The Success Wall
The Success Wall is where many of LiquidFractal's most notable tuition and client project achievements are posted for all to see. Assessments and project outcomes are recorded here, as well as some of the very kind words of appreciation I've received over the years from grateful students, parents, and clients (reproduced here as-is, with minor typos uncorrected).
While I'm proud to have assisted each one of these clients to such excellent outcomes, they really deserve all the credit for being outstanding learners, as well as being nothing short of wonderful to work with. At the end of the day the work, the finished product, and the rewards are theirs!
This is not a complete list as some students/clients have requested their details not be published here. LiquidFractal respects their privacy.

I received these kind words from the father of one of my students this year:Quote
Abirami has been interested in and passionate about reading from a very young age, and she had chosen to do English literature with a great deal of enthusiasm. It was only with the tutoring sessions she had with you that we so traces of the old interest resurfacing. Both R. and I want to specially thank you for that too, above everything else. It was a pleasure knowing you - I'm sure Abirami would love to come and meet you some time.
Alexei scored second in his English class across the entire year! Way to go, Alexei! Alexei's mother later wrote this to me:Quote
I would just like to say how thankful I am for your involvement in supporting Alexei over the past two years of his schooling. I feel that he has made tremendous progress in English and has completed all the requirements for the subject to the best of his capacity and with minimal stress. This is hugely appreciated!
