    "Christina Lazar and the teachers at The Lazar Center are top notch. I've tried Kumon and every other type of tutoring for my kids and they just don't compare. Christina has a true interest in my kids and understands their individual dynamic at their school and even with in our family. I love how she just plain gets us and from reading all the other reviews it looks as though she does the same for them as well."
