My girls felt so much better with geometry and their confidence was regained. I had her come back for a second time the same week to keep their confidence, even their math teacher was impressed with their improvement and was able to see how much they had learned and understood. Now we just have to keep it up. A little expensive but well worth it, Andrea is definitely my girls' "life saver," thank you. Will continue to use her.
