“Ms. Kennedy’s deep interest in our son made all the difference in his attitude toward reading. She worked with him on the basic foundations of reading and we saw a huge improvement in his reading fluency and confidence almost immediately. Ms. Kennedy was able to tap in to his particular learning needs and make learning fun!”

Debbi, parent and school principal
