“ Pauline worked really well with my son and managed to keep him engaged during his tutoring sessions. We noticed huge improvements in his handwriting within his first couple of sessions with Pauline, the difference before and after the “Matman” exercise was particularly impressive! He no longer has any problems with reversing his letters or his numbers and the skills he has learnt have prepared him well for starting Kindergarten.” Rachel. G (son, age 5)
"I am so happy with how quickly I saw progress. After only the first session I saw improvement in my child's handwriting! Pauline was able to fix things that we had been working on for a long time! She is an amazing teacher my daughter loves her and enjoy going to her lessons. Pauline is very professional and has a lot of patience, she is great with kids." Madeline. K. (daughter, age 9)
"The improvement we've seen in our son's handwriting since working with Pauline is amazing. Pauline is such an engaging teacher. The techniques she uses to teach letter formation have been so helpful to my son. Whenever he needs help with a letter, I just use one of her cues and he knows what to do. I'm so glad we invested time in this before starting Kindergarten as I feel it has definitely given him an advantage in the classroom." Lisa. G. (Son, age 5)
"Pauline helped Alasdair improve his handwriting, even in just a few lessons. He has gone from spider scribble to correct, neat writing. He also loves his lessons. I've never had a complaint about going and he looks forward to it." Nikki. M. (Son, age 9)
"I am so pleased that I got in touch with Pauline. my daughter, who had just started first grade, was finding writing difficult and frustrating, and I wasn't sure how to help her. After the first session Pauline identified the main areas that my daughter was struggling with. Not only did Pauline help me understand the problems, but she also helped my daughter see how just with some small changes, writing could be so much easier. And most importantly, my daughter loved going to her handwriting class. She told me that Pauline was lots of fun!" Helen. R. (Daughter, age 6)
"Our middle school student's handwriting was unreadable. In a short 8 weeks, Pauline changed his handwriting dramatically. Not only could you read his work, but he learned basic techniques that will help him improve his writing for a lifetime. I am so impressed that not only did she help him improve his handwriting, but also helped with grammar and punctuation, his sizing of letters and spacing. I love the course and no matter the age you can change. I truly appreciate Pauline's efforts and see how beneficial at any age." Brandi. H. (son age 12)
"THANK YOU! I've been meaning to tell you that I can already see a marked improvement in both kids' handwriting! It's truly amazing." Alisa. P. (sons ages 13, 8)
Cursive is no longer taught in the public schools as it was when I was a kid. I am so glad I found Maple Tree Learning. My daughters (10 and 7) have enjoyed the course very much and my seven year old daughter's handwriting grade has improved! Thank you, Ms. Pauline for teaching the "dying" art of handwriting! Shea P. (daughters ages 10, 7)
My son needed a little help. He likes to write fast and was being lazy with letters. I knew Pauline would be the one to help him learn some rules and clean up his messy words. He was excited to go every week and in just a few sessions changed his technique. Thank you Pauline for working diligently with Luke. I loved this letter I received from him in the mail too ❤
Thanks Maple Tree!!!!
Ps. You are amazing! 😁
Dana G (son, age 8)
My daughter absolutely loves the cursive class and looks forward to it every week. Her handwriting has improved and she loves writing in cursive. Thank you, Maple Tree! Thuy T (daughter age 7)
Pauline is wonderful, my daughter really looked forward to her handwriting sessions. We saw a big improvement in her handwriting and most importantly for us she no longer complained about having to write because she found it much easier. Thank you Pauline! Helen R. (daughter, age 7)
Just wanna say that if you’re looking for improvement in handwriting you have to call Pauline Mathiesen at Maple Tree Learning. She and B worked 6 lessons together in 6 weeks and he improved his solid S scores to an E practically overnight. Thanks Pauline it was super easy and Ryan said you’re an amazing teacher. 🙌❤️ Susan B (son, age 9)
My kindergartner went from writing like a serial killer to beautiful print in a couple of months!
She only started handwriting therapy mid-January. She has a May birthday, so she was 5 all this time.
Highly recommend Maple Tree Learning. Owner’s name is Pauline. She is wonderful! Melissa (daughter, age 5)
Thank you so much!!! Xxx had a BLAST in your class and has continued to use her cursive in her classwork and informal writing. Totally life changing!!!
Camille (email about her daughter, age 7)
I love how you’re always coming up with creative and multi sensory ways to engage him! -Jennifer (message about her son, age 9)
Pauline Mathiesen made a huge difference in my son's academic success in a short period of time. Mason's grip has changed, I can tell he puts more effort in his writing at school and home, and his handwriting grade improved at school. Most importantly, he had fun learning cursive and improving his handwriting. On Thursday mornings he jumped out of bed quickly and would say, "Today is going to be awesome. I have cursive and flag football!" For my sporty guy to be just as excited about learning handwriting as he was to play football is the true testimony to Pauline and Maple Tree Learning! Thank you!
You are the best, Cara (son age 8)
He loves coming to you. I told him that one day he wouldn't need support with writing. He said I never want to stop going to Ms. Pauline - Jada (message about her son, 7 years old)
Thank you so much for the updates, Pauline. We are so impressed with how far he has come in such a short period of time under your guidance. It's nothing short of amazing!
-Annie (message about her 3rd grade son)
Pauline has been working with my 6-year old for several months now. His improvements so dramatic, and what’s even more impressive is his confidence. It’s skyrocketed. He started off with no ability to form letters, or numbers, and now he has these tips and tricks and is a solid writer. I’ll often hear him sing-song the tricks she gives him at random times. On a business front, I’m really impressed with Pauline. She’s communicative (even sends me recaps via email with photos after the sessions), she is prompt, and organized. We sent my older kiddo to her too for a couple weeks during the break, and she helped bridged the gap between some latent skills. We plan to double down at the end of the summer to get the kids ready for 1st and 2nd. Highly recommend Pauline.
-Erika (son age 6)
Ms. Pauline helped my third grade son tremendously. In just two months his spacing, formation and grip have really improved. She made handwriting fun with game-like practice activities and motivated him to write by incorporating high interest materials such as blank comic book pages. I appreciated her thorough communication, from the initial evaluation to passing along tips and cues I could use at home. Thank you, Ms. Pauline!
-Katie (9 year old son)
It’s amazing the transformation.
I also love the assignments you give her. I’ve kept more of these assignments in our memory box than most of her school assignments. Even beyond the handwriting itself, they are meaningful and important. Thank you.
