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.
My daughter struggled in grasping the concepts she was taught in 1st grade in elementary math: addition, subtraction, place value, time and money. In just a short period of time (4 lessons), she has made a vast improvement, and is beginning to complete tasks on her own without help. Danaya has helped her build the foundation that was lacking in 1st grade, giving her the confidence and praise to be successful, so she isn't left behind when she enters 2nd grade this Fall.
Soon after with my son being comfortable with her we started 2 hour long sessions twice a week. We have continued that to present time. My son's improvement has been amazing and at the end of 2nd grade he was reading independently and at the level he should be. By continuing the sessions it has kept him confident about his reading and writing, which has given him a great start for 3rd grade. Tina has been flexible, reliable and respectful to my child's needs. I greatly recommend her.
