"Weekly tutoring sessions with RLS Tutoring has given our sixth grader more confidence in terms of organization, preparedness and having a true understanding of the current materials that are being covered in all subjects. We didn't know what to expect when we started this tutoring program last school year. The sessions - including summer tutoring - have exceeded our expectations in all ways. I have listened in on a few of the sessions and I can honestly say, our RLS Tutor / Mrs. Biegalski is really engaging my son and helping him understand very important concepts. I know he's better prepared each week as a result."
"Kathy has worked with our twin sons over the last three years. She does an amazing job tuning in to what they need and has a different approach depending on the individual needs. She has a unique ability to access the areas they need the most help in and motivates the student to do their best. Kathy has a special gift in connecting with a child and helps them build up their confidence levels along with learning
and organizational skills."
"Kathy Biegalski is a "hands on educator" who is always available to her students. I am impressed by her thorough and compassionate teaching style. She is tutoring both of my children.
They are both on honor roll this semester and we are all thrilled!"
