Just wanted to check in with you and let you know that I just finished reading Frankenstein and actually read every word!
I actively read the whole time, I underlined quotes, I used post-it's, and did chapter summaries!!! Oh yeah, and I didn't fall asleep! So thank you for teaching me how to read more effectively because it's really helpful!!

Our 9th grader, "G", began his High School career last September. Unbeknown to my husband and I, he was failing miserably in class. He was not turning in his homework nor doing it. Since working with Ashley, G's work has improved significantly. Ashley has been in constant touch with all the pertinent people at G's school, gives us a daily breakdown of his workload and nurtures him with his executive functioning skills. Ashley Feinstein has been a life raft to our Titanic. No more tears, no more stomach aches. She is a teacher...a teacher of life skills, an engaged, compassionate friend and mentor. If you want to turn your child's life around...run, don't walk, to her office. Just don't take G's appointment times, as we plan to be with 'Team Ashley' for as long as she'll have us! Thank you Ashley! You are our rudder...

Ashley has gone well beyond our expectations in terms of her commitment and skill in addressing our son's multiple challenges. She draws on a wide variety of modalities to create a seamless and fun experience for him, while remaining steadfastly focused on our agreed-upon learning goals. Yet she is incredibly flexible and facile, able to incorporate new information into her plans at a moment's notice. She is a full and enthusiastic member of our son's support team, which includes his teachers, behaviorists, psychiatrist, social skills teachers and psychologist. Ashley always responds quickly and affirmatively to our queries and suggestions. In less than a year's time, we have seen our son go from being unwilling to put a couple of sentences together to writing stories and short books. We feel so supported by her, and we know that our son is so much better off for their work together. Ashley is top of the line.

Ashley came into our lives like an angel of mercy! We had been looking for a home-school teacher for our fifth-grade son when she was recommended to us, and what a relief it was to meet her! She is a dedicated, thoughtful and passionate educator who brings much expertise and experience with her. She does a thorough job, not just teaching facts, but training our son to be prepared for whatever organizational, grammatical or formatting responsibilities he may encounter. At the same time, she encourages in our son a healthy self-awareness and pride in work, and expects him to do his best at every opportunity. She has expanded his curriculum in many areas and always seems to be looking for ways to improve it. And finally, perhaps most importantly, our son really likes her! We consider ourselves lucky to have her teaching our son.
