Shachi knows her stuff!

Shachi helped me prep for an upcoming final and after only one session I feel much more prepared. She is patient and helped me with each problem I got stuck on, with different ways to solve them. Very knowledgeable!

McKenzie, 2 lessons with Shachi

Amazing help for both my girls!

Shachi started tutoring my oldest daughter last year when she wanted to get a better grade on the SAT. My daughter worked very well with her and was very happy with her new score! My youngest daughter started working with Shachi this February and she has really improved with her organization, studying, and test-taking skills! We are grateful for all of Shachi's patience and dedication to helping our children do well on SAT's and in school!

Autumn, 26 lessons with Shachi

Alison, 5 lessons with Shachi
