The Right Fit

Today was my daughters first lesson with Valerie. She was on time and her warm personality made it easy for Journee to feel comfortable.

A good experience for a worried mother :)

Valerie came to assess my 7yr. old son's reading abilities. She arrived on time with a backpack of supplies. She didn't let my son get away with much procrastinating and kept him focused. She was encouraging as she discussed his abilities and offered suggested strategies for improvement. I'd describe her as a seasoned teacher, proactive & positive.

First meeting

Valerie was on time for first meeting. She was friendly and professional and was able to help my grandson complete some economics homework he was having difficulty with. First meeting went well.
