His 1st grade teacher said there was no way he would get to grade level before 2nd grade. He is now going into 2nd grade reading...slowly but reading! His teacher was amazed at his progress. He would not have been able to accomplish this with just home help. Belinda has been so patient and encouraging to my son. Her teaching methods are individualized specifically to his learning style. She has years of experience and I am privileged to have her tutor my son.
She is a business professional and does an amazing job at delivering an encouraging learning experience, for my son. 1/8/2014: Tonight was my son's final lesson with Carole before his SSAT, which will be in two days. We feel so fortunate that we had Carole and my son is feeling a lot more confident in his ability to perform well in the exam. couldn't ask for a better tutor!! She genuinely cares about her students and is truly committed and encouraging!!
There was a good deal of interaction which I was comfortable with. I think we can all remember classes where the teacher stood and lectured for the whole period - Malone is not like that. We discussed the concepts of line, shapes, movement, etc. All in all this was the most enjoyable and educational art class I have ever taken. I look forward future classes. He has put a charge in me that had been lacking for years. I would recommend Malone to anyone who wants to be a better artist.
