Here's What People Think About Paula:
"My daughter has a hard time with math and money--repetition is the key with her to grasp math concepts. Paula is working on money with her. Paula is an 'out of the box' thinker and is using the US Quarters map so that my daughter can see and feel and be very familiar with quarters. They also played money games together online to make it fun. Now she can identify quarters and the value of them.
Paula is also working on English--reading comprehension/writing with her. Paula took the time to find out what my daughter enjoys, what her hobbies are, so that the reading material she chose was of high interest. She is reading with Paula the middle school series, The Cupcake Diaries (my daughter loves to bake) and I observe her being extremely engaged--she's laughing and giggling and enjoying the story, all while practicing her reading and comprehension skills.
Paula is very engaging, motivating and fun for my daughter to work with. My daughter always wants to know when the next tutoring session will be with Paula! Paula is detailed and wants to understand her student's current abilities, interests and motivators in order to achieve the most growth."
Nori, Mother of middle schooler with Down Syndrome
"I was struggling with reading so I got a tutor which was Paula. After our time together, I feel more confident with reading and I am able to understand what I am reading better. I would recommend Paula for a tutor--she was great and helpful."
Anthony, Adult with ADD
"Paula has worked with my 14-yr-old son who has autism both recently and when he was younger, just learning to read. My son was in remedial English all last year, but the lessons and learning almost completely stopped in March due to COVID19. I asked Paula to help get him ready for a typical high school English class. My son had a lot of spelling and grammar issues, did not understand some of the assignments, and was only writing 3 sentences when the assignment called for 5 paragraphs.
Paula made it fun for my son by gearing her work with him towards subjects that he enjoys. She knows how to draw on his enthusiasm and encourages him to write longer essays, taught him how to edit his work to contain fewer errors, and also helped him learn to make inferences from what he was reading.
Paula is an excellent tutor and a very positive, encouraging person. She gives me regular updates on their work and how well my son is doing. She is very easy to work with and puts in hours of preparation for his sessions---I very highly recommend Paula!"
