I continue to see the positive impact that Kathy McIntosh has on my daughter’s school work. Kathy works with my daughter in all of the basic subjects (and we will add Spanish next year!) — helps to keep her organized, teaches her effective study and test-taking skills, and insists on thoughtful oral and written communication. Kathy’s assistance in helping my daughter keep up with her increasingly complex math assignments has been especially valuable, and gives my daughter the confidence she needs to be a successful student. Having worked with Kathy now for several years, I can recommend her wholeheartedly — and with her help and encouragement, my daughter has earned straight A’s throughout her entire first year of middle school!

We were looking for someone to help our daughter improve her reading skills, and we are so lucky to have found Kathy. Our daughter’s reading has progressed faster than we had hoped, and Kathy is just as proud and excited when our daughter hits a new milestone. Kathy is incredibly committed, organized and results oriented—and our daughter loves their time together. It’s been so wonderful to see our daughter’s confidence soar, and to watch her reading skills (and her love for reading) grow.

Kathy has been working wonders with our daughter for the past two years, tutoring her in the key elementary school subjects of reading and math. Our daughter is in the Spanish immersion program and Kathy has helped our child improve not only her skills (with measurable advances in her reading level, for example), but her confidence as well. I also like the fact that Kathy is proactive about reviewing our child’s progress reports from school to see areas for focus. And Kathy has a great way of interacting with our child, making learning fun. Five stars!

I cannot say enough great things about Kathy! She has helped our son navigate his way through middle school. He’s learned time management and organizational strategies that have enabled him to do well on tests and exams. More importantly, he feels much more prepared and confident in school. It’s been an amazing transformation to watch as a parent.

Kathy manages to both hold high expectations as well as take an individualized approach to working with her students. In my case she has been working with my son on his reading and writing over the past 18 months. She makes tutoring sessions fun and challenging. My son is motivated to do his best work for Kathy. She also makes sure to stay connected with my son’s classroom work—touching base with his classroom teacher several times during the school year and ensuring that she reviews his report cards. Through Kathy’s support, my son has made significant academic progress.

We cannot be more thrilled with our tutor, Kathy McIntosh! She is dedicated, caring, flexible and communicative, and has surpassed all of our expectations. Within just a couple of months of working with our daughter, she was able to get her from a level where she was just ‘making it’ to a level where she is highly proficient. This has not only led to a great improvement in our daughter’s academic achievement, but has also contributed to her having increased self-confidence. Our experience with Kathy has been excellent, and we highly recommend her as a tutor!
