Kristen is working once a week with my son on executive functioning skills. He is a sophomore at TJHSST, so we needed to find someone to help him develop a system for staying getting and staying organized, and for staying on top of bigger, longer term projects, which Kristen has done. She is helping him learn the organizational and study skills he will need for college and beyond. It was challenging to find someone who understood the speed, pressure and intensity of TJ, plus 2e/ADHD issues, but Kristen does.
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.
