I just wanted to let you know how well Anna is doing. Her teacher just told me that he he can see a noticeable improvement in her ability and comfort in reading at school. Also, Anna and her little sister had a “sleepover” last night, and I could hear Anna reading a goodnight story aloud effortlessly, sounding like she really enjoyed it! We are so grateful for your support of her :-). (Sabine, parent)

Thank you, Diane! I just finished watching your session on The Literacy Nest conference. So much good stuff!! I have several students who would love making these books…and I love how you make OG and SWI live together. (Dana M. Tutor)

I just finished watching your presentation from the Literacy Nest! I LOVED IT! I want to be like you when I grow up!!!  (Amy D. Tutor)

Alec is making tremendous progress with your instruction and we are so appreciative of everything you do. He turned into a real reader these last few months, right before our eyes! He will now read for pleasure for hours on end, something he never did before. We can’t thank you enough for this gift. Reading is a lifelong joy and Alec is finally cracking the code, all because of you! (Amy S. parent)

Diane helped me learn sixth grade math over the summer, so I could move ahead. It has been helpful because if I don’t understand, Diane will teach in a different way. For example, when we were learning rates and proportions, we did it in a more visual way. Diane is always supportive and never negative. (Vivian, 12 years old)

Thank you for teaching me reading and math. We always play games and have fun while we learn. (John, 7 years old)

When my grandson had to come up with a list of ten adjectives for an assignment, he asked what an adjective was. I reminded him that in his lesson with you he learned that <ject> means throw and <ad> means toward and that we throw adjectives at…and he said “oh, yeah, nouns!!” (Nancy B, grandparent)

I want to let you know what a huge difference you are making in Alec’s confidence. He LOVES working with you and is two feet taller after your sessions. Thank you from the bottom of my heart, we really needed this. (Amy S. parent)
