Great tutor

Kerry came to our home and helped our Sophomore at Geneva high school prepare for his final exam. She was congenial, knowledgeable and thorough. Our son was engaged, felt comfortable asking questions and appeared more confident after the session.

Eric, 1 lesson with Kerry

Very encouraging and flexible about scheduling

I very much enjoyed working with Kerry in practicing my conversational Spanish skills and reviewing key grammar points. She's reliable and encouraging; she takes notes to provide me with study points, uses good supplemental materials, but doesn't rely on or require textbook drills. Instead, Kerry is able to point me to particular readings and exercises for the practice related to my abilities and challenges. She's also very personable and easy to talk with. I also like that she's a current teacher of Spanish at the college level and has traveled to and lived in Spanish-speaking countries, so she also understands the context and different dialects of Spanish. So, she brings an easy-going expertise to her tutoring.
