Professional and Friendly

She was prompt and knowledgeable. She was patient and helped our son better understand his math homework. We would recommend her in a heart beat. Our son gave her a “thumbs up” which means a lot!

Perfect

very professional and kind. She came prepared with testing for my daughter to see where she needed help. She also had a 30 minute commute to do the session in our home. My daughter opened right up to her, which is pretty rare. I feel very lucky to find a tutor that has a a gift for special needs children.
