What Parents Are Saying About The Early Learning Place
Ms. Megan is hands down the best reading tutor we've ever had - and we've had several! My daughter fell behind in reading last year and we started working with Megan over the summer. She ended 1st grade in the bottom 10% with reading, despite extra help at school and outside of school. After 2 short months of working with Megan, she started 2nd grade at above the 50% mark for reading. Not only is she extremely skilled in her profession, Megan is able to make the tutoring sessions fun and enjoyable and makes my daughter truly look forward to their time together. We are so thankful!Cheryl
We can’t thank you enough for how engaging you have made virtual learning. He looked forward to your class everyday and I know that he just thinks the world of you! He now talks about writing in a way that he never has before, we are so grateful to have you!Alex
Mrs. Megan is one of the most energetic, enthusiastic and happy teachers I have ever seen. My 6 year old loves her to death and can not wait for his sessions with her. Being a 6 year old boy it takes a lot of energy to keep him engaged. My son used to cry with his previous teacher and said he HATED reading. Now, he will read for me without being offered a prize in return. He has not cried once because Mrs. Megan gets his learning style. Mrs. Megan is such a blessing and is very special!Deidre
My daughter was struggling so badly in ELA. She had an extremely low F on her report card. It was always a struggle to work with her at home. We started working with Megan and within a couple of months, she had significantly raised her grade!! My daughter actually looks forward to her meetings with Megan! 💜 I am beyond grateful for her! I absolutely believe she is the best!Jenny
