Patient and very effective! — Dorit tutored my 6th grade son in writing for about four months. What a change! Now he tackles writing assignments with confidence and works on them steadily. She was amazingly patient with him, particularly when he was stubborn. She explored his interests and encouraged him to write about them. I'm very impressed and will turn to Dorit again if he needs more help. ...
