Andy and Melissa

When Andy started the summer program, he would hide in the bathroom, and tell his tutor Cathy that it wasn’t any use to teach him because he would never get it. Last year’s virtual school was very hard for Andy, and he said he disliked school.

After 12 sessions, Andy is up three reading grade levels, and now he’s the one helping other children in school with their homework. “I believe in the program,” said his mom Melissa Smith. “I know not everyone will see these results, but I’m a big believer.”
