So far my daughter who is a junior in high school has had two lessons with Molly and she has been great. She provides us with additional material regarding study skills, is really responsive to questions and seems knowledgeable in multiple subject areas. She is helping my daughter with chemistry, Latin, history and general study skills. Plus she is just a nice person! I would recommend her.

Diane has been working with one of my sons for several months now. She is helping him prepare for college by working on study skills and reading and retention. He has responded well to Diane's teaching because he can see that she cares! We are very pleased with the results so far and we have in fact now hired Diane to work with our HS son on ACT prep and study skills. I highly recommend Diane as a tutor!
