Char was extremely patient and understanding, helping my daughter focus on her tasks. We moved to Miami and we haven’t found a tutor comparable to Char. She has helped my daughter pass the 3rd and 4th grade- when we started, my daughter was very close to being retained in the 3rd grade. Char worked diligently every week with her, easing her anxiety and restoring her confidence. I’m glad I did my research and chose Char. Highly recommend. Sue A.
