"I was always challenged in his class, especially when it came to taking tests. Everything else clicked, but I had terrible tests scores. I took a few test preparations classes and my scores have really improved. Thanks for working with me."
Over the past 10 years, i have helped about 1000 students improve their study habits, comprehension, and test-taking skills. As a result, these students have earned better test scores and grades, and grown in self-esteem, confidence and on to graduate college.
