Words cannot express our gratitude for taking our daughters under your wings in guiding and teaching them to their fullest potential towards building a stronger foundation in early literacy. We are extremely pleased to see our daughters growth thus far and look forward to continue working with you, and Jenna as well. If we can successfully register our daughters to the morning class at their pre-school, we would love to take you up on your offer to have both yourself and Miss Jenna teach each of our daughters one-on-one in the near future as they adore you both!
