Taylor, 15 years old - 10th Grade
Taylor’s mother volunteered her opinion about the LP Learning Center and how it helped her son.
“So Taylor’s getting to the place in school where teachers give research papers fairly often, and he would spend hours reading and writing. And it would worry me because he looked so worn down. I thought I don’t think this is right. He shouldn’t be this exhausted from his studying. It got worse when he started getting Cs and Ds on papers. The red writing on it constantly criticized his grammar and the way he wrote. We were fortunate to call the [LP] Learning Center when we did because I don’t think Taylor could have handled much more bad grades for all his effort. At the center, they taught him things we must have missed earlier in his schooling: grammar, clarity, and strong theses. I know that he is so much happier without the stress of research papers, and I’m happy when he is.”
Sean’s mother tells how he advanced his reading skills beyond his grade level through one-on-one tutoring at the LP Learning Center.
“I tried to work with him, but he was really frustrated with reading. He wouldn’t read the books for reports, and it got to the point that he stopped reading all other textbooks as well. I would ground him, but nothing helped. Nothing motivated him, and I asked him why he wouldn’t read. He told me the hardest thing to hear as a parent. He told me he was dumb. And you know, he actually believed it. And that broke my heart; I didn’t know what to do. I found the LP Learning Center online and gave them a call. They told me they had just the tutor in mind for Sean. I thought what could they do that I couldn’t, but Sean’s tutor worked with him one-on-one and gave him the tools to learn vocabulary, to read for the main message, and how to get the most out of a textbook. Now, Sean’s finished with his reading before I ask him if he’s done! His grades are up in all his classes, even math. To this day, I recommend the [LP Learning] center to my friends.”
