I enjoyed working with my tutor Mr. Frampton. He is very good at solving Calculus and Physics problems, and was always modest when he wasn't able to figure it out. He was always courteous about wasting my time. I liked how he would add a bit of humor with his lesson. He would do all sorts of funny impressions of my teachers, in a joking way of course. Other than Calculus and Physics, he also taught me how to explain things to others in a meaningful way, and how to be professional and punctual. I enjoyed work8ing with him this year and last year, and hope to work with him again for my senior year in high school. Thanks a bunch Mr. Frmapton!! :)

I really enjoyed working with Poojitha. I believed that it would be hard to understand her when she spoke. Because she is from another country. I was really wrong, Poojitha has a heart to teach. She takes her time and for the very first time I've found someone who could work with my study needs. Something that has been so hard to do.When Poojitha borke the work down in ways were easy for me to understand. The only regret I had while working with Poojith. Was I did not have the funds to keep it going. I encourage anyone needed help with their studies to reach out to young lady Poojitha! She truly has a heart to teach and a heart for people. I call her my angel sent from heaven, God sent this young lady into my life and I am grateful for the time she took with me. Also when I didn't have the money she was still willing to give me lessons. But I am a truly believer of not using someone for my gain. God Bless You Always Lady Poojitha.

Laura truly did an amazing job with my resume. She is EXTREMELY qualified as an English teacher. I reached out to Laura on a Friday and met with her that same weekend. I explained to her how a job just got posted within my company that I was urged to apply for my upper management ASAP and I wanted my resume revamped to sound more mature and professional. Laura did just that. We worked on my resume TOGETHER for 2 hours and I feel so much more confident going into an interview. I highly recommend her for anything English related :)

My kids absolutely love Building Blocks Services and look forward to attending their weekly tutoring sessions! I can truly say since they've been receiving their one on one tutoring services with Dr. Lamb I've seen tremendous growth & improvement in their confidence levels and approach to their challenging lessons. This is only the beginning and I'm very pleased thus far! So glad I made the decision to invest in my children's future!

    I had the pleasure of working directly with Latarisa on several projects to create a platform where children from all walks of life could come together in a safe, positive environment to discuss life lessons, challenges they are faced with, goals and the importance of being who they are. Latarisa had great enthusiasm with the projects and was very creative in teaching her audience how to deal with all situations in a more positive way. Not only did she do a fabulous job teaching and working with the children, but she also taught other colleagues how to foster more positive outcomes in their own lives. Over the years, I watched her interpersonal skills quickly create and successfully cultivate collaborative team environments among children as well as adults. Even in the proverbial heat of trials and tribulations faced when bringing any group of people together, Latarisa not throw the towel in and quit, she pressed on and continued with a positive attitude. On numerous occasions, I witnessed her table her own timelines and duties to assist other colleagues. Latarisa's exemplify the characteristics of both a team leader and team player and would gladly welcome the opportunity to work with her again in any capacity.

    Kathy has been a wonderful tutor for both my daughters, ages 14 and 16. She is able to connect and build a relationship with her students that builds confidence while they are learning, whether in Spanish 1 or Spanish 3. I highly recommend her for tutoring. Her knowledge and fluency is exceptional while still being able to meet the child where they are in their knowledge. My children's grades improved tremendously with her help. Thank you Kathy!

    Mr. Fullwood is truly an outstanding teacher. He was able to help my daughter understand the lesson concepts and taught her a new way of seeing Geometry. We look forward to more of his teaching style this school year.

    About

    I've taught for 10 years at a high school in VA Beach. I have a degree in English with a teaching emphasis and graduated with honors from ODU. I've been tutoring students privately for one year, and I love it. It is rewarding to work one-on-one with students and see them improve. I can assist students in preparing for the English SOL, reading comprehension, grammar, vocabulary, study skills, organization, writing skills, poetry explication, analyzing literature, and timed writing tips. In my 10 years of teaching, I have taught 9th and 10th grade core, 10th grade inclusion, and 10th grade honors, and I am AP and AVID trained. I excel at reaching students where they are and building their skills.
