With children of all ages temporarily home from school, Abby had the wonderful opportunity to be featured on a Western Mass News with some helpful tips to survive home schooling.

Abby had the wonderful opportunity to be featured on a CT Live segment. Learning regression is most apparent over the summer months when the majority of school age children do not continue education and practice learned concepts. But, lack of practice and review can affect any skill at any time.

What Parents Are Saying

Abby is a wonderful tutor! My three girls have become so much more confident in school since working with her. My oldest has gone from failing math to an A.

Abby has been a great help to us. My son enjoys working with her and I feel a great sense of relief knowing that he (and I!) can benefit from her perspective and expertise.

Dear Friends, I want to share our family’s experience with Abby Forcier, our tutor. She is magnificent, and intuitively understands our two children’s Special Needs (ADHD, Asperger’s, and Mood Disorder among them). She brings energy and focus to our sessions…so much so, that we have added many more to continue the positive momentum. Our children are seeing the results in their grades AND confidence. Thank you, Abby!

Abby is a life saver! Our oldest entered kindergarten in 2020 during the beginning of the pandemic and was doing only doing remote learning as a result. He’s a really bright kid but as with many other children his literacy really suffered and was behind his grade level. Abby really took charge of our son’s learning and not only brought him up to the reading level he needed to be at but made it so fun for him all he wants to do is read now. Thank you Abby!!

Why I love this tutoring program this simple fact: my son, who is in six grade now, started working with Abby 3 1/2 years ago. We had him in a public school with an IEP in place and we learned that wasn’t the best fit for him. Working with Abby on a one-on-one basis we learned the best techniques to help get my son on the level he needs to be for six grade. Doing so, my son is now in six grade and got his first report card. He was a straight “B” and “A” student. He’s never done that. He’s now on first honors and we are so proud of him and we thank Abby for all of this. We appreciate her so much, she’s become part of our family.

Abby has been working with our oldest for several years now, starting in middle school and progressing up into high school. She helped him overcome math anxiety and develop a solid understanding of the work. She’s been organized, professional, friendly, and a great partner for our family in supporting our children’s education. Would recommend.

Our family has worked with Abby for several years and our experience has been wonderful. When I have felt stuck homeschooling two kids, Abby has helped us move through difficult areas. Abby was able to transition to remote learning seamlessly and we were able to continue working with her throughout Covid which has been really helpful. Both of my kids have enjoyed working with Abby. She is organized, patient, funny and very skilled at what she does! I have recommended Abby to many friends who have also loved working with her. Thank you Abby!

Excellent! Abby is warm, fun, engaging, and knowledgeable. My shy kid was quick to warm-up and he learned so much. Abby is skilled in instruction and in relationship-building (that aids in learning.)

Abby has provided services for our son and has done an amazing job! We highly recommended her. Our son really enjoys his time with her and improvements have been noted by both our family and teachers. She is great with communication and provides excellent supplemental materials for our son to work with at home. She also makes herself available to explain progress, explain work at home projects and more.

What would we do without Realized Learning ? Abby is such an incredible skillful, intuitive and gifted teacher. We couldn’t be more grateful to have found her for our 14 year old .

Luisa Reichenheim, Amherst, MA

My son loved his tutoring with “Miss Abby”! It was the highlight of his week! I appreciated how caring and responsive she was to his quirks (he has mild autism) and she had excellent ideas to help him with his learning struggles. She was also very responsive to my input and ideas, making use of testing tools I provided, it was a very effective team effort!

Christina Cordero, Chicopee, MA

Abby does an amazing job at making her students feel in command of their studies.

Mark Arsenault, Northampton, MA

It’s been great to work with Abby over the last year. My 8 year old son has always struggled with reading and things only got worse when he transitioned to remote learning due to COVID. Abby has been very accommodating to his learning/behavioral needs by incorporating body movements, games (w/ prizes!) and more recently, Hi-Lo books to help keep him motivated. After seeing the improvements in his reading ability, I decided to sign up his little brother as well. They love to show me the prizes they’ve won or stories they’ve written after each session.

Christine Bourbeau

I highly recommend Abby’s classes! It was a constant battle getting my 5th grader to write. Now with Abby’s help he’s found his voice and he LOVES writing. It’s his favorite subject! Thank you Abby!!!!

Marie Lauderdale, Belchertown, MA

Abby is such a fantastic tutor, she has developed a wonderful rapport with my daughter and has taken a skillful approach to helping her with her literacy challenges. It’s impressive to see the improvements and knowing that my daughter enjoys her sessions is icing on the cake. All kids should be so lucky to have someone like her helping them!
