Landon Funk's Testimonials Success Stories Good Vibes
Working with Landon at Granite has been the smartest decision we've made in ages! She has been an invaluable resource for our daughter this last year of high school. She's provided wise counsel at every turn and been a real source of support and inspiration. We can't recommend her highly enough! We are sure that Landon, Grantly and the whole Granite team put the student first and give them confidence to reach their full potential. We're truly grateful.
The experience we (and more importantly - our daughter) has had with her counselor (Landon Funk) has been nothing short of exemplary!! In every respect - she has benefited greatly from Landon's attentive and insightful counsel ... Highly recommend GE to anyone!!
We have been working with Landon at Granite Education for the past 8 months doing test prep for the ISEE and general academic support as we transition our oldest child into high school. The positive impact that Landon has had on our daughter's progress cannot be overstated. She has been able to teach our daughter, not only ways to academically prepare for the ISEE and high school, but also how to emotionally prepare for both while also teaching her what she should expect for both. I have and will continue to recommend Landon and all of the educators at Granite Education to anyone in need of a tutor.
I have a daughter with learning differences who requires tutoring in both math and language arts. Granite placed my daughter with the perfect tutor who she loves working with and with whom she has had great success for over a year. I highly recommend Granite for ANY tutoring needs.
My daughter has been working with a tutor from Granite for several months and she has learned so much in Algebra, Geometry, grammar and writing. The “mindfulness” pieces of it has helped with her anxiety on test taking and helped build her confidence. We are grateful for Granite and highly recommend them!
