    “Haroon has applied infinite patience, a gentle approach, kindness, sensitivity and empathy to help my son complete his Grade 9 math course. He earned a final mark of 82 percent — cause for celebration! We can attribute much of this achievement to Haroon’s deft teaching skills, attention to detail, care and professionalism. Our son’s 82 percent final mark surpassed the 75 percent average and is testament to Haroon’s talent.” – Sue
