Calm and Confident for the Standardized Test
Dear Ms. Weiss:
 
I write to give my highest of praises to your wonderful employee, Sabrina.   After having her work with my son, Chase, for over a month,  I felt utterly compelled to write to you.   I have to say, Sabrina is a fine example of what being a great teacher stands for–patience, encouragement, kindness and intelligence.     

Sabrina did such a great job with Chase preparing him for his standardized test!  Sabrina was so thorough.  She knew just what to key into with Chase, and did so!    She also brought practice tests for us and answer keys, on subjects that only she would know that Chase would benefit from.   And very interesting, Sabrina’s calm demeanor was such a help to Chase and to me.  This is a true testament to her nature, as dealing with the public and their children around standardized testing cannot be easy.    Yet she does so with so much grace and ease.    Her calm demeanor and attitude while teaching him subjects that he did not know was one of, “Of course Chase will get these concepts!”   and therefore, he did.

As an attorney practicing law in Pennsylvania and New Jersey, I come into contact with a multitude of lawyers, witnesses, judges and people from all walks of life, everyday.   Specializing in litigation, I can tell you that my job is to know people.  And I know that your Sabrina Mammi is a GREAT REPRESENTATIVE of TOP TUTORS, LLC.  and she deserves kudos.   Thank you again for knowing what you have in your employee Sabrina Mammi.  Keep up the good work Ms. Weiss in knowing good people and great employees when you see them! 

Very truly yours,

Tracy R.

A Kind Thank You From Qatar
Hi Tracy and Stephanie,I wanted to thank you both for your help with Karim this summer. Stephanie, thanks for running such a professional service. And Tracy, you did wonders for both his confidence and his achievement. Karim worked through the packet you left him (and some of the packet from school) during the remainder of our trip. He took his make-up exam last week (after a night of jet-lag induced sleeplessness) and did just fine! So he is now in Geometry, very relieved to be there.

Math has always been a source of stress for him. After working with Tracy this summer he told me “you know it can actually be kind of fun when it’s explained well!”

Thanks again to you both. Best of luck for the new school year.

Best Regards,

Rachel

 

Inspiring Isabella

“Stephanie is a phenomenally gifted teacher. She is incredibly intelligent and is skilled in many different teaching methods and subjects. She is a naturally warm and caring woman. After meeting my daughter, she instinctively knew which method would work best to for her to better understand the subjects she was struggling with. After every session, my daughter leaves happy, capable, and empowered with a new found sense of achievement. With Stephanie’s help and encouragement, her test grades and self-confidence have improved significantly.
Stephanie also helps with teaching her students time management which is such an important discipline that will carry over throughout their lives. My daughter and I are so grateful to have such a wonderful tutor and friend in Stephanie!”

“I used Stephanie’s tutoring services for both of my children.  I was specifically interested in getting them prepared to take the standardized exams necessary for entrance into Philadelphia’s special admission schools.  Stephanie worked with my son in 3rd and 7th grade.  She worked with my daughter in kindergarten and 3rd grade. The tutoring they received from Stephanie gave them the understanding and confidence to excel on these exams.  Both children received outstanding scores and were able to get into the schools of their choice. I am confident that it was her guidance and tutoring that enabled my children to do so well.  I can recommend Stephanie highly and without reservation.”

Performance From Paige

“Stephanie makes learning fun and easy!  She helped me ace my PSSA’s and get into two incredibly hard schools.”

Working With Izzy

“Stephanie Weiss has been my 12 year-old daughter’s tutor for about two years. She is an amazing master of the learning process making it fun and mind-expanding while at the same time securing the outcome of high retention and transfer of the knowledge she teaches. My daughter eagerly goes off every week to Stephanie and returns happy and proud of her accomplishments in her session. Personally, as a retired professor of 30 years at five universities and having met many fine teachers along the way, I find her as having a natural talent for optimizing learning for students and strengthening their self-worth. I highly recommend her – just not during my daughter’s time slot.”

Doing Math With David

“Stephanie was one of the best tutors I ever had.  She would walk me through each unit and would take time to answer all of the questions that I had.  As a student I would highly recommend her!
-David (9th grader)

 

Soaring High With Sammy

“Ms. Stephanie is a very good tutor.  She helps me understand concepts and homework I didn’t get.  She also gives me tricks when taking tests and doing homework. And some times she gives me treats :)
-Sammy (fifth grader)

 

Setting High Standards For Stella

“Stephanie has markedly helped my two children understand and succeed in their math studies.  My children are four years apart, one in ninth grade and one in 5th grade…And Stephanie was able to relate to each of them in their own comprehension levels.  Their grades improved which made our lives less stressful.  I would highly recommend her for any student needing help in math and parents seeking peace of mind.
-Stella

 

Awesome Job Alexis

“We love Stephanie, God sent us an angel. For years I have enrolled Alexis into different programs to help her with her learning disabilities, but they just weren’t right for her. The day she met our daughter they bonded and Stephanie knew what Alexis needed and how to help her.  Alexis has improved so much since she’s been working with the Wilson Program. Stephanie has so much patience and she is very knowledgeable.  Her techniques are creative and designed for the individual. Thank you Stephanie for being a wonderful tutor and friend.”

Literacy Skills With Lexi

“I love working with Mrs. Weiss. She is more than a tutor, she’s a friend. She’s very informative, understanding and has a lot of patience.  I have learned so much. She teaches me techniques that I use through out my school days.  Thank you so much!”

-Lexi

 

Studying & School Work With Shane

“My 6th grade son has been tutored by Mrs. Weiss weekly for several months.  Mrs. Weiss has been focusing on reading and comprehension which has been a struggle for my son.  Working collaboratively with his teachers, tremendous progress has been made.  Mrs. Weiss has taken his assignments and broken them down by using visual tools to better enable his comprehension and understanding.  He is more confident and less overwhelmed, as am I!

Mrs. Weiss is extremely professional and thorough in both her tutoring and weekly feedback.  Her patience and positive energy are exemplary and my son looks forward to his weekly sessions.  When I first met Mrs. Weiss I had asked her if children’s comprehension skills and conceptual thinking could improve when dealing with developmental issues.  Without hesitation, Mrs. Weiss assured me that any child’s abilities could improve with the proper approach.  She has proved this to be true much to our appreciation.”

Tutoring For Tracey

“Stephanie Weiss tutored my son for three months last summer to help him stay up to speed when he started 8th grade. She was consistent and reliable in meeting her commitment to his tutoring time. My son has significant ADHD and a learning disability related to writing, which makes writing particularly difficult for him. Stephanie had wonderful way of interacting with my son that allowed him to be successful and develop more confidence in his writing ability.  It is generally a big chore to get my son to work on his writing, but he always looked forward to meeting with Stephanie and she was able to motivate him to make a sincere effort to improve.

Stephanie has also been an excellent communicator with my husband and me about how we can help our son to continue to improve academically. She provided him, and us, with clear goals that he should be working on between tutoring sessions.  By the end of the summer there was definitely an improvement in my son’s writing and his attitude toward writing.

I would strongly recommend Stephanie to anyone who was considering hiring a tutor for his or her child.”

Amazing Job Ally
“Stephanie is truly an amazing tutor.  She not only provides the knowledge to succeed, but gave my daughter the confidence to know the skies the limit.  Stephanie’s effervescent personality made learning for my daughter fun.  She created games that made the more challenging concepts easier to learn.  During tutoring sessions, Stephanie also incorporated the computer to help in understanding the material as well.  She even had my daughter send her essays and writing assignments to her e-mail address for review purposes.  Stephanie is dedicated to making sure your son or daughter succeed while providing the best tutoring services that you could ever ask for.”
