Virginia tutored two of my children each at a different grade level. After the first session both said they had a light turned on by Virginia and they got it! She asks the right questions and engages the kids as partners in the solution. I highly recommend Virginia.

Katie has tutored my son for about 3 months now and has done a wonderful job. She is so enthusiastic about teaching kids biology. You can tell it truly is her passion. She has a way of keeping it fun and interesting so my son can relate and learn very quickly. She does it by using examples, diagrams and many times finding u tube videos to watch. She goes above and beyond.
I highly reccomend her to anyone whose son or daughter might be struggling or not understanding a concept.
