I interviewed and asked around about several tutoring companies in the north Atlanta area and found The Learning Island to be not only reputable and challenging for my son, but also more affordable. I found Billy Satterwhite, the owner and founder, to be a hardworking businessman and educator of high integrity, and extremely flexible with occasional schedule changes which I aimed to keep to a minimum. I appreciated that he and my son developed a comfortable rapport. I'm happy to say that my son's scores increased as a result of his tutoring sessions, and he felt good about his relationships with the tutors. It is very conveniently located for the Sandy Springs, Chastain Park, Vinings, and north Buckhead communities. The whole experience was overall very, very positive and I highly recommend The Learning Island to anyone with teenagers looking to prepare for their standardized tests.

The sessions are going well. Ila and I have marveled at our good fortune in having such an excellent tutor. I tutor for a living, so I know of what I speak. Ila says she understands what she's being taught and thinks she has a chance at remembering it. We can't thank you and your company enough for matching us up with such an exceptional teacher. I guess the proof is in the pudding so we shall see, but so far so good. One of the reasons that this is going so well is because these are one-on-one lessons. It coasts more but it's worth it.

I take French lessons with Anto, and I like her approach. She uses a variety of ways to help me understand the concepts. I was apprehensive about taking online lessons, but so far so good.

I took voice lessons with him for a show that was six weeks away and there has been notable improvements. I was able to sing most of my notes in a range that was not mine, which is incredible because I was once not able to hit most of my notes. He does specialize in musical theatre; so, if anyone needs help specifically with auditions and shows, he is your man. He does have a strong history with musical theatre and does both acting and singing. Even though my show is over, I still continue to take lessons with him, looking for other songs to audition with and to learn just for fun. He's very down to earth and understands the voice very well. He is also flexible with timing. I am a college student at a school almost 50 minutes away and he completely understands my busy schedule. He also is fairly cheap and very understanding financially. Other good voice teachers can charge up to 70 dollars an hour, so this was a very good deal in my opinion. I do not attend school for musical theatre, I just do it as a hobby, but working with him helps fuel my passion for it. If anyone is looking for vocal/acting help and loves musical theatre (both professionally and for fun), he is a great resource.

I started taking acting lessons from Michael in January for my college auditions. He has been amazing in helping me prepare. I had 8 auditions and I have so far been accepted into 3 of them! I recommend him if you are interested in taking acting lessons or even voice!

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!

Ms. Arlene has tutored me for the past two months. During those two months, I became more aware of my grammar when I write and speak. Almost immediately I started to notice the little things that needed to be adjusted. For example, I was struggling with my tenses and subject and verb agreement when speaking or writing an email. This makes my writing and speaking skills very poor. To improve these skills, Ms. Arlene gave me online account on which I could practice some language arts problems. She also give me lots of supporting to practice. During the first 15 minutes to 20 minutes, we share each other about our week, political points of views, or school systems. The purpose of speaking and sharing my thoughts is to improve my speaking skills. She corrects me with proper tenses while I am speaking. Also, during the weekday’s I send Ms. Arlene an email about anything. She responds with feedback and she restructures my emails to have a different perspective on different writing styles. Overall, Ms. Arlene is very good at what she is doing. She finds your weaknesses and builds her lessons bases on them. I highly recommend her.

Arlene is tutoring my 7 years old nephew in ESOL. She is very attentive and kind to the boy. He previously had problems in school with the language and home assignments, had been very reluctant to even go to school and have any social contacts due to his inability to express himself. Arlene helped him a lot, he became more self-confident and eager to learn. She is not only teaching him the words and grammar, she is making sure that he is getting rid of his foreign accent. And it helps a lot with the bulling problem in school. Thank you, Arlene, for the life-changing experience.

I have always struggled with speaking to large groups. I am very shy and very introverted, and as a result I clam up and stutter profusely. Mrs. LaBoon offered a multitude of strategies to help me overcome my overwhelming stage fright. She also taught me how to organize my speech to make the message, or main point clearer and easier to understand for my audience, in addition to helping me recognize repetitive behavior and speech dysfluences that interrupted the flow of my speech. In conclusion, I am a much better speaker as a result of Mrs. LaBoon's lessons.

Sherrry LaBoon did a presentation for my Church on her humanitarian mission work with the Red Cross in Serbia & Bosnia. She did an excellent job of showing the needs and the care & provision provided by the teams. We especially enjoyed seeing the display of small gifts they received from local artisans as tokens of appreciation. Our group was inspired to continue our work with the mission teams we support as it showed how much people benefit from these activities.

Sherry has been one of the most influential people I have met in my college career. The way she coached me in improving my public speaking skills have truly impacted my life in greater ways than I could ever imagine. Her encouragement and creative instructing methods made learning fun and exciting. Because of her, i consider myself to be more confident with my communication skills and better prepared for life after college.

I had the honor of meeting Ms. Banks last year and have found her to be an amazing teacher, leader, and speaker. Her interactions with young people are inspiring! Her love and passion for her students are evident in the way she delivers curricula and offers 1:1 advice to meet students where they are. Every lecture I've observed has left me interested in participating or learning more about the topic or Banks' ideas on the content. Caprice is creative, personable and energetic - the kind of speaker that can captivate any audience. She has a way of drawing you in and making you feel like her message is a personal conversation rather than a lecture or class presentation. I have been an educator/youth organizer/Ed Specialist for over 20 years and can honestly say that I have met very few people with level of expertise and oratory skills that Caprice Banks has. I, therefore, highly recommend her!

Caprice presented a motivational speech to a high school on the south side of Chicago. She did a great job of getting a pulse on the audience, genuinely engaging them and presenting a truly inspiring speech. The kids were excited to get the opportunity to meet with her afterwards and discuss the performance.

Our colleague conference included time with Beech! It seems every colleague I talk with wants me to express appreciation for Steve's inspiring workshop last week. He really 'got' us. Beech's ability to bring relevant stories to life and apply them practically made all the difference. We covered creating deep conversations, positive self talk and assessing and improving our 'buzz'; all three were fantastic topics for our team. I personally appreciated his approach to learning about our business, anticipating challenges our team members face and connecting with us in such an approachable manner. Beech is always welcome at our conference.

I received absolutely terrific feedback from everyone. Beech gave a superb performance. The context of his speech gave many of us had the opportunity to laugh at ourselves and really connect with the team. By blending his funny real-life stories and current business knowledge, Motivational Keynote Speaker Steve Beecham- educates, motivates, and entertains—delivering solutions audiences can use right away. He was the perfect fit for our group and inspired the group to think about their current Buzz.

Great motivational speaker!!!! Incorporates real life techniques to help grow your business. Best part was his take on self talk, which really makes you think about what type of things you tell yourself or as he refers "the tapes you have playing in your head". Would recommend for any type of business occasion as his points are relatable to multiple business types.

We're a client of Ladder's Learning Service and my 9 year old son absolutely love the online tutoring sessions conducted by Dite. He does the Orton Gillingham program that includes spelling and all sorts of games. I have seen a great improvement with him on his spelling and decoding words with his reading.

Very professional. Goals were outlined for my son who was diagnosed with dyslexia. With each success, his confidence has grown. Reading level has increased three grade levels in one year. Homework is no longer a struggle at home but is completed at school. My son says his tutoring sessions are fun and looks forward to his sessions.

Tutoring over Skype has been an excellent solution for my middle-school son. Ladder Learning Services is efficient and knowledgeable - but they are also warm and caring, adding up to a great learning experience for my son. (services used are Orton-Gillingham lessons and Wilson Grammar for learning differences and dyslexia.)
