Parent Advisement

Parent involvement is key to a student’s academic success, which is why we extend our expertise to parents. Teaching parents the skills to assist their children on their learning journey enables parents to make informed decisions about their child’s academic future.  We can also help answer questions about public and private schools, regular and special education, retention and advancement as well as serve  as a liaison between the school and home in teacher-parent meetings and school staffing.

​I wanted to say that Pat has done a wonderful job with D. We have greatly appreciated her kind spirit, her incredible patience, and the extra ways she made things work this summer. I know it would benefit D. to continue during the school year. – A thankful parent

My son, Mark, was a kid who had to find his way to learn. Ava White gave that gift to him. He learned how to study and found the best way for him to learn. He will be graduating from Georgia Tech in 2008 as a Mechanical Engineer. Thanks, Ava.    —Martha Zoller

I just wanted to let you know how much I appreciate all the work Charles Stills did with Lance. Lance passed his graduation math test and received his diploma. Charles taught him more in two months than he learned in three years of high school.  I will gladly recommend your Tutorial Services to anyone that needs one. Thanks. —Connie Propes

I highly recommend Ava White as a Wilson Instructor. Ava has been instrumental in teaching my daughter to read. Upon consultation with Ava, she was tested for the Wilson Reading Program. What a difference! She is a voracious reader now and her Friday spelling tests are no longer a chore.  Ava is able to make challenging work understandable and fun. I have recommended Ava and the Wilson Reading Program to my friends and family, and I recommend Ava to you.  
—Nonnie Marett Day

My child was apprehensive about whether this reading tutoring would add to her already stressful school work load. It did not take long for her to see improvement in her reading from each tutoring session. She looks forward to working with Mrs. White and has benefited from Mrs. White’s positive attitude.  I highly recommend Mrs. White as a Wilson Learning System trainer. Her knowledge and her ability to interpret the program to others make her a great asset.
—Sally McCoun

I just wanted to let you know that Brad has thoroughly enjoyed your Study Skills class. He’s looked forward to every class. I used to teach the Cornell notetaking class when I taught high school and your notes are more indepth than mine.  I believe this class has helped Brad enormously as he enters middle school where there is more accountability and lecture. Thanks for such a good class and for being a great teacher. I would definitely recommend this class to any parent. It adds depth and reinforcement to alot of what teachers are already doing. —Karen Weaver
