Great Tutor

If your child is having trouble with reading, this is the tutor you need. She was great at assisting us in determining the cause of my child's reading difficulty and was available when needed. Although my child reads slowly, she now reads with much more understanding of the material. At the end of the sessions, she was reading above her grade level.
