« Holly worked as a live in nanny for my family and helped to take care of myself and my two younger siblings when we were younger--I've kept in touch with her to this day and she still remains the amazing person she was years ago. She's incredibly patient and kind in her approach to education and guiding kids through all different stages of life. She is most importantly insistent on doing things the right way, and not taking shortcuts, which would make her a fantastic tutor for any child. While doing so, she is excellently qualified as an educator and open to the variety of different learning styles that different children may require to succeed. All in all, she's a fantastic person and educator, and she knows her stuff! You can trust her to do an excellent job as a tutor/teacher. »

Holly worked as a live in nanny for my family and helped to take care of myself and my two younger siblings when we were younger--I've kept in touch with her to this day and she still remains the amazing person she was years ago. She's incredibly patient and kind in her approach to education and guiding kids through all different stages of life.

She is most importantly insistent on doing things the right way, and not taking shortcuts, which would make her a fantastic tutor for any child. While doing so, she is excellently qualified as an educator and open to the variety of different learning styles that different children may require to succeed.

All in all, she's a fantastic person and educator, and she knows her stuff! You can trust her to do an excellent job as a tutor/teacher.

I’ve known Holly since my kids went to the kindergarten where she was an English teacher. She was always amazing with kids, even naughty ones. She is very energetic, witty, funny and positive. She always offered different types of activities which is essential for learning second language in a natural way. She is a top-notch professional and you will make progress very son with her. I definitely recommend Holly as the best English teacher I’ve ever known.

I worked with Holly for a year. During that time, I found her to be positive and energetic, which are essential traits for any teaching job. She also showed amazing dedicated to the school and children and great passion for her work. Furthermore, she had a great sense of humour and was loved by both staff and students.

Holly is not only extremely professional, but has a grasp on early child development that I thought were reserved for child psychologist. It completely amazed me to learn that all her teaching techniques were based on scientific research on child behavior. She never did anything "just because". Everything was designed to help my children grow into not only educated, but emotionally healthy adults. Whether you have a child with some behavioral issues, or simply want to give them a bit of a head start, hiring Holly is a decision you will never regret.
