Our daughter has worked with Vanessa for several weeks and we (and our daughter more importantly) couldn't be happier. Vanessa puts learning into action through creative and challenging projects. For example, math and organizational skills come to life through hands on projects like baking and sewing.
Vanessa took her time to get to know us and our daughter through a comprehensive set of questions. She was diligent about making sure she was on the mark. Vanessa is a great communicator, proving feedback on progress and updates on schedule challenges which are rare. She is a true professional who takes her job seriously but also knows how to have fun. Our daughter is making great strides and is more confident in her abilities.
Thanks so much for providing this feedback. It has been such a joy working with your daughter. I hope she has as much fun as I do! Happy Spring Break!
In most cases, tutors gain approval in a subject by passing a proficiency exam. For some subject areas, like music and art, tutors submit written requests to demonstrate their proficiency to potential students. If a tutor is interested but not yet approved in a subject, the subject will appear in non-bold font. Tutors need to be approved in a subject prior to beginning lessons.
