Caring, Passionate, & Dedicated Tutor

My daughter has been working with Jackie for two days now, and immediately I saw the passion and dedication that she embodies in her work with children. My daughter warmed up to Jackie instantaneously. In two days, I can’t even begin to explain the weight that has been lifted, knowing that my daughter is in phenomenal care, and getting the quality help that she so deserves. I promise, you won’t go wrong in choosing Jackie for your child’s tutoring needs.

Knowledgable and Patient Tutor

Jacquelyn was very helpful. I had a test for Trignometry and wanted to review my study guide and practice problems. After reviewing with Jacquelyn she cleared all of the questions that I had, she was patient with me and allowed me to think through my problems as well as helped me through it when I felt stuck. I am now more confident in my current Trig unit because of Jacquelyn. I highly recommend Jacquelyn, and I will definitely be continuing to receive support from her
