Testimonials

“We are working with Kathy, an amazing literacy teacher. One of the most patient teachers I have ever known.”  - Fiona S., Encinitas, CA  3/26/2017


“My daughter recently completed a class with Kathy Kendrick and I could not be more thrilled.  It was EXACTLY what she needed to build her confidence and see literature as a powerful source in her life (it already was, but Kathy’s caring and insightful teaching just helped her to see it.) She walked away proudly using new vocabulary words in her everyday speaking and loved every minute spent in the class. Thank you for such an excellent experience.”  - KM, Jamul, CA  12/28/18


“My mom taught her children how to love learning and exploring and investigating. She fostered curiosity and creativity.  I’m so thankful that she homeschooled me.”

Ms. Kendrick has been an amazing instructor for both my children. She keeps them focused and still has fun with them. Every week, the kids talk to me after class for about an hour just telling me about what they did and it's refreshing to see them actually enjoy learning. It takes a truly gifted person to keep a kid's attention this long and at their request, we are signing up for the next class in the Spring. Great job with having her on your staff!!! She's an invaluable asset!!! My kids are aged 12 & 15
