Helping Kid With Homework


Victoria C.

When my daughter first started tutoring, she was being tutored in reading and math. She was not very motivated and would give up easily. Over the past 2 years, I have seen a tremendous change! My daughter is excited about learning. She has confidence in her school work and even when something is a challenge, she does not give up. She keeps trying!  Her grades reflect her hard work and she has earned A/B honor roll for the first time! Thank you Ms. Tiffany for your support, encouragement and commitment to my daughter's academic success!

I'm extremely grateful and appreciative of the work Tiffany put in to help my son achieve his reading goals. Her professionalism and passion for reading is admirable. She was patient and she helped him gain the confidence he needed to excel in reading.
