She has a great formula and strategies to approaching the reading portion of the SAT/ACT. She will explain her strategies and give the student time to practice these on their own time. Then when they meet together she reviews with the student any of the answers the student missed.

Awesome experience! Love the practical approach to her lessons and tips for parents. She was always prompt with her replies and made scheduling changes to accommodate.
- Lauren G. from Friendswood, TX
She was straight to the point, explained everything clearly, and made sure Cameron understood what she was explaining. Cameron enjoyed Gaye and would like her to return for more lessons.

She is teaching my son how to write non-fiction essays. Right now she is working on hooks. She is very knowledgeable and patient. My son really enjoys her class.

Gaye was extremely impressive in her first lesson with both of my girls. One is in elementary school and one is in middle school. We will be continuing weekly lessons and I am confident they will improve their reading comprehension abilities with Gaye. I just hope Gaye doesn?t correct my poor grammar and sentence structure of my review. ????
- Karen S. from Sugar Land, TX
Gaye checked with me what my expectations and area for improvement for my daughter's ahead of time. She came in prepared and taught my daught great reading techniques. Looking forward to the next lesson.

My daughter is in desperate need of someone to help her get organized in school. She had some great ideas that will work for her and I?m hoping these help her out!!!

Gaye exceeded our expections on every level. She is professional, friendly, flexible (Skype,) structured & exceptionally prepared. She recently helped our now, HS Senior daughter, who has Inattentive ADHD, with her college essay & connected well with her. She provided our daughter with patience, exceptional support, suggestions & notes for her as well as follow up sessions with us, We made Gaye aware of our time frame. She made herself available & worked diligently to completion and we are ecstatic with the results. We knew we made the right decision the moment we spoke to Gaye & would not hesitate to reach out again in the future. Thank you again Gaye! You are truly the best! Highly recommend!! (5 sessions)

Gaye knows exactly what most students lack in solving SAT reading questions and she came with her own well prepared materials. My son satisfied with his first session with her.

I am so impressed by her work ethic and very confident that my daughter is in good hands and will excel. Looking forward to working with her more! Thanks, Gaye, you rock!

Gaye was very quick to respond. She did a great job helping me brush up my skills on Micosoft Word and Excel in preparation for a new job. I would highly recommend her to anyone needing help in this area.

Gaye's extensive knowledge of SAT has been a great help teaching my son how to best approach preparing for SATs. She has also provided great assistance in preparing essays for applications and has offered several amazing alternative suggestions. I was amazed to hear her spin to a subject that I assumed was moot and turn it into a very delightful and fresh concept. I completely trust her knowledge of English and she has been able to answer all of my son's questions. I am very happy that she is tutoring my son and we are looking forward to great SAT results due to her efforts. Thanks Gaye.

Last Thursday my daughter had her first class with Ms. Gaye. She liked it so much. Ms. Gaye is very nice, patient and well prepared. She listens to our request. Thanks.

I was happy with her help on my college admission essays. We worked on grammar, wording corrections, and advice on content. She provides the corrections marked with a different color so they easily show on your essays. Overall, I'm happy with the result.

I am very impressed with the tutoring that Gaye has been providing my son. She is a very positive and encouraging tutor. She is also very patient and friendly. I would certainly recommend her to any one.

Gaye is helping me, an older adult, improve my skills with using a computer. She is very knowledgeable and is open to whatever I'd like to learn. She is prompt, pleasant, a good teacher, and even provides notes for me to use to review what she's taught me.

Ms Gaye is a super tutor, she is very professional and keeps to time. She has an understanding of the subject and the test requirement. She has the needed materials and how and where you can get them for yourself. Ms Gaye, you sure know your stuff, please keep it up.

Ms. Gaye, was on time and very friendly. My daughter seemed to feel comfortable with her right away and so did I. She also came prepared and ready to dive right into things. Throughout the session my daughter was engaged in learning and the entire session went very smoothly. Thank you so much for a great tutoring session. We look forward to next week.

Gaye has been wonderful to work with. She is prompt to arrive for meetings. She makes notes to keep track of my goals and arrives prepared to help me make progress towards them each time we meet. She is polite, professional, and articulate. I feel fortunate to have found her and look forward to working with her in the future.
