Rita was a reading tutor for our son when he was in first and second grade. His teachers were concerned that he was not progressing at grade level and was not responsive to their efforts and attempts to engage him in the classroom. He was beginning to show behavioral problems, which his teachers felt were a result of his feeling frustrated and angry at not being able to pick up on reading as easily as he did most everything else.
From her first visit to our home Rita was able to engage him and I feel truly understand his sensitive ego. It was amazing to listen to her work with him and peek in on them from time to time for me to incorporate new ways to help him practice in between her visits. If we had not moved mid school year last year she would still be working with our son. She is a gifted tutor and educator who truly understands children and how to engage them in an honest, fun and supportive way.
