“I went to Mrs. W-B in 11th needing help with my writing skills. She made it very easy for me to become a better writer. Her writing methods and strategies make me capable of comprehending how to confidently structure an essay and develop my analytical expression. Altogether she has helped me grow as a writer while also strengthening other elements of my junior and senior high school English curriculum.

“I would recommend Mrs. W-B to anyone who feels overwhelmed and/or uncomfortable in English; she can really help you understand writing and analysis of the texts.”

Drew, Radnor, Class of 2018

“I came to Mrs. W-B for tutoring because I heard very good recommendations from friends about her, and she met those expectations! I needed help with my writing and how to organize a paper. Mrs. W-B greatly improved my writing by listening to what I had to say, writing down my thoughts, and offering great organizational tools. Also, Mrs. W-B goes out of her way to help me with what I need, from learning material assigned in class to helping me break down a text when I need to read it more deeply.”

@pinehillevents is Main Street!

Pine Hill Events is an event planning firm for corporate/business, non-profit/fundraising and private/social events. We provide as much or as little help as our clients need. We help manage, organize, plan, and execute events with a personal touch and great attention to detail. Every event is individual and customized and we only charge for our time.

The pandemic made group gatherings downright dangerous and that's difficult for an event planner whose job and JOY is bringing people together. Every event we had on schedule from March through the summer was either canceled or postponed. For the clients who want to postpone their larger events to a future date, we are helping them contact their existing vendors, find new vendors if needed, and communicate new plans with guests. And as other events are being changed to virtual, physically-distanced, and/or smaller in person "micro" events, we are helping people celebrate and gather in as safe a way as possible. We are here to help take some of the stress away during this unusual time!

We've learned about virtual events, physically-distanced events, and smaller in person "micro" events. We've participated in many industry webinars and Zoom calls to learn more about plans for when we get back to gathering in person. Things to consider are food service, event-flow/space planning, rentals, and even dance floors! We've talked with our local event industry partners to offer support and ideas. And we've kept in touch with all of our clients to check in and help them either change their upcoming event or plan for their later events.
