U Achieve

About

I focus on teaching my students not only “what” to learn but “how” to learn. Throughout my teaching career, I’ve noticed that students often don’t have the study skills and strategies necessary to be successful in their education. It’s not that they can’t or don’t want to learn something, it’s that they haven’t yet (keyword!) been given the tools to know how to learn it. They struggle with disorganization, time-management issues and study/test-taking skills. I incorporate these important life skills into everything I teach! I consider learning to be a lifelong process that never, ever stops. I enjoy helping my students succeed academically - celebrate their strengths & zero-in on areas where they struggle, feel good about themselves and embrace learning throughout their lifetime. I hope to have an opportunity to work with your child soon!

G is at the top of the food chain when it comes to educating young children. She was referred to us from a parent of another child that G had tutored with whom excellent results were attained. G is communicative, flexible and a certain joy to have involved in our daughter educational journey.

Gretchen is a highly motivated and energetic teacher that customizes a program for each student based on their specific needs. Our daughter enjoys each session with Gretchen and we would highly recommend her.

Gretchen was great with my daughter and was always coming up with different ways to keep her interested. My daughter loved going to tutoring. After working with her for almost 2 years (from 10th grad to graduation), it was like having a whole different kid. Her confidence was off the charts and she became more sociable. My daughter didnt just improve in her school work but also as a person. It was great!!! I would definitely recommend U Achieve to anyone whose child needs a little extra help!!

Gretchen is amazing. She is always helping push my daughter to be her best. She is constantly coming up with ideas and systems to help her with organizing and getting homework done on time. My stress level has reduced so much having Gretchen on our team. She helps my daughter and me so much. I wish I would have had her in our team from kindergarten on!!!
