"Time with Sarah has been a wonderful addition to our daughter's home and classroom reading efforts! We are wrapping up the school year with very positive results!"
-- Mom of a 1st grader
"Sarah has really helped my son grow as a reader. His confidence level has skyrocketed as well as his fluency! He has made fantastic progress with Sarah and we are grateful we found her!"
-- Mom of a 3rd grader
"Sarah is a wonderful reading tutor for my 11 year old daughter. K. has struggled to read since day 1 and Sarah has not only worked to teach her the skills needed to decode and understand words; she has also instilled confidence and a ‘can do’ attitude when it comes to reading. K. still faces challenges and has a long way to go to read fluently, but I am confident that with Sarah’s help and guidance she will find the enjoyment in reading anything from the simplest letter to the most challenging book."

"Sarah is a life saver! My 14 year old homeschooled son had struggled with reading from day one. I tried every trick and bribe I could think of. I tried to be patient and I tried to be tough. His older siblings didn't have any issues. My son was also very sensitive about his abilities to read and his self esteem was very low. If I tried to help or talk about his abilities he would cry and fight with me and deny his struggles. I needed help and I was referred to Sarah. Sarah pinpointed his difficulties and they went to work. I am very happy Sarah is on our team. Without help he might have lived in shame and denial for years more. I believe Sarah saved his life.!"
"My biggest concern was whether or not you had the expertise needed to make the necessary impact on her reading abilities. Your expertise was evident throughout our daughter’s work with you- everything from your assessments and observations to your ability to engage with her. She is now reading on grade level and her confidence level has increased. The results were excellent and it was well worth the time and money.
We knew how important 1st grade was in terms of academic demands and it was important to us that our daughter see herself as a learner. We knew that this would set the stage for future academic success and her happiness in school. Our daughter is doing much better now and we see her using the strategies you taught her."
