Pamela is great with my daughter. My daughter is very ADHD and very hard to get to concentrate, but she does very well with my child and is helping her a lot with reading!
I have had several tutors unsuccessfully try to gain the attention and trust of my 10-year-old ADHD daughter in the past year. Until we met Pamela, math had been a complete nightmare. My daughter enjoys going to her tutoring sessions with Pamela. Pamela is able to break everything down so that she understands. She did this by back tracking to basic fundamentals that my daughter was lacking understanding in. She has been so patient and positive with my daughter and is really helping with her overall confidence. So happy that we found her as our tutor!!!
So far we have loved Pamela. We've been with her a month now and I think we can see improvement, even in attitude! Thanks.
Ms. Pam has done a wonderful job with our daughter. She is very understanding and her lessons enable the student succeed. She is very pleasant and punctual. We are blessed to have her tutor our daughter. I would highly recommend Ms. Pam.
My son has been taking lessons from Pamela for only a short time now but we have already seen tremendous strides in his writing. The tools she has taught him are so useful and he can easily recall them in class and during testing. I wish we would have found her sooner!
Has helped build up the confidence in our daughter to go from a "B" ready level at beginning of year to an "A" halfway through the year. Very patient and understanding of her needs.
Pamela took the time and patience to really find out where our daughter needed the most help. My daughter loved her and is actually excited and looking forward to working with her tutor! That is a huge improvement and a great blessing to us.
My son has been tutored by Pamela for roughly the past 6 months. Initially, we were only going to do some tutoring throughout the summer to prepare him for 3rd grade; however because of the exceptional results we began to see from tutoring, we continued to keep it up throughout the school year. It is evident that Pamela has really taken the time to listen to my thoughts and concerns about my son and his needs. She has been and continues to be an active communicator with me regarding his progress, attitude, and overall experience. She has reached out to his teachers regarding his assignments and projected outlook for the weeks to come. My son has gained a confidence in the classroom he did not have before. He is the first to speak up instead of hiding out and trying to be avoided. He is genuinely excited when he brings home a test grade he didn't know he was capable of making. He has an overall change of attitude when it comes to school. I attribute all of these profound changes to Pamela and her tutoring style. I appreciate the fact that he is not forced to sit at a desk with only a pen and paper to work with. Pamela is constantly changing things up for him, offering board games, computer games, and other various nontraditional methods of learning. She is truly concerned about my son and strives to make sure what she is doing is working for him. Thank you Pamela!
I have been working with Pamela for a few weeks now with my English Comp assignments. She is very attentive and always makes time to review my assignments. I scored 10/10 on my last assignment she tutored me on. I would give her 5 stars all day long. I would recommend her to anyone and she is a pleasure to work with.
I have a third grader who started off the year high A's but now is low B's. We found Pam and have had a few sessions. She is always prepared and has my daughter excited about learning. She covers concepts that my daughter is struggling with and has contacted her teacher to better understand what those are. I am planning on continuing through the summer to keep her skills up for the Fourth grade. Pam always returns calls, texts and emails within a few hours at most. I would highly recommend her. My daughter grades have all gone up -- 4 A's and a couple of B's much better than she was doing. Thanks Pam!
Pamela has been very patient with my kids and I am very pleased with her willingness to help. She is helping with school work and giving awesome tips on how to get organized. This will help with improving grades too. We appreciate her very much!!
Dear Pamela, Thank God I have finally found the perfect tutor for my ADD son! When I was looking through the profiles of tutors, I was looking for someone special, that I thought could help me get through to my 9 year old son before its too late and he completely shuts down on school? And when I read Pamela P.'s profile, I was really impressed and she stuck out on the page from the start. And then after the first session with my son, I was even more amazed at how well she handled him, and had him focused for 2 whole hours with out a glitch? Wow, now I knew that she was the one that could get his attention and make learning fun for him! She was awesome! Now after the second session, he is wanting to learn and play the computer math games all the time! It's really a 190 degree turn around for him. Thank you Pamela for helping us in one of the most critical times in my son's life. I really believe with her help and patience and knowledge he will make it through the 3rd grade now. And continue to want to learn and grow! He had almost given up, he hated school and didn't want to even want to go, because he was different than all the rest of the kids! Until last week, his teacher called me to let me know he made a 100 on his reading test! And only 3 kids in the whole class made a 100!! Thank you Pamela for giving him the confidence and the want to again! I would recommend you to any mother who need some serious help with their child!!! Thank you again! You have been a God send to this family!!!
Pamela was our math tutor this summer for our 9 year old daughter. Pamela's webpage on WyzAnt was very impressive and with her background in teaching and special needs, we knew she would be the kind of professional we needed for preparation for 4th grade. We chose to drive to Arlington rather than having someone close to home for the level of expertise. Pamela was always early to each tutoring session. She was always well prepared for each lesson and never wasted any time during the session. Pamela is very soft spoken and kind which was perfect for my child as she listens more when a teacher is not overbearing. Pamela has great skills at keeping a child focused and knows when to take a break if needed. She went above and beyond by making sure my daughter not only reviewed 3rd grade math and tried to solidify those skills. She also introduced many of the core items they will be covering in 4th grade like pre-algebra, roman numerals, division (which we touched on in 3rd but had trouble grasping) and much more. I not only highly recommend her to anyone with a child that needs focus in math but will use her in the future to keep my daughter's skills moving forward so she does not get behind. A+ is the grade Pamela gets from this mother of two. I thank her from the bottom of our heart for starting our new year off on the right foot.
I was very impressed with Pamela and felt very comfortable leaving my child. I appreciated her interest by listening to my concerns. I feel that she will be a great asset in my daughters learning process. My daughter really liked her and felt comfortable with her.
