"We can't thank Gabby enough for all she has done with our son. His great AABL scores (which those who know have confirmed to us they are) are almost the least - she has helped him learn to focus and apply himself, and given him another example of how rewarding relationships with teachers and mentors can be. Thank you!"
~Patricia C., Mother of 2; Kindergarten Readiness & AABL prep
"We attribute much of our daughter's success throughout this arduous school process to her time with Gabby. Whether it was prep for the AABL or working on her playdate skills, she has grown leaps and bounds since we began and it is a testament to the work she did together with Gabby."
~Ellen M. (Mother of 2; Kindergarten Readiness & AABL prep)
"Gabby was my son’s writing tutor for most of the last school year. He was in fourth grade then, and was having a really hard time organizing his thoughts & getting them down on paper. Gabby was able to guide him into expressing himself and building arguments in opinion pieces. She was endlessly calm and very no-nonsense, and also quite gentle."
~Dawn K. (Mother of 1; 4th grade Reading, Writing, and Handwriting tutoring)
"Our son scored an overall 99% on the AABL test. He is a super smart kid but I have to say that Gabby prepared him so well for the AABL test. He has loved every minute of his time with Gabby – she has taught him so much. We could not have been happier with our experience!"
~Leah B. (Mother of 2; Kindergarten Readiness and AABL prep)
