Sharon was a pleasure to work with. She is highly intelligent, gifted, and very professional. She not only worked with my daughter (who has a learning disability) but also with me so that I would better be able to help my daughter learn.
I found Sharon to be flexible in her scheduling, even allowing for last minute changes in appointment times. She was easy to contact, and returned my calls promptly.
She also has a lovely personality! Although we are no longer in need of a tutor at this time, I would hire Sharon again in a heartbeat. I highly recommend her!

Anna tutors our adult daughter. Born in Russia and speaking only Russian until age 4, our daughter also lives with the challenges of an early brain injury. As we are not Russian speakers, she lost her Russian over time. Now she is eager to regain some of that ability, but we were reluctant to seek out a tutor, fearing that the attempt might result in frustration for the tutor and disappointment for our daughter. And then we met Anna, who has been amazing and a real gift for our daughter. Patient and fun and so creative in her approach to connecting with her pupil, Anna reaches her in a way we never expected. Now each week our daughter eagerly recounts what she and Anna have done during her lesson and what she has learned. The success she feels is priceless, and we are very grateful to Anna.

Thanks to my 3 non-consecutive semester... ... More
