What can I say, you cannot find a better tutor than Deirdre W.! Especially if your child requires Orton Gillingham training. Deirdre demonstrates a spectrum of exceptional skills in her work. She is patient, professional, very organized, creative in her teaching methodology, very analytical to the specific needs of her students, compassionate and supportive. Deirdre readily works together with school staff and general education teachers within the school system. It is very important that there be a unified and collaborative approach towards assisting a struggling student through this process of educational learning, and there is no question, that Deirdre is extremely capable of working as an advocate for her students in this capacity.
I am certain that you will not be disappointed with the services provided by Deirdre W. She undeniably serves as an asset towards propelling your child to the level of proficiency necessary to become an exceptional student in school.
"Great Tutor, prepared, patient, and very professional"

Ms. D, as my children call her, is a professional who "makes a difference". She's a great tutor who has helped my children immensely since we met her a year ago.
My children have progressed from not knowing all the letters of the alphabet to reading their first books confidently within a year of hard - consistent work with Ms.D.
The children enjoy the interesting and well planned classes she presents each week. My girls are both very enthusiastic about their classes each week. I'm very pleased with the results, even though when they first started I sincerely didn't see they would reach the stage they are in now. I hope I can keep Ms. D with us so she can continue her exceptional work helping my twins as they move on.
"Very patient & professional."

Deirdre has helped our daughter so much with her spelling, writing and reading. Her tutoring is very methodical and goes step by step so my daughter can build upon what she has learned. She holds our daughter accountable for her work and also keeps it fun with entertaining material. We are very grateful for the help Deirdre has provided our daughter and we have seen steady progress in the areas where she needs help.

I am so happy to have found such an enthusiastic and patient tutor in Deirdre. I was very impressed that at our very first session she came well prepared with material for my son to practice with. Deirdre has the ability to quickly and accurately determine the sources of a child's learning difficulties. In the case of my son, this allowed her to set up an individually tailored program and work through issues one at a time. Deirdre has been very impactful with helping my son master the skills he will need to learn how to successfully read. I give Deirdre my highest recommendation as a tutor.

Deirdre is an excellent tutor. She puts in the necessary prep time to gear the work toward the student's needs and to present it in a way that will be best received by the student. She really cares and wants to achieve the best possible result in my daughter's education. I highly recommend her.
"Extremely thorough in her approach!"
Vanessa from Teaneck, NJ on 2/8/13
Deirdre is clearly a very experienced, seasoned professional who gives a great deal of thought and care to her students. She does not employ a cookie cutter approach. Rather, she tailors the tutoring sessions to meet the unique needs of the child that she is working with. She works hard to engage her students, and seems to zero in on their unique interests. She provides excellent explanations on her assignments, and is open to discussing/explaining her methods and approach. She gives 100% and is deeply invested in seeing her students progress, and provides good feedback so that parents can continue to support the work she is doing at home. Thank you.
"A thoughtful, customized approach."

We are using Dierdre W. for my 4th grader for about 3 months. In a very short time, Dierdre has created a very structured and customized program. She takes the time to make sure she understands a student's weaknesses and then develops very targeted lessons to address those needs. We look forward to continuing to work with and highly recommend Dierdre W.

Deirdre W is a wonderful tutor, my daughter enjoys working with her. This is the first time that my daughter has responded well to a tutor. Deirdre demands and gets the work that is asked of my daughter. The amazing thing here is my daughter is doing her work and enjoying it. Given my experience with Dierdre, I am confident in saying she is more than capable at working well with children. Her experience as a tutor is reflected in Gia's continuous progress. If you have the opportunity to work with Deirdre as a tutor, you should take it.
