Tammy and her staff are all great. If you need any help with your child’s educational needs she is the person to call.
If you have any concerns for you child's educational needs, don't hesitate to reach out to Dr. Tammy Walker at Educational Solutions! She is hands down THE BEST!! She was Elizabeth's 3rd-grade teacher and in 2020 left teaching in the classroom and started Educational Solutions with Dr. Tammy Walker (also her FB page name) to follow God's calling to help children with education needs.
Here's our story: Juliana started falling behind towards the end of first semester 2nd grade in the Nov 2020 timeframe. The foundation of phonics never fully set in with her from Kindergarten and 1st grade, but we didn't realize the extent of it until Nov 2020 because her grades were fine until then. But then second grade starting introducing new concepts and her grades started plummeting. Ricky and I as parents tried to help, but with us not being trained educators, we quickly realized we were not doing her justice that she needed on her level. Knowing Ms. Walker from being Liz's teacher, we asked her to come in to evaluate and help. The week of Christmas, Ms. Walker evaluated Jules at a beginning 1st grade reading level and we started tutoring for a total of 1.5 hrs a week. First we started with three 30 min sessions and recently switched to two 45 min sessions weekly. Over 2.5 month time, Jules has progressed to where she is suppose to be at mid-year 2nd grade. Ms. Walker also tutors in other subjects which she touches on language and math with Jules as well. I attend almost every tutoring session so I can see "how" Ms. Walker is teaching her in interactive ways and then we continue that week's curriculum and method on non-tutoring days. Also through this process with Ms. Walker, we have nailed down learning methods that best help Jules in understanding and retaining the material. Don't waste any time if you have concerns for your child. Report cards are not always the true answer to your child's understanding of material. Even with the failing test grades, the other classroom work grades counteracted the test grades, therefore she didn't fail on report card although she was truly far behind and over time, this absolutely would have caught up to failing report card grades. If you have any concerns, don't delay reaching out for help early and hands down recommend contacting Dr. Tammy Walker!!
Dr Walker was a lifesaver for us with helping our 6th grader make sense of math with at-home learning. Dr. Walker would essentially have to reteach our daughter the lessons. Dr Walker is kind and patient and went above and beyond for our daughter. We will definitely use her services again when we need help with math.
