“Thank you so much for taking our girls this spring.  Honestly, I wish we had spent the entire year with you.  My daughter felt so comfortable with y’all, and really enjoyed the classes.  Daniel, you changed her mind (a bit!) about math - she loved feeling a sense of accomplishment with the advanced concepts you brought to class!” —mom of an 8th grader
