Very willing to help

I continue to get positive feedback from my daughter after each session on how patient Colleen is with her, and how she helps her see things differently. Colleen is more than willing to help in any way she can so everyone involved sees positive results. Its only been a couple of weeks with us but I'm glad we made this decision

Rachel, 5 lessons with Colleen

Amazing teacher!

Update: 6-5-15 Mrs. Colleen is an absolutely amazing teacher. I finished college algebra with an A. I'm very confident that I only achieved this grade because I had such a wonderful tutor. Thank-you! Mrs. Colleen is tutoring me in College Algebra. She is an amazing teacher that takes time to make sure I grasp the concepts being covered in class. I have no doubt that with her help I will be able to pass my class. Mrs. Colleen is able and willing to patiently work with the student looking to have their lessens broken down in simple play-by-play form (myself) as well as the student that just needs some extra clarification.

Erica, 14 lessons with Colleen

knowledgeable and patient

She was very patient during the problem solving process. Colleen made sure my daughter fully understood how to correctly solve polynomials and rationals.

Marion, 1 lesson with Colleen

Knowledgable and Patient

Colleen convinced me to try online tutoring which I was not interested in at all. I felt I needed to meet with someone face to face. Colleen made using the whiteboard for a session so simple. All I had to do was send pictures from my textbook before our meeting and she would upload the photo to the whiteboard and we would work on the problem together. She is well versed in accounting and you feel confident in your abilities after you work with her!
