It is with great sadness that we prepare to say goodbye to Dr. Andrea!
Both my boys have met with Dr. Andrea weekly for almost four years, sometimes twice a week and sometimes even in the summertime. Due to a job relocation we are preparing to move and we are more than a little heartbroken to leave Dr. Andrea behind! She is much more than an amazing, compassionate, knowledgeable and supportive tutor, she has become an integral part of our family and the upcoming separation is going to be very difficult for us.
We began our long-standing relationship when my oldest child, then a kindergartner, couldn't decode reading and decided he would never succeed! After months of us parents struggling with this, Dr. Andrea promptly stepped in and solved the issue in a heartbeat... now a third grader, my son is not only a confident and accomplished reader, but most importantly LOVES to read. Reading is fun!
Once the initial challenge was overcome, Dr. Andrea proved invaluable with so many other challenging aspects of school learning: math, geometry, grammar, spelling and so so much more. My son now loves school, does his homework on the double with never any argument and is currently a talented student in one of NJ's top achieving schools.
Dr Andrea also helped with our second child's challenges, mostly behavioral and associated with poor concentration. If we could pack Dr. Andrea and take her away with us, we would!
Excellent tutor (Review submitted 11/30/2012)
I highly recommend Dr Andrea R: not only is she exceedingly qualified as a reading specialist, but she also has great personal skills when dealing with young students, such as abundant patience and listening abilities. Above all, she is an exceptional self-confidence builder.
