Additional relevant information:

We Educate! Motivate! Celebrate! Our program is housed mainly in the local schools. We are happy to report that there are significant Reading and Math gains in every school district we serve. We celebrate learning at the end of the program by inviting parents, tutors, and students to share testimonials at a completion ceremony. At this ceremony, we recognize each child’s work ethic and regular attendance. In our effort to develop the whole child, we hold them responsible for working with a positive attitude and for attending all tutoring ssessions. Our professionally trained tutors, most of whom are certified NY teachers, are trained to ensure that our students are always supervised and safe.
