"First session was great"

Really fun student to work with. Was able to work on Pre Algebra and Reading through one on one personal communication. We set up three software programs along with interaction via the internet. Student realized that this learning experience is when he feels like he wants to do it through the software programs. I look forward to our next one on one learning experience.

It was a great experience working with this student. Only having two (one on one) session with her, we were able to create a program via internet, combined with a software program. Then her parents would mock test her on the subject. She passed the Reading STAAR test and now is going to the next grade level. She deserves all the credit with her hard work and dedication during the time period before the test.
