    We could not be happier with the services Valerie provided! She is very thoughtful and knowledgeable and provided significant guidance to support our daughter's speech development outside of our scheduled sessions. She established … More a great working relationship with her, and she will definitely be missed! Your business model is amazing and it was an absolute pleasure working with Valerie. I've referred your organization and Valerie to the Executive Director of our daughter's school and friends/colleagues who are in need of speech therapy services.

    Christina was absolutely wonderful. She went out of her way to win my son over and it worked. He looked forward to her visits and his speech improved so much under her care. She was super flexible and it’s clear she truly cares. We adore … More Christina and we’re going to miss her. Almost sad he improved so much!

    We cannot say enough good things about Effie, the ASL teacher, who was so engaged and effective with our 2 year old daughter from the very first session! Effie gladly included our whole family in the sessions! Her expertise and fantastic … More personality gave our daughter a way to communicate that she was so desperately seeking.

    Samantha Dalmas was fantastic! We saw her for a feeding therapy evaluation and while she doesn’t think my daughter needs more feeding therapy sessions at this time, but she gave me lots of tips to try. If my daughter's doctors want … More to see more progress at her next appointment, I wouldn’t hesitate to reach out to Samantha again.
  • Best 1:1 Reading Tutoring Westchester, NY | Brooklyn Letters, Brooklyn Letters Duygu Başaran ★★★★★ 11 months ago

    Melissa was wonderful. Our daughter warmed to her immediately and by the time she left, had already started "practicing" some of the techniques Melissa had shown her. I will not hesitate at all to reach out to Melissa again, should … More the need arise.

    Aileen was INCREDIBLY helpful to us, both in assessing possible origins of my grandson's food aversions, as well as informing us of various available interventions to consider.
    I can’t thank you and Brooklyn Letters enough for connecting
    … More us with Aileen. In all our feeding therapy journey we have not gotten anything near the kind of benefit that we did from her. Her knowledge, professionalism, and responsiveness have put us on the path of progress with my grandson and has also made us feel genuinely well cared for.
  • Best 1:1 Reading Tutoring Westchester, NY | Brooklyn Letters, Brooklyn Letters Christine Weiher ★★★★★ 2 years ago
    We were amazed with Allison! She met my son at 2 1/2 years old, not speaking much at all, and over a computer, and she was able to develop a bond and friendship, so much so that he would look forward to his weekly computer time with Allison. … More I was not sure how the speech therapy would go- but we are so happy that we tried it out and continued. It allowed my son to gain confidence in his speech, make a new friend :), and also give him the skills and a bit of understanding of how to shape his mouth or where to place his tongue to make the proper sounds. We were extremely happy with Allison- she was fantastic to work with.
  • Best 1:1 Reading Tutoring Westchester, NY | Brooklyn Letters, Brooklyn Letters Andrea Saffady ★★★★★ 2 years ago
    My sessions with Karen have been extremely helpful. My speech has improved tremendously. In fact, I just finished 2 hours of conducting interviews with a consulting client via MS Teams and I have an upcoming conference call. Both my … More neurologist and neurosurgeon remarked about how good my speech is. Much of the day it is perfect, although I still have some rough spots when I get tired or speak too quickly. One of my granddaughters is a speech pathology student at Ithaca College. She sat in on 2 sessions while she was home for winter break, and she was very impressed with Karen.
  • Best 1:1 Reading Tutoring Westchester, NY | Brooklyn Letters, Brooklyn Letters Jacob B ★★★★★ 4 years ago
    We were delighted with Christie. First, and most importantly, our son made great strides under her guidance. So great, that we felt he no longer needed help! She was incredibly patient and kind with him and our son really responded to … More her. Christie was also great with me and my wife. She provided thorough and informative updates on our son's progress and which exercises she was using with him, so we could reinforce what she was teaching him. All in all, we had a fabulous experience with Christie and would highly recommend her.

  • Best 1:1 Reading Tutoring Westchester, NY | Brooklyn Letters, Brooklyn Letters Samantha Packard ★★★★★ 3 years ago
    We've been working with Theo from Brooklyn Letters for close to 4 months now and the results are apparent; our daughter has vastly improved her speech in a relatively short amount of time. We make "Theo Day" a celebration … More in our house with pancakes for breakfast, and the enthusiasm is matched in the sessions. Theo is fun, patient, professional, and caring, and he gives us the tools to take the lessons beyond the session. Thank you Theo, and Brooklyn Letters, for helping our daughter express herself.

  • Best 1:1 Reading Tutoring Westchester, NY | Brooklyn Letters, Brooklyn Letters susie tofte ★★★★★ 3 years ago
    The work that Allison P. did with our daughter over the years has been invaluable to us. Our daughter had such a good relationship with Allison, and it allowed them to work really well together - even remotely these past 6 months. This … More year, Allison went above and beyond by helping us throughout the neuropsych eval we did, trying to re-open our daughter's IEP at her school, and eventually landing her at our chosen school. She was in contact with our daughter's teachers, with the neuropsychologist, and made herself available as a reference to speak on behalf of our daughter's learning differences.
    Allison stopped by our house last week to give our daughter cupcakes and say goodbye, and I literally cried with appreciation for what an amazing speech therapist she has been. She has been our daughter's biggest champion. The new families that she will work with this year are lucky to have her.

  • Best 1:1 Reading Tutoring Westchester, NY | Brooklyn Letters, Brooklyn Letters Kristin Ames ★★★★★ 4 years ago
    Our experience with Theo was terrific. Theo was great with my son. He developed a positive relationship with him based on sincerity, respect, trust and a deep personal connection. In their lessons, Theo was encouraging, creative and kind. … More He helped our son understand how to differentiate the sounds he made when he spoke, and gave him great exercises to practice every week between lessons. Our son was sorry to have the lessons come to an end, but recognized that Theo had helped him as much as possible and it was time for him to stop. Theo explained to him (and us) how to keep working to get the last 5%, and encouraged him to keep working on the exercises on his own. I have recommended Theo to another parent who noticed my son's improvement and inquired for her own son.
    We are all grateful to have gotten to know Theo, and we greatly appreciate all the work he did to help our son.

    "I have nothing but wonderful things to say about Michelle Macroy-Higgins. We are extremely pleased with her work with our daughter. I was so grateful for my daughter to have a speech therapist who is a researcher (specialty in late … More talkers), graduate professor and practitioner. Her expertise was clearly evident in our conversations and work with our daughter. She was very responsive to my questions and often sent articles and other materials about language development that I found helpful. Thankfully, my daughter's speech improved tremendously. Michelle developed such a warm relationship with my daughter. My daughter was always excited to see Michelle and would greet her at the door with a big hug. Lastly, I would add that Michelle always demonstrated empathy with me as a mother who was initially worried about her daughter's language development. I could go on and on about how pleased we were with Michelle's work."

    We were absolutely DELIGHTED with Marsha's services. She was wonderful. We found her to be kind, fun, engaging, very knowledgeable. She provided us with clear instructions and additional written handouts each week. She engaged our … More son with different techniques and toys, and showed us how to use her techniques when we were interacting with him. I actually just texted her on Saturday - Our son finally said "more" - one of the target words we had been working on with her. It was a total joy to hear, and I had to share it with her - she wrote back immediately to congratulate us. I am so appreciative of her expertise, and wish we could have seen her for longer. I recommended her to another family in our neighborhood who is looking for a speech therapist.

TESTIMONIALS

Highly recommend Jill.
She is a total pleasure to work with. After a few months working with Jill,
my son is reading above grade level and LOVES to read. Mission accomplished!

Melissa S.

She’s absolutely wonderful and we are grateful to have found her!
Miss Shelley has changed our son’s life in a way we never thought possible.
She is patient and kind, but most of all, effective. Our seven-year-old has
been working with Miss Shelley for almost a year. During that time, our son
has gone from below average to exceeding expectations. He’s more confident and
fluid in his reading and writing and continues to make excellent progress.
Most importantly, Miss Shelley deals extremely well with our son’s
periodic lack of focus. She manages to bring him “back” to the table
with her techniques and patience. I would urge any parent whose child
struggles with reading to jump on the opportunity to work with her.
Miss. Shelley appears to use just the right mix of tools in her lessons.
Repeating the basics, introducing new concepts, some games to keep things
interesting, and finally, some reading and writing.
We are truly grateful for Miss. Shelley and continue to look forward to
working with her in the future.

We were happy with Michelle’s services.
Alara had a good year overall – her organizational skills improved and she
showed nice progress in reading and writing. Michelle and her teachers were a
key part in helping to make this happen, so much appreciated.
Michelle worked very well with Alara and we appreciate it!

Rachel has been an amazing tutor for my daughter
She established a close relationship with her and helped her to jump several
reading levels. Thanks to Rachel, my daughter is now a confident reader!
I am very happy that I reached out to you and I will certainly recommend
Brooklyn Letters in the future.

Joseph, father

Wonderful Experience
Suzanne worked with our 4-year old son for several months on fluency and
pronunciation issues. He made remarkable progress with her and we were extremely
pleased with Suzanne’s professionalism, warmth, knowledge, and attentiveness.
Our son soon learned to love and look forward to her visits and she was extremely
thorough in working with us to explain the process and go through our questions.
We wholeheartedly recommend her.

Rayna

It was great working with Brooklyn Letters. We contacted a number of tutors through
the service and ultimately found the one who best met the needs of our son.
Katie was terrific. We saw significant improvement in our son's reading skills,
and more importantly, saw his confidence blossom under her guidance.
Thank you Highly Katie and Brooklyn Letters.

Elizabeth Crowell

Jill was absolutely wonderful! We all love her. She provided exactly the reading help
that our son needed and was a pleasure to work with. My son always looked forward
to his sessions with Jill. And Jill was really great at tag-teaming with my sister who did
activities/exercises that Jill recommended with him. After some months of working
with Jill, my son is now an avid confident reader. He reads on his own at home and
his school teachers report that he loves to read at school and is reading above grade level.
Mission accomplished! I would highly recommend Jill to anyone to provide remote services!

Mel S.

It has been life-changing!
We have been working with Joanna from Brooklyn Letters for a couple
of years and it has been life-changing. She taught my daughter a way
to read that made sense to her and it’s made all the difference.
Not to mention, Joanna is a really nice person and my daughter really
enjoys spending time with her.
