Great Tutor

Jeri is an excellent tutor. She is organized and knows her student's weaknesses. I feel my son is improving. His sentences are longer and more descriptive. My son has had nine lessons with Jeri. She is an outstanding tutor in every respect. She really cares about his progress and makes every effort for my son to excel. Writing I feel is a hard area to teach. She has a special approach and is extremely organized. I feel my son is making great strides. When my son started, his sentence structure was poor and he had difficulty with organization. He is definitely making progress in both areas.
