“Student is responding well and has shown definite improvement in the areas of focus.”

“I had a very positive response. Students were happy, engaged and excited.”

“I work with multiple students. They seem extremely pleased with the attention and help they are getting. Even though they are 7th or 8th graders, they have been quite positive and complimentary about the tutoring help. I enjoy them!”

“It takes them awhile to build trust, but now I see them wanting help with the tutoring in many cases.”

“I see more individual improvement when I work one-on-one with some students who aren't keeping up or need extra help.”

“I had a student inform me he'd never be able to learn to read. I told him

"I believe you can learn". Not only did he start reading he surpassed our expectations and is doing very well in school.”
