My daughter is in Honors Chemistry and doing poorly. She was hesitant about seeing a tutor because she has met with her teacher after school and ended up feeling confused and dumb. After 60 min with Yanina I could see that she did not want the session to end because she was grasping the subject matter. To Yanina's credit my daughter was engaged and excited to learn Chemistry at 7:30 on a Sunday night and ended up having a 90 min session. This is just her first session but I know Yanina knows how to connect with a high schooler!

After the tutoring session I asked Sam if he thought it was helpful, he was just amazed! He was so impressed with Shurie and how genuine she is, how smart she is, and how easy it was to work with her (Sam is overall a very shy person so to be open to tutoring was a major step for him). I am truly hopeful that this is going to be the key to Sam's success in school.
