If you are looking for a tutor who is superior in teaching, eager, compassionate, organized, an excellent communicator and truly an advocate for her students, I strongly recommend Kathleen. My 18 year son has been working with Kathleen and describes her as "awesome." He is so motivated to attend his sessions and upbeat when he finishes. As a parent, I am thrilled! Thank you Kathleen for your motivation and interest in finding the best in your students.
"She is amazing! "

I have been tutored by Ms. W. for a couple of months now, and she helped me immensely! When I first took the SAT in November, my weakest point was the writing section. We spend a lot of time on writing essays for the SAT. Ms. W. is very knowledgeable in this area. She has a lot of patience and is willing to answer all your questions. She gives me helpful advice and tips on the reading and writing section, and I feel much more confident about the test. On the June SAT, my scores improved significantly. Out of the three sections, my writing score was the highest! I am surprised by my progress and will continue to work for my final SAT in October and college applications.

She is the perfect english tutor! Kathleen started working with my daughter after she had already taken the SAT once. After reviewing the test, she identified my daughter's weakness and gave her several tips and ways she could improve in that area. She continually sends us e-mails with websites and information regarding the topics they are working on. After just a few sessions, my daughter's SAT score improved considerably. She also helped her prepare for the ACT and will be assisting her with the college application essays.

Kathleen has been great. As this was our first experience with a tutor, we didn't know hat to expect. My 17-year old found the time he spent with her extremely helpful in preparing for his second round of SATs. I'd highly recommend Kathleen.

Kathleen is a tutor who is very knowledgeable in her field. She is also aware that students have different learning potential. We were in need of an SAT tutor and ACT tutor with only a short amount of time to prepare for these tests. Kathleen returned my e-mail promptly and we got started right away. She was very punctual, very prepared and provided great feedback after each session. My daughter had 2 two hour sessions before the SAT test and she improved both her reading and writing score by 30-40 points. I would highly recommend Kathleen as my daughter would also recommend her. She was very comfortable with Kathleen and felt she really understood how to teach the right concepts.

Kathleen has done a tremendous job working with my son. She has worked to identify my son's areas for improvement and has been instrumental in encouraging both he and myself during this time. She has provided me with specific ways in which to work with his teachers. Over the last few weeks she's devised a thorough plan on how to assist my son by "reteaching" him how to read effectively. I am confident that with Kathleen's assistance my son will become a stronger reader. We are both lucky to have her.

Kathleen W. was a fantastic tutor for my teenage daughter. She was very qualified, prepared, nice and comfortable to be with. She helped proofread and organize her college application essays. My daughter now feels confident with her work. I recommend her to anyone. If we find we need a little extra help in the future, she will be the one that we will call.
"She gets me"

After the first meeting with Kathleen, my son said, "She gets me!" This was such a relief. After two sessions, we are thrilled with the work that Kathleen is doing. She has worked on English papers, SAT review and writing composition. Our son has made tremendous strides. He likes to have his work done ahead of his tutoring session so that the time spent working with Kathleen produces the best outcome. She is a pleasure to work with and I highly recommend her!

Kathleen is very professional and prompt. She worked with my two high school students separately to prepare them for the English portion of the ACT. She immediately had ideas of how to best meet their needs and tried to find ways to make the reading portion more interesting. My son and daughter reported to me that she is very knowledgeable and patient and is able to explain things well. My son in particular needed some extra work on vocabulary and Kathleen had a stack of flashcards made after our first session. We are looking forward to working with her further on creating essays for college applications. I would highly recommend Kathleen!
