Suzanne is very patient, and I am a slow learner. So far, problems in resolving some confusion have popped up on my pc, revealing formatting that neither Suzanne nor I had ever encountered before.

Michelle was very professional. She is excellent at communicating with the parent and providing feedback. She is very transparent about her goals and how she plans to accomplish them. My child was definitely comfortable with her and enjoyed his experience. She comes across as extremely capable and knowledgeable. I appreciate her willingness to travel to us and do what she can to prepare my child for kindergarten. Look forward to future sessions.

I was shocked at how fast the hour passed. I was anxious at the start. Heidi praised me on my strengths and found my weaknesses. Corrections were given in such a nice and matter of fact way that I was never made to feel uncomfortable or awkward.
