Private Tutoring Reviews

Testimonials

John and I would like to thank you for an amazing job you performed with the tutoring of Tori. You were organized, thorough, communicative, fun, professional, committed, persistent, loyal, and loving with Tori, us and the teachers. We can’t thank you enough! Tori considers you a SISTER and MENTOR; and she is a tough cookie to crack when it comes to meeting new people and anything school-related. It is a big testament to your character and talent for this to have gone as well as it did. We are so grateful!

Thanks for making a "leap of faith" experience better than we all could have imagined!

Gratefully,
John and Gaye C.

Thanks for making the remote learning experience such a positive one. I am all caught up with the grading and [student] currently has an A. Maybe I should hire Gina for a few of my other students. A million thanks!

I have to share something with you. I have commented to my son that he has a couple of weird kids. They actually look forward to their tutoring sessions! Meghann gets a huge smile on her face and says, "Oh good, my tutor is here." And Kenzie haunts us to make sure she isn't late getting home for her tutoring sessions with you. So Gina, take a huge bow, you deserve it!

Gina is the best tutor out there!  She really made the boring task of homework enjoyable and I had never done so well in school!  While tutoring with Gina, I significantly increased my grade point average, which convinced my parents to let me go to more horse shows and really helped me get into a respectable college.

I don't know how I would have survived my last year as a junior rider without the help of Gina.  She understood that I needed to spend a lot of time at the barn and there was a lot of pressure on me to win.  I relied on her to manage my academic time.  It was great to have her take the worry out of school while I was trying to lay the groundwork for the career that I now have as a professional rider.

My girls love working with Gina Marie!  We have grown to love her like part of the family.  She knows how to get the schoolwork completed, while keeping both her students and their schools happy. The girls attend a prestigious school with very high standards and any slack in academic performance will not be tolerated.  I don't know how we could come to Florida for the winter without her.

Gina Marie is not just a tutor, I consider her a role model for her students.  The kids seem to want to work for her, to do well in school.  She instills a work ethic in them by knowing when to be tough, and when to be their friend- but she is always professional.

Gina makes my life so much easier.  Attending college and working as a young professional with my own business can seem impossible at times.  It is comforting to know that Gina is just a phone call away and she can help edit a paper or explain a difficult chapter.  Without her help, I wouldn't be able to compete in Europe and stay on top of my college studies.

Gina Marie provided an invaluable service. Her professionalism and constant communication allowed her client to keep up with the expectations of my curriculum. My student's transition back into the classroom was seamless.

As a past student of Gina Marie Mondel's, I can assure you that she is an outstanding tutor and more importantly a mentor. Looking back at my junior show years, I often question how I could have managed it all without her help and guidance. Going to school in California while competing on the East Coast made it very difficult to keep up without her help. Gina's professionalism, organization, communication skills and hard work made it possible to compete at a national level and get into some of the top colleges in the country. One thing that sets Gina apart from her competitors is that understands the horse show world. As a regular contender in past amateur divisions, she understands the rigorous training schedules and amount of time and energy that goes into the sport. Gina does everything in her power to provide her clients with flexibility in order to ensure that her juniors are able to compete and complete their school work at high standards. Gina is a wonderful person that will give your child the confidence and ability to accomplish their dreams, whether that is in the horse world, academia or even better both! Gina could not come more highly recommended.

Gina,
Making the decision that my daughter would stay in Wellington and compete at the Winter Equestrian Festival for the 2011 season was difficult. I was anxious not knowing how she would be able to manage and successfully complete all of her assignments. You were invaluable in that process. Your dedication and enthusiasm really motivated my daughter to work to the best of her ability. You encouraged her independence and guided her in doing research at the library, writing her first research paper, composing essays and completing all of her assignments on time. At the end of the season, she returned to school and easily rejoined her classes. Not only did all of her quarter grades improve, she was confident and prepared to complete the rest of the school year. I have no regrets and am so grateful to you for your amazing talent and support that guaranteed my daughter's success.

I can't say enough good things about Gina.  My daughter adores her and actually enjoys doing her schoolwork when working with Gina. It is no wonder that my child excels in her studies while working with her and, every year, my child has returned to school in better academic standing then when she first arrived in Wellington, Florida. Gina does an amazing job and we are so lucky to benefit from her services as a private tutor.
Shaw P. (parent and equestrian, MD)


Thank you so much for helping me with my college essays. Ahh... I am so happy with how they turned out and I really really love the "personal choice" essay. It is for my top school so it kind of has to be amazing...and it is! Thank you sooo much for your help! I feel like both of these essays really show my personality and I'm so confident with them! Thanks again.
Ariana S. (student, NJ)


Gina Marie, thanks so much for keeping Brinkley totally caught up in her work. She ended the 3rd quarter with a 95 average, and that is amazing, especially since she was not in class to hear all of the class discussions. Hats off to you!!!
Vicki K. (teacher, TN)


Thanks for another wonderful three months of tutoring! I had such a great time and felt very confident when I came back from Florida. I have been ahead in math, spanish, and right on track with all the other subjects. I am happy to be home, however I do miss Florida! You are always a great friend. I always come back from Florida feeling, like I said, confident and I especially feel like I have improved in all of my classes! Thank you so much! I can't wait for next year!

P.S. I just got my grades and it's all A's! And, I got 100% on my last math test at home.

Alden P. (student, MD).


Gina,
You were definitely the right choice as a tutor for my daughter! She has done exceptionally well since returning from Florida. Her grades improved substantially and she has had very high marks! Just thought I would send you a note telling you of her remarkable improvement. Thanks for your time and effort!

Leah M. (parent, AZ)


My daughter on- line schools through a gifted program at Laurel Springs Academy. When I sent her down to Wellington for the season, I thought she would stay caught up. Due to internet access problems and the lure of so many better things to do, she fell very far behind. I found Gina on the internet and a few other companies. Thank God it was Gina who called back first. Not only did she get Ariel caught up, but became a confidant to her as well. Ariel was alone in Florida for that last month in a half. Gina continues to offer friendship and guidance even though Ariel is back home now. I can't recommend Gina enough!
Dr. Randee L. (parent, KS)


When my mom made arrangements for me to work with a tutor, I cringed. The idea of working with a pushy tutor who looked over my shoulder the entire time was not appealing. However, after working with Gina Marie, I became so grateful for her help and guidance. She is totally cool, and definitely gets the horse side of me! When working with her, I couldn't believe how much work was completed and didn't even seem like work- maybe because she seems more like a friend than a tutor (unless I showed up late!). Gina Marie helped me with my school work and even helped with my laundry a few times! No doubt, she is the best tutor out there!

I don't know how I would have survived the combination of horse shows and school during my junior years of riding without Gina Marie. She taught me how to study efficiently, how to write papers, and how to be a great student in general. My parents were always strict about my grades and Gina empowered me be to be a better student and achieve all "A"s, while still regularly attending shows. She understood the pressure from my parents, as well as my trainers, and was my "go to" person whenever I left overwhelmed. She continues to mentor me in my college years and always makes herself available to edit an important paper for me. Now that I am an adult, I am even more appreciative of Gina's role in my education, as the skills she taught me have allowed me to maintain a 3.6 GPA and continue my education beyond UGA.
