We have been working with Heather Roe to tutor our now 7th grader for over a year. During that time Heather has been meeting with our daughter between 45 minutes and an hour depending on what the academic needs were of that particular week. This flexibility in itself has proven to be amazingly helpful as assignments and homework are ever changing.
At first I was hesitant to sign up with Heather because of what I considered a higher than average hourly fee compared with other tutors we had worked with in the past. Admittedly, I had been feeling disappointed by the lack of a structured plan, feedback and follow up by past tutors. Not to mention no sign of academic improvement. I was anxious to see what kind of impact more detailed planning of her academic goals would play in my daughter’s learning style when I decided to give her a try.
Our daughter struggles with reading comprehension and has difficulty analyzing complex ideas or concepts, especially those she is unfamiliar with or uncertain about. I can happily say we have seen significant improvement in these areas and though I don’t like to overly rely on test scores, our daughter’s MCAS English results show a 90% improvement over peers in her grade and a solidly proficient score in English.
We have been thrilled with the results and consider Heather not only a dedicated teacher and great tutor but also an integral partner in our daughter’s academic success.
