I heard good comments from the mom. Glad we have found our tutor for Grayson

Thank you for writing what happened during the session with Grayson. It is very much appreciated that you are able to keep me (the grandma) in the loop of Grayson's education. Keep up the communication and teaching my grandson to read and write....Thank you!

Excellent tutoring!

DeYonne has been very patient and flexible with my daughter. After tutoring her for a little over a month, I have already seen a huge difference in her fluency, as well as her comprehension. Her dedication and determination is amazing! As an educator myself, I truly value making a difference in children's lives. DeYonne has made reading and writing fun and exciting. My daughter is delighted when tutoring occurs. She states it is "fun and not boring." Thank you DeYonne for the relationship you have made with my daughter and the enthusiastic demeanor you bring every session, that makes her want to read. I highly recommend her to any child who struggles with reading and writing.

Tutor responded:

Thank you, Andrea. You have made my day!. Your kind words mean so much to me. It is truly a pleasure to work with your child, sharing my passion for breaking the "magic code" of reading. I get so much joy when a child shows progress and is motivated to skillfully comprehend what they read. Thanks again for your support and providing feedback for what works best for your child. I appreciate you and your kind complements.

Wonderful tutor!

Ms. DeYonne tutored my daughter for 2 months, so far, at the end of first grade. The improvements were astonishing in her ability to spell and "decode" words. Her methods were very effective and made learning fun. Her patience and kindness, towards my daughter have made a lasting impression on my daughter and I am grateful for everything Ms.DeYonne has done for her.

Branndie, thank you so much for your kind words. It is my pleasure tutoring your daughter; watching her confidence and her skills increase each session. Your support and prompt classwork reports have been a tremendous help. I look forward to working with you all in the Fall.

Awesome, no complaints!

Mrs. Deyonne is a great tutor. My boys seem to be doing well with her. She is patient and makes learning fun for my kids. She is always on time and I'm glad we chose her as our tutor.
