What parents and students have to say...
“Could not stop thanking me for the referral.”
Dale-Ann helped my child prepare for the OLSATs. She worked well with my child and was able to help him learn in a fun environment. As a result, he was very successful on the exam. When I recommended a friend to Elastic Minds, her son scored well beyond what she hoped for with tutoring and could not stop thanking me for the referral.
“A real gem and we feel lucky to have worked with her.”
I cannot say enough about the positive experience my daughter had with Dale during her tutoring sessions for the ECAA exams. Dale was enthusiastic, knowledgeable, and kind in all of her interactions. She came totally prepared and knew exactly what areas to target in order to ensure my daughter not only succeeded, but also, have a wonderful time in the process. She was a master at keeping her focused on tasks, which can be a real challenge for a young child! Even when we were done with the preparations, my daughter continued to ask about Dale and wanted to go back to spend more time with her. Dale is a real gem and we feel lucky to have worked with her!
“Hugely positive impact on our children.”
They have been our go to source for general and subject specific tutors for our two children who are enrolled in a top level NYC private school.
They always have quality and caring tutors who provide the needed support and reinforcement our children seek.
For over two years, my daughter has been working with Dale who has been a wonderful resource and with whom she has created a lasting bond. Dale has struck the perfect balance between nurturing our daughter, creating a positive learning environment and providing a structured approach with goals in mind.
I absolutely recommend them and believe they have had a hugely positive impact on our children.
"I don't know what kind of magic Dale-Ann had that she made learning so much fun."
I cannot recommend Dale-Ann more to your child! Dale-Ann worked with my daughter when she was in pre-K. My daughter had a strong desire to learn and fell in love with the intellectual games Dale-Ann introduced to her. It turns out that every week she looked forward to having the session with Dale-Ann over the weekend. I don’t know what kind of magic Dale-Ann had that she made learning so much fun. Even a year later my daughter kept asking “when can I have a session with Dale-Ann again?” After Dale-Ann relocated from New York to the West Coast, a colleague of hers has been working with my son on his reading. She is also so wonderful. My son is always eager to have another lesson with her.
“She tailored her teaching to fit their very different needs.”
I can't say enough positive things about Dale! Both of my children love her and she made learning fun!! She was such a positive role model for them, that they looked forward to her sessions! Both kids have very different learning styles and she tailored her teaching to fit their very different needs! She worked with them on preparing for the OLSAT and NNAT! Both of my kids placed in Gifted and Talented programs, including a Citywide! Thank you, Dale!!

"Dale has a magical ability to engage the children without making it feel like "work" for them."
Dale is an amazing tutor - she has helped my children (ages 11 and 9) with both test prep and general tutoring and we have seen great results! My children adore Dale and truly enjoy their sessions with her. Dale has a magical ability to engage the children without making it feel like “work” for them. I have truly been impressed by her level of experience and knowledge as a tutor as well as her professionalism as an educator.
