"Great Tutor and Very Professional "

- Gayle from Philadelphia, PA on 12/13/13

So enjoyed working with this client who was personable; highly receptive to my suggestions and advice; and helpful in clarifying subject-specific questions (e.g., legal terminology). I also enjoy this type of work: editing and rewriting, as required, online from home. It is a highly effective and cost-efficient method in approaching this type of project (i.e., ensuring that papers and presentations are well-written, grammatically correct, and free of any errors or inconsistencies). I found the work interesting and challenging, so while I took the extra time (as I always do) to ensure that I did the requisite research to make certain I was using correct terminology and punctuation as well as any specialized treatment (such as italics) required by the profession, it is indicative of the standard of work I deliver. I did make copious notes to client to bring her attention to 1)any legal issue/treatment about which I was not completely certain, so that she could be the final judge of corrections needed and 2) repetitious errors so that she could learn and correct for future writing. I made certain to prioritize her primary concerns, producing a final project that met the criteria established. It was very rewarding to learn that client was so pleased with my work. I would love to work with her again at any time. I also wish to do much more of this type of online editing/rewriting, so her testimonial was much appreciated.

"Trisha Is An Excellent Tutor"

It was a pleasure assisting this student to prepare for his SAT. It is always a tutor's biggest reward to have a student express that he or she is learning. When your son expressed that he would like to continue for an additional hour during one of our sessions, it was clear that he was not only engaged, but also that he was motivated to continue learning. Needless to say I trust that all the advice, suggestions, and educational assistance I gave helped him significantly on the day of his exam.

"Trisha, great start!"

This student is just delightful ~ I feel as if I'm getting as much reward from our sessions as I trust he is! Am continuing to research and print creative and entertaining worksheets for him; he loves just looking through what I brought for him, trying to select his favorite on which to start! But he continues to like all of them, so it's just a joy to watch this charming child associate joy with learning. He is highly receptive to praise, positive reinforcement, and encouragement so I employ a lot of all during our sessions. It is definitely proof that all of these positive approaches are the most successful tools in motivating a student to learn as well as helping them associate joy with learning, reading, and writing which will go far in helping him improve. Grandfather is a wonderful provider of support as well as love, attention, and care. He is very involved with student's education which is invaluable, and he assists me significantly in keeping me apprised on what motivates or effects students so I am better able to help student improve his language skills.

"Great Tutor"

- Vasu from Norristown, PA on 11/30/13
Trisha replied on 12/1/2013:

Your daughter is a delightful, intelligent, motivated, and committed student. She is eager to learn, receptive to my instruction and suggestions, and I have no doubt that she will one day be attending the college of her choice. She readily accepts advice as to how best continue work on materials I have given her that will assist her in formulating her thoughts, devising an outline to best express her ideas, and finally constructing a grammatically-correct and well-written essay, which is one of her primary goals in preparing for her SSAT/ISEE exams. It has already been a pleasure to work with your daughter, and I look forward to continuing to assist her in improving her writing skills.

"First official lesson- great"

- Victor from Glenside, PA on 10/29/13
Trisha replied on 11/23/2013:

Student has been a delight to tutor and parents are very supportive and highly receptive to my suggestions. They gave me permission to contact student's teachers, which proved very helpful as I can stay on top of: assignments that are due, any problem areas that still need to be addressed, current material being covered in class, and also be made aware of noted improvements. Actually, student has improved a complete grade level since our work together.
