Help for Homeschool Student

No comments

“I homeschool my child and he wanted to do improvement on the subject of math. He started at the Community Learning Center, tutoring on math, and he loves it. I am happy to see he is enjoying math thanks to his tutor, who is applying correct gradients and making this subject fun rather than a task. Thank you.”  –P. (mother of a 2nd grade student)

Adult Student Success!

No comments

“Today is my third day at CLC and the feeling of accomplishment is wonderful! I am a 56-year-old woman who has never understood math until I met Sioux (CLC tutor). In three days, I have caught on to division, my worst fear of all. I will continue to come to see Sioux and continue my learning here. This is just the beginning of my journey!”  –J.K. (adult college-bound student)

Thanksgiving Food Drive a success!

No comments

CLC partnered with The Way to Happiness Center to help migrant workers from Plant City, FL. The migrant families work long hours out in the field picking the fruit and vegetables that many of us enjoy eating. 

We worked with Pastor Brown of Feed Our Children Ministries, a non-profit organization that helps feed disadvantaged families. Pastor Brown is an all-around great guy. Every year he helps countless people in need with food donations and this year he asked for our help. 

CLC students and families generously donated several boxes filled to the brim with non-perishable food items that Pastor Brown picked up on Friday. We couldn’t be more proud of our students for the help they gave for the Thanksgiving holiday!

Student Success – I give my teacher 5 stars!

No comments

When I finished my first math book yesterday on subtraction, addition and some multiplication, I felt very good about myself. I really like multiplication. It’s fun. I have improved my reading by two steps and I’ve improved my vocabulary. I enjoyed making the weather vanes and thermometers in class. I really enjoy recess because I really like to run around! I give my teacher (Ms. Karen) five stars – better than a five-star chef! And I give everyone who works here five stars, too.”

-N. (3rd grade student)
