My name is Kayla and I go to public schools and I was barely passing Chemistry with a D and I needed to increase my grade fast. I found Judith W. and she was able to help me with everything I needed. She taught differently then my teacher did which helped me to understand in an easier way and she gave different examples till I understood the criteria. I used to fail almost every chapter test and with her I started making Bs on test and quizzes. When my semester grade came out I went from a D to a high B! I also passed the SOL.
