    Mrs Templeton is a wonderful teacher, and mentor. She helped our daughter immensely through some very difficult early reading comprehension issues. She was able to initiate, and reinforce some very useful strategies to enable our daughter to read and comprehend at a much higher level. Additionally, she has a very warm disposition and she was able to bring out the very best in our daughter through her teaching skills. We are very appreciative of the strides that our daughter made under Mrs. Templeton's careful tutorlege and as such, we highly recommend her tutorial, and teaching abilities.
    Sincerely,
    — Earl and Beth Keisling. Ridgefield, Ct.

    Barbara,
    Thank you for the time you spent tutoring Liam in Math and assessing his reading skills. Your gentle and caring approach made Liam feel so comfortable with you and as a result he was receptive to learning. You always encouraged him which prompted him to try harder on his math facts. You were able to teach him the importance of focusing on his work and consequently, his math grade went up at the end of 3rd grade! Thanks Barbara!
    — Sincerely, Cathy Drury

    Mrs. Templeton has been tutoring my son for the past 2 years. She has been working with him on a variety of subjects and in particular has focused on his reading, writing, vocabulary. She uses different techniques and has engaged him in a series of projects to make his learning more effective. She knows how to handle his behavior challenges and turn them into learning opportunities. My son's reading and writing capabilities have been greatly enhanced as a result of her tutoring efforts. I would recommend Mrs. Templeton without reservation.
