Knowledgeable and prepared

We worked on my essay for college application. We have also worked on preparing for the ACT. We have completed some sample tests and analyzed why I got certain things wrong.

Gayla, 9 lessons with Lisa

Great tutor

Lisa helped my daughter to be more confident approaching the ACT test and I want to thank her for that. From not believing in herself being good enough in English to now being fearless for the upcoming ACT test speaks volumes. Thank you Lisa!

Connie, 3 lessons with Lisa
Tutor responded:

It was absolutely my pleasure. So glad to hear she felt confident.

Wonderful to work with!

Lisa did a great job helping my son prepare for his ACT. He was a bit defeated after not getting the score he hoped for on his first testing attempt. We decided to get him a tutor before trying the test again. Lisa helped build his confidence and he really enjoyed working with her.
