I continue to make consistent, pleasant progress with this learned lady, if I may use this expression, which I find quite apt. I can read and write most of the alphabet and read some words. An Arabic word is "not Greek to me" any more, forgive the pun or whatever that was. Actually perhaps an interesting mixed metaphor, as languages like Arabic, Mandarin and Hindi are the new frontier, as Greek might have been in Shakespeare's day. A foundation has been laid. A great educator.
She is a business professional and does an amazing job at delivering an encouraging learning experience, for my son. 1/8/2014: Tonight was my son's final lesson with Carole before his SSAT, which will be in two days. We feel so fortunate that we had Carole and my son is feeling a lot more confident in his ability to perform well in the exam. couldn't ask for a better tutor!! She genuinely cares about her students and is truly committed and encouraging!!
She makes him feel comfortable and confident with his knowledge after each appointment. We went to Stephanie for tutoring help for the upcoming SAT/ACTs. She easily teaches from each topic (math, English, and writing); it's obvious that she's comfortable in all these areas. She went through his PSAT, that he took last fall, and was able to help him understand the problems that he missed and teach him the concepts behind each one.
