Chrissy was great with my girls. I recommend her tutoring very much. She is knowledgeable and kind, my girls really enjoyed her teaching.
I would highly recommend Chrissy as a tutor. With a witty sense of humor and calm, professional approach, she helped me with everything from editing an intro to philosophy paper to improving my general grammar and punctuation. With Chrissy’s help, I was able to raise my GPA half a point, which helped me get on the Dean’s list at St. Joseph’s University. Worth every penny.
