Josh Mann was an excellent support tutor for my teen in English. He helped develop thesis statements, hooks, and reinforced the structure of the 3 and 5 paragraph essays. Not only was Josh knowledgeable, he was patient, flexible, accommodating and extremely understanding to the frustrations of a gifted student with learning challenges. Not an easy combo to contend with. I was very impressed with his quiet strength and his ability to set boundaries for time, and for the structure of the actual, physical learning space. My son was eager to learn under Josh's tutelage and felt his writer's voice was heard and appreciated. His grade increased a whole letter grade in 10th grade. Most importantly, he built such great confidence in our teen, it has transferred to this year. He now works independently in English and writing essays for History, confidently scoring above average in both classes.

Josh has been immensely helpful to my Asperger's son who is transitioning from high school to college -- both as a life skills mentor and as a skilled academic manager. He is professional, always on time, communicates well and is a pleasure to have on our team! My son has grown by leaps and bounds with Josh's help. I highly recommend him.
