My daughter had a number of learning issues identified in third grade. To help her overcome these limitations, it was suggested she work with an outside learning specialist twice a week. Michelle worked with her for the last two years of Elementary School. She was professional, skilled, and a great advocate. The techniques she used have enabled my daughter to become the confident high school sophomore she is today. Thanks Michelle!
Michelle Ross has been working with my eight year old son for the last two years. My son has dyslexia and we have seen him make tremendous progress while working with her. He always enjoys his sessions and never complains that he needs the extra help. Michelle really cares about the children she works with and this is evident in her caring attitude and communication with me, the parent. I give her an A++
