1st Grade Success!

No comments

“I like school and I like tutoring! I’m learning songs and all my ABC’s. I learned how to count. I use my fingers sometimes and it’s so easy. Ms. Rose (teacher) and Ms. Hope (tutor) are teaching me. I like them. I learned how to make animals. I made a magic penguin and an airplane. Ms. Rose taught me how to write my name. I have friends that I like to play with. I like to make a really good taco out of play-doh. I like to sing the “Days of the Week” song and the “Months of the Year” song with Ms. Rose and my friends. -V. (1st grade student)

English as a Second Language Tutoring Success!

No comments

“Yesterday I went to (a) restaurant and I saw in the menu the word ‘dip.’ I say to my husband, ‘Wow, I know this word. Let’s order this!’”

“I feel that I speak English much better. Before I felt worried when I spoke to some people, but now I don’t worry.” –T.Z. (adult ESL student)

Math made easy! We help adults, too.

No comments

“I came in to clear up some of my confusions on math. As a senior citizen who loves to study, I knew this area was popping up enough to give me quite a bit of trouble. So we took care of the questions and mysteries and it’s now a fun and interesting subject to me.”

“I liked the approach to the subject I needed help with. I learned the history, various origins, purposes and failures and stupidities of math! Greatly raised my confront, affinity and understanding of all types of math. It was great!” -S.S. (adult student)

Middle School Student Success!

No comments

“D. has an A – 100% – in math now! I was surprised that he did this on his own with the help of Ms. Sioux (CLC tutor). Ms. Sioux helped a lot and showed him how to do the math problems correctly. He is really enjoying the online distance tutoring, too. We want to continue tutoring even when we go on vacation to California!” -K.N. (parent of a Pro Tutoring student)

Grades improved and self-confidence went up – Success Story!

No comments

“I, D.R., the mother of T., am very pleased to write this success story. T. started math tutoring at Community Learning Center around the end of the fall quarter in 7th grade. She is very lucky to have Ms. Sioux as her math tutor. T. was getting average grades when she started. After she started her tutoring with Ms. Sioux, not only her grades improved but her self-confidence went up. She is now more and more interested in learning math and English. Now, she is in 8th grade and she is taking 9th grade Algebra and 9th grade English.”

“I am very happy and I highly recommend Community Learning Center tutoring. I am very thankful to the entire staff and heartily appreciate all the support and assistance from Ms. Sioux.” –D.R. (mother of 8th grade student)

Math Tutoring a Success!

No comments

“I’ve used the Community Learning Center’s tutoring program for my daughter who had been struggling with certain subjects in school. She was able to get personalized attention in math and science where she was having the hardest time. The tutor (Debbie) is very patient and really made sure my daughter got the concepts of what she was studying and could use the information. My daughter’s grades went from D’s and C’s to A’s and B’s. She was much happier and looked forward to her tutoring each week. CLC was also flexible and allowed me to use a Saturday morning slot for tutoring since I couldn’t fit it into my schedule during the week.”

“This is a really great place whose focus is on improving education so kids really understand and can apply what they’ve learned, which I often find is sorely lacking in regular schooling.” –G.L. (mother of 5th grade student)

Adult Student Wins Big Learning the Origin of Math Terminology!

No comments

“After years of being thrown terms such as percentage and decimal, someone (CLC tutor Sioux) finally broke down their meanings and origins to me. Learning that ‘dec’ was based on every tenth, and ‘cent’ was based on every hundredth as their Latin meaning, was very interesting.

Also, learning all the different ways to write a fraction just to find out they’d all come to the same conclusion makes me wonder why we can’t decide to just use one of the ways to write them. Either way, very interesting and I do look forward to finding more meanings behind all these words and numbers.”

– K.A. (adult student)

“E. had an 83% in pre-algebra before we started tutoring with Sioux. That doesn’t sound too bad, right? But that was only because her homework was so good. She was flunking every test! After just a few weeks of tutoring, her grade is up to a 96% and her last two tests were A’s. She has so much more confidence about her math abilities. I can’t thank you enough! H.S. (parent of a 7th grader)
