She is friendly, professional, dependable, highly articulate, extremely thorough in her lesson summaries, and prompt in her delivery of those summaries. Our son is very bright, but on the autism spectrum, so standardized testing is a challenge due to the wording of problems. Joya has figured out how to teach a thinker like him and he is showing enthusiasm and progress. She assigns homework and each session he feels as if he understands the wording of the questions better.

My son, who has high functioning autism, began his SAT preparation with the knowledge he achieved in public schools and Khan Academy. He scored a 690 on math on his June 2019 exam. He then dedicated much more time during the summer using Khan and practice books but he actually stayed with the exact same score as before on his August 2019 exam. He was so frustrated when he saw his scores. Then I realized I needed to find help for him because he wanted to just give up.
