Vanessa L. says, "Andrea truly sees what our son needs help with, even if he has not figured out or articulated where he is needing help. She takes the time and care to observe and is adept at determining where their energy and focus is best spent. Whether that is drilling into the details of budgeting in math class, practicing presentation skills for his next project, or structuring his writing, she is able to flex her approach to meet him where he is, and help him to grow. She is such a positive force in his student life! Andrea truly cares and that makes such a huge impact on our son and on our family." Read more

Ariba H. says, "She really made sure that every concept I struggled with was addressed and that by the end of our time together were ones that i fully understood. She really puts her all into each lesson and never brushes over anything. She also never made me feel bad for not understanding anything which was really beneficial to me wanting to come into our sessions everyday. Overall she is an amazing tutor and I really wouldn't have improved my score as much as i was able to without her help." Read more
