My daughter - 8 years - has been learning a lot from Laurie in little time. Laurie has been great in teaching her and comes ALWAYS prepared for the lesson with techniques, learning tricks, and material. We are very glad we met Laurie and hope to continue with her for a long long time. Thanks Laurie.

Mary is fantastic! She really helped my daughter with her reading home work, she is very experienced and knows exactly how to teach, with lots of encouragement and parental involvement. She has a passion for teaching and that is an invaluable trait! She brought her own materials, understood her learning needs, and worked patiently with my daughter so that she could absorb and understand the material. Not only this but she was flexible enough to provide all the time we needed for my daughter's assignment. She is wonderful and I highly recommend her as a tutor for any child or adult regardless of whether they need major skill building or only a little help.
She is definitely the right tutor for my daughter and we highly recommend her.

If you are looking for a tutor who truly cares and knows their stuff, then Miss Akeeka is the one!!! She has been an absolute Godsend in my life. In about 3 weeks, she took a smart yet insecure graduate nursing student and turned them into a REGISTERED NURSE!! THAT'S RIGHT! I AM A STATE CERTIFIED R.N.!! With the help of God and Akeeka, I would NOT have been able to accomplish this goal. She showered me with confidence, knowledge (along with a structured schedule to follow LOL) and gave me the nudge I needed to conquer my boards and I did it. Akeeka...I thank you from the depths of everything that I am for all of your help, wisdom and confidence. I thank you. My fiance thanks you. My daughter thanks you. My family thanks you. I am forever grateful!
BOOK HER! YOU WILL NOT REGRET IT! If you are willing to put WORK, Akeeka is the ONLY choice in my book!
