Great tutor

I have worked with Jo. K and have found her to be extremely helpful with my work assignment. I have found her to be very prompt, actuate and sincere about her working relationship with me. My first experience with Jo. was great! She assisted me with one of my writing assignments. She provided me with feed back, editing, and clarity. After working with Jo, I felt confident turning in my first writing assignment to my instructor. I am currently on academic probation but I have gained a great deal of confidence since the short time I have been working with Jo. Her positive attitude with my work assignments is what I need to get through my courses. In addition, she makes personal follow up weekly calls (without charge) to assure I am on schedule with my work assignments. I look forward in working with Jo with additional assignments. Thank you Jo for all of your support. You are highly appreciated.

The Best, most patient and informative tutor I have worked with!!

Jo exhibits a get it done attitude and a tenacity that is very admirable. Her basic understanding of the business issues involved were a huge help. She is by all accounts a very quick study and can be helpful to anyone who uses her services. I could not be more pleased with her work!
