Our son excelled in school, though he struggled with reading all through elementary and part of middle school. We always had "reading" tutors for him but none were sensitive to his problems and were never able to address them. Jennifer introduced our son, 13, to the Wilson method. Week by week he learned new methods to decode words and become more fluent in reading. It has been miraculous to see so much improvement in so few months when we are so used to our son stumbling along. My only regret is that we didn't find Jennifer years ago. Jennifer is very focused, organized and methodical. She recognized our sons weaknesses immediately after hearing him read aloud and she set a goals and reached them with him. She was encouraging, understanding and interested in him. Although he pretty much hated reading because it was so frustrating for him, he liked and trusted Jennifer because from the very beginning she shared the tools that opened up the world of reading to him.
Jennifer did a fantastic job of helping our 10 year old organize his thoughts on two essays for middle school applications. He was very frustrated working on it at home and the tutoring environment and Jennifer's calm, effective approach gave him the structure and support he needed to power through both an essay about himself for ICE and a topical essay for Poly Prep. He was able to easily complete both essays at home without tears using the clear outlines Jennifer helped him to create in his own words.
Jennifer is always very patient with my children. Her lessons are tailored to each child's needs. She enhances their strengths and works on areas of academic need. I would recommend Jennifer to parents looking for a caring and skilled educator to help their children.
Jennifer is not just a tutor -- she's the instructor that you want in the classroom teaching your child. She has a knack for bringing out the best in children. She was extremely gentle and patient with my eight year old son who because of a speech and language deficit, struggled in ELA. She tailored her lessons in a way that always grasped his attention and helped him retain information. I was pleasantly surprised when he was able to explain what they had worked on at the end of each session because he had never been able to do that prior to his sessions with her. She incorporated art and interactive activities that made the sessions more meaningful to him. After his first session with her (and a scoop of ice cream), he exclaimed that he had the best day ever! When we missed a session he expressed disappointment and communicated to me that he missed her. With her, learning wasn't a chore as it had been in the past. She's very thorough and even went as far as connecting with his teachers during the school year so that she could gain a better understanding of what his needs were. What more could you ask for in a tutor?
