"With the expert instruction and gentle guidance of Ms. Robertson, my daughter Skyeler "discovered" that she could read. Her skill and confidence in her ability has sky rocketed. It's like listening to a different child read! I credit my daughter's improvement to her being taught by Sharen."

“I was anxious my son Shane wasn’t ready for kindergarten. I enrolled him at the Story Train and within one month he was reading letters as if he’d known them for years. He now knows that letters make up words and words make up sentences. This gives him the academic advantage he needs.”

"I brought Adam to The Story Train because he was struggling to keep up in school. After only three months his skills improved a whole grade level! The private, one-on-one instruction with Ms. Robertson has been extremely effective for Adam."

"Nathan's teacher had voiced some concerns regarding his phonics and writing skills and suggested I take him to see Sharen at The Story Train. Within several months time I noticed a dramatic improvement in my son's literacy skills (parent review). In fact, Nathan's teacher called me specifically to comment on this as well. This is the best choice I could have made for my son (parent testimonial). I know my son's success can be directly attributed to this educational service and Sharen's instruction and effort."
"I brought my son, Andy, to The Story Train when he was in the 5th grade. Sharen evaluated him and determined he had a 2nd grade reading comprehension level! Needless to say, I was upset and worried. Furthermore, I was unsure of exactly what to do. Sharen created a plan of instruction that targeted Andy's comprehension and reassured me that she could help him. She monitored his progress periodically and was at grade level with the first year of sessions with Sharen! We value the services that Sharen provided and consider her to be a highly qualified, educational professional and an expert in her field."
"I brought my daughter, Rachel, to The Story Train when she was in the 8th grade. At that time, I was a very frustrated parent. My daughter has severe dyslexia and was unable to complete any of her homework. Both she and I were at our wits end. Then I learned of The Story Train Literacy Center. I'll admit that meeting Sharen has been one of the most important aspects of my daughter's academic success. Ms. Robertson evaluated Rachel and determined her academic strengths and weaknesses. My daughter was instructed by Sharen until she graduated from Coyle Cassidy High School. Rachel attends Colby Sawyer College in New Hampshire and she continues to meet with Sharen on an as-needed basis (for papers, etc.). I also sent my son, Robert, to be evaluated and instructed by Sharen. Sharen Robertson's instructional services continue to be my family's most trusted educational resource. Her professionalism and expertise regarding the educational needs of my children has made academic success a reality for both Rachel and Robert, and a source of pride for my husband and me. We are truly thankful that she has been there for us."
