Carrie always checked in with him to see how he was doing, whether inquiring about his grades, his test scores or the outcome of his hockey game or golf match. I believe that by Carrie taking these extra moments to connect personally with my son, she was able to build a trusting, respectful relationship and he was more invested in his own learning. Because of her ability to engage with my son, she was able to call him on his "bad" habits light heartedly without blaming or shaming him.
He helped me almost immediately improve my swing. He gave me about five things to work on. He also suggested some ways e.g. club selection, to lower my golf score.
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!!
