"Just wanted to say thanks and let you know how much you are helping my daughter: it's so great to have her coming home excited, happy, and confident in herself and her abilities. It's obviously helping with math and reading, and her confidence has carried over to her history class. She is thrilled that she has 100% in all assignments and quizzes so far!"
