I am not a person who sugarcoats things and Blue was an awesome teacher! His assistance with Algebra 2 was the only reason I passed the class. He was patient and always had at least three different ways to show you how to work something out if you didn't get it the first time. In addition, his methods of teaching were far superior to the curriculum I was using, but he was able to take that curriculum and work with what he was given to make it work for me. If you are on the fence about working with Blue, I encourage you to give him a try.

He explained everything very clearly and I was able to pass tow math classes in one semester because of him!!

I wanted to keep this short and simple. I was heavily struggling in my 3 math classes I was taking. I quickly fell behind and didn't know what i was going to do. Thats when I found Blue. Without a single doubt in my mind he saved me more times than I would like to admit. So if you need help go to Blue and he will get you back on track in no time at all.

Blue is an amazing tutor and very friendly and helpful! I was struggling with pre calc trig and he helped me get through it without any struggle. The information and knowledge finally made sense once he walked me through it! Great guy, great tutor, and very professional! I highly recommend him!

Blue is an AMAZING tutor! I always struggle in math, especially with Calc, and he explained everything in a way that made it super to easy to understand. I was failing the class until I started working with Blue, and even a few sessions before my exam helped me so much. He is a great guy and a great tutor, I highly recommend!!

Blue is a G. Without Blue I wouldn't have passed Math 117-124 AT ALL. Honestly, Blue made math less stressful and easy to understand !

Without Blue I can say with confidence I would not have passed Matb 155. I have not taken calculus before and he made me understand it much better than my own professor. With his help I was able to get a B in this class which is a huge accomplishment. Thank you Blue!

Blue Breaks down calculus problems fully and in great detail! If you are struggling or maybe not the strongest at math Blue can help you. Easy guy to talk to and ask questions if your confused. I got 100% on all the online webworks. We went through the written practice as well. The way CSUs Math 155 Course is structured can be frustrating, I highly recommend booking an appointment with blue when you can, he makes the course less stressful! Thanks again Blue!

I cant speak more highly of Blue. He helped me pass Calc 116, allowing me to raise my grade from failing to doing considerably well. He is straight forward and fantastic at what he does. I cannot recommend him enough.

Blue is the best! I've tried multiple different tutors and Blue is the only one who is easily understandable and gets sessions done in only one hour! I wouldn't have passed my math requisites for my major without him and for that I cannot thank him enough!

Blue's tutoring for my senior in high school was beyond wonderful. He knew that Nick was motivated to graduate and willing to work hard to accomplish passing his math courses. Without Blue's guidance, I do not believe our family would be celebrating sending him to college this fall. I absolutely recommend him.

I don't ordinarily write reviews... so infrequently, in fact, I had to look up how to do it. As a non-traditional online college student who last took a math course thirty or so years ago, I find Blue's tutoring videos to be an indispensible learning tool. While a textbook and online course explain the theory behind a concept, he cuts right to the chase showing how to solve each question in plain no-nonsense language. More so, he demonstrates how to use the monstrously powerful TI-84 calculator to handle all the heavy lifting -- something I surely would not be able to figure out in a reasonable timeframe on my own. He's friendly, responsive, and customer-oriented - obvious to the observer that he loves his job and is great at it. Just a few minutes ago, I submitted my first calculus exam and got an A. Two weeks ago, I knew little about the material and feared it. Today (to my surprise) I actually enjoyed solving the exam problems. Blue, thank you so much.

Blue helped my son with Math 117, Math 118 and Math 141 at CSU and it was an amazing experience. My son felt lost and totally discouraged before he met Blue. Thanks to Blue he now has a better understanding of math and a higher self esteem. Blue is professional, kind, organized, communicative, extremely knowledgeable and able to teach math in a way that makes sense. He will follow up with you and makes you feel like someone is on your side. We highly recommend him!!

I was struggling with my math 141 class before I met Blue. I originally had an F in the class after my first exam and thought I was going to fail this class. Then my friend introduced me to Blue. Throughout the semester and countless sessions I had with Blue, he helped me turn that F into an A. Blue is one of the best tutors for any college course and is definitely worth the money. He's a professional when it comes to any kind of math and helps explain any and all means and methods for any problem. He is an empathetic and relatable guy that anyone can get along with both in and out of his tutoring sessions. There is just so many amazing things I can say about Blue and highly recommend him for any college math course.

Blue is a great tutor. He helped me so much with my calc class and is honestly the reason I am passing! Super professional and super nice! Would recommend to anyone who is struggling in their math courses. Great guy!

As a student with disabilities my learning style requires a clear, step-by-step instruction especially when it comes to math since it has always been my most challenging subject. Blue’s tutorials are easy to understand and provide a simpler way of doing math. He breaks problems down in a way that cuts time on solving—I took his pre-Calc Math 124 (entire course) tutorial and I am happy that I used his methods rather than the ones on the Pace course, they seem to make some of the problems more complicated than they have to be.*One important note: Pace does not provide instruction on how to use parts of the calculator for problems, this can lead to incorrect answers and just overall frustration, Blue is amazing for including these steps—it makes such a difference in your performance*Go with Blue!

Blue helped me immensely in getting into and through my pre-calculus classes. Highly recommend him for any of your CSU math needs!

Amazing Math tutor that really knows his stuff! Super flexible with scheduling and knows how to communicate with young adults in a great way. He is the only reason why I got through my six week calculus class without failing, seriously.

I am a non traditional college student and it has been quite some time since my last math class. Never my strongest subject, I dreaded completing the required math courses for my major. Blue was recommended to me by a friend and I am very thankful for his recommendation! Without question, Blue is the best and most helpful math tutor I have ever had. He approaches the problems by breaking them down step by step and giving you the techniques necessary to solve them with ease. I enjoyed learning from him this past semester and gaining a different perspective on math concepts in general. I Highly recommend this man!

I cannot stress enough how much this tutoring helped me through online calculus. Blue is very good at clearly explaining concepts that at first glance in lecture feel like a foreign language. If I was forced to take another math class I would use his services again.

Has a great work ethic, very kind and doesn't mind repeating or explain things in different ways to help you understand, extremely detailed notes that he sends to you for reference and practice. The price is 100% worth it. He honestly cares about tutoring and wants to help people, this man helped me get my degree, and every penny was worth it. Thank you!!!

Blue was the best math tutor! He explained calculus so well and in a way that I was able to understand. I would not have made it through calculus without him. I cannot recommend Blue enough! So happy to have found him and worked with him through the semester.

Incredible tutor, ensures you understand what's happening, as well as ensures you get the grade you are hoping for. I've used his videos for two PACE classes and both I passed seamlessly! Highly recommend to anyone who needs a little oomph or the entire class gone over!

Even with the transition of moving online in the spring semester due to COVID-19, Blue was still able to meet with me for tutor sessions virtually and was just as seamless as it was seeing him in person. By far the best tutor and took so much stress off of me. Boosted my GPA dramatically

Makes it easy and covers everything for you to be successful with completing PACE.

Blue was able to cover all the questions I had in one session each and every week with perfect accuracy! He would give you a complete and detailed breakdown for each problem and even explained previous material it you needed a push to fully understand it. He was very professional every session. Great attitude as well! I would recommend him first before anyone else.

Blue is by far the best tutor I have EVER had the pleasure of working with. He absolutely knows what he's doing and has a fantastic ability to teach math. Not only is he a great teacher, he provides amazing tools that are extremely helpful. If you need an A in your class, Blue is the man to see. I cannot thank him enough for the AMAZING job he did helping me this past semester. Highly Highly Highly recommend. He is hands down the best and worth every single penny.

Blue is hands down the best tutor for math at CSU! One session was all I needed! This guy knows his stuff!

I have struggled throughout my high school and college career catching onto math concepts as I never had a strong foundation. Blue not only helped me pass a pre requisite course in 2 DAYS, yes just TWO days, but he also was the reason I was so successful in my calculus course for engineers. During the Spring 2020 semester, we had to also transition to online learning and do everything remotely. I was so convinced I wasn't going to do well in calculus, but Blue emailed me before I even knew what to do. He had everything set up and laid out which made the transition so so smooth. When exams came around and doing them remotely, I didn't use my notes once. Blue prepared me for everything in this course, taught me the fundamentals of calculus and how to think of math in a way that made the objectives easier. I ended this semester with a very high B in calculus and ready to take on Calc 2. Blue's tutoring is the best, his skills are an investment for your own self, as I sincerely believe that tutoring in the present is so much more worth it than retaking courses. I can tell you from my personal experience of having many math tutors and knowing many people in the math department that no one teaches as well as Blue does!

Blue helped me pass MATH141 with an A. He makes concepts so clear and understandable. He is well worth the money. I had no problems with this course. Tutoring with him was worth it. I would recommend him to anyone who is worried about their math class they are taking or confused with math concepts.

Blue is easily one of the best math tutors I’ve had. He makes math simple by teaching you the easiest way to complete problems and teaching very useful calculator tips. Without Blue I could have never got through my PACE courses.

I would definitely recommend Mr Hovatter to anyone who feels they need help with math! He makes it so easy to understand and is super reliable and kind! He is amazing and definitely worth reaching out to for help! I highly recommend it!

Blue made the transition from real world to online tutoring incredibly easy. I wouldn’t have passed calc without him! Highly recommend!

Blue is an amazing math tutor! If it wasn't for him, I would not have been able to pass my Numerical Trigonometry class. He showed me great short cuts and explained how to solve the problems effortlessly. After every session with Blue I was no longer confused! He is a great asset to have to get you through your math class.

Blue is an amazing resource for math. I've used his PaCE math videos, purchased tutoring time, and his exam prep sessions. He explains the problem and what the question is really asking. Then, he shows you the easiest way to find the answer. SO worth the money.

Simply a great tutor to have if you are falling short of your personal expectations. It's really just like magic the way Blue can make you understand math so effortlessly. Very thankful and glad I chose to get help from Blue.

Blue was amazing to work with. He has tons of experience and is truly eager to help and make sure you understand. Calculus was a very difficult class for me, but with Blue's help and enthusiasm, it truly paid off. I would recommend Blue to anyone.

Blue is the Man! I owe my productive semester to this man and his impeccable methods. Blue is kind and reinforced with his methods. He takes his time with you and make sure you understand the material. Blue made MATH 141 a breeze and is worth every penny. He helped me pass and I can confidently say he is the best tutor for the money. Don't waste your time and immediately book times with him to make sure you can do as well as possible in these challenging math classes at CSU.

Blue is an amazing tutor, I have never taken a math course above college algebra before going into business calculus (MTH 141). Blue is able to explain the concepts in a simple way that makes a lot of sense and his exam prep sessions are a tremendous help on the exams. He's the best i wouldn't have done nearly as well in the class without him.

A single session with Blue is like a week's worth of CSU calculus lecture. He is a Jedi Master of breaking down the steps and processes that most professors gloss over. His tips and tricks give you the essentials and the easiest path to the final answer, he taught me tricks on my graphing calculator that I had no idea how to use before. Blue will dedicate the session to whatever you want or caters to your course needs, but he has a great idea of what the course requires from his experience tutoring for years. His test review videos are also well worth tuning in to see examples in action. You're the man Blue!

I was really worried about taking math in college as I know it is something that I have never been great at. I tried to find people who could help me but I never found someone who explained it in a way that made sense. Then I found Blue, and the way he explains things is so easy to understand and it makes your life so much easier. I was able to pass my math class which a much better grade than I would have otherwise and he helped me understand it all the way through.

I was very much struggling in the MATH 117 here at CSU on Pace math. I was not able to even complete many of the required assignments. My mom found The Math Man on google and I knew I needed to reach out and get help. After 5 sessions with him working on MATH 117 I was able to achieve an A in the course. He is very helpful and I would recommend him to anyone that needs help, HE IS THE MAN TO GO TO!!

I returned to CSU this semester after a decade hiatus, and was struggling in my first PACE course. Luckily I had a friend refer me to Blue for tutoring. He is incredibly knowledgeable about the material, and knows exactly how to explain things in a simple yet concise manner. In addition to private tutoring, I also purchased a package of his online tutoring videos which were also effective and easy to understand. Thanks to Blue I was able to ace both of my PACE classes quickly, and completely stress free. I would recommend Blue's tutoring services to anyone, regardless of math proficiency. Best money I have ever spent!

At the beginning of the semester I was struggling with my PACe courses hard, I had to take my exams multiple times to actually pass and spend HOURS in the PACe center. After hearing amazing things about Blue I finally decided to go to him and he helped me enormously! I went from spending hours on PACe each week to meeting with him once a week for an hour to go over each unit. He save my PACe grades, and is a GREAT tutor, I highly recommended Blue!

Blue is awesome. He’s so helpful and makes math feel super simple. He’s very calm, nice, and patient. I had an F in Algebra but got an 87% on my first math exam after only a few sessions. Now I currently have an A in my math class because of tutoring. His online tutoring is legit, but meeting at CSU is very nice too. He’s very flexible with schedules, responsive, and can explain any math problem to you in a way that will make you grasp the concept! He will teach you little tips and tricks and even takes notes from the session for you that you get to keep!

Blue was such a great help with my calc class. He has a great knowledge of what you need to know to pass the tests, and explains all the concepts much better than you learn them in class. I wouldn't have passed without him!

Blue is a tremendous help. He explains the Calc concepts in such a simple and easy way. He also answers any questions you have over email which has been so helpful. I highly recommend going to him for any Math help you need.

Never had a tutor with such insight on a subject. His knowledge of the material, combined with his own understanding of what you "need to know" is unmatched. An hour with him equates to 2 weeks of CSU lecture. My only complaint was that I didn't contact him earlier. Give him your money and you WILL get an A in the course. THANKS BLUE!

I can't thank Blue enough for the last minute time and attention he gave my son with his Calculus class. My son has had some learning issues and we were down to the last week and a half before the final. We did the private tutoring as well as his group class for the final. My son ended up getting a MUCH higher grade than would have been possible. My son said he made it so clear, simple and easy to understand. Thank you, thank you, thank you BLUE! :)

Blue was born to teach. Im a student-vet who hadn't done any basic algebra or calculus for 5+ years prior to college math courses. Blue was able to get me completely back up to speed with my peers in only an hour a week!

I haven't went to tutoring previously before however I needed it for Calculus as I struggled with my 3rd Calc Test. I was very nervous for my final, as I did not want to repeat the course in the Summer. I decided to invest in myself by going to Blue. He's a great tutor, who is someone that can save you hours of studying. I highly recommend him, as I got my best score after going to him twice and watching his final video review. Blue is a big part in the reason I passed calculus!

My background in math was not strong, and when it came time to take MATH 160 at CSU, I knew I had to get a tutor if I was going to survive the class. I came across Blue, and his website and raving reviews automatically made it an easy decision for me to choose him. You'll be hard-pressed to find someone else with the same background and knowledge as Blue in this course, along with the extraordinary ability to teach complex concepts in a way that actually make sense.

He is the best! I never would have gotten through math 141 without him. I highly recommend using Blue if math is something you struggle with, his test reviews are worth every penny.

Blue is an amazing tutor! If you struggle with math, or pace specifically Blue is super easy to work with and communicates the material in a super helpful way. He is easily the best tutor I’ve ever had!

Blue makes math straight forward and simple. There’s no way I would have gotten through PACE as easy as I did without him! 100% best math tutor I’ve ever had.

Blue could do this math with his eyes closed & explains it in such a simple way. I finished 3 pace units in about 10 weeks which was so nice to get it all out of the way. 20/10 recommend

Blue Hovatter was recommended to us by a CSU department head. Students will find him focused on their understanding of the material so they can pass the exams. Blue is a skilled, experienced, professional tutor; the best our student has ever had.

SERIOUSLY!! These private sessions have saved me 20+ hours worth of work each. Well worth it, and he has great tricks up his sleeve to guide you to solve each type of problem.

I've successfully completed 3 pace courses with Blue, and I would have definitely not been able to pass them without his help. I highly recommend him!

I purchased the videos for Math 125 and 126. This man has an undeniable talent for simplifying math. His videos are concise and right to the point. Typically around 3 - 5 minutes per problem.He teaches you exactly what you need to know to pass the test and nothing more. I was able to learn an entire unit of material in a few hours. If you struggle in math then his videos will be worth every penny.I can give no review regarding his private tutoring, but if it is anything as helpful as his videos then I would say five stars.

Blue is amazing! He helps break everything down in a very understandable manner. Would highly recommend!

I met with Blue regularly during the semester I took Math 141 at CSU and I can confidently say I would not have done anywhere close to good in that class without the help that I received. He knows everything you will need for each test and can explain some topics in way that are a lot easier to understand than how you learned in class. I even managed to get 100% on one of my test which I had never done before and probably wouldn't have done without the help of Blue. I would highly recommend this tutor to anyone taking the classes he tutors for, its well worth the cost!

Blue is the best! I have learning disabilities that especially affect my math skills (or lack of) and he got me through 117, 118, and 124 in a semester. I got all A’s and that’s something I’ve never been able to achieve for math. I would reccomend him to anyone who needs help with math, he is by far the best tutor I’ve had.

Blue is the sole reason I got an A in Calculus. I am not a math person and I was so stressed going into Calculus knowing I needed a B to get into the business school. He teaches everything to a standard that is so easy to follow along. With him there was no need to even go to class. I highly recommend using him as a tutor. I promise the money is so worth it. I would be failing the class if I did not have him. Math has never been so easy for me when i had him . A guaranteed A or B if you use him.
