Great Tutor - Very Valuable Resource
Belinda has been working with our son since early April 2015. Her focus is building self-confidence in the subject matter which has helped his performance. Our son’s grade in Algebra II improved since he began working with her. Belinda is a competent, encouraging and effective tutor. She is always courteous and punctual. We are happy to have her helping our son.Chris, 21 lessons with Belinda

Knowledgable and skillful.
Belinda is a dedicated tutor. I liked that she performs a good learning style assessment for my child prior to catering to specific learning topics. She is a great match for my daughter's tutoring needs. Most important, Belinda is very receptive with suggestions and encourages unbiased feedback.Marilou, 10 lessons with Belinda
Compassionate and patient
We were in a bind with a short window to get my son prepared for his Algebra final and with so much information to review Ms. Belinda was very thorough and made sure that my son understood each problem they reviewed. I appreciate her tips and the compassion she showed him. We are praying for favor on his final and grateful for Ms. BelindaDawn, 4 lessons with Belinda

Belinda works with my 5th grade daughter in math. She is very passionate about learning and it shows! She is always patient with my daughter and willing to stay longer to help her out when she is having difficulty. My daughter has had several tutors and by far, Belinda is the BEST.

Extremely patient Tutor
My son is currently a freshman in high school and struggling with the Common Core Math. After my son had his first session with Belinda, I was able to "SEE" a feeling of accomplishment glowing from my son after his 1st session with Belinda. He couldn't stop talking about how excited he was actually understanding his lesson for the first time!!Would I recommend Belinda as a Math Tutor? YES!!!!!!!!Diana, 1 lesson with Belinda
