• Colleen has a special talent for tutoring. She truly understands her students and her empathy translates into an effective teaching style that not only instructs but motivates the students. My daughter has a strong inclination towards math and sciences and was less confident in English, especially composition. Learning from Colleen significantly improved her writing skills. I can honestly say without Colleen’s assistance, she would not be the confident writer that she is now. Colleen taught her to verbalize her ideas in a manner that is concise and straightforward, yet still engaging to the audience. Colleen’s mentoring helped my daughter become a confident writer, and as a bonus, she now gets A’s in her English and Language Arts.

  • Dear Colleen,
    I don’t even know where to begin….
    Thank you for bringing me my baby back! It was like a miracle today…
    These are only some of her words: “Mom, I haven’t felt so stress-free in years! Mrs. Pine is so wonderful. I feel rejuvenated. I feel like I can finally be who I am. I am proud of myself.”   She cannot stop talking about the session. For the first time in many years, she felt like she wasn’t being judged. I haven’t heard her talk so much in over a year.  She is looking forward to her next session!  I also wanted to let you know that she got the internship! I think the interview went extra well since she was in such a good mood.  Again, thank you so much, Colleen! I really appreciate it!

  • Colleen Epple Pine is one of the most caring, genuine, professional tutors I have ever met and has a BIG heart. She is a quick read of needs and resourceful in finding resolutions to even the most challenging of academic roadblocks. She teaches confidence building tools and tips that result in success for the student. She finds a way of reaching the student by reaching out in love with probing questions to dig deep to the root of the problem. She really cares and it shows in everything she says and does.
