Introductory lesson

My son feels very good after his first lesson. I am very hopeful that he will overcome his weaknesses in Reading and Writing.

Understands teen minds!

Courtney was thorough and patient with my 15 yr old and realized the problems, explaining geometry in plain language she got!! She also knows what concepts will be needed through the year and focuses on them.
