What Parents Are Saying About Lodestone Academy
Jennifer is such a wonderful person and she has created a place where children can grow in a comforting environment. Would definitely recommend to others looking for afterschool tutoring!
I can't say enough good things about Lodestone Academy. My daughter was not eager to get a tutor. Her anxiety stemmed from a negative experience she had with a school teacher. Jennifer, the academy’s director, was very thorough in explaining the assessment process, took the time to understand my daughter’s personality and considered her concerns, and highly recommended Joseph to work with my daughter. Joseph is amazing!
I would highly recommend this academy to everyone I know seeking an educational and fun after school center or camp. The owner is a true gem of a person.
