This was our first time working with a tutor, and I was shocked at how just 90 minutes a week could make such a difference. My daughter’s math grades improved dramatically and most importantly she didn’t dread her math homework. I wish we had found Melissa earlier.

I was homeschooled in Abu Dhabi for my ninth-grade year and Melissa worked with me daily on my American 9th grade English curriculum which was challenging for me because I’m a non-native speaker. Melissa was so patient with me and very kind. Each day we worked on my writing and critical reading. My parents couldn’t believe how much my English improved. I look back at my writing at the beginning of the year and can hardly recognize it. Step by step, my writing was totally transformed.

I started senior year AP English and my writing needed desperate help. Melissa^s suggestions were so useful, and she asked all the right questions to clarify my writing and make it more concise. Melissa’s friendly and relaxed manner was calming, and my stress level decreased a lot. I’m not sure how I would have survived my senior year without her.

At first my son did not want to do the tutoring sessions because he felt like “you are getting me a tutor because I am not smart” but today after the math test he told me “I feel like I’m the smartest guy on earth.” I’m so happy that he got the idea that tutoring is just to help and can really bring out hidden talents. Thank for your everything, I really appreciate the new confidence in my son.
