Professional, enthusiastic people. I highly recommend them for any age group. Heard about this service from a friend and will definitely be passing on the word!
Adam M.
My son was really struggling with his foundational math skills and it started to have a significant impact on his confidence in school. Luckily we found Amanda and she made him feel so comfortable instantly! We took him in for sessions twice a week and have slowly started seeing improvements not only in his math skills, but his confidence as well! We’re so thankful that we found Amanda!
