While growing up, and as an adult, I have worked with children and adults of many ability and disability levels. My parents adopted 14 special needs children with various disabilities, and as the oldest daughter, I was there to assist them in learning life skills, scholastic skills and interpersonal skills. It was at this time I learned to implement some of the teaching methods I employ, which incorporate elements of Orton-Gillingham and the work of Dr. Glenn Doman; that is, a multi-sensory...
This is only the 2nd session and my son?s grades have already started improving. Theresa totally gets that not all children learn the same and was able to determine what works best for my son. He has gone to many tutors and the sessions have always felt more like a chore for him but with Theresa, he said he couldn?t wait to see her again! She is fun, keeps him completely engaged, and has an unmatched adaptability that is tailored for each kid?s needs. She was able to restore my sons confidence in his abilities in such a short time frame and for that I am eternally grateful. ???? She is just what my son needed and right on time! #ThankGodForHer #WhatABlessing ????????

Helped me on the writing basics(grammar, punctuation, and MLA) in wich I was really rough at. Also, provided in depth instruction, and challenge me to become a better writer.

She helped me understanding a lot of words and she read everything with me. She was really patient and listened to everything I said, put a lot of attention on my reading and corrected me every time I said something wrong.

This was our first visit and I was pleased. Theresa gave us ideas to do with our child until the next session. I got insight into my kids brain that I never knew before. I'm happy with our choice. Thanks Theresa!

Theresa is an awesome person. She is very welcoming and my daughter loved the fact that there was someone to sign with her. With Theresa's help our family is using sign language and speech at the same time. We can't wait for another lesson. Highly recommended

Theresa has been working with my 9 year old son for almost a year. She is very knowledgeable in many areas. In addition to academics, she has been helpful to my son in developing his executive skills. She is wonderful at adapting her approach as she develops and as she receives input from us and from his teachers. She has been a wonderful asset in my son's improvement in his performance.

My experience has been enlightening, direction driven, strengthening, and encouraging. My tutor has a genuine appeal and I like her decentralized approach to studying. She has helped me to connect the dots to my own areas of weakness, and provided me with constructive guidance to a check and balance study style that will measure ones outcome. I have noted her constant evaluation of me in each tutorial session which has given me insight to her customized approach based upon individual needs vs. a standardized study plan.

My son (age 9) loves working with Ms. Theresa. I thought he would complain having to do tutoring two days a week but he looks forward to her coming. He realizes she is here to help him be successful. Thanks.

Theresa has been great for our son who is ADHD and Dyslexic. She knew right away how to find the various areas that he needed to strengthen and they hit the ground running. She has worked extensively with Dyslexia and it shows in her ability to provide him with the tools he needs to move forward through his learning difference as well as 'reel' him back in when he loses focus or "leaves the room" as she calls it. We have seen improvement in his spelling, memorization, word comprehension, retention of what he is learning and overall reading which is getting quicker along with reading comprehension. All of this in less than two months! We have also seen a difference in his self esteem, and that is great for any child! Theresa is great and we look forward to a long tutoring relationship. As she always says, she works herself right out of a job! What a great approach to getting every child past issues and on with life.

I'm calling Theresa a "coach", because that is the capacity for which I am hiring her for - a life coach. Theresa quickly deduced various aspects of my personality from an email I sent her before our first session. She hit it right on the money. She will be happy to know that I completed my homework assignment within 24 hours after our session, instead of waiting until the last minute before our next session, as is my usual method. I hired her because I need someone to essentially hold my hand and show me another and better way until it becomes the new me. And she has already suggested a timeline, giving me the expectation that some day down the road I will be on my own. I always seek instant gratification, and that has never served me well in life. In our first session, Theresa addressed that issue. In fact, as I write this, I can hear the voice in my mind saying "I hope this coaching doesn't take too long, because I don't have a lot of time. I have so many things that I want to do, and I don't have forever." Yes, there is some work to do. I get the strong feeling that Theresa is very patient. She'll hang in there with you until that ah-ha moment arrives. And that's when she will slide her chair back, gently stand up, smile, and give you a humble standing ovation. "Well done. You're ready."

Theresa has made a wonderful change in my son's academic life. He started tutoring in preparation for his ISEE test and we decided to continue seeking her help thereafter. She has become part of his academic success. Theresa is very patient and finds the student's strength to better understand the topic on hand. My 15-yr old son is comfortable to make questions and uses his time wisely. We will continue to seek her help because she is also very reliable, she will work with the student's schedule the best way she can. We have only positive remarks to make about Mrs. Theresa, she is a great tutor.

Theresa has been an amazing tutor for our 6-year old granddaughter. The last five sessions with our granddaughter has been very successful. She has moved up to the next reading level in her class, as well as developed a love and appreciation for reading. We have seen a great improvement in her blending, reading, spelling, and recognition of words. We have been impressed with Theresa's talent and her tender, compassionate interaction with our granddaughter. Our granddaughter looks forward to each of her sessions with Theresa. Theresa has also given our granddaughter's parents very helpful and practical tools to help our granddaughter focus and progress forward. When we first sought out a tutor in March, our granddaughter's teacher had just suggested to her parents that she might need to repeat Kindergarten if she did not pass the state-required TPRI test. We are happy to report that our granddaughter's teacher recently sought out her parents to let them know (1) how impressed she was with Ireland's improvement, (2) that our granddaughter passed the TPRI test, and (3) she received a score of Developed in all areas of the test. We know this was made possible by Theresa's tutoring. It's given our granddaughter a new confidence in her learning abilities. It's exciting to see her pick up books on her own now and read them all by herself! We look forward to continuing with Theresa's tutoring, and are excited to see our granddaughter's progress as she moves into first grade under Theresa's guidance.

This was the first tutoring session my daughter had and I felt so good after their session. Theresa is really awesome. She came prepared and very understanding of my daughter's dilemmas in math. I look forward in continuing the tutoring sessions for my daughter with her. She is so awesome! Thank you Theresa! You are awesome!!! Since Theresa has been helping my daughter with her math she seems to be a little more confident about her work. She still has trouble but seems to tackle it in a better way. Theresa is such a God send. She really has such great patience with kids. Right now it is difficult for both my kids as we just moved. Theresa seems to understand and has patience of iron!! I still think she is an awesome tutor and hope to continue with her as long as my daughter needs her. Thank you Theresa!

I want to thank the people of WyzAnt. I have learned so much from Theresa in these past few weeks. She really has opened up my eyes and has truly believed in me and the goals I am trying to achieve. I couldn't have asked for a better, more qualified educator to help me become an excellent educator in my field. Thank you so much
- Lindsi C. from Arlington, TX
My daughter is really enjoying working with Theresa! She is very patient and has unique ideas to get kids involved and interested in exploring their creative side. You can tell she truly cares about her students.

I want to thank you, WyzAnt, for sending the best teacher, ever. I have never, ever had as much learning in my life as I have had since I met Theresa. I love reading more, I understand how to spell better, as well. I'm learning a lot about writing good lesson plan and how to do different things on the computer. I have learned more in 3 months than in the past 45 years of my life. If I had all this knowledge from an early age. I would be a better person now. Miss Theresa is the type of person who makes you want to go higher and higher in education. I don't want to stop learning here. She is the best teacher ever. I recommend that WyzAnt acknowledge her. Thank you very much. She is the best....
