Likewise, Ms. Alison's experience as a former AP exam grader allowed me a rare and invaluable insight on how I was doing, and more importantly, what I needed to work on. Most notably, I was able to practice the informal speaking portions of the test that I had almost no opportunity to in school. By the time of my last lesson, I felt significantly more ready to tackle the exam. Thank you, Ms. Alison! It was a pleasure. :)
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.
