"The heart of the Waldorf method is that educationis an art-it must speak to the child's experience. Toeducate the whole child, his heart and his will mustbe reached, as well as the mind."- RUDOLF STEINERRave Reviews!"First, let me say that I am amazed at Jamie’sreception to tutoring with you. When I firstbroached the topic with him, he was definitely notenthusiastic. After his first meeting with you, I cansee how open and receptive he is now. I hoped thatmeeting with someone that was not a parent wouldbe a positive experience for him, and I definitelythink that is the case. So, that is a win." - Astrid S."Thank you so much for supporting Alexa throughthe college applications process. Your guidance hasbeen invaluable and has helped Alexa buildconfidence along the way." - Cathy D."... Maggie worked with Manuel.
