I want to thank you from the bottom of my heart for your dedication to my daughter during the past several months. Without your kind and patient attention, she would have fallen to the bottom of the barrel in algebra very quickly, and would never have been able to recover. She worked very well with you, and while I know there were some rough spots, you kept her on task and – most importantly – feeling good about herself that she was able to do those things she never thought she could do. Math is very difficult for her, as you know, and yet I heard you two talking and laughing during your work together and I knew you had the magic touch needed to make her care. I will be delighted to provide references for you for years to come, and I again thank you for being such a gentle and warm person who can work with a 15 year old and not intimidate her, and even gain her confidence. I don’t know what she would have done without you!
