Thanks for all your help
with our 8th grader
Vicky. She has an "A" because of you! We really
appreciate all of the good work you've done with
her. You have helped her relax and enjoy learning
a subject that she would otherwise disregard."

"Our son was having trouble keeping up with the math curriculum and was unable to ever finish any test on time with accuracy. He would panic, forget what he had learned. Tralee was his chosen tutor.
She took the time to explain the math concepts to him and showed him how to become a better test taker. Within a few weeks our son had gone from C and F's to A's and B's and finished the year with excellent results.
Tralee has the professional experience not only to understand how the curriculum is designed and how to teach it, but she also knows how to work with children of all ages, be patient and take away their fears."

We reached out to Tralee for tutoring to help us prepare for our move to another state. Tralee went beyond the call of duty to research the other school district's curriculum and develop a learning plan to prepare my daughter as much as possible. With only a few sessions Tralee helped my daughter feel comfortable with the basic terms, concepts, and calculations she would need. We were thrilled when my daughter got an "A" on her first math test at the new school!

Tralee worked with my 12 year old daughter once a week for over a year, and it was a very beneficial experience. My daughter had been struggling in math for quite some time, and we had tried other group tutoring services. Finding a one-on-one tutor who cares as much as Tralee does about each student was exactly what my daughter needed at that time. Tralee helped my daughter spend a productive additional hour each week going over homework or reviewing material that had not “sunk in” during the school week. Tralee is very flexible, happy to try different ways of getting to a new level of understanding, and she was also happy to work with my family’s busy schedule. I would certainly recommend her to others.

"I would absolutely recommend Tralee. Her teaching style is non-threatening and welcoming. She is able to engage my child in learning so it's and exciting. Tralee doesn't talk down to my son; she talks "to" him.
My son told me, "I'm not so nervous about math problems. I like math now! I understand it. Now I feel like I can think through a math questions first and figure it out." I am completely satisfied with the results of her tutoring with my son.

Tralee helped our 16 year-old son prepare for the ACTs and figured out his strengths, weaknesses and helped him improve in his weak areas. She also had helpful advice about taking the test tailored specifically for him, and had great feedback to offer us. We'll be using her again!"

"Tralee is a great math tutor. I am about to take the CBEST test in and I haven't worked on any type of math problems since college, so I was very out of practice. Tralee was able to reteach to me a lot of math that I had forgotten or just didn't learn the first time around. When I started, I did not feel ready for the test, but I do now! I highly recommend Tralee for a math tutor."

Tralee is a really great great tutor if you have a lot of trouble in math. I worked with her this summer to refresh my algebraic skills and to prepare for my college algebra 2 course in the fall. She is very personable and finds a way to incorporate things you are interested in with the math problems you are learning how to solve. Tralee made me feel comfortable enough to tell her when something didn't make sense, which she would then stop and we would put focus on that area of difficulty. I have improved my math skills to the point where I no longer dread the idea of math.
