Malea worked with our 12/13yr old son who had serious reading issues including problems with phonics. We had tried everything before finding her and what a difference her tutoring has made! Our son was challenged sounding out words, and at his advanced age, finding a phonics program that wasn't just for younger kids was impossible. Malea was able to develop a program as time progressed based on his specific problem areas she identified each lesson. She used a wide range of resources she knew about and searched diligently for new resources to help him. Not only did his phonics improve, his reading out loud skills improved and he grew more and more confident each week. Other areas she helped him with were reading comprehension, test taking skills, and organizational skills. After every lesson she gave us excellent feedback and tips that we could try to help him between lessons. Malea's care for her students is very apparent and it pays off each and every lesson.
Very patient and knows her stuff!! She explains in a way that is very understanding and it is really helpful, everyone needs a tutor like her!
I really like Bobbie, she has already helped me bring my math grade up. She is very helpful and kind. I love working with her.
