Reading is a critical component of both my professional vocation and my education. I am an avid reader with a keen insight for tone and literary device. As an English major at George Mason University, my focus of study was in non fiction writing and ethnography. The discipline required extensive reading, which I very much enjoyed. I also find it very rewarding share my passion for reading with others.

Amazing!

My five year old boy (that normally has a short attention span for sitting in one place) loved every second with Rhiannon. She is so engaging and fun! He is very much looking forward to the 'nice lady to come back and practice reading'!

Jackson, 1 lesson with Rhiannon

Caring and dedicated

Ms Rhiannon was on time and very courteous. She was very receptive to the kids' needs and formulated a plan to work with them. I am really excited to work with her.

Rhiannon has been great developing a rapport with my child. She is very knowledgeable and has a nice way of presenting the material.

Julie, 20 lessons with Rhiannon

Patient, well-prepared, and easy to reach by phone.

Rhiannon and I are getting along very well. She is a good listener and well-prepared, she answers my questions and bring me work sheets on grammar topics that I have problem, corrects my writing and helps me out with my cover letter for my job applications. She calls before she comes, she is very easy to reach by phone. I am very happy and satisfied with her work.
