Our son Noah was really struggling to read but loved composing stories. After having a weekly lesson with Rachel over a few months, where his stories were nurtured and encouraged, he is now doing very well, voluntarily reading words he has not seen before and enjoying doing so. We are really happy with his progress. Thank you Rachel for playing such an important role both in your patience and love with him, nurturing his own appreciation of himself by valueing who he is. You gave him the confidence that he needed, as well as teaching him useful tools with which he could successfully navigate through the daunting world of words.
