Testimonials from Students
What made you seek out tutoring?
I was going into the period of time where I would be practicing and taking the ACT. After taking the practice ACT and having a significantly lower score than expected, we thought we would seek out help. I never would have expected to go from a 22 to a 30 after tutoring, but it happened.
What was your experience like with tutoring? (What progress did you make?)
The tutoring experience was great. I was excited every time Tim came to the house. For the first fifteen minutes or so we would talk about my interests and hobbies related to 3d printing and then we would get to work on practicing the ACT. I was excited and motivated about the tutoring because I knew that the saving in college would be huge with scholarships. The progress I made was astronomical and I went from having a score of 22 to a 29 to a 30 after tutoring and hard work.
What are you doing now?
At the moment, I am the recipient of the University of St. Thomas Board of Governor's Scholarship and studying mechanical engineering at the St. Thomas in St. Paul. I am fortunate enough to do research for a materials engineering professor relating to 3D printing.

My Learning Coach is friendly and approachable, and even if something doesn't go as well as it could, she helps me solve the problem and learn from what I wasn't doing right. It helps my parents and I get along better because we are not as frustrated about school work."
