Great first session!

Elated that she was able to assess my daughter so perfectly. Super relieved. She is pleasant, observant and we are both so comfortable communicating with her. Looking forward to our journey!

Paulette, 6 lessons with Lorraine

Knowledgeable and patient

Lorraine was extremely helpful with teaching my 6 year old reading and comprehension skills. She is very patient, intelligent and has a warm demeanor. My son looks forward to every tutoring session with Lorraine. I'm already seeing improvement.

Kate, 3 lessons with Lorraine

very patient

Lorraine is a very knowledgeable teacher as well as very patient with my son. She also made extra time during her busy week to schedule a few extra visits with my son before his exam.

Steven, 14 lessons with Lorraine

Knowledgeable and Adaptable

Compassionate. Willing to help and adapt to a child's needs to help a child better understand what he or she is learning. Excellent and knowledgeable in Math and English tutoring. Has helped my child in the 4th grade build a foundation of her learning to further prosper new skills.

Sukhraj, 32 lessons with Lorraine

Lorraine is an excellent, knowledgeable and patient English teacher!

Lorraine is my 5th grade daughter’s new English tutor. She is the first English tutor for my daughter. Since the reading and writing get more complicated in 5th grade, I hope her tutoring will help her, and prepare her well to go to middle school next year. Although she just gave my daughter few lessons, my daughter loves and enjoys her teaching very much! She is very knowledgeable and patient, and knows how to teach English for kids very well. She brings my daughter’s understanding of reading, grammar and writing to a new level in very short period of time. My daughter would like to have her tutoring for at least one more semester.

Weisheng, 22 lessons with Lorraine

not worked out but good communication

We had good communication. The reply is always prompt. As Lorraine said, my nephew’s English language proficiency still needs to improve. That’s also the reason why we want to have ESL lesson. He could communicate perfectly with the previous tutor who also speaks English only. But that tutor had a new job, and the schedule couldn’t match. ESL teaching is not easy, different learner has different needs.

Xiaonan, 1 lesson with Lorraine

Unusually resourceful!

Lorraine helped me outline a college writing assignment for an overwhelming examination paper. She offered a lot of advice to organize my ideas in correlation to the paper's rubric. Her tutoring lessons made me feel comfortable, and the effect made me feel more confident with my approach on the ways to structure and analyze the examination paper. Lorraine was unusually resourceful as she collaborated with me on my college assignment, therefore I can imagine she makes an honorable effort to tutor all of her students in the same fashion.

Gabriel, 3 lessons with Lorraine

Great Tutor!

Lorraine has help my son reading level improve. She is very patience and works hard to ensure he understands the work. She provides additional tools and provides him reading assignments that he would enjoy reading. I will definitely recommend her!

Tiffany, 22 lessons with Lorraine

Very helpful

Lorraine is helping my son, who is not a native speaker, prepare to SHSAT. She always has all required materials, pays attention to details and explains everything really well. I noticed significant improvement in my son's English at school after only 3 or 4 lessons.
