Helen took the time, before starting to schedule a tutor, to ask about my high schooler’s learning style, experience with tutors in the past, and how we could measure his progress. She matched him with tutors who were easy to communicate with and responsive to my son’s strengths. My son showed improvement in his Algebra class and benefited from the SAT prep sessions.

I have seen the tireless work Helen puts into finding the right tutor for each child, no matter what specialty area the student needs. She truly cares about the families and the tutors which make for strong relationships that let students reach their full potential during their tutoring sessions and beyond.

– Kate A., Tutor and Parent

We started with a reading tutor from Dynamis Learning Academy, and I’ve already seen a big improvement with my 8 year old son who was falling behind. In addition, my 10 year old has been learning writing strategies from the tutor, especially how to organize his thoughts which help him get past the first step of a writing project. This is usually the hardest step for him. I would definitely recommend Dynamis Learning Academy.
