Holly has worked with my son for a little over a year. The summer before starting kindergarten I hired her so that my son would be ready, and not behind and be able to focus on learning not struggling with reading, writing, and spelling. This is now the end of his kindergarten year, and Holly has him reading at what is expected of the end of the year for first grade. He is advanced in his reading and spelling, and has developed a love for math due to being able to understand the instructions, because he can read them himself.
Holly also has a wonderful rapport with my son and the way she teaches, he is excited when she arrives. Sometimes it seems like they are just playing, but you cannot argue with results. Excitement, and advanced learning, what else can a parent ask for?
