Parent Testimonial

Our son is a Senior at Stayton High School. As this year progressed, we found that [he] was falling behind in his studies. As parents, we would ask him if he had homework and he would always say, "No, I did it at school." When he did have homework and would ask for our help, it would eventually turn out that he would get upset with us and would not want help any longer. We could tell he was stressing out concerning his studies. We as a family decided to look for a tutoring service, but didn't know where to turn. We were very fortunate to find a phone number of a tutoring service. I called and spoke with Nicole, she agreed to see us that night. Once we met her, she spent almost an hour speaking with [my son]. Right away we knew this was the right person to help him with his studies. Our son has been attending Nicole's classes for about a month and a half. We have seen a positive change in him just in the short time he has been receiving help.
