Tori is down to earth, calm, funny, and friendly - all attributes that make her successful with working with children. She is also flexible, patient, accessible, and has a great sense of humor - all of which enhance her skills working with kids as well as contribute to her being a great colleague. When I see Tori enter my classroom, the tension in my shoulders releases. Tori is a great colleague. She will be an asset to Capital Region Tutors. J.G.
