    Dianne is an excellent and skilled reading and writing tutor. She has so much experience. My son has a lot of educational challenges and also has a difficult time trusting people. He took to Dianne the very first session and is noticeably improving after just a few sessions. I hope we will be able to continue weekly sessions through the school year. I was initially a little concerned about how he would do with a remote zoom session but Dianne is so creative and was able to utilize a number of tactics to keep him engaged. I am very impressed and happy!

    Diane is wonderful. She brings a wealth of hands-on experience and true joy to working with our daughter. You can tell she enjoys what she does and is always pleasantly willing to share the pros and opportunities of what they're working on together. Any guidance and questions on how we can support are answered with just enough tips without being overwhelming. Plus my daughter really enjoys spending this time with her and that's what really matters!

    My six year old daughter needed help with reading. With Mrs. Laura’s assistance she gain two levels in a very short period of time. She now enjoys reading and looks forward to the time she spends with Mrs. Laura
