“I so was overwhelmed and impressed by you Linda and the pure light that came from within…(i felt that with all the therapy and special help) that hasn’t helped you really saw Adrienne for the Gem that she is capable of being and it was an incredible experience. I am very much excited for Adrienne to work with you. Please tell me when she can see you again.
“It was a pleasure meeting you last week. Doug and I left your office feeling much better. As soon as we got home, Doug did his homework and has continued to do his homework everyday. He’s used the assignment book you designed for him and it’s working out great. You let him know that he is capable. You let me know that he really wants to do well, but struggles a little. I understand what’s happening now and I’ve changed how I’m viewing him. Also, the tutor you sent is excellent. She’s professional, experienced and knowledgeable. He just got a 95% on his history test. That’s much better than the D’s he was getting after sitting for hours studying. At least we thought he was studying. Now we realize he was just sitting with a book and notes. He had no idea what to do and unfortunately, neither did we.
I just thanked my neighbor for recommending you. I’m just sorry that it took us until ninth grade, after the first quarter grades, to hear about you. Doug is looking forward to meeting with you next week to work on more techniques to help him in school. I know you asked me to sit in on the session so that I’d be able to work with him at home, but I’ll be out of town. His mother will be with him and is looking forward to meeting you and learning what she can do to help our son succeed.”
“Since starting with Dr. Linda my daughter enjoys reading more. She doesn’t feel like she’s being quote tutored. I think Dr. Linda shows a tremendous amount of patience with her. I think that brings out the better part of her. I think she’s brought back some of the joy to reading that she didn’t have before. A lot less frustration than was there before.”

“Dr. Linda really brought her (her daughter) grades up considerably, in . . . I think it was the first year that I started with her. Where the teachers couldn’t even believe it.
She was able to make suggestions to her teachers how to teach her, but she was also able to show my daughter ways to approach things to make it easier for her to learn.
If your kids are struggling, you should at least speak to Dr. Linda. I think everyone I’ve sent to her has started with her. She’s very good at what she does. ”

“I wish I had contacted Dr. Linda a little bit earlier when he was first having trouble with the reading because he spent the whole first year struggling with reading. I think if we had gone to Dr. Linda when I first noticed him going through trouble, he would have done much better. She just taught him in a way the schools weren’t. ”

“I looked in the phone book and that’s where I found Strong Learning and I met with Dr. Linda. And for some reason she bonded with (my son) immediately. It was the best thing. She spoke to my son for a while and had me have his vision tested, which showed he was developmentally vision delayed. He had visual processing problems. Dr. Linda helped us with that a whole lot.
I would definitely recommend Dr. Linda. She has a way. . she knows exactly how to deal with children. She’s very calming and nurturing with them. I don’t know how. She knows how to explain at their level what needs to be done. She gets through to them a way most other adults don’t.

“The two of them (Al and Linda) are paternal and maternal with the kids. There’s a true caring there. It’s almost like the kids are their own. It’s not just a job for them; they invest in the kids themselves . . .
I know they hit all levels of education. They helped kids with SAT’s. In fact, before my daughter chose a college, Dr. Linda was adamant that we make sure we had the Federal 504 classification that classifies you as handicap that entitles you to certain services, whether it be a reader or a scribe or extra time. Linda was adamant that we make sure the college will give us the extra services because she said “we were entitled to it”. Noboby else tells you stuff like that. Without Linda, we would never had known about all the resources and help that is afforded us.
