“Since I started tutoring I have worked with the same little girl every Wednesday. Her mom and dad both work full time and they have four kids, so they have an extremely busy day-to-day life. Her mom has expressed how big of a help it is to have her daughter's math homework completed and to have someone who can take time and practice her spelling words with her.”

-Ali Thompson, junior
