Ms. Arp tutors my 9-year-old fourth grader twice per week with a focus on reading and writing. Prior to beginning her sessions, Ms. Arp met with me to gauge my child's needs. She was very thorough in her assessment of my wants and obviously very knowledgeable about best practices in teaching and remediation. I felt very comfortable being honest about my child's weaknesses and my fears for his future. Ms. Arp put me at ease, though, when she explained to me her plan for bringing my child up to grade level in reading. Ms. Arp spent the first sessions diagnosing my child's reading abilities. From there, she paid close attention to what he was doing in his classroom lessons, and her tutoring reflected the same subject matter as his teacher's lessons. If his class was working on identifying the main idea, that's what my child would work on with Ms. Arp during tutoring. Whenever I had a new idea for an area of focus, Ms. Arp always listened and changed her lessons to address those concerns. I feel like Ms. Arp is part of the larger team of folks who care about my child's education. My child has gained confidence and tangible skills thanks to Ms. Arp. I am grateful that we found a tutor who offered a convenient schedule and a reasonable rate. Giving your child the best opportunities in life should not exist solely for the wealthy. Ms. Arp allows my family to afford the extra academic attention while still having enough left over to keep my child in other extra-curricular activities. We could not have asked for a better tutor. Thanks, Ms. Arp!

I have known Cameron Herman, professionally and personally, for six years. We became colleagues and friends in 2010 while graduate students at the University of Louisville. Since that time, we have supported one another with writing projects pertinent to our respective research projects. When it comes to writing and editingx Cameron has a keen eye for detail. He is also skileld at helping writers draft their ideas clearly. I have found that his background in stats is helpful in that he finds ways to use big data to corroborate qualitative research. Also, Cameron does well in keeping up with various research and writing technologies and resources. Recently, Cameron and I co-authored an essay for the anthropological academic journal, City & Society. Our work assessed the impact of gentrification in Houston, Texas and the efforts of local artists to combat this process of spatial change in the Third Ward neighborhood.
Ms. Janet is excellent at what she does. My daughter was struggling in school and failing. Through tutoring, she pulled her grades up and her confidence rose as well. No matter the task, Janet was qualified. Her commitment to my daughter made all the difference. She studies the AKS, communicates with the teachers, keeps us well informed of session progress, and ensures success by teaching on an individual level. We are very impressed with her work and excited to see further development in our girl. She's the best thing to happen to our daughter's education.
She became and Editor. She edited my book. This was the very first writing that I had ever done for publishing. Without her critique and her sitting with me and explaining the importance of my being myself and making sure that I wrote from the point of what I declared my book would be. She shared with me how important of writing down that people would know you from your writing. She met with me in my office. Never was Mrs. Mansfield in a hurry How Long Did It Take: It took 2 weeks and 3 days. What impressed me most of all was Mrs. Mansfields ability to pull out of me that what would had been necessary to enhance my book. Secondly a willing to listen to me read my book. My book and me as a new writer was very important to her. It was not just a job but care and concern. Some of the time spent in my office, especially the length of time just speaking to me about becoming a writer. Many times was over and beyond what I believe many other persons would have done. Her critiques and the work that she performed was over and beyond helping a new writer. The question is what could have been better: Exactly mothing!! What went wrong? If anything? Nothing. What could Pauline Mansfield do better in the future? Continue to share her love and concern for the people in which she helps. Please note: My use of the name YaQar YaQar is because I have 1 name which is legally "YaQar"

Ms. Judy has been Aaravs tutor for a year now and our experience has been great. Aarav has challenges with writing and comprehension specifically and asked Ms. Judy to focus more on that and I feel he got a bit better at that. She kept it interesting with some current affairs articles that she asked him to work on. Thanks a bunch for the extra help! Appreciate it.
