Success Stories

Lindsay L.

PSW & Mom of 5

“Heather was so helpful to me! I was having a hard time figuring out how to best homeschool all my kids and make it work for our family. She provided practical advice and the reassurance I needed. She also tutored one of my sons on his reading, writing, and math and coached me on how to teach him better as well. She was a great help and I highly recommend her.”

Min Y.

Business Owner & Mom of 2

“My daughter loves going to this program! A perfect balance between daycare and school, TT has her keen on learning the alphabet and trying to sound out every word she sees. The hard work put into curating the content as well as teaching it is apparent. My youngest is excited to join her sister when she’s ready, too!”

John M.

Supervising Principal

“I have come to know her as a committed and dedicated teacher…I am routinely impressed with the degree to which she has developed solid lesson planning skills which meet the learning needs of all students.”

Wes W.

Supervising Principal

“Heather exhibited true joy working with the students in her classes. She made a concerted effort to connect with all students in the class. She used her connections with students to build positive relationships, as well as create meaningful learning opportunities for students. The Grade Four class provided challenges on a variety of different levels and Heather understood the principle that “no one cares what you know, until they know you care”. There was no doubt how much Mrs. Harris-Demelo cared about the students in her class. Heather exhibited many qualities of a team player and dedicated teacher.”

Steven B.

“(Heather) demonstrated a good level of comfort in her placement, developing a growing rapport with the students during this time. She consistently demonstrated a professional attitude and actively sought information and feedback from her observations.”

“I highly recommend Tracing Talent! My kids love Heather and her programming! I’m a homeschooling mama but run my own service based business, so it’s been amazing to have Tracing Talent available to help me with the days I need to work with clients.

Heather makes sure the kids stay active, are having fun learning, and are emotionally supported. They always enjoy it and don’t want to leave.”

James E.

Faculty Supervisor

“Heather was a pleasure to watch in the classroom. Her ability to handle a class of primary students was excellent. At the junior level, Heather’s ability was equal. I give Heather my highest recommendations! She appears to possess that seemingly innate sense of teaching and would be a definite asset to the teaching profession. Her dedication is obvious. I am very pleased with her effort and enthusiasm!”
