One of the main reasons that struggling students continue to struggle is that they lose confidence in themselves and their intellectual capabilities. Individualized instruction can help students gain self-confidence as learners because lessons are tailored to their specific abilities. As students gradually build comprehension and mastery of more complicated material, they gain the self-assurance that they have the skills they need to be successful. This, in turn, helps them progress more quickly.

"We had tried several tutoring and reading programs and been through several special teachers at school.  After just a few sessions with Rayna, X was able to "put it all together."  For the first time X looked forward to doing his studies because it was fun. Rayna had the ability to mix fun with work and keep X's attention, as well as instilling a desire for success.  I can't say enough wonderful things about Rayna's expertise and whole-heartedly recommend her tutoring services as being the very highest quality." -LB Parent of a 3rd grader

"Dear Rayna, 
Thank you for working with me this year. I enjoyed our time together on Zoom. I liked the games the best!" -LS, 2nd grader


"Rayna is really fun to work with because she plays a lot of games with me.  I learned to read because she helped me." - BR, 4th grader

"Dear Rayna,
Thank you so much for all your flexibility during COVID. I appreciate all of your dedication and hard work with our kids. They are making progress and I love to see how they incorporate what you've taught them into our school days. You have the patience of a saint. Wow! Thank you for your wonderful talent that has been such a blessing to our family." -FB, parent or 4th and 6th grader

"Dear Rayna, 
What you have done for X and our family has been truly amazing.  Before we found you I was so frustrated in trying to get X to understand simple words.  I know there is still much work to do, but I am encouraged by the progress he has made.  I love to see when he chooses to read just for the enjoyment of the story!  I'm glad it's working out that you will be able to be invested with his learning for a little while longer.  Thank you from the bottom of my heart.  You're a real blessing from God!" - MC, parent of a 9th grader


"Columbus Tutoring Services has been a lifesaver for us. We knew our son needed a multisensory approach in order to learn to read, and his twice-a-week sessions have given him the tools to succeed. He is now, most importantly, confident in his ability to read. Truly priceless." SA, parent of a 7th grader
