John has loved Tracy from the beginning. He begs to do drill and dictation – not just with her but at home, in the car, anytime we have some down time. She has given me tools and tricks to help keep his interest in reading and writing. He has never complained about going to his tutoring sessions – and this hasn’t been the case with other tutoring situations! Even on days that are tougher for him, when she is adding something new or is touching on a tougher issue for him, she gracefully handles his disappointments and builds him up – gives him confidence and reassurance. However, she’s not easy on him. She is clear to him that some days are going to require more out of him and supports his rising to the occasion. She is knowledgeable about working with children with dyslexia, and I have seen a great deal of improvement in my son’s understanding and learning since we started seeing her just 3 months ago. We are very thankful to have found such an awesome tutor.
