"It has been an absolute pleasure working with Debbie this year. We always looked forward to her kind, professional, and positive presence week after week. She was able to help our daughter work through a wide variety of subjects and was excellent at meeting my daughter’s unique learning needs. I highly recommend her services to any family looking for a tutor, and we look forward to working with her again next year!"
