Do you...
- Get nervous when you speak in front of a group?

Nikole, is very warm and professional. I have never continued with voice lessons, I enjoyed the experience so much that I'm going to kick the bad habit of smoking and sit down and seriously figure my finances out to continue being taught by her. I cannot express enough how much fun I had...no pressure Nikole if you read this...lol

I've been a freelance writer and blogger for more than 15 years and a writing tutoring and coach for more than 10 years. Writing is my passion!

When working with students, I design tutoring experiences that are truly customized to the student's specific needs and goals. I strive to make the experience enjoyable and incorporate a variety of activities and learning experiences, aside from simply writing, into my teaching sessions.

Rebecca has been tutoring my daughter in reading. My daughter enjoys her lessons and is always excited when I tell her she has tutoring. Rebecca is very laid back and understanding as my daughter is easily distracted and wonders off topic. She is able to easily coax her back to the task at hand. She has been improving every session as Rebecca sends me updates and a type of "progress report". She also gives us worksheets to work on for homework and goes over them with her in the following session. In these hard times, I'm grateful I connected with her! She has been a great asset to my daughters education.

"I did 2 sessions with Matt while I was home in preparation for my GMAT, which is in 3 weeks. We focused on the quantitative section, which was the weak spot on my first test. Matt’s familiarity with the GMAT (both the Verbal and Math section) was evident in the first few minutes of sitting down with him. Probably even more important, given my time constraint, was Matt’s ability to quickly identify my specific problem areas (integer / geometric properties & time management on data sufficiency problems) and come up with a game plan to improve them. Matt’s teaching style helped solidify key concepts by having me walk him through my thinking on problems and correcting me only when I veered off path. This approach worked for me. After the second session, I took a practice test and my math score improved substantially. I would recommend Matt to anyone who’s serious about boosting their GMAT score."

He was struggling in his class and with his confidence in math, but after his first few sessions with Colin his quiz and test scores in algebra came up. Not only that, but he even teaches his classmates the techniques he has learned with Colin. Very impressed with our son’s progress. Thank you Colin!"
