I just love Ms. Novotny!!  I had a 15-year-old foster-to-adopt child in my home who deals with a lot of anxiety and was not doing well in his first year of high school.  My husband and I spent the first half of last semester tearing our hair out trying to get him to do his homework, figuring out what his assignments were since he could never remember, and walking him through his school work.  It was very stressful for us, considering the very pressurized transitional period we were in and are still going through at home.  We were told the child did well in school before we brought him to our home, but clearly the standards were different or else he couldn't deal with school given the stress of moving in with a new family. Before we found M&M Tutoring, we were spending 1-2 hours every night walking him through his assignments.  Ms. Novotny almost completely relieved the burden from us.  She is truly a breath of fresh air.  She never gets frustrated with him and is always patient and kind.  She has provided organizational "assignments" that have helped greatly.  She apparently has a knack for motivating him to come up with his own ideas.  She's always willing to communicate with the teachers (and be persistent about it).   My child started off with an F in his history class and ended up with a B, so that tells you all you need to know:)
