"We found Mia through a family in my son's kindergarten class. Within 4 weeks, his handwriting had improved so much, and the frustration was totally gone. We noticed an immediate change in his desire to read things and his excitement of learning new words. The methods Mia taught him gave him the confidence every week to ace every spelling test, finish every reading assignment, and find the joy and pride in reading everyday things. She has a true gift for teaching!"
"My twin daughters did not pass their initial pre STAAR test and we were told they could use the help of a tutor. I found Mia based on a wonderful recommendation of someone we think highly of. The first time she arrived, she set the ground rules as to help the girls and help us not interfere with her process. After a few months of working with her, the girls reading level has accelerated tremendously. They both went from 25% to 65% in 2 months, passing with flying colors. Mia is so amazing with the girls. I call her my fixer. I'm so happy to have found her."
"My son is autistic and in special education classes at his school. He could decode but not comprehend anything he was reading. Within 3 months of tutoring, he was able to advance to several reading levels and was comprehending sentences more proficiently than before. His teachers and therapists noticed a marked improvement in his reading and writing skills. Mia's methods have proven to work with my son, and his reading is continuing to improve every day because of her techniques. We are so blessed to have found her. Her book is an asset and requirement for any parent who wishes to have their child read better with confidence, understanding and proficiency."
"I contacted Ms. Mia because my son was struggling with reading and writing in kindergarten. She was able to establish the foundation that he was lacking and soon filled in the gaps in his learning. My son's confidence grew as he became a strong reader and writer. Mia also worked with my older son, a 3rd grader. His writing was full of spelling errors although he had good grades in spelling because he memorized words before the tests. Mia was able to correct his spelling errors, but not through memorization. Rather, she taught him strategies regarding phonics, suffix usage, etc., so that he could write words in a meaningful and intelligent manner. Ms. Mia is a very talented teacher whose unique methods have made a such a difference in the education of my two sons."
"We have been working with Ms. Mia for about a year and a half and are so happy with the results. Even though we were told by our daughter's school that she was reading at grade level, we knew something wasn't right. Sure she knew sight words and yes, she could even "read" short stories that were given to her at school, but she couldn't truly read. She was unable to read very simple stories at home or just words that we would see on packages or doors, for example. She had trouble even sounding out the simplest of sounds and/or words. Ms. Mia was quickly able to identify her weaknesses and began working with her. My daughter is now able to decode words and truly read. She is even reading above grade level now. We are choosing to stick with Ms. Mia because we have more faith in her teaching techniques than in that of our local school."
"Our son quietly struggled with school, specifically, reading and writing. It wasn't until a friend referred Mia to tutor him did we realize he had been memorizing and interpreting pictures, rather than using phonics to sound out the words. Mia's method doubled his reading and writing scores. Her instruction is a direct, phonetic foundation to help children read and write. Not only did his scores improve, he gained confidence and now takes the lead to do homework and participate in class. Our son is a happy child at school due in part to Ms. Mia."
"My son began working with Mia a little over 6 months ago. Prior to that time, my son had been attending Kumon for a full year with very little success. We were referred to Mia by a good friend whose sons also had success with Mia's reading methods. My son was getting ready to enter Kindergarten and I wanted to make sure he wasn't falling behind. Many of his friends had also attended Kumon, but my son had been having a tough time with it. They were not teaching him how to read, only how to memorize pictures. None of the "tutors" at Kumon took the time to TEACH him how to read properly. And that left me with many frustrated days of doing Kumon homework with him and feeling like he just isn't getting it. I'm not a teacher so for me to try to properly teach my child to read was not easy. I felt inclined to hire someone who specializes in that area and knows what they are doing. Needless to say, we were beyond pleased with Mia. Immediately, my son took to her and to her methods, and within just a couple of sessions, we knew we had made the right decision in switching to Mia from Kumon. In the few short months that he's been working with Mia, she has taught my son to read and he is ahead of most of his classmates already. My sons's teacher told me that he is making great progress and has accelerated ahead of his class. And nothing is sweeter to my ears than hearing my kindergartner read to me -- we are so very proud of him. We couldn't be more grateful to Mia and highly recommend her to anyone whose child is struggling or just needs that extra push with reading."
"Ms. Mia was recommended to us by another family in our daughter's class. I felt that my daughter was behind scholastically, which Ms. Mia confirmed. She knew how to diagnose the deficiencies and came up with a plan to get her caught up. Ms. Mia understands how kids think and knows how to teach them effectively. I learned a lot myself about what teaching strategies do and don't work. My daughter is now doing much better in class. It's no wonder that Ms. Mia is in high demand!"
