  • “Megan Reynolds is an outstanding teacher. My daughter has been taking classes with her for the last 3 years and continually talks about how much she enjoys the classes. Megan is always available to discuss any issues that may arise and does a wonderful job in holding space for the children to express their ideas and opinions. Megan really allows them to explore all avenues of literature in an age appropriate way.” -A.B. (Fairfax, VA)
  • “My son described Ms. Reynolds as his favorite teacher ever. He encouraged his older loved her class too. From my perspective Ms. Reynolds is a challenging and supportive teacher who expects a lot from her students and who makes the process of learning engaging and fun. She is also great at giving feedback about what has been worked on in class and answering any questions.” -H.C. (Brambleton, VA)
  • “Megan Reynolds is fabulous! The Word Masters class really went a long way to improving my girls’ vocabulary and their ability to establish relationships between words. I had two girls in this class, at differing levels of their ability to “catch on” and Megan was wonderful in encouraging each of my girls at their own level and supporting each of them. Honestly, I would not hesitate to sign up for any class Megan offers.” -J.H. (Oakton, VA)
  • “My son really enjoyed having Megan as an instructor. I know she must be encouraging because she got my dyslexic, reluctant reader to read one and sometimes 2 books a session. He loved the book selections and she chose the first one in a series and then moved to another series and he ended up with many series to continue later when he had free time. I would recommend her to others!” -A.K. (Bristow, VA)
  • “My son really likes Megan Reynolds. He has taken multiple classes with her. She connects well with him and she keeps the kids pointed together towards learning while enjoying the class.” -M.K. (Oakton, VA)
