Donna has been such a wonderful breath of fresh air. My daughter hated going to school and would even get physically ill before leaving for school in the mornings and she would miss school. We hired Donna before the school year started and my daughter has a whole new attitude about school. She wakes up when I do in the mornings and is ready over an hour before school starts. She is even requesting to take classes online to catch up with her classmates. She has gone from 4 Fs to straight As so far this year. Almost 100% in all classes. I am so grateful for the help and for Donna helping to get her excited about school and learning.

The first day I tried to meet Edmondo he was a no show. I waited for 45 minutes and left. The next day he said he could not find the campus library. The next day I met with him he was 15 minutes late. I showed him homework I had due and needed help with but he could wanted to do his own examples. When I did not understand something he got frustrated and said, what doesn't make sense in your brain? It was my first tutoring experience and it was not a good one. I have never had a problem academically but chemistry is proving to be quite a challenge for me. I left feeling more confused then when I arrived.
