Testimonials

Read what these lovely people have to say about their meaningful learning experiences in The Studio:


After being tutored by Remy for the state test, my daughter's score went from a 3 to a 4 on the ELA portion--a huge relief now that we are facing high school admissions. Not only that, Remy taught her valuable mindfulness skills that she continues to use in a multitude of stress-inducing situations (or just to help her get to sleep at night!). Remy's gentle and encouraging manner made her sessions a pleasure. We are very grateful.

"Mommy, is it ok if I read a few more pages?" I never thought I'd hear my 2nd grade son say those words...ever. A boy who was often intimidated by the written page and shut down when it was "time to read," has now become a youngster who enjoys sounding out words on street signs and business awnings, while walking through our neighborhood. Rembert's calming presence, patience, and ability to be flexible with each child's individual needs were exactly what my son needed to build a relationship of trust so that he felt protected and cared for in a positive learning environment. I couldn't recommend Rembert more highly!

Remy Block is a truly talented and skilled writing and ELA tutor. Remy worked with my daughter during the high school application process, helping her with essays as well as general test and interview preparation. Remy’s way of connecting with young people really inspires them to find and express their own voice in writing and speaking. She is enthusiastic, experienced, and encouraging. Working with Remy gave my daughter the confidence to take her writing to the next level and injected a breath of fresh air (and even some enjoyment!) into the high school application process.
