless, it was the best experience and I cannot tutor any other way. Adrian is kind and patient as she facilities instruction. Not to mention, extremely knowledgeable she makes sure you understand the formulas and strategies to complete math problems. I learned so much and feel so confident moving forward. She actually made math painless for me. I highly recommend her. She is absolutely amazing!
During my days in high school, I was struggling with my classes. I had a hard time understanding the topics that were discussed in my class. But ever since I found a tutor through Diverse Interactive Learning, I was not only able to understand my classes but pass them with good grades as well. I was definitely satisfied with the tutors that Diverse Interactive Learning provided to me and greatly appreciated it. So, if you need any type of assistance or need a tutor, this is the right place to look at!

Excellent, excellent, and very patient tutor!!
Thank you Adrian Anisa for the last-minute tutoring session! The final grade is a “B”!
Sr Adrian is a great mathematician and tutor. She makes math easy. Cube roots were explained in a very easy manner. Thank you!
Starting college, I was really struggling with Pre-Calculus. After a couple of sessions with a tutor from Diverse Interactive Learning, I was able to understand the topic and subject much better. Because of this, I ended up getting an A!
After 25 years of not being in a classroom, I found myself taking the enrolling in an Intermediate Algebra course, not remembering anything from high school, and trying to stay afloat in a fast paced class. Had it not been for the tutoring received from Adrian, I would not have been able to pass the course. I had tried different online resources, none of which met my needs. I needed one-on-one tutoring with someone I could connect with that could meet me where I was, and Adrian was it. Adrian definitely has a dedication and passion for mathematics, and a gifted teaching style. As an adult learner, Adrian found a unique way of tutoring me as she broke down the problems in a way I was able to understand and make sense out of them. Through God’s good graces, Adrian’s patience, dedication, love of math and tutoring, and in my application, collectively, I was able to pass my Intermediate Algebra course with an A. WOOHOO!!!! THANK YOU, ADRIAN!!!!!
The session was AWESOME!!!! I’m looking forward to learning and growing more.
