After 6 sessions with Amy, my granddaughter's reading scores went up in 6 areas. We are thrilled! Can't wait to see what she is able to do by next grading period!

"Innovative Teacher Relates Well to Children and Young Teens"
School can be frustrating and overwhelming for a child when there are roadblocks to their learning.

My training includes an intense phonics program and effective and easy to understand teaching of all subjects on the elementary and middle school level.

Angeal is a wonderful tutor. She is very organized and professional and I appreciate that in a tutor. I feel very comfortable with her and feel I'm getting my money's worth. I like the classroom feel of our session. She has lesson plans and makes sure I have assignments to work on at home. She doesn't forget and will make sure we go over my previous assingments to ensure that I'm getting it. She will go as slow as I need to in order to receive a good foundation. I would recommend her for anyone wanting to learn this difficult language. You have to be serious minded going into learn Russian. I also appreciate her incorporating Russian culture into our lessons and will be using videos also into her lesson plans. I also look forward to our sessions and really feel I'm getting a good foundation in learning Russian. Thank you Angeal for all your help.

Ginger is absolutely wonderful to work with. She has been working with our son following poor results on admission testing. After just a few sessions with Ginger, our son improved his score so significantly he was accepted into school. Ginger is incredibly patient. We have seen great improvements in our son's ability and even more important his self-confidence. Her constant encouragement and positive reinforcement along with skills building is a great combination that produced results. We will continue to work with her over the summer before school starts. I would highly recommend Ginger.

Catalina has demonstrated a very good method of teaching skills and does never give up.
When I first met Catalina I did not know what to expect from having a tutor come to my house and teach me Spanish however Catalina soon proved to be worth every penny. Catalina is very practical oriented and has many different approaches to teaching both young and old students.
My Spanish skills have improved greatly since Catalina started teaching me.
It is a pleasure working with her and I can only give her the highest remark.
I highly recommend her as a tutor.

""Experienced Educator" Spanish all school levels and adults"
I love teaching reading/ phonics skills at early age. And because students who are exposed to reading before preschool are more likely to do well in all facets of formal education, I would like to be part of that foundation. Engagement plays an important role in learning any subject. That is the way I feel when I teach my children phonics/ reading skills. ... More
