Kim, Thank you so much for the service you are providing at BLC. When you confirmed to me that your staff consisted of educators currently in the school system, that reassured me that your location was the perfect match for my daughter. Your staff knows the school curriculum and what my daughter needs to have a successful 3rd grade year. Since October I've seen progression and as recent as December my daughter received a level 4 on her Case21 reading. Thank you for going above and beyond by ensuring you and your staff are in constant contact with the teacher(s) as well as being available to attend face to face parent/teacher conference meetings if needed. We are looking forward to the EOG study and camp out sessions. There's more work to be done, but I'm confident we well meet our goals for this school year with the help of BLC! Thank you!

I highly recommend Amanda's style of working with kids. She helped my son with his reading comprehension where others haven't been able to and he has been able to build from it.

Tia is an awesome young lady as well as a great tutor. I got Ms. Lucas to help with my daughter Miracle who is now a rising 4th grader. Miracle's weakness was math but Tia realized that she was not comprehending what she reading, and she began to work with her on reading comprehension. Once Miracle understood that, then her math skills improved. Another great thing that was recognized was that my daughter learns through colors and this is a great way that she understands her work. My daughter has been working with Tia since the beginning of her 3rd grade year and I will continue to let my daughter work with her even if she is comfortable to do it on her own. The principle behind her continuing tutoring is to keep her focused on her work and new learning skills. I would definitely recommend Dynamiklearning to anyone. I have referred to parents to her already.

Caryn provides instruction for my first grader in reading, writing and math. Her professional experience, warm heart and enthusiasm for teaching creates a perfect learning environment. My son's classroom performance and confidence at school has significantly improved as a result of Caryn's dedication to her art. She easily identified my son's learning style and tailors each session to his unique needs. She is a master of integrating learning objectives, curriculum and fun. Caryn's communication with the classroom teacher and family enables us to have a unified team working on a common goal.

      Heather is a awesome teacher! She is highly experienced, kind and caring teacher. Heather has been working with my two children, who were diagnosed with a learning disability in reading and in writing. She is so very kind and patient with my kids. She was able to connect and teach them on their level. As a result of working with Heather, my children are now reading on grade level. As a parent, I have seen my children self confidence grow and they have also developed a love and excitement for reading and learning new things. If you are looking for someone to help get your child reading on grade level or help them maintain their reading level I would highly recommend Heather Chapman. She is a awesome teacher!

      Jami's Tutoring

        Ms.Jami started tutoring my children (ages 3 and 4) in Spanish a little less than a year ago. During that time my son's natural interest for reading increased but decreased when working with mommy. Ms. Jami did some preliminary testing to see if he was truly ready and soon she began tutoring him in reading also. Initially, I was concerned that he would not be able to tolerate 30 mins of Spanish then 30 mins reading. However, he is able to maintain in seat behavior with a short break between subjects and the 60 min sessions go by quickly. There is an award system in place to manage behavior and fun interactive hands on activities (singing, music, tactile and visual stimuli) which sustains their attention. As an educator it evident that tasks are age appropriate and consistently tweaked to meet the needs of my children. My children are day and night in terms of personalities and learning styles. I am alway's amazed how Ms. Jami manages both of them in the same session. A sign of a great teacher and a gentle spirit. Ms. Jami presents with weekly lesson plans, carry over activities, affordable rates and she genuinely likes children. I highly recommended her, she is one of my best finds on Craigslist to date! The children love and respect her!

        Krithika is an excellent tutor. She knows all the conventions, rules, expectations, and online resources for topics of high school writing such as critical thinking, literary analysis, research papers, SAT prompts, and college admissions. Like her profile says, she brings passion to the subject. Her energy and enthusiasm are contagious, so not only has my son’s writing improved, but so has his interest in the subject. She’s an excellent communicator who can connect with the student as well as mediate with the parent. I am sure her advice and guidance are going benefit my son for the rest of his life.

          Club Z was exactly what we were looking for our son. Evan just graduated high school and is preparing to go to college this fall. He needed help with improving upon his writing skills so that he would be well prepared to handle the writing challenges in college. Becky was Evan's tutor and she did an excellent job in helping him achieve that goal. His writing skills have greatly improved as well as his confidence in his abilities. I would highly recommend Club Z for anyone looking for tutoring. Cecelia Mills, Durham N.C.

            I got Debra's name through a friend who's daughter has difficulty with studying. Best $40 I ever spent! Debra is incredibly patient with my son (4th grade) on his reading skills. After a quick evaluation, she knew the best approach for him. We are having Debra on a weekly basis now. Very reasonable rate -- I would gladly pay more for Debra's tutoring.

            Christina is a very skilled professional in terms of tutoring, editing, and writing. She aided me in the proofing and editing of my resume within the higher education profession, where I now hold a position at a highly regarded university. Her attention to detail, and quick responses are unprecedented. I also have had the unique opportunity to witness her skills as a teacher and tutor for younger students, where her patience is exemplary. Very happy with her work. Would use again!

Although I have a Master's in English, 10-plus years of teaching and tutoring experience and a background in professional writing, I believe it's my enthusiasm and dedication that play the biggest role in my students' success.
