Ms. Tara helps me feel so much better when I am feeling sad or down. After lessons with her, I know I can do anything I put my mind to!

We've seen such an improvement compared to another tutoring company we have him working with, and he looks forward to coming to you for reading tutoring so we would like to just keep coming to you and stop going to the company he currently goes to.

I can't express my gratitude enough! The kids did not stop talking about how nice you were the whole way home after their sessions with you. We are looking forward to what comes next. I was brought to tears when my daughter exclaimed how much she likes you already, she said, "mom, I am happy to go back to her!" Thank you!

Kylie is so fortunate to have the opportunity to work with you. There is no way that I could have accomplished what you have with her no matter how hard I tried. She has made a great deal of progress and it is clear the impact that it has had on her confidence. And, how proud she is of her accomplishments was extremely evident in the photos you took of her last week. You have truly made a significant difference.
I know that you are constantly taking courses and learning about the science of reading. Out of curiosity, I was wondering if you happen to have any that you recommend? I have a small PD budget and the school has agreed to allow me to use it towards SoR courses. No worries if you do not have time to respond. From the way you teach, I can tell that you are well educated in this area. ~private school teacher
