I called Kristin at my wits end when my son Julian, a junior in high school, was struggling with writing. I could see that he had wonderful ideas and that he was certainly capable of deep thinking, but I could sense his frustration with expressing himself through the written word. I had solicited many different approaches, classes and teachers to assist Julian with writing, but nothing seemed to be giving him the confidence he needed.
Kristin's delightful personality and sensitive nature assured me that my call to her was a good choice. After just two weeks of tutoring, I noticed a shift in Julian’s thinking about writing. He was enjoying their time together, which led to a great deal of confidence and motivation to write more. Julian went on to do very well with his SAT and after his first semester of college he received top grades. --Monique Pinelli
