A perfect match!

Thank you for your help with Billy, he felt so good after your session! He gets frustrated with us when we try and help or guide, but it looks like he really related to you which I am so thankful for. Thank you so much! Heather

Warm and welcoming

My daughter felt comfortable instantly and Taina’s outgoing style put me at ease right away. My daughter feels more comfortable and ready for her test tomorrow!

Kimberly, 1 lesson with Taina

Great service

She was great with Kyle. We are just not able to work out scheduling conflicts with Kyles weekly schedule. I will talk with Kyle to figure out our next step and likely reach out to Wyzant in the future.

great connection with my daughter

I didn't sit in on the lesson with my daughter and Taina, but afterwards they seemed to have had a good connection and Taina was able to help my daughter with the issues that she was having with her current problems in math.
