My daughter never was a fan of tutors, and the whole process of preparing for SAT’s was a dreaded endeavor…but we have to say the sun shined down on us when we hired Nancy Davenport, coach, tutor par excellence on this crazy path of getting our daughter up to speed for the SAT’s. She got her! Nancy has the special ability to communicate with teenagers, motivate them to see beyond their immediate desires and demands. She is a master balancer between discipline, inspiration and motivation. Nancy made our daughter accountable to herself and the process, which isn’t easy in a challenging teenager. Nancy was flexible, cheery and incredibly competent. She was equally successful, referring her on to other families, with totally different kids’ personalities and needs. Honestly, after she moved on, we were sad to no longer have her around!
