Very happy with Lorraine’s expertise and quality of work. During the first lesson, she correctly identified my child's weak points and created a customized improvement plan for him to follow. After 4-5 lessons, the child showed a full understanding of the proposed “template” and proved it by receiving the full credit on the ELA benchmark test. We will continue with the sessions to reinforce the acquired knowledge.
I highly recommend Lorraine to those preparing for the ELA test or anyone who’s simply looking for improvement.

Lorraine has been working with my child on a weekly basis. My child is struggling with reading and language basics. Although we have just started our sessions and there is still a lot of work down the road for us. I am very satisfied with the services she is providing for my child.

Lorraine has been working with my five-year-old son for the past two months, and already my husband and I have noticed a marked improvement in his vocabulary and pronunciation. Moreover, he is able to articulate his thoughts much more clearly and expressively. Lorraine's always a pleasure to deal with, and I would highly recommend her to any parent seeking a tutor who is excellent with children.
Ms. Lorraine focused in quickly on what my kid had to work on and is patient with him from week to week (believe me, he needs a lot of patience). She has materials and homework well organized and, importantly, challenges him every lesson.
It's been 3 weeks but thanks to Ms. Lorraine, I'm sure the "Writing Summer Camp" I set up for my kid will pay dividends.
Lorraine is always on time and ready. She comes with a lesson plan and ready to work with my son. In these 3 weeks, my son has gained more confidence in writing and he remember her advice when completing the homework that Lorraine provides. I'm really happy about these results and looking for our future lessons. My son is reaching his writing potential and comprehension faster, thanks to Ms. Lorraine as an ally in this process.
My son's first session with Lorraine was very productive. She came prepared with the necessary materials for his reading and writing assignment. I would highly recommend her.
We had a second lesson with Lorraine, she is wonderful! Patient, caring, great tutor. She works with my son's needs, and he is very comfortable with her.
Lorraine has been working with my 8-year-old son only a short while. She is very patient and thinks out of the box. She comes up with ways to help my son complete tasks with positive and innovative reinforcement. Lorraine reinforced work with rewards during his session which brings focus back to task at hand in a timely manner. My son draws really well, and she has taken that task and has made Nathaniel enjoy writing comics into his session. He has written a story in his DS by himself. This may seem minute, however, my son would get so worked up about it prior to meeting Loraine. The end result was everyone was stressed and it would take forever. I look forward to continuing working with her to increase his reading and writing skills.
Ms. Lorraine is a very patient person. She really helps our son to improve his writing skills and doing homework in the right way. Thanks to her for all her efforts.

In most cases, tutors gain approval in a subject by passing a proficiency exam. For some subject areas, like music and art, tutors submit written requests to demonstrate their proficiency to potential students. If a tutor is interested but not yet approved in a subject, the subject will appear in non-bold font. Tutors need to be approved in a subject prior to beginning lessons.
