Dr. Judkins is an excellent teacher. Only after a few lessons with him, my son had a significant improvement in ACT reading, from 19 questions wrong to 2 questions wrong in official practice tests. We are looking forward to seeing other big improvements in his future college level lessons with Dr. Judkins.

Our tutor is awesome and meets us in person. The company is organized, reasonably priced, and flexible. There's no long-term commitment and we were matched with a tutor who could assist with multiple subjects. Student Circle is outstanding.

My 6th grade daughter was behind her grade level in math for the past two years.... even working with a math tutor. Our neighbor recommended Richelle.....and now the tables have turned! We just had the most amazing teacher conference and report card. She has an A+ in math, and her teacher was blown away that she had been struggling in the past. Richelle has a way of connecting with her and making math fun. She comes so highly recommended from us!

READING & WRITING &VOCABULARY HELP Is your child still struggling to read and write even though he or she has worked with a reading specialist? Have you been told that your child might be dyslexic. I was trained at the Blosser Center in Portland, Oregon to teach reading to children who are dyslexic, are suspected of being dyslexic, or are just having a hard time learning to read. I have a screening I use, so I can tell you if I can help your child. The Orton-Gillingham method of teaching reading, writing, and spelling to children and adults who struggle to read has been around many years, and it works beautifully. In addition to my training at the Blosser Center, I have a BA in Journalism from the University of Oregon. I have been tutoring children from 1st grade to 12th grade in reading and writing for nine years. I have also worked with adults who want to improve their reading and writing. In addition to reading and writing, I also work with children on grammar and handwriting as time allows. I home schooled my own dyslexic son through middle school until he was reading and writing above grade level. He is now an upper classman pursuing a STEM major at Washington State University. Furthermore, I have worked in two different public schools as an Orton-Gillingham reading specialist. Currently, I have an up-to-date background check through Evergreen School District for reading and writing tutoring services contracted through the school. How it works - I meet with your child two to three times a week for 50 minutes per session. I tutor most of my children at the Salmon Creek Library in Salmon Creek in Vancouver, Washington. In some cases, I can come to your home if you live close to the library. I have excellent references from parents and teachers. I would love to talk to you about your child and your options. Helping children learn to read is my passion and life work.

My son needed Calculus tutoring quickly. He broke his arm and needed surgery in the middle of the semester resulting in missed classes & him getting behind. He needed immediate help to get caught up fast. Lisa was prompt with responding to our request & willing to meet us 1/2 way. Communicative. Kind. Knowledgeable. Patient. Easy to schedule. Highly recommend.

Scientia est potentia means knowledge is power. Because of my wide range of interests, I am able to tutor in the following subjects: * any math up to Calculus 2 * any K-12 science (almost anything that ends with "ology") * K-12 geography * K-12 history (depending on the subject whether WWII, civil war, and American revolution as I am especially well read) * reading and writing to a college level with emphasis in technical writing * almost any mechanical engineering subject * basic circuits * basic computer programming * computer skills, including Microsoft Word, Excel, Powerpoint, etc. I can tutor on those listed and many other subjects. If you are interested, let me know. My rates are extremely affordable for my level of expertise. I'm just trying to do something useful with my time and make a little money with which to spoil my wife and child.
