Excellent tutor with fast response times

Melissa's work ethic and diligence are unsurpassed. Literature is not my forte and I feel indebted to Melissa's help with my daughter's papers. She quickly reviewed and suggested to my daughter how she should arrange her paper in accordance with MLA guidelines.

Melissa is great

Melissa is very encouraging and has boosted my daughter's confidence each lesson. She knows the ins and outs of the SAT. She has also been very helpful in my daughter's college search.
