"Madeline Sweat was a pleasure to have in my sixth grade class.  As a sixth grade student she exemplified Character Counts traits of good citizenship, making her a positive role model for her peers.  Likewise, she worked once a month peer-tutoring third grade buddies in writing, math and social skill activities.  In the classroom, Madeline grasped concepts quickly and could model the "how to" in easy-to-follow terms for peers.  Madeline is a self-motivated life-long learner with a well-rounded variety of talents."
 -Mrs. Dircks, 6th grade Teacher at Riverdale Heights

"Madeline Sweat is a student in my 2010-2011 8th grade language arts class at Pleasant Valley Junior High School. I highly recommend her as a tutor. She is a respectful, responsible student. Madeline is punctual and does not waste time getting on task in the classroom. She comes to class prepared and is willing to do research outside of class. Assignments and projects are completed swiftly and accurately.

"Madeline is an avid reader. She enjoys sharing her love of reading with others. Madeline likes to challenge herself by reading numerous genres at different levels. Her Battle of the Books team made it to State and will compete in Indianola, Iowa. Madeline read all 30 books on the Battle list in order to ensure her team has all information covered.

"Madeline would be a great choice for a tutor. She works well with others and has a strong knowledge base. She is a hard-worker and is always prepared."
