Keara V.
Dolores and I started working together my freshman year of college when I struggle with pre calculus and kept working together for the 3 following years as I had to take Calc 1 and 2 and linear algebra for my Computer science major. She’s the best teacher I’ve ever had, even better than my professors, and it was a blessing to be able to work with her all these years! Thank you so much Dolores »

Kate is a dedicated educator and I cannot recommend her highly enough! She has been tutoring my second grader in both reading and math for several months and her tailored approach has significantly improved his skills and confidence in each subject. Kate fosters a positive learning environment, making the sessions enjoyable for my son while still remaining focused on achieving academic progress. I am truly grateful for the impact she has made on my child’s education!
