Testimonials

What are people saying?

Here’s just a small sampling of reactions and testimonials from our amazing students and parents. We’d love to help your student!

“I am so grateful to be part of the La Jolla Learning works community now more than ever. Just knowing that my child is guaranteed a set amount of individualized and high-quality work time takes so much pressure off the overall home learning experience. It gives both parent and child some valuable breathing room, and reduces the amount of nagging and stress in our daily routine. The switch from in-person to virtual tutoring was an easy one to make, and both my child and I agree that the content and quality remains consistent. The tutoring sessions have come to be a reliable and reassuring constant for us both during this time of great disruption.”

“Lily LOVED Bree today. This is a great match. Thanks. Lily thinks she didn’t get the math sheet for homework. It wasn’t mandatory and she can get it Thur. She was very excited to show me the algebra she learned, and then she couldn’t locate it. This is the FiRST time that I have seen her get excited over math! Congrats ”

Ryan and I had Emily's midyear conference with her teacher today, and it was absolutely the best conversation we've ever had with a teacher. I hope you'll forgive some gushing, but I want to share it with you just because I'm so grateful to Danielle. Em is improving in virtually every area, and it's absolutely wonderful to see. Em's teacher has been doing monthly DRAs to help track Em's progress, since long plateaus have been a problem for her in the past. Since she started tutoring with Danielle, Em has gone up a reading level every single month, from a level 10 in September to a level 18 yesterday. It took the whole of first grade for Emily to go from a level 4 to a level 8, and this included extra support at school and twice weekly tutoring after school for the second semester - this steady improvement is an incredible change from what we've seen in the past. Em seems to have genuine strategies now to approach unfamiliar words. Before working with Danielle, she didn't really seem to understand that words break down into syllables, but now she uses a swooping technique when she gets stuck and it really helps her. Em's teacher also said she's a far more confident writer and speller than she was at the beginning of the year. Emily is making sustained progress, and it feels magical to us. I'm giving Danielle all of the credit!

Emily worked twice a week with a tutor recommended by her school from January to August of 2023. I'm sure she's a good tutor; she is a former elementary school teacher with her degree in reading instruction, so not just a college student or anything. We were a bit hesitant to make the change to La Jolla Learning because Em liked her tutor, but we also felt she needed more help than she was getting. Seeing how much Danielle has helped her, we feel like this is one of the best decisions we've made for Emily. I feel like Em has a specialist now who knows how to help reading click for her. I also feel like Danielle really cares about Em, and I'm sure you know how important that is as a mom. We're just really grateful, so I wanted to be sure to share our experience with you too. We're really impressed with the quality of support Em is getting, and we couldn't be happier. Thank you so much!!

“I just wanted to take a moment to tell you how much we appreciate all that La Jolla Learning is providing for our darling Granddaughter, Emma. She has already gained so much by working with Brandon, who is such a perfect match for her talents and tutoring needs. She has greatly increased her confidence and academic understanding by interacting with him, and it’s clear that Brandon has his own unique gifts in communicating with Emma and quickly ascertaining her tutoring priorities . We are gratified to find her increased confidence transferring into other aspects of her young life, both academic and social. Finally, we are privileged to read Brandon’s weekly progress reports about Emma and excited to see how she continues to develop in so many areas. Again, our thanks to the La Jolla Learning staff and especially to Brandon – a real gem!”

“Breann makes Owen want to attend tutoring. I am not even sure how this happens but he goes out of his way to miss things even to make sure he can work with her. I appreciate her willingness to find books that interest him and for taking him on as the quirky kid he is.”

“I just wanted to thank you and also let you know that Ari was accepted to The Bishop’s School for 6th grade. Thank you so much for all your help. It has strengthened Ari in so many ways. Could you please pass on our news to Marlene? We are so incredibly thankful for her. We will miss seeing her weekly. She has blessed our hearts deeply. We wish her and her family so much love and blessing.”

“Our experience with all of you has been amazing. I would love to take a few minutes to share our customer experience with Megan if she is ever interested. I’ve been impressed with the overall experience and shocked (in a good way) by the attention to detail across the board.”

La Jolla Learning has been an invaluable resource for the families I advocate for. They’re dedicated to understanding each child’s unique learning profile and provide tailored services in tutoring, educational therapy, and executive functioning skills. They go above and beyond by reviewing reports to create an individualized curriculum and in finding a good match with the tutor based on the students’ needs. The Mind Print evaluation reports have been monumental, providing insights into the students’ learning profile, benefiting not just the student and family, but the teachers working with the student.

“Thank you for this message about Lucas. He is learning, listenings and showing off his skills. It is a ray of sunshine for us while we are sheltering in place in Colorado. Thank you for all you are doing for Lucas.”
