Read Reviews for Susan Mestman
My daughter was in second grade, hated school, and had just been diagnosed with Dyslexia when Susan began tutoring her. We were looking for a tutor who could teach her the Barton Reading and Spelling program, which is a method of learning that helps children with Dyslexia learn to read, spell and write.
We began to see improvement in my daughter's reading immediately after beginning to work with Susan. Over time we saw improvement in all areas and her reading just got better and better. As her confidence rose, her stress level decreased, and we saw her relax and actually begin to enjoy school. Susan is patient with my daughter who is not always the most cooperative. She is easy to work with and comes to our house which is a game changer for a family with a very busy schedule and multiple kids going in different directions.
My daughter is now in the 4th grade and doing great. She made the A/B honor role this fall, she's zipping through her favorite Judy Moody books, and she's more confident in her work and happier than ever. I credit Susan's tutoring and the Barton Reading and Spelling program for all of this. Thank you Susan! We are forever gratefull!!!
My son was diagnosed with dyslexia last year and no phonological memory. My son was not thrilled and a little hesitant when we began tutoring. As of now he loves working with Susan. He is making great leaps and bounds and is growing more confident everyday. Thank you Susan! We think you’re wonderful.
Where do I begin? Susan is a gift!! She has been tutoring our son for almost 8 months now and the progress we have seen is beyond amazing!! She is kind, patient and nurturing - she truly cares about her students! Our son looks forward to Ms. Susan coming to work with him. She has made learning fun for him. He now has confidence that he hasn't had in a long time. Susan is amazing - highly recommend her!!
Susan has been working with my daughter for two years on reading comprehension and homework support. Susan's work has been instrumental in my daughter's improvement. I highly recommend Susan.
My friend/neighbor gave me Susan's number and I am so happy that I contacted her! My daughter is a great student, but Math wasn't her strongest subject and before she got too behind I decided to hire Susan to help her. In the beginning Lauren didn't like being tutored, but as her math grade improved she realized that it was due to the extra help that she received from Susan. She then liked her tutoring sessions with her. Susan has a way of talking and explaining things so as to not overwhelm the student. Thank you Susan!!
My daughter started her tutoring sessions after I notice that she was struggling in math. She is a good student but 4th grade math was extremely hard for her at the beginning of the school year. I found this website and contacted Ms. Susan and was immediately pleased with her and her compassion for her students. I would highly recommend Ms. Susan for any child's tutoring needs. My daughter loved attending her tutoring sessions. Ms. Susan and my daughter connected right away and had very positive tutoring sessions. She is very reliable and worked extremely well with my daughter. She is extremely knowledgeable and has great math tips, and strategies, and she communicated well with both myself and my daughter. Ms. Susan was very patient with my daughter, she made tutoring sessions fun and exciting. My daughter is confident in her math skills now and made A/B honor roll all year. To be specific, she made an "A" in math. Thank you, we could not be more pleased.
Susan is by far the very best at what she does. She has helped our daughter tremendously. She explains things in a way that really has made math so much more understandable and not dreadful for my daughter. We are so lucky to have found Susan! If you are thinking about a tutor for your student she is phenomenal!! You won’t regret it.
Susan has worked with both of my boys with reading and writing since 2014. My youngest didn’t start talking until 3 and struggled with the basics of reading ever since he started school. He eventually started receiving additional help at school but it wasn’t enough for him to catch up nor did it identify his true problems. Susan started using her skills with a learning disability program and although he wasn’t diagnosed with dyslexia (schools don’t do that) he made great progress with Susan and definitely showed signs that he had dyslexic tendencies. She gave him a marvelous foundation for him to build on. We worked with Susan until we left the area in 2018. My youngest is in a fantastic charter school now In Polk County where he is receiving small group help and is almost back on to grade level with his reading and exceeds grade level in all of his other subjects. To hear him read a book by himself is wonderful and thanks to Susan for her hard work and dedication with both of my boys. She certainly has great skills and a way about her that gets children to respond to her.
I have loved working with Susan. She's meticulous and doesn't let details slip through the cracks.
