Pat tutored my daughters this summer about 5 times each. My kindergartener-going-to-1st-grade had needed some extra help in reading during her K year and we wanted to make sure she continued to progress over the summer. And we were looking for some math and reading exercises for my older daughter (going into 3rd grade).
Pat connected with the girls right away and they really enjoyed their time with her. She had worksheets, books, and both homemade and store-bought games to keep them engaged. She lent us books and games between each session so we could review at home. My K daughter is now reading at the level she needs for Nov/Dec of her 1st grade year, which is great progress. And I can send both girls back to school knowing that they have continued to learn this summer! We would highly recommend Pat.

Heather did something with Lisa that I didn't think could be done. Not only did she help her learn and understand a math class that I didn't think she was capable of handling, but she will likely get a B grade or better. I thought even with a good tutor that she still would not be able to pass this course. And although it is a very difficult thing (for me at least) to pay $50 an hour, it was WELL worth the cost. Not only was she an excellent tutor, but also worked with a very flexible schedule to accommodate Lisa. I am extremely happy with what Heather did and would recommend her to anyone. Job extremely well done. Thank you very, very much.
