Tailored and Seamless Curriculum Design
"Sarah has been a great help to our two sons over the course of the summer. We wanted to make sure they were ready for third and fifth grade after a semester of online-only learning at school. Sarah did a great job putting together a curriculum for the two of them and then tailoring the work to their needs. Working with them online was seamless."
