Please describe your student and why you qualify for tutoring.
Kristali is a very caring 9-yr. old girl who enjoys singing, dancing, and coloring, but has had difficulty with reading and math in the past. She has seen a school specialist for these 2 areas at her previous school. She attended Sylvan Learning Center for 2 mo., and made little improvement. She moved schools due to parent's work schedule and we have seen a great decrease in her reading, vocabulary & math reading problems. I am seeking out for additional support/help for my daughter. In regards to her siblings, she has an older sister and has lost a brother to SIDS.
What are your greatest hopes for your student?
To improve in her reading and math, but primarily to enjoy these content areas.
What are you most grateful for?
I am grateful for my family that we are together, healthy & supportive of one another.
Please describe specifically what your student needs help with.
