“My son Joseph has been homeschooled for two years. I really believe that homeschooling is the perfect way for kids to learn. In school, if you have a child like Messi, the soccer player, then he has to stay on the bench until the rest of the class learns to play like he does. The best player is being held back because of the other students. This new never happens because every human being is unique.
This is Joseph’s first year at Motivating Minds, and it has been more than incredible Academically he has learned a lot, at his own pace, and according to his own interest (which is math). He has advanced so much. His handwriting, reading, and reading comprehension has all improved which is great, but what matters the most is how happy and proud of himself he is now. The love the teachers at Motivating Minds have for their students is immense. Joseph used his bike to go to Motivating Minds everyday and as soon as he arrive home (sometimes a little later because he forgets) he texts his teachers that he has arrived safe. This is because they care, and it is not just a relationship in the class, it is beyond that. All the field trips are amazing, the space is full of love, the art is fantastic, how they plan the classes are great, and they are always open for improvement. The kids have P.E. now! For me, Motivating Minds is like my dream come true.
Christine, Katie, and Monica, my humble and huge thanks for everything you have done for Joseph. I wish you all the best, and I hope that this beautiful work can extend to more children.”
“As a parent of a child with special needs, I am grateful for Ms. Ortega. Ms. Ortega has been working with Tommy for the past 5 years, during which he has grown emotionally and behaviorally by leaps and bounds. Ms. Ortega is contstantly changing and creating new strategies to keep Tomas engaged. She works closely with his teachers, to make sure that he can assimilate the material being taught. Ms. Ortega’s knowledge and expertise are quickly apparent when one observes her interaction with Tommy. What strikes me the most about her, though, is her dedication, and the affection wth which she treats my son. I am certain she is a big reason for his success.”
Christine has tutored my two sons for several years with great success. They are currently in 5th and 1st grade respectively. Her teaching approach is focused and observant; she is quick to address areas my sons need more help with and applaud the milestones they achieve. I highly recommend Christine’s tutoring; the extra time she has spent with our boys has helped them improve their study skills, deepened their understanding, and given them confidence in knowing there are different ways to solve a problem.
“Christine knew how to work with Jake in a way that not everyone did. She would always try to implement different strategies to ensure that he understood a concept. She not only helped with his behavior plan at home but in his public school classroom. On occasion, she advocated for me in improving strategies with his teachers when he was having difficulty in class.”
